For me the perfect espresso has a strong taste of coffee and an equally (or less) strong taste of bitterness. After testing out 8 different brands, the one that was able to achieve this, and become my favourite Tassimo espresso, was the Jacobs Espresso Ristretto (click here to check out my Espressos review).
Even though I’m more of a Latte or Cappuccino drinker, I found this drink to be pleasant and will definitely buy myself some more in the future.
For everyone out there who loves an espresso, or who always runs late for work, I highly recommend you pick up a packet of Jacobs Espresso Ristretto before any of the rest, it’s my favourite and I’m sure it’ll be yours too.
Out of all the tassimo Lattes I tested this one against, Gevalia Latte Macchiato (click here to be taken to my Latte review) came out on top for all categories. The way it managed to have the right balance of creaminess, sweetness and coffee without being overpowering was just very impressive and couldn’t be matched by any of the other brands.
As I said in my review, out of all the tassimo drinks I’ve ever tasted, this is the only one that I think tastes better than those found in Starbucks or Costa. If that’s not a big enough selling point then I don’t know what is.
For me a good Americano should taste strong without being too bitter or acidic. It may have taken quite a bit of testing but I have found the Tassimo coffee achieves this for me – the Carte Noire Cafe Long Intense (click here to check out my Americano review). After giving it a try I knew straight away I’d have to buy more and I’d imagine this is how you’ll feel as well.
If you really love an americano then you can’t look past this drink.
Jacobs Cappuccino Classic
I’d imagine for most people the cappuccino should have a good balance between foam, milk and coffee, and I’d also imagine you would only expect to get this quality of coffee at a Starbucks or Costa. Well I’m going to tell you otherwise because the Jacobs Cappuccino Classic (click here to check out my Cappuccino review) has done this to near perfection.
Out of all the cappuccinos I tested this one was easily the best and I will definitely be ordering it again!
Best Caramel Latte
For me, a caramel latte isn’t supposed to be packed full of caramel. All I want is enough to satisfy that urge for a sweet taste without going to far, to the point where it is sickening.
This was something that the L’OR Caramel Latte Macchiato (click here to check out Caramel Latte Review) done very and is why I think it’s the best caramel latte Tassimo have available.
