Some summer days call for the same need for caffeine, but hot coffee is not what you’re looking for. When we were in Palm Springs a few weeks back, those 115 degree days would not allow for a hot drink, it just didn’t work. Whether you’re in extreme heat, humidity, or are just looking for a cool cup of deliciousness, Gevalia has come out with Black Iced Coffee for the Tassimo Home Brewing System!!
Iced coffee is all the rage, and it’s a great taste mid-day that can give you a boost of your favorite flavor. My Take: I tried out the coffee one afternoon, prepared my mug filled with ice and got started. A tip to use, is to use a sturdier mug when making the iced drink, the hot water added to a glass of ice could possibly crack the glass! Just like every T-disc, the bar code lets the machine know the exact time, temperature, and amount of water to make each beverage unique and delicious. I really enjoy the regular Gevalia coffee and the Black Iced Coffee was by far a stronger, bolder blend for my palate. As your original ice may quickly melt, I added a second round of ice to my drink. This helped tone down the strong taste of the coffee for me, then I added my sugar. It was a nice drink, but it the flavor was stronger than I normally like.
If you enjoy cream in your coffee, there is also a new Sweet & Creamy Iced Coffee by Gevalia that has sweetner and creamer added in for you! You can get the Tassimo T-Discs online at http://www.tassimodirect.com and at stores like Target and WalMart. The Black Iced Coffee comes with 16 T-Discs for $8.99 and the Sweet & Creamy Iced Coffee comes with discs for 8 drinks.
I received the T-Discs for an honest review. The opinions are my tried-and-true experiences and were not influenced by any source.
