I am no expert ,but I know a good cup of coffee. This and most of the tassimo range I have tried so far is good. No let down as yet. Thanks

Strong tasting coffee
I find this is a good replacement for Kenco Caffe Intenso.

WATERED DOWN Jacobs Cafe Creme!
I consider myself as somewhat a coffee expert in as much as I have tried numerous coffee beans from around the world in our Miele Built In Coffee Machine! However, our Tassimo is a fabulous machine for convenience and drinking different blends. My favourite is Jacobs Cafe Creme as it is a good quality strong coffee. Milky coffee is not for me. Just enough for me as I could never drink a full mug of XL coffee at one time. My partner has tried almost all the full coffee range in all the different makes and enjoys a large selection. The XL version of this Cafe Creme is just a watered down version..the same coffee but with extra water! When I run out I use the XL version. I just pull the coffee cup away and let the extra run into an overflow cup :-) It's all a matter of taste.

Intenso ? INTENSO ??!! NO !
Yet again I've been fooled by Tassimo partners seemingly random nomenclature.. The only way to make these pods 'intense' is to stop the water after about 2/3rds of the intended dose. Just bought a bunch of these too.....gah
By default these are outrageously wishy washy.
(note:Using this review word for word for LOR XL Intenso which has exactly the same problem)

Poor quality coffee for a Jacob's brand
I like Jacobs Caffe Crema Intenso, so decided to try the XL version. I wish I hadn't bothered. Much of the extra volume is from the large amount of crema, which ruins the flavour. Poured into a glass the crema is about 1 cm thick, far too much. The only way to drink this is to skim the crema off. Then stir the coffee (essential with Tassimo as most of the flavour is at the bottom of the cup). Now it tastes good but is no longer "XL" in size. You are better off sticking with the original size.
I don't understand the obsession with crema. It adds nothing to the coffee apart from the appearance. It's just froth, a by product. When it's artificially created (as it seems to be here) then something is very wrong.
