Coffee pads / capsules / T-discs

Post by kithu » Mon, 29 Aug 2011 2:38 am

Hello Guys

Could some one tell me which is widely available in Singapore - Coffee pads(Senseo or any other brand) OR Tassimo T-Discs. It would be of great help if you could also give me the price details as well. I am planning to move to Sg soon and want to know which machine should I bring with me.

Thanks.
Kithu

You might want to also take into consideration, that they are obviously hard to move, given that nobody here has heard of them. That means, because they are imported, and in broken lots (nobody keeps storerooms here due to rental costs), they are going to be damned expensive. AND, if that's not bad enough, most stores, even those with computerized inventory systems, still don't order new stock until the old stock is gone. This especially so for stocks that don't move. As it will come via sea shipping, it will take from 6 weeks to 3 months for new stock to arrive.

My suggestion is the remember that you are not at home and will have to make do with alternatives. If you want the convenience of home, maybe you should stay there. Most of us have to do without our favourites but such is the life of an expatriate.
