Why I say stiff is because, Tassimo is a good machine with a range of well known brands of beverages, such as Starbucks coffee.

From a strategic point of view, Nespresso is not having an easy time. Externally, it has to fend off competitors such as Tassimo that is expanding on its market (Europe).

In addition, it has to worry about losing its capsule business to ECC (Ethical Coffee Company) and Sara Lee that is selling Nespresso compatible capsules.
