Review Of The Tassimo Single Cup Coffee Brewing System - A Good Cup Of Coffee In An Instant

Updated on May 15, 2019

A Great Cup Of Coffee Today, Good Value In The Long Run

Coffee. That warm, comforting beverage many of us cannot do without on those bleary eyed mornings. There are several ways you can get your morning coffee, there's the 'moka pot' or 'macchinetta', which is a stove top coffee maker from Italy. You can also make coffee in a 'Mr.Coffee' type percolator. Last and most certainly least is instant coffee.

Instant coffee is nasty. I don't even bother with instant. I won't be saying much more about instant.

Two of the above mentioned methods will produce an excellent cup of coffee relatively quickly and easily. Their main drawback is the cleanup, there are lots of parts to clean and the spent coffee beans can get messy.

A Cup Of Coffee, Quick And Easy, No Mess

Enter the Tassimo single cup coffee and warm beverage brewing system.

The Tassimo produces a great cup of coffee much faster than the previously mentioned processes and involves very little preparation and cleanup.

In less than three minutes you can be enjoying a pretty impressive cup of cappuccino or a latte macchiato.

The price per cup is still way cheaper than buying it at a popular café. Ranging from 0.31$ to 1.12$ per cup the Tassimo beats the coffee shops by several dollars and pays for itself in savings rather quickly. Beverage selection is quite impressive, however you may find it difficult to find some of the less popular flavors locally. I have seen all the standards at my local retailers, regular coffee, latte, cappuccino and the chai tea latte, however if you check online there are many more options to choose from.

I bought a Tassimo coffee maker about two years ago. I am very satisfied with the quality of the machine itself as well as the coffee that it produces. I had first bought one for my parents about three years ago and it is still going strong. So far both units needed to be descaled only once. That is the only maintenance needed and the machine tells you when it is needed.

My wife and I drink coffee. We used to buy our coffee from Tim Horton's every day. That was about three dollars per day, plus the yummy breakfast sandwich up-sell. So that's close to five bucks every day. This Tassimo is helping us save money by making our own coffee and breakfast. We also find that the coffee from the tassimo is much more consistent in taste than the Timmies coffee. Sometimes the Timmies coffee is bitter, and other times it's good.

I also got the t-disc carrousel to hold all of my favorite coffee and tea discs. My wife's personal favorite is the Chai Tea Latte. My daughter also enjoys drinking hot chocolate from the Tassimo. She really gets a kick out of being able to make it herself. It's easy enough for a child to use.

In conclusion I will say that if you are a coffee drinker and are looking for a good quality coffee machine that is fast and easy to use. The Tassimo just may the machine be for you. This high quality coffee maker is produced by BOSCH. You do not need to get the expensive model. They will try to sell you the higher priced one by saying that the cheaper model will calcify in a year and has no replaceable parts. That is not true. All that is needed to be done is to run a little descaler through the machine. When descaling is needed a yellow light will appear prompting you to initiate the descaling cycle. This runs the solution through the machine a little at time cleaning out all the guts of the machine. I then proceed to thoroughly rince the machine with fresh water using the cleaning disc. Mine is still operating very well after almost two years of flawless operation.
