Summary: We purchased this as a replacement for an older version. I love it! It actually makes hotter coffee than my older version. I love that it makes a real capuccino vs the cappuccino flavored like the other machines have.
Summary: The taste of this thing is Good and I don't even Drink coffee! I was hesitant to buy this at first simply because there are more things for Kurieg rather than Tassimo ever since they lost Starbucks as their major vender but others have stepped up! And I must say I love the teas, coffees, mochas, lattes, hot chocolate is ok but not bad, love the Expressos!
Summary: When I first got my tassimo, I loved it. Then they had a recall on the t-cups because of burning problems. Since then my latte and other milk cups never completely empty and leak all over. I'm ready to look for something else. The milk cups are very expensive if you buy them on their own.
A word of caution regarding ordering Tassimo T-disks onlne
26 October 2013
Summary: It's been about 6 months since my original post below. Still love my Tassimo, but some lessons learned regarding ordering T-disks online. The primary distributor of Tassimo t-disks, whom I am not allowed to openly name, has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau; 70+ formal complaints against it for extremely slow order processing (weeks, not days) coupled with exceptionally poor customer service. If you google "Tassimo t disks," it is the first hit.
