Summary: I bought this machine as I was looking to replace my morning Starbucks habit ($3.20) daily with less mess and effort than an espresso machine. I was not looking for a pod system as I didn't like the idea of being tied to one company's supply of product and the expense. However, I am now brewing cafe quality latte's for less than $0.75 per cup!
Summary: This was my first pod coffee maker purchase after years of being a diehard French press coffee drinker. I had an old Mr. Coffee machine on standby for times that I was too lazy to grind beans and boil water. That said, I did a lot of research before buying the Bosch Tassimo. I have a Bosch dishwasher and I love it so I figured the quality would be about the same- and so far I think I am right. The Tassimo is very quiet and very fast.
Summary: I like my Tassimo very much, the coffee is fantastic, although a little pricy. The only compaint I have about this machine is it overheats if you do too many cups in a row and this has happened to me twice now. Everything else I love but after three cups done one after another, the fourth one gets a red flashing light and nothing happens. Need to give it like 15 minutes before it resets and is cooled down.
Summary: My wife and I purchased this Tassimo unit from Bed Bath & Beyond roughly three years ago. In short, this machine consistently produces fine coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, and tea with little fuss. The primary reason we chose this machine over those of its primary competitor was for the various lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, chai tea, and other associated beverages that the Keurig cannot produce.
Decent machine but it lost Starbucks so I went to the K-cup's.

Summary: I was given this product a couple of years ago. The reason we were given this coffee brewer was because it had the Starbucks for it. However: They lost the Starbucks brand (and it went to the Kcup format). The advantage of this machine, in Canada, is that it will be getting the Tim Horton's Brand very soon. It works but nothing special.
Summary: Firstly, I gave the machine a 4 star rating purely because it works perfectly, it's not too wide or deep, so fits nicely where my old coffee peculator used to live, it has a large water reservoir so it doesn't need constant topping up, the water filter gives the drinks a lovely pure, clean taste, it's stylish and has lovely , sexy sleek lines, a wonderful add-on to any kitchen!
Summary: I use my machine every day and I love it. It's been around 5 months now so having lived with it for a while I felt in a better position to comment. First of all the machine was easy to set up and came mostly per-assembled, but I had to look online to find out how to pull the tip apart to give it a proper clean every now and then. The self-cleaning disc that comes with the machine is handy for a quick wash-through, however the tip and spout often get clogged with coffee.
