Decent machine but it lost Starbucks so I went to the K-cup's.
22 October 2012
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.
Summary: Discs are very expensive I have spent about £500 on coffee this year but I love the machine in fact I have two now, one at work and one at home. The expense of the discs is sort of made up for by the time saving but if like with me time is scarce and worth money then it pays for itself I suppose.
Summary: I do not drink huge amounts of cofffee, but when I do, I like good proper coffee, hence hardly ever use freeze dried muck from a jar. I can't be fussed using beans + cafetiere for one cup. So after reading copious reviews of all different machines avaliable - Tassimo, Nespresso et al, and taking in comments from friends who have similar, I chose the Tassimo.
Summary: Was very hesitant to purchase a coffee maker so many different types and costs involved, but no regrets this machine looks good so wife is happy and it produces excellent coffee at a reasonable price. It is so easy and quick to operate that it is and will be used. So many people I spoke to who have the machines where you put in the ground coffee and use a steamer end up not using them because of the mess and time it takes and so the machine ends up in a cupboard not...
Beats the Dolce Gusto and stomps all over the Senseo

Summary: I've used a Dolce Gusto for about three years, and thought it was a perfectly decent machine. This year I fancied a change, so after trying out the Senseo at CentreParcs (worst coffee I've ever tasted) I thought I'd give the Tassimo a go. The impressive range of drinks also looked interesting, and after a quick model comparison, I went for this one (T65).
Summary: I have now had this beverage maker for a few weeks. It has been very popular with my family. My son has also bought one. It has been better than I expected. Quiet, easy to clean and as there is a wide range of coffee's and other drinks available there is something for everyone. Bosch help in choosing which ones to try by offering £20's worth of free vouchers, but you still have to pay postage.
Summary: great machine, realy quick and easy to use. pros: quick to use. easy to maintain. not much cleaning required. quite a few variety of drinks available. comes with a water filter Cons. Very small quantity of drinks. (the reason why this got 4 stars not 5) Some drinks arnt hot enough, even the hot chocolate can be drunk in one gulp a minute after its brewed. Tassimo aint brought a new machine out in ages, could mean they'll be producing less and less pods.
Summary: I bought the Tassimo T65 to make quick drinks without having to be bothered with grinding coffee beans and other such mundane tasks. When I'm in a rush. I being using this for over a year now and have found no problems with it. Its been reliable and has not clogged and still makes frothy Latte after all this time.
