Summary: I have purchased single-serve brewers in the past, and I've never been satisfied with the weak coffee they brewed. Not so with my Tassimo! It's fast, remarkably quiet, and fabulous at producing a strong (not bitter!) cup of coffee. I've tried several brands of the discs, and they're all delicious. Clean-up consists of pulling out the disc and throwing it away. I love it, and I think it was well worth the money. I'm so glad a friend recommended it to me.
Summary: I purchased the Bosch after trying Senseo and Keurig coffee makers and yes, it makes the best tasting cup of coffee of all of the single cup makers in my opinion (if you use the Starbucks T-disk). Because the disks are not recyclable, this is incredibly environmentally unfriendly, also much more expensive than brewing a pot of coffee. The disks are hard to find other than online, the only place I have found them is Macy's.
Summary: This machine was for my daughter. She reviewed and talked with a lot of her friends before getting me to buy this machine for her. The t-discs are available at a lot of stores (not wal-mart) and she says she is extremely happy with it.
Summary: Tassimo has the worst ordering system I have ever encountered. For the last four weeks, we've been unable to receive an order. We placed one on-line, nothing came. We called: things were back-ordered, so we changed the order for t-discs that were in stock. That order didn't come. We next spoke to a supervisor who assured us that the third order would come. Nope, it didn't. Once again: because discs aren't available.
Summary: It's winter time and where I live, it can get really, really cold. One of my favorite things about the cold weather is sitting down with a hot beverage. When I was told that I had the opportunity to review the Tassimo T45 Hot Beverage Machine, I immediately thought "Merry Christmas to me!" This fancy little machine allows you to make whatever type of hot beverage has your mouth watering.
Summary: I'm not impressed with this machine, got one a couple weeks ago a Walmart. I have tried several times to obtain a decent froth/foam for both cappuccino or Latte macchiato without results; i can get better foam with a small whey protein mixer. the hot chocolate is not a real one, my daughter still prefers Tim Horton's hot chocolate.
Summary: I purchased this machine because I like to drink various drinks as the whim takes me. Tassimo allows you to do this. Also, most of the time I'm by myself, so don't need to make a large pot of coffee. Before I made the purchase, I was comparing Keurig with the Tassimo. The reason I chose the Tassimo was a) the price b) the T-discs were more available than the K-cups and the only K-cups the stores here carried were Van Houtte coffee, which I detest c) reviews said the...
Summary: Easy to use, great tasting latte and cappuccino, much cheaper than coffee house, what more could I ask for? The answer is: nothing. Okay, maybe a smaller unit I can buy as a 2nd unit to keep on my desk at work. Instead of spending $4-$5 dollars everyday for a coffee house latte on the way to work; I just make a double or triple latte straight into my insulated travel mug and I'm all set for the morning. I also enjoy the bolder brews such as the Starbucks Verona T-discs.
Summary: I've owned one of these for a year, purchased at Bed, Bath, & Beyond (I guess this qualifies as "beyond"). I'm not very impressed by this product, in spite of the hype and high price. I bought this (instead of Senseo or Keurig) because it was totally automated, and had this way cool bar code reader. Huh... I also wanted Starbucks coffee, which wasn't available from the other brands. First off, I've found that the coffee tends to be either too weak or too strong.
Summary: I have been using the Tassimo Machine since the first edition was put on the market. Overall, this is a terrific idea and makes having every day cappucino a breeze. However, enough time has elapsed for the company to adress much needed improvements. I have upgraded each time a new machine arrives on the market only to find the same faults inherent in the original.
