Not impressed by 2 x £10 reward vouchers
29 July 2014
Summary: No problems - so far - with this model of coffee machine, BUT only 3 stars as not impressed with the £20 in 'reward' vouchers which you have to spend on the Tassimo site. Firstly you have to register - page after page of info wanted by Tassimo (you don't have to provide it all but the pages still come up asking for it). Once completed, you receive an email with the codes to spend the £20. However, you get TWO codes, each for £10, and you can only use one per order.
Summary: I love this little machine. I was a bit sceptical as I thought that you couldn't get that 'barista taste' from a home appliance but I was wrong. Some may say that the capsules are expensive (40p each) but I haven't bought a 'proper' Starbucks or Costa since! A good saving I think.
Summary: I bought this knowing from others who bought it how good it was, when I opened the box I was like what the hell the reason you ask... Well it was the " instructions" on the machine just ignore that, when I looked in the manuals provided it's easy to set up, once you've set it up you can start using it, best buy I've made it was well worth it
Summary: Only had the machine 3 days but so far so good. It looks good and the coffees it makes are on par with bought versions at well known retailers. Great product for the price and the process of making coffees couldn't be simpler, simply place pod in machine and hit the start button, cup of hot tasty coffee within a couple of minutes. Now having fun tasting the different coffees available.
No! Not for Latte or Cappucino and don't expect the taste of a Costa.

Summary: I bought this thinking it would replicate the half decent coffee found at my local Costa / Starbucks / Nero (delete as applicable). The fact that it is marketed in Costa is somewhat misleading taste wise. Yes it is all convenient producing a hot drink with minimal fuss but what you get is a coffee that tastes like it was made with coffee whitener, due to the UHT milk they have to have use for the shelf life.
Summary: I am very pleased with this machine, it is very easy to set up and use. I'd say 10 -15 minutes to set up ready for 1st use. Once set up the hot drinks are instantanious. I was a little worried drink machines often have the reputation of not heating the liquid up enough resulting in lukewarm coffee etc, but this is definitely not the case here. The drinks are piping hot and delicious, plus the aroma is wonderful.
Summary: A friend told me about tassimo he rated this product highly. So for the price I bought one. Wish I had bought one ages ago. Since I received my tassimo I have not boiled the kettle to make a coffee. I go straight to my tassimo.
Summary: It didn't even last 1 week.. Turned it on this morning only to have it flood my counter it continiues to flow water.. Tried this for a bit of extra variety as I also have a Keurig that is 2 yrs old now with no issues, just goes to show who makes a better machine here!!
Summary: We have two Tassimos in the office, a T20 and a T40, and I've got the T55 for personal home use. Between every other Tassimo machine I can't really find a good reason not to buy the T20 as it does all the others do for less money. The T55 however has a very, very neat size of beverage regulator so you can decide to have a shorter or a longer drink without any fiddling, unlikely every other Tassimo.
