Best coffee brewer ever!

Summary: We love this coffee brewer! It took forever to receive it (okay maybe not that long but it seemed like forever) but it was well worth the wait. No more stale coffee or messy coffee grounds all over the counter. It brews fast & has a large removable water reservoir with a built in filter. The output amount is easily adjustable for regular size cups or travel mugs.
Summary: This is my 2nd Tassimo Coffee maker. I owned one years ago....but then decided to get a Keurig. I started out with the Keurig Mini, then upgraded to the Vue because of the Latte feature. However, the Keurig Lattes seemed watery to me. After some research....I decided to get a Tassimo again. I like the fact that they have expanded their Latte flavors from when I previously owned one of their machines. I also like that their pods have real milk....not powder.
Summary: I was totally dismayed to read the Caution Warning in the manual for the machine that stated, "Do not use chemically softened water". Scalding could occur. I called Tassimo and they verified that tap water which is chemically softened should not be used with T-Discs. I have a water softening system installed in my home and this would mean I would have to run out and buy bottled water to use the unit. Not my tap water!
Summary: This is our second Tassimo. Still makes great Coffee, Tea and Latte BUT the water has to be refilled after almost every large cup of whatever. Even then you cannot bank on the amount it will make each time. I touch the plus sign for the tea I brew every morning (same kind every day) but they come out different amounts every day. I don't understand that. We have had it for three weeks. It needs a larger water tank for sure!!!!!!
Summary: We've had the Bosch Tassimo T55 Single Cup Coffee Brewer for over 2 years and have enjoyed it tremendously. After deciding to purchase a single cup brewer I read many reviews in order to get the biggest bang for our buck. I chose this one bc of the versatility of what drinks the brewer will make.
Summary: To start with... I'm 70, and this is the very first "automatic" brewer I've ever owned or used. I used a traditional Melitta-style "pour-over" coffeemaker for all of my adult life, until I moved from Southern California to the Seattle area (i.e., "CoffeeLand") in '92. I walked into a Starbucks for the first time, explained my unfamiliarity, and asked about different sorts of coffeemakers... adding that I enjoyed strong, flavorful coffees.
Summary: We got this as a wedding present a few weeks ago, and so far it has worked almost perfectly. We really appreciate that it makes espresso and chocolate as well as coffee, and that the bar-code reader means we can make coffee even when half asleep. So why did I say "almost perfect"? One morning the water spewed out around the edges of the brewing chamber. It made a puddle on the counter, and left a mess of coffee grounds inside the machine.
