Tassimo keeps secrets!
19 November 2014
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.
Summary: I have contacted Tassimo several times by email, they have yet to respond. About every 4 or 5 Lattes that I make it wont steam the milk cup. The red light comes on & even if I take it out & try to do it again it still gives me a red light. So I then have to throw the milk cup away.
Summary: The machine works fine as it should, but the drinks it produces taste nothing like what you would get in a coffee shop, i think it is the milk pods that are the problem, they are too sweet for me, and if you dont stir the drink you find a load of sweet substance at the bottom which tastes awful for...
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.
Summary: I have had 3 other Tassimo machines & this one is awful...does not hold much water & an awful job to fill ..also the little stand is a nightmare to try & get out....wish I had ordered the same model as we had previously ...easy to fill hence the reason this is our 4th.
Summary: Machine looks OK, bit bigger than expected but I didn't buy it for its looks. Having owned a Nespresso machine that failed just as the guarantee expired I was looking for a coffee machine that produced a decent cup of coffee but more cost effective.
