Summary: It's impossible for me to go back to any other coffee maker. It's true that the cup is perfect every time, and is very intuitive to use. On a whim I can have a latte or espresso, or regular coffee. I only wish more coffee makers would make the t discs because that is the only place it is limited. It would be even better if the discs were recyclable.
Great machine, easy to use, virtually no clean up after use.

Summary: This is the easiest coffee machine I have ever used. Its' so simple a child could work it. Just put the T disc in, close the cover and press the button. It takes less than a minute to brew the perfect cup. Fully adjustable to your own taste. I think it is better than the Keurig only because there are a wider choice of drinks available and it can make Cappucino. Highly recommend this machine.
If you like the taste of dishwater, this is the machine for you!

Summary: I wanted a drinks machine for my office that made a variety of hot beverages, not just coffee. I have a Nespresso at home and the coffee is superb! After reading hundreds of reviews, I decided that Tassimo was the best option and splashed out on one as well as £40 worth of capsules. Boy, what a mistake I made! Although relatively easy to use, the drinks can only be described as nasty. Believe me, I have tried them all - hot chocolate, latte, mocha, cappuccino etc.
Summary: This item was listed as new?? But when it arrived the listing had changed to say this item is a second and could show signs of scratches and the box might be damaged!!! If an item is listed as new surely it should be new not a second in a tatty old box???
Summary: Had mine for a year now, and finally put it in the bin as I was weary of the output: slightly odd tasting coffee-flavoured warmish drinks. Passable, but not brilliant. Before ripping me to shreds for being a neanderthal, I first tested this machine with a selection of the available coffee pods and bottled water, and settled on Costa Americano as being the least worst. What comes out of the machine, even after a descaling, is bitter, metallic and none too warm.
Summary: The machine itself is fantastic - no fuss, no warm-up time, no mess... I used to have a Gaggia, but found myself using the caffetiere more and more, purely because it was too cumbersome to make a coffee. With this one, it takes about 20 seconds from start to finish, and the quality of the drink is generally OK. Now, this brings us to why four stars and not five. The problem is that the choice of what you can brew it comparatively limited.
Summary: I love this machine. It is so quick and simple to use.. Ideal for first breakfast coffee as it is simple to obtain cappuccino or latte by simply preheating the milk in the microwave. If you are a frequent drinker of coffee what more could you want. A treat if you love your coffee expresso.
