Summary: I love this machine because it was one of the first ones out that could make a latte. My only complaint is how expensive the pods are and that they are hard to find in most stores. I believe target just started carrying the pods though.
Summary: I received my order yesterday, great shippment time...however for some reason the bar's on the T-Disks will not allow my Tassimo unit to switch over to AUTO after the heating process, instead it will only let me fill coffee cups in the "manual" mode, so I thought my unit was bad BUT I put in another T disc (french vanilla) and my unit worked perfectly. Hummmm. Have you had any other responses from other purchases with my same issue?
Summary: ??Have you ever gone somewhere with a friend to grab a cup of coffee, not in a star-big-bucks but just a diner, and been talking away and you stop and say 'wow, this is good coffee'...your friend agrees; you both look around and see that they grind/brew their coffee with some custom made machine. Well this is the same type of coffee you get out of the Tassimo when you brew any of the regular coffees. I expected OK coffee.
Versatile and Easy... but tough to find the T-discs!

Summary: The Tassimo machine is very easy to use; just insert the disk (upside down) and close the lid. Easy to fill the water reservoir. A little noisy when activated, but very tolerable. GREAT Suchards hot chocolate ! Very good Tea (Twinings Earl Grey). Good Espresso (Gevalia). Good coffee (Gevalia). Very Good coffee (Kenco classic roast). Need more selection of T-discs; the same (Gevalia) selections are all that is available at the stores.
Summary: Let me preface my comments by saying that the machine works beautifully--truly a piece of engineering. No muss, no fuss and very reliable temperature in the beverages. It has solved the errant coffee ground problem in our kitchen (which my wife loves!) HOWEVER, the choices for coffee are VERY limited. If you like French Roast or other varieties, this machine is not for you. If you're down with the same Gevalia cup every morning, then by all means this is your machine.
Summary: I didn't buy the Tassimo 1200 through Amazon, but I bought it yesterday and so far I really like it. A few things to know: it does not come with any t-discs so buy some when you purchase your machine. Also, this model is less expensive because it does not have a water purifying system in it, and the 1400 does. I have been filling it with water from my refrigerator purifying system, but that it not necessary.
Summary: I have had my Tassimo for just over a month now (received it 10/4/05) and I am in love with it!!! I have all the different T-Discs now since I can get them online from many places. I got my last order of T-Discs from Gevalia online, including the European varieties. I can have Tea, Hot Chocolate as good as any I have ever had, Cappuccinos, Lattes, Espresso, Crema Coffee (better than the "fake crema" on the senseo), Bold coffee, mild coffee.
Summary: The downsides to this are it is incredibly loud when running (I have to shut my office doors to make a cup of coffee) and the directions for set up and making the coffee were vague and confusing. Luckily the machine is pretty foolproof and you can figure it all out. The upsides are no messy filters, the coffee is good, and it is quick. I would recommend it despite the noise.
Summary: We love this machine! It is quick, clean, quiet.... fabulous. We have done all the combinations of the coffee flavors available. The cappaccino is unbelievable, it is a two step process unlike other machines so it is so authentic in flavor and look. It came with a great recipe book for more creative coffee beverages that has us really inspired. We do look forward to more flavored coffees to be introduced though as it is limited.
Summary: I bought this because it is the only system with a quality coffe to go with it (starbucks). This is actually better than I thought. It really makes a great cup of coffee; equivalent to the brew from starbucks. HOWEVER the "capuccio" system from Gevalia is only OK. I prefer to just add milk rather than that disk.
