Tassimo Review and Giveaway

There's nothing that I enjoy more in the fall and winter than a steaming cup of tea or hot chocolate.  I like to sip peppermint hot chocolate at work during the day, while I opt for a mug of chamomile tea at night.  Warm beverages heat your bones and help to keep the chill of the cold air away.  Coffee house drinks are expensive and there's nothing like the convenience of brewing your favorite drinks in your own home.

The Tassimo Brewer will revolutionize how you enjoy hot drinks.  This home brewing system brews sensational cups of hot cocoa, flavored coffees, capuccinos, lattes, and rich teas in a matter of seconds.  Simply place a T DISC upside down in the brewer to allow the built in technology Intellibrew to scan the barcode on each T DISC.  This allows for identifying precise brewing instructions with the exact time, temperature, and water amount for a perfect drink each time.  Tassimo has partnered with fabulous beverage name brands like Gevalia, Twinings, and Maxwell House for the T DISCS to ensure the delicious taste that we all know and love.  The brewer will look fabulous on your kitchen counter and will do a wonderful job making sure you receive nothing but the best tasting beverages each time you use it.  With Christmas just around the corner, a Tassimo brewer would make a fantastic gift for a coffee or tea drinker.  Why not treat yourself too?

I was fortunate enough to receive a Tassimo T55 Single Cup Brewing system for review.  I am guilty of going to a coffee house and purchasing fancy drinks which are costly.  It's much nicer and more convenient to brew your own drinks at home.  I was also sent an extremely generous amount of T DISCS.  I had a lot of fun going through each package. The variety included chai tea lattes, espressos, peppermint hot chocolates, peppermint mochas, lattes, and more.  I really like that the peppermint drinks were sent to ring in the holidays in style.  



The machine was a little tricky to initially set up in the beginning.  My husband helped and it took some time.  You have to flush it out several times before you are allowed to make your first beverage.  The machine relies on a filter for its water supply.  Once you've completed the flushing stage, you're told to fill up the water reservoir in the back.  Make sure that you fill it up enough, or the Tassimo will blink indicating it needs more water.  I really love the look of the machine.  It's classy and sleek and gives my kitchen an added boost of style.  Who doesn't love chrome and black together?

As you can see, the machine is slim and compact.  It doesn't take up a lot of room on my countertop. 

When it was time to make my first beverage, I was excited.  I surveyed my beverage options and decided to go with a chai tea latte.  I inserted my T DISC upside down, pushed the start button and prepared myself to go into an uncharted tea latte world.  The brewing process was practically instant and about 15 seconds later I was presented with a steaming mug of something that smelled wonderful. The machine was not loud or noisy at all.  You would barely know it was on.  

The latte was sweet and full of fantastic flavor that reminded me of the holidays.  A biscotti or sugar cookie would pair excellently with the beverage for a mid-day pick me up.  I'm amazed that a small T DISC can turn into a liquid beverage.  I tried a peppermint hot chocolate and an espresso the other night and enjoyed those immensely. The peppermint hot chocolate was rich and luxurious and had a wonderful peppermint flavor that was instantly noticeable.  It was like drinking a cup of Christmas.  The espresso gave me the boost that I needed and it was truly excellent coffee.  

A Tassimo is perfect for parties as everyone can have a drink of their choice, instead of being served only one flavor option from a coffee pot.  Coffee lovers will rejoice at having so choices to delight their taste buds with. 

I'm really looking forward to trying the rest of the flavors and finding new favorites, as well as buying new options in the future.  For right now, my Tassimo is the best part about my mornings and my evenings.

  1. My kitchen needs a Tassimo because my husband and I can never agree on what to drink! He likes strong, dark brews of coffee and I enjoy creamier, lighter flavors and teas. A single-serve brewer like this is the perfect match to our madness!

  95. I am disabled and live way out in the middle of no where, so trips to town to enjoy a cup of anything is pretty much not in my cards of life. I would love this in my kitchen but it is something I could never afford. My only pleasure is sitting on my deck looking at a view alone.. A cup of warm specialty drink would make me feel like I was living the life.. even if it is in a dream world

    ReplyDelete
  96. I live way out in the middle of no where. I am disabled and I getting to town for just a elite pleasure drink is not on the list under my limited income. The only pleasure I get is to sit on my deck and look at the view.. It would be nice to sit out there with a warm drink in my hand and make me feel somewhat among the world of living the life. Even if it is only a dream. I could never afford one of these.
