Advantages: great tasting coffee
Disadvantages: expensive t-discs
Me and my wife have been through quite a few coffee machines in the past. Not that i have any say in them because i rarely drink coffee, its all for my wife. I must admit i do like the smell of fresh coffee in the mornings though, it reallys feels like home when i smell it.
I had doubts about the Tassimo to be honest, i looks like any other coffee machine that we have had that take pods i.e the sensio.
I bought it for my wife after months of agro and was quite suprised with it. I rarely drink coffee because it can be too strong for me but i found that we can get 2 cups of coffee out of one pod, The first one is strong but the second cup is exactly how i like it, very week.
I also like the fact that you can fill up the tank at the back of the machine ( 2litre capacity) and make as many cups as you want out of that one tank of water. Its nice not to have to refill the water into the machine after 3 cups of coffee.
The T-discs (pods) are a little expensive if you like to drink alot of coffee. Ive seen them ranging between £3.50 and £4.50 depending on where you shop. They are sometimes on offer at tesco and asda that i have noticed and you can sometimes pick them up for around £3.00
The machine is quick making a plain coffee however if you are wanting a coffee with the milk too you have to put in the milk pod after the coffee pod. It is ok if you are only making 1 or 2 cups but if you have friends round i would recommend boiling the kettle and making it the good old fashioned way.
The range of drinks you can make with the Tassimo are Tea, Hot chocolate, esspresso, Cafe Creme, Cappuccino, Latte and Macchiato. I Havent tried all the flavours but the tea is very nice, same as some of the coffees and my children love the hot chocolates.
The machine is very compact. It doesnt look like an eyesore like other coffee machines we have had. It looks sleek and it is very easy to clean.
It comes with clear instructions on how to clean the machine and they are very easy to understand.
I would recommend this to coffee and tea lovers, both the coffee, tea and hot chocolate taste beautiful and we have also had comments that the cofee taste just like it would in a coffee shop.
We brought this when it was on offer at £79.99 and so far it is worth every penny
Summary: buy this and you can have coffee shop coffee at a fraction on the price
