I’ve been looking for a method of making a decent cup of coffee for some time now. After doing a lot of research,i decided to invest in a tassimo machine and have not been disappointed. It does a perfect job every time and the only catastrophe i’ve had was choosing a cup that proved to be a bit too small after putting the coffee onto the frothed milk. Sometimes the machine waits a few seconds whilst reading the barcode and bursting into action but it is only seconds. It is a bit noisy once the water is transferred from the tank into the heater but,around a minute later,there is a welcoming cup to enjoy. I am not a tea person,so cannot comment on that aspect. The everyday coffee is very good,as is the chocolate. My favourite is the cappuchino in a tall glass with chocolate sprinkled on the top. Come to think of it,i’m off to have one now. Writing reviews is thirsty business and i deserve one.
Given that’s the point of a coffee machine it gets 5 stars. I’m impressed by how quickly it warms the water and serves the drink. The coffee is piping hot too. The display showed ‘clean reader’. The bosch helpline were helpful in a not-very-helpful way – the customer service lady looked up the error in the product manual (it doesn’t mention it) and then the service manual (surprisingly it tells you to clean the reader). Then the amazon customer service machine kicked in and sent a new unit the same day. In summary, if you’re ok with spending the money on the tassimo tabs then i recommend this machine.
I ordered this item as nearly new and well its immaculate i have never risked this before but because of the price when new i had to find an alternative way to buy one. I am so pleased with this machine and delivery was brilliant and well packed. Very easy to set up and the t discs actually do taste great, unlike some previous machines we have used. When researching which one to buy alot of people mentioned struggling to buy the discs but i have not had a problem at any supermarket that i go to. Other options are to order from amazon who always have stock. Its great to be able to offer guests something that little bit more special and every guest has enjoyed the drinks. Its also no where near as bulky as i was expecting even though the water tank is larger than other models. In pictures this model looks so long but its not. It fits so well on the worktop and looks very stylish. I would certainly recommend this item.
- Great little machine
- Love it!
- Now,no more instant coffee
If i could find a pod that was actually nice i would probably use it alot more , the suchards hot chocolate is not nice either to my surprise, my teenage son doesn’t like it either , the actual machine is good though.
This is better than the dolce systems: the pods contain milk rather than milk powder. Also the water is pre-measured by the machine so there is no guessing (admittedly some dolce machines also have this but in a fiddly way)good cups of coffee and tea and you have much more of a choice – several types of cappuccinos for example.

Received one as a present from my family and was so impressed that i bought a second one for the office. Makes an excellent beverage in no time at all, without all the fuss that some of the very much more expensive machines need. The provision of the brita water filter is a real bonus and the self-cleaning facility is excellent. The only downside i have found is that it’s become very popular in my office, so i’m never short of visitors around coffee break time.Argos sells it for £149 so the amazon deal at around £99 is obviously the way to go. Completely sold on this machine. Buy the t-discs on-line from amazon and save over 60% on running costs. Great machine and thoroughly recommended.
We absolutely love our tassimo machine. It’s great that it has the little screen to show you how far along the drink is. The first time you pop the drink nozzle out can seem like you’re going to break it but we have been taking it out all the time now and it’s fine. It tells you when you need to refill the water as well which is great. Make sure you run the service t-disk first. Ours came with the filter but we live in an area where the water is ok so when the filter ran out we didn’t replace it but they aren’t that expensive so you can if you like filtered water. We have also bought the hot water disk as well off amazon which means we can still have our loose teas without using the kettle. In fact we’ve thrown our kettle away.We’d never get rid of our little machine now, it’s a staple in our kitchen.
Was very hesitant to purchase a coffee maker so many different types and costs involved, but no regrets this machine looks good so wife is happy and it produces excellent coffee at a reasonable price. It is so easy and quick to operate that it is and will be used. So many people i spoke to who have the machines where you put in the ground coffee and use a steamer end up not using them because of the mess and time it takes and so the machine ends up in a cupboard not being used. Compared to instant coffee yes the pods are a bit expensive, but what you get is a very satisfying cup of coffee at a fraction of the price you pay on the high street. Add a bodum milk frother plunger type for just over a tenner and it is even better.
I’ve had a senseo machine for about 4 years now, and used nespresso machines several times in hotels / apartments and i can honestly say that the versatility and quality of the drinks this produces far exceeds the competition. The simplicity of the system is excellent – there’s less mess than a senseo machine as you don’t end up with a wet ‘teabag’ full of coffee after you’ve made your drink and it’ll do latte’s etc to keep the mrs happy :-)the hot chocolate is delicious, if a little pricey, and the costa coffee is just like having your own barista in the kitchen – but cheaper and more convenient. The drinks are produced at what i’d consider to be an ideal temperature – hot enough to be enjoyable and stay warm for the time it takes to drink them, but also cool enough to drink pretty much straight away – i hate waiting for tea from a kettle to cool down from boiling – if i’ve made a drink i want to drink it, not blow on it for 10 minutes.
This is our first coffee pod machine and i must admit it has proved to be a very good choice. Easy to use and set up and makes a lovely hot drink depending on what pod you insert. The bar code reader is a good idea as you simply pop in the pod and press the button and then wait maybe 30 sec to get a lovely hot coffee or chocolate. The only downside i can see is the cost of the pods so we will not be using it more than once a day especially when it comes to the tea but saying that if we did use it every time i think you would soon loss that taste of drinking something nice and special.
I got this for my husband for xmas. He loves coffee and i do not so using an old style coffee maker with a filter was just not worth the hassle for one person. An added bonus for me is the hot chocolate that you can get for the machine. The machine itself is very easy to use, simply put a disc in and press a button.There is a varied range of discs available in most supermarkets and the tassimo website offers a much wider range. I am not sure how long the offer is on for but when we registered our machine with tassimo online we received a £20 discount voucher for the online store.
It had been on ‘my wish list’ for quite a while. It’s absolutely fantastic as it does all the coffees as well as tea and drinking chocolate-spoilt for choice. So easy to use and to clean. Makes a very tasteful drink. When using it the aroma is great. Amazon have made it so much easier and cheaper too. I use their ‘subscribe and save’for a delivery every 3 months. They are cheaper than anywhere else that i have looked.
Simple and work every single time. Does not give very large cupful so medium cups only. Please remember to clean the tank out every refill to ensure no bugs.
I had been thinking about buying this for a while and regret taking so long to buy. It is very quick, the drinks are very hot (i always order extra hot lattes when in coffee shops)and there is a vast variety of flavours to chose from. I love suchards hot chocolate and costa are bringing out pods too which swayed my decision. When registering the product, i received a £20 voucher so used it to stock up on a selection of pods from the tassimo website – latte, caramel latte, twinnings tea, espresso etc. Very fast dispatch and free delivery for orders over £35 (even when voucher is used to take it below this value). Small drink sizes – need to use small cups or if you like large drinks like me, 2 pods each time to fill a mug. Also, this product was £89 for ages. When i ordered it was £98 so beware of amazon price fluctations.
First tassimo, now i would not be without one for good coffee although the t. Disc are rather on the expensive side. This particular machine has all the extras you could want and i bought it on amazon for < £60.
What a wonderful machine, so easy to work and takes all the guesswork out of making a cup of coffee. It takes you through each step using the display screen so you can’t go wrong. Some might think that the cost of the coffee discs are expensive but if you think of getting a perfect cup of coffee each time it is certainly worth it. It also makes tea and chocolate which is an added bonus. My wife and i absolutely love it.
Great product i look forward to coffee now the hot chocolate leaves something to be desired i thoight it would be the same as when you get it from the coffee shop but was disappointed tasted like the stuff you get out of vending machines cappuccino are great though if you are a hot chocolate fan like me then you are better off getting the milka flavour as opposed to the suchard or cadbury one.
I chose this item as it was on special at amazon. I have been looking a long time and couldn’t bring myself to spending the money. As amazon had this model on half price(includes filter) i couldn’t refuse. I am delighted with it , so is my husband and son. I have already spent a fortune on coffee pods but i don’t mind as everything is so nice. Not sure when the novelty will wear off. If you can get hold of one with amazon discounts, go for it.
Had this coffee maker a few months now and it’s excellent, the water filter is great, use the machine 20 x daily, still on my first britax filter cartridge. The tassimo coffees are lovely, the costa range of cappucino and americano makes a great cup. No complaints, glad i made the move from the crap senseo machine and it’s weak pods. Makes a perfect coffee every time, no mess, just insert the capsule and hit the start button.
Very good machine, i still have it after years and years.
I wish i had bought one of these years ago, instead of the drip-type machine, which left me drinking stale coffee by the third cup. I have never had a drip coffee machine last much longer than a year, but bosch quality should improve on that. I already have bosch double oven and hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher, power drills, and numerous other appliances,and never a failure yet. I now enjoy a fresh cup of coffee made within a minute or so, and the range of drinks, from coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate, and lattes should keep me happy for a long while.
This is my first coffee machine, and had read al ot of review before deciding on this one, because we live in a hard water area we needed one with a filter not many others have this, the coffees we have tried have all been great =fave is the latte, it is very quick (40-60secs for drink to be ready) and hardly any noise, small footprint and looks great in the kitchen we have had it for 2 weeks now and have not used the kettle once, even for tea we just use the filter disc for hot water, and because of the filter tastes greathighly recommend, and we got it half price 🙂 £70.
Unfortunately my rise in caffeine intake since it’s purchase has also probably shortened my life expectancy, but hey, who wants to live forever. Wife loves it too for hot chocolate. Could never go back to ground coffee, mess and fuss. I’ll probably get one for the office now.
