Best gift

I recently purchased this brewing station as a gift to my mom in her new house and it has been a huge hit. Despite it being bought months ago I still get thanked today. It brews a perfect cup EVERY time. My favourite brew is Sweet Latte mixed with a Vanilla Espresso.

good choice

I chose the Tassimo because of the universality of the types of coffee I could get from it and it was a good choice. It was easy to put together and it works as expected. It would be better if I could refill the pods, but Bosch compensates the reasonable cost of the machine by capturing its buyers to the pods. I would recommend this machine.

A Must for any coffee and tea drinker

In short it makes coffee,tea,hot chocolate and more fast and well. Saves time, is cleaner than traditional ways to make them. Also it has its own filter for your tap water. Since I got it I can't imagine not having one now. I bought this one for my Father as he is older and deserves the convenience and quality this product gives. :)

Excellent machine

I received a Keurig as a gift last Xmas and returned it for this Tassimo. LOVE it! Fast, good quality coffee, good selection of flavours. Only problems: it's hard to see when the water is low (canister should wrap around so it's easier to see and the warning light is VERY basic with no codes but there are only about 3 things can go wrong. The latte cream labels tend to wrinkle so you need to smooth the barcode to read it. Caramel Mocciotta is AWESOME! Add Frangelico liqueur to a latte for great spanish coffee. You can use an espresso disk twice for a larger mug also.

great product

I purchased this so that I could make lattes and cappucinos, I have a Keurig for flavoured coffee. It is just what I was looking for. I wish some of the free samples came with the machine so it could be used right away without an additional purchase. I also wish there were more flavours available.

Great Machine

I had heard mixed reviews about this machine. I've had it for almost a month and I love it. My mom even loved it so much, she bought one for herself!

Very Satisfied - Better All Around vs. Keurig

I bought a Keurig at Boxing Day sales a year ago, tried it with a variety of K-cups, and returned it the next day. It made terrible coffee. When it has to use a standard 'program' for every variety of coffee, the result is mediocrity all around. After doing some reading in the past month I decided to try a Tassimo. I'm tired of [paying] Tim Horton's every day on the way to work and want a combination of a) really good coffee when I have time and don't want a huge cup; and b) a large cup of plain coffee for my commute, equivalent to a Tim's large. I'm very satisfied with the Tassimo. The specialty coffees, cappucinos and lattes are really good. And I think I can make a cup of 'regular' commuting coffee using two discs for about a buck, and hope that a supplier will come out with an 'XXL disc' for everyday coffee. There are a few discs that make larger cups that I have not been able to try yet. No Frills and Walmart have the Tassimo coffee very cheap, in fact the No Frills coffee section was 3/4 Tassimo and 1/4 Keurig, which surprised me. This is the better coffee maker [...]

Better than the rest

I had a Keurig and didnt know what I was missing before I got a TASSIMO. Firstly it doesnt matter what time of the day, the Tassimo brews fast and correctly...unless I used the Keurig in rapid succession, it would take forever to brew a cup. Any milk beverages in the Keurig were awful and tasted chemical, the Tassimo uses real (condensed i think) Milk. And while Keurig certainly has more selection, there are only so many donut store coffees I can drink...Tassimo lets me have real lattes, great cappucino and awesome Hot Chocolates...sorry Keurig, you've lost me for good.

Great Brew

I have 3 of the Tassimo makers. One at home and one at my office and one at my wife's. They've been used constantly for the last two years. Never had a problem with any. Makes a great coffee and you get no flavour transfer, from coffee to tea to hot choc. Easiest maker to use. Just put in the puck and it does all the calculations.
