Tassimo Review and Giveaway

I love coffee.  But if you are anything like me it takes forever to drink a full pot.  By the time I get around to finishing it off, the coffee has been sitting on the burner for so long it just isn’t that great anymore.  But brewing a smaller pot throughout the day is too much work at times.  As sad as it is to admit, there are many days I am doing good to shower, let alone brew 4 small pots of coffee. 

This is where the Tassimo T20 Brewbot comes in.  Now unless you live under a rock or in a cave, I am sure you have heard of Tassimo.  These babies are all the rage lately.  And I am happy to say that I understand the draw.

Let’s take a look at what this baby can do!

  • Makes coffee, tea, latte, cappuccino,  crema, espresso, and hot chocolate.
  • Makes drinks in about 1 minute.
  • Includes an exclusive flow through water heater for faster, quieter brewing. 
  • Space saving design ideal for apartments, dorm rooms and counter tops.
  • Smart bar code technology allows the brewer to adjust each beverage with the proper temperature, pressure and water amount.

So now if you want a cappuccino and the kids are asking for hot chocolate and the hubby wants just black coffee, you can do it all.  And in about 1 minute per drink. 

For this review I received one Tassimo T20 Brewbot in black and 2 kinds of coffee to try it out.  I had all these great pictures taken of the T20 in action and then my camera did something weird while I was transferring the pictures and I lost them all but one.  Blah!  Oh, but you really have to take my word for it.  This thing is awesome.

This single serve brewer is so easy to setup and use.  I will be honest, I usually leave set up of all things to my husband.  But when this showed up, I was so excited to try it out I did it myself.  First thing they recommend is a good washing before you use your Tassimo T20.  This will remove any dust or other things that don’t go well with coffee. Unless you like a bit of extra flavor with your coffee.  I don’t judge. 

Once you are ready to use, just add water to the reservoir and turn the machine on.  You will then move the container department into the closed position and place you mug under the spout.  Push the green illuminated button  and sit back and let the Tassimo T20 Brewbot do all the work! 

The Tassimo uses T-Discs for brewing.  Each disc has a bar code on it that the Tassimo reads and then adjusts the water temperature and levels depending on the drink.  

The Tassimo T20 makes over 40 varieties of hot and cold beverages including cappuccinos, chai lattes, tea, and coffee all in about a minute.  It really does eliminate the need for a coffee pot and separate espresso machine.  This ingenious little product is also small so it does not take up much counter space. 

Besides the countless drink options for the Tassimo T20 you can also purchase a Color Kit that will allow you to change out the back splash and cup holder sections of the machine.  Allowing for a completely customizable look that will fit any kitchen decor.

Buy It:  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner this would make an awesome gift for the coffee drinker in your life.  Amazon has the Tassimo Hot Beverage System starting at $129.99.

Win It:  One lucky Yellow Tennessee reader will win their very own Tassimo T20 Brewbot just like the one I received.
