Tassimo is Kraft Foods' proprietary home brewing system that lets consumers make delicious coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cappuccino, espresso and lattes - one cup at a time. The Tassimo brewer, developed and designed by Kraft Foods and manufactured by Bosch, contains a microprocessor that reads the bar code printed on each T Disc label to automatically calculate the correct water amount, temperature and brewing time for every beverage. This means the getting a great cup of coffee or other great hot beverage is really easy! Just slip in a T Disc, press the button, and it's ready in 60 seconds!
I received a free Tassimo brewer and coffee to try! I was amazed with the ease of brewing and the taste of it! It's hard to believe that I can get a great cup of hot chocolate in just 60 seconds! I also enjoyed the great selection of T Discs! The expanding selection of beverage brand options include: Twinings, Maxwell House, Seattle's Best Coffee, Gevalia Kaffe and Milka. Additionally, Tassimo and Starbucks just launched two new single-serve coffeehouse-style beverages: Starbucks Latte Primo and Starbucks Cappuccino Primo for Tassimo. I really liked that to make a drink it takes two T Discs. For the Starbucks Cappuccino Primo you first use a Cappuccino Primo Milk Creamer T Disc and then an Espresso Roast T Disc. This makes for a great tasting drink. To make Milka Hot Chocolate you use a Creamer from Milk and a Milka T Disc.
Another wonderful thing about the Tassimo brewing system is the water filtration system. It allows the water to be filtered before being used for the beverage. I think this gives the beverage a good taste. I also like that the system comes with a removable cup stand that is height adjustable! This made for an easy clean-up afterwards.
