Say goodbye to the days you spent waiting in line for a delicious hot beverage at your local cafe; with the Tassimo Hot Beverage Maker, you can now enjoy premium coffee, tea and hot chocolate from the comforts of your own kitchen!
While I have tested many of the single cup coffee brewers over the years, I have never been so satisfied. The quality and selection offered by Braun's Tassimo is unchallenged. Within ten minutes of unpacking the machine I was enjoying my first cup. The entire set up process took less time that it would take to prepare a normal coffee maker to start brewing. After turning on the machine and filling the water reservoir, it was only a two step process to make a hot cup of coffee (unless you include the step of choosing what kind of coffee you want.)
This popular machine brews 1 cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa, espresso, cappuccino and even a latte with a special T-DISC system which adjusts to the proper brewing time, temperature and amount of water for every drink. Its 1-touch simplicity brews a cup under just one minute with no hassle and the unique inverse filtration system pumps water upwards instead of downwards for efficient extraction. The Tassimo Hot Beverage System comes with auto shutoff and a water reservoir with replaceable filter ensures you will taste a fresh batch of coffee or tea every time! To use, simply insert your desired T-DISC, choose the correct cup for the drink you want to brew, and press the button. Dishwasher-safe parts make cleanup a cinch!
The Tassimo system has two key components: the Tassimo brewing machine and proprietary Tassimo discs (T DISCS). Through Tassimo's smart technology, developed and designed by Kraft Foods, the machine's microprocessor reads the bar code printed on the T DISC label after it is inserted into the machine and automatically calculates the correct water quantity and temperature as well as brewing time to prepare the perfect beverage. All of the brewing happens inside the T DISC, which contains a precisely measured amount of coffee, tea, chocolate or real milk and is sealed to protect the flavor inside. Most beverages are ready in about a minute.
Providing quality and taste for discerning palates, as well as about-a-minute efficiency for time-conscious consumers, Tassimo's one-cup preparation ensures no messy leftovers or delays associated with outdated brewing systems or crowded coffee shops.
"With the expanded distribution of our T DISCS and the new Tassimo brewer, even more consumers will be able to enjoy coffeehouse-quality beverages at home, all at the touch of a button," said Lorraine Hansen, Vice President, Tassimo. "The introduction of our new flavors satisfies consumer demands, by providing additional quality brands and delicious flavors."
The suggested retail price for the T DISCS ranges from approximately $3.99 - $9.99, depending upon the beverage type, package size and brand. Both machines and the T DISCS are also available for purchase online at Tassimo.com and popular e-retail sites.
Tassimo is the only machine that allows consumers to prepare an assortment of hot beverages, including coffee, tea, espresso, crema, hot chocolate, latte and cappuccino. Unlike other single-serve brewers, Tassimo uses real milk to create the dense foam or steamed milk for cappuccinos and lattes eliminating the need for a complicated steam wand or frothing attachment.
