HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: Tassimo T20

TASSIMO is not just another coffee maker. It's a whole new way to prepare a variety of delicious hot drinks perfectly, in the comfort of your own home. And it's so simple.  

Each ingenious TASSIMO T DISC is designed to work exclusively with the TASSIMO system. T DISCs contains a precisely measured amount of coffee, tea, chocolate or concentrated milk creamer. The brewing happens inside the T DISC. Your beverage pours directly from the T DISC into the cup, so you can prepare different drinks one after another. 

When you insert a T DISC, the brewer reads a unique bar code printed on the label. It then automatically calculates the amount of water needed, brewing time, and temperature to prepare the perfect beverage.

Throughout the day, I consume many different types of beverages.  On a daily basis, I drink about five different drinks.  I'll have coffee, tea, water, pop, etc.  I love variety and that's why I am in LOVE with my Tassimo T20!  Making a pot of coffee isn't really a good idea for me because most of it will go to waste.  With my Tassimo machine, I can make each cup as I go.  I can have a regular coffee and then some hot cocoa and then a cup of tea without having to use several different products which makes clean-up a breeze.

    Gevalia Black Iced Coffee is pure heaven!  I remember the first time someone mentioned "iced coffee" and I thought, what?!  It just didn't sound like something I would like.  I was wrong.   It's a coffee flavored icee that helps keep you awake.  I like this flavor but I would only recommend it to extreme coffee fans. 

    Expertly crafted to deliver the perfect balance between the smooth, robust sweetened coffee and milk creamer, Gevalia Sweet & Creamy iced coffee delivers a refreshing beverage perfect any time of the day.  $9.99
    Gevalia Sweet & Creamy Iced Coffee is my favorite drink ever!  It's so light and delicious.  Anytime I have a craving for something sweet, I indulge in a cup of this liquid dream!

    Disclosure: I received this product for free.  Opinions expressed are 100% mine.

    1. I want this so bad! I don't drink a lot of coffee at one time, so to brew a pot of coffee always seem like a waste. To be able to grab just one cup, or a cup of tea or hot chocolate, would save so much time and waste. Thanks for the review!

    2. This would make such a wonderful gift for my sister. She would love it! Thanks for all the info.

    7. Wow! Reading about the bar code system and the calculations that it makes; I didn't realize it was so sophisticated. Pretty spiffy!


    9. I had no idea that they made Iced Coffee now!!! I can't wait to try that!

    10. Oh it has to be the caramel latte macchiato, that sounds heavenlyyy!

    11. well written review makes me want one

    12. The range of flavors is awesome. For here it would be more about the variety then the amount (since different people could choose their own). Awesome.

    13. I would love one of these for my office!

    14. This sounds like the perfect one for me. I too, like variety every day (only occasionally coffee). It would also be great when friends come over and I could offer them their choice of beverage.

    15. I would love to have one of these. Your review was making my mouth water. The Chai Lattes sound amazing!!

      Thanks for sharing!
