Customer Reviews

My local grocery stores in Atlanta do not carry Tassimo but the shelves are stocked with Keuring and Dolce products.

NOTABLES The Device is much more than a coffee maker as it brews Coffee, Gourmet Beverages, Iced Coffee, Tea, Iced Tea, Hot Chocolate, Apple Cider and the Like.
Perry
I think it's luck of the draw whether you get one that works or not - and with that kind of inconsistent quality I won't be getting another Tassimo unit.

Let me first start by saying that I hesitate to call this device by its full name as this is much more than a traditional coffee maker! Honestly though, to most the Tassimo Single Serve Units are no different that the numerous Keurig models on the market; I mean, after all, it is pretty much just the same type of device right?? Well, there's several differences in the product that clearly defines the system.

STYLE

For styling the Tassimo T45 isn't very different than most of the other Single Cup Brewing Stations on the Market and this likely won't win any awards for looks but it isn't so hideous that you don't want it in your kitchen either.

OPERATION

Brewing is as simple as Filling the Water tank, lifting the lever and installing a coffee pack, placing a cup on the stand and pushing brew and if desired tweaking the brew by pushing the brewing button within 20 seconds of brewing completion. Of course multiple packs might be used if you're wanting to make more complex drinks.

SEPARATION

So the Tassimo has okay styling, simple operation and the pros certainly outweigh the cons but what really separates it from Keurig and prevents it from being an Also Ran in the Single Cup Brewing Market?

Well, there are a few things that separate it:

First, are the bar coded coffee packets that tell the machine how to brew the product and this allows the manufacturer to give you the perfect brew right in your own home!
Second, when brewing Cappuccinos or Lattes the unit will use a multiple Cartridge approach like the Keurig but the Tassimo uses real Milk, not some powdered confection, and the bar code allows for the perfect frothing based on the beverage being served.

OUT OF BOX EXPERIENCE
The brewer was well packaged and a pleasure to open up. The manufacturer clearly took the unboxing experience into consideration, and put some thought into it -- not on par with Apple for example, but certainly more thought than I'm used to seeing from small appliance manufacturers.

CRAFTSMANSHIP, FIT & FINISH and MATERIALS
That fabled German engineering is clearly in evidence here. I can personally say BOSCH also makes some amazing large appliances (their dishwashers are fantastic), but they aren't widely known here in the states. Materials selection is great. Nice sturdy plastics, and attractive finishes that also feel pleasant to the touch. The water tank is probably the least 'premium' feeling part of the brewer, but there aren't any moving parts and barring a drop out a second story window, I don't think it will be a source of trouble.

The brewer has sufficient heft that I can tell the internals are manufactured with some substance, and it doesn't have that "disposable" feel that so many small electrics have these days. That being said, it's not so heavy that its difficult to lift or move. Closing the lid of the brewing mechanism after inserting a t-disc provides a satisfying amount of resistance and finishes with great tactile feedback once the t-disc is locked properly in place and the brewing chamber is sealed.

USING THE DEVICE
The small but adequate LCD screen makes using the product all but foolproof. It tells you when to put in the disc, when to wait, and when to remove the disc. You also get an opportunity to hold the start button to dispense more beverage (if for example you wanted your beverage more dilute, or wanted to top off your mug).

UPDATE! 4/26/14... info on how to repair if necessary!
( I will include these tips and information at the end of this review so you can scroll down and skip review if you want.)

First let me say; I did not want this machine. My wife bought it because she finds culinary arts, (like boiling water,) difficult... especially in the A.M. I'm too cheap to pay this much for a coffee machine and the expensive individual pods. Further, I am ethically opposed to all the packaging waste the pods create.

So I was no fan of this system... until I had it for the last two years.

Now, we find it indispensable. It sees use two or three times every morning, one or two times in the afternoon and more on the weekend if we have guests. Other than routine cleaning, we have had no problems with it.

A note about the "piercing problem" other reviewers mention...

As befitting of my manly wont, I started using this thing without reading instructions. It is a tribute to Bosch engineers that I was able to get away with that for so long. However, I too noticed an occasional glitch where the grounds would spill and spray all over... which challenged my male tool-using prowess. Then I learned that you should be gentle and not slam down the lid. It would be an understatement to say, "I'm not very coordinated in the morning." If we share the kitchen during early hours, my daughter calls me "Big Foot." (It's not MY fault she doesn't wear shoes before 9AM!)

As my wife later learned, you can't put the pod in crooked or upside down and expect happy results. Sometimes, when she is not yet fully awake, she does stuff like that: puts the pods in upside down, puts shoes in the freezer or puts her Blackberry in the toaster. It's hard to answer a pop-tart.
