I purchased this product from Target for $129 today for two reasons: 1 - I have recently developed a dependence on Starbucks Caffee Mocha - it does not have much of a coffee taste, which I like, and the shot of espresso in it helps me concentrate. I work at home and its easy to get distracted. The small size has been costing me over $3 so I need to just make it at home 2 - Though I'm not a coffee drinker, most of my friends are and I like the idea of being able to offer them a cup of coffee, cappucino or espresso (or hot chocolate) now and then.

I researched the single serve machines quite a bit and found that Tassimo is a good machine, though the coffee is not as good as if made from freshly ground beans in a french press. That's okay with me - I'm just making one serving a day of espresso and mixing in a bunch of skim milk and chocolate powder so it does not have to be the best coffee flavor. Very practical as it is quick and each cup costs around $0.50 based on the T-disc prices. Note: the milk discs use a liquid rather than a powder, and this supposedly makes a better cappucino than the machines that use powdered milk disks. I use the Gevalia Espresso, then add hot skimmed milk frothed with the handheld Aerolatte, then add two spoons of Ghiradelli hot chocolate mix. It tastes great, albeit not quite as rich as Starbucks product. A friend stopped by and I made him a cup of coffee using a Maxwell house coffee disc (Target had a coupon for a free box of them when I bought the machine) and he said the coffee was very good.

You can remove the drip cup and put a full size travel mug under it if you want, though you may get a few drips on the counter after pulling your mug away.

I have had my Tassimo for just over a month now (received it 10/4/05) and I am in love with it!!! I have all the different T-Discs now since I can get them online from many places. I got my last order of T-Discs from Gevalia online, including the European varieties. I can have Tea, Hot Chocolate as good as any I have ever had, Cappuccinos, Lattes, Espresso, Crema Coffee (better than the "fake crema" on the senseo), Bold coffee, mild coffee. Since my wife drinks tea and I drink coffee and coffee drinks, and our nieces love hot chocolate when they visit, the Tassimo is perfect.

Contrary to what the "uninformed" may say, this machine is very, very clean. There is a cleaning disc that needs to be run twice when you first get the machine, and then monthly. You do not have to run the cleaning disc after every Cappuccino and Latte. Also, almost all of the removeable parts are machine washable!!!

The beverage selection is still limited (no flavored coffees), but I have purchased some flavored syrups and can now make flavored Cappuccinos and lattes that rival any coffee shop for a fraction of the cost!!! This is REAL, high quality coffee too, unlike the flavia which uses some powdered yuk mixed with water. Right now they have Gevalia Coffee (regular, decaf, espresso,crema,)and Tea, Twinings Tea, Suchard Hot Chocolate, Kenco coffee, Carte Noir Coffee (Regular, Espresso, Crema). The Cappuccino and Latte are packed with Gevalia espresso, but from what I have read, it sounds like they will be releasing an entire line of Maxwell House Cafe collection varieties sometime in November. I am not sure about Maxwell house, but I really like the Gevalia products!!!

The T-Discs have premium ground coffee, Tea, liquid Suchard chocolate in them.

I didn't buy the Tassimo 1200 through Amazon, but I bought it yesterday and so far I really like it. A few things to know: it does not come with any t-discs so buy some when you purchase your machine. Also, this model is less expensive because it does not have a water purifying system in it, and the 1400 does. I have been filling it with water from my refrigerator purifying system, but that it not necessary. An advantage to this is that the 1200 takes up a little bit less room. I love the cappucino..tastes like the real thing to me. It took a while to get the hang of using it, but now I can't wait until someone wants a Tassimo drink so I can make it. Don't know what the future holds with this, as it is my brand new toy.

Let me preface my comments by saying that the machine works beautifully--truly a piece of engineering. No muss, no fuss and very reliable temperature in the beverages. It has solved the errant coffee ground problem in our kitchen (which my wife loves!)

HOWEVER, the choices for coffee are VERY limited. If you like French Roast or other varieties, this machine is not for you. If you're down with the same Gevalia cup every morning, then by all means this is your machine. To add some robustness to my morning brew, I have started adding a shot of espresso (from the Tassimo, of course) to my cup--this actually works pretty well, but uses 2 T-Discs rather than one.

The hot chocolate T-Discs are reliable, but not great. If you are used to homeade hot chocolate (or Mexican varieties with spice), this machine will disappoint. Again, the tradeoff is convenience and efficiency for taste and quality.

The espresso is a little syrupy where it should be earthy, but the crema is a nice touch. It doesn't come anywhere near a dedicated espresso machine and would not be a good choice as a substitute. Spring the extra couple hundred bucks if you are an esspresso-head.

Bottom Line: I am keeping this thing around as an efficient way to brew a quick cup of coffee or an espresso in the afternoon, and for the occaisional dinner guest who would like a quick brew. However I am now buying a regular drip brew machine for my daily routine. Until the quality and variety of coffee expands with the Tassimo, I don't think you can beat fresh ground beans and a quality drip machine.
