Pros: Coffees full bodied, meets expectations. Elegant, quiet, compact, & quick. Froths and Brews. Easy cleanup.
Cons: Availability of T-discs in local stores and more brands. Improving recently.
Tassimo-Bosch redesigned and improved the minor annoyances of the older T-Braun in a big way. This machine is elegant, sleek, and compact; quiet and quick; easy to set up, use, and clean. Looks great in your kitchen. The resultant brews meet your expections for certain particular flavorable brands. Brews are full bodied, not weak, metallic tasting, or watery tasting versions of the coffees you love. You can impress your company with their choice of Lattes, Cappucinos, Cremas, and gourmet coffees. By the by, Starbuck Primos -- Lattes and Cappucinos -- have just been added to the inventory, as well as Gevalia's Carmel Latte. The LCD monitor walks you through each stage of the brew. You can adjust for the strength of coffee you prefer by holding down the brew dial or stopping the machine. Otherwise, the T-discs are manufactured to brew coffee with that flavor in mind. No more guesswork. How many single serve coffee makers have that ability? All assortment of cup sizes, including some travel mugs can now be used with the Tassimo Bosch. If you are like me and wake up wanting a hot chocolate in the middle of the night, the blue light over the cup stand is a nice touch.
Clean up is a breeze. In what time it would take to brew a cup of coffee, you can clean your machine after making cappucinos or lattes with the cleaning disc that can be stored in the back of your machine and a quick wipe. What are the advantages in this? Buying a frother adds to the cost of the utility of your coffee maker, and we do have to clean the frother don't we ; ) My T-65 does it all. So don't let those who say there is a massive amount of cleaning involved if you own a Tassimo fool you. If you are a true coffee connieseur the Tassimo-Bosch will not disappoint.
