Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker Review  -  An Inside Look

When I received the Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker over Christmas, I was immediately skeptical. I had heard about Tassimo coffee makers before, but had never really been interested in buying them because I assumed they would generate inferior specialty coffee beverages. As an individual who worked as a barista for a number of years, I knew that the espresso making process is a fine art, cultivated after several years of experience.

But since I had received this coffee maker for free, I figured I should at least give it a try. Perhaps I would even use it every once in a while.

After about a month's worth of use, I'm surprised to report that I actually like the machine; it makes better coffee than I thought it would!

What follows is a brief Bosch Tassimo coffee maker review, for those of you still on the fence about getting this machine.

What I Like About the Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker

The first thing I should emphasize about this machine is that it is super convenient. Making any beverage with this machine is as easy as putting a T DISC into the T DISC holder and pressing a button.

That's all there is to it - the machine does the rest!

No need to warm up the machine. No need to learn the art of steaming milk. And no messy cleanup!

Now for someone who loves having a specialty coffee beverage in the morning (e.g. a latte), this is perfect, as it requires less than a minute to make a well-crafted cup of coffee. Not only is it a stress-free process, but it saves you from shelling out $4 - 5 on an expensive Starbucks drink.

You can choose from any number of T DISCS. Obviously the most popular ones are lattes, cappuccinos, and regular coffee, but there are some flavored ones to select as well. You can even make some interesting combinations yourself. For instance, combine an espresso T DISC with a hot chocolate T DISC to make yourself a mocha. Top with some whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles for an added treat.

Making specialty coffee with the Bosch Tassimo coffee maker can therefore be an exciting experience!

How Do Tassimo Drinks Compare With Your Local Coffee Shop

Although the Tassimo coffee maker is fast and convenient, don't be expecting world class specialty coffee beverages. It does a good job making cappuccinos, but it is still not as good as a "hand-made" one from a great local coffee shop.

For instance, although the Bosch Tassimo coffee maker generates enough foam for its cappuccino the quality of the foam is not the best. I'd probably give it about a 7/10 in terms of quality, since there are still a number of large bubbles in it. Obviously the ideal foam would have a creamy consistency to it, as can only be made from a real espresso machine.

I would draw a similar conclusion for the espresso. The espresso tastes pretty good - and in fact has a layer of crema on it - but it is still not perfect.

Now for some people, this isn't a huge problem, because they're just looking for a good specialty beverage to have in the morning that doesn't cost them too much money.

Conclusion: Is The Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker Worth Buying?

In the end, I would highly recommend the Bosch Tassimo coffee maker for individuals looking to enjoy good quality specialty beverages in the comfort of their own home. The biggest selling features for this machine are its ease of use and convenience. The learning curve is very low and it only takes 1-2 minutes to make a single drink.

With a price tag of about $100 dollars, the Tassimo coffee maker is competitively priced for most consumers looking to expand their home coffee making arsenal. There are also a number of unique Tassimo coffee maker colors to choose from.
