Almost one year ago I was introduced to Tassimo. I received a Tassimo Suprema Hot Beverage Machine and posted a Tassmio review. Before Tassimo, I rarely drank coffee. I owned a coffee pot but it was rarely used because I didn't want to make a full pot for only one cup. That and I didn't want to go through several steps just to have some coffee.
Since owning a home brewing system from Tassimo, I've been turned on to different beverages that I can make quickly and to my liking. A cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or cappucino can be made in just a short time.
To say I am fond of Tassimo and its brewing capabilities is an understatement. I was beyond elated when I received a new version of the home brewing system. The Bosch T20 Home Brewing System makes a variety of your favorite drinks with the touch of a button. With this system, additional faceplates can be purchased to customize the look of it. I received a strawberry red brewer kit that includes a splash cover and cup stand. The majority of my kitchen is decorated in an apple theme so the look of the red and white brewer matches perfectly with it. Having the additional brewer kit is not a necessity, but it adds flair.
The Tassimo home brewing systems are so easy to use that even my children (all six of them) had it figured out in no time. For whatever quirky reason, my son Adam swears that hot chocolate is waaaay better if it's made in a Tassimo. I think the experience of making it with a Tassimo is part of his reasoning. My family has made teas, coffees, cappuccinos, hot chocolates, and lattes with the Tassimo. It's especially pleasing to have a flavorful hot beverage in such a short time during the cold winter months.

In a shortened version, what you have to do to make your beverage is turn the machine on and add a T-Disc. Push the button and watch your beverage be made. Seriously, it's so simple to do. Instructions are included, but it has taken us just a couple of tries to get the hang of it. We all have our favorite T-Disc beverages. I'm particularly fond of all the hot chocolate varieties and I like the Maxwell House Blend Coffee.
I don't necessarily see a quality difference between the first Tassimo home brewing system I reviewed and this one. My teenage daughter says that this one has a more modernistic, futuristic look, and is a little smaller in size. Being able to customize this one with a faceplate that matches your decor is an advantage over the other. The one and only improvement that I'd like to see with this particular machine is that it would be nice if the cord could be coiled and stored somewhere in the back so it does not dangle when it's not being used.
