This Has Converted Me to Coffee

My mornings are brighter thanks to this new product.  I have never been much of a coffee drinker until very recently.  As a new coffee connoisseur, I didn’t want to invest in too large of a machine that made coffee I would end up wasting. . . I currently drink only one cup about every other day.  My sister-in-law recommended this new single-serve appliance and so I researched.  Grading Girl’s verdict is in:  this is amazing – just like its site boasts!

Tassimo Hot Beverage System

Tassimo Hot Beverage System

What I love about my new TASSIMO Hot Beverage System is the versatality and ease.  I can make a Starbucks® blend one morning, a green tea another, a hot chocolate on the third, and a latte on the fourth – all with no fuss or mess. 

Here’s how it works!  You simply place the cute little ingenious TASSIMO Disc (T DISC) into the machine. Each T DISC contains a precisely measured amount of coffee, tea, chocolate, or concentrated milk, and is sealed to protect the invigorating flavor inside.  These discs allow you to make coffee, real espresso, milk-based lattes and cappuccinos, tea and rich hot chocolate. Each cup is freshly brewed to celebrate its true character!  Another thing that sold me on this machine versus others is the brands available with the TASSIMO – Starbucks®,Seattle’s Best, and Maxwell House to name a few.  No need to make the frantic morning run! 

All the brewing happens inside the T DISC using a unique inverse flow.   Your beverage pours directly from the T DISC into the cup so you can prepare different drinks, one after the other.  This leaves no room for mess so you can zip off to work without a worry.  It even easily converts for three different sized cups.  My thermos for work fits perfectly; the coffee brews directly into my thermos!  Additionally, the TASSIMO system also comes with its own water filter to ensure that healthful, pure water is used.  

Yes, you do have to use the TASSIMO T-Discs, but they are easy to find.  I currently get mine at my local Bed, Bath and Beyond.  They can also be ordered at the TASSIMO website directly.  They even offer a subscription program where you get a certain number of T-discs each month for a somewhat discounted price.  I may try this. . .

I’m looking forward to hosting another party to show this off.  Now my guests will be able to request their own flavors!  The machine will make 6 single-servings in a row before the water will need to be refilled.  How fun!! 

By the way, my school’s special education department is using this system for their new coffee sales program.  During the morning, students visit each department office offering coffee to the teachers.  They come around with the TASSIMO on a portable cart.  Because of the TASSIMO’s versatile, single-servings, teachers are able to choose from a wonderful menu of beverages.  Teachers line up for this!  Thank you, TASSIMO!

Grading Girl gives the TASSIMO hot beverage system an A for versatality without the mess of a traditional coffeemaker.  One could spend hundreds of dollars investing in a coffeemaker, latte machine, and espresso maker – this one system includes it all in one fair price.
