I am a huge coffee drinker so my mother in law thought this would be ideal for me. This is a nice machine but I am not completely sold on it.
This machine makes coffee, hot chocolate, tea, epresso, cappuccino and lattes. To be honest I have only tried the coffee and the epresso. My wife has tried the hot chocolate and tea.
I feel this is very easy to use. You just fill the water tank, put the cup in the machine and insert the T-disc you want and that is it.
I would say it takes the machine about 30 seconds to heat the water, which it's too bad.
The T-disc makes one cup. Now when I say one cup, I am not talking about those larger coffee mugs but your standard coffee cups. I personally wish the company would make larger T-disc for different sizes.
The water tank is big enough to make a few drinks before filling it. So I can have a cup of coffee and my wife can have some hot chocolate and there is no need to add anymore water to the tank. I like how you can see through so you know when you need to add more water.
You have to use the T-disc to use this machine. There are quite a few flavors of T-disc so you should not have a problem finding something you like. I have seen these disc at Target or you can order them on line. I have had no problem ordering them on line. The T-Disc is an individual drink pack and a one time only use.
Personally I still use my old fashion coffee maker more then the Tassimo. The Tassimo is good to use if you want to try something different but when it comes to coffee in the morning I perfer my coffee pot.
