Product Reviews


Just before Christmas a very special package arrived and I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! It was a TASSIMO T45 Suprema which is something I had been wanting to have for SO LONG!

Right away I wanted to set up and I am proud to say I figured out how to do it on my own. I am normally awful figuring out how things work and get John to do that stuff, but there was no way I was waiting for him to come home from work. I wanted a coffee now!

It took me about 45 minutes to set up- remember I am VERY SLOW at this sort of stuff, but I felt so good when I was done.

Let me first explain what the TASSIMO is before I get too involved in talking about how great it is. TASSIMO is an Automatic Hot Beverage System that gives you the perfect cup of your desired beverage with the click of a button. You can enjoy a coffee, tea, latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate, etc of brand name coffees like Starbucks, Nabob, Maxwell House and Gevalia Kaffe (just to name a few). It uses the T Disc Technology which is basically just putting in the T Disc for the drink you want into the machine and pressing the button to start the process. It takes about a minute to make and comes out hot, fresh and delicious every single time.

The T Discs are pretty neat. The TASSIMO reads the barcode so it knows what drink you are making and will adjust temperature, how much water is required and brew time. It even froths your milk for your lattes! You can also make different drinks in a row and not worry about the taste transferring from one to another.

I’ve tried just about every single kind of T Disc I could find in my area. I wish we had more selection here because there’s some of them that I’d be interested in seeing what they are like.

My favourites? Starbucks Breakfast Blend, Nabob Latte and Nabob Cappuccino. I drink coffee ALL DAY LONG and had a serious Tim Horton’s addiction prior to my TASSIMO’s arrival. Now I barely get to Timmie’s anymore and have replaced their coffee with TASSIMO. I know I am saving money because I went to Tim Horton’s at least once or twice a day.

You can purchase TASSIMO at many locations in Canada including The Bay, Zellers, Sears, Future Shop, Sears, Home Hardware and more.

My mom has one too and we were both talking about how great they are. If you are a coffee drinker (or tea drinker,etc), I totally recommend it- it’s awesome!
