Tassimo T55 Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
I love coffee. To be honest, I really hadn’t been able to enjoy it much lately. With my husband up and out of the house before 6 am, and then me rushing to get out of the house with the boys most mornings, it doesn’t make sense so brew a pot of coffee. I do like a nice cup of coffee in the morning though and I’m glad I can now enjoy a cup every day – even if I’m in a hurry – thanks to the new Tassimo T55 brewer.
I received a Tassimo T55 brewer and a large assortment of T Discs for this review. When it arrived and we took it out of the box I was happy to see how sleek and compact the machine is – I knew it wouldn’t take up too much space on my small kitchen counter. Set up was a breeze, all we had to do was plug it in and perform a simple cleansing of the reservoir before brewing. Once that was complete my husband and I decided to dive into the Corner Coffeehouse Peppermint Hot Chocolate first. We both loved the scent and taste of the peppermint and really enjoyed this as a nice treat on a cold night. Brewing our cups was simple – we each just put the T Disc in the machine and pressed start. In just a matter of a few minutes we both had steaming hot cups of hot chocolate. I was excited to be able to start having my daily morning coffee again, and I’m a big fan of the Latte T Discs. I love the frothy, creamy latte this machine delivers. In addition to the hot chocolate and latte flavors, Tassimo also offers coffees, teas, cappuccinos, espressos, cremas, and mochas. New and special this year is the Gevalia Limited Edition Peppermint Mocha – perfect for the holiday season!
The T55 brewer is built with Intellibrew barcode technology, which reads and adjusts each preparation to the perfect amount of water, brewing time and temperature for an impeccable beverage every time. It also features an enhanced slide-control cup stand for added stability and a built-in water filtration system. What’s really neat is that you can now customize your preference for a subtle or strong cup of coffee using the the mild/strong pre-setting of the brewer. If you have a coffee lover in your life, this machine would make a wonderful holiday gift. It gives coffeehouse quality taste in the convenience of your own home, and lets every member of the household create the drink they are in the mood for within minutes. The T55 brewer sells for $169.99 on the Tassimo site. Use their store locator to find a retailer near you that sells Tassimo – including Target and Bed Bath and Beyond.
