So Much More than a Coffee Machine

Tassimo the machine that lets you play at being a Barista like those from Costa (who also do coffee for Tassimo), it is the machine that gives you the experience of that coffee shop without sometimes having to step into one. From filter coffee to mocha choca and then there's tea . Yes you heard me right Tassimo makes tea as well with that quintessential English tea that is Twinnings.

I received only what I like to call a care package which consisted of the Tassimo T20 machine , Twinnings Breakfast tea and Kenco Columbian coffee. That's that the sort of looking after I love ! I owned a Tassimo many years ago but sadly my head got turned by a false idol that was another brand of coffee  machine worst mistake of my life and I gave my old Tassimo away. Safe to say the one that I had decided to cheat on the Tassimo with broke within months.

My life then became a mindless tippy tappy of a spoon as heartless granules fell into a empty mug while I switched on the kettle like some caffeine crazed zombie. But this Tassimo T20 has given my mornings a new heart and has awaken my soul and now there's happily no going back.

Operating the Tassimo T-20 is child's play (obviously a child is not going to operate the machine ) you choose your T-pod for your choice of drink , the T-pod has a barcode on it which tells the Tassimo how much water through the machine , also on the back of the T-pod packet there is an indication of what size drinking cup you'll need.

It is a sleek machine that would not look out of place in the V & A museum there is nothing complicated about it , yet it gives you a very professional looking brewage. The machine is quick , quiet and efficient , I love that the water tank on the machine is slimline. There is no leakage what so ever with the Tassimo T-20 and when you take the T-pods out there is no mess either as granules etc are contained within the T-pod.


And if the amount of beverage in your cup is not quite to your liking you can intercede at the end of the machines cycle by pressing the button to let more hot water through.

And even Jack Black got in on the act sadly not the comedian actor but my black moggy who is obsessed with cardboard boxes.

So in conclusion ...... I love my Tassimo T-20 it was love at first site.

I was sent the Tassimo for review my love of tea and coffee has not biased me in my review and all options as such are honest and unbiased.

Currently Tassimo have the T-4 on offer for only £30 but hurry! 


  1. I see our cat still likes all the boxes that our goodies come in! I don't drink coffee but have been known to review coffee related things for hubby:-)

  2. Mmmmm, coffee! Make mine a mocha, with the heart on top! You could have a whole new career there, you know.
