Conclusion

The Tassimo coffee machine range is extremely popular with its loyal users, with the overwhelming majority of reviews being glowingly positive. The T DISC technology makes brewing the perfect drink a breeze, and with over 40 varieties of hot drinks available, under the top brand names including Kenco, Twinings, Cadbury, and Costa, you will never get bored.The most common gripe is that in using the T DISCS, the only milk option is a powdered UHT disc, which many reviewers say has an unpleasant taste. Many people find they have to create their own froth in a different process, which takes away from the quick and easy nature of the Tassimo system.
