I think I found it guys! The perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life. The Tassimo T20 Brewbot from Bosch. It arrived last night and I’ve made a few cups and my daughter has made cappuccino… it was amazingly good.
This is a single cup hot drink maker that can brew a cup in about 1 minute. You can brew coffee, tea, cappuccino, latte, crema, espresso and hot cocoa all in the same machine. The actual brewing process is fairly quiet because the Tassimo has an exclusive flow-through water heater. The makes for a faster and quieter brew.
What I find amazingly cool is you can switch from one type of hot drink to another and not have flavor transfer. Why and how, you ask? Each T-DISC (the coffee packet) has a unique bar code on it. The Brewbot reads the code and knows how much water and what temperature to use to use to make the perfect cup of coffee. The actual brewing process takes place inside the t-disc so there is no flavor transfer when you put a new T-DISC in. We saw evidence of that last night when brewing a cappuccino. The first packet (creamer) pushed through far more water than the actual coffee, but together made a nice big cup of joe. I immediately popped in a Gevalia T-DISC and I didn’t taste a single hint of cappuccino.
The Brewbot is small and space saving. I love how it looks on the counter… it has a slightly more modern look to it. It’s not overpowering and with the lime green color insert (optional… it comes with a white one) it adds a punch of personality.
The water reservoir holds a decent 1.5 liters, which will make several cups of coffee before you have to refill. Refilling is not really a hassle though. The lid flips open with a nice wide mouth to fill. The fill line is clearly marked and the container slides back in easily.
Are you thinking, “Okay, that’s all fine and dandy… but with high end coffee like Starbucks it’s going to cost me a fortune.”, right? Not really!
The Tassimo is the only Home Brewing System that gives everyone the drink they want from coffees and teas to rich cappuccinos and lattes. You can find brands such as Milka, Gevalia, Maxwell House, Suchard, Mastro Lorenzo, Twining’s, Kenco, Jacob’s, TAZO, Nobob, Carte Noire and Seattle’s Best Coffee. Of course, the line-up wouldn’t be complete without Starbucks… with Cappuccino Primo and Latte Primo. Something for just about everyone on the coffee spectrum.
I decided to go ahead and video my second attempt at brewing a cup of coffee so you could see how simple it was. Don’t laugh at me… I was tired…
See what I mean? Easy peasy… even when you’re groggy!
Now I know you want one for Christmas…. right?
