Review of Tassimo T20 Brewer10:23 PM
I'm a coffee lover. I drink it way too much, but have found that if I can drink higher quality coffee, I'm content with drinking less. Recently, I received a Tassimo T20 Brewer in black to try out in my own kitchen. The results were delicious!
This brewer is idiot-proof. Just fill the back tank with water, place your cup under the spout, and insert the brewing cartridge of your choice. With the press of a button, you'll have steaming hot coffee in no time. No need to measure coffee! If you want a bit more water in your brew, just press the "add water" button, and you can weaken it a little. Since the coffee brewer reads the bar code on each cartridge, there's no guessing how much water you'll need. Espresso varieties use less, and those big 16 oz blends will dispense more. Just read the instructions on the variety you buy to find out what size cup you'll need. The brewer does the rest!
I also love that this brewer is compatible with Starbuck's coffee cartridges. By buying the coffee and signature latte cartridges, you can get an authentic Starbuck's coffee house experience in minutes. They also have tea and cocoa cartidges, as well as a wide range of other coffee brands to choose from. (There are also some fun color inserts you can buy to customize the look of your brewer to match any room!)
Is there anything I don't love about this machine? Without a doubt, the coffee is more expensive per cup than brewing it in a traditional drip brewer. However, if you are looking for the most authentic flavor, I think it's worth it. (I tend to treat to myself with one cup from the Tassimo in the afternoon as a way to reward myself.) Since I don't have a Starbucks within 40 minutes of where I live, this is a great way to experience a good latte without the drive.
Even those on a budget can keep the Tassimo stocked. Amazon, in particular, often has the Tassimo cartridges on sale through their website. You can learn more about the T20 and all it's super-cool functions at the Tassimo site!
