Tassimo was first introduced in 2004 in France and is now available to the rest of the world including the UK. All Tassimo machines have been developed in partnership with Bosch, so you can rest assured that reliability and build are second to none. The hot beverage system single-serve coffee system that prepares one-cup servings of espresso, regular coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and various other coffee drinks, notably those including milk such as latte or cappuccino.
Cheap Tassimo pods or T Discs
The system utilizes pods called T-Discs which are expertly designed to fit any Tassimo machine, so all you need to do is to pop one in and press the button. A bar code on top of each T-Disc instructs the machine to use the proper brewing settings. It will then change the water temperature, the amount of water, and the brew time and strength. This allows the Tassimo pod maker to brew a variety of hot drinks: filtered style coffee, cappuccino, short espresso, tea, and hot chocolate. The brewing process takes between 30–60 seconds. Discs containing milk use UHT milk, not powdered milk.
These T-Discs are currently offered under brands owned by either Mondelēz or Kraft Foods such as Gevalia, Maxwell House, Mastro Lorenzo, Nabob, Carte Noire, Jacobs, Suchard and Twinings. Not all brands are available in all markets though. For example, Kenco T-Discs are available in the British Isles only, while Nabob T-Discs are only available in Canada. In some markets, Tassimo has entered into partnerships with third parties to market T-Discs from non-Kraft and non-Mondelēz brands. In the United Kingdom, T-Discs with the Costa Coffee brand have been sold since September 2012.
Here in the UK the larger supermarkets carry predominantly Kenco and Costa Coffee ranges in T-Disc form for the Tassimo coffee machines. However there is a far greater range of coffee (as well as other drinks!) on the Tassimo web site.
