I've owned this machine for a little over 2 years and it produces excellent quality drinks and coffee in particular. It does seem to suffer from 'random' glitches where it wont read a disc but turning it on and off usually cures this ailment. Overall, I am not sure if i would buy another one due to the noise and bulky nature of the machine but I am enjoying it while I have it. (read more)

Feb. 10-12 called to let Tassimo that the paRt that reads the bar code was fogging over. Arranged to have a new one shipped and when it came Mar.11-12, it was the wrong colour. Sent it back two days later. After "Many" calls and being left on hold for 10-20 min. each time the new machine arrived May. 23.

I have had one of these for several years and overall I am pleased, however the discs are a little bit on the expensive side. My machine sometimes will not say it is ready and I have to turn it off at the wall and on again, never really got to the bottom of it. A bit bulky on the kitchen worktop but the quality of the drinks it produces is second to none, better that Starbucks or anything like that. You can import a range of discs for it from germany via ebay or amazon, all sorts of obscure... (read more)

Just out of warranty, the water level sensor of this Braun/Tassimo machine failed to turn off the boiler when the reservoir ran low, resulting in internal overheated. Coffee now has a burned rubber smell (and probably taste too!) so is undrinkable. Braun/Kraft not interested - put me in touch with a repairer at my expense. I'll be saving my money and buying a proper machine from another manufacturer - if such a thing exists.

I have a Braun Tassimo machine and it is the best machine that I have ever owned. I love my coffee and this one is the best. I see in stores they have another company that makes the Tassimo, but I don't like it as much as the original Braun Tassimo, it's the better of them all. So easy to use and very durable. I hope Braun doesn't stop making it, because if I need another one I want one exactly like it. I already bought my son one and he adores it. I didn't click the Service and... (read more)

Owned the Tassimo machine for many years now and I wouldn't be without it.Great coffee every time (particularly Cafe Crema) and although the machine is a bit leaky now it has been very reliable.Wouldn't hesitate to go out and buy a new model if and when this one calls it a day.
Only problem now is I can't find anywhere that offers a coffee as good so it's taken away the pleasure of the coffee shop experience. (read more)

I love fresh coffee, enjoy it as an occasional treat and was thrilled when I received a Tassimo as a gift. Excitement quickly turned to disappointment. The creamer was appalling so I tried again with hot milk and a fresh coffee pod. The result was insipid so I added a second pod. In the end I added some instant coffee which completely defeated the object of the exercise.
In short it's an expensive way to end up with an inferior cup of coffee.
If you like decent, full flavoured coffee then... (read more)

I have just bought the Tassimo 40xx from my local Sainsburys for £99 along with 4 boxes of T Discs (£10). Overall I am very pleased although I would not recommend the Cappuccino drinks as the milk tastes very artificial. You are better off buying either the Cafe Creme or the Espresso and adding your own hot milk. The machine is now made by Bosch and looks fantastic. It is so neat it could be used in the bedroom, I am sure it beats the old Tesmade! (read more)

Its a small, smart and neat instant filter coffee machine that can also make teas and hot chocolate in less than 60 seconds!
The machine is smaller than the pictures do it justice it is actually slightly larger than our 4 slice toaster and doesn't look out of place at all.

I really like my Braun Tassimo machine yes it's flawed (Tea, cost of pods, size of Hot Chocolate) but if you like a proper tasting cup of coffee without having to scat about in your freezer for the ground coffee you put there last Christmas (come on admit it, we've all done it!) then you'll like it. The coffee is a bit of an acquired taste if you're only used to drinking instant as the taste is much stronger, but you soon get used to it and I won't drink anything else now.

I was given this as a present and i feel guilty that I don't like it and don't want to use it.
I would not recommend buying one. Looking around it looks like the Senseo machines offer a refillable holder for your own coffee. This would lower costs and waste.
The Braun website carefully avoids the question of recycling the capsules - it only talks of the cardboard box and the wrapper. (read more)

Most kitchen 'toys' are used a few times and then transferred to the loft. My Tassimo is used by the whole family every day and has been since I purchased it nearly two years ago. Not only does it brew excellent tea and coffee and make delicious hot chocolate it does so blissfully easily. It's easy to keep clean and when I lost the cleaning disc I just telephoned Tassimo and they put another in the post free of charge.
If ever it breaks down I shall have to go straight out and buy... (read more)

My husband and I got given a Tassimo as a present and, at first, were very excited. However, the novelty soon wore off and we now only use it occasionally for tea and, when we are feeling flush, cappuccino. With cappuccinos you only get 9 small cups per box (and boxes are about £3.30) as, even though there are 18 pods, you use 2 per cup (one espresso and one creamy milk), so not great value when you drink 2 - 3 cups a day!
Despite the tasty cappuccinos, the normal coffee/coffee crema never... (read more)

The Braun Tassimo Freshly Brewed Hot Drinks Machine is easy on the eye when left on the kitchen counter. It makes good coffee, whichever coffee you choose, and the price is also right.
Unfortunately, whichever coffee you make, the machine spits out water from the water spillage area. I called customer service and they gave me a dim-witted explanation.
This machine should not spit out water. After you finish making your coffee, you will have quite a bit of water spillage. You have to shut... (read more)

I bought a Braun Tassimo in the New Year, thinking I would treat myself. I have to say that it hasn't disappointed.

I'm a massive fan of the hot chocolate - it's rich and creamy and no hassle at all.

It's a compact cool design, and the ease at which you can make a cup of pretty much any hot drink, is amazing, for me it's replaced my Kettle and Coffee maker all in one.

I like a choice of drinks so I've traded up my old expresso maker and bought a Braun Tassimo machine.
It's a bit like a smaller, funkier vending machine that you see in cool offices. It uses a T-disc system, which basically are plastic pods containing hot chocolate (Suchard...mmmm!), tea and various coffees. The discs have barcodes which tell the machine how to brew the drinks. These slot into the machine and hot water pumps through in a similar way to an Expresso machine.
