TASSIMO T55

My husband, the kids and I love hot chocolate and I love a good cup of coffee that tastes like hot chocolate. 🙂  I was excited to be given the opportunity to try out a single cup coffee brewer by TASSIMO when they invited me to ‘Unlock a Perfect Cup this Holiday Season’ by sending me one of their new T55 brewers and a selection of T-disc’s to try out with it.  I tried so many kinds of coffee in a span of a few hours that I was ready to conquer the world.  (Don’t worry, I took sips of the different flavors and shared with my husband. I didn’t drink like 9 cups of coffee.) Then the kids got home from school and I was conquered.

The Tassimo T55: Easy High-End Brewing at a Mid-Range Price

While there are many high-end, feature-rich coffee makers available on the market, most tend to be extremely pricey for the average consumer. What’s more, many tend to be highly specialized and really excel at only one or two tasks. In truth, the vast majority of hot beverage fans are looking for a machine that’s a bit more flexible and middle-of-the-road. If you find yourself in that camp, the Bosch Tassimo T55 is more than worthy of your consideration.

Main Features & Functionality
For such a versatile appliance, the Tassimo T55 is surprisingly compact at just 8.7 inches deep, 11.26 inches wide and 11.14 inches high. Like its competitors from the likes of Keurig, the T55 boasts instant heat-up and zero power consumption on standby. It also features a removable 68-oz. reservoir fitted with a Mavea Maxtra filter for the purest water possible. In addition, it has a height-adjustable drip tray. Operating at 1300 watts, it can heat beverages to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Tassimo T55 In Action

The real magic of the Tassimo T55 lies in its propriety T-Disc pods. To make the perfect chai latte, hot chocolate or cappuccino, just insert the appropriate T-Disc and press a button. The T55 will read the barcode on the T-Disc and adjust water quantity and temperature to ensure a perfect brew. A simple +/- button allows users to make their beverages stronger or weaker as they may prefer.  I prefer a weaker coffee so I’m not found cleaning the carpet and painting the walls while my husband likes a stronger taste.

Overall Quality and Value

In terms of build quality, the T55 is a particularly rugged machine.  Its attractive exterior is rather minimalist but sports chrome elements that make it look more expensive than it actually is.  As a whole, this machine just feels incredibly solid and put up with quite a bit of use in a short period of time even at the hands of my 14 year old.  I heard no complaints from the T55 so all is good!  In the bargain department, the T55 is fairly competitive with other single serving coffee makers currently available. While the T-Discs are a bit expensive, they save quite a bit of time when you’re in a rush.

The Verdict

If you’re looking for a brewing powerhouse that can quickly churn out a variety of hot drinks that every member of the family can enjoy, the Tassimo T55 is a safe bet. Besides a high degree of versatility, the T55 boasts convenience and value as additional bona fides. Few coffee makers out there can match its combination of value and beverage quality. Pound for pound, it’s one of the best single serving machines you can buy.
