Bosch Tassimo Coffee Brewer – Holiday Gift Idea and Giveaway

  • 406 comments

Tassimo by Bosch T20 Coffee BrewerHere’s a last minute gift idea for the coffee lover in your life: Tassimo by Bosch T20 Coffee Brewer. You can order the Tassimo Brewbot from Amazon for $100 (after mail-in rebate), but you’ll have to ship it overnight if you want it delivered before Christmas. Right now, you’re better off going to Target. They have the Tassimo by Bosch beverage brewer on sale this week for $100 (plus you also get some free Starbucks coffee). You can also try to win one on my dad blog if you don’t need it before Christmas. Thanks to Tassimo (Facebook | Twitter), I’m giving away a Tassimo T20 beverage system.

For the dads and moms who don’t know, the Tassimo T20 is a single-serve brewer. Instead of coffee beans, the Tassimo beverage system makes coffee via a T disc. Dads and moms can purchase T-discs for Starbucks, Gevalia Kaffe, Carte Noire, Jacobs, Kenco, Maxwell House Café Collection, Mastro Lorenzo, Nabob, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Suchard, TASSIMO, TAZO, Twinings, and Milka. The brewer reads the bar code on each T disc to determine the optimal amount of water and temperature required. The bar code technology makes it easy to brew a cup of coffee every time. With a little help, even my 21-month old minion can make a cup of coffee (the hard part is getting him to stop pressing the buttons repeatedly).

Tassimo T20 Coffee Brewer Pros

  • Makes over forty varieties of hot beverages (cappuccino, chai latte, tea, hot chocolate, coffee, etc)
  • It’s fast — takes less than a minute to brew a cup of coffee
  • T discs make it easy to brew a consistent cup of coffee each time
  • Manual over-ride to make the brew stronger or weaker
  • Sleek, compact, and stylish (my wife doesn’t mind seeing the T20 on the counter — unlike the toaster she keeps hiding in the cabinet)
  • The cup holder is adjustable for different heights

Bosch T20 Beverage System Cons

  • On a per serving basis, it costs more than a bag of coffee beans, but cheaper than buying a cup at a coffee house (note: I received the brewer yesterday so I have not had time to do a thorough price comparison)
  • A couple of times I had to clean the bar code reader before it would brew the drink (it would be better if you could manually scan the bar code with a sensor that wasn’t located inside the brewing unit)
  • The coffee is hot, but not hot enough to sue McDonald’s for millions of dollars (personally, I think it’s just right but some drinkers may like their coffee hotter)

  1. I’m pretty easy, but whatever it is… I like it strong. Actually, I used to live next to a Starbucks, and everyday, I would get a venti of whatever the house special was with a doubleshot of espresso…then I would add the milk, sugar, and usually a dash or cinammon or chocolate. The result was always enough to knock you awake!

  2. MMMMMMM…My favorite is Starbuck’s Sumatra – so so so good! Strong and seriously intense coffee…seriously good stuff. Dark, not bitter, great flavor! MM MM MMMM – I’m gonna go get a cup now.

  3. I love to have a cappuccino after dinner, but it is too much work to make and clean using my cappuccino machine. The Tassimo Brewbot would be so much easier.

  4. My favorite is a Starbucks white mocha. Yum! At home, I make whatever coffee with white mocha cream in it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. This machine would be so neat to have because when I brew a whole pot, half of it goes to waste. My favorite coffee is Irish coffee.

  6. I love iced coffee! I especially like it with a Hazelnut flavor. I think Tassimo’s Gevalia Sweet & Creamy Iced Coffee T Disc sounds really good. I hope to try it!

  7. my favorite coffee is Gevalia French vanilla coffee

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway

  8. I actually don’t drink coffee but am looking forward to this machine because it makes more than coffee, I can’t wait to try the hot chocolate.

  9. I enjoy Starbucks Cappuccino Primo on the rare occasions I drink coffee. (I’m another tea drinker, but everyone else in the family loves coffee – and they all love it different ways.) mcgillrmcgill(at)charter(dot)net

  10. I love coffee. I drink it day and night. My favorite bag coffe is Dunkin Donuts, but I would really like to try Starbuck House blend that they have available for the Tassimo Brewer.

  11. My favorite coffee is most Gevalia brands. I love Folgers. I love a double skinny vanilla latte. I absolutely adore really really strong coffee. If I had a brewbot I would put double shot espressos in every cup of anything that I made!

  12. I have to say my favorite coffee right now is at McDonalds, although I don’t make coffee at home yet. I retweeted and now follow you on Twitter too. Thanks.

  13. I bet the Gevalia Caramel Latte Macchiato is fantastic and I’d love to try it and see if it’s as good as Starbucks.

  14. My favorite coffee of all-time is Gevalia Amaretto, I do not see it for the Tassimo offerings (I hope I will in the future), but I do see the Gevalia Signature Blend and that’s a very close second of a favorite of mine.

  15. My favorite coffee drink is Hazelnut Latte.
    And this would be perfect for making them at home.
