Things 2 Get 4m London: Tassimo Coffee Machine!

One thing worth lugging all the way from London is this amazing coffee machine Tassimo. Yes we at home have more than one brand of coffee machines (check here) and we are hopeless coffeeholics. However this machine is MORE than just a coffee machine! How?

It looks like every other machine out there. An attached water tank. A place to put the tablets… it is much bigger than my nespresso Citiz but still it’s the tablets that makes all the difference…

The good news is that there are many flavours to choose from and not only coffee… Two hot chocolates (Suchard & Milka)… Twinnings Tea, Coffee of all types and kinds and flavors …

The bad news is each big box of coffee tablets contains only 8 tablets if it a milk based drink or 16 tablets if its only coffee. and it’s not cheap though in the long run it would be cheaper than buying Starbucks on your way to work every day. Of course the tablets must be brought over from London since they are not sold in Kuwait. I wonder if TSC Just Ask would bring them though?

The tablet boxes also serve as tablet dispensers and they are fun to put them side by side…

If you absolutely cannot live without Starbucks then this machine won’t disappoint you… Starbucks coffee tablets are available…

The tablet is not that big…

So how to make a cup of caramel macchiato? Pick the coffee table first…

Insert into the machine…

Close the lid wait for the light to go from heating to auto then push the button…

When the coffee is done remove the tablet to throw it away…

Next comes the caramel infused milk tablet…

Insert into the machine, wait, and push the button…

and a perfect cup of steaming caramel macchiato is made for my enjoyment!

How to make a delicious cup of insanely delicious Milka hot chocolate? You take the milka chocolate table first…

The smell of chocolate… MMmmmMMMMmmmmMMMM

Then you must dilute the liquid chocolate with milk -if you feel like it :p-

The machine is AMAZING! Totally worth bringing all the way from London!!! For more information about Tassimo you can visit their website

  2. Yum Yum Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuum! I’ve been thinking about adding another coffee machine next to my nespresso. This is easily the next best thing! I think I’ve seen ads of it on satellite TV. I brought an Xbox kinect bundle from London, I think this machine is doable too 😛 Problem is I don’t know when is my next trip 😦 for sure not before summer. I might as well tell my friend to get it for me since she goes to her brother’s family like 2 or 3 times a year. Of course she would kill me if I asked her to bring such a thing from London but I’ll try to bribe her or something. Buy her the ticket? Lol. Thanks for the review dear o bel3afiya :*

      Good luck… we have to check if Just Ask would bring the coffee tablets though

    soo tassimo or nespresso?


    • Posted by danderma on December 18, 2010 at 5:37 PM

      Tassimo is bulkier and the coffees are more expensive than Nespresso
      Tassimo makes more than just coffee and much faster… drinks are hotter though…
      Nesspresso is more compact… coffee tablets have more flavours and intensities and they are much cheaper and already available in Q8 so it depends whether what your situation, needs, and expectations are really…

    soo if you had to choose one or else a painful fate would befall you…which one?

      Get him a nespresso citiz like mine with the attached milk frother… or if you are willing to get the tablets for Tassimo from London in bulks get him a tassimo much easier to use and clean if you want milk!
