I received my Tassimo just last week and have now had the opportunity to see how it works and understand the features. I ran the cleaning cycle before the first use as directed. I purchased some Tassimo discs and have brewed coffee now a few times at home. It gives you the option to have a standard 8 oz cup and with a feature to add more hot water through the disc so that you can have a larger cup of coffee. I was concerned about this when I purchased it, but it will actually allow you to have a larger cup if you choose.
I purchased a number two coffee cone and number two filters so that I can choose to make my own coffee instead of using a disc. I like it that this option is available.
It is simple, sleek and doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles. It is straight forward.
I have not tried the cappuccino or hot cocoa discs, but I probably will in the coming months.
If you register your Tassimo online, they will send you free discs in the mail.
I am really happy with this purchase.
I purchased my Tassimo 3 months ago and we are very happy with it. We use it several times a day and have not had any problems. The box claims it is quiet, which is a bit of a stretch. My husband thinks it is loud but, it's not a bother to me. I love the single serve because we all like different beverages.
