I've had my Tassimo for five years and simply love it. It brews the perfect cup of coffee, espresso, cappuccino, mocha, hot chocolate, chai latte, fancy coffee house lattes and even iced coffee, every time thanks to the ingenious barcode system. Each t-disc has a barcode which tells the machine exactly what you are brewing which allows you to brew both coffee discs and discs with cream in them or chocolate syrup, something you can't do with k-cups. The water reservoir is large enough that you can make quite a few cups before having to refill it. The machine really does all the work from there, including knowing exactly what temperature the water should be for the beverage you are brewing. It also knows how much water to use. There are some t-discs which brew a larger, 12oz cup of coffee which is great if you like a little extra in your cup. Even if you just buy the regular 8oz size, the Tassimo allows you to brew a little extra coffee by simply holding in the brew button once the initial brew cycle has finished. I have used that sometimes for when I brew a stronger coffee and want to weaken it just a little. It's a great feature and again, not something available on a Keurig.
The biggest drawback to the Tassimo is that it is becoming harder to find the t-discs in stores. There are quite a few varieties available online though and many places have free shipping and discounts if you set up repeat orders. Perhaps another drawback is that because the machine does brew things other than just coffee, if you choose to make lattes, mochas, or hot chocolate, you will need to run some clean cycles to help keep your machine fresh. The nice thing is that each Tassimo comes with a cleaning disc so after you're done making your latte you can just pop in your cleaning t-disc and the barcode on it tells the machine exactly what to do and within one or two cups of just brewing water your machine will be clean and fresh.
I really wish everyone who had a Keurig could try out the Tassimo and see the difference.

Brew Performance
Brews a great cup of coffee, mocha, latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate or tea every time.

Ease of Cleaning
The cleaning disc that comes with the machine is as easy to use as brewing a cup of coffee. The water container is easy to wash the rest of the machine just needs to be wiped down every once in a while.

Ease of Use
With the barcode system it really does everything for you.

Design
Functional yet elegant design.

Durability
I've had my Tassimo for years and never had any problems with it.

I received a free Tassimo Single-Cup system from the company, as part of a promotional outreach to people on Twitter. I was very excited to try it out, as my drip maker wasn't really cutting it. While the convenience of the Tassimo and similar systems can't be beat, I did not keep my free machine once I used up the free coffee disks I was given because the cost of the disks was just not economical. In the end, the convenience wasn't worth the cost to us, and we purchased a coffee press and hand burr grinder instead, which produced a far, far, tastier cup of brew anyhow. I can't drink Tassimo coffee unless I load it with milk and sweetener to mask the flavor, but I can drink my French-press home brew black, and enjoy it.

Brew Performance
If you typically use cream and sugar in your coffee, then a Tassimo-brewed cup may suit you. If you're used to drinking poor quality coffee, you won't have any issues with Tassimo coffee. But if you really love coffee, you are very unlikely to be happy with joe made with a Tassimo.
However, the hot cocoa disks were delicious, and the tea disks were OK.

Ease of Cleaning
There are some little grooves and such in the top where the disk is inserted that can require extra attention to clean (such as the sensor area), but for the most part a Tassimo is no harder to clean than a drip coffee machine. And if your model has the water filter built in, you'll avoid some of the hard water build up you might get in a drip maker (unless you use filtered water).

Ease of Use
The selling point of this product is the convenience, and in all fairness, you won't find a simpler way to get a cup of coffee. It's easier than any other home-brew technique, and, to be fair, easier than hitting the shop or drive through and waiting in line to order a coffee. However, with minimal effort, there other ways of brewing (single cups or pots) that don't feel at all inconvenient once you're used to them, and will make you a much cheaper and much tastier cup of coffee.

Design
As counter-top appliances go, it's not an ugly machine. I think the company would benefit from manufacturing models in a wider range of colors (much like Kitchenaid Mixers), but still, not bad. And the Tassimo has a weight and presence to it that makes it seem sturdier than the average drip machine (to be fair, more expensive drip machines also have a more durable feel).

Durability
I cannot comment on the long-term durability of the Tassimo, as I sold mine before a year of ownership. But during my time using the machine, I had no trouble.

Best Single Cup Coffee Maker that I have ever used.

By 

from USA

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

As someone who arguably has a minor addiction to coffee, you can trust me when I say I have tried all of the single cup coffee makers. While other single cup makers, like the Keurig are good, I found the Tassimo to be the best. Some of the functions that I enjoy are that they do more than coffee and plain tea. For example you can even have steamed milk for an espresso or chai. That is the number one reason why I say this is the best single cup maker out there.

Brew Performance
On average it takes about 2, if that, minutes to make me a fresh hot cup of coffee.

Ease of Cleaning
Very simple, the bottom compartment that is meant for an over flow situation slides out, and you can simply just wipe down the rest of the machine.

Ease of Use
It's simple, you turn it on, start the brewing, then have the option to add more water as desired.

Design
Efficient. It's a tiny bit bigger than your average Keurig, but not by much, and in my opinion it is still a better choice than other options out there.

Straight forward, modern, comforting

By 

from USA

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

The Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10, is easy to use. Modern design, and very flavorful. It gives you the expertise of being in a coffee shop, but is in the comfort of your own home. It is also very budget friendly compared to some other brewing machines. The only downside, is that it seems there is only a limited amount of flavors you can purchase for this product.

Brew Performance
It has a very good brew performance, that I enjoy every time I make a cup of Tassimo. I enjoy the fact the it takes very little time to brew a cup, and smells amazing in the process.

Ease of Cleaning
It has a removable drip cup that can be removed and cleaned, with a little dish soap and warm water. Its very quick and easy to do so.

Ease of Use
Its very easy to use. The buttons are easy to understand. It comes with a manual, that is straight forward, and easy to understand also.

Design
Very modern and fits to its surroundings extremely well.

Durability
This product looks and feels extremely durable. I can see this product lasting a long time.

Good little machine

By 

from USA

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

The machine is good. The way it drips hot coffee or chocolate is amazing! The barcode system really works! The only bad thing is that although I like most of the coffee varieties offered through tassimo products, but I find there are not too many choices on coffee. However, you can have other drinks like hot chocolate, cappuccino, latte, tea with it. It's that much of a WOW machine but it does what it is supposed to do and I'm overall satisfied. My favorite drink is the cadbury chocolate...some people don't like though...I don't know I find it rather tasty!

Brew Performance
Not that much of a WOW machine but its great to have one at home for convenience!

Ease of Cleaning
Pretty easy cleaning. Comes with its own cleaning t disc!

Ease of Use
So easy its unbelievable! Just put t disc and click! Water just needs to be refilled once, no need to refill it everytime you make a cup!

Design
I just love the barcode design! It allows home owners to brew like major stores!

Durability
I just bought mine. May be 3 months in. So can't comment much on durability. However, its a powerful machine. I expect it to last longer than a year!

the ease of one minute one cup coffee

By 

from USA

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

it's just so easy to make one cup of coffee. and I must admit I never was good at getting the ratio for te perfect cup until this machine came along. Plus they sell my favorite brand tim hortons coffee. Making the latte using this machine was also a very fun experience made in 2 parts first the frothy cream then the expresso to give it that kick. yummy and so easy to make just one. and clean up EASY!

Brew Performance
the t disc has to be in there just perfectly because if not it punchs the foils and when you brew is makes a coffee ground MESS!

Ease of Cleaning
so easy just run the system with the special t -disc easily hidden behind that machine and bam it cleans itself.

Ease of Use
its ao easy to just make one cup of coffee for those of us that are coffee illiterate but love to drink it

The pods are reasonable and a load of choice. I like the hot chocolates, and I find them a perfect temperature. States how big the cups need to be too. It takes less than a minute to make the brew of your choice, and I find it easier then using a kettle too. Only had it a week, and very happy with the product.

Good Coffee Maker

By 

from USA

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

Overall I would say the Tassimo Brewpot is a nice coffee maker. The only thing I would change would be the noise it makes while brewing, it is a little noisy, but just a little. I would recommend this brewpot to anyone who likes a nice strong cup of coffee.

Brew Performance
No real big problems with brewing, it is a bit noisy, I thought it would be a little more quiet, but not a big deal. The coffee to me, is pretty strong, so I can make two cups from one pod.

Ease of Cleaning
I haven't had any problems with cleaning it. It does steam up and sometimes it will spray a little coffee over it's self, but not a big problem just wipe it off.

Ease of Use
This coffee pot is pretty easy to use. Fill the reservoir and turn it on. FYI you can't start it without one of the Tassimo pods in it, so that's a good thing.

Design
It's not too big and it's not too small. It's about the size of any one cup brewer. I like the fact that if you want to make more than one cup it has a big reservoir, so it holds a good bit of water.

Durability
I've had this coffeemaker for over a year now, and it still works like the first day I plugged it in. Now granted, I don't use it every day but I don't see any problems with it if I would.

A coffee maker for the whole family!

By 

from Jackson, MS

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

I bought this second hand and I am so happy I did. My husband loves coffee and he enjoys adding the espresso shots and creamers directly to the coffee while it is brewing. My kids enjoy it because they can make themselves a cup of hot cocoa in an instant. That really saves time considering I don't have to heat up individual cups of water or boil a pot of water for them. One of the best appliances I have ever had!! And it does not hurt that I got it for a great price too!

Ease of Use
It is so simple to use! My nine year old son has no problem operating this appliance. He loves choosing a disc and popping it in the coffee maker and watching his cocoa brew

Design
I love how the machine reads the bar codes on the discs and know exactly how much water to add to the mix. It definitely takes the guess work out of the equation and ensuring that you get a good strong cup of coffee, cappuchino, or hot cocoa.

Great espresso maker, but limited in drinks.

By 

from Lavon, TX

Comments about Tassimo by Bosch Single-Cup Home Brewing System T10:

This is a good pick for an espresso maker for a few reasons: ease of use, ease of cleaning, easy to refill, and quick. It has a stand under the dripper that "spirals" up and down to provide the right size platform for the drink which makes it great for smaller cups or shots. This platform can be easily removed and cleaned as well. The water reservoir comes equipped with a handle and is removable from the machine as well which makes it easy to refill. My only qualm with this maker, and it's kind of a big one, is that the drinks are more expensive and harder to find than the K-cups made to go with the Keurig. Manufacturers print coupons galore for the K-cups and they go on sale often, but Tassimo coffee pods have less variety, are harder to find, and are rarely on sale or have a coupon. For that reason alone, if this one hadn't been gifted to me I would've opted for a Keurig.

Brew Performance
Quick and easy brew. If you want to brew through an espresso pod multiple times, you have to "trick" the machine by opening and closing again bu it works well.

Ease of Cleaning
Removable parts make it very easy to clean.

Ease of Use
Put the pod in and press a button- how much simpler can it get?

Design
The design is aesthetically appealing, but it is wide and stout. I wish they would've designed it with a more narrow, slim design to free more counter space- or keep the short and stout design and make it mountable under the cabinet somehow.
