Drip cup can be removed so you can put a travel sized mug under Easy to clean Inexpensive Small Footprint Makes great cappuccinos and lattes. The flavors are always very rich, smooth and has lots of froth Hot chocolate also comes out perfect Easy to use Very functional yet simple Sleek design The barcode reader allows for a no-fail drink Lots of drink options: tea, cappuccino, hot chocolate, lattes Some things to consider: Doesn’t come with any free T-discs Does not have water purifying system too slow to make drinks for a group Should be cleaned immediately if milk is used because there always seem to be leftover milk around the area where the creamer disc sits Always have to empty the bottom of the cup holder as this can accumulate a lot of overflow water T-discs variants are rather limited The T-discs are a little bit more pricey Sometimes the T-discs could not be “read” through the barcode and drinks have to be made manually Refills are hard to find Summary:Despite the limitation on the availability of the refills or the choices of flavors of the T-discs or Tassimo discs, the flavor that the available ones does produce using this machine is excellent. It does take a while to brew coffee and many owners, though they absolutely recommend this, advise that you keep it as a secondary coffee maker if you want a real quick cup in the morning. Tassimo Machine is perfect for making different drinks for guests, visiting family or for making hot-beverages throughout the day. Since it can make hot chocolate, even the kids will love this. This Single Serve Coffee Maker , having a small footprint, is great in the bedroom, the sitting room or in your office. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, always order a few weeks in advance because processing orders for refills can take a while. Highly recommended for the flavor and quality of the hot beverage it produces for such a low cost. An absolute bargain.
