tassimoTassimo first came to market in France in 2004 and is now available in Canada, Andorra, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Spain, Greece, The Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, United States, Russia, Portugal and the United Kingdom and Romania.

The pod coffee machines were originally developed by Kraft Foods, manufactured by Saeco and distributed by Braun. In early 2008, Procter & Gamble, the parent company of Braun, began phasing out sales of Braun kitchen appliances in North America and in August 2008 it was announced that the new generation of pod coffee machines would be manufactured by Bosch.

Tassimo T-Discs

tassimo pods Find best priceThe Tassimo system uses proprietary non-reusable plastic beverage pods, called T-Discs with a bar code on top that tells the coffee machine to use the proper brewing settings. It then changes the amount of water, temperature, and the brew time and strength. This allows the pod coffee machine to brew a variety of hot drinks such as filtered style coffee, cappuccino, short espresso, tea, and hot chocolate. The brewing process takes between 30–60 seconds which is fantastic.  Below are a few of the Tassimo pods available but if you want to see the full list, take a look at our Tassimo coffee pods page which breaks them down by type and brand.  Very helpful.

T-Discs are currently available under different brands owned and operated by Kraft Foods, including Mastro Lorenzo, Gevalia, Carte Noire, Twinings, Jacobs, Maxwell House and Suchard.  In some worldwide markets, Tassimo has entered into partnerships with other third parties to market T-Discs from non-Kraft brands, for example in the United Kingdom, T-Discs under the Costa Coffee brand have been sold in supermarkets and online since September 2012.

Current Tassimo Coffee Machines

bosch tassimo joy 2You can buy any of 5 models of the pod coffee maker compatible with the “home-use” T-discs.  These models are the T20, T46, T47, T55 and T65. While varying in price, color, availability of filter/display – they are functionally equivalent in that each maker will produce the same beverage from the same t-disc, so, the difference in price mostly comes down to design choices.

How to use Tassimo Pods

Which Bosch Tassimo pod coffee machine is best?

Bosch TAS4502GB Tassimo Joy 2 pod coffee machinesIf I was to pick one of the range, I would definitely go for
the Bosch Tassimo Joy 2 pod coffee machine.  Its price is excellent, I like the design and I can use a travel coffee mug easily which is great when I am rushing out the door.  Also, it is incredibly easy to use with its quick heat up time and auto cleaning settings.
