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

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

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.
