Are Tassimo pods expensive?

tassimo pods varietyThe Tassimo pod coffee machines themselves are very affordable but people are often put off thinking that it must be expensive to constantly be buying Tassimo pods. This was true a few years ago when they first came to market but not anymore.

Today, Tassimo pods are everywhere meaning that you can buy them from your local supermarket and on lots of websites at huge discounts like Amazon.  You can always find deals and multipacks on offer which means that you can even buy in bulk to reduce the price further.  As mentioned above, the huge range of flavours on offer means that you will never get run out of new flavours to try ever again.

Combine the low price of the Tassimo pods with the cheap, easy and quick to use coffee machines themselves and you can see why so many people are using them today.

Current Tassimo Coffee Machines

bosch tassimo joy 2There are 3 models that use the T-Discs, the Intermediate, the Suprema (which comes with Red or Silver highlights) and the Premium which comes in ‘Twilight Titanium’.

There are 5 models of single cup coffee maker compatible with the “home-use” T-discs.  However the T46 and T65 are no longer offered for sale in the US.  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.

There is also a Professional model designed for office and trade use. T DISCs designed for use in this model can’t be used in domestic machines.

The Bosch Tassimo pod coffee range are an excellent choice, they are well made and are amongst the cheapest on the market today.  They look more like traditional coffee machines and less like coffee machines of the future and although they are slightly more traditional than the Nescafe Nespresso machines they fit in well in any kitchen today.

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.
