Bosch Designed Tassimo Machine Picture Surfaces
We've got what we believe is the first picture of the Bosch designed Tassimo single serve coffee maker. Now we can't be sure this picture is the final production model, but we hope it is. This picture shows a slimmer design for the Tassmo single serve coffee and hot beverage system. We've always loved Bosch designs, so it's not surprising they took a step in a new design direction with the Tassimo. Apparently the machine is also much quieter. We'll provide more details as we find out about the Bosch designed Tassimo single serve coffee maker.
If you'd like a model comparison of the older Tassimo 1200 and 1400, and for a picture comparison check out our comparison article on Tassimo models currently available.

I'd also like to know if new Bosch T-Discs will work in the old Braun machines. I will be quite ticked-off if they finally come out with apple ciders, soups, etc. which can only be made in the Bosch.
Also, any word on pricing? Will it be $169 like the current 1400 model?
I like the fact that they've made the machine smaller and quieter, however, some of the cues in the photo bring up some key questions:
- Why a smaller water reservoir? Sure, you're reducing overall size so the machine can fit on a counter-top better, but you're also reducing the amount of cups we can brew before we have to do water refills.
- This unit is backwards-compatible with existing T-Discs, great... but what about any NEW T-Discs which come out in the future? Will the old Braun units be able to read those barcodes or will there be new features incorporated into the barcodes which only the Bosch machines can read?
- No waiting?? How is this possible? Wouldn't the heating element still take a minute or 2 to heat up?
Also, I see they didn't bother changing the way the drip tray functions. This (along with the noise) was the primary annoyance of most Tassimo users.
Would have been nicer if they could have built an internal, clear/see-through drip reservoir cup which could have been removed from the side of the machine.
That way, you don't have to worry about soaking the underneath of your travel mugs or having overflow water spill out of the tray.
Maybe in future versions?
I was hoping for some additional functions, like programmable feature/lcd display....different overflow system.................as of now, it just looks like a slimmer version of the same machine...
