Review: Nabob Café Crema T-Discs for Tassimo

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews

nabob_crema.jpg

Nabob has been one of Canada's premier coffee companies since being founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1896. The brand is very well known among many Canadian coffee drinkers for its unique range of roasts which are made primarily with 100% Arabica beans. Nabob decided to follow most American coffee companies & recently joined the Rainforest Alliance to help maintain environmental, social & economic sustainability for their coffee farmers & workers.

Much like their 100% Columbian, Nabob's Café Crema has a surprisingly light & mellow taste... to the point where it could be considered one of the lightest-tasting cremas available for the Tassimo. Those of you who are hoping for a long-lasting, thick crema cap will be somewhat disappointed as this variety starts off with a very light one which quickly disappears after only a few minutes.

Bosch Tassimo Video - See the New Tassimo in Action

Check out this video of the Bosch Tassimo hot beverage system coming out in September. The Bosch Tassimo hot beverage system appears to be uber quiet, have hot water on demand (thus more eco-friendly), and there will be two models as stated earlier with the higher end model being a bit more quiet and coming with a water filter. We love the LED green for done, and the amber LED to put in another T Disc for making a cappuccino. Looks like Kraft and Bosh are on their way to have an amazing new single serve coffee maker re-appear this Fall.

Bosch TASSIMO Hot Beverage System - Models, Pricing and Launch Date Info

Picture_tassimobosch.jpg

Our good friend SH has written in to tell us more about the launch date and details of the new Bosch Tassimo single serve coffee hot beverage system that's coming to the US later this year. Two models of the TASSIMO hot beverage system by Bosch will be available in the U.S. in September 2008 with a MSRP of $139.99 in select specialty and department stores, and $99.99 in select grocery and mass merchandise stores. Both models will also be available online at www.tassimodirect.com.

Update: Read our Hands On Review of the Bosch Tassimo

There's also confirmation the new model will not have the messy overflow water, and will feature an LED user interface. Bosch's flow-through water heater ensures virtually no pre-heat time, since it only heats the water needed per beverage, and requires just a brief pause between uses. The removable water tank is easily accessible now, and the unit is simple to clean with a de-scaling maintenance disc. The two-step height adjustable and removable cup stand means that this unit is suitable for most cups, including travel mugs and heat-proof glasses.

We really hope they come out with different Tassimo colors like they have in Europe. The full details are after the jump and check out our earlier coverage of the Bosch Tassimo. While your waiting you can also read our review of the Tassimo Braun model available now.

Bob's Big Break - Tassimo in the Office

tassimo_bob.jpg

Tassimo is at it again with a rather interesting and unique piece of marketing here in the US. Bob's Big Break is a set of webisodes promoting the Tassimo Hot Beverage System. The humorous series follows the misadventures of Bob, the guy in the office who has appointed himself in charge of special projects that have little to do with actual work. Each episode gives viewers the chance to determine Bob's future at the office and also to submit their own stories of "Bob-like" characters in their own work places. The winning viewer submission will be filmed as the next "Bobisode." The series can be viewed at www.whohiredbob.com and via targeted Google placements.

We hope this leads to a real spot on The Office for Tassimo. Imagine Dwight and Michael having an espresso show down? One thing we noticed was how the webisodes and site try to make it the point that Tassimo is not really for the "office" per se, but is a home machine. We think the concept of the webisodes being so "Office" like, had to override the fact the Tassimo is truly a home hot beverage system.

More Bosch Tassimo Videos from France

tassimodirectorfrance.jpg

A few more new videos (all in French, of course) of the new Bosch Tassimo machine. These videos showcase some of the new buttons and lights of the Bosch Tassimo.

From SH:

The first video is a promotional clip from the Bosch Project Director where he describes how the machine is sleeker, how it'll be available in 4 colors which he describes in English (still can't figure out why he doesn't just say "rouge" "noir" and "argenté" instead of black, red & silver), he goes over some of the new features such as the lights for water refil & descaling. He also notes how the new machine will be available on France retail shelves in April 2008. He noted the goal of the project was to introduce a new Tassimo which was much more modernized & design-oriented to fit into contemporary settings/decor. I'm guessing that's why they decided to get rid of the see-through window on the top of the T-Disc chamber... because they thought it wasn't "sleek enough" or perhaps detracted from the machine's overall design?? You also get a good view of what size mugs/cups can fit on the cup stand.

The second video is one of the French bloggers testing an espresso in the machine at the brunch event last month in Paris.

More Tassimo from Bosch Sightings - Pictures and Video

SH from Canada is at it again with even more interesting thoughts on the new Tassimo designed and created by Bosch. He's noticed a Flickr gallery of photos taken by one of the bloggers at the Tassimo Bosch brunch event.

The blogger's name is Cyril Attias and he has a ton of pictures:

One picture has piqued his curiosity....

2209693269_3331a73832.jpg

From SH: Notice anything missing? No water run-off spout! Unless the spout has been moved further below so that it's covered by the cup stand, I'll take a wild guess that maybe this new Tassimo no longer leaks water. Remember, this is all just pure speculation on my behalf. Also interesting, water reservoir is the width of the machine (explains how they made it 2L) and it appears there's holes integrated into the lid so that you can fill water while the lid is still on.

We've yet to officially review the Starbucks Caffè Verona T Discs for Tassimo, but you can read our earlier reviews here and here of two other Starbucks T Discs. Like the other coffees we've had from Starbucks for Tassimo - the Verona T Discs produce excellent coffee. These also come packed in - 2 - 12 count boxes for just $19.99.

These T Discs will work in the Tassimo TA1400 and TA1200 hot beverage systems.

Tassimo Bosch Videos from France

We've got a couple of videos for you appearing on YouTube about the Tassimo Bosch single serve coffee maker. We're not sure how informative either of these videos are, but they do give you a great impression for how much the french do love their Tassimo coffee, espresso, and hot beverages.

The first video is more polished and definitely a promo. The second video is a slideshow of the different bloggers or press that attended the unveiling event in Paris.

It also appears no other Bosch Tassimo websites are online yet, and there's lots of juicy tidbits of the Bosch Tassimo features below.

Here's what SH had to say with a translation of the site from French to English:

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.
