Tassimo TA 1200 Base Brewer Hot Beverage and Single Serve Coffee System Arrives for Review

B000Gh46Fc.01-A23Nlorbgxoleo. Ss500 Sclzzzzzzz V63827801

We first ran news of the Tassimo TA1200 earlier this year, and looked forward to a more affordable Tassimo than the pricier $169.99 Tassimo TA 1400 model. The two Tassimo Brewers - the Tassimo Premium and the Tassimo Base Brewer round out the line for Tassimo offering two unique price points of $169.99 and $129.99. What are the key differences in two models? We'll have full run down early next week with our thoughts and impressions.

Tassimo Base TA1200 Brewer Features:

  • Smart technology brews coffee, cappuccino, latte, hot chocolate and tea at the touch of a button
  • Bar code controls optimal brewing conditions including water and flow, drink size, brewing time and temperature
  • Makes café drinks with real milk
  • Adjustable cup stand accommodates various cup sizes from a 3-oz. espresso cup to an 11-oz. travel mug; 50-oz. water tank
  • Easy to clean—most of the movable parts are dishwasher safe

Quick Coffee Picks: Tassimo Maxwell House Café French Vanilla Coffee T Discs

Pop Mhcc Fr Vanilla

This morning we've been sampling the Maxwell House Café Collection French Vanilla for the Tassimo 1200 and 1400 models. It's a nice medium roast, medium body coffee made from Arabica beans and has a pretty smooth French Vanilla flavor. We think for flavored coffee it compares with many of the French Vanilla coffees we've tasted using coffee pods, and we're impressed that a Maxwell House coffee can taste this good. The Maxwell House Café Collection French Vanilla for the Tassimo comes packed 16 T DISCS per package, and at $3.99 per package, we think it's worth a try.

Seattle's Best Tassimo T Discs

Seattlesbest Tassimo Tdiscs

We just received the latest Wired magazine, and sure enough, there are Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs listed on the bottom of the advertisement for Tassimo. We've been hearing rumors from the Single Serve Coffee Forums, that on the back of every receipt Tassimo listed Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as an option. We can now confirm this is true.

We are really excited about this news. Since Starbuck's owns Seattle's Best, perhaps this is their way of testing the single serve coffee waters. Whatever the case may be, we can't wait to try the new Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs. We'll have more news and reviews of the Seattle's Best Coffee Tassimo T Discs as it happens.

Yuban Rain Forest Alliance Coffee for Tassimo

Pop Yuban Rfa

We've been sampling the new Yuban Rainforest Alliance for Tassimo and have to say - WOW. We love the smooth body and medium roast flavor along with the rich flavor the coffee provides in each sip. We only received three T Discs of the Yuban to try, and have not shared them with any of the staff at Single Serve Coffee except for a taste from an already brewed cup.

This medium-bodied coffee is made from 100% Arabica beans and Yuban is the world's largest supporter of Rainforest Alliance certified coffee beans. This partnership protects the environment and supports the people and wildlife in coffee growing regions. They come packed 16 T DISCS per package and are only $4.99 per package and are available at

Revisiting the Tassimo Single Serve Coffee Maker


As the summer draws to an end and we're getting ready for back to school and other fall wonders, we thought we'd point out a set of articles we ran earlier in the year detailing a return to Tassimo and a re-review of sorts.

Here's a look back at Tassimo over the last few months and some recent reviews:

Europe: 'Trump Tower' Like Hotel - A Tassimo in Every Room


This is a fun article detailing how a four star hotel should be run and it includes putting a single serve coffee maker in every room. We agree. Why wouldn't you want a perfect cup of coffee if you're paying 4 star hotel prices. Developer Andy Woodcock is planning a £2m transformation of the 19th century Institute located in the UK in a town called Hull, in Albion Street, into an "owner hotel", a concept based on a chain owned by US tycoon Donald Trump.

Every detail has been thought of: from the feel of the sheets as you slip into bed at night, to the Tassimo drink maker and laptop-size digital wall safe. There's even a choice of mattress: from extra firm to a soft type which moulds to fit your form. Downstairs in the public areas there'll be a DVD and CD library and games consoles for hire, a bar and restaurant and a waiting concierge to park your car.

Review: Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner Coffee T Discs for Tassimo

Review from Single Serve - Coffee Pod ReviewsImg 2547We are really excited to see Tassimo US importing new coffees for the Tassimo brewing system for sale here in the US. The new blend is available at the web site and is one of 4 new blends to be brought over from Europe. We decided to start with the Petite Dejeuner because we love a good light breakfast coffee and so far Tassimo had not had much variety in the single serve coffee market in this area.

We also thought we'd include our first video using You Tube for you to hear and see the coffee brewing in the Tassimo. Often we hear complaints on how loud and crazy the Tassimo is while brewing. We don't find this to be the case. It's definitely not in the quiet department, but it really isn't that loud. Since the Tassimo using a pumping method to brew the coffee in the T Disc, you can hear the pump being used while it brews. It kind of sounds like a toy tommy gun from our youth.

How good is the Carte Noire Petite Dejeuner coffee? How does it stack up against other Tassimo coffee or other single serve coffee we've had?
