Tassimo Arrives for Review

Tassimo Visit Pic1 Tassimo has arrived! If you aren't familiar with Tassimo, Tassimo is a new single serve coffee brewer & system from Braun and Kraft. The Tassimo does not use coffee pods or K-Cups, but a new hot beverage brewing system in the form of T-Discs. Each T-Disc has a bar code on it to tell the machine how the hot beverage of your choice needs to be prepared. Tassimo is also the first single serve coffee system to have liquid milk instead of powdered milk to make cappuccinos and lattes. Tassimo can make single serve coffee. single serve crema coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, tea and best of all - HOT CHOCOLATE.

Update: You can now order Tassimo at Amazon.com.

Tassimo will launch at the end of this September with a SRP of $169.99 with coffee T-Discs in the $.50 per cup range and lattes and cappucinnos in the $1.00 per drink range. You can sign up on the Tassimo web site to be notified when Tassimo will be available.

We will be testing the machine over the next few weeks and will let you know how the Tassimo fares.

Tassimo Update

Tassimomahciine
We've been in touch with Kraft over the past few weeks concerning their new Tassimo single serve coffee machine launching in the US this Fall. We will be receiving a review machine in the next month and can't wait to try what this machine has to offer. I'll keep you posted on how things develop and when the Tassimo machine arrives.

Update: You can now order Tassimo at Amazon.com.

Kraft to maintain German plants if German Tassimo launch successful

tassimo_us.jpgI'm really excited to try Tassimo in the coming months. It's hard to believe that the machine is just rolling out over the rest of Europe. After being so successful in France, Kraft will roll out the Tassimo in Germany soon. According to Forbes.com, Kraft will continue to operate and maintain Tassimo plants in Germany if the German Tassimo launch goes well. In Europe, Tassimo is battling Senseo for a slice of the very lucrative coffee market there. Analysts are saying that Tassimo will rival Senseo, the current market leading system in Europe, which is made by a joint venture of Sara Lee Corp and Philips Electronics NV.

Tassimo from Kraft To Be Made in US

tassimo_us.jpgOkay - I'm not an avid reader of Plastics & Rubber Weekly, but it does look like they have some great news for those of you interested in Tassimo. Tassimo is doing so well in Europe that 3 new sites in Germany are adding machines to produce more Tassimos for Europe. And best of all? The company making Tassimo for the US is buying a factory to make the Tassimo stateside. With the job cuts at General Motors of 25,000 jobs, this is great news for workers here in the US. Maybe it will not only make a great latte, but perhaps also support the lives of a few American workers who have been displaced by this so-so economy.

Update: You can now order Tassimo at Amazon.com.

Tassimo News from Reader

Tassimo LargeNews is filtering in as Kraft prepares to launch the Tassimo in the U.S. this Fall. I've been sifting through the reader mails and comments and this post has the most information I've seen yet.

P. Love writes in about the Tassimo:

"Just had the opportunity to see and taste the espresso, coffee, tea and hot chocolate line available wtih the Tassimo Coffee Machine. I am in love! Great for family or small office applications. We even experimented and made a cafe mocha! According to the info I was given, the product will be available through major retailers this fall, in the US at a price of $169.00. The water carafe will be larger that the one on the European model and will have a filtration system. The machines ran non stop at the FMI Trade Show, held recently in Chicago, IL.

According to those working the show there were very few problems with the machine, even running them all the time. The single serve disks will be packaged 8 or 16 to a package and the average cup of espresso will be approximately .30 a cup. (Compare that to Starbucks!) The tassimo will also accomodate travel mugs as well as your small espresso or demitasse cup. I can't wait! It is already on my wish list!"

Kraft Foods Debuts Tassimo Hot Beverage System in the U.S

tassimo_us.jpgLooks like Tassimo is coming to the US!!! I will start today to see if we can drum up a Tassimo and some T-Discs for a review! VERY EXCITING!

"Kraft Foods Inc. (NYSE:KFT), a global leader in branded foods and beverages, today announced plans to launch its proprietary Tassimo Hot Beverage System this fall, in the United States. The new brewing system, which will make its U.S. debut at the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago this weekend, redefines the "on-demand" coffee category by providing a menu of delicious, coffeehouse quality beverages that can be made at home in less than one minute. Kraft has already successfully launched the new brand in France, followed by more recent introductions in the United Kingdom and Switzerland, making this an innovative growth opportunity with great global potential."

Tassimo T-Discs Very Interesting

tassimo_small.jpgtassimo_tdiscs.jpgIt appears that many of the T-Discs for the Tassimo system from Kraft, will be found the dairy aisle of your local grocer. They will contain milk and other perishable items inside the T-Disc. Wow. This should make marketing them very interesting in US supermarkets - as there are no coffee products in the dairy aisle minus creamer.

"The ingenious TASSIMO Disc (T-DISC) is designed to work exclusively with the TASSIMO machine. Each T-DISC contains a precisely measured amount of coffee, tea, chocolate or concentrated milk, and is sealed to protect the precious flavors inside."

Tassimo Site Launches

deguster_int_left_img2.jpgThe Tassimo site in English and French has launched finally. Looks like it makes a perfect cup of expresso, hot tea, coffee - you name it - maybe even chicken soup!!!

It uses a cup system - like the Keurig - but of course different as the Keurig is patented. There is no information on where to buy it - or when it's available unless I'm not smart enough to find it on the web site.

It also appears in the picture that Braun is making main brewer - with Kraft making the cups.

Does anyone else know any details?

Tassimo from Kraft

Kraft has a very unique looking entry into the Single Serve Coffee market. Tassimo makes tea, coffee, and espresso. Don't expect Tassimo in the US anytime soon - it's rolling out in France first.

"With Tassimo, your wish will be granted in seconds...whether it is an exquisite espresso, an indulgent cappuccino, even a gentle cup of tea or a rich hot chocolate - all using quality brands that you know and love. Whatever you wish for, the Tassimo hot beverage system makes it simply perfect...at the touch of a button."
