Tassimo - Behind the Barcode Video Web Series

tassimobehndthebarcode.jpg

Tassimo Canada has a pretty amazing series going behind the barcode of the Tassimo Hot Beverage system. It's a series of stories and videos showcasing how the Tassimo is different than other single serve coffee systems. One thing we took away is how interesting the notion is that a barcode could brew coffee. Up until the Tassimo hot beverage system we'd never seen or even heard of a machine that would be able to read a barcode and use the instructions provided to make anything let alone a cup of coffee.

You'll want to watch all 4 videos and also check out the various pictures and stories in each section.

King of Joe Coffee for Tassimo and Others Debut

KingOfJoeDarkRoastTDrop.jpg

Single Serve Coffee reader Alan has written us about Tassimo T-Discs that have just become available including King of Joe Coffees and some latte drinks.

From Alan: I checked my Facebook account when I got home last night and noticed that Tassimo had posted about Corner Coffeehouse Caramel Latte. I was a bit suprised so I jumped right over to tassimo direct and here is what I found.

That makes five Tassimo T-Discs to come out this Summer for Tassimo. We'll let you know if we can get some of these to review, but we love the King of Joe name, so it had better be the king of coffee when we do get to try it.

Review: Cadbury Hot Chocolate T-Discs for Tassimo

Review Single Serve Coffee IMGP4479.JPG

We continue our reviews of Canadian T-Discs today with another submission from our Canadian Correspondent, SH. Today he’s reviewing the recent Cadbury Hot Chocolate T-Discs. Can they stand-up to what’s available this side of the border? Let’s find out.

Much like the Milka T-Discs available in America, Kraft have decided to introduce a Canadian version of sorts with their new Cadbury Hot Chocolate T-Discs. Each package comes with 8 chocolate syrup T-Discs and 8 concentrated milk T-Discs. Even though the packaging suggests that you brew the chocolate disc first, then the milk afterwards, we decided to start by brewing the milk disc followed by the chocolate disc. Once brewing is done, you need to stir everything together to achieve the final result.

President's Choice Tassimo T-Discs Debut in Canada


tassimo_tdiscs_presidentschoice.jpg

Seems like Tassimo is making a big push into Canada and adding more and more brands at the national grocery level. President's Choice is a brand of grocery products available at Loblaws and other national grocery chains in Canada and will now be marketing President's Choice Tassimo T-Discs.

Flavors so far are a mix of coffees and cafe style beverages. We're surprised the names aren't more interesting but then again this is a grocery store retail brand - not Starbucks making T-Discs with Tassimo.

Review: Carte Noire Long Espresso T-Discs for Tassimo

Review Single Serve CoffeeIMGP4465_tassimoreview_022312.JPG

We continue our reviews of new Canadian T-Discs today with another entry submitted by our Canadian Correspondent, SH. Today he reviews the recent Carte Noire Long Espresso T-Discs. A "long espresso" is pretty much similar to a "lungo" whereby you use the same amount of coffee at the same extraction level but increase the final amount of drink volume in the cup. As a result, you get a super-sized espresso with all the same amount of kick. Sign us up!

Bosch Tassimo T55 Espresso and Hot Beverage System

bosch-tassimo-t55-coffee-maker.jpg

There's a new Tassimo in town dubbed the Tassimo T55. Well - maybe not in a US town just yet, but they are launching this machine in Germany this Fall. The Tassimo T55 will use the T-Disc system which makes a perfect drink every time by using the Tassimo bar code scanner built into the T55.

Other features like the +/- button let you set the coffee strength to precisely match your taste. And the integrated BRITA filter in the water tank of this Bosch coffee maker ensures an enhanced quality of drink, while the transparent water tank allows you to see through the machine as if looking through an archway.

The Tassimo Hot Beverage System Makes a Lot of Coffee Drinks


tassimodrinks_all_ofthem.jpg

The Tassimo Hot Beverage system can make a ton of different coffee drinks and above is the entire chart for them. We've never ordered a Flat White or a Cafe Breve, but all of the other's we've ordered from time to time. Do you know of any other coffee drinks the Tassimo makes that isn't above? If so - click through to Tassimo at Facebook to tell them to update the chart. :-)

Mavea Maxtra Water Filter Plus Descaler for Tassimo Bosch Brewer


21HLctbGZ4L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

The Mavea Maxtra Water Filter for Tassimo Bosch Brewer also comes with a descaler for your Tassimo Bosch Brewer. The water filter also fits Mavea water pitchers so you can use one for coffee and one for pure fresh water.

Our 2 cents on a great cup of coffee - clean - clear - water. The better the water the better the coffee, and the Mavea filter has always done a great job in our Tassimo.
