Were You Fooled by the Tassimo Brewbot?

We've had some nice and not so nice reactions to the Tassimo Brewbot ads that feature a robotic Tassimo brewer. Lots of people seemed to think the robot was real (see the comments on our original post) and not just advertising the Tassimo brewer. Did you think it was real? We didn't, but then again we got the press release for the new advertising angle. It's also not surprising given the technical wonders we see everyday that people would be excited and think the robot could be real. Sound off in the comments and be NICE. :-)

Tassimo Brewbot Espresso Machine, Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker

brewbot_tassimo.jpg

Tassimo has debuted a new marketing angle for their previously labeled "hot beverage system" in the form of a brewbot. They are pushing the different automated and advanced features of the Tassimo system by making it well - more robotic, and from the future. What is a brewbot?

The Brewbot (BROO·bot) is an advanced
brewing machine programmed to make over
seven different varieties of beverages.
Brewbots can create coffees, lattes,
cappuccinos, espressos, hot chocolates and
coffee cremas all at the touch of a button.
a.k.a. Roboticus Brewtus.

The Tassimo machines however have not changed but just given a new marketing name. These are the same models repackaged with brewbot marketing. We're actually not sure how much they'll change the line later this year or early next to match the brewbot marketing, but we expect some new models to help accentuate the brewbot idea. So you're T20, T65, and T45 models remain the same you'll just need to speak in robot to get them to make a cup of coffee.

There's even a new video that features the brewbot brewing up a ton of interesting single serve coffee options, and touts the Starbuck's, Suchard, and other brands for the Tassimo Brewbot.

Review: Tassimo Pro T65 CUL Single Serve Coffee Maker and Hot Beverage System

Review Single Serve Coffee tassimo_pro_review_shot.jpg

We've been fortunate enough here at Single Serve Coffee to test and review every single serve coffee maker for consumers, but we've often not tested many of the professional offerings for small business. We're pleased to say the folks over at Tassimo sent us the Tassimo Pro T65 CUL Single Serve Coffee Maker and Hot Beverage system to review.

That being said we think reading our reviews of the consumer models will give you the larger background on the machine, system, and how it works, along with a familiarity of the features the Pro models use as well.

Tassimo Professional Brewer Lineup

The Tassimo Professional line of brewers include the T65 CUL and the T-300. The T65 is designed for use with small office and requires the coffee drinker to dispose of each T-Disc as they brew cups of coffee, where as the T300 is designed for a larger office with a 20 T-Disc bin capacity. The T65 is also not able to be plumbed, but the T300 Tassimo professional brewer is.

Tassimo Pro T65 CUL Single Serve Coffee Maker Arrives for Review

tassimo_pro_t65_cul.jpg

We've received the Tassimo T65 CUL Professional Single Serve Coffee and hot beverage system to review. Much like the consumer Tassimo T65, the professional model has upgraded components to meet the standards of being used in a workplace. There is also a larger T-300 Tassimo brewer, and we'll just have to see if the T65 is any different from the regular T65. One difference we know is the consumer T-Discs will not work in the commercial brewer because the bar code scanner is in a different location.

  • The new TASSIMO PROFESSIONAL T-300 and T-65 brings everything you love about the TASSIMO system to your workplace.
  • The TASSIMO PROFESSIONAL T-300 automatically ejects used T-DISCS and cleans to prepare for next beverage. Can be connected into a water line for continuous use
  • Provides the same specialty lattes, cappuccino and custom creations made with real-milk creamer and espresso
  • Delivers the same perfect cups of GEVALIA Coffee, TWININGS Tea and SUCHARD Hot Chocolate, prepared at the touch of a button

Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage and Single Serve Coffee System Arrives for Review

T20_TASSIMO.jpg

That's right we've finally gotten our hands on a Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System to review. The footprint is smaller, and so far we like it but miss the digital LCD display of the T65 model. We'll have more details as we put together our review, but so far so good.

  • 1.5 litre tank which should mean that you don't need to refill constantly
  • Water is only heated on demand and the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System goes into stand-by mode when not in use.
  • As well as coffee, cappuccino, espresso and macchiato drinks from Carte Noir, Kenco, Seattle's Best, and Starbucks the Tassimo Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System can also make Milka hot chocolate, Starbucks House Blend and Twinings English Breakfast Tea.
  • The main parts of the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System can be taken apart and put in the dishwasher.
  • There is a compartment for the quick-start manual and cable storage.

Tassimo T20 Single Serve Coffee and Hot Beverage System

bosch-tassimo-t20-206574.jpg

We've had several reader write ins that they've seen the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System in their local Target. We were under the impression the Tassimo T45 model would have a longer shelf life, but it looks like the Tassmio T20 will now take over the price point at $99. Reader impressions are the quality of the machine is not the same as the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System, and the new cup stand is a bit flimsy. We'll have to get a Tassimo T20 ourselves and do a review soon.

TN-577577_NEWTASSIMOT20.jpg

  • Comes in White and Black
  • 1.5 litre tank which should mean that you don't need to refill constantly

Review: Nabob Skinny Latte T-Discs for Tassimo

Review Single Serve CoffeeIMGP3785.JPG

Nabob uses a combination of their espresso T-Discs and the usual latte milk creamer T-Discs which are common among most latte varieties such as those offered by Maxwell House & Gevalia... only this time, they've decided to follow suit and give people a healthier choice with their own Nabob Skinny Latte T-Discs. These have apparently just been released on the Canadian market within the past few weeks.

The skinny latte creamer is now composed of skim milk concentrate which Nabob claims has 56% fewer calories than their regular latte creamer (packaging shows 35 calories total & 0g of fat). We found it lost most of its buttery taste and seemed more akin to evaporated skim milk. As we've reported in the past, we don't personally dislike the taste of the original creamers, but thought Kraft still had some room for improvement. The same holds even more true with this "skinny" version, but more on that later.

Review: Milka Hot Chocolate T-Discs for Tassimo

Review Single Serve Coffeemilka.jpg

After our recent battle with a frozen downspout, we didn't quite feel like getting a coffee buzz once back inside the house, so instead, we started craving some good old-fashioned hot chocolate. This got us to thinking, it's been ages since we reviewed any hot chocolate T-Discs for the Tassimo system and there hasn't been anything available to our liking... until the introduction of Milka Hot Chocolate T-discs on tassimo.com several months ago.

More common to the European market than on "this side of the pond", Milka Hot Chocolate is a combination of chocolate syrup T-Discs blended with European milk creamer T-Discs. The goal is to create a creamier version of hot chocolate than what we're used to with the Tassimo system. We've tried to enjoy the only other option, Suchard T-Discs, through their original version to their larger creamer-sized version and back to their recent "European Recipe" version, but they're just too watery for our liking and left a lot to be desired.
