The Tassimo Brewbot Tours Cities Across America

Tassimo Brewbot T20.jpg

Tassimo by Bosch is taking a a major road trip to four U.S. cities - Atlanta, Washington D.C., Chicago and New York City. Tassimo is also inviting people who stop by the Tassimo Brewbot Tour to upgrade their coffee experience by trading in their old brewers for a new Tassimo (each day the first 200 people will be eligible to do so). And through a partnership with Feeding America, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief organization, Tassimo will also help the lives of those struggling with hunger for people that post to Facebook pictures of the event. The road show culminates in New York City the first week of May with a weeklong destination for the city's true coffee lovers – The Tassimo Brewbot Cafe which sounds pretty cool given an actual brewbot will be there.

Details on the schedule are located on the Tassimo Facebook page.

Tour Features include:

  • The Tassimo Brewbot Mobile, a special vehicle featuring a giant Brewbot, will host events in popular locations throughout the four tour cities.
  • A larger-than-life Tassimo Brewbot "robot" will come to life and pose for photos with guests.
  • Each event day, the first 100 guests to arrive with an old coffee pot for trade-in will be upgraded to a new Tassimo brewer.
  • Visitors will be invited to snap their photos with the Tassimo Brewbot and post them to Facebook.com/TassimoUS.
  • For each user-generated photo posted, Tassimo will make a donation to Feeding America*, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief organization.

Now that Starbucks has left the Tassimo platform to make K-Cups, it looks like Tassimo Canada is adding lot of new coffees and teas to offset the departing Starbucks T-Discs. They've been announcing several new coffees on their Twitter feed, and we can only hope their US counterparts also announce some new coffees and teas as well.

Tassimo Professional Hot Beverage System Gets Skinny Cappuccino

Tassimo_PR-Image.jpg

If you're the proud owner of a Tassimo Professional in your workplace you'll be pleased to know you can also get skinny - skinny cappuccino that is. Kraft sent us over some of the skinny cappuccinos to try out on our Tassimo T65 CUL professional system, and we think you'll have to like them as much as we do. We always order our capp or latte with skim milk, and this Skinny Cappuccino hits the spot and waste line in the same fashion. Thanks again to Kraft for sending and full release after the jump.

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.
