Review: Bosch Tassimo Suprema Single Serve Coffee Brewer and Hot Beverage System

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsPicture_tassimobosch_new_review.jpg

The Tassimo Hot beverage system has been out in the US for the past two years, and when it launched was made by Braun. Last year Tassimo decided they needed to update the system, and went with a new partner - Bosch. Even though we really liked the older Braun model, we're glad Bosch got the job. The new Bosch Tassimo is completely redesigned, and the design changes are far reaching. Gone is the annoying loud brewing, the spill back of water after brewing a cup, and the unit heats and brews much faster.

The Bosch Tassimo Suprema Hot Beverage system.

Two models of the TASSIMO hot beverage system by Bosch are now available in the U.S. For this review, we tested the TAS4511UC model with an MSRP of $139.99. The TAS4511UC Bosch Tassimo is now available in select specialty and department stores as well as online. There is also a $99.99 Bosch Tassimo that will be available in select grocery and mass merchandise stores. The main difference in the two models is the water reservoir filtration, and aesthetics.

Update: Tassimo is now calling this system a "brewbot". What's a brew bot? 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 machines are the same as earlier Tassimo Bosch models above but being marketed as brewbots.

Tassimo Bosch Hot Beverage System Ready to Order and Shipping

Picture_tassimobosch_new.jpg

That's right - you can now order the Tassimo designed by Bosch, and expect delivery of the new system in early September from several online merchants. Some readers are claiming delivery may be as soon as this week if you order from Amazon.

We've also gotten word that several Single Serve Coffee readers have spotted the new Bosch designed Tassimo Hot Beverage system in the wild:

From Henry:

They had the new Tassimo at the Bloomingdales, King of Prussia, PA store. I couldn't believe it when I saw it because it's so tiny. As short as the Keurig B30, but it was long. (probably as long as the current Keurig. The parts don't feel as nice as the Keurig, but it is a piece of art.

The only downside was they had it priced at $175 retail. They said it's going on Friday for $139.

We'd wait until Friday to get the lower price. Currently, we've found the best pre-order price at Amazon for $139. We'll also have a full review of the Tassimo Bosch Hot Beverage system very soon as our review unit should be arriving this week.

You can read more about the features of this Bosch Tassimo single serve coffee system here.

More Tassimo Bosch Event Pictures

IMG_2462.jpg

We attended the Tassimo Bosch Hot Beverage System press event at the House Beautiful Kitchen pavilion two weeks ago in New York City, and YES - we've got even more pictures for you. These were sent from the staff photographer on-site, and we have to say - are much better pictures than the ones our Canon SD200 takes.

The water tank is a very cool blue with Mavea filter.

The new machine sort of looks like the older machine but a bit sleeker.

Two models of the new TASSIMO hot beverage system by Bosch will be available in the U.S. in September 2008. One, sold in specialty and department stores, will have an MSRP of $139.99; a second, available in select grocery and mass merchandise stores, will sell for $99.99.

Review: Nabob Latte T-Discs for Tassimo

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews

IMG_0229.jpg

Our Canadian correspondent S.H. has a another insightful review of Canadian T-Discs for Tassimo...

Nabob uses a combination of their espresso T-Disc (which I recently reviewed) and the usual shelf-stable latte milk creamer T-Disc which is common among most latte varieties such as Maxwell House Latte & Gevalia Latte.

IMG_0238.jpg
You first make a shot of espresso...

The latte milk has a somewhat buttery taste and some may even find it tastes like 2% evaporated milk. Some people hate the taste and claim it's "too chemical" while others enjoy it so much they purchase the discs as stand-alones and use them with other coffee T-Discs or by themselves as a form of warm milk. Personally, I don't dislike the taste but I wish Kraft could improve it somehow. I have yet to sample the European creamer discs which come with the Jacobs or Kenco brands so I'm not sure if those would taste any better or worse.

More Tassimo Bosch Pictures and Info

IMG_6555.jpg

We attended the Tassimo Bosch Hot Beverage System press event at the House Beautiful Kitchen pavilion last week in New York City, and we got some new facts on this new single serve coffee and hot beverage system. Over the past few days, we've been able to consolidate all of our findings into a list of new facts and features.

New Tassimo Bosch Facts and Features:

  • All Tassimo T Discs from the earlier "Braun Tassimo" era will be compatible
  • The water filtration is by Mavea. The filters appear very Brita-like.
  • The system does features a "steam" purge at the end instead of the messy water cycle
  • The Cup stand is much improved over the earlier model
  • The Tassimo Bosch can fit larger travel mugs
  • It's truly ready to brew - the brew cycle is very quiet and much faster
  • The water tank is easier to carry
  • The power cord is very thin and because it's so small it makes it seem like the Tassimo could be "wirelessly" powered
  • The cleaning disc is stored in the back between the water reservoir and the main machine
  • There's an overall reduction in power needed - as the water is on demand making the machine much more eco-friendly

Also there's going to be 2 new coffees from Starbucks coming at around the time of launch. And Starbucks and the Tassimo team are also working on other "Starbucks coffee related drinks" that hopefully will emerge sooner than later. Can you say mocha mint latte? We hope the team and Starbucks cook up some of the more fun drinks Starbucks has at their stores.

What are our thoughts and impressions? Did we like this new Tassimo designed by Bosch?

Starbucks Africa Kitamu T-Discs for Tassimo - So Good

starbucks_africa_kitamu-430-2.jpg

We still highly recommend getting some Starbucks Africa Kitamu T Discs for your Tassimo Hot Beverage system. We've been drinking another batch after looking back on our earlier review. There's just something nearly perfect about making a cup of Starbucks coffee at literally 1/3 the price you would pay at the store. These T Discs will work in your TA1400 and TA1200 hot beverage systems, and the upcoming Bosch Tassimo Hot Beverage system.

Review: Nabob Espresso T-Discs for Tassimo

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod ReviewsIMG_0218.jpg

Our Canadian correspondent S.H. has a another insightful review of Canadian T-Discs for Tassimo...

Nabob has 3 different espresso-based T-Disc flavors on the Canadian market... Espresso, Latte & Cappuccino. The 2 latter varieties both use the same espresso disc I'm reviewing here today with the only difference being the milk discs they include in their packaging. I'll have a review of the Nabob Latte T-Disc soon, but for now I wanted to start off with the most basic of the 3 selections.

One thing which seems to be consistent with Nabob's coffee has been to "expect the unexpected" (maybe they should use that as their new slogan?). Their Café Crema T-Disc surprised me with its mellow taste and bittersweet finish, so much so that I thought it compared well with their 100% Columbian in these regards. I figured to expect the same from their Espresso but once again, I had a unique experience awaiting me.

Bosch Designed Tassimo Pictures Surface at Flickr

The Bosch designed Tassimo in the wilds of a British kitchen.
My god...it's full of espresso drinks...

Most days we wish we lived in Europe just to sample the single serve coffee makers like the Bosch Tassimo that debut there instead of launching in the US first. If we were British, we'd take lots of cool pictures of our new Bosch Tassimo, and then post them on Flicker all while watching reruns of Doctor Who.

Check out the full set of pictures here, and US launch details can be found here.

Thanks to SH for pointing this out and for Flickr user HappyCheeseCake for letting us use the picture.
