Giveaway & Review: Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System [CLOSED]

I love coffee, need at least one cup a day. But the one thing I hate about coffee is making it myself. I have bought all sorts of devices and gizmos to make it easier, but nothing is easy enough . . . well, none make it easy while also producing a good cup of coffee. So when Karen asked me if I wanted to try the Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System by Bosch I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

The Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System is sleek and about the same size as a typical coffee maker (approximately 7.9"w x 11"h x 11.75"d). The unit can accommodate everything from small cappuccino cups right up to large travel mugs. Since I am the only coffee drinker in the house, the single serve size is just perfect.



The Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System could not be simpler to operate. Just place your cup under the spout, load up the T DISC flavor of your choice and press the unit’s only button. The Tassimo T20 brews exactly 8 ounces into your cup automatically. To top off a larger cup you simply press the button again and hold it down to add more.




Once you are done clean up is about as simple as brewing the coffee itself. Just pop out the T DISC bracket, rinse it off, snap it back in and you are done.



The Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System totally satisfies my desire to make easy coffee, but does it meet my other criteria...Taste? Well...YES! The coffee out of my Tassimo T20 is excellent. I finally have a way of making coffee at home, just for myself, that is both easy and delicious. But this Tassimo is not just for coffee. It can make tea, hot chocolate, latte, and just about any other hot beverage you can think of. My personal favorite so far is the Maxwell House Cafe Collection Latte.


The Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System is a winner. I can now have great easy coffee for one!  You can learn more about the T20, which is available in black or white and retails for $129.99, and the other Tassimo Brewers at TassimoDirect.com .
