So expensive? 40 pence? My Nespresso works out at 27p without looking for discounts! Plus you get a free machine unlike the Tassimo... wow...
Definitely a great taste to this one. Cheers for sharing

be sure to register your machine for £20 in vouchers to spend On the tassimo website.
Having one of these as well as a Vivy, I can honestly say this is easily their best machine.

2l water tank means the whole family can sup up without needing to refill it.

Got to be a local mis-price or possibly shifting stock just before the UseBy date expires - regular is £5+ - the £4 is itself a deal. The "NEW" refers to the Vanilla Latte itself so it's not a old/new thing with that.
I checked these at Asda in Livingston and they were scanning at £4. Not sure if there's perhaps an old version and new version as the packets in Asda have "New" stamped on the outside.
Any in Manchester?
Anyone know if this is national? my local asda is too far for a wild goose chase lol

It's about £35 in Asda.
The Tassimo pods are about £4 for a pack of 8 at Sainsbury's at the moment. That's 50p a cup. If you have 2 cups a day that's £365 a year on top of your £39.95 machine. That is £400 in your first year!

If you only care about coffee and not the other flavours, you might be better off spending much more on a bean-to-cup coffee machine like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DeLonghi-Magnifica-Espresso-Cappuccino-ESAM4200/dp/B001EOMZ5E/ That is £260, leaving you £140 to buy coffee beans over the year. £140 of coffee beans should be more than enough to give 2 or more cups per day.

If you don't care about the frothy coffee and just want a good, simple bean-to-cup machine, you can get one for just £65 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Igenix-IG8225-Digital-Filter-Coffee/dp/B0140UWP44/

Even with the expensive machine, after the first year, you are quids in! With any bean-to-cup device, the coffee will taste much better, and you aren't using environmentally unfriendly pods!

It's a bit like inkjets - if you get a cheap machine they will sting you for small quantities of ink. The pod machines are the same - cheap machines and they make up the money with overpriced consumables.
I'm afraid this is pretty much the normal price for the Vivy. If your interested in these then be aware Tassimo are still offering the Fedilia (T40) plus 12 drinks packs bundle for £53 with free post.

https://www.tassimo.co.uk/offers/fidelia-bundle-/p-fidelia1/

I think there's still a discount code available for 10% off and a free descaler kit, etc.. Though you can't stack codes. If you can register another Tassimo product prior to your purchase they'll even email you a £10 off code straight away that you can use. Finally, with cash back, if paid out will reduce it by another £3.50'ish. Total cost £39.50 if cash back tracks.

Ordered one a week ago as the drinks alone come to more than £39.50.

Hope this helps.

They get their money back a dozen times on the pods.

Looks like a bargain but how does it compare to the Inissia which seems to be rated pretty highly on here. Is there much difference?
I've got both the Tassmio Fidelia and the Nespresso Inissia.
Initially bought the Tassimo because it was a lot cheaper - it makes decent black coffee but avoid the lattes and cappuccinos - the milk cartridges contain sickly, oversweetened UHT milk which is deeply unpleasant.
It can be friustrating because there's only a limited range of coffees avaialbe on the high street and Tassimo charge postage (there used to be a lot of discount codes for their website but these seem to have dried up recently).
This package seems a decent price, but bear in mind you may not appreciate all the drinks that come with it - the latte/cappiccinos only give you 8 drinks per pack because you need one coffee capsule and one milk capsule per drink (I ended up throwing away the milk capsules and just using the coffee). One of the packs is for tea, which seems pointless - just use a kettle and some tea!
I bought the Nespresso while it was on offer (like the Tassimo it came with so much coffee that it was effectively free) because the drinks seem to be more widely available (the patent on the Nespresso capsule has now expired so other manuracturers make compatible ones) and generally cheaper (you can often pick up a 10 ack for £2 on offer). However, I find the own brand ones pretty poor (I like strong coffee and none of them seem to be very strong). Nestle's own are excellent but only available online (more postage to pay) or in their own shops (my nearest branch is 50 miles away).
Both machines make decent black coffee once you've found a capsule you like.
So it comes down to how you prefer to drink your coffee...
The Nespresso will only make a small coffee (espresso or lungo), the Tassimo makes bigger coffees and it's easy to add extra hot water for an Americano (you can get espresso capsules for the Tassimo but only online and there are only 2 types to choose from). So for espresso I'd go for the Nespresso machine. For bigger black coffees the Tassimo is probalby better.
If you like cappuccino or latte, get the Nespresso machine with an Aeroccino - it heats and froths fresh milk in about a miniute and is easy to use and clean after. Unless you like syrupy coffee in which case you might be OK with the Tassimo (you'll pay more for their capsules of UHT milk but they're easy to store). It's worth waiting for Nespresso to do their vouchers offer (you should be able to get an Inissia with Aeroccino for £70 and claim £75 in coffee vouchers from Nestle).
Both my machines are in the staff-room at work. I rarely use the Tassimo any more - but that's because I like steamed milk and no sugar in my coffee.
At home I wouldn't have either - it's cheaper to buy ground coffee and it doesn't involve throwing away a lot of plastic capsules (Nestle's own brand capsules for the Nespresso are the only ones that are reasonably easy to recycle) but at work convenience wins.


Quite a lot wrong with your review. I have both Nespresso and Tassimo. I would sum up that Tassimo is good for the lattes, cappuccinos and drinking chocolates. Whereas the Nespresso excels with the small strong espressos.

I cannot see the point in using the Nespresso with the Aeroccino. If you have the time and energy to waste with fresh milk, use a proper coffee maker.

I love a strong black coffee and the Nespresso machine is perfect. Coffees like the Dharkan and Kazeer make the loveliest strong coffee I have tasted.

The Tassimo is less good at espresso. However you have stated that there are only TWO espressos, your counting is not very good:
CARTE NOIRE Expresso
Gevalia Espresso
Jacobs Espresso
Jacobs Espresso Ristretto
Tassimo L'OR Espresso Delizioso
Tassimo L'OR Espresso Splendente
Tassimo Milano Espresso

Seven is it?

Tassimo website does NOT charge for delivery, as long as the order is a reasonable size (about 10 packs). Sometimes they have offers, last week I bought 7 packs for the prize of 5 and got free delivery.

I use the yellow disc to clean it every morning, or if have made a hot choc/latte etc before using for a black coffee. just cleans it out.
Wait. Just so we understand, do you not clean the nozzle piece after each use?

I just tend to drink black coffee after black coffee, so clean each morning by running thru a few times with the yellow disc in. Clean in the dishwasher the removable parts each week. Otherwise, I will clean straight after a latte or hot choc if someone else used it as don't want my coffee tasting of chocolate.

does the existing PSU support the GTX 1060?
I think the 1060 requires a separate 8 pin PCI-E power cable which the T20 lacks.

I got one of these a couple of months back for about the same price after cashback. Running MacOS Sierra very stable on it. Maybe I was unlucky but there is a bit of a whir from the fans - by comparison the Lenovo TS140 is silent (I own both).

Yes, national, saw it yesterday.
Stopped buying these combo packs, use my own fresh frothed milk and just use the machine to squirt an espresso into it.
Saves money, better non-UHT milk, pick from skim, semi, or bloater, better temperature, for me it tastes better, you can control the mix, you can measure out your own syrup for your own taste and more benefits.

Really need to get rid of my Tassimo machine, still sitting there since they changed the receipe a couple of years back. I wonder if their sales figures are still hurting from that - I certainly feel they ruined the Lattes which was my favourite drink :( Not bought any further drinks since.

This is a good price if you can stand the current recipe though, heat.

Douwe Egberts sold the Carte Noire brand to Lavazza in 2015 and are now busy selling the brand thru as their interim rights to continue to use the name are expiring. L'Or isn't a new brand on the continent and clearly is now being launched here to fill the Carte Noire gap.

That would explain why Tassimo seem to be replacing the Carte Noir pods with L'or. Makes more sense now. Thanks.

Poor quality coffee, small portions, horrible for the environment. Do yourself and the planet a favour and get a cafetiere and some filter coffee. You'll thank me later.

I have had two of these - first one went bang after about 6 months and was replaced by Bosch FOC. Replacement lasted a year or so. Hard water kills these, so you need to descale regularly. Coffee is pretty good.
The model Argos are selling varies slightly- not the same as the one posted.

I buy the Cadbury Hot Chocolate ones from ASDA at 3 for £10 unless Amazon has a deal on (I get through a LOT of these).

Just after Christmas everywhere was out of these (obviously everyone got a machine for Christmas) but over the past few weeks stocks seem to be back.
This is not really a special offer discount, as this is the permanent price in Asda. They are always 3 for £10. Includes Kenco Americano Grande and Smooth, Costa Americano, Morning Cafe, Carte Noire Petit Dejeuner Classic and Decaf, Oreo, Cadbury and English Breakfast Tea.

what kind of processor could you upgrade this in future with? Intel Xeon E3-1225 v3 or even 1275v3? Are there any BIOS updates to accept the refresh? Hard to tell from my searches...

is this better then Go proliant micrometer g7? can you do more with Dell?

hp proliant microserver

I upgraded from the HP Proliant Microserver g7 with AMD processor for the Xeon version of the T20.

I needed more horse power for plex transcoding. You can really tell the difference.

Main plus points other than that are USB3 you can put in a full size graphics card. Standard space for hard drives is 4x 3.5 and 2x 2.5 hdd but you need a sata expansion card as there is only 4 sata ports. 2x display ports Means you can directly connect to an hdmi tv without the need for expansion card.

Cons
Standard tower size.

I also find since it has the power I use it as my desktop for day to day stuff since it is on anyway and my gaming PC only turned on for gaming.

Fully windows 10 compatable I am not sure about the G7 I only ever had windows 7 on it.

Compare the processors if you have the AMD one with this Intel you should get double the power I have added the Xeon version also.

Hope this helps.

If left on 24/7, this will cost in the region of ~£32 per year to run when idle, ramping up to ~£54 when under load. This should also be factored into the equation when comparing solutions.http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cpu/68797-intel-pentium-g3220-22nm-haswell/?page=8
You might shave some cost off depending on the efficiency of the PSU.
That seems a little pessimistic - according to my power meter, my G3220 T20 is pulling a total of around 15W from the wall at idle rising to about 25W under load. Depending on which robber baron power company you're signed up with, this would probably work out somewhere in the low £20+/year region for 24/7 usage.
This is admittedly with just an SSD boot drive and a single 1TB laptop HDD, but you'd have to factor in the extra power draw of additional HDDs whatever device you were putting them in.
I suppose the point I'm getting at is that the running cost of the T20 probably wouldn't be a significant concern compared with alternative devices such as purpose-designed NAS boxes.
This always makes me chuckle as most people freak out about this energy usage but run 50W halogen spots through their home :)
The same people that have 30 minute 13Kw showers every morning and think their electric bill comes from phone chargers left turned on.
I doubt this very much, people ignorant 13 kilo-watts versus 1.3 watts, only in jest.
In this weather, I just treat the heat generated by my Server as extra heating :)
Often overlooked, people do 365 calculations whereas in reality home electronics heat up the home in cold weather so at best do 200 days calculations.

Tassimo is terrible compared to nespresso. Do yourself a favour and buy the innissia for £69 (with free £75 of nespresso vouchers). Superb cappuccinos and lattes. Aeroccino is very impressive.
That only does coffee, this has a variety of different drinks. If only Nespresso increased their drinks variety, as it's also cheaper to run as pods on nespresso are cheaper and you use fresh milk instead of a pod.
You can get compatible tea capsules and The Range sells compatible chocolate capsules, 25 in a bag for £4.99. mugpods.com also sells compatible chocolate and milkshake capsules.

Not sure if it applies to all their stock, but I had to return a Tassimo Vivy to Wilko recently as it was missing parts of it inside (the drip tray and the water tank).
It may be honoured. I read online that these things are given away free in Germany. Its not surprising as they make their money with the rather expensive pods. I have 2 Tassimos and love the Costa Americano pods , 5 pkts were £15 on Amazon with subscribe and save, more expensive now.
I ordered one when there were 58 in stock before this was posted, but I suspect it wont be honoured.

Bought another one today.

On the previous one I installed a SSD and junked the mechanical HD, installed Win 10 Pro and after a few driver downloads and updates it was good to go. I added a 750ti and 16GB RAM later.

6 months later it is silent and good enough to order more. If this next one stacks up on another task I will order 8 more for use as PCs.

Was looking at replacing a Hp micro severe 54l with one of these. I have 6x hdd and 2x ssd in my microserver. Is there anyway I can do the same in the T20?
You had that in your n54l? You could always change the case from what I've seen?
Got* yes :)
54L doing good, plus like the power consumption too and small form factor and noise.
T20 would just be upgrade for the processor really

Yeah mine has struggles on transcoding and playback on x265 has been an issue and needs more cpu.

Performing great. See post 15 above. Moving 'small' files of under a gigabyte is almost instant as the OS is anticipating what I want to do and caching the data in the extra available memory. HDD then catches up in it's own time (at ~130Mb/s) :)

How has the memory been preforming since the install?

I can't see any other option with 2 x 2r8 and 1 x 1r8 of the same capacity (3 x 4GB). Manual says that modules with the same rank number should be used together in order of highest rank number (2r8 being highest using slots with white tabs first (slots 1 & 2). This means the 1r8 (original) goes into slot 3 (first available black tabbed one), unless I've interpreted it incorrectly.
I'm not sure there would be any real-world speed difference in my setup.

Just installed mine. I received 2 x Samsung m391b5273dh0-yk0
The only technical difference I can see between these and the one that came with the T20 is that the Samsung ones are dual rank compared to single rank in the original.
My T20 came with a single 4GB module in slot 2. I expected this to be in slot 1 (memory channel A according to the manual).
Anyway, in accordance with the manual, I put the two dual rank modules in slots 1 & 2 (white tabs) and the original single rank module into slot 3.
PC booted into diagnostics and all checks completed without error. Now I have 12GB RAM and the initial difference I have noticed is a reported increase of write speed between my WD Reds: from ~100mb/s to ~130 mb/s as win 8.1 is clearly using the extra available RAM to buffer the HDD writes. BTW I use my T20 as a desktop really, providing central storage and access to files from phones, TV, laptop etc throughout the house.
Happy with the purchase so far :)

It's possible the putting that putting the original SIM in slot 3 is slowing your machine down as it maybe breaking 'dual channel' operation for the memory.

Ordered 4 boxes with the 30% discount (which worked out about £15 for some Costa boxes). Then when I added the 4th box it then gave ALL of my boxes the 15% discount rather than the 45%. This made each box about £20. Is this normal? Or has the offer expired?

For Coffee-Lovers

Coffee used to be fairly simple. If you drank it at all, it was in the form of instant coffee granules or elaborately prepared filter coffee and espressos. But things have changed. Machines like the Tassimo range from Bosch allow coffee aficionados to brew up café-style beverages whenever they want to. The range is broad, and Tassimo’s machines have varying characteristics, but this buyer’s guide should help to find the right model for you.

Tassimo Buyers Guide

Tassimo is a relatively recent innovation, having been introduced in France as recently as 2004. Originally manufactured by Kraft, then Braun, Tassimo machines are now manufactured in Eastern Europe by the home goods firm Bosch.

Nowadays, Tassimo machines are carving out a prominent place in the coffee maker market. Their success has been driven by two major factors. Firstly, they look sleek and attractive, and will fit well into contemporary kitchen designs. Secondly, they are easy to use and effective – appealing to anyone who needs good coffee in a hurry.

Tassimo: The Basics

The most important thing to know about Tassimo machines is the way they brew coffee. Instead of using filters and high pressure, the coffee is stored in pods or T-discs which are inserted into the machine. There are over 35 different flavours and styles of pod to choose from, allowing you to create anything from a simple espresso or macchiato to a rich milky latte. These pods could come from leading beverage brands like Kenco, Suchard, Jacobs, Carte Noire and Twinings, and they are freely available at UK high street retailers like Asda and Tesco.

Diversity

In the process, Tassimo machines use far less pressure than a conventional coffee maker. Generally, you would expect a filter coffee maker to apply around 19 bar of pressure, while a Tassimo machine uses only 3.3 bar – and consequently uses a lot less energy to achieve the same result. This makes Tassimo’s machines cheaper to run than normal coffee makers – but these savings are offset by the need to purchase a separate pod for every drink.

The pod system is advanced – involving Intellibrew technology that scans a barcode on each pod, before assessing how to apply pressure, how much water is required and how long the process should take.

Tassimo – Three Steps for Hot Drinks

Some critics have also suggested that there is a loss of flavour when using the Tassimo method, but Bosch disagrees. In reality, Tassimo pods brew up a high quality cup of coffee – although purists may prefer a gourmet espresso maker to suit their palates.

Tassimo’s coffee machines are competitively priced relative to other coffee makers – and discounts are always becoming available from the UK’s leading kitchenware retailers, so check them out at the HotUKDeals Tassimo pages. However, there are significant differences between the machines on offer.

The Common Features of all Tassimo Machines

As noted above, every Tassimo machine uses pods or T-discs to make their coffee. These discs contain a certain amount of ground coffee, and can be used with all kinds of Tassimo machine. You can make different drinks consecutively without needing to clean out the machine, and they do not need to be stored in the fridge, so they can be kept in a normal cupboard or next to the machine.

Hot drinks with t-discs

Users can modulate the strength of their coffee by extending the brewing time, and they can easily brew long or short coffees just by changing the time taken as well. By using a special kind of milk, and through the pressure applied by the machine, Tassimo devices also produce a layer of froth which changes depending on the type of coffee being made.

All machines also feature the Intellibrew barcode scanning system and have LCD displays to enable the user to operate them. Every model can be descaled easily, and they all have easy to remove water tanks as well. LED lights indicate when this tank needs to be refilled, if there is not enough water for the desired drink.

How to Descale a Tassimo Machine

Like all coffee machines, Tassimo devices need to be cleaned. The barcode reader needs to be kept clean, as does the water tank – both of which should extend the machine’s life considerably. Thankfully, Bosch have included the Tassimo Service Disc which automatically carries out descaling, avoiding the need to buy and use separate chemicals.

The differences often involve size, and there are technical variations as well. However, when you get down to it, every single variety of Tassimo machine will make a similar quality of coffee. Paying extra allows you to customise your drinks and cater for more people, but basic models will do the trick for most people’s needs.

Choosing Between the Different Types of Tassimo Machine

Basic Tassimo Models

Vivy, Fidelia and CharmyFor most people, basic Tassimo models like the Vivy, Amia and Caddy will include all of the required features.

The Tassimo Vivy is a compact coffee maker for everyday use. With a width of 17 cm, it is a good size for most kitchens, and can be slotted into gaps between toasters and stove tops with ease.

The Vivy uses Tassimo’s T-Disc system to brew its drinks, is operated with a simple keypad and is capable of brewing everything from chai lattes to cappuccinos. Its water tank is built into the side of the unit, with a handle that makes it easy to remove for cleaning and refilling. The machine will also flash up a notification telling the owner to run the descaling cycle – keeping everything in working order. Another intelligent feature is the adjustable platform underneath the spout, enabling the owner to use different sizes and shapes of cups.

As with all Tassimo models the Vivy produces hot drinks in a matter of seconds – one of the main selling points of the Tassimo range in general. It’s a good alternative to more complex coffee makers, and is almost as convenient as making an instant coffee. The Vivy isn't limited to coffee either, and can be used with hot chocolate, chai latte or herbal tea T-discs as well.

Another step up in size comes the Tassimo Amia. Features of the Amia include an automatic standby mode, which kicks in straight after the coffee has been brewed, saving energy. As with the Vivy, it indicates when descaling is required, has a flexible platform for your cups and is operated by a single button. The major difference between the two models is size. At 1.5 liters, the Amia has roughly twice as much water capacity as the Vivy, making it an attractive option for families and serious coffee lovers.

Other basic models include the Tassimo Suny – which is similar to the Vivy (with a capacity of 800 ml) and the Tassimo Joy, which resembles the Amia, with a 1.4 litre capacity.

More Advanced Tassimo Models

Bosch AmiaThe Tassimo Charmy is a step up in the price range, mainly due to the inclusion of a Brita Water Filter, which can be useful in areas with hard water or if you prefer filtered water for health reasons. Another higher price model is the Fidelia+, which has a much bigger capacity than other models (around 2 litres) and includes more options regarding the intensity of the coffee produced, includes a multilingual LCD display, a cup stand light and a water filter.

The Tassimo Caddy offers a slightly different coffee making experience. In thus case, the coffee is stored in pods that are attached to the side of the machine. Like the Vivy, the Caddy is a compact device that will fit into most kitchen arrangements, and it is also operated at the flick of a switch, making it convenient to use. As with all Tassimo machines, the Caddy doesn’t require a long time to warm up its water. Instead, everything is ready to go in an instant – which can be a real help for busy people who are starved of time in the morning.

The major advantage of the Caddy (which makes it slightly more expensive) is convenience. Having your coffee pods stored next to the machine means that you won’t need to reach into cupboards and open fresh packs of pods every time you want to brew up.

How Good is Tassimo Coffee Really?

For many people, the gadgetry and convenience of Tassimo machines suggests that they sacrifice quality somewhere along the line. However, the makers maintain that their devices are capable of brewing a high quality espresso which compares favourably with café-made drinks.

Usually, a very high degree of pressure is required to make a proper espresso – where all of the taste and caffeine is drawn out of the coffee grounds, resulting in a highly concentrated burst of flavour. Tassimo doesn’t use such high pressure, but Bosch claim that their emulsifying technology has the same effect. Instead of high pressure, Tassimo machines rely on high velocity, which creates a concentrated coffee beverage, with a layer of crema on top – just like an authentic espresso.

Why Choose Tassimo Over Other Coffee Makers?

FideliaIf you are serious about your coffee, Tassimo machines might not be the right choice, but for most people they offer a good blend of convenience and quality. There is a wide range of drinks on the market, all of them are easy to prepare and you can guarantee a reliable result from the Intellibrew system.

The one-touch brewing system is intuitive and fast, allowing novices to master coffee brewing in no time. Beginners can make quite complex coffees like cappuccinos and macchiatos with very little work. Maintenance is partly automated as well, which helps users to keep their machines in good working order for a long time. They are also quiet to run, where other machines can hiss and rumble, and they brew very quickly.

In all of these ways, Tassimo offers something approaching a coffee shop experience in your own home. Other machines may be larger (though a 2 litre Tassimo should serve families well). They may also brew stronger espressos, but for normal coffee drinkers, a Tassimo is ideal.
