BOSCH Tassimo T20 (TAS2001GB) Hot Drink Maker in White - £49 @ Morrisons

Found 18th Nov 2011
I'm aware that this has been posted before but you are going back a few months and the deals have been expired.

Was in Morrisons last night doing the weekly shop and saw this, which is handy, as we have just got back from Rome drinking lots of espressos, and my other half has decided she wants a coffee machine for Christmas! Whether this lives up to Italian standards is another matter...

Anyway, thought it would be useful to post with it coming up to Christmas. Can't find it this price anywhere else - £69.99 on Amazon.

As I understand it, you also get £20 to spend from the Tassimo online shop when you register the product.

They are alright, the discs are a bit pricey though.

Got one for £39.99 from currys when the last deal was on. You get a £20 tassimo voucher that has to be spent at the online tassimo store (minimum order is £35 i think from memory)

while you were in morrisons i hope you used the available vouchers to get free pack of the new cadburys hot choc as well. we got our monday and they are very nice for hot choclate (not powdery and watery likesome can be

I have a Tassimo. Bought it over 5 years ago. Still good as new.

But now redundant, as the pods are 3 times the price of the pods I use in my espresso machine.

Tassimo makes good-tasting coffee. But the aroma, crema & flavour of coffee from my espresso machine is superior. At a third of the price per pod, it's a no-brainer.

Tassimo pods are roughly 25p each. Say 2 cups a day x 365 = £182 a year. Pricy!

Click here for the £35 Which? 'Best Buy' espresso machine I now use instead of the Tassimo.

It's still available for £35 from Argos, but most branches are OOS, so check availability if you're interested.

I agree this is a great price for what looks like a good machine but I've checked (was actually thinking of maybe getting that one and returning the Tassimo) and there is just no stock to be found anywhere. Well, not near me anyway!

If any of you happen to live around the west midlands, and know anyone who has access to the cadbury's STAFF shop, then the pods for tassimo are 16 for 25p.

Yep, you read right. A pack of 16 pods for 25p.

It made me buy a machine! Now that is hot (if a little limited).

i have a freind who can access that cadbury shop i will ask her about the pods

This is a good machine. But we never use ours after we invested in a Nespresso machine.

Still, you can't get a Nespresso for £49.99! This is a good deal, but I would recommend trying the Nespresso before you invest

Good deal.
Its a shame they stopped doing the Starbucks pods. They were by far the best of the Tassimo coffee pods.

Was bought a Tassimo for Christmas last year and still use it regularly. It's a brilliant bit of kit and this is a good price.

I agree, Nespresso have the best quality coffee, and 19 bar pressure machines. I think Tassimo have 3 bars of pressure! You can get a Nespresso Essenza for about £65 or so.

Pressure smessure.

Not if you want a decent crema and proper cup of coffee. The Tasimo just doesn't compare. Though the OP did find a good price if you do want this for the appeal of hot choc etc.

I have a tassimo and bought it for the reason stated in post 7.

I just thought pressure smessure sounded quite good. I don't want one of those hukd fights that unnecessarily prolonges the thread for five pages.

So, as i said...

Pressure smessure!

The pressure is irrelevent on a tassimo. The pod contents are already processed, part of the reason for the high price + they are a money making scam in general.

Bargain. I got the T65 last year and I still love mine, although I was disappointed that the Starbucks discs were discontinued. Fortunately my parents in Canada had stockpiled quite a few so that's keeping me going for now.

Regarding cost, the discs can be a bit pricey but if you're a regular coffee drinker this probably won't be for you (or at least, you won't be using it for all your coffee), I use mine when I just want a bit of a 'treat' every couple of daysand for that it does the job very well.

I don't know about the T20, but mine came with a code which, when redeemed on the Tassimo website, gives you a £20 voucher to use on their online store.

The cappucinos and lattes are good from this, I would probably recommend avoiding the 'speciality' tiramisu/creme brule ones though, they're quite nice but you only get a tiny drink from them, they're not worth the money.

Not sure how people are saying the pods are 25p each, they are actually 50p each £4 a pack, 8 drinks in a pack.

Hot choc takes 2 pods for example as does any drink that needs milk.


,,,And to the nespresso people (generally people who owned a tassimo 5 years ago and moved on in life to "better" things)...You're still behind the curve. A "proper" coffee machine will set you back £500-ish and you will recoup your investment in a couple of years, you will also discover that coffee tree fruit isn't a "pod".

I think it's a great price. I do realise proper coffee machines are better value but I'd pay 30p a go to have a machine make the drink of my choice with an half asleep button press.

Hold on a minute, back up.

Did you say the hot chocolate requires two pods? How does that work?

Is this the reason my hot chocolate was tasting rancid?

The pods nespresso use has the top 1% of fresh ground coffee in the world. It's literlly like you've ground the beans yourself, they're hermetically sealed so it's as fresh as if you've done it there and then withought the hassle or mess of actually doing it! I wouldn't be put off by the fact they use 'pods'.

#19 - Depends whether it's an 8 or 16 pack.

I stockpiled at Cadburys shop for the next year or so, bargain if you know someone with access

The curve some people are after isn't taste, it's convenience. We got rid of our 'proper' coffee machine as it was a pain in terms of upkeep/cleaning meaning it never got used. We replaced it with a Tassimo last year and haven't looked back. And most coffees do work out about 20-25p a pod as you get 16 in a pack. It's the lattes/hot chocolates which work out more expensive due to needing 2 pods.

I am quite a big coffee drinker as is my partner and we both love it!

It has ruined us for places like Cafe Nero! We can make a decent Cappuccino at home for about 30p and it tastes ten times better what you get in there!

The capsule prices are between 28p and 33p, so not massively expensive.

I like the Indriya coffee best myself

Done, thanks for that!

I only drink coffee if is has been handled by an Italian, and if the coffee beans have been shaken in the hand of a rich white man in a white suit in a Columbian forest.

I also make an annoying 'ahhh' sound after I have tasted it as I am a precious snob too.

Hot deal. Been using Tassimo for a year and love it. You can get the pods cheaper on bulk of amazon (most of the coffee sets me back about 18p a cup, the hot chocolate is dearer granted).

I am sure most of the 'aficionados' on here could not pass a blind trial.

I'm not a big fan of the cappuccinos or the lattes. Must be the milk pods (although the hot chocs are nice). They should release a new speciality strong coffee as the Starbucks was superb.
If you still get the £20 voucher, I'd recommend the Cafe HAG decaff. You can't buy it off the shelf in the UK, only online. I'm not really into decaff but it makes a lovely cup of coffee.

Had a Tassimo that expired, now have cheap Argos Espresso machine. Espresso machine makes much better coffee for less money with Aldi pods and easy to use/clean.
Having said that it's a good price for a Tassimo.

We've gone from a Dolce Gusto, to a Tassimo and finally settled on a Nespresso. It's brilliant.

Have to agree. Nespresso is an excellent pod system

Cold from me. Literally.

I've been through three of these and a T65 trying to find one that actually makes a drink hot enough to stay warm for more than 30 seconds. Completely useless IMO. Shocking bit of kit - And yes, I do understand that coffee is not meant to be boiling hot etc, we used cooking probes to measure coffee temp and rarely got over 65 degrees on every unit we tried. It's just not hot enough for me....

HATE THESE MACHINES!!! Grrr.....!! Cr*p and cold coffee at a premium, what's all that about?

My opinion and I stick by it! COLD
