Normally as bloggers, you get Christmas presents like digital cameras, external hard drives, cool usb sticks, and other electronic gadgets. But no one really seems to think that as bloggers a lot of us run on Coffee as our fuel. Well, one of our friend Lara Kulpa (@larakulpa) from Tassimo decided to send me the BEST Christmas Present that we have ever received from a company. After exchanging some emails with the thank yous and such, we were notified that we can give one of these away to 1 lucky reader (U.S Residents Only – Sorry).
So what the heck is a Tassimo T20 Brewbot?
At first, we thought it would look something like this:
Well don’t blame us! The name is Brewbot, so as geeky as we are that was an accurate representation. But it did not look like that when we opened the box. Rather it was a very cool little Home Brewing System like this:
In short, Tassimo is a pod-based hot drink maker because it can make Regular Coffee, Cappuccino, Latte, Hot Chocolate, Chai Tea etc. Basically how it works is that you enter a T-Disc, a cute name for pods, and press the big button. This machine simply reads the bar-code and knows what to make. The ease of use of Tassimo is probably the best part about this machine. Because all you do is insert the T-Disc, and press go. Granted that you have already filled up water in the tank, you should have your cup of hot drink in about a minute (that’s fast). Tassimo folks sent us two sample packages out of which one was a Starbucks Cappuccino. The quality of the coffee was just as good as the one that you get at store, and if you look at the price compared to the store, it is significantly cheaper. Well at least the first 8 cups were free, but you can get a cup of Starbucks cappuccino for roughly $1.28, or you can get a generic cappucino that is pretty good itself for $0.75 / disc. Yup, if you are a hopeless Starbucks addict like us, you have a new expense. (P.S. We wish Santa sends us more Starbucks Cappuccino Primo Discs)…. Anyone that does sent us these discs will get a Twitter mention from our account (DM us for address)
The second best part about Tassimo is it’s ability to clean itself. They provide a cleaning disc that has it’s own barcode (this one is reusable), and the machine will automatically rinse itself with hot water and sterilize itself. No Mess, No nothing. Its a plug and play game.
