Tassimo Suprema Hot Beverage Machine by Bosch
Best of The Pack!
I have owned two Keurig, one Breville (licensed by Keurig), a Starbucks Vermismo and finally the Tassimo T45. Let's cut to the chase, the T45 does the best job of providing a quality cup of coffee, hands down, over all the rest. The two Keurigs and the Breville all broke down and were unrepairable. The Vermismo cost much more and does not even come close to the quality of the Tassimo product. If you love good coffee, and no gues work performance, you'll love the Tassimo machine. The coffee selection isn't as great as Keurig machines, but the coffee is a whole lot better! The Vermisimo has function problems. It is difficult to load, often dropping the coffee pod in the central trash. You then have to fish it out and try again. There are many other annoying problems, but among the most annoying is the highest priced coffee. Worst selection and mediocre quality. Get a Tassimo T45 and be happy with your smart choice.

So far so good! Good Job Tassimo!
I was torn between the tassimo and the keurig.
It seemed that I really wanted the tassimo all along but I was afraid to try something new. Over the holidays I went to a local store and couln't believe how many keurig machines and products were out there. The tassimo section was hidden and not nearly on "display". I walked out empty handed but decided to ask one of the cashiers what he would buy. He said its all about what kind of coffee drinker you are but that he had not seen many returns from customers buying tassimo. They seemed to be happy with it, so I asked him why all the keurig stuff all over their store, his answer simply "Keurig provides us with all this stuff, they want us to display heavily" so its all a marketing ploy. While it took some time to get the machine up and running (you have to clean the filter, run the water etc) once my husband & I tried our first cup of espresso on this machine WE WERE SOLD. No way I would trade for a keurig and although the selection is not as good as the keurig, don't fall for the hype. This machine is as good (and in my opinion better) than then keurig. Go get one, don't hesitate.

Switching from the "K" brand
I bought this brewer for my husband for Christmas after he went to our local coffee house one day and said he got a latte from there and it sucked. We already had a "K" brewer that we had for over two years and worked well for the most part. Low and behold on Christmas Day the other brewer breaks and we had to drink our Starbucks ground coffee using the French press until we opened presents. So glad we have this brewer now. I like flavored coffees with flavored creamers, but I am more of a specialty drink person and love my mochas and chai lattes. I also like how this brewer takes up less counter space than the "other" one. I was planning on keeping the "other" brewer because we still have cups, but after troubleshooting and calling the customer service number, the agent declared the other brewer as "beyond repair". They offered us a "fantastic" deal on a duplicate brewer which really wasn't that fantastic at all. Everything I've had from the Tassimo brewer has tasted great. I'm still getting used to not being able to customize my cup size at the start of brewing, but it's no biggie. The plain coffees taste great and I've also had the chai latte and peppermint latte. This brewer really has something for everyone. My mom who doesn't drink coffee loved the chai latte. The only thing I miss is having the refillable cup to put my own grounds in. That's the reason why I gave this brewer a "Good" instead of "excellent" rating on versatility, but if we want to use our own grounds, we can just use the French press.

Tassimo makes a Great cup of Coffee!
I love the Tassimo - it makes a great cup of coffee and also has the option for expresso drinks. I tried the Keurig and really disliked the weak coffee. Tassimo is a much better system and is very easy to use. There needs to be a better coffee selection, though.
