Tassimo Model Comparison: Tassimo TA 1400 Premium Hot Beverage System vs. Tassimo TA 1200 Hot Beverage System


Often there are several models of a single serve coffee machine like the Tassimo and it can make it difficult for you to decide which model to pick given the price and features. Recently, Tassimo introduced the Tassimo Hot Beverage System or TA1200 at...

Yeah - getting confused yet? Well, the big differences are where they are sold, the water tank size, and a few gold accents on the Premium Tassimo. See the details and judge for yourself. We've been testing the two machines side by side, and we can't...

I love mine


I did not buy mine refurbished, and Tassimo has subcontracted out the manufacturing to Bosch instead of Braun. Where Keurig was made by the coffee maker to sell green mountain coffee (A la razor blade and handle marketing model)- Tassimo is designed...

IMHO makes better coffee than Keurig ; Adjustable amount of added water to make stronger or weaker ; Makes great specialty drinks with Hot Chocolate and Latte/Cappuccino discs available ; 6 or more varieties of Starbucks and A few Seattle's best...

Less availability of the Discs- Bed Bath Beyond, Some Target stores and on line ; Does not have a way to use your own coffee ( But can do almost instant Hot water) ; Most of these types have a higher cost per cup

CoffeeGeek - Braun Tassimo Capsule Brewer - Lisa M's Review


NOTE to all you competent Braun and Proctor and Gamble (the parent company) customer service representatives… this situation is surely a result of company policy and you must be embarrassed by the things you are forced to say to customers.

It was nice looking and easy to use while it lasted

BRAUN CUSTOMER SERVICE (Proctor and Gamble is the parent company)

CoffeeGeek - Braun Tassimo Capsule Brewer - Nancy C Lea's Review


I really am sorry I bought this. I banished it to my workshop, where I will use it until I run out of t-discs then will probably give it away. I replaced it in the house with a Keurig, which is HUGELY better for this kind of machine! It's hard to...

makes a nice cup of coffee

Expensive, proprietary "T-Discs" no option for using your own. Very hard to clean. Some of the t-discs "explode" and create a nasty, even dangerous mess. The hot-chocolate and "latte" options are disappointing. (and messy)

I purchased a Tassimo beverage system about 6 months ago. It stopped working one morning almost two months ago. I contacted the Tassimo service center and was told that they would send a shipping label for me to return my beverage system for repair or ...

Avoid this product


After reading all of the reviews I was so excited to try this machine. We have had a Senseo single cup for about 3 years and love it. (We use Java Podz for a strong, European cup of Java.) My daughter is heading off to college and is taking the ...

appearance, disc variety and availability

Abysmal customer service, high percentage of units malfunction, mediocre coffee, milk product plastic tasting
