Tassimo Beverage Maker Giveaway

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Tassimo.

BlogHer Reviewer
Imagine the fun and excitement of having your own hot beverage maker right in the comfort of your own home?

I recently became the proud owner of just such a machine, the Bosch Tassimo beverage maker, thanks to Blogher and Tassimo. I ripped into the box, set it all up in about 30 minutes and tried it out pronto. I made myself a cappuccino and my hubby a regular coffee and we have also tried the hot chocolate.IMG_7893

The machine was easy to set up and after reading the directions, it was ready to go.IMG_7894

One of the pluses with this machine is that it has a built-in filter system to filter your water every time you make a cup.  All you do is fill this reservoir with water and your Tassimo machine is ready to serve a hot beverage. IMG_7895

They were also generous and sent a large variety of the T-discs that go in this machine, so there are various flavors to choose from.IMG_7896

One of the neatest things about these beverage machines are the T-discs that come with them. There are several flavors to choose from, anywhere from chai tea, cappuccino, espresso, hot chocolate, as well as regular coffee.IMG_7897

The T-discs also have the milk that goes with these specialty drinks, so you can pop the main one in, then take that out and pop in the milk disc, so your drink is made to order. Fresh and delicious!

I always thought having one of these machines around the house would be loads of fun and I was right. It is! We are having a party on Friday night and I can’t wait to introduce this fun gadget to our guests, when they will be able to order up a special drink with dessert. What a fun way to celebrate the Holidays with family and friends. Easy, delicious, hot beverages at your fingertips.

A unique home brewing system, TASSIMO quickly makes a wide variety of hot beverages from signature brands with the push of a button.

Doesn’t get any easier than that!

And now for the really great news!  One of YOU will win a Tassimo beverage maker too.

(I was given a Tassimo machine of my own to try out and keep, but my opinion of how this machine works and how I am enjoying using it is entirely my own.  This is also a compensated review, but just because I’m getting paid to do the review doesn’t mean my opinion can be bought.  I will only post my true opinion of anything I review.)

    Thanks, Rhoda for the review. I have wondered about how well a single-serve beverage maker works and if it is practical. Now I know I want one!

    P.S. Love your site — just found a link to it and I will be a “regular”.

  69. My favorite hot beverage is a classic, a nice big cup of steamy hot chocolate with a white chocolate peppermint stick to stir around and add just the right amount of “holiday” to my hot cocoa. I make white chocolate dipped peppermint sticks every year to gift to friends and neighbors but I ALWAYS keep a few for my greedy little self.

  70. Thalla-Marie says:

    Tammy M

  78. Hi Rhoda!
    I’d love to have one of these as my hubby and I are coffee fiends! 🙂 Would love to be able to make a latte easily at home. My faves are mochas and drinks with caramel… mmmmm! 🙂

  79. Dani McGarry says:

    I love peppermint mochas (especially this time of year!) Thanks!

  80. When I really want a good cup of something hot, it is usually just a good cup of brewed coffee with a bit of half and half.
    I just can’t escape my comfort zone.

  81. This machine would be amazing – we have a baby on the way in just a few weeks and I can already imagine how easy this would be for my husband to make himself just a cup of coffee as opposed to an entire pot!
    My favorite hot beverage has to be either flavored coffee, flavored hot chocolate or (see a pattern?) flavored chai tea! I love them all and can’t decide between just one!

  83. Dani McGarry says:

    I also tweeted about this giveaway @danimcgarry

  91. Chai tea lattes are one of my favorites! This machine would be a dream! Thanks for the chance to win one! I’ll lift my next latte in your honor! 🙂 You can see my love for coffee in my email address, javagrass@sbcglobal.net!!!

  92. I want one of these SO BAD!!! I think all the beverages sounds fantastic but I think my favorite would be a chai tea latte!

  97. Coffee …Coffee …I love Coffee!! bridgitgatlin@yahoo.com

  100. I would love to try the chai tea latte! I love those from Starbucks but haven’t been by lately.

  101. Oh, no dessert is complete without a hot cup of coffee. Usually, just a cup of hot, black smooth coffee does it for me, but with a machine like this, I would be adding a mocha latte to my list!

  102. I would absolutely love this! My sis-in-law has one. I enjoy the European Milka chocolate flavor.

  103. texasaggiemom says:

    Would love a pumpkin spice latte right about now! Thank you for the giveaway!

  115. Hot chocolate, hot tea and coffee to keep up with my 10 month old!!! Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

  116. I’ve looked at these but the prices keep me from buying one. It would be well used and well loved at our home. Although my favorite is a warm frothy cup of cappuccino, I know my munchkins would be in heaven standing in line for a hot chocolate, somthing they can’t get enough of during these cold months and they might actually clean their rooms in exchange for one. Oh that sounds like a Christmas present to me!!! Count me in for this giveaway and thanks for offering up such neat stuff.

  117. ohhh, this would be GREAT to have! what a nice giveaway!

  118. it would be GREAT to be able to have different options at the drop of a hat, rather than alternating coffee choices by the pot 🙂

    My favorite hot chocolate has always been the one I mix up myself!


  137. What a fun machine to own! I think I would try the Chai first. And then the hot chocolate. I don’t know what my favorite would be. With all the selections, I’m sure I would come up with a new favorite!

  138. We had one of these in my old office; I always LOVED making mochas with them–using the coffee and milk, but putting a little (sugar-free) chocolate syrup in the bottom of the cup to make it a mocha. Yum! I would love to have one of my very own.


  139. Coffee! Any kind…I’m a sucker for hot beverages!

  140. I’d LOVE to win this! 🙂

  141. Mmmmm! I’m thinking Chai Lattes in my pajamas! Heavenly!

On the afternoons I do not work I stop by Starbucks and get myself a Skinny Cinnaman Dolche Latte. Right now I am enjoying a home brewed flavored coffee called SnickerDoodle. I would put this machine to great use if I won it. Congratulations on 5000 subscribers! You deserve it. HOPE I WIN THIS CONTEST! Nancy from OHIO

  149. Wow, what a fab giveaway! If I had to narrow it down to one, I would say my favorite hot beverage is cappuccino, but I see Verona from Starbucks peeking out in that picture. Let’s see, I’ll stick with the cappuccino.

  195. One of the greatest pleasures I have every morning is my first cup of coffee of the day. I depend on a bit of a pick me up in the afternoon, around 3:30 or 4:00 and I can’t even imagine what a treat it would be to have access to so many different beverages! I would bring this to school and the staff would think a coffee shop had moved into the teacher’s room. What a wonderful perk for the hard working staff.

  197. Oh, definitely a cappuccino. Thanks for the opportunity! I’ve really wanted one of these.

    I’ve actually been thinking of adding this great beverage maker to my Christmas Wish List but now I think I’ll wait to see if I’m the lucky winner. Hubby doesn’t drink tea or coffee so being able to make just one cup for me would be great. I think the Starbucks coffee would be my first choice to try but I would also like all the hot chocolate drinks too. Thanks for the chance! Sheila

  437. oh cappuccino! One of my true loves. 😉

  438. Oh it all sounds so good!! I’d love to try all the drinks.

  439. What a great idea–one machine that makes all hot drinks and has it’s own water filter too! Currently I’m wedging my coffee pot under the water dispenser in the fridge door and it always makes a mess. My favorite coffee is cinnamon vanilla flavored.

  440. My favorite hot drink is Hot Apple Cider with red hots and cinnamon sticks. The flavor of the red hots makes this the most wonderful hot drink. I run the cider thru my coffee pot and add the red hots and cinnamon in the carafe.

  441. Nothing tops a mocha frappucino.

  442. I think the chai latte sounds awfully good! Especially in this cold weather!

  443. My favorite hot beverage is coffee
