Tassimo, Tassimo, Tassimo. How I love thee.

January 10th, 2011

morning moments

You all know I’m a die-hard coffee drinker, right? I love coffee. I would even be so bold as to say I am a coffee maven. I’ve tasted many many many coffees in my life and I live to tell the tale.

There are many different ways to make coffee. I’ve done drip. I’m over that. Too messy, too slow. I’ve had an espresso machine. It rocked but then broke two years later because we used it too much. I LOVE LOVE LOVE French press coffee and am still a huge fan. But then I met my latest love, The Tassimo T20.

Oh, Tassimo, you’ve made a fool out of me.

I was bound and determined not to fall for Tassimo. I thought any coffee maker that required a factory-made pod was for the birds. I don’t need to be dependent on some big company to help me get coffee, right? How hard is it to make coffee? It’s bad enough I have to spend a fortune on ink cartridges for my printer, I don’t need more packaging in my life!

Then someone offered me a free Tassimo T20 in exchange for a review and I fell for it. I thought it would be a fun machine to break out for parties. I thought I’d use it for a week, give it a fair review and then go back to my zen love for the French Press. Man, am I a loser. I break this thing out three times a day!!! I love the Tassimo!!!

I might need a Tassimo intervention 7 Days, Day 1: I spy Christmas

I fell hard. I didn’t want to, I really didn’t, but here I am a month later stalking all the big-box stores for a deal on those blasted t-discs. They are that good. They must put crack in them! But let me clarify that not all the discs are that good. I don’t really care for the Gevalia discs at all. Starbucks, however has got my tastebuds dialed right in.

all steamed up

Look at those beautiful layers of crema and espresso mixing so deliciously…I had to buy more clear glass cups just so I could appreciate it more. I had some on hand but one broke in the dishwasher and it was a tragedy! Good thing clear glass cups are pretty cheap!

The Cappuccino Primo creamer with Espresso Roast is DELICIOUS!!! I thought maybe it was packed with fat or something that is programming my brain to want more but they’re only 60 calories so really, they’re a better bet than a skinny latte. I don’t even go to Starbucks anymore. I’m sure they thought they pulled a fast one on me making me buy these t-discs all the time but they’ve seriously lost a cafe customer. Cha-ching.

the shizzle

So that’s that. I love this little machine and I have one to give away to you!!! Woo hoo! It’s your lucky day!


I wish I could rig this contest and give it away to a friend or family member but I have to keep it fair. Comment below and I will randomly pick one lucky reader next Monday before midnight to receive their own Tassimo T20. I’m so sorry, Tassimo will only mail within the US though so if you’re from another country I am feeling very very sad for you. One of these days though I’m going to post a contest just for you, I promise!

The rest of you, crazy Americans, have at it! I’m just warning you though, it’s addictive! Be careful what you wish for!

P.S. I received this Tassimo brewer from Tassimo to review at no cost to me and all opinions expressed above are my own!

  1. Susan Says:

    Oh man I’m dying for one of these! I’ve always been intrigued by these things but never taken the plunge.

  2. beyond Says:

    it looks very small too, which is good. this machine looks like it’s right up my alley… fingers crossed.

  3. Lisa Says:

    Oh wow, that coffee looks delicious! I would love one of these!

  4. Tracy Says:

    I love the commercials and I’m dying to try one. I love the idea of my husband and I each getting the flavor/style of coffee we each like every morning. I love flavored (hazelnut is my FAVE) and my husband abhors it. So…. I never get flavored and he never gets french roast that he adores. The Tassimo would solve that problem because we’d each get what we want. AND I’d stop wasting so much coffee. I make a bunch so it’ll be there if we want it in the morning before work, but most days we throw away 1/3 of the pot.

  5. Mary O Says:

    I’ve never tried coffee from a Tassimo… I’m sure I would love it too!

  6. Sarah Says:

    That looks amazing… I know someone who would LOVE it, ,so if I win, I’m giving it to her. Thanks Brenda!

  7. Kathy Says:

    Looks wonderful! I want to win it so I can try it too.

  8. Samantha Says:

    Never commented before, but the coffee drew me in! Looks delicious!! Would love to try it :)

  9. AbbieBabble Says:

    Now, this is a giveaway I’m delurking to enter!

  10. Caroline Says:

    Oh, I would love to have this! Thanks for the chance!

  11. Amanda Brown Says:

    I want it!! It took three babies to make a coffee drinker out of me, but the sleep deprivation finally won out and I need my brew every day to make it through!!

  12. Elda @ Peace-inthe-Storm Says:

    OOOOH I want one! I am not a morning person but do love the smell and taste of a delicious cup of coffee. Maybe if I WIN this I can finally get my butt out of bed early enough (with the help of a cup of coffee) to do my daily exercise! LOL

  13. Cindy G Says:

    Love my coffee, would love to win this.

  14. Emily Says:

    Seems like such a great thing to have at a party or for overnight guests. I’d love one!

  15. Meagan Says:

    I’ve always wondered if the Tassimo was worth buying because of constantly having to buy more pods, but your review has me convinced. And, if it’s free? All the better!

  16. Felix Says:

    I was never a coffee drinker before but have recently taken to the instant peppermint lattes and seem to be addicted and ready to up my coffee game…bring on the real coffee :)

  17. Leslie Says:

    That coffee looks so good!! And the machine is so small and perfect for my petite house. Fingers crossed!

  18. aunt kathy Says:

    I would love to try one of these things!

  19. kb Says:

    Hmm, I have to admit that I think the way you did before this machine, so now I HAVE to try it.

  20. kj Says:

    I didn’t start drinking coffee until after I stopped nursing my twins. Now I must.have.coffee. Would love to win this! Thanks for offering it!

  21. aunt kathy Says:

    Send mine to Gramma!

  22. Linda Stewart Says:

    I’m not a huge “coffee” fan but I love me some cappuccino. I have yet to find a cappuccino flavor that I don’t like … and Lattes .. OH MY GRANNY they just don’t get any better. The fact that I can have my very own cappuccino at home using the Tassimo is enough to perk my interest.

  23. Momsy Says:

    You make this sound irresistible! Fingers crossed!

  24. Jessica Says:

    I love the concept of the Tassimo, plus the machine itself is pretty darn cute! Thanks for the opportunity, I would love to win one! :)

  25. Keri Jackson Says:

    I have wanted one of these! I am the only coffee drinker in my house and the drip maker is a pain! I frequent Starbucks, so I imagine this would end up saving me in the long run?

  26. anne Says:

    i’d love one! i love coffee and spend way too much at starbucks as it is. :)

  27. Emily Says:

    Who knew they made those yummy kinds of coffee in the packets? I thought it was just plain black grounds! I would love to try this!

  28. Jodie Says:

    I would love to try Tassimo…. I am a huge Coffee Fan & am always looking for new things to try! Thank you for this opportunity.

    xoxox ~Jodie

  29. Bex Says:

    OHHHH man. I would absolutely die of happy. *enter!* *enter!* *enter!* :D We don’t have a Starbucks around here (closest one is 45 minutes away) & it would MAKE MY DAY.

  30. Sarah Says:

    I’m a tea drinker but my husband has had his eye on the Keurig, so I’m sure he’d love this!

  31. Mom24@4evermom Says:

    I would love this!

  32. CC Says:

    We don’t even have a Starbucks. Just some little drive-thru shops and a Peet’s coffee in the grocery store.

    It’s a good thing I know how to make my own lattes. SprKing of, maybe one will make me feel better, with a few pb cookies if there are any left.

  33. susie Says:

    OOOOH! My sister got one last year for Christmas from a very generous friend, and I have coveted it ever since. I’m a hardcore coffee lover, and I thought I wouldn’t like those little discs, but BOY was I wrong. YUM!

    I never win giveaways, but I figure it can’t hurt to throw my hat in the ring.

    Thanks for running this! :)

  34. Manda Says:

    All right I’m convinced. I have to try it now!! Yum!!

  35. Rae (SmockLady) Says:

    Ok, I’ll bite, I mean drink to that. *crosses fingers for random generator to lurve me big*

  36. Golden Says:

    oh man. slay me now. I have room for that right on my counter.

  37. Yara Says:

    I am drooling over this thing…

  38. Chen Says:

    I’ve not had coffee yet today and my mouth is watering just looking at your pictures! My friend has one and you’re right, the coffee is YUM! What a great giveaway!

  39. Jo Says:

    This is sooo awesome! Nomnomnom.

  40. Hope Says:

    I’d love to win this! I didn’t have time to make coffee this morning (you aren’t kidding about drip being too slow!), so I’m swooning over that last photo.

  41. The Chatty Housewife Says:

    Oh me oh my, that coffee with all it’s beautiful layers looks so delicious. If I win I will be emailing you for a flavor list of your favorites and not-so-favorites.

  42. Andrea Says:

    ooooh….my kind of contest! I would love to win this one :)

  43. jlee Says:

    skeptic also. if i won one, i’d give it a shot too. :)

  44. Stavroula Says:

    Mmmm… would love to have such yummy coffee in the office!

  45. Penny Says:

    This would make my husband so happy. I am not a coffee drinker. But he is and he would love love this!

  46. Anne Says:

    Duuude. This is so what I need. I always depend on the hubby to make my coffee for me (why? because he always does it so much better than I do) and when he doesn’t I am at a loss. Pick me!

  47. Rebecca Says:

    for the Cappuccino Primo creamer with Espresso Roast, I’m willing to try. :)

  48. Amy Says:

    Ooh! Me!! Me!!!!!!

  49. Kitty M Says:

    Amazing pics!! I so want one! I drank instant coffee this morning…my machine died & I’m too cheap to replace it :(

  50. Milissa Says:

    Well, I have to admit, I am not a coffee drinker. Actually, I don’t even like taste of anything that remotely has a coffee flavor in it. But….my husband on the otherhand; he loves his coffee! His old coffeemaker broke and this would be perfect for him!

  51. Anne Says:

    My boyfriend has recently become obsessed with fancy coffee beverages and has been less than thrilled with our normal morning brew. I would really rather he not spend our entire life savings at Starbucks, so this would be great for us! Yum yum yum.

  52. Jaynette Says:

    This sure would solve the problem we have. The old man gets up so early that by the time I get to the coffee the machine has turned off and I have to micro wave my cup.
    Do the make a good mocha?

  53. Stacey Says:

    Aw, I’d LOVE to win one of these!! I’ve been saving for one for what seems like forever!!!! This would help my husband (who works at 3:45 in the morning!) have a great start to a long, hard day!!!! Pick me :)

  54. JennyMaria Says:

    I have spent way too much money at my local Starbucks lately so this would be a godsend … lovely review and so glad you’re liking it! :)

  55. Cylithria Says:

    Ooooh, intriguiginglittle machine! I’d love to try it! But I do love my Aerobe Aeropress so I bet this would be interesting to try since you love your French press, and yet loved this too!

  56. angela Says:

    This would be interesting to try. It looks neat. And if you are giving up going to Starbucks….that says alot :)

  57. Sarah Lim Says:

    My husband would love that. So would I, then I wouldn’t have to deal with his mess from the other coffee maker.

  58. mandy Says:

    Oh…..coffee…..I would probably fall for it as hard as you did. Yes, please!!

  59. Amy Says:

    I was dying for someone real to review this machine after all the publicity. Glad to know what you think of it! :)

  60. Katie Says:

    I have wanted one of these for a while.. So really your post about how much you love yours is painful to my pitiful non-tassimo existence. haha :D Between my husband and I, we would probably go broke buying all the lil cartridges but it would be sooo worth it. :)

    and since I never win anything I just wanted to take yet another chance to tell you that I’m glad you are getting on your feet out in the sticks and life is shaping up good.. I know there are lots of hard times you aren’t sharing with us but just know we’re all supporting you and praying for your happiness. You are a good person and deserve that (AND some good yummy coffee but you’ve already got that covered lol) :D

  61. s Says:

    I’ve been pining for one of these!

  62. Joy Says:

    I’d love to try out one of these things. It looks like great coffee and anything that can keep my out of Starbucks for more than a few days would be awesome!

  63. pinky Says:

    Sign me up – the drinks the Tassimo can make are the closest thing to having an actual Starbucks in your house, which is a dream of mine :-)

  64. Annmarie Says:

    I’ve never tasted one of these but now you have me dying to try it! I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  65. Christine Says:

    I love coffee. That would be so fun to try!

  66. Tressa Hoover Says:

    Brenda! How DO you get these “review” gigs? Please let me know! I’d love to “review” some wonderful vacation resort or even an airline or two! Home on snow day #2 with my lovely 6 makes this wish even more pressing! Cheers to you and your new start…your Tassimo is the perfect way to begin anew!

    Tressa (an Actually cousin!)

  67. Sharon F Says:

    I would love to win this!

  68. Amy B Says:

    Wow, sometimes it would be awesome to have Starbucks at home!

  69. missMaegan Says:

    This would make winter a whole lot warmer!!

  70. isaida Says:

    Mmmmm….I’m a coffeholic and this would be great!

  71. Julia Says:

    Ooohhh looks yummy and warm and home-y. Just what I need on this chilly January afternoon!

  72. Jennifer Says:

    Oh I would would love one of these! I am the only one who drinks coffee in our house and I end up throwing away coffee on the days I don’t get to go back for a 2nd cup. I’d love to be able to brew one at a time and have it be fresh if I go back for another! :)

  73. Daisy Says:

    Pick me, pick me, pick me! I want one of these sooo bad! I was at a friends house not to long ago and they made me a cup… soooo yummy! SAJ I love love love your blog. I come to your blog a lot. I like your website so much that I put it on my blogroll for others to enjoy. Actually I would be more flattered to be added to your blogroll than to win this coffee machine!

  74. Susie Sunshine Says:

    YES PLEASE!!!!!!

  75. Navigating the Mothership Says:

    Ooh, that looks fabulous.

  76. Louise Says:

    MMMMMMMM….coffee. At the push of a button. Yes, please- pick me! Pick me!

  77. Sue Says:

    I love coffee. I want some coffee. I would live on coffee if not for the jitters after several cups :)

  78. Nicole Says:

    oo… pick me, pick me!

  79. Holly Says:

    Oooh, I want one! That coffee looks delish!

  80. Courtney Says:

    Oh my I want one of these SO BAD! I can’t talk my husband into one because he drinks a couple pots of coffee a day. I only drink a couple cups a day and this machine could be mine, all mine! Pick me, pick me!

  81. Marcela Says:

    you have me all curious, I’m a hard core coffee drinker (have a french press and a espress maker at home ~ Italian old fashioned one). I would so love to give this machine a try, we go through several cups of coffee a day here.

  82. Meggan Says:

    My husband would LOVE this! I really wanted to get him one for Christmas but couldn’t swing it. This would be an awesome surprise.

  83. Kandi Says:

    It would be so awesome to have one of these machines! I heard they require very little clean up! :)

  84. Jessica D. Says:

    Sounds wonderful. Looks delicious.

  85. Kaity Says:

    Ooh, I would love one of these! My drip coffeemaker is dying a slow, sad death and considering its left over from my college days, its time for a new machine!

  86. Helena Says:

    A Peet’s in the GROCERY STORE?! Oh, California.

    If I win, give it to CC.

  87. Ruth Says:

    I think I need to go make coffee now in a cheap French press in an opaque cup. Hmph. I want one of these!

  88. Ms. Amy Says:

    Sitting in my cold little house, gazing out at the 6″ of snow coating our streets – I dream of hot beverages and saving money. Thanks for the chance to win!

  89. Sarah Says:

    That looks so heavenly! Since I earned my Starbucks gold card in a mere two months … I think it’s about time I cut back! What better way than this little beauty?!

  90. Meg Says:

    It’s almost time to replace my beloved Bunn coffee maker. I’ve been drooling over the pod machines.

  91. TUWABVB Says:

    I’ve wanted a Tassimo for EVER – in fact, I just donated my espresso maker to my office, so this would be a perfect replacement at home – please pick me!!!!

  92. Shannon S. Says:

    Oh man, I’d love this! I make coffee for my husband and I in the morning but as a homeschooling, stay-at-home mother to 3 I need an extra perk in the afternoons…and this little maker would be perfect just for me! I’m not familiar with what “me-time” is, but perhaps this would be a step in the right direction?

  93. JenS Says:

    oh my does that look good. I am munching on dark chocolate covered coffee beans as I type this. I would love love love to win this! would be a great way to start the New Year…

  94. Kristi G Says:

    My husband’s birthday is February 5th and I have no idea what to get him for his birthday. This would rock our world. :) Thanks for blogging.. we love you and Bug!

  95. mamalang Says:

    Ohhh, I, too, was skeptical. Then they had one at a breakfast thing I had to attend for work. Oh my gosh…I fell in love. Now I stalk them. Unfortunately, it’s not in the budget at this time. But if I won one, I would totally refigure my budget in order to get the little cups. ;)

    I love the clear glasses. I’m picky about what I drink out of…I hate cans and such. I want the drink to be visually pleasing as well :)

  96. Beth Says:

    Our coffee maker just went on the fritz! I would LOVE to win this!

  97. Lorey Says:

    At 39 years old, I’m just starting to dip my toe into coffee drinking. This might make me want to dive in! I’m excited just thinking about it!

  98. Rachel S Says:

    Looks delicious! My husband has been obsessing over the Japanese device for making coffee (a filter in this funnel-type thing with swirls) that he got for Christmas, but this would be perfect for my office!

  99. Theresa Collins Says:

    I love the Keurig at work and have been tempted to get one for home. Bet I’d lint the Tassimo just as much, if not more!

  100. Punchbugpug Says:

    cOfFeE YES! Break out the clear cups!!!! Maybe this will be my lucky day????

    thanks for the chance! love your blog!

  101. Christine Says:

    I am an utter philistine who mostly prefers instant coffee to proper coffee. But I still think those things are cute, and if I found a proper coffee I liked (that creamy cappucino looks divine) I could definitely be swayed.

  102. alfredsmom Says:

    I have a 2.5 year old and a 4.5 year old. I NEED THIS!!! :)

    (And I read your site regularly!)

  103. MrsJ Says:

    Looks so yummy. I would love to try–thanks! :)

  104. RebD. Says:

    I LOVE my Senseo since I’m the only coffee drinker in the house and I hated wasting coffee! I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Tassimo… Man, I would totally have to go with the clear mugs too! Check Amazon for good prices on pods…

  105. Rhonda Says:

    Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! I may have to buy one of these myself if I don’t win. Starbucks would wonder what happened to me.

  106. Toni Says:

    My son loves their commercial with the “coffee-makin’ robot”, and I think I could love him, too. So let’s hope you give me a chance to love the robot as well. Thanks so much!

  107. Amanda G. Says:


  108. Summer Says:

    my mom and me were just talking 2 minutes ago how much we need our coffee.

  109. shannon Says:

    That looks amazing.

  110. Sue Says:

    This would COMPLETE my life.

    And save me some bucks as a poor Irish Grad student living in the States!

    Thank you SAJ for the opportunity ;)

  111. Jodi Blackman Says:

    That looks soooo good! Would love this in my kitchen.

  112. Amanda Says:

    New kiddo in daycare starting my day far earlier than before + Starbucks is more than 20 minutes from my house = need more coffee options. :)

  113. mar Says:

    I’ve seen where I think the Keurig one has a refillable pod – you fill it with your own coffee. Does the Tassimo do the same?

    Also, keep an eye on Amazon – they have deals on the coffee pod things all the time. Ridiculously good deals!

    How lovely to have yummy drinks at the touch of a button – and just in time for Bug’s party too, right?

  114. Lisa Says:

    I have been dreaming of owning one of these!

  115. Cristina Says:

    That coffee looks awesome! I need some!

  116. Karen Says:

    I would loooove this!

  117. diana Says:

    no whammies! no whammies! seriously, i want one of these. pick me!

  118. Tiffany Says:

    This is a dream come true…I can see this sitting on my desk at work for coffee on demand!

  119. Nicole Says:

    OF COURSE the year after I stop teaching I stop by for a visit and one of these is in the lounge!

    Our coffee maker is super-de-duper garage-sale old. I would LOVE a Tassimo!

  120. Lori Says:

    My poor drip machine’s lid pops open a little with its own steam… I would love some super easy coffee. A Tassimo would totally fix my addiction.

  121. Ellie Says:

    Oh My! What a wonderful gift! I’ve never owned a coffee maker! I’d LOVE IT!

  122. Susan Says:

    Our french press just died over the weekend. DH and I have been considering other coffee making options for our very small kitchen; this looks great!

  123. Brenda Says:

    I would love to win this!

  124. Calee Says:

    Regular 4:30 am wake-up calls require coffee!

  125. Susan Says:

    I hinted SO HEAVILY that I would love to have one of these for Christmas, but instead my loving husband bought a bunch of whole beans for our aging Kitchen Aid drop coffee pot, which means that I have to grind them to even use them. BOO! I would LOVE this and promise to take good care of it. :-)

  126. Sarah Says:

    I, too, was skeptical of these kinds of coffeemakers until I used my dad’s. It was so quick and easy. I would love to win one.

  127. Marci Says:

    Me me me! (pretty please? :) )

  128. Lisa Says:

    It’s SO COLD in my house right now, and that coffee looks SO WARM and CREAMY and DELICIOUS… oh man, I think I might be drooling. (Awesome pictures, btw)
    It would make me a very, very, VERY happy lady to win this! :)

  129. Amy S Says:

    Oh boy would this be the PERFECT gift for my coffee loving husband! :)

  130. Lorna Says:

    I’m not a coffee fan, but my husband loves it. I’ve heard that you can get tea discs as well. If so, we both could use it!

  131. Janna Says:

    I only need one cup a day so this is perfect! LOVE IT! Can’t wait to read more about the pink princes party!

  132. Teresa M Says:

    Oh I would so love one!

  133. Jessica Says:

    Oh goodness… Life really would just come to a screeching halt if I was to win one of these huh? Wow… I think I would pee.

  134. Michele Says:

    As a stay at home, work at home, daycare giving, no sleep getting, baby holding, diaper changing mama……..please?

  135. leanne Says:

    I’ve been wanting to try one of these out for forever! Looks AMAZING!

  136. JLK Says:

    I would LOVE to win one of these! I LOVE coffee! No one else in my house does..just me!
    I hinted for one of these for Christmas…it didn’t happen :(

  137. Meghan Says:

    Oh man, I want one of these so badly! I’m crossing my fingers that I get picked…

  138. Carolina Says:

    I’ve been TOTALLY wanting to try these! So cool! Thanks!

  139. Kristen Says:

    Hot chocolate for me, coffee for guests!

  140. Lindsay Says:

    This would be perfect for my office!

  141. Amanda D. Says:

    Yum! My husband has an espresso machine, but it takes too long… I’m always telling him I’m going to get one just for me.

  142. DeeJay Says:

    Holy crap! Look at all the comments! You write a mean review SAJ!

  143. Anne Says:

    I just ordered one of these for my dad for Xmas. After reading this I’m thinking I should order one for myself! Or maybe I’l win this contest and I won’t have to :)

  144. kristie Says:

    I would be in love, I’m sure! I’d rush right out and get some clear mugs to see the beauty of the layers, too!
    p.s. I hear Bed Bath and Beyond has pretty good prices on the pods!

  145. Poppy Says:

    Oh I’m a skeptic, but your review is sparking an interest. I love me some coffee.. I live for/off coffee, but why should I have to pay extra for a pod of flavored coffee? You’ve definitely sparked my interest. I’m a sucker for a contest and would be willing to try this baby out!

  146. Molly Says:

    I have heard so many amazing things about the tassimo! happy to know you love it too :)
    I would love to win!!!!!

  147. Danielle B. Says:

    Little that cute little thing! My Keurig is on death’s doorstep. I have to bang it on the side to get it to work and it is only a year old. Perhaps I should consider cutting down on the caffeine? Nahhh.

  148. Heather S. Says:

    I would love to win this! My brother has one that he loves….

  149. Linda B. Says:

    It would be great to have one of those!!

  150. Katherine Says:

    Better than a french press? Oh, Tassimo, you truly sound amazing!

    I’ve heard nothing more than wonderful reviews – And, those layers look absolutely delicious!

    i love my french press. only bc i’m one of those idiots that can’t brew coffee.

  152. Tiffany Says:

    I would love to win this and take it to work and share it with the ladies in my office!!!

  153. kim Says:

    I have just started the coffee drinking thing. I think this would help. A LOT.

  154. Heidi K. Says:

    (wiping drool from face. ok and the little puddle it left behind on my desk, Shhh!)
    This is so cool! It would be a great item to have!

  155. Val G. Says:

    Winning this would be such a great way to start 2011. 2010 was pretty tough (hubs lost his job, we lost our house) and a Tassimo would be such a fun treat. I love the taste of coffee, but can only drink decaf and hubs hates decaf and brewing 2 pots of coffee is just exhausting, so neither of us ever gets any coffee.

  156. Danna Says:

    I have been dying to try one of these. I <3 my coffee too!!


  157. Summer Says:

    My hubby LOVES coffee and his beloved coffee maker leaks non stop and drives us nuts. We would love this new addition to our family. :)

  158. Katie Says:

    We have a nesspresso at work, same idea but it only brews the coffee it doesn’t have milk options. I Looooove it.

  159. erinfromiowa Says:

    Smart bar code technology allows the brewer to adjust each beverage with the proper temperature pressure and amount of water

    Oh my! That means the resulting beverage will be perfect! Yum…

  160. Miss Virginia Says:

    Oh how I would love one!!! PA LEESE pick me!

  161. jill Says:

    coffee, how i love thee!!!

  162. Julie Says:

    Mmmmmm Coffee – long, long, long time reader (I was secret agent 15 (I think) when you made the graphics years ago) and most of the time lurker (at least the past 5 years) glad to see you’re doing well, and amazed at how far your blog has come. All the best from a fellow coffee addict who would love a Tassimo.

  163. Saskia Says:

    Really something better than French press coffee…have to taste it to believe it!

  164. Jenn S Says:

    better than a french press? not sure about that, but would love to be proven wrong!

  165. Michelle Says:

    My coffeemaker just broke so I would LOOOOOVE a new one :) :) :)

  166. Jenny Says:

    pick me, pick me! Love to try one of these and dd would be right behind me! thanks for the contest.

  167. Mary Says:

    gosh that looks so yummy! i hope you pick me! I could use it!!!!

  168. Susan C. Says:

    I have been wondering if the machine was worth it. Sounds like it is perfect for someone like me, who only needs one cup of coffee at a time.

  169. kim Says:

    My dentist has one and I’ve wanted to try it but on the way into the dentist just doesn’t seem right. Coffee breath on the dentist is something I try to avoid. Maybe I’ll show up next time with a glass mug to make a cup to go. Not weird at all, right?
    This seems like a nice treat for your new home.

  170. For the Love of Naps - Sarah Says:

    ooo! I have a baby arriving any day now and a little jolt around 4am to get me through the day as a sleep deprived mom of three would be such a joy! Thanks for the opportunity!

  171. Ashley Says:

    Oh I would love to have one of these!!

  172. sadie clifford Says:

    hey i’m irish not american,i just live here so pick me and it’s like you do’t have to be sad because i am from another country!!!! and us irish are lucky!!!

  173. JenniferW Says:

    That is one of the most delicious looking cups of Joe I have ever seen! Mmmmmm. Coffeeeeee.

  174. Victoria Says:

    I would love this! It sounds like a mini vacation:-) There’s too much snow around me and I make really bad coffee in our 10 year old machine!

  175. erika Says:

    I would looooovvveee this so much. It looks amazing and I trust your expertise so I want one too. *swoon*

  176. jenny Says:

    MMMmmmm I looooove coffee

  177. Andrea Says:

    pretty and delicious? sign me up!

  178. erin Says:

    Mmmmmmmm…..coffee. Yummy!

  179. Lisa Says:

    I totally want one! I love drinking coffee, but I’m way to lazy to make it just for me and this sounds amazing!

  180. Sarah-Louise Says:

    That looks like the perfect thing to fuel this mama of three! :)

  181. Tami A. Says:

    You know, every morning I have the same old boring coffee. I wouldnt mind tasting something new in this! Thanks for this giveaway!

  182. margalit Says:

    Since my son has taken BOTH French Presses I’m stuck without coffee so I need a little machine just like this for my own!

  183. Shaun Says:

    Would LOVE one of these babies! Hello coffee!!

  184. Jody Says:

    I’m a coffee addict. Hoping my name gets picked!

  185. Carolyn Says:

    ummm…yes please! :)

  186. Karli Says:

    I have had my eye on this for some time! I’m tired of cleaning my french press :-)

  187. Karen Says:

    I would love to win one of these! I’ve been thinking about getting one, but it’s not in the budget.

  188. Suze Says:

    Please please please!

  189. kathleen Says:

    oh, that looks so good!

  190. Alexandra Says:

    This looks so delicious–what beautiful layers in the glass coffee mugs! Thanks for the chance to win!

  191. Sandy Says:

    Wow, that looks delicious and I love your mugs!

  192. Heather Says:

    I’d love one of these! It would sure beat the awful free coffee we have to drink here at work. I’d put Tassimo on my desk and share with my co-workers.

  193. Lara Says:

    I was actually complaining this morning about how dissatisfied I am with the coffee from my drip coffee maker. I have been lusting after those Tassimo machines but my hubby is a non-coffee drinker and doesn’t want to ‘enable’ my habit.
    Thanks for sharing the chance to win one!

  194. Jessica Says:

    I would love to have one of these, and my husband would love it for the 5am mornings when the drip brewing just isn’t working out right….Send one our way…pretty pretty please!

  195. Shawna Says:

    I would LOVE this!

  196. linda Says:

    my guy will love this!

  197. Donna G Says:

    I just saw somewhere (forgive me – the coffee has not yet kicked in) where you could make your own cups with your own coffee and save some $$, but then where would be all the variety that makes this so exciting? I like that you can do hot chocolate and teas, besides coffee.

  198. Jenny Says:

    This is a *Must Have* for me. I am *so* not a morning person. Tassimo to the rescue! :)

  199. Michelle Says:

    I’m kind of scared to comment…what if I won it! I’m already a coffee addict! I would go crazy although depending upon the cost of the t-discs it might save me some money too. :)

  200. Susan H. Says:

    Good for you, you deserve a cool coffee maker! And the discs are so convenient. One cup at a time is perfect.

  201. Peggi Says:

    mmmm looks great! I was kind of hoping you’d show exactly how it works – you fill the reservoir with water, put in the little disk or pod thingy and it brews? One cup at a time, or is that flexible? How long does it take? I’ve not seen one in action, as you can tell….

    I do love my coffee. I love it in the morning with creamer and reading the blogs, and I love it in the evening with dulce de leche and Kahlua. I’d probably mainline it if I could….

  202. caly Says:

    would really LOVE to win/try this out. ~~ fingers crossed ~~

    thank you :D

  203. Lu Says:

    hi. i have been reading you in secret for awhile now (apropos) and feel a little guilty that my first comment is on a coffee-maker give-away. thanks for the opportunity, though.

  204. Sarah S Says:


  205. Alyssa Says:

    Oooh, looks so great! I would love this so much!

  206. Liane Says:

    Wow, what a review! Now I really want one too!

  207. sue Says:

    Oh pick me! Or as my kids say…..me,me,me,me! Cappuchino in my own home? HEAVEN! :-)

  208. Tara Says:

    Sweet! My husband would love to be able to make a cappuccino on a whim anytime of the day. :)

  209. Brittany Says:

    Hoping I’ve got a lucky bone for this contest!

  210. Alexandra Says:

    Ooooh, my espresso machine just broke so I hope my name gets picked!!!

  211. Sara Says:

    We use our French Press every day, but I have been longing for one of these! Great for when I’m running out of the house to grad school. :)

  212. Iris Says:

    I need a new coffee maker as the one I’ve had for the last 3 years broke this week. I’d love one of these!!

  213. Kary Says:

    This looks awesome! I’d love to win!

  214. danielle Says:

    ohhh! pick me!! puh-lease!!!!

  215. Laurie Says:

    Dear Coffee,
    I <3 you.

  216. Jana Says:

    Good enough to replace Starbucks It’s a magic coffee maker then

  217. karen Says:

    I just returned a keurig I got as a gift because I had wanted the tassimo instead! I have a one month old so the kitchen counter space is being monopolized by baby stuff but I will make room for this!

  218. robyn james Says:

    [sung to Happy Birthday]

    Happy Birthday dear Bug,
    Do you like your new rug?
    I’m sending you a hug,
    And a happy new Zzzzzz!

    Dear S.A. Josephine: Your relationship with your daughter is my favorite thing about your blog. Thank you for sharing yourself with us!

  219. Jennifer Says:

    I want it! I want it! I want it! I have seen these advertise, and even hinted for Christmas, but I still don’t have one. I would love to win this. I enjoy reading your blog, hearing about you and your family.

  220. mimi shingleton Says:

    I stumbled upon your blog a few days ago…and have been reading and reading. I am almost a year in. I love my coffee, too! Have not tried this machine and would love to win it!

  221. Megan Beecroft Says:

    Oh!! I want it :) I love these! I actually am not a coffee drinker, but they make hot chocolates and delicious teas, and I swoon. We have one at work, that I can use on very special occasions – White Hot Chocolate, with mini marshmallows….to die for!!

  222. Crystal Says:

    Have heard wonderful things about this coffee maker! I would be a nice addition to have a special coffee for our weekend breakfasts.

  223. Nicki Says:

    I wonder how this compares to my trusty Keurig… which I love.

  224. Colleen Says:

    Oh, tasty beverages are always welcome in our house. I think we’d have to get some glass mugs too if I won to appreciate the layering. Thanks for the chance!

  225. mallory Says:

    Oh! My husband would be forever grateful to me if I won this! And I would be be forever grateful to you!

  226. April G. Says:

    Ooooooh! I didn’t know you could get cappuccino pods! That’s so nifty!

  227. Clover Says:

    This would be a HUGE step up from the old Mr. Coffee drip coffee maker we bought when we got married 11 years ago. I would love to see that sitting on my counter!

  228. Lauren Elizabeth Says:

    Looks amazing!! I’ve been dying to kick my Dunkin’ Donuts habit for weeks now, and I think this is just the thing!

  229. Colleen Wolowski Says:

    Mmmm, I would love to win that! Love your blog, by the way. Wishing you and Bug well.

  230. Amanda Says:

    This is awesome!! Would definitely enjoy some coffee more often with this.

  231. Brea Says:

    Wow, that cappuccino looks YUMMY! Would love to win this! :)

  232. Troy Says:

    That looks fabulous and would be a great addition for us when we don’t want to make a whole pot of coffee. Thanks for the review, you really sold it!

  233. Elisabeth Says:

    Yes, please! That looks dee-lish!

  234. Bree Says:

    Oooooh yum! Hope I made the cut-off!!

  235. Rebecca Says:

    All those layers of creamy goodness look delicious…and I thought I was sold on my french press…

  236. Genevieve Says:

    Ohhhh – with one of these I might actually start enjoying the morning again!

  237. Sheri Says:

    I’ve always said I’m not a coffee drinker, but I think one of these could change my mind :)

  238. Annebel Says:

    would.love.this! thank you for the chance!

  239. Karin S. Says:

    I too steered clear of these automated machines – a regular old coffee maker was fine — UNTIL i went to a friend’s house over the holiday and they had one. I tasted such goodness, I melted under its spell. Saving up my pennies now….

  240. Krissa Says:

    Oh man, I love these. My professor has the Nespresso machine and we’re obsessed with it.

    [...] all know I was a HUGE Tassimo fan, right? I loved the Tassimo. I could write sonnets to the Tassimo.  Well guess what?  As of March of this year, Starbucks no [...]
