Coffee machine reviews for home workers – Bosch Tassimo

Coffee machine reviews – best for a home working break

Coffee making is the most popular reason for home workers to take a break, and we’re often fanatical about how we make it and how we drink it. The following coffee machine reviews have been carried out by home workers with that purpose in mind.

Bosch Tassimo

Design ****

This Bosch Tassimo machine is quite chunky but it looks nice on the worktop.

Easy to use ***

Assembly a bit fiddly, washing all these different parts in bubbly water, but once it’s set up that’s it done. Pretty straight forward to use; it’s just awkward getting the water tank off the back.

Pleasant to use/nice ritual as break from home working *

Not much of a ritual, you just put the pod in and press a button. Not much of a break from homeworking just because it’s so quick and easy to use.

Easy to clean *****

You pop a service capsule in the front (usually stored in the back), push the button to activate and it cleans the machine for you. It is recommended you clean it once a week. Also, you can put some of the most used parts in the dishwasher, which is handy.

Economical to buy and use *

The Bosch Tassimo machine itself costs almost £70, and the coffee pods about £4 for 16 drinks, or 8 drinks if you go for premium coffees including Costa. (You can also get tea and hot chocolate pods). Plus the Brita water filter they provide you with has to be replaced after eight weeks approx, which will then cost you £11.99 for two.

Quality of coffee*

The coffee’s alright, it’s just the milk that’s not very nice because it’s UHT. If you drink black coffee or you’re happy to microwave the milk then it’s fine, although that defeats the point of buying the machine in the first place! But if you like a cappucino or a latte then it’s not so pleasant. There’s a reasonable range, but you’re limited to the coffee within the range.

Stars overall ** 2½

Best for

If you like a coffee shop coffee, you like it to taste the same every time, and you like to do it quickly and with a minimum of fuss and mess, then the Bosch Tassimo is the coffee machine for you.

With thanks to Tassimo for supplying the machine for our home working coffee machine reviews.
