Tassimno T20 Brewing System Review & Giveaway *ENDED*

I'll be honest here, I don't drink coffee, at all. I love the way it smells, but can't stand the way it tastes. Tassimo sent me a home brewing system that we've had for a month, and I've been using it non-stop since we got it!

I was sent the Tassimo T20 Brewing System and two flavors of coffee to try.Here are some basic details about the Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System:

  • Finish: Black

  • Makes coffee, tea, cappuccino, latte, crema, espresso and hot cocoa

  • Makes drinks in about 1 minute

  • Includes an exclusive flow–through water heater for faster, quieter brewing

  • Space saving design ideal for apartments, dorm rooms and countertops

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

  • 5.6 lbs.

  • Brewer dimensions: Width: 7.88" ; Height: 11" ; Depth: 11.75"

  • Imported

  • 1.5 Liter water tank

  • $129.99


  • As stated above the T20 hardly takes up any counter space, which is a huge plus living in military housing where counter space is at a minimum.

    Upon initial set up, the T20 requires the user to run 5 cups of water through the system to clean it before the first usage. That's really easy to do by using the cleaning disc that comes with the T20.

    The bar code on the cleaning disc and all the T Discs tells the machine how hot to brew the water so all drinks come out at exactly the correct temperature needed to ensure a perfect drink every time.

    You simply place your coffee mug onto the cup stand and you're ready to begin!

    (Of course I have a frog coffee mug. Was there any doubt in your mind? :P)

    Then you insert the T-Disc of your chosen beverage into the disc slot, bar code down (so the machine can read it), close the disc holder, and press start.


    Within one minute, you'll have a fresh, hot beverage you can enjoy!

    (Pretend there's a picture of my filled mug here. I was so excited to try my hot chocolate, that I forgot to take a picture.)


    Since receiving the T20 in December, we've tried both the coffees that came with the product to review, and bought hot chocolate for me. The Milka Hot Chocolate is my personal favorite, while Mr. Frog likes the Gevalia, and D really enjoys a nice cup of Starbucks Cappucino to start his morning. The really great thing about the T20, the money you save using it instead of running to Starbucks every day! You can get 16 T-Discs (8 creamer and 8 espresso) of Starbucks Cappucino Primo for $10.49 on the Tassimo site. That averages out to about $1.37 each! A package of 12 Starbucks House Blend coffee is also $10.49, which is about .88 a cup! Seeing as how a Tall Starbucks coffee runs over $3 a pop, I'd say using a Tassimo T20 is a MUCH better deal!

    BUY IT!

    The Tassimo T20 can be purchased for $129.99 and is available at select Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, Kohls, Macy’s and select specialty stores as well as the Tassimo website. Right now on their website, Tassimo is offering the T20 for only $99.99 with 2 free T-Disc packages! What a great deal!

    WIN IT!

    My friends over at Tassimo have generously offered up a Tassimo T20 and 2 free coffees (the same Starbucks Cappucino Primo and Gevalia I received) to my readers/followers! Woot!
