Tassimo T45: The Brewbot
Enjoying a cup is one thing.. preparing it, well, is a bit of a different matter. We would all probably agree that for most of the time we like each cup to taste like our “usual” preferred taste, which means consistency is important.
In this review, we will take a look at the Tassimo T45, a unique single serve machine from the company Bosch which makes use of the T-disc system of Tassimo.
A Cup in a Minute
The Tassimo T45 offers speedy brew times and easy operation. How easy? Well, to make a quick sum up, all you need to do basically is: fill the water tank, power up the machine, place the T-Disc, and place a cup beneath the brew outlet. It does the actual brewing process in under a minute, and this makes it very impressive indeed compared to other coffee makers.
A World of Taste
For those not yet familiar with the Tassimo T-Disc System, it is basically a single-serve method of creating hot beverages through T-Discs, and they cover an impressive list of supported beverages:
- Lattes / Cappuccino
- Hot Chocolate
- Crema Coffee
Aside from this, the Tassimo system is known for its amazing capability of using liquid-shelf milk for single-serve coffee. This means T-Discs filled with pasteurized milk can be used hand-in-hand with the usual espresso T-Discs and the result is a much more creamier and tasty espresso or hot beverage. The T-Discs are available from different companies like Gevalia, Maxwell House, Seattle’s Best, and Starbucks.
Looks and Features
The Tassimo T45 comes in a compact frame of 13-1/4 by 8 by 11 inches, and is predominantly black in color with either a silver or red finish on both sides and trim on the brewing unit.
The Cup area is adjustable, so using different mug sizes will not be problem when brewing.
The sleek LED dial serves as your control panel: Stand-By, Automatic, Manual, Fill-Tank and De-Scale are your options when operating the device.
A large water reservoir located at the back comes with a handle, water filter, and a filter-quality display. One thing worth noting here is that compared to others in its class, the Tassimo T45 brews rather more quietly.
- Easy and Fast Single Serve System – The Tassimo T-Disc System makes superb-tasting beverages and is available in different flavors and brews
- Liquid-shelf Milk support – T-Disc Hyper-Pasteurized milk can be used to make your brews even more delicious
- Quiet Operation
- Uses premium water filtration – MAVEA water filters
- Water Reservoir located at the back (might be difficult to access when placed near a wall)
- If you wish to serve various drinks at the same time it can become quite time consuming due to the nature of being a single serve machine – one drink at a time
Overall, the Tassimo T45 gets our two thumbs-up for being an excellent all-rounder when it comes to hot beverages. The espresso and coffee it produces is excellent, and the ability to use milk T-Discs is a great feature to have. It is very easy to operate and maintain, and the delicious results it produces are consistent every time.
