The Ultra Premium TASSIMO T65 Home Brewing System by Bosch uses the savvy exclusive barcode system to scan each T DISC, the brewer identifying precise brewing instructions with the exact pressure, temperature, water, and time duration, so each and every drink is perfect. A delicious cup of your favorite coffeehouse-style beverage is yours at the touch of a button. A multilingual LCD display and cup stand light offer extra convenience, while a water filter ensures the right taste.
I purchased this machine this week so these are initial thoughts. The machine was excellently packaged and perfect out of the box. Setup is easy and doesn't take a lot of time. Operation is straight forward and nearly silent compared to all the other single serve pod machines. The controls and LCD readout make using the machine a pleasure. The water filter is a very nice addition. The size makes it very counter friendly. And it is just plain cute;)
However, the range of coffees is disappointing at the present time. With the loss of Starbucks there are no truly excellent American style 11 to 14 ounce coffees. Most importantly there is no Sumatra at all. This is the major downside for Tassimo in the USA. The upside for me in the Washington state area I can purchase T-cups of most of those available in a number of department, grocery, and hardware stores.
