At the end of last year we decided we wanted to get our hands on a Tassimo machine so that it’d make our mornings that little bit more enjoyable and we can be faffing around feeding the cat or serving out our cereal whilst our hot drink was being made. We decided on buying the Bosch Tassimo Joy machine and have had hot drinks made for us using it everyday since.
Jordan’s a fan of the Costa Americano coffee before his daily hour drive to work during the week, whilst I prefer something a little more adventurous with the Costa Caramel Latte and the Carte Noir Latte Macchiato Caramel (which we often buy in bulk) being particular favourites. Can’t you tell I’m a bit of a caramel fiend? During the winter we were both big fans of using the Tassimo machine to make us hot chocolates too. It seems to be a lot smoother in consistency than the ones you’d make yourself, plus I’m terrible at managing to get just the right amount of chocolatey-ness and this takes out the guess work. I also like the fact that you don’t have to wait for the kettle to boil, it’s just a case of popping in a T-disc, pressing the button and away it goes. It looks great on the kitchen surface too and I’ve created a little hot drinks area with some Ben De Lisi London Stacking Mugs to one side and all of the T-discs in the cupboard above.
Before we decided to get a Tassimo machine I never really thought we would use it but it’s really become a staple item in our kitchen and I couldn’t imagine not having it now, like I said before it makes our mornings a whole lot easier and it’s nice to be able to have a few more luxurious hot drinks instead of a standard cup of tea all the time. Our Bosch Tassimo Joy has been nothing less than reliable in the last 6 months, looks rather sleek sitting on the kitchen work surface and I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something to make life a little bit easier, or want to broaden your horizons in the fancy drinks department.
Oh and I’m not going to lie, I’m rather desperate to give the Oreo Hot Chocolate a go, despite it stating it’s for children of all ages. At 25 I’ll take it if it means gulping down the taste of an Oreo cookie!
