Last year, right before Christmas, I came home one day to see this intriguing box outside my front door. The great folks at Tassimo had sent me this this fabulous little number. It makes cappuchino, hot chocolate, chai tea latte…oh and also coffee and tea.
You get all this hot beverage stuff done via these handy little pods – you pop one into the top of the brewer and it magically figures out what you are cooking up and adds in the exact amount of hot water for exactly the right amount of time. Now THAT’S what I call the miracle of modern technology.
It was pretty much love at first sight for me, and I’ve spent the last year saying to everyone who comes to my house, “May I get you a hot beverage?” And being ridiculously excited when they say yes.
So you can imagine my excitement last week when I came home and there was ANOTHER Tassimo box outside my front door…this time with the T20 model. Which is kind of like the original machine’s cute little brother. And before I start going on AGAIN about how much I love this thing, let me just state for the record that the great folks at Tassimo sent me this fabulous device at no cost and with no strings attached other than to give my straight-up, no-holds-barred, honest opinion. Which is, straight-up and no-holds-barred, that I love this new version of the machine just as much as I did a year ago.
It does all the great stuff the bigger model does, but takes up less counter space. Great taste, less filling!
Over the course of the past year, I have learned that you can get the beverage pods at Amazon, at Bed Bath and Beyond, or you can sign up for a regular delivery system if you are a dedicated hot beverage drinker and are very organized. So…if you are looking for a last minute holiday gift idea, or are wondering what to do with those gift cards you got in your stocking…I’ll just wrap this up by saying I do love mine. Love it. Hot beverage, anyone??
