A coffee machine is always something Matt and I have lusted after but never got round to actually buying. So I was delighted when I was offered the chance to review the Tassimo T40 Coffee Machine
. With a fresh, contemporary design, the T40 looks stylish whilst remaing compact and easy to use. As a newbie to coffee machines, I was wondering how simple I would find the set up and everyday use of the coffee machine. It was just a matter of plugging the machine in and using the cleaning disc a few times before the machine was ready for use.
It's fool proof to use - making a drink simply involves inserting a disc into the top of the machine. The barcode is then read and the drink poured at the touch of a button. It truly could not be any easier. One of the main advantages I found is just how quick the machine is to use. I no longer have to fill the kettle and wait for an age for it to boil, a complete drink is now made in around one minute. The height of the cup stand is also adjustable so depending on whether you'll be enjoying an espresso, a big mug of tea, or a latte, the height of any cup can be accommodated.
Personally, I'm not a huge fan of tea and coffee, (although Matt has been enjoying the espresso for energy boosts), so I've ordered the Carte Noir Caramel Latte Macchiato and Suchard Hot Chocolate discs which sound delicious and have had great reviews. I'm also tempted to try the Cappuccino discs on offer.
The coffee machine has been a welcome addition to our kitchen. Our kettle has been relegated in favour of the quick fix the Tassimo T40 gives and we've been enjoying it daily since it arrived. I'd recommend it to any lover of hot drinks who wants a simple and stylish coffee machine to make their lives easier!
Tassimo T40 Coffee Machine is priced at £99.99 and is available to buy from Amazon
