Key feature

Not just a coffee machine

Tassimo provides a variety of freshly prepared hot beverages at just the touch of a button. Your options are near endless with the T4012--coffees, teas, infusions and hot chocolate can be easily prepared, all from the same machine. With 40+ varieties of quality hot drinks under leading brands including Kenco, Twinings, Cadbury, Carte Noire and the NEW Costa range, you'll have access to a vast array of quality hot drinks--most of which can be freshly brewed in just 60 seconds. (Except Cappuccino and Latte Macchiato 2 T-DISCS)

Unique and patented technology

Tassimo's unique T DISC technology includes a product specific brewing chamber and barcode reader, meaning each drink is brewed to perfection.  This automatic drink identification allows the machine to manage water amount, temperature, pressure and brewing time, ensuring that every individual variety of beverages is made to perfection.

Easy to maintain

The steam purge at the end of each drink preparation means there is no taste transfer between each different beverage, so your drink will always taste refreshingly consistent. The T4012 requires virtually no cleaning thanks to the dishwasher safe parts and the automatic de-scaling programme. Refilling the two litre water tank is easy due to the flip up handle and you can monitor the water level from the outside using the float.

Simple to operate

The T4012 is incredibly simple and easy to use thanks to the single button operation and just 4 easy steps. Just pick a drink, pop in the disc, push the button and enjoy your drink. It's as simple as that.

Multi light indicator

The multi-light indicator lets you know the status of the T4012 at any given time. There is a standby light, a solid and flashing light to indicate the status of the brewing process, a manual brewing indicator, an empty water tank warning and a descaling light. With this array of handy indication features you'll never need to worry about your Tassimo. 

Height adjustable cup stand

Adjust the height of the cup stand to accommodate your favourite cup, or remove altogether to fit in travel mugs and latte glasses.

Manual adjustment

With the T4012 it is possible to customise your drink strength using the dedicated manual adjustment button, giving you exactly what you want from your hot drink.

Four Stages
Four Drink Stages
Cable storage facility

The handy cable storage facility contains the 100cm cable, keeping your kitchen surfaces tidy and clutter free.

Low energy consumption

The T4012 boasts an impressively low energy consumption as it automatically reverts to standby mode after every brew cycle, making it incredibly cheap to run.

Virtually no heat up time

Your Tassimo is ready to go in next to no time with the innovative flow heater. This technology means that there is a minimal wait for your water to heat to the required temperature, providing you with your much needed morning drink that bit quicker.

Sleek black design

The modern design in black will look great in any kitchen and will compliment any décor.

The GOOD is it makes a great cup of coffee or other drinks most times.
The BAD is that the earlier T discs particularly the "crema" types often exploded. They have redisigned them now so the problem has mostly gone away. The official descaler tablets cost more than 24carat gold but you can use Oust according to those that know.
The INDIFFERENT is Customer Services.

love my tassimo, no more kettle in the kitchen - hot drinks that even the kids can make for you. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and many more - use the tassimo site for discs for a huge range, order £30 or more for free delivery. Tesco and Morrisons stock tea, coffee and hot choc but asda is useless only stocking the hot choc.
Very easy to use - put in water in storage tank, place cup underneath and press a button - "simples" my friends.

This is a fantastic product that delivers great coffee every time, quickly and easily. Ok, the T-Discs may be a bit expensive but if you're just going to use it as an occasional treat it seems more than worth it.

So simple to use, just make sure it's got water in, pop in the disc, press the button and away it goes. After it's done (typically in less than 60 seconds) you get the choice to alter the strength / quantity of the drink (which is sometimes desirable) and then you're done, ready for a second drink straight away if required. The drink comes out hot and stays hot for a good while (nothing worse than a tepid / luke warm coffee!).

The machine is a bit noisy, but at least you know it's doing something, and it is advised to clean the system after milky drinks, but it's very easy to do. The range of drinks is also great (the Twinings tea is better than any tea bag I've ever tasted) and the machine looks smart and is small enough to sit on your work surface without taking up too much room.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a quick and easy coffee machine to use at home, and the price isn't bad too!

We had the Braun for about 9 months and that died a sudden death, but was used at least twice daily. Working for BOSCH, we snuck one of these home and its been brilliant. The design is more modern and whilst at times it can be a bit violent producing coffee it makes a great cup.

It's still going strong now!

However, my nan bought the Flavia fusion, the sachets make much nicer cups, u can alter strengths and cup sizes and best of all the sachets are cheaper per cup than these pods. When this one dies, we are moving systems.

Have had the bosch tassimo for 11 months and on the whole it is excellent.
However it can be tempremental, the odd exploding disc, and descaling can be a pain, you must use bosch descaling products for best results. As this makes on average 10-12 cups per day the pros outweigh the cons.

Turn it on. Insert disc. Great coffee 30 seconds later.
This really is probably the best gadget I've ever bought.
Easy to use and great results. A faultless product, I should of
bought one years ago. It even looks pretty good and doesn't
take up much space.

I got this as a Christmas present a year ago. The coffee is great. I've taken to heating a small amount of milk in the microwave for a minute before adding either Kenco Cafe Crema or Columbian coffee. The discs are expensive but do the job perfectly. I've taken to bulk buying through Amazon.TASSIMO Kenco Colombian 16 T DISCs (Pack of 5, Total 80 T DISCs)
The reason I've not given 5 stars is that the machine developed an intermittent fault whilst reading the discs. It wouldn't read the disc first time and needed opening and closing a few times to make it work. I persevered with this for a few months - I still got good coffee - until I decided I'd had enough. The fault was with the barcode reader. I rang customer services who sent out a postage paid voucher to return the item. I was sent a shiny new machine by return of post. My advice - register the machine and send it back at first sign of a fault.
In summary, great coffee and drinking chocolate. Play around to find out how you like it. Oh, and keep a stock of de-scaling tablets as you can't use it when it needs doing!

Bosch Tassimo TAS4012GB Multi-Beverage Machine - Black

I bought this Tassimo to replace one of the original Braun machines that was wearing out - I must say this is a much improved design that makes it even easier to use with a lever on the cup holder to adjust the height and an improved overflow design that seems to mean very little waste water compared to the original design

A bonus with this machine is that it takes the 'double height' tassimo capsules that are common in the US and are now appearing more in the UK.
