Product Description

Tassimo T55

In a brand new design with a blend of black and chrome finishing, the Styline Tassimo T55 utilises the intelligent barcode technology, found in all our Tassimos, to deliver your favourites at the touch of a button. Whilst many of us enjoy a coffee shop beverage, we often don't have the time, which is where Tassimo comes in. The Tassimo is so easy to use, as well as being user friendly and stylishly designed. Tassimo gives you the choice of a growing range of hot beverages.

Key Feature

Not just a coffee machine

Tassimo provides a variety of freshly prepared hot beverages with just a touch of a button. Your options are near endless with the T55; 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.

Unique and patented technology

Tassimo's unique T DISC technology includes a product specific brewing chamber and barcode reader, so 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 T55 requires virtually no cleaning thanks to the dishwasher safe parts and the automatic de-scaling programme. Refilling the 1.4 litre water tank is easy due to the flip up handle and you can monitor the water level from the outside.

Simple to operate

The T55 is incredibly simple to use so you are just 4 easy steps away from the perfect hot drink. Just pick a drink, pop in the disc, push the button and enjoy your drink. It's as simple as that.

One touch programming

The one touch start/stop button features a multi-light indicator and you can switch between a short and long drink at just the press of a button.

Height adjustable cup stand

The height adjustable and removable cup stand with stainless steel drip tray can be fully removed for tall latte glasses or insulated travel mugs.

Manual adjustment

With the T55 it is possible to customise your drink strength using the dedicated manual adjustment button, giving you the exact balance for your ideal 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 T55 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 temperature required, providing you with your much needed morning drink that bit quicker.

Sleek design

The modern chrome trim brew head and black bodied design will look great in any kitchen.

Inbuilt filter

The inbuilt BRITA MAXTRA water filtration system ensures the water used to make your hot drink is as pure as possible and the digital change indicator lets you know when it's time to replace the filter.

    We bought the Tassimo after seeing one in action at the BBC Good Food Show and sampling a few coffee types. Even at that stage, we were still sceptical as we have had a number of other coffee makers, most of which ended up unloved in the back of the cupboard due to slowness, difficulty of cleaning etc. The T55 is designed and built by Bosch with Tassimo itself being a part of Kraft foods.

    What a revelation the Tassimo has turned out to be. Extremely quick and with minimal cleaning requirements,the T55 also has a Brita filter, a huge advantage in a hard water area like ours. Speed of operation is truly outstanding with start up to drink pouring well under a minute in most cases.

    All this would be pointless if the quality of the drinks was not up to scratch but the Tassimo offerings generally do not disappoint. Everyone has their favourites but the Carte Noire Lattes (caramel is a universal hit), Creme Brûle, Suchards hot chocolate, Carte Noire Cappuccino and Twinings Chai tea have all quickly become must haves. Mixed reception for the Costa coffees but everyone has their individual favourites. A pity that no sample sized packs of capsules are available but even the least liked are good enough to be used up.

    The Tassimo T55 has become that rarity, a valued kitchen gadget that would be missed.The black and chrome finish looks good sitting permanently on the kitchen worktop.

    Capsules (known as T Discs) are widely available from all the main supermarkets and Amazon as well as from Tassimo (Kraft) direct. Our only small gripe occurred after Christmas when demand caused a few days delay in Tassimo restocking T discs but overall, we would highly recommend the T55 and the Tassimo system.

    This machine - is fantastic.

    I say that as someone who previously had a 'proper' espresso machine and a filter coffee maker too. I say it as someone who ground his own beans fresh. I say it as someone who also enjoys a nice, proper cup of tea from time to time too.

    Here's the impressive thing. This isn't just a fancy and expensive way of making 'instant' coffee, /ALL/ of Tassimo's coffee discs have real, genuine ground coffee in them, and all the tea discs have real, genuine tea in them. This means you get a pretty damn good cup of coffee or tea out of the machine.

    You get all of this /fast/ very fast. Just pop a disc in and press the go button, and within seconds the thing starts pumping out your drink. It does so without compromising on the heat of the beverage - it's a proper hot drink! Clean-up is easy too - just open the door and throw away the spent T-Disc. (Check the Tassimo website for details on where you can recycle used discs).

    It's super easy too - no array of buttons or settings, just press the button. The machine /knows/ what disc is in because of the barcode, so it knows what to do. I do appreciate however that this machine in particular (T55) has the option to pre-set whether I'd like more, or less water pumped through so I can choose between a shorter, stronger drink, or a longer, milder one.

    Even the hot chocolate is good. Go ahead, make a hot chocolate the 'usual' way, with either cocoa powder, or with those 'instant' hot chocolate powders you get in the shops. You'll get a silty texture, and a load of 'sludge' in the bottom of the mug. Tassimo makes the smoothest hot chocolates I've ever had - even better than what you get at certain mainstream coffee chains- No sludge, no silt.

    We have two Tassimos in the office, a T20 and a T40, and I've got the T55 for personal home use.
    Between every other Tassimo machine I can't really find a good reason not to buy the T20 as it does all the others do for less money.
    The T55 however has a very, very neat size of beverage regulator so you can decide to have a shorter or a longer drink without any fiddling, unlikely every other Tassimo. It comes with a Brita filter, which makes for nicer coffee and the base is quickly adjustable for when making espressos.

    Bottom line, on a budget? T20. Willing to get a better machine? T55.

    This is one of my best purchases ever. The machine is easy to use , though I have seen better setting up instructions. My favourite coffee is Costa and this was a major factor in selecting my choice of machine. I also picked the version with the water filter as I am aware of the hard water in my area and didn't want my coffee machine furring up like my kettle.

    I like the fact that you can also add extra or less water to a coffee according to taste which is an added bonus if you have a lot of people in the house who like coffee. I had a little problem at first removing the cup stand to put in a latte glass with a handle but once I'd worked it out it the stand comes out easily.

    One weird fact is that a Costa caramel latte fits in a 250ml glass but the ordinary latte overflows

    On the whole I am very pleased with the T pods. Costa caramel latte tastes just like in the shop. I find the Costa cappucino tastes good but I need two milk pods to one coffee as I find the milk portion quite miserly. I can also make a decaff version with the cafe noire version which although quite acceptable is not as good as the decaff Costa version. Costa / Tassimo please note, bring out a decaff Costa t pod version.
    I have also made a good mocha by adding a cadbury chocolate t pod to my cappuccino. The only downside to the pods is that some of the portions can be a bit stingy and the cost is a bit more expensive than some of other coffee pod types. Although more supermarkets are now stocking the t pods some can only be bought on line, particularly the decaff versions.
