This review is from: Bosch TAS6515GB Tassimo beverage maker titanium (Kitchen & Home)
Bought this for my partners birthday (who has a passion for gadgets & wanted a coffee machine!). I must admit i thought that it would possibly be another one of those kitchen items that never really gets used BUT, having had it now for just over two months, i can safely say that our kettle is redundant!! We use it for every hot drink we do! Which brings me to the fabulous selection of tassimo drinks you can get! The hot chocolate & the Twinings tea! Lovely!! I personally am not a huge coffee drinker but due to the wide selection of drink you can use with this machine i would still recommend it & he, who does love coffee, never bores of all the different variaties & it is very quick & simple to use.
My only gripe would be that it doesnt make a huge cup..you either need two discs or to make sure you add more water (which there is an option to do)OR you could just used smaller mugs!
We have a large kitchen so space wasnt a concern but this machine is quite slimline & im sure would fit nicely in most kitchens. A very good design.
very impressed & would definately recommend.

I can second this review. I have had one of these for three years now and it is used daily. I recommend that the cleaning disc needs to be used regularly and the water should be filtered first. I use the cleaning disc before every usage to warm the mug - I only let it deliver a small amount of hot water. This technique seems to have given the machine an indefinite life, so far.

I am thinking about purchasing one of these but need to know how much coffee the machine actually dispenses. I am a coffee addict and need to know if this will make a perfect "mug" of coffee? I've tried searching the internet but no one seems to talk about the size of the end result. I know that you can add hot water after it has finished dispensing the coffee but this will obviously water down the end result. So, can anyone advise me on whether this will dispense a mug full of strong black coffee? Cheers

Cup size isn't massive and will be half to 3/4 of a mug and like you say the add more hot water only serves to water down your coffee! For most drinks 2 discs fills a mug to the brim.

My son in USA has a coffee maker and my husband was very taken with it. If I get one it really must be easy to use and need very little cleaning. How would you rate this one?

You'll find this really easy, the only cleaning I've done is the occasional wipe down and rinse of some of the parts. In order to operate the machine you put the disc in, clamp it down and then click go it's as simple as that. If my dad can manage it (who is alien to all technology including finding any other channel on sky than sky sports) then anyone can!

pod machines are rubbish, buy a bean to cup machine for real coffee. My opinion is you may as well buy instant coffee and save yourself the money. You get what you pay for I guess.....
