Bosch Tassimo Coffee Maker TAS4013GB
(London, England, UK)
I have been using the Bosch TAS4013GB for a while now. I cannot complain and neither do I have a reason to shift to a different brand or model anytime soon. Let us hope it remains that way. It is a multi beverage coffee maker that can do more or less the same blends that you would expect from today's coffee maker including Espresso, Cappuccino, teas, Latte and Macchiato. I am a Latte freak so even if it could only do that one blend, I would still be happy.
Other than that, I like the barcode system, which helps me stick to a ‘winning' formula.
I consider it to be above average when it comes to speed of preparing each cup. The fact that it does not easily heat up thanks to the flow heater is a benefit I do not mind having. The height adjustable cup stand allows me to put in that mega mug especially for those nights that I need copious amounts of coffee to stay awake without the need to make many trips to the kitchen.
A good number of the parts can be removed and slotted in the dishwasher. This though is something many coffee makers have the capacity to do so that might not really qualify as extraordinary. I find the 2-liter jug adequate to cover a couple of rounds without a refill now that my household would not really qualify as a ‘coffee republic'. My biggest problem for now with the TAS 4013GB is that I have really struggled to get the pods in the market. They are not that easily available. In addition, the gauge on the water jug does not match with the gauge on the machine. But that is something I think I can live with.Editor's note
