If there's one thing that makes getting out of bed easier in the morning, it's the knowledge that there's a good cup of coffee waiting for you.
Pre-pandemic, we usually grabbed one from our local cafe on the way to work, but now, with many of us still working from home (at least for a chunk of the week), that morning caffeine commute takes us just a few steps away, to the kitchen.
But downing your first cup at home doesn't mean you need to miss out on the indulgent depth and perfect crema of an artisanal coffee - enter: the Tassimo by Bosch Style Coffee Machine.
Not only will it save time and energy on doing a coffee run. It also means we have money spare to support our local cafes in other ways, like buying copious pastries!
Why we rate it:
The integrated Intellibrew technology makes sure your coffee has a perfect taste and aroma, balancing the correct amount of water and the right temperature for the ideal brewing time.
All you have to do is slip in a disc, press the button and let the machine do the rest. And to save on energy, it automatically shuts itself off when not in use.
A whopping 70 types of coffee and hot drink pods are compatible with the machine, including Costa, Kenco, Twinings, Cadbury and more, so you won't have any problem finding the right ones.
Plus, if counter space is precious, you'll pleased to know that this compact design means you can save space, while the height-adjustable cup stand lets you choose your favourite size.
What the reviews say:
If that wasn't enough, with over 1,000 reviews this coffee machine may be small but customers have proven it definitely is mighty.
"It’s very easy to clean, and also easy to use. Compared to other machines I tried this is the best one so far."
"Similar to other brands, but Tassimo makes it fairly easy for you to recycle the pods. If you’re buying the pods directly from them you can buy the recycling bags at the same time for no extra charge."
"Ease and quickness to make a good quality hot drink. Nothing too fancy but good for a daily coffee. Wish I had one at work, too! Very compact, ideal for a small kitchen."
"Excellent value for money, and when taking into account the £20 vouchers for purchasing coffee it's even better. For the price, there is no competition."
"Having delicious tasting fresh coffee at your fingertips, and now able to recycle the used pods, what's not to like!"
"The coffee is definitely hotter than the last machine and seems quicker to make the coffee. I like the black colour of the machine so it blends in with the kitchen appliances. It's very easy to use."
