I wake up, go to the kitchen, make my coffee, and THEN start my day. I even hold off on going pee until the coffee has started. You know, in case I get interrupted in the bathroom by my kids and get sidetracked from making coffee afterwards.
The coffee obsession started in high school. Helped me stay awake after a long night of partying... er... studying (hi Mom!) so that I could function at work on the weekends.
Then it really did serve as a way to function after a long night of studying in college. I spent many a night at the local Living Room cafe right around the corner from college sipping coffee and learning the latest study on the human mind.
So when individual coffee brewers first started to come out on the market I was one of the first to pick one up. But it jut didn't quite fulfill my needs and I switched back to the drip pot version.
That is until I saw the great options Bosch had with their Tassimo series. Added bonus? Gevalia, my favorite brand of coffee, had many variations of their coffees in t-disc form!
I received my Tassimo T20 a few weeks ago and since then I haven't looked back! It's so simple and easy to use, plus I'm able to make coffee, tea, and hot chocolate all with one device. I can even make iced tea for my husband!
And with Bosch's barcode system, my Tassimo knows exactly how to make my coffee every time!
I love the option of purchasing regular 8oz coffee t-discs or large 12oz coffee t-discs. So in the morning if I choose to have a larger cup instead of making two cups back to back (like when I'm on the go and using my Creative Travel Mug) I don't have to select a certain option on the Tassimo.
I simply turn the Tassimo on, add my t-disc, and place the size cup I need in the well. As soon as I turn on the machine it starts going and the aroma of that amazing cup of joe fills the room. And if I've purchased a bolder brew I can easily wait till it's done brewing and push the button again. There's a 20 second window after it's done brewing to add a bit more hot water to the cup.
This weekend we headed over to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to pick up a few more t-discs since my Amazon order didn't come in yet (and I knew I'd want coffee on Monday morning). I was so excited to see the selection they carried and quickly picked up another Gevalia favorite. I wasn't able to find the large cup t-discs but the ones I did go home with were the perfect gap filler.
And the best part about purchasing my t-discs from Bed, Bath, and Beyond was being able to use my $5 off $15 coupon AND my 20% off coupon on top of one another! How awesome is that?
With Amazon's Subscribe and Save I can save on my t-disc purchases as well by simply signing up to receive a shipment every month or so. You can save up to 15% on each purchase and get free auto-shipping.
If you're looking for a great hot beverage system I highly suggest checking out Bosch's line of Tassimio home brewing systems. Not only will you be left with cup after cup of amazing coffee, you'll spend no time preparing it!
And I absolutely love the option of changing out the color of my Bosch with a simple switch of the Bosch Tassimo Brewer Insert.
