I’ve got 2 tassimo’s – one at home and one at work. Does much the same as the Nespresso and pods are similar price, but Tassimo (and Costa if you’ve got one of their cards) regularly do special offers to get the machine for £30 with £20 of coffee vouchers included. Couldn’t really say no to that!
Another +1 for Nespresso, but they’re not cheap to run. That’s the only reason we switched to a bean to cup, but the latest ones are very portable. Another plus is that you can get models that don’t have milk run through them so there’s barely any maintenance at all. If you want a cappuccino, get their Aeroccino (sp?) machine that does a great job and again, is pretty compact and easy to live with.
Love my tassimo, plenty of different types of coffee to try. Got loads left to go. I wanted a nespresso but the fact they only really do espresso put me off, even the tassimo lattes are pretty decent, no single origin flat white but a decent for so little effort.
