And then along comes the Tassimo. There are so many individual cup brewers out there that initially I didn't think much of it, until they signed the exclusive contract with Tim Hortons. So with any Tassimo brewers, now you can buy the Tim Hortons' t discs and brew a perfect cup of store-fresh Tims at home. Except that we are a divided family: I am more of a Starbucks drinker (which is not available on Tassimo) while hubs love Tims, just like I am a Pepsi person and he is a Coke lover.
Anyhow, upon reading more about the Tassimo brewers, and since we both work from our home office when we are not out for meetings, I am convinced that this one-of-a-kind barcode-reading brewer would save Anthony commute time of getting his morning and afternoon caffeine fix. It just so happened that Sears decided to put it on sale at $79.88, almost 50% off. Sears is the only place (based on my research) online that sells the T20 in white at that price. I picked up ours from a Sears store and it comes in grey. I figure grey would work better with our kitchen because it would disappear into the backspash (and I want it to be invisible :)).
Our new Tassimo T20 Brewer: a great inexpensive starter model to try out Tassimo (and get hooked).
The water tank is in the back so from the front it looks super compact, but it is pretty deep for a coffee maker.
I took a sip out of Anthony's cup and it's awesome (I didn't say that to his face of course). The sale at Sears is on until December 13. If you register your Tassimo before December 24, you will receive a voucher to two free packages of t discs. Pretty good deal if you ask me.
