Here’s a flash giveaway – only one week to enter this one peeps! Drawing for a winner on the 10th!
Let’s face it – I don’t get out a lot. I’m a stay at home mom, equate a trip to the grocery store as “getting fresh air” and often apply a full face of makeup to rake leaves – simply because I want to use up my mascara before it goes bad.
I’m pretty happy with the trade off, however, if it means that I get to spend all my time with my two little guys. But what I miss most… what I really find it hard to live without… is the daily trip to Starbucks. A short mild in a tall cup. A latte (insert fancy customization here). Even the ever-cheerful, slightly over caffeinated employees who always spell my name “Lina.”
At first, I thought it would be a long time before I once again experienced the daily rush of a Starbucks’ brew, until I received the Bosch TASSIMO Home Brewing System. Yes, you can purchases Starbucks T DISCS, and yes, it tastes like the real thing – in the comfort of your own home!
The TASSIMO features:
– Innovative barcode technology
– Mavea MAXTRA water filtration system
– Removable 1.8 litre water tank
– Innovative lift cup stand
– Noise reduction system
– Immediately ready to brew drinks
– No taste transfer between drinks
– Low energy consumption
– Fully automatic one-button operation
– Automatic cleaning and descaling program
I love that I can enjoy an authentic café experience without leaving my kitchen. I can be in the mood for a coffee, tea, latte, cappuccino, espresso or hot chocolate – really, whatever I please – and it will be brewed instantly, piping hot and incredibly delicious. The TASSIMO is also a MUST if you do a lot of entertaining – with no taste transfer between drinks, you can be your own barista!
It’s all down to the T DISC. Brands like Starbucks trust TASSIMO with their coffee because it’s brewed right, every time. T DISCs have been developed to contain the correct proportion of coffee to water, so you can enjoy rich, full taste with every cup.
“While other single serve coffee makers treat all drinks the same way, TASSIMO understands that each beverage requires a specific brew process. Using barcode technology, the system reads every T DISC individually and adjusts the temperature, water volume and brew time. This way every coffee, tea, latte and cappuccino is made exactly the way it’s meant to be – perfect.”
Translation: no settling for stale grounds or coffee that’s been hanging around all day – and for a third of the price of a coffee-house order (just $0.58 per cup when purchased from Costco), you’ll swear off drive-thrus as well.
Not a fan of Starbucks? That’s okay, because you can also enjoy goodies from The NABOB Coffee Company, Maxwell House, Twinings, Suchard and more. TASSIMO T DISCS can be found at many popular retailers nationwide, and do keep your eyes peeled for promotions like Future Shop’s recent buy one, get one free deal on Starbucks House and Café Verona T DISCS.
