Bosch Tassimo TAS1002GB Happy Coffee Machine : Easy set up

I am delighted with my bosch tassimo happy coffee machine, compact and so simple to use and makes a great cup of coffee. One complaint instructions are in pictures which are very poor, l did eventually realise most of ones questions are in the troubleshooting pages which are in english hooray . One factor that took me a long time to fathom out is that you fill the water container but before you insert the pod you must not only plug the machine into your power point but the power switch must be switched on then place the pod into the machine if machine is not receiving power it will not perform as it needs to read the bar code on the pod to produce the drink you require. To most people they would have realised why l was having a problem but to people like me who have not been born into this technological era it’s difficult.

This range is great in general. Leaving 4 stars only because i got used product in broken box, but once replacement arrived i was very happy with it.

Best coffee/tea machine i have ever owned. So simple to operate & to clean. Just make sure you get the milk t-discs or you will have to put milk in yourself.

Very pleased with machine nice price. Looks good and makes a good drink ( although i’ve only had coffee and had chocolate) used about 10 times so far and no problems easy to use. Not cleaned it yet but looks easy to do as well. For the price would recommend.

Bought this after buying my dad and his partner one for christmas. Great machine, would recommend πŸ™‚.

I move to this machine from dolce gusto. Tassimo pods are so much nicer although machine is not as simple. It’s hard to judge when to press stop as it carries on pouring for few seconds then it steams.

This was bought for my husband. . The coffee drinker in the household. He gave 4 because his only criticism was ( apparently) that you cannot add extra water. Otherwise, he was very pleased.

A great machine makes great drinks.

The tassimo system has some excellent choices of great coffees. This is great little coffee maker, which, while it does not have all the features of a more expensive machine still makes an awesome coffee. It warms up fastit creates great drinksyou can buy the different drinks at supermarketsit is automatic and brews each drink perfectly as it β€˜reads’ the podit indicates when it need descalinghoweveri would prefer a larger water tank, as it needs filling oftenit also feels a little delicate, and slightly β€˜plasticy’.

Great machine, but i was delivered a red and white one. My wife is an ex-nurse (blood and bandages), so wasn’t too impressed.

Nice colour, works very well, good price.

I brought this for my mum as she always likes nice coffee. I chose this one because it looked simple to use. Despite being simple to use makes great coffee, and is easy to clean. It holds enough water for maybe 3 cups (depending on drinks chosen of course). Quick easy nice coffee about sums it up.

Love this new style , better frother on it , the one i bought was from else where cost , 29.

I can say that all the points mentioned in the promotional information for this coffee machine are absolutely spot on, i am very pleased with it and the drinks range it can prepare and would have no hesitation recommending it to others. That is the short/summation of my view of this product but i can and will elaborate on my reasons as follows. The coffee machine itself is very compact, i was pretty surprised at this, it takes up very little space on the kitchen counter or in a storage cupboard. I had read that it was compact but did not guess just how compact until i received the box and initially thought i had been supplied with a different model given just how space saving it is. I do own a dolce gusto machine which takes up roughly the same amount of space but which is ‘taller’, this bosch ‘happy’ coffee machine is smaller all around. It is subjective but i think it aesthetically has a very nice design/appearance too, it is black, has a nice ‘shiney’/buffed finish and i think would look well in most kitchens and possibly even a study, reception room or ‘good room’ depending upon your tastes. I do think that this machine is a little less intuitive to use that most, only slightly, as it is possible to work out how it operates being a pretty standardized pod coffee machine. However, this is pretty much besides the point as some great instructions are provided with the machine. There are two separate booklets provided with the machine, one is print and black and white outline illustrations, the other is a series of complete use and care instructions, all pictures. Also, the water tank has an insert card, which had on both sides illustrated directions, the same as those in the booklet and i liked this as it could not possibly be overlooked as you need to remove it in order to open the and fill the water tank.

Although i got this for review i all ready have use of one – identical other than colour in my office – this is used daily, probably for 30 drinks and maybe more – the great thing about tassimo is that the capsules are bar-coded so you get the exact amount of water your drink requires – no messing. In the office we have loads of different drinks – i stick to costa americano and kenco xl americano – both deliver a very fresh black coffee – i don’t like the latte packs as the milk tastes odd – prefer to add fresh to the black coffee. Only downside of this model is the water holder is only 1 litre – so approx 3 or 4 drinks – but dead easy to fill and dead easy to clean and descale using the supplied cleaning disc. This new machine is operating just like the existing one and replaces a 5 year old bosch machine which was still functioning but which was literally worn out. For pain-free black coffee – these are hard to beat. Buy the capsules on amazon subscribe and save and they are really good value – just wish they were recyclable.

There are a host of different tassimo machines and we’ve got through a few over the years. We started off with quite an expensive one that had a large tank but ended up using smaller machines. We tend to use tassimo for mugs of coffee rather than for say espresso or lungos. We have another machine for that. This one is the first to have a tank on the side rather than the back and it is in a more convenient position and slots into place like rather than sliding in from above. There is no handle on the tank. Instead there is a grip at the top. Capacity is 3 normal mugs which is fine really for us. If you have not had coffee machines before, tassimo pods can only be sourced from authorised suppliers unlike other styles. Simple to use and generally pretty good coffee but not as much choice as some other brands can offer.

Bosch Tassimo TAS1002GB Happy Coffee Machine, Plastic Black

I did a lot of research before deciding on the tassimo happy, and i am so pleased i made this choice. First of all its so easy to put the bits together, and it doesn’t take up too much space on the worktop. Of the standard depth of a worktop, its about half the length. I got the cream one and so far the drip tray has been very easy to keep clean, no stains or anything. The nozzle and pod holder are very very easy to remove to clean and put back in. I recommend you register the product with bosch straight away as i got two Β£10 vouchers towards coffee purchases. You do need to spend Β£30 plus with postage, though it becomes free after Β£30 anyway, buying 6 varieties and descaling tablets, it only cost me Β£23. I also chose a pack of 4 coffees off amazon so i have lots to chose from. One thing i have found, and was generally mentioned anyway, the cup sizes aren’t too big.

So happy i chose this one for my very first coffee machine. Easy to use & not too big to fit on the side in my small kitchen. I also chose it as it as the best variety of coffee flavours – i’m addicted to the caramel one can’t wait to try the new gingerbread one. Just one little moan in that it doesn’t fill my mugs, so i usually top up with water & milk, but no problem.

Bought to use at work as the normal coffees get a tad boring after a while.

We have owned a bosch tassimo vivy 2 for over a year and it has given sterling service. In fact, we tend to use it constantly rather than making a cafetiere like we used to. This happy entry level tassimo machine is very similar to the vivy. It’s compact, so has a nice small footprint, important for us as we don’t have a lot of free workspace. It is plasticky, but most things are nowadays. Using it is simple, fill up the water container, enough for a couple of mugs, to the max fill level. Pop in a tassimo cap, we are fond of the l’or xl coffee capsules, press t he button and within a minute or so you have your drink. The only downer really is the temperature of the drinks. I like mine piping hot and this, like the vivy, makes them hot for not too hot, so i tend to stick mine in the microwave for 15 seconds or so. This is a basic model, so i didn’t expect a temperature controller, but something worth thinking about.

Should have bought one years ago.

Straight from the box onto the side and plug in. There is little to no installation with this coffee machine. We looked around for the best prices for pods in advance of receiving this. There seems to be lots of offers on the pods in different places and it works out quite good prices,. There is so many drinks available from different coffees, milky hot chocolate and tea etc. Just add the water to the tank and off you go. The drinks are easy to make and very enjoyable. What more can i say, its a good price for a nice machine which does not take up tons of side space and a very quick and easy to make hot drink of coffee/latte/espresso.

I bought this tassimo happy to replace an earlier model which started leaking after around 18 months of light use. This version looks somehow cheaper and less substantial, the one advantage is that the water tank is easier to take in and out and fill. The selector switch is a bit of a step back in that it’s a multi-function button which isn’t as obvious as individual switches/warning lights but it works okay. The tassimo brand offers a wide range of hot drinks including coffees (of many types), teas, hot chocolates etc. Many with ties to brands like costa and cadbury’s etc. The drinks come as cartridges or ‘discs’ and drinks require one or two discs which are widely available. The results are usually very tasty, our only reservation is that each disc seems mainly made of plastic. In summary, this machine works well, is reasonably easy to use and produces tasty drinks but it looks cheaper than its predecessor.

Will use again i give them an 10+ for customer care thanks.

Great machine, works well and produces a good cup of coffee each time.

Really happy with the product, small and compact, coffee tastes good, next day delivery, its a simple machine, if you want a very expensive coffee taste, this is not the machine for you, but for the price, the style, and size fits nicely in your kitchen. And does the job, seller sent it out fast too. Also good to see it was not in lots of amazon boxes, which am hoping is now amazon limiting packaging, not reception taking it out. We should all be pushing this with amazon, it uses to much packaging when it is not required. We can carry are own items mostly. Unless its a lot of products.

Handy for a variety of hot drinks.
