Tassimo Brewbot Review and Giveaway!

Last week I received a new Tassimo Brewbot to review! Not only do I have one to review, but I also have one to giveaway to one of you! Read on to find out how to win.

The Brewbot is an “advanced brewing machine programmed to make seven different varieties of beverages”. The unit is basically a single serve coffee machine with smarts. Simply enter a T-Disc into the Brewbot and hit the big button to start. In a short amount of time (usually 30 seconds or less) you’ll have a fresh cup of coffee (or one of the other 7 varieties) ready to go!

At first I honestly wasn’t sure if this is something that I would use on a daily basis. Well it didn’t take long for me to come to a conclusion. I’ve been using the Brewbot daily since it arrived. I find myself making a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. In fact I typically start the Brewbot, then make a regular pot of coffee, and my Brewbot cup is done before I can even get the regular pot started. I like it so much in fact that I’ve already gone out and purchased more T-discs to try them out!

Overall the Brewbot is a really great device and one that I’ll be using for a long time to come. If you want to win a Brewbot simply leave a comment below, it’s as easy as that! I’ll pick a random winner at the end of the week. The only requirement is you must have a US based mailing address.

I want to thank Tassimo and Lara Kulpa (@larakulpa) for giving me the opportunity to have this giveaway. Below is a video showing the Brewbot in action:
