The Gift of Time with TASSIMO™

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please see policies for more information.

I think most of you can relate to the need for more time, especially during the busy holiday season. More time to get things done but also to spend more time for your family! We recently got a TASSIMO™ Home Brewing System and I am LOVING how much time it is saving me. When company comes over I can make a perfect cup of cappuccino in minutes without having to drag out a bunch of different contraptions! 

What I love about the TASSIMO™ Brewers is that they feature INTELLIBREW™ technology, which involves scanning a barcode on the T DISC, which makes it provide the perfect cup every time.  So it’s not brewing my espresso like it does the boys’ hot chocolate. Awesome right?! 

I love the variety of beverages they offer as well–from the boys’ favorite Corner Coffeehouse Peppermint Hot Chocolate to a pumpkin spice latte or my favorite King of Joe Espresso and Twinning’s® Earl Grey (yes tea too!).  There is always something for everyone so my guests can make whatever they want!

 Another thing I love is how easy it is to make the perfect cup. My boys are pros at brewing the perfect cup of peppermint hot chocolate! 

Since having our own TASSIMO™ Home Brewing System I’ve wanted to create a fun one on one “date night” picnic with one of my boys. Spending one on one time is something we try to do often. After a normal crazy day I had this all set out on the table when we walked in: everything needed for the perfect backyard night time picnic.

I let him make the drinks using our TASSIMO™ Brewer (I helped with transporting the hot drinks) while I set up a fun fire and card game in the backyard.

A cappuccino for me and (of course) Corner Coffeehouse Peppermint Hot Chocolate for him.

Have you ever had TOASTED marshmallows in your hot chocolate? SO good! 

A perfect and super easy way to spend time with my guy without a lot of preparation. Anything that makes my life easier without sacrificing quality is a plus in my book! Wouldn’t a TASSIMO™ Home Brewing Season make the perfect gift? You can buy your own TASSIMO™ Brewer and TDISCS at Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon as well as the TASSIMO™ website.

  1. A perfect cup is anything enjoyed with my sweet kiddo. I've learned to enjoy the little "perfect" moments while I can, for all too soon he will be grown and gone.

    With my little peanut who loves his own cup of 'coffee' on Saturday mornings and special cocoa on chilly afternoons together ❤️

    I just bought some pumpkin pie coffee creamer that I will add to all the drinks. Drinks and christmas decorating will be on Friday!

  4. What a great tradition to start with the boys.
    Happy Holidays to you & yours.

  5. I like the Pumpkin Spice Latte pods, and for an evening warmer, I like to add an extra flavour boost (and adult kick) with a shot of Pumpkin Spice Liqueur.

  6. A hot beverage block party sounds like the perfect way to connect with neighbors during the cold weather. I love the idea of sharing a fireside drink!

  7. I would love to have a machine that makes my hot drinks and drinks for my boys!

  8. I love all things coffee! I would make a nice cozy cup of java on a cold winters day with a blanket and a good book!

  9. i would love to share a hot chocolate with my precious boy with a cozy blanket to snuggle under!

  10. As a soon to be mom of two I would love to enjoy a hot chocolate during the quietness that only seems to descend when my very active, but incredibly cute toddler is asleep.

  11. I'd get cozy in my favorite sweater and add some white chocolate syrup to my drink 🙂

  12. i will drink lots of holiday drinks, like peppermint mocha… yummmmm

    by inviting all my friends and family over for a fun night of games and coffee and donuts.

    I would unlock the perfect cup by brewing a mocha latte, my absolute favorite!

  15. I will unlock the perfect cup whilst sitting around the dining table sharing stories with family members of the years gone by!

  16. This would make a great gift because you can make so many great drinks at home – no barista!! lana756(at)yahoo(dot)com

  17. What a fun date night! I never thought of toasted marshmallows in hot chocolate, thank you!

  18. Karen Medlin Reply

    I am going to have to try the roasted marshmallows in my cup of coffee, To get me motivated in the mornings, I will unlock the perfect cup of Gevalia Mocha for those peaceful moments in the morning before I wake the family.

    I have not tried the individual brew cups that is all the rage. I can understand the wonder. My husband and I and our kids have diffferent tastes in hot beverages. It would be nice not to have to accommodate with several different pots for water and the ever present dual coffee brewers on my counter. The Tassimo would make our movie nights much less stressful and time consuming. Oh yes, and my kitchen counter would look less cluttered.

  20. I would love to have a mocha or hot chocolate and curl up near the Christmas tree. 🙂

    I would make a warm latte and enjoy it with my family by the fire.

    I would love to unlock the perfect cup at home in my pajamas and not have to run out to a convenient store or a a fancy cafe when i'm craving something special!

  23. i would unlock the perfect cup by cuddling on my couch with my puppy and loving boyfriend in front of the christmas tree. maybe even make our coffee a little irish. 🙂

    I will unlock the perfect cup with a nice mocha latte made with my new tassimo machine. I love coffee and being able to make specialty coffee drinks at home would be a dream come true!

  25. I will unlock the perfect cup this holiday season by adding my family's favorite flavors into our hot drinks, such as cinnamon, cloves, and peppermint. This Tassimo would be perfect for the holidays and entertaining. 🙂

  26. On Christmas morning as a family and relaxed, after all the busy-ness of Christmas Eve worship with a pastor (me), a toddler, and a husband in the choir is over.
