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.

  4. I would love to have a TASSIMO Brewer in my kitchen! Being able to treat myself to hot lattes every morning would be amazing!

  5. We enjoy peppermint Mochas, hot chocolate, and Hot Chocolate with shnapps during the holidays. Love the bonding time with my kids and family members.

  6. This would be a perfect gift because my husband could have his coffee the way he likes it and I could have my tea. My favorite flavor is the GEVALIA FRENCH VANILLA.

  7. I love these types of coffee and tea makers. Everything is quick and easy. I like that it's waste free in that I don't have left overs to throw away because I made too much to drink. Plus I can make tea at any given moment without having to have another appliance to do so.

  8. i would enjoy making some hot chocolate and relaxing with a good book!

  9. Would love to unlock the exotic flavors of chai tea lattes and hot chocolate, and a special pumpkin spice steaming cup of coffee on a cold afternoon..surrounded by loved ones!

    It has been a tradition that my husband and I have hot chocolate on Christmas morning. I would love to win one of these because my sister had one and when I got to taste it it was the best cup of coffee I have had. I have told my husband how good it was but he needs to taste for himself!! I cannot afford one of these so I would be so happy to win if I do t win hopefully one day I will get one for Christmas! Thank you for a chance to win! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

  12. My perfect cup is a classic medium roast, no fancy flavors, with sweetener and cream.

    I would unlock some hot chocolate for me and my wonderful hubby.

  16. I would unlock the perfect cup this holiday season with a peppermint mocha!!

  17. My perfect cup of coffee is the one I share with my family. My children are all adults and have their own homes, so when we spend time together it's always special.

    I've been putting cool whip and sprinkles in my coffee for a festive season.

  19. Early in the morning when the house is quiet and I can enjoy a moment to myself before the craziness begins.

  20. My son likes to have his own cup of coffee with me in the morning. It is our time to sit down and chat, just the two of us. This time of year we like to add a little bit of Horizon egg nog. Yummy. For the family, we enjoy hot chocolate in the evening and play games. It is fun to add mini marshmallows and grab a candy cane off our candy cane tree:-) Then we all play games.

  21. Hot chocolate for my grandkids and a nice cup of tea for me. Then curl up on the sofa and watch a great family movie.

  22. I love hot chocolate with my kids after we have outside in the snow! I'd love to win this!

  23. My perfect cup will be unlocked with my kids as we watch movies and eat popcorn with our hot chocolate!
