The Beverage Machine In Action!

Friday, May 28th, 2010

A few weeks back, I won a Tassimo Coffee maker! I picked it up from the store just a couple days ago, and have been brewing a whole bunch of delicious beverages for friends and I. Off the bat it doesn’t taste all that great, but add a couple spoonfuls of sugar and lots of people are really surprised and happy with how great it tastes! As somewhat of a coffee conosur, I find the taste fairly mellow compared to a drink made from a real coffee shop. It’s a nice little substitute, but they will never be as good as when they’re made by a human!

Here’s a little video I recorded of the machine in action!

The video also gives you a little tour of where I’ve placed it – as it’s now a part of my workplace! Sometimes a little too easy to just lean over and make a tasty drink!

My last note is that I cheated a little in the video, as to make a Cappuccino as I was doing, you first take a cartridge from the Espresso box (seen next to the machine) and run that through. After that, you put in the cartridge that is seen going in at the beginning of the video.

PS – New video player for my website too!

I Win I Win!

I went down to Safeway the other night and bought a two dollar bag of hamburger buns – when I paid I got handed one of those “Lucky Break” chance to win cards.  I opened it up and had three matching pictures in one of the things.  Now, I never shop at Safeway so I had to flip it over to see what that meant, but it turns out I won a Tassimo Beverage System.  It looks like a specialty coffee maker where you buy these cartridges of the ingredients, and when you put it in the machine it scans the barcode to load the recipe, then uses the cartridge to brew it perfectly for you!

After some recon via the Waddell, it looks like these machines retail $169, and you can buy a package of 16 cartridges for $6.50.  Not a bad deal!

I went down to Safeway today and answered my skill testing question: Multiply 80 by 3; subtract 100; divide by 7; add 43.  It’ll get shipped to the store and I can pick it up in 6 weeks!
