Cafe Style Coffee…From Your Kitchen: Tassimo Coffee System

[ 0 ] October 15, 2009 |

If someone told me, say, five years ago, people would actually leave their homes for the express purpose of grabbing a great cup of java at their local/favourite cafe, I would have said they were nuts.  Well, that’s exactly what has happened, no?  To top it off, we pay upwards of $3 to $4 for the experience.  It seems we may be coming full circle now.

Last week, I was invited to the beautiful home of design guru Nik Manojlovich.  He was incredibly charming.  So was his puppy, Dennis, following me around everywhere (the dog, that is).  Too cute.

Anyway, Nik was a terrific host, serving my cameraman and me the Best. Apple. Pie. Ever.  Sadly, he would not share the recipe but did let us in on a great entertaining tip, introducing us to his “new best friend” situated next to the dessert – a Tassimo coffee maker. Very clever…

I had the pleasure of trying this out at my brother’s house last Christmas (a present for his wife).  It was quitetassimo the attention-getter as everyone lined up to make their special concoction.

This latest experience was no different.  We huddled around the Tassimo as it did its thing, preparing very smooth cups of coffee.  Note, this luxury does not come cheap.  It is around $200.00 .  However, if you want or need to cut back on your gourmet coffee expeditions or do a fair bit of entertaining at home, this really is a fantastic addition to your kitchen and will pay for itself in due time.

While the Tassimo was one topic of conversation at Nik’s place, he also gave us great ideas and tips on how to entertain for the holidays.  We’ll get that video up soon.  Meantime, if you want more information about the coffee maker or want to win one, check out http://www.kraftcanada.com/tassimo/home.html Contest closes October 16th, 2009.  Nik will also give a live demonstration on the internet on November 7th, 2009.

Happy coffee making :)
