We went through 3 tassimo machines and at the end of last year I got fed up with the cost of pods and decided to go for the Nespresso. Last month we went back to Tassimo. Personally I got bored with having to do the milk everytime as the pods were all basically expresso size. It was clearly cheaper as no-one else would ever use the machine. Rest of the family just didn't like it.

The pods for tassimo are definately more expensive. The new machine did give 2 x 10 vouchers again so thats been handy. Coffee use is up again in the house which is both a good sign and bad thing at the same time.

I bought the basic Nespresso in an AO sale 114 plus 50 worth of free pods... however I've been disappointed to find that it doesn't produce very hot coffee (we drink lattes),

Do you have the Aeroccino?
I drink lattes and cappuccinos and mine are always hot

I like my Tassimo machine and my favourite is Costa Americano with the milk pods. I don't drink coffee that often (I usually drink green tea) so the machine has been going strong for nearly 2 years which I believe is quite a long time for a Tassimo.

My mum swapped from the Tassimo to Dolce Gusto and finds the pods are more expensive and she prefers the Costa Americano Tassimo pods. She's put a Tassimo on her Christmas list

think ours is living on borrowed time then, trying to work out how old it is and pretty sure it's at least 8 years old.

My mums first one lasted years and then she got through 1 a year after that! That's why she changed machines. She put it down to the reduction in price meaning a reduction in production quality - they're usually half price on offer.

my mum's had about 3 in the same time, come to think of it. We did have the best model at the time I seem to think but bought it on a really good offer. Think we'll just keep going with it until I see a decent offer but I'll prepare for it not to last this long!
