Today, many people are into buying single cup coffee makers. Single cup coffee makers eliminate grinding beans, measuring coffee, handling filters and cleaning up. Keurig believed coffee should be served fresh, one cup at a time, specifically for each individual's taste. In 1998, the Keurig Single Cup Brewing System was created. As this product became popular, many companies started creating their own single cup brewing systems. Although Keurig is the leading single cup brewing system in North America, Bosch's Tassimo has created a great reputation for itself.

The Tassimo and Keurig have some similarities and differences to set it apart from each other.

Tassimo

  • Eco-friendly
  • Removable water reservoir
  • Built-in water filter
  • Uses T DISCS- The Tassimo Brewers read barcoded T Discs to identify specific brewing instructions including exact pressure, temperature, water amount and time duration.
  • One button operation
  • High water pressure
  • Can make coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cappuccinos, lattes
  • Hot or cold drinks
  • Milk-based or espresso based drinks (milk/cream T DISCS)

Keurig

  • Removable water reservoir
  • Can add water filter
  • Use K-Cups
  • Can choose cup size and temperature of drink
  • Can make coffee, tea, hot chocolate
  • Hot or cold drinks
  • Can use coffee grounds

You can brew the perfect cup of coffee with both coffee makers. It just depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a single cup coffee maker that has a control center where you can adjust the cup size and temperature of the drink, then Keurig is the choice for you. Keurig also brews a cup of your favorite beverage in less than one minute, where the Tassimo takes longer to brew a beverage. Keurig Brewers also have a large variety of K-Cups to choose from.
