Every true coffee lover prefers only the freshest drink with a natural taste. Unfortunately, in the morning there is not always time to make a cup of espresso in a Turk. And to compare coffee from a vending machine with a drink brewed by one’s own hand is simply impossible. After all, he has not the same taste, and no smell. In order to be able to drink a cup of coffee at any time of the day, completely not caring about the features of its preparation, capsule coffee machines were created.
Purpose of capsules (T-disks)
Not each of us knows how to brew delicious espresso in a cezve. Therefore, capsules (T-disks, "Tassimo" -discs) are an invention, thanks to which you can forget about preparing the drink yourself. The only disadvantage of this invention is its purpose exclusively for capsular coffee machines.
The principle of preparation is based on the machine receiving a task for cooking using a special barcode on the capsule. In this case, the temperature, pressure for cooking, and the volume of servings are regulated. A coffee machine working with Tassimo capsule coffee is a technique that can receive instructions in the form of a bar code, and then make the preparation on its own.
Now in capsules you can buy a large number of types of coffee. For long-term preservation of coffee aroma, all capsules are hermetically sealed. Each package contains several capsules. Therefore, when you open the general package, all the boxes in it remain closed.
Description of capsules
Capsules "Tassimo" are very convenient to use. Each plastic box contains the amount of coffee beans needed to prepare the drink. As mentioned above, each capsule has a separate barcode with a prescription task for the machine. There is also a plug. The materials of which the packaging is made are absolutely environmentally friendly.
The fragmentation of the capsules is an indisputable advantage over coffee sold in one common package. Capsules for the Tassimo coffee machine are not affected by environmental factors: odors, light and humidity. To store coffee capsules you need to find a dark, dry place.
The capsules contain well-fried and carefully chopped high-quality grains - 100% Arabica. This type of coffee is used to make the most aromatic, tasty and beautiful drink.
The appearance of coffee in capsules
Such packaging is one of the latest developments in the coffee industry. The precursor to capsule coffee is compressed ground coffee in tablets. This option is also very convenient for saving time. But the drawback of coffee in tablets is paper packaging, which does not protect it from the rapid loss of its own aroma and absorption of extraneous odors.
Unlike pressed coffee, the capsule is sealed under vacuum. The packaging is foil, as well as plastic or food grade polymer. Therefore, the natural characteristics of the drink with this packaging are preserved in the best way.
The very first capsule coffee was made in 1998 and sold in Switzerland. Even then, the novelty earned the approval of consumers. Now Tassimo capsules continue to receive numerous positive reviews.
Reusable Capsules - T-Capsules
Reusable capsules "Tassimo" were created for the quickest and most simplified preparation of a delicious drink. Now, the consumer is only required to determine the choice of the type of coffee and any additional components at its discretion.
Judging by the reviews, the person who begins to use the capsule is faced with the following statements:
- The capsule coffee machine is not suitable for using ordinary coffee.
- Capsules of different manufacturers do not fit together.
- All the time, buying new capsules with coffee is expensive for the wallet.
Therefore, according to reviews, you can pour separately purchased coffee into capsules. The only mandatory criterion when purchasing future content is fine grinding.
Reusable use is convenient and allows you to save property. Eliminates the need to purchase another pack of coffee each time. Judging by the reviews, each capsule can be used more than 30 times, but less than 100.
Bosch coffee machines
Bosch Tassimo coffee machines have been extremely popular in Europe for several years. But the beginning of the supply of this kitchen equipment to Russia was laid only at the end of 2011.
Model cars are delivered to the Russian Federation:
- TAC20 (white and red).
- TAC40 (black, silver, red, orange).
- TAC65 (anthracite color).
All of them are identical in characteristics, and their main differences are in the control system. At TAC20, it was performed simply, and at TAC65 - at an advanced level. There is also a model for offices and small cafes: Tassimo Professional.
The operation of Bosch Tassimo coffee machines is somewhat different from the work of their capsule counterparts. Each coffee capsule (called a T-disk) has 2 barcodes, one of them is for a coffee machine. You only need to install the T-disk and start the cooking process. After the coffee has been prepared, the user can make a change in the strength of the drink by adding water to it.
Capsules for the Bosch coffee machine
The Kraft Foods company makes capsules for the Bosch Tassimo coffee machine. There are capsules on sale in the Russian Federation with which you can prepare drinks:
- Latte macchiato.
- Cafe-cream coffee (medium strength).
- Caramel latte macchiato.
- Hot chocolate,
- Tea (only for the Tassimo Professional coffee machine).
A wider range of types of coffee can still be bought only abroad. Judging by the reviews, all the drinks are very tasty. Tea made after coffee has some coffee aroma. Therefore, people advised using the coffee machine only to prepare the latter.
When the drink provides for the presence of a milk component, for example, as in latte or cappuccino, in preparation, 2 capsules must be used consistently: coffee and milk. Capsules "Tassimo" with milk are not just a solution made from dried milk and water. They contain exclusively ultrafiltered and concentrated milk. The corresponding technology by which fresh milk is processed was created by Kraft Foods employees specifically for the Tassimo project.
Capsules "Tassimo" - is not only a novelty of coffee fashion, but also a very convenient and useful invention. Modern coffee machines are designed to minimize the steps that need to be taken when making coffee. A person who does not have the skills to properly brew a perfectly tasty drink using such capsules is able to easily prepare stunning espresso. To do this, you only need to press the machine button once.
