Bosch introduces the Tassimo 4011 Silver, offering freshly brewed hot drinks at the touch of a button with intelligent LED user interface. With the T4011 you’ve got a fully comprehensive hot drinks machine in a sleek and easy to use design.

  • Flow heater technology means virtually not heat up time
  • 12 varieties including filter coffee, caffe crema, cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso, hot chocolate and tea

Like most Bosch Tassimo machines ease of use and value for money play a big part in their selling point and it’s no different here. This little machine is great at about everything it does, with it’s ease of use and a huge variety of pods (T-DISC’s as they are known) available at a number of stores.

The quality of the drinks this Tassimo produces are of high quality a lot like many similar models. Making the drinks on the Tassimo is simple, with placing the T-DISC into the top compartment and letting the machine read the bar code, which contains all the information on brewing, temperature and water amount. It’s just three simple steps, pick the drink, pop in the disc, and then enjoy your drink.

The Removable water tank is at the rear and usually lasts between 8-10 cups before you need to refill, at lot like a kettle. Cleaning is easy with many of the parts dishwasher safe, these can also be hand washed in a matter of minutes. I’d like to recommend that if you making a lot of hot chocolate drinks regular cleaning of the nozzle would be required as they tend to be thicker. The Bosch website sell spare parts at a reasonable price which is most welcoming.

In all this is great, if you are looking for an instant drink machine this would certainly be one I’d recommend.
