Poor replacement for t65
I just received this as a replacement for the faulty t65. I'm considering keeping the broken one. The t55 doesn't have a water tank with a handle/cover which is very convenient if you have to reach over to the back of the brewer, no lcd with clear info, no lighstand, no descaling. I'd recommend waiting until bosch thinks of something better than this

I love my Tassimo T55
This coffee maker is simple to use, easy to clean and makes great lattes and cappuccinos. When I was shopping, I thought this was a splurge item but I use it every day. I am so happy that I made this purchase.

Not as good as the T65
I had a T65 which died after 3 years. When I went to replace it, I saw it wasn't available anymore (or so I thought) and I bought the T55. I am very disappointed with it compared to the T65.
No LED lighting
The display is no longer a readable LCD, it's a multi function symbol display
The water tank is a joke, to remove, fill and replace
Seem cheaply made feel
I don't know why Tassimo moved their T65 model to it's "professional" series. My advise, buy the T65 (probably have to order somewhere) over the T55.
Lastly ... Tassimo, you sell several nice coffee mugs (the clear double walled glass and the white ceramic with rubber holder) BUT, they are too tall to fit with the cup stand in it's lowest position and too low (splatter mess) if you take it out like you were using a tall travel container.
My solution, epoxy 2 hockey pucks together and remove the holder and use the pucks .... perfect height.
My disappointment with the T55 is pushing me towards the Keurig Vue when the T55 dies.

Love this machine!
I shopped for a one-cup coffee maker for quite some time and saw Tassimo's ad in Bed, Bath and Beyond's flyer. It was very affordable for me so I purchased it. I must say I really love it. I usually only have coffee in the morning, but with the Tassimo, I can have a relaxing cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon without having to "brew" more than I need. My favorite flavors are the medium roast morning coffees and the chai tea. I only wish that local grocery stores offered a larger selection like they do with the other "preferred" brand.
