Tassimo Charmy Coffee Machine by Bosch, Black

Product information

The Bosch TAS5542GB Tassimo coffee maker ensures that a delicious hot beverage is only a touch of a button away!

Finished in an elegant black, this Bosch machine uses Tassimo T-Discs to identify the drink selected through unique bar code technology. It then adjusts water, brewing time and temperature in their perfect measurements to provide you with a satisfying drink.

And there’s no waiting around either! There is virtually no heat-up time thanks to innovative flow heater technology.

The large selection of drinks can be manually adjusted. Your choice includes:

  • Freshly brewed coffee
  • Creamy espresso
  • Cappuccino
  • Latte macchiato
  • Hot chocolate
  • Or perhaps you just fancy a good old-fashioned cup of tea!
To make things even easier, the removable 1.6L water tank is easy to refill, while a useful height adjustable stand allows a variety of cup and mug sizes - perfect for drinking coffee out of your favourite mug.

The automatic cleaning and descaling program, as well as dishwasher-safe parts, ensures this machine is effortless to maintain. A low energy consumption means it’ll be friendlier on your pocket too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A fantastic present! I bought this for my parents at Christmas. They absolutely LOVE it! They have been inviting friends round for a cuppa just so they can offer them a range of beverages!! It is very easy to use and makes a whole range of gorgeous hot drinks. 26 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by TA S5542GB CoffeeMaker- Good Value for money Does as described. tasty hot coffee. Slightly disappointed by the UHT tasting milk, but otherwise pleased with its performance. Easy to clean, just the milk puncture point after it has dispensed needs to be dabbed to avoid build-up. Water tank refilling is straightforward. Delivery/Pickup was up to usual JL standard - quick & efficient. Capuccino pods good for weight-watchers - low fat and energy 23 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tassimo This machine is absolutely brilliant for a coffee or tea lover. It is so easy to use and would recommend 22 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Cappuccino maker I purchased the coffee machine as a present for my wife who loves cappuccino's. However, although frothy pictures of coffees are displayed on the box and on the Costa capsules, the amount of froth produced was small and virtually disappeared once any chocolate was sprinkled on. Do not purchase if you want a frothy cappuccino. 19 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb little machine I purchased this Tassimo at John Lewis in Cambridge a few days before Christmas. My daughter had been on about getting one for ages and this seemed a really good price, particularly as it also came with a £20 voucher towards the pods. We've used it daily since purchase and I'm really pleased with it. Its easy to use, simple and functional & easy to keep clean. Compact on the kitchen work surface and so much better for when you want a 'real' coffee without making a whole jug full! Highly recommended machine, which would only be made better if it came with a small supply of pods to get you started. 11 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect coffee I am so glad I bought this machine as it delivers quick easy delicious coffee, so much better than other manufacturers machines I've previously tried. This model has a built in Brita water filter and they supply one Brita cartridge with machine which is great if you live in a hard water area like me. I don't know if it is a limited offer but with mine I got a voucher offer of £20 off my first coffee discs order too which is a bonus. 04 January 2014
