There's no denying it, I do love a good cup of coffee in the morning. It may be the only cup of the day so I like it to be a good one, usually a strong espresso or a cappuccino made with skimmed or almond milk.
When Tassimo offered to send me one of their machines and a few coffee pods I was more than happy to try it out.
I received a Tassimo TAS 20xx in black and after having a quick browse through the instructions it was up and running. Fill the tank with water, pop a pod in, close the compartment, press a button and away you go, simple. For cappuccino's and lattes you can pop a milk pod in and out comes hot frothy milk, genius.
You can even dispense hot water, which is very handy for my cups of herbal tea, much quicker than boiling the kettle.
I was challenged by Tassimo to have a play about with my Tassimo and create a unique drink with a twist, so here's mine, which I have named The Ultimate Caramel Mochaccino...
You will need :
1 x Costa Espresso pod
1 x Costa Milk pod
10g Mini chocolate chunks
Caramel Sauce, chocolate chunks & Cocoa Powder for decoration (optional)
- Insert the Espresso pod into the Tassimo and dispense into a large mug or heatproof glass
- Stir the Rolo's and chocolate chunks into the hot coffee until dissolved
- Insert the milk pod into the Tassimo and dispense into the glass
- Pop the 2 marshmallows into the frothy milk
- Top with squirty cream and decorate with chosen toppings
This is a lovely rich and creamy drink, of which you couldn't drink many, and I would dread to think of the calorie content. Not something that I would drink every day, I think I'll stick to my Espressso's and save these for very very special occasions!
