Tassimo Kenco Coffee Taste Test

25 May 2013

I first fell in love with Tassimo on Easter Sunday after my niece offered to make me a special coffee.
I was so impressed that the following week I treated myself to the Tassimo T40. Now I am well and truly hooked. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a taste tester for the TassimoKenco range. Joy! My usual coffee is the Kenco Columbian instant, so I was intrigued to see how it compared to the Tassimo range.

Taste Test 1 Kenco 100% Columbian
I found this coffee very aromatic with quite a strong flavour. This is a very 'good morning' coffee. When I drink it during the day I prefer to top it up with a little more water, as I generally prefer my coffee a little weaker. It also has a frothy top which I quite like. My jar of instant coffee has now taken a back shelf.

Taste Test 2 Kenco Caffe Crema
 Firstly, this is not a creamy coffee in the ‘milky’ sense as I’d first thought. Am I the only one who thought that it was? It is black coffee with a lot of froth on top. It has a rich silky smooth taste with a delicious aroma, which comes from the Arabica beans. I found this blend slightly milder tasting than the Columbian and didn’t feel the need to top up with extra water. Taste great any time of day. Love, love, love it!

Taste Test 3 Kenco Medium Roast
This is an aromatic smooth tasting coffee, but not quite to my taste. I just didn't like it. 

After giving each coffee a fair trial, the Caffe Crema is the sure winner! This deliciously smooth tasting coffee is definitely my new favourite. I think I've got my daughter slightly hooked, after getting her to join me in the taste testing and she also agrees that Caffe Crema is her first choice.

If you love your coffee strong then the Columbian is a very good choice, as it is a great tasting coffee! Much tastier than the instant. As for the Medium roast I think I'll give it a miss..
Well I can safely say that I am a coffee addict!!!.

Have a fab weekend!

  1. The caffe crema is certainly the best tasting!

  2. I've had my Tassimo coffee machine for six months now. Oh the joy! I tend to go for an espresso or a cappuccino. Lovely post!
