Crafting the perfect cup of coffee takes more than having the right coffee ground and a coffee machine. It takes skill and practice, but what if you have the option to be able to consistently make delicious coffee (and more!) with a single press of a button? Such convenience is available thanks to POD coffee makers!

Taking the guesswork out of coffee preparation, these machines use PODs (or the equivalent). These cartridges already have pre-measured ingredients. Just add water and the POD coffee makers will automatically craft brews with spot-on accuracy. What more, certain machines are even capable of producing coffee blends not available in ordinary coffee makers.

High-tech in design, these coffee machines are kitchen eye-candy whose sole purpose is to deliver great-tasting coffee. The following POD coffee makers from Hamilton Beach, De Longhi, Mr. Coffee, and Bosch are feature-packed and will open up a world of coffee flavors bringing coffeehouse taste and variety to your home.

4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

The Bosch Tassimo T55 makes the preparation of coffee shop-approved beverages fast and easy, albeit in a high-tech way. As with most Pod coffee makers, this unit utilizes cartridges specifically called T Discs. These are the key to the variety of delicious beverages that can be made using the Bosch Tassimo.

Unlike normal cartridges, the T Discs are barcoded with data. This barcode system once identified by the unit allows the machine to setup optimal coffee-brewing settings for each certain type of drink. No fuss, no complications and perfect coffee one after another.

The unit is fast and efficient featuring instant heat-up so there is very minimal wait time for your coffee as well as low energy-consumption. It also has a noise-reduction system which is perfect for early morning coffee preparation. The Bosch Tassimo T55 Beverage System and Coffee Brewer offers delicious cooffee house quality drinks with a touch of a button.

Key to the unit’s simplicity is the use of Melitta coffee pods. The unit comes with 8 pods of various flavors. These pods take the guessing game out of coffee preparation. Just pop one of these cartridges and prepare to enjoy a nice-tasting cup of freshly brewed coffee. You could also opt to use your own coffee grounds using a separately purchased filter.

Conclusion

 
POD coffee makers make the routine of preparing your coffee very effortless. The machines are very similar design – what we like the most is the Bosch Tassimo T55 POD Coffee Maker.

Tassimo provides more specialty tastes such as Cappuccinos, Lattes, and Hot Chocolates. The machine also automatically applies the correct settings for each drink by scanning the barcode. The Tassimo Coffee T-discs are affordable to buy online. After using the machine for a while you won’t regret choosing it over a Keurig machine.
