The team at TASSIMO would like to know about Mumsnetters favourite hot drinks.

Heres what TASSIMO have to say: "TASSIMO has all your favourite drinks from the brands you love such as Costa, Cadbury, Kenco, Twinings, Milka, Carte Noire and Suchard. With more than 35 different drinks for you to choose from, including classic Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato, Espresso, Hot Chocolate and Tea, yours will be ready at the push of a button. Its as easy as one, two, tea."

So, what are your favourite hot drinks? Do you like to start your day with a latte or cappuccino? Maybe you drink gallons of tea each day? Or do you keep it very simple with the odd espresso?

Are there any coffee shop drinks you wish you could make at home? Perhaps a Latte Macchiato Caramel? grin Or maybe a hot chocolate topped with marshmallows? Have you ever tried to recreate these at home? Or do you consider them to be an occasional treat? If you're a tea drinker, do you like to stick to your favourite brew or try new varieties?

Whatever your hot drink of choice is, TASSIMO would love to hear about it.

Theyd also love to know whether you have a TASSIMO or whether it has made it onto your wish list. If you have a TASSIMO, tell us what you love about it! Feel free to share any of your TASSIMO recipes from your repertoire.

Hot Ribena, especially when it's cold.

Tea is the first drink of the day but I couldn't get my bum in gear without having a coffee hit shortly after. A cappuccino with good quality coffee is a must to get my brain going. We used to call these, frothy coffees when I was a youngun but it amounts to the same thing. Bring on the Coffee!

Lots of people mention a chai latte, I haven't had one in ages, they're fab!
My favourite hot drink changes often but at the moment I'm into white hot chocolate. On its own at home, or with marshmallows and cream (so naughty!) if I'm out. I also like decaff lattes, and Earl Grey tea. I drink Earl Grey a lot at home.

I don't drink tea or coffee but a cosy ribena is lovely when I've got a cold and a dark hot chocolate is delicious.

Just got my first Tassimo machine. Dh is loving the kenco medium and the americano costa. He can't wait to try the rest of the coffee range.

I'd like a milk one where I can get the shots of caramel like you do in Costa. I'm not keen on your cadbury's chocolate. It's rather bitter unlike their instant drinks.

I also love green tea but your range is green tea and mint. Decaf green tea would be a welcome addition.

Hot Chocolate is a warming treat, Cappuccino after a nice meal or Earl Grey for an everyday cuppa!

I have recently become a stay at home mum and miss the milky coffees that I used to be able to get at work. And I miss my own pay packet and walking past coffee shops on way to / from work. I have never been a tea drinker but love lattes. Costa is my favourite. The free waitrose coffee is ok but doesn't that close. I am dead keen to try the new costa choc orange latte mocha.

Would I be able to make that with a Tassimo?

I nearly bought one of these machines when I had money. So I would dearly love to win one, them I could invite some of the other mums round for coffee. New area, new to playground drop off / pick up. A shiny machine would help me massively wink

DoctorGilbertson Sat 19-Oct-13 08:18:28

you know, I used to be really fussy about coffee. then I moved to a country where the instant coffee available was awful. You know what, after a couple of years I got used to it.

Back in the UK I am not perfectly happy to drink very cheap coffee. Saves me a fortune.

Oh but I do prefer it if teh first coffee is before the kids wake up

BuzzardBirdBloodBath Sat 19-Oct-13 08:11:35

A lovely chai latte, it makes everything seem better smile

arch1e82 Sat 19-Oct-13 08:09:38

I have to have a coffee or two first thing. The first one gulped down in between getting everyone ready and the second in peace after the school run! I usually have a few cups of tea throughout the day but when I'm out I'll have a latte or hot choc. I love hot chocolate with marshmallows but hate whipped cream! My favourite though, when I can get it, is with a shot of orange or mint syrup and a Baileys at Christmas of course! Tassimo is top of my Christmas list (again).

WeAreEternal Sat 19-Oct-13 08:05:58

I spend a small fortune in Starbucks on caramel macchiatos and chai tea lattes.

Bellabeansmum Sat 19-Oct-13 07:55:38

I once had a coconut latte and that was amazing! But my usual is a caramel latte from Costa and my partner has a soya cinnamon latte! Our order is never easy haha! At home I use the 2 in 1 Kenco sachets when they're on a special offer, if not Maxwell House latte sachets as they're £1 a box!!

GillyBillyWilly Sat 19-Oct-13 07:51:23





It tastes like Christmas and fills me with glee!!!!! smile

JJJJH Sat 19-Oct-13 07:43:39

A nice, strong classic English breakfast tea to get the day started and then peppermint tea throughout the day or simple boiling water with lemon and honey in flu season. The child in me loves hot Vimto in winter too :-)

QOD Fri 18-Oct-13 22:59:06

Love love love my tassimo ... Caramel latte yummmmmmmmmmmy .. Wish you did skinny ones though

PODcast2013 Fri 18-Oct-13 22:56:45

Absolutely love coffee, drink several cups a day. Whenever I'm out the house the preference is a white Americano from Costa. Their coffee is divine so it's always a large!

Also enjoy a good Cappucino or Expresso when the opportunity presents itself - not had a Macchiato in ages. It would be great to have a Cadbury's hot chocolate in the evening sometimes but I always forget to purchase it! Husband drinks oodles of tea - all different kinds.

Our house is missing a Tassimo. One day...!

GeekInThePink Fri 18-Oct-13 22:53:02

Oh belo that got choc and brandy- any time we stay at my mum's she makes me one of these of an evening.
Amazing. Just amazing!

GeekInThePink Fri 18-Oct-13 22:52:02

I love my coffee. Normally a skinny latte with an extra shot and extra hot.
I do love a seasonal syrup- pumpkin spice anyone?
I drink some hot chocolate but that's a treat.
Also tea in the afternoon obviously.

I love the idea of a Tassimo, it's the speed that is selling itself to me. It's time consuming to get good coffee at home. Especially when you have younger DC about.
I didn't know there was such a range of pods.

Belo Fri 18-Oct-13 22:46:49

I'm hopeless without a (Yorkshire) tea first thing. Then, another one shortly after. On an ideal day I'll have 2-3 more in the morning, 2-3 in the afternoon. Then from about 5pm onwards I switch to herbals.

But, my favourite hot drink is a hot chocolate with a cheeky splash of brandy in it!

Playfulgilly Fri 18-Oct-13 22:26:48

In an ideal world in the morning I love my Skinny Latte sat relaxing at the table over a lazy breakfast , but in reality a quick espresso before I leave for work while rushing around sorting the children out

Blatherskite Fri 18-Oct-13 22:23:09

I don't drink hot drinks every day but when it's cold and miserable, there is nothing like a hot chocolate. I make my own mix using a Jamie Oliver recipe that's full of real chocolate with a hint of orange, icing sugar to thicken it and spices to really make it tingle. It is lovely.

ChildrenAtHeart Wed 16-Oct-13 23:28:39

Black coffee (Americano). I can't drink instant so I always have my trusty cafetiere. Recently discovered stick packs of millicano and carte noire which I take if visiting. not as good as fresh but better than instant - though at a price

I tried a tassimo classic cappuccino at a friends house, this definitely put a tassimo machine on my wishlist. I love tea and coffee.
