Tassimo Coffee Machines History

If you don’t know about the Tassimo capsule system for coffee machines and hot beverage machines, you are welcome to first read a bit about it in our Tassimo capsule system post.

If you already know about Tassimo you may have encounted two types of machines for it online and wondered which you should go for. I am talking about the Braun Tassimo coffee machine and the Bosch Tassimo coffee machine. Here is some information for you about the history of these two machines.

The first Tassimo machines, which were designed for Kraft Foods products, were the machines made by Braun in 2005. Those are still to be found at certain stores and online but Braun are not manufacturing those machines anymore. Instead, production responsibility was moved to Bosch because of the potential conflicts of interest arising from Braun’s owner P&G also being active in the coffee market.

Bosch expanded its subsidiary plant in Slovenia in 2007, and invested €7m in production equipment and R&D to make the first Tassimo T40 (or TAS40xxGB) models. Since last year, the company has been producing the TAS65xxGB models and now the 85xxGB models, with built-in Brita filters, LCD screen, and a lit cup tray (improvements from the older TAS40xxGB models).

Hello, We had a Tassimo coffee machine which was made in Slovenia and it was a good machine. Now at our Bed, Bath & Beyond store, they are all from China. Do they still make machines in Slovenia?
