It’s A #TassimoHoliday Giveaway!

Outside it is –21 degrees Celsius!  This is too cold.  It is bitter, windy and just plain drab.  Hardly the kind of weather to put one in the festive mood.  What helps?  Knowing that in a mere 10 sleeps Santa Claus is coming to town, and between now and then there will be a lot of Holiday entertaining, guests dropping in to spread some Christmas cheer, and knowing that as each one does I will be able to share a sweet treat and a perfect cup of coffee.  I’m giving myself a break this holiday season and thanks to the TASSIMO T47 all of my guests will be ridiculously impressed with a perfect cup of coffee to suit their tastes. 

The pretty TASSIMO T47 comes in this gorgeous red, or of course black for the traditionalist and with it’s with its patented barcode technology and
fast brewing time you get a perfect beverage every single time.
