Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System Review

The cool thing about the Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage System is that you can make different types of coffee, esspresso, cappuccino, lattes, hot chocolate and teas with it.  This machine uses prepackaged “discs” and it is so easy to use!  All you have to do is fill its tank with water and place a Tassimo “T DISC” in the machine, close the lid and hit a button.  In no time at all, your beverage will be ready to drink.  It’s so simple!  Each T DISC makes one cup of whatever it is you are drinking.  Once the beverage is made, all you have to do is open the lid and throw the T DISC away.  That’s all the clean up you have to do at the time.  Sounds pretty easy, huh!

Are you one of those java drinkers that doesn’t like plastic parts in their coffee maker?  Do you believe that “Hot Water + Plastic = Bad”?  And if you aren’t one of those people, you might be wondering why I am even writing about this topic?  There are a couple of reasons why hot water coming into contact with plastic can be bad for of us.  One is that it makes the coffee taste bad and the other is estrogens.

Those people that can taste the plastic in their beverages use stainless steel electric kettles to heat their water.  You might think that the taste of plastic isn’t that bad, but there is that estrogen thing to think about.  The problem with this is that the compounds in the plastic that are called plasticizers can be estrogenic and carcinogenic.  If you want to minimize your estrogenic exposure you should get a stainless steel kettle and get rid of your plastic kettle.

The following kettles are affordable, made out of stainless steel and have their own beneficial features.
