How To Use A Tassimo Coffee Maker

Prepping

Tassimo machines need to be prepped before they can be used to brew drinks. To prep the filtration system:

  1. Rinse out the water tank and then fill it with water.
  2. Plug in the machine.
  3. Turn the machine on using the On/Off switch, so that all indicator lights flash.
  4. Place a 7-ounce mug on the cup stand and open the brewing mechanism.
  5. Place the T-Disc cleaning disc with the bar code face down in the brewing unit.
  6. Tightly close the brewing unit, wait 5 seconds, and press the Start/Stop button.
  7. Open and close the brewing unit, but do not remove the T-Disc cleaning disc.
  8. Wait until the heating light switches to auto, then press the Start/Stop button again.
  9. Repeat the last three steps.
  10. Remove the T-Disc cleaning disc—set it aside for later use, do not throw it out—and brew your first Tassimo drink.

Making a single drink

  • Turn on the Tassimo brewer and ensure there's enough water in the water tank.
  • Place a T-Disc, bar code side down, in the brewing unit, located at the top of the machine.
  • Close the lid of the brewing unit, ensuring the lid is firmly shut.
  • Place a cup directly under the dispensing area of the machine.
  • Push the Start/Stop button.

Tips

As each brewer is programmed to dispense the exact amount of water required for a single serving, there's

no need

to manually stop the machine from brewing.
