Question about Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker

Grounds in cup

When I use the Tassimo for decaf coffee, it begins the process OK. Then, near the end of the process, it sputters and spews grounds into the cup. This only seems to happening with the decaf.

I've cleaned the parts of the machine many times, and wiped the surace of the disc as well.

Any ideas?

I ONLY seem to have this problem AFTER or while using a Gevalia t-disc of ANY kind. I've found the solution is to quit using Gevalia and have switched to Maxwell House which is way cheaper as well and available at Wal-Mart which is nice since it's so hard to find T-Discs.

Also, AFTER this happens it's CRITICAL that you wipe the entire sensor part, the bar code reader etc. Then wait because once it dries there will be coffee grounds there so you have to do it again. If you do not do it again the next one regardless of the brand will do the same thing.

So far I've found this small problem still outweighs the keurig and it makes a MUCH MUCH BETTER cup of espresso (which is pretty much all that I drink).

I KNOW it's not a de-calcification program because this started happening to me within 6 months of using the machine and I have ONLY ever put purified heavily filtered (commercially) water (not tap) into my Tassimo. However, a good cleaning never hurts

You might want to try decalcifying your machine. See my comment here:

I always have coffee grounds in my coffee when I brew a K-cup. Why is that, and how do I make it stop?


The K-cup must be getting pierced on the top, where it lets the coffee grounds out into the cup during the brewing process. This usually means the K-cup isn't seated properly in the basket.

Overflow in basket


Steven, I think it`s not the filter or the coffee just that more water is flowing into the basket then it can process. I would try lesser quantity of water first to see if it overflows. Try first with filter only and then with coffee. And before you do all that, your machine should be under warranty and may be returnable to the store. Do that and save the trouble of fixing it.

Machine is spewing grounds into the cup


This is usually an overfill of grounds or the water distribution nozzle is not distributing the water correctly. First, put no coffee in the unit. Just fill a cup w/hot water. If it still is putting out grounds, the upper basket has coffee grounds stuck in the nozzle. If you get no grounds, try reducing the amount of coffee used.

NOT SO GREAT COFFEE GROUNDS!


Might there be some stuff crusting the dispanser vent? Did you clean it regularly? If you've not done that, this is what you do:

1) Open up the lid where the T-Disc is supposed to go.

2) Take out any moveable (not breakable) object, for instance the thing that punctuates the T-Disc(its made of two parts stuck together) and the T-Disc holder.

3) Take 'em apart and put 'em into your dishwasher or wash it by hand.

4) Wipe the entire T-disc area with a damp cloth, make sure nothing stays there that isn't supposed to be there.

5) Put the removed and cleaned parts back very carefully and watch out that they are exactly in place, if in doubt wheter they are fitted correctly, just shake them a little. There should be no movement other than up and down.

6) Enjoy your coffee!

This often happens when there is too much coffee put in to start with. The coffee grounds expand when wet so take up more room. If it is too full to start with then the water has to build up too much pressure and that raises the boiling point. When the espresso is finished the coffee grounds should not be packed solid. You should be able to poke a hole in it with your finger.

Bypass doser malfunctions


Happens when the preground coffee is not ground fine enough, you may have to put the pre ground coffee in a manual coffee grinder to make it finer. The machine is not really designed to brew regular coffee grounds.
