Question about Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Tassimo not fully dispensing the t-disk

It's leaving about a quarter of the milk/hot chocolate in the t-disk.

I cleaned it thoroughly and also used the cleaning t-disk a few times.

    I am having the same problem with any milk disc. It seems like the last part of the milk process is missing (injecting steam to create the froth). I cleaned my machine with coffee cleaner and ran the cleaning disk several times.

Alternatively, if that doesn't help and you're using a Braun machine it could indicate the heater block has started to scale (as this reduces the water flow through the machine).

Try descaling the machine (full descale cycle) and see if that helps!
Good luck!

I do not have experience with milk or chocolate, but for coffee and tea, at the end of a brew cycle, the green light should flip to the MANUAL light. For the next 30 seconds you have the option to press and hold the start button, to force more hot water through the pod into your cup. Give this a try to purge the pod of it's goodies!

Good luck.

Can anyone suggest any non dairy hot chocolate recipes for me?

You can basically substitute any non dairy products for milk and then follow the regular recipe for hot chocolate i.e. heat the 'milk' and add chocolate till it melts and stir in sugar to taste.

Be careful with the sugar amounts as some of the non dairy milks ie soya are quite sweet already.

You can try using almond or rice milk as well or just buy a non-dairy creamer.

How do you make iced hot chocolate?

  1. Pour milk into blender.
  2. Add hot cocoa mix and ice.
  3. Blend first at low speed and then high speed until ice is finely crushed and slushy.
  4. Pour into tall glass and top with whipped cream and a dusting of hot cocoa mix, if desired.
  5. Serve with a straw and enjoy!
  6. P.S. This recipe was originally posted using small ice cubes. At our shop we have a commercial blender that has no problem getting through these. Since most people have regular blenders, I have changed it to crushed ice.

Hello - I have a Bosch Tassimo that has worked fine for months. This morning, when placing any beverage disk into the fold down top in order to brew, the LED indicator light remains yellow instead of...

Mine does this all the time. There are several reasons why this happens . If you look at the machine from the front, find the part that pierces the disk at the top and dispenses the coffee at the bottom. This snaps in and out for cleaning. Push up on it until it pops out. If you have just used one of the hot chocolate discs and did not run the cleaning disc or rinse this part afterward, the chocolate clogs the spout and you will have to clean it out. If it is not due to a hot chocolate disk, I usually find that the small piece of aluminum that is punched out at the top has either gotten stuck inside the dispenser spout (sometimes more than one is in there) or is laying partially over the mouth in the center. The spout must be clean/clear before the green light will come on. After you pop it out, spray it out or push a pipe cleaner or other sharp object through it to clear it (skewers work, but I have to move it around to get anything that is stuck to the sides). After it's clean/clear, snap it back in place (make sure that it snaps into place). If that does not work, wipe the top and bottom of the disc shelf (there are sensors there, too). If you have had your machine for a long time (like I have), and none of that works, you may have to jiggle the top piece that covers the disc to wake the sense up. Good luck!

Tassimo red light stays on ran descaling disc twice

After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.

My Tasssimo coffee maker is 11 months old and isnt functioning.

Possibly all you need is to clean off the bar code reader window. It's right under where the bar code on the t-disc ends up. A little dried milk, etc., can cause your symptom.
