Question about Braun Tassimo Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Tassimo - Can other pods be used?

I had a Tassimo for a wedding present and am extremely disappointed. As has been mentioned on here a few times, it doesn't put out a nice full cup of coffee and also splatters coffee all over the place. It is currently sitting in our garage, having only been used about 20 times.

Can I put other manufacturers 'pods' in? If so, which ones work and will give a mug full?

I am having trouble finding anything but espresso and cappucino at our local sainsburys/tesco/asda. Cannot find decaf or tea stocked anywhere!!

many thanks.

I go onto Tassimo on line and there are loads of pods. If you like big ones, the star bucks range is good, now available in the UK, previously had to get them brought over by a friend. I just stocked up and now my tassimo won't even switch on! :@(

Hi,
I am not sure if you have a TARGET store near you, but I found some different Tassimo products there this past weekend.

Bought a used Tassimo, is it supposed to make loud noise when brewing?


The water tank is probably not seated correctly.It can look as though it is, but you have to make sure the forward edge of it has been tilted so that the angled indentation in the plastic exactly mates with the machine.If it doesn't, water is not drawn from the tank, the pump makes a noise, and steam comes from the pod area.

Braun tassimo does not recognise cleaning disc, but does work wit coffee pod!


The problem is that the barcode on the cleaning disk is recessed unlike those on the pods. It seems that the reader has difficulty reading the barcode that is slightly further away than normal.

I've had this problem this afternoon and solved it by carefully peeling off the barcode from the cleaning disk and "fattening it up" with foam tape then re-applying to the plastic cleaning disk. Works perfectly now, just as well as I was close to throwing the whole machine at the wall.

Hope this helps someone

My tassimo will not read the bar code. I have tried different pods and cleaned the reader and it still doesn't go past the yellow light


I have the same problem. It works for one coffee after it's been switched off for an hour or two.
I calle Tassimo and they are sending out a new one!

My tassimo has just been descaled but when making lattes, there is still creamer solution left in the pod when the machine has finished


Have you tried shaking the pod before use?  Also, they don't work as well after they have been frozen, just in case yours were.

Tassimo not fully dispensing the t-disk


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.

Coffee Doesn't Brew


You may have gotten a unit that is minus the piercing apparatus. The little plastic piece with the piercer may come off with the used pod. This never happened to us but my daughter-in-law did, and apparently threw the piercer out with a used pod. They were able to order the part which seems to be easily removable - actually they ordered two while they were at it. Their coffee maker is working just fine.
