Tassimo – The Art of the Perfect Cup
Thank you for purchasing the Tassimo hot
beverage machine. With Tassimo, you can
now enjoy your favourite hot beverage any
time. Rich filter coffee, intense espresso,
delicate caffè crema, indulgent cappuccino,
even hot chocolate* and tea are yours at
the touch of a button.
+
=
Please read these instructions carefully and completely before using the appliance.
The Tassimo machine is designed to work exclusively with
special pods called Tassimo Discs (T-DISCS). T-DISCS contain
precisely measured amounts of coffee, tea, chocolate*
and concentrated milk**. The internal components of the
T-DISC™ are uniquely tailored to each beverage and guide
the flow through the Tassimo machine.
When you insert a T-DISC, the Tassimo machine reads
the bar code printed on the label. This tells the machine
exactly the size of drink, the brewing time and the precise
temperature required to make your beverage. T-DISCS
make a perfect team with the Tassimo machine and
ensure exceptional beverage quality every single time,
no matter what you choose to drink. T-DISCS are
available in stores where you typically buy coffee.

For best results, always
use fresh, cold water.
Fresh water allows the
flavours to better unfold.
T-DISCS can be stored in their carton dispenser or if you prefer,
you can transfer them to another container. Whilst you should
always store your T-DISCS in a cool, dry place, it is not necessary
to keep them in the refrigerator. Do not keep T-DISCS in the freezer.
If unopened, your T-DISCS are good until the ‘best before date’ on
the outer package.
Cups and Mugs
The Tassimo machine will accommodate most of your favourite cups and mugs. Use the
higher level of the adjustable cup stand for espresso cups and the lower level for most
other cups. For larger mugs, you can also temporarily remove both the drip tray and the
cup stand; however, these should be replaced right after brewing. Always keep the
splashback in place while brewing.
To avoid spilling over, please ensure that your cup is the right size for the drink you are
making. These are recommended cup sizes:
Espresso
75 ml
Cappuccino
200 ml
Coffee, Caffè crema, Chocolate*
and Tea
280 ml
Maintenance
You must regularly clean and descale your Tassimo
machine to ensure best results (see sections “Cleaning”
and “Descaling”). For cleaning and descaling purposes, a
reusable cleaning disc is provided with the machine.
Please keep it in a safe place for use as required.

Preparing your machine for use
PLEASE NOTE:
IMPORTANT
• This appliance is intended for household use only.
Before using your Tassimo machine for the first time, you must
prepare it by following the procedure below. Your Tassimo machine comes
• Place the appliance on a dry, flat and fixed surface
and keep it out of reach of children.
• Never use warm water, sparkling water or milk to
fill the water container.
• Never open the brew mechanism during brewing.
In “Auto Mode”, always wait for the indicator light
to move from AUTO to MANUAL before opening the
brew mechanism. In “Manual Mode”, take your
finger off the start/stop button and wait until
the machine has stopped before opening the
brew mechanism.
• For some drinks, the brew cycle includes a 10
second pause after the initial influx of water. This
pause is normal and allows the water to fully
saturate the product before brewing continues.
• If during brewing you can hear the machine running
but no drink is produced, stop the cycle by pressing
and releasing the start/stop button. Open the
brew mechanism carefully and slowly, and discard
the T-DISC. Try again with a fresh T-DISC.
• After 10 minutes of non-use, the STANDBY light
will illuminate. If you are not going to use your
machine for an extended period, turn it off using
the on/off switch.
• Braun electric appliances meet applicable safety
standards. Repairs on electric appliances (including
cord replacement) must only be carried out by
authorised Braun service centres. Faulty, unqualified
repair work may cause accidents or injury to the user.
• This machine is not suitable for use at altitudes
above 2000 metres.
4 Preparing your machine for use
with a cleaning disc to use for rinsing and descaling the machine.
Rinse the water container, fill it to “max” with fresh
cold water and place it on the machine. Check that the
water container is inserted in the slot of the back of the
machine. Connect the machine to the electrical supply
and press the on/off switch located on the back of the
machine. All the indicator lights will flash. Place a large
cup (at least 200ml) on the adjustable cup stand.
Open the brew mechanism, position the cleaning
disc on the T-DISC holder, bar code facing down.
Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the
clamp down until it shuts.
Wait five seconds then press and release the start/
stop button to start the machine. You will hear the
machine run for a short period to fill the internal water
heater. When the machine stops running, the STANDBY
light will illuminate.
Open the brew mechanism and close it again leaving
the cleaning disc in place. The orange HEATING light
will begin to flash. Wait about a minute until the green
AUTO light illuminates then press and release the
start/stop button. The machine will fill the cup with
water. When the machine stops running, empty the cup
and place it back on the adjustable cup stand. Repeat
this step in its entirety.
Open the brew mechanism and remove the cleaning
disc. The HEATING light will illuminate. Do not discard the
cleaning disc after use – you will need it for flushing and
descaling the appliance. Your machine is now ready to use.
Preparing your machine for use 5
How to use the machine – Auto Mode
Rinse and fill the water container with fresh cold water. Turn on
the machine by pressing the on/off switch. Open the brew
mechanism. Opening the brew mechanism will initiate the
heating of the water and the HEATING light will flash.
Place a clean cup on the cup stand, adjusting the height of the
stand up or down so that the rim of the cup is close to the
brew mechanism.
• To adjust the cup stand, insert your finger in the centre
of the stand, lift and turn.
• To avoid spilling over, please choose the right sized cup for
the drink you are making. See page 3 “Tips for the Perfect Cup”.
Open the brew mechanism, remove the T-DISC and discard.
Your drink is now ready to be enjoyed.
You can prepare the next beverage right away by repeating
steps 2 – 5.
• Always remove the used T-DISC from the machine right after
brewing. When removing the T-DISC, handle it by the thumb
tab to avoid contact with heated areas.
• Please ensure that there is enough water in the water
container. If the water level is too low, all the indicator lights
will flash, signalling that the water container needs to
be refilled.
Position your choice of T-DISC on the T-DISC holder, label facing
down. Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the clamp
down until it shuts. The HEATING light may flash again as the
machine heats the water to the required temperature for
your drink.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/
stop button. Brewing will start automatically. There may be
a short pause during brewing; this is normal. The AUTO light
flashes throughout the brew cycle. When the machine has
finished brewing, the indicator light will move from AUTO to
MANUAL and then, after a delay of 30 seconds, to HEATING.
• When the indicator light moves to MANUAL, you can customise
your cup as described in “Manual Mode” (See page 8).
• At any time during the “Auto Mode”, you can stop the brew cycle
by pressing and releasing the start/stop button. The machine
will stop and any remaining liquid inside the T-DISC will empty
into the cup.

Cleaning
Descaling
Regularly clean your Tassimo machine to ensure best results;
a simple cleaning schedule (every two days) will keep your Tassimo
machine working at full potential. Always unplug the appliance
before cleaning. Never immerse the appliance in water. Never use
abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of
the Tassimo machine. All the removable pieces are dishwasher safe
except the water container which must be hand washed.
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
Machine Exterior
• The outside of the machine should be wiped down as necessary with a damp soft
cloth and washing up liquid. Always hand wash the water container.
• It is normal for the removable drip tray to collect water during the brewing process:
regularly check the water level in the drip tray and empty it when it fills or at least
once a day. The drip tray, cup stand, and splashback should be removed and
cleaned; the splashback should be securely positioned before reinserting the drip
tray and cup stand.
Machine Interior and Brew Mechanism
• The inside of the brew mechanism should be wiped with a damp soft cloth and
washing up liquid. A specially developed cleaning tool is included for cleaning the
bar code reading window. Clean the window on a regular basis to ensure that
the Tassimo machine can clearly read the bar code on the T-DISC.
• The piercing unit and T-DISC holder are easily removable and are dishwasher safe.
Separate the piercing unit into two parts to clean it. The piercing unit can be
quickly rinsed between beverages if desired.
Descaling products are widely available from stores selling coffee makers and espresso
machines. Only use a product intended for descaling. Mix the descaling product
directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling
packaging. Replace the water container on the machine.
Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc barcode down
and close the brew mechanism. When the AUTO light illuminates press and release the
start/stop button. The brew cycle will fill the machine with descaling solution. Empty
the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Open the brew mechanism and close it again leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates press and release the start/stop button. When the
machine stops running, empty the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness. Discard the
remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it thoroughly and refill
with fresh cold water.
Open and close the brew mechanism again leaving the cleaning disc in place. When
the AUTO light illuminates press and hold the start/stop button to flush water
through the machine. The MANUAL light will illuminate. When the cup is full, release the
start/stop button and empty the cup. Replace the cup and press and hold the
start/stop button to continue flushing until the water container is empty. Refill
the water container with fresh cold water and repeat this step.
Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and refill the water container. Your machine is now
ready to use.
• You can use the cleaning disc to flush the inside of the machine between drinks.
Simply place the cleaning disc on the T-DISC holder, firmly close the brew
mechanism and run clean water into an empty cup as described in “Preparing Your
Machine for Use”. This process should also be followed if the machine has been left
unused for more than two days.
• After using a milk or chocolate* T-DISC, it is recommended that you first rinse the
piercing unit and then flush the machine using the cleaning disc.
