Tassimo coffee pods look like round teabags or plastic discs, depending on what flavor of coffee, tea or hot chocolate you are making. These Braun Tassimo discs come in a variety of flavors. Tassimo carries coffee from companies like Starbucks, Seattle's Best, Maxwell House, Gevalia, Mastro Lorenzo, Carte Noire, Nabob and Jacobs. Braun Tassimo discs also are available for tea, hot chocolate, cappuccino, and cafe crema.
Making a Cup of Coffee with Tassimo Coffee Pods
First, choose a Braun Tassimo disc that holds enough coffee to make one cup. Insert the disc into the machine and close it. Then fill the water tank to the level recommended by the manufacturer. Be sure the machine is closed up properly before hitting the start button.
The Tassimo machine will start mixing the contents of the coffee pod with the hot water using an inverse flow. One cup of coffee takes a minute or less to brew.
Tassimo isn't the only company with a one-cup brewing machine. Keurig also makes a one-cup machine and coffee pods called K-Cups. Like Braun Tassimo discs, Keurig has a wide variety of coffees, teas and hot chocolates. The company sells products from coffee makers like Caribou Coffee, Tully`s Coffee and Timothy`s Coffee, hot chocolate from Ghirardelli, and teas from Celestial Seasonings and Gloria Jean's Tea.
Coffee For Less sells a wide variety of Tassimo and Keurig products on its website. This online retailer specializes in coffees and coffee machines from those companies and more.
