The Tassimo single-cup system is unique in that it is a barcode-based system. The machine reads the barcode to brew each drink according to its ideal specifications. This also prevents commercial product from being used in Tassimo’s home brewer models.
You’ll notice an empty blue t-disc and an empty yellow t-disc come with your Tassimo system. Don’t discard them! Insert the blue disc to get the brewer to dispense hot water. Insert the yellow disc to tell the machine to run a cleaning cycle.
So how do tea drinkers get just hot water? Now you know!
