Rather than making a special trip to a coffee shop every morning for a tasty espresso, you can make one at home using a Braun Tassimo espresso machine. These espresso machines use special espresso discs, called T-discs, to create a fresh cup of espresso every time. Choose the flavours you want and have complete control over the brewing process, including the quality of the water used for your drink. Consider using filtered water to make the best tasting espresso possible.
Plug the power cord into an electrical socket. Pull out the water tank on the back of the Braun Tassimo espresso machine. Fill it with fresh water up to the "Max" fill line. Place the water tank back into place on the back of the machine.
Press the power button on the bottom right side of the espresso machine. The status lights will flash briefly to indicate that it's on.
Place a cup on the tray of your Braun Tassimo espresso machine. Make sure that the cup is directly under the spout to avoid spills.
Lift the lid on top of the unit. Place a T-disc in the circular opening so the flap fits in the slot on the side. The printed side of the disc should be facing down. Close the lid firmly until it clicks.
Wait for the "Automatic" icon, characterised as a steaming cup of coffee, to light up green. Press the start button above the power button. The machine will brew your cup of espresso automatically. You'll know the cup is finished and ready to drink when the "Manual" icon lights up, characterised by a cup of coffee with a plus sign.
Wait for the standby light to turn orange. When it does, open the lid and remove the T-disc, discarding it in the trash. Turn off the power button on the Braun Tassimo espresso machine when you're finished making drinks.
