The Tassimo Hot Beverage System is a consumer single-serve coffee system that prepares one-cup servings of espresso, regular coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and various other coffee drinks, notably those including milk such as latte or cappuccino. The brand is owned by Mondelēz International.
The Tassimo system utilizes proprietary non-reusable plastic beverage pods, called T-Discs, which are produced and distributed by Mondelēz. A bar code on top of each T-Disc instructs the machine to use the proper brewing settings. It will then change the water temperature, the amount of water, and the brew time and strength. This allows the Tassimo pod maker to brew a variety of hot drinks: filtered style coffee, cappuccino, short espresso, tea, and hot chocolate. The brewing process takes between 30–60 seconds. Discs containing milk use UHT milk, not powdered milk.
Tassimo T-Discs are currently offered under brands owned by Mondelēz or Kraft Foods, including Maxwell House, Carte Noire, Suchard and Twinings.
