The built-in water filter on the Tassimo Suprema and LCD Premium machines is a distinguishing design feature on single-cup coffee makers in that price range. However, we feel the most unique attribute of the Tassimo one cup brewing system is its ability to brew milk-based beverages like lattes and cappuccinos, in addition to coffees and teas.
The Tassimo single cup brewing system can do this because each T-Disc has a unique barcode that tells the Tassimo machine how to prepare each individual beverage. Plus, Tassimo is the only single cup coffee system that uses an espresso capsule and liquid, shelf-stable milk to prepare their milk-based drinks.
But keep in mind that making a cappuccino or latte is a two-step process. An espresso T-disc plus the specific milk T-Disc (foaming or regular) are prepared sequentially to make a single drink.
