Hacking the Tassimo Single Serve Coffee Maker

tassimo_pods2.jpg

It's Monday, and you have a long week ahead looking towards the upcoming weekend. We suggest taking the small bits of time throughout the week to study - hacking the Tassimo single serve coffee maker, and then next weekend hack away. Reverse engineering a problem is always fun, and it looks like someone over at MAKE has posted just how to do this with the Braun Tassimo T1200/T1400 hot beverage system. We're not sure if this hack will work with the new Tassimo - but we expect it will. The hack hasn't been that successful yet, so perhaps you can break the "Tassimo Code".

The barcodes are used to "program" the machine to make a particular beverage using a specific amount of water at a particular temperature and for a certain duration of time. My efforts have been directed at discovering a "map" between the barcodes and how the machine controls its brewing processes. I haven't been entirely successful yet - I've managed to decode the barcodes, and have run some experiments to try and surface some patterns - no dice! Nonetheless, I'd like to put the idea out to Makers to get their feedback and ideas.

Whatever you decide to spend your time on - is your business. But what better business than hacking coffee could there be? None.
