Systems, methods and cartridges for carbonating or otherwise dissolving gas in a precursor liquid, such as water, to form a beverage. Carbonating gas can be provided to a tank via the tank outlet, thereby purging at least a portion of a dispense line leading from the tank to a dispensing station. A single pump may be used to deliver liquid to the tank, e.g., for carbonation, and to pump pressurized air to dispense liquid from the tank. A water trap may help remove moisture from carbonating gas.
1. A beverage making machine, comprising: a precursor liquid supply to provide precursor liquid used to form a beverage;a carbonation tank having an inlet coupled to receive precursor liquid delivered by the precursor liquid supply, and an outlet at a bottom of the carbonation tank to deliver precursor liquid from the tank to a dispense line that leads to a dispensing station; anda carbonating gas supply line fluidly coupled to the dispense line of the carbonation tank to deliver carbon dioxide gas to the outlet of the carbonation tank to carbonate the p...
