To Use:

  • Raise the lid of the water tank and pour 4-8 cups of fresh cold water into the tank
  • Place a basket style filter in basket.
  • Scoop ground coffee into the filter.
  • Slide the filter basket back into the holder until it snaps into place and the indicator on the filter basket handle is fully covered. Place the carafe with the lid removed under the filter basket.
  • Switch the appliance on. The on/off switch will light up to show that the machine is operating
  • After the brewing process ends, a beep will be heard once the cycle is complete
  • For pouring coffee from the thermal carafe, depress the lever on carafe’s lid.
  • Optional: If you are brewing with freshly roasted coffee, or you would like to pre-infuse the coffee, press and hold the power switch for 5 seconds. At that point the power switch light will flash and 2 beeps will be heard indicating that you’ve enabled the pre-infusion mode. Press and release the power switch a second time to begin brewing.
