Important Things You Should Know
•
The SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker is designed to remain plugged in at all times
(except during draining and extended periods of non-use). Brewing begins after
water is poured into the water reservoir.
•
A Reservoir Power Switch (ON/OFF switch) is located on the lower left side to completely shut off all electrical components when your plans take you away from home
for several days or when your coffeemaker will not be in use for an extended period.
Your SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker has safety features which make the daily use of
this switch unnecessary.
•
Whenever the SPEEDBREW ™ Reservoir Power Switch has been turned OFF, or
the unit unplugged, allow the water in the tank to heat to the proper temperature
before using. (This will take approximately 15 minutes after the Reservoir Power
Switch has been turned on).
•
Your SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker unit has an especially designed water reservoir
to keep the water at the proper temperature. This constant supply of hot water
allows you to brew regular coffee in about 3 minutes.
•
When a pitcher of cold water is poured into the water reservoir, the cold water enters
the internal tank and pushes out hot water to start the brewing process. This cold
water is then heated to the proper temperature and stored until the next brew cycle is
started. Make sure the decanter is on the warmer plate before water is added.
•
Brewed coffee flows into the decanter where it is kept at serving temperature by the
warmer plate. The warmer plate is controlled by the ON/OFF switch located above
the brew basket. NOTE: The Warmer Plate Switch only controls the decanter
warmer. The warmer plate switch should be turned off when the decanter is empty
or the coffeemaker is not in use. (For the Warmer Plate Switch to operate, the
Reservoir Power Switch must be on.)
•
The decanter lid reduces coffee evaporation and heat loss. Always place the lid
on the decanter when brewing coffee.
•
The two position Regular/Decaffeinated Brew Control Dial is located behind the
water reservoir lid. This allows for proper brewing of regular or decaffeinated coffee.
Decaffeinated coffee takes longer to brew than regular coffee.
•
WARNING: To avoid risk of scalding or other injury, do not move your
SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker once you have filled the water reservoir.

IMPORTANT
Before Using Your SPEEDBREW™ Coffeemaker the First Time
Wash decanter,decanter lid and removable brewer basket in mild detergent and water.
Rinse each thoroughly.
Prepare Your Coffeemaker Before First Use
NOTE:To avoid the risk of damage to coffeemaker, do
not plug in your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker until you
complete these steps.
1.Raise the water reservoir lid. (see Figure 1)
2.Turn the brew control dial to “regular”. Using the provided
pitcher, pour one full pitcher of water into the water reservoir
area on top of the SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker. Close
the lid and wait three minutes. (see Figure 2) NOTE: Do
not fill the water reservoir with any liquid other than cold
water (or white household vinegar for cleaning - see
“Routine Cleaning” on page 8)..
Figure 1
3.Place the decanter on the warmer plate. Open the lid. Pour a
second full pitcher of water into the water reservoir. The water
will flow into the internal tank. When the water reservoir is full,
a small amount of water will flow into the decanter. NOTE: To
avoid overfilling the water reservoir, you must wait three
minutes before adding the second pitcher of water.
4. When the flow of water into the decanter stops, empty the
decanter.
5. To flush out the machine for first use, repeat steps 3 and 4
two additional times.
6. Place the empty decanter onto the warmer plate.
Figure 2
7. Now you may plug your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker into
a 120V, AC outlet.
8. Press the Reservoir Power Switch located on the lower
left side of the SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker to ON. (see
Figure 3) Wait at least fifteen minutes for the water in the
internal tank to reach the ideal brewing temperature. Follow
the “Brewing Coffee” instructions on page 7 to brew a perfect
pot of coffee.

Brewing Coffee
1.
Slide the brew basket open and insert a Mr. Coffee® 8-12 cup
paper basket filter into the brew basket.
2.
Add desired amount of coffee according to the coffee
measurement chart found below. Shake lightly to level coffee.
If decaffeinated coffee is used, then turn the brew control dial
to “Decaffeinated” (see Brew Control Dial – Decaffeinated
Coffee on page 8).
3.
Be sure the paper filter is properly centered before sliding the
brew basket into place.
4.
Place the decanter on the warmer plate. Turn ON the warmer
plate switch located on the front of the machine. (see
Figure 5). This will keep your coffee warm when it has
finished brewing.
5.
Raise the water reservoir lid. Fill the pitcher with cold tap
water. (1 cup equals 5 ounces) Pour the water from the
pitcher into the water reservoir. NOTE: Do not fill the water
reservoir with any liquid other than cold water (or white household vinegar for cleaning - see “Routinge Cleaning” on page 8).
6.
Close the water reservoir lid. Your SPEEDBREW ™
coffeemaker will begin brewing coffee as soon as the water is added. (see Figure 6)
After initial start up, you can brew 10 cups of regular coffee in about 3 minutes.
CAUTION: The SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker will begin to brew as soon as
water is added.
7.
To insure proper brewing temperature please wait at least 10 minutes before
brewing your next pot of coffee. This will allow the water to heat to proper brewing
temperature. Attempting to brew faster than this may result in cold coffee.
Figure 5
Figure 6
WARNING
To avoid the risk of personal injury or damage to property, be sure that the
brew basket is securely in place and that the decanter is centered under the
brew basket before the brewing begins.
WARNING
BREWED COFFEE AND GROUNDS, BOTH IN THE BREW BASKET AND
DECANTER, ARE VERY HOT. HANDLE WITH CARE TO AVOID SCALDING. IF
THE BREW BASKET OVERFLOWS, OR IF THE BREW BASKET FAILS TO
DRAIN INTO THE DECANTER DURING THE BREW CYCLE, DO NOT OPEN OR
HANDLE THE BASKET. RAISE THE RESERVOIR LID, UNPLUG THE COFFEEMAKER, AND WAIT FOR CONTENTS TO COOL BEFORE HANDLING.

1 cup = 5 oz. brewed coffee
PLEASE NOTE: Decaffeinated coffee may require additional amounts of coffee.
7
Brew Control Dial - Decaffeinated Coffee
Your Mr. Coffee SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker comes with a special feature that allows
you to brew a perfect decanter of decaffeinated coffee. Just turn the brew control dial to
“decaffeinated”. This feature allows for the additional time needed when brewing decaffeinated coffee. Please note that only decaffeinated coffee should be used when your
brew control dial is in this position. Caution: To avoid overflowing the brew basket do not
use decaffeinated coffee unless the brew control dial is on the decaffeinated setting.
To Get Hot Water Only
The same steps listed on page 7 under “Brewing Coffee” can be used to obtain hot water.
Keep the brew basket in place and omit the filter and coffee. NOTE: This water is hotter
than the water from your faucet and must be handled with care.
Draining the Water Reservoir
The water reservoir in your Mr. Coffee SPEEDBREW ™ coffeemaker should be emptied
whenever the coffeemaker will be moved, shipped, or stored. Please follow these steps:
1. Turn Reservoir Power Switch OFF, unplug the SPEEDBREW ™ power cord and
allow the hot water to cool in the tank. Place the empty decanter on the warmer
plate. Pour a full pitcher of COLD water
Figure 1
into the water reservoir. Close the lid and
wait for the water to stop flowing from the
brew basket. Empty the decanter and
repeat. This will cool the water in the water
reservoir.
2. Remove the brew basket. Grasp the back
of the SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker and
tip the unit forward over a sink as far as
possible. Most of the water in the water
reservoir will flow from the shower head.
Continue tipping the coffeemaker until the
flow of water stops. (see figure 1)
8
Routine Cleaning
The decanter and brew basket should be rinsed after each use. NOTE: The decanter,
decanter lid, and brew basket are top-rack dishwasher safe ONLY. The outside of
the coffeemaker, including the area above the brew basket, can be wiped with a damp
cloth. Do not immerse the coffeemaker.
In addition, your coffeemaker must be cleaned when you begin to notice excessive
steaming or the brewing time increases considerably. This condition is caused by a
buildup of lime and mineral deposits from your water. It is recommended that you clean
your coffeemaker once a month. To clean your Mr. Coffee® Speedbrew™ coffeemaker
follow the steps listed below.
1. Place a paper filter into the brew basket.
2. Place the decanter onto the Warmer.
3. Pour one full pitcher of undiluted white household vinegar into the Water
Reservoir. NOTE: Do not use any other cleaning products in your
Speedbrew™ coffeemaker. Hot water will flow into the decanter (Do not turn on
the Warmer Plate Switch. The Reservoir Power Switch should remain ON).
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Let the unit sit for 2 hours. This will allow the vinegar to break down the lime and
mineral deposits.
After 2 hours, empty the decanter and return to warmer plate.
Pour a full pitcher of water into the Water Reservoir. (The water/vinegar mixture
will flow into the decanter.)
Empty the decanter and repeat Step 5 and 6 an additional six (6) times. This will
ensure that all the vinegar will be flushed out of the internal tank.
Remove the paper filter from the brew basket and discard.
After cleaning, wait at least 15 minutes before brewing your next pot of coffee.
This will allow the water in the internal tank to heat to the proper brewing temperature.
Decanter Cleaning
Hard water can leave a whitish mineral deposit inside the decanter. Coffee can discolor
these deposits, sometimes leaving a brownish stain inside the decanter. To remove these
stains, follow these simple steps:
1. Use a solution of equal parts white vinegar and hot water.
2. Let solution stand in decanter for about 20 minutes and then discard.
3. Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a soft cloth. Do not use harsh
abrasive cleaners. These may cause scratches which can lead to breakage.

Troubleshooting Guide
Mr. Coffee SPEED BREW™ Troubleshooting Guide
Problem
Solution
The brewed coffee is lukewarm
or cold immediately after brewing.
•Make sure that the SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker
is plugged into an outlet.
•Make sure that the Reservoir Power (ON/OFF)
switch is ON.
•Allow the water inside the coffeemaker proper
time to rise to brewing temperature. Refer to the
“Prepare Your Brewer for First Use” section on
page 6.
You have brewed two decanters
of coffee within ten minutes and
the temperature of the coffee in
the second batch is cold or luke
warm.
•Allow the water inside the SPEEDBREW™
coffeemaker proper time to heat to brewing temperature. Refer to the “Brewing Coffee” section on
page 7.
The brewed coffee is hot immediately after brewing, but
becomes cold in the decanter.
•Make sure the warmer switch is ON.
The SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker does not brew a full
decanter of coffee after a full
decanter of water has been
poured into the reservoir.
•Because of infrequent use, your SPEEDBREW™
coffeemaker may have lost water due to evaporation. Please follow these steps:
The SPEEDBREW™
coffeemaker does not brew any
coffee when you attempt to
brew less than a full decanter
of coffee
•The minimum amount of coffee that your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker is designed to brew is 20
ounces (FOUR, 5 oz. cups). When brewing a
partial batch of coffee, pour no less than 20 ounces
of water into the reservoir.
The SPEEDBREW™
coffeemaker requires more than
four minutes to brew regular
coffee.
•Set your brew control dial to “Regular”.
•Your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker may require
cleaning. Refer to “Routine Cleaning” section on
page 8
The brew basket of the
SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker
overflows when you brew with
decaffeinated coffee.
•Set your brew control dial to “Decaffeinated”.
This will lengthen the brew cycle and should
prevent overflow.
- If your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker
did brew a partial batch of coffee then
the lost water has already been replen
ished and you should be able to continue with normal brewing.
- If your SPEEDBREW™ coffeemaker
did not brew any coffee then the lost
water has not yet been fully replenished.
Promptly unplug your SPEEDBREW™
coffeemaker and follow the steps in the
section titled Prepare Your Brewer
Before First Use.
