FOR THE PERFECT
CUP OF COFFEE
The Quest for the Perfect Cup of Coffee . . . . 4
Element 1: Water
Features and Benefits . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5
Coffee is 98% water. The quality of that
water is as important as the quality of
your coffee. If water doesn’t taste good
from the tap, it won’t taste good in your
coffee. Cuisinart includes a charcoal
water filter to remove chlorine, bad
tastes and odors, for the purest coffee
flavor, every time you brew.

Charcoal Water Filter . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8
While coffee is 98% water, all of the
flavor comes from the beans. To
achieve the same great taste you enjoy
at a coffee bar, you need to use the
same quality of coffee. If you choose to
grind your own beans, buy them fresh
and whole. Buy only about a two-week
supply at a time, because once the
bean is broken, its flavor degrades
quickly.

IMPORTANT UNPACKING
INSTRUCTIONS
1.Place the box on a large, sturdy, flat
surface.
2.Remove the instruction book and any
other literature.
3.Turn the box so that the back side of
the coffeemaker is down and slide the
coffeemaker from the box.
4.After the coffeemaker has been
removed, place the box out of the way
and lift off the left and right polyfoam
insert.
5.Grasp the carafe by its handle, remove
it from the resting plate, and remove
the polybag.
6.Remove the polybag covering the
coffeemaker.
Save all packing materials in case you have
to ship the machine in the future.
KEEP ALL PLASTIC BAGS AWAY FROM
CHILDREN.
Element 3: Grind
The grind is critical for proper flavor
extraction. If the grind is too fine, overextraction and bitterness will result. Too
fine a grind may also clog the filter. If
grind is too coarse, the water will pass
through too quickly and the maximum
flavor will not be extracted. When
grinding your own beans, we
recommend a medium-fine grind.
Element 4: Proportion
Coffee that is too strong or too weak is
always a disappointment. Follow the
recommended portions of ground coffee
in the instructions under MAKING
COFFEE below, and later adjust the
amount to suit your taste.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
1.Reservoir Cover
Flips back for easy filling.
2.Water Reservoir with Water Level
Indicator Window

BEFORE BREWING YOUR
FIRST POT OF COFFEE
During the manufacturing process, dust
can get trapped in your coffeemaker. We
recommend flushing out the system
before brewing your first pot of coffee.
Simply fill the reservoir and power on the
unit. (See steps #2 and #6 in MAKING
COFFEE instructions, below). DO NOT
ADD COFFEE!
Once you’ve done that, brew a pot of real
coffee and get ready to enjoy Cuisinart at
its best!
MAKING COFFEE
Follow instructions in “Before Brewing
Your First Pot of Coffee” above.
1. Insert charcoal water filter
Follow directions for the preparation and
insertion of the filter on page 8.
2. Fill the water reservoir
Open the reservoir cover by lifting it up.
Pour in the desired amount of water
using the water level window located at
the side of the coffemaker.
3. Set preferences
a. Push the 1-4 cup button if you are
brewing fewer than 5 cups.
b. Press Regular or Bold button to select
flavor strength. Flavor will remain at
selected strength until you change it.
c. Turn Ready Tone on to signal when brew
cycle is complete. (5 tones will sound)
4. Add the ground coffee
Remove the filter basket by grasping the
handle and lifting straight up, and then
place it on the countertop. Insert a #4
paper filter or permanent filter. Be sure
that the paper filter is completely open
and fully inserted in the basket. It may
help to fold and flatten the seams of a
paper filter beforehand. Add 1 level
scoop of ground coffee per cup. Adjust
the amount according to taste.
NOTE: The maximum capacity for
ground coffee is 15 tablespoons for
this coffeemaker. Exceeding this amount
may cause overflow if the coffee is too
finely ground.
Replace the filter basket in the filter basket holder and press firmly on cover to
be sure it closes securely.
5. Before brewing coffee
Make sure the thermal carafe is in
position on the resting plate and the top
cover is closed. Plug the cord into an
electrical outlet.
6. Power unit
Turn the Function knob to brew, press
the on/off button, and the red indicator
light will turn on. Or, set the Auto On
function (see page 7) and the green indicator will light.
7. After brewing is complete
Coffee will continue to stream from the
filter for several seconds.
Stir coffee before serving to blend the
flavors. The coffee at the bottom of the
carafe will be somewhat stronger than the
coffee at the top.
Note: Reservoir cover may be hot during
and directly after brewing. Wait at least 10
minutes before opening.
Brew Pause Feature
This feature interrupts the flow of coffee
from the basket to let you pour that first
cup mid-brew. Because the flavor profile
of coffee brewed at the start of a cycle
differs from that brewed towards the
end, be aware that using this feature will
weaken the flavor strength of the
finished pot.
NOTE: Removing carafe for more than
20 seconds may cause filter basket to
overflow.
CHARCOAL WATER FILTER
Your coffeemaker comes with a
charcoal water filter that eliminates
chlorine, bad tastes and odors from
tap water.
Inserting the Water Filter
•Remove the filter from polybag and
soak it, fully immersed, in cold tap
water for 15 minutes.
•Lift the water filter holder out of the
water reservoir (see diagram, page 5).
•Press down on the filter compartment
and pull toward you to open.
•Place filter into the holder and snap
it closed. Be careful – improper
placement can tear the filter skin.
•Flush filter by running cold tap water
through holes in bottom of
compartment for 10 seconds.
•Allow the filter to drain completely.
•Slide the water filter holder back into
the channel in the water reservoir,
pushing it down to the base of the
unit.
NOTE: We recommend
changing the water filter
every 60 days or after
60 uses, and more
often if you have
hard water.
Replacement filters
can be purchased in
stores, by calling
Cuisinart customer
service, or at
www.cuisinart.
com.
CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
Always turn coffeemaker off and remove the
plug from the electrical outlet before
cleaning.
Lift up the reservoir cover. Remove and
discard the paper filter and ground coffee.
The filter basket can be washed in warm,
soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or
cleaned in the upper rack of the dishwasher.
Dry all parts after use.
Do not put any water in the unit once the
filter basket has been removed. Wipe the
area under the filter basket with a damp
cloth.
Remove the carafe from the resting plate.
Discard any remaining coffee. The carafe
and lid can be washed in warm, soapy water
and rinsed thoroughly, or placed in a
dishwasher. The carafe and carafe lid should
be placed on the upper rack only.
Do not use any scouring agents or harsh
cleansers on any part of the coffeemaker.
Never immerse base unit in water or other
liquid. To clean base, simply wipe with a
clean, damp cloth and dry before storing.
Fingerprints and other blemishes on the
housing can be washed off with soap and
water or a nonabrasive cleaning solution.
Wipe heating plate with a clean, damp cloth.
Never use rough, abrasive materials or
cleansers to clean the resting plate. Do not

flavor of your coffee. To clean, fill the water
reservoir to capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³
white vinegar and ²⁄³ water. Press the Clean
button. When the self clean light glows, turn
the coffeemaker on by pressing the on/off
button. The Clean light will shine steadily.
The coffeemaker is now in clean mode. One
cycle should be sufficient to adequately
clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is
completed and the five beeps sound, the
coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the
coffeemaker on to see if the Clean light
continues to flash. If it does, turn it off and
then repeat the cleaning procedure with a
fresh solution of vinegar and water.
If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the
coffeemaker off and then run one cycle of
fresh cold water through the unit before
using the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Clean Function
Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
again to return the coffeemaker to all its
previous settings. Pressing On/Off will also
exit the clean mode and turn the
coffeemaker off.
Decalcification
Decalcification refers to the removal of
calcium deposits which form over time on
the metal parts of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your Brew
Central® Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends
upon the hardness of your tap water and
how often you use the coffeemaker. The
flashing Clean light will indicate when you
should clean your coffeemaker.
If the Clean light begins to flash when the
coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that
the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the
