2. Preparing the Coffee Maker
2a. Before First Use
After unpacking your coffee maker
clean all the loose parts with warm
water and make yourself familiar with
the different functions. After reading
these instructions, clean the internal
parts of the machine by making two
carafes using only water, without any
ground coffee inside the filter.
2b. The Display / Setting the Clock
and Timer
When you plug in the coffee maker
the display will illuminate for about 30
seconds and will flash “12:00”.
All indicator lights will be off.
2c. To Set the Current Time (Fig. 2)
Push and hold the hour button. The
hours will advance. The little dot on
the left upper side (indicating AM)
changes to a left lower dot (indicating
PM). When the correct hour shows up
release the button and push and hold
the minute button to set the minutes.
Attention: You must change the clock
when the time changes (Standard
Time, Daylight Savings Time).
2d. To Set an Auto-On Time:
If you want the coffee maker to start
brewing at a preset time automatically,
first push the program button (Fig. 2, P).
The display shows "12:00".
Immediately start pushing the hour
and minute buttons as described
above until the desired time shows
up. Within a few seconds the display
will revert to the actual time.
To check the programmed time just
push the program button. The display
shows the programmed time and will
switch back to the actual time.
To change the programmed time,
push the program button and repeat
as described above.
Attention: Flashing Display!
If you unplug the coffee maker for
more than 10 seconds or if you have
a power failure, you will lose the
current time and program settings.
The flashing display indicates that you
must reset the current and programmed
time.
3. The Charcoal Filter Indicator
To start the electronic charcoal
indicator, push the blue filter button
(Fig. 2, Q). The green indicator light
for the charcoal filter will turn on.
If you use spring water, bottled water
or distilled water and make coffee
right away, it is not necessary to use
the charcoal filter. Push the blue Filter
Button (Fig. 2, Q) and the green filter
indicator light will turn off.
Attention: Spring water and distilled
water might attract impurities when
sitting in the water container
overnight. The charcoal filter will
remove most of these impurities since
the water will be filtered just before
entering the heating element.
3a. Using the Charcoal Water Filter
Most tap water is treated with chlorine.
The charcoal filter removes up to 82%
of the chlorine and other impurities
found in tap water, improving the
taste of water substantially.
The charcoal cartridge sits in the
charcoal holder (see Fig. 4). The
charcoal holder is already inserted
into the water container.
To activate the charcoal cartridge
pour four cups of water into the water
container and let it sit for approx. 3
minutes. Then turn the machine on
and let the water brew into the carafe
(see chapter 5e). Discard the water.
7
As long as the green Charcoal Filter
Light is on, the machine monitors
time and the number of brewings.
The green charcoal filter light will
start blinking either after 6 weeks or
after the Coffee Brewing Button has
been turned on 60 times (Fig. 2, N)
whichever comes first, reminding you
to replace the cartridge:
If you make coffee once a day, the
filter light will start flashing after 6
weeks. If you make coffee twice a
day, the light will flash after 30 days.
This will help you to plan the right
amount of cartridges.
Attention: When you unplug the
machine for more than 10 seconds or
if you have a power failure, the
electronic indicator loses its memory.
Then it is best to replace the filter 6
weeks after first use.
Caution: Once the cartridge is activated
you should never use it for longer
than six weeks. Harmful bacteria
build-up may occur. Unused
cartridges can be stored indefinitely.
Replacement cartridges are available
through your local Capresso dealer or
our website: www.capresso.com.
3b. Replacing the Cartridge /
Resetting the Filter Indicator
Remove the cartridge from the water
container (Fig. 3), twist and open the
holder and discard the old cartridge.
Replace with new cartridge (Fig. 4)
and close the filter holder securely.
Insert the assembly back into the
water tank (Fig. 3) and make sure it is
inserted properly otherwise the water
container lid will not close completely.
Activate the charcoal filter (chapter 3a).
While the green light is still blinking,
push and hold the Charcoal Filter
Button for a few seconds until the
light stops blinking and is illuminated
again. Now the indicator starts counting
again.

4. The Proper Sequence for Making
Coffee
Coffee makers produce very hot water.
If you follow the sequence as described
below you will avoid possible accidents
which might cause severe injuries and
burns.
1. Remove carafe from machine.
2. Open water container lid (Fig. 1, A)
and pour water into the water
container. Caution: Make sure
the water level does not exceed
the MAX setting (Fig. 6). If you fill
too much water into the tank the
carafe may overflow with hot coffee.
3. Make sure the filter holder (Fig. 1,C)
sits firmly in the Filter Holder
Housing (Fig. 1,F). Push the tab of
the filter holder down (Fig. 8) to
make sure the filter holder sits
firmly in the Filter Holder Housing.
If the filter holder is not snapped
into the housing, the drip stop
in the filter holder might not open
during brewing and hot water and
grinds could overflow and leak
from the machine.
4. Insert filter paper (chapter 5b)
or a GoldTone Filter (chapter 5a).
5. Add the correct amount of ground
coffee (chapter 5c).
6. Close the water container lid.
7. Make sure the thermal carafe is
empty and the lid of the thermal
carafe is completely closed (Fig. 11).
Insert the carafe into the machine.
8. Turn the machine on (Fig. 2, N).
9. Never open the water container lid
as long as coffee is brewing. Hot
water could spill out causing burns.
Wait until the brewing noise stops.
10. Immediately after brewing is finished
there could still be hot water in
the filter holder passing through
the ground coffee. This can take
1 to 3 minutes depending on how
much coffee you used and how
fine the coffee was ground.
5. Making Coffee
Please follow the steps described in
chapter 4.
Filling the Water Tank
See chapter 4.2.
Stainless steel thermal carafe:
When you use the thermal carafe for
filling the water tank, the inside of the
carafe will be cold from the cold
water. We highly recommend rinsing
the carafe with hot water. This will
increase the coffee temperature and
will keep the coffee hot longer.
5a. Using the GoldTone Filter
A size 4 GoldTone filter comes with
the machine. It sits in the Filter Holder.
Attention: Coffee flows slower through
a GoldTone Filter than through paper
filters. Please see the chart in chapter
5c for maximum coffee amounts.
5b. Using Filter Paper
Use size 4 paper only. Always fold the
bottom and side crimps over for a
proper fit (see Fig. 5). Do not use a
filter paper inside a GoldTone Filter!
5c. How Much Coffee?
A coffee scoop comes with your coffee
maker. We recommend using one
level scoop of coffee per cup. If you
like your coffee extremely strong
never use more coffee than the
amounts indicated in the chart shown.
Maximum #
of Scoops
Regular or Drip
Grind (Supermarket
GoldTone
Size 4
Filter
Paper Filter
12
scoops
14
scoops
8-10
scoops
9-11
scoops
Version)
Fine Grind (finer
than Drip Grind)
Using more coffee can result in an
overflow of ground coffee, above the
filter, blocking the drip stop function
and causing a mess on your counter.
5d. Using the Stainless Steel Carafe
For best coffee temperature pre-warm
the carafe by rinsing it with hot water.
Always make sure carafe is completely
empty. Place the lid on top of the
carafe as shown in Fig. 10 (pay
attention to the position of the
black dot on the lid) and turn clockwise until the lid cannot be turned
anymore and the dot points towards
the handle (Fig. 11). This is the brewing position. Caution: Make sure the
lid is not in the pouring position (Fig.
12). This could result in the Filter
Holder popping up. The drip stop will
not work and hot coffee could overflow from the filter holder.
Attention: Please note that the lid
must always be on the carafe and
closed (Fig. 11) during brewing to
activate the drip stop. If you lose the
lid, you cannot brew coffee. Please
call 1-800-767-3554 to order a new lid
or order online at: www.capresso.com.
5e. Turning the Coffee Maker On
Push the On/Off button (Fig. 2, N).
The red light will illuminate, indicating
that the brewing process is starting.
Caution: Never open the water
container lid during brewing.
5f. Serving Coffee
Brewing time for a full pot of coffee
takes just about 7 minutes.
When all the water is passed through,
the red indicator light remains on for
approx. two minutes then turns off.
The machine is now off.
Remove the carafe from the platform.
Turn the lid counterclockwise 180
degrees until until the black dot is
over the pouring spout (Fig. 12). You
can now pour coffee. After serving
make sure to close the lid again to
prevent heat from escaping from the
carafe.
It is extremely important that the
carafe lid is in the correct position
when brewing and when pouring.
Please refer to Fig. 11 and Fig. 12
for correct positioning of carafe lid.
9
5g. Pouring Coffee While Brewing
You can pull the carafe from the platform during the brewing process for
approx. 20 seconds to pour a cup in
between.
Important: Make sure to open and
close the carafe lid as indicated in
chapter 5d.
5h. Brewing Small Amounts of Coffee
When brewing small amounts of coffee
(3 to 5 cups) push the 3-5 cup button
first. The green indicator light will go
on. Then push the On/Off button. The
red indicator light will go on. The
brewing process will be slowed down
to allow the coffee to reach its full
aroma.
If you pushed the 3-5 cup button by
mistake, just push it again to turn off
this function.
Important: When brewing 3-5 cups of
coffee the temperature in the carafe
will be approx. 3 to 5 degrees lower
than on a full pot.
5i. Making Multiple Carafes of Coffee
If you want to make another carafe of
coffee immediately after the first pot,
make sure the machine is off and
allow to cool down for three minutes
before refilling the water tank.
Important: Make sure the carafe is
empty before brewing.
6. Automatic Brewing at a
Pre-Programmed Time
Set the programmed time at which
you wish to brew coffee as described
in chapter 2d.
Make sure that the programmed
time is correct (AM or PM).
Hint: If you want your coffee ready by
7:15 AM, set the programmed time to
7:05, i.e. 10 minutes earlier. This way
you get the freshest and hottest
coffee possible.
Important: Avoid any air conditioner
blowing cold air against the thermal
carafe. This will cool down the carafe
10
overnight and reduce the coffee
temperature in the carafe.
Fill the water tank and filter holder
and place the empty carafe with the
closed lid on the platform (chapter 4).
Push the "auto" button (Fig. 2, L).
The green indicator light above this
button will go on.
At the pre-programmed time, the red
on button will go on and the green
auto light will go off, indicating that
brewing has started.
Important: If you pushed the auto
button by mistake just push it again
to turn it off.
7. Handling of the Stainless Steel
Thermal Carafe
The lid of the thermal carafe has a
pouring indentation to make it possible
to pour with the lid in place (black
dot pointing at the spout, Fig. 12).
Always make sure that the carafe is
transported in an upright position.
If you turn the carafe with its lid
closed on its side or turn it upside
down, hot coffee will flow into the
grooves of the lid and exit through
the side of the lid (Fig. 13).
Important: A stainless steel bottom
covers the vacuum seal of the stainless steel body. Do not try to remove
this cover. Do not place the carafe on
any hot surfaces since this can loosen
the vacuum seal inside the bottom.
This can cause the carafe to lose its
thermal function.
Do not place carafe in dishwasher.
8. Cleaning the Coffee Maker
• Make sure coffee maker is turned
off (Red light is off). Always unplug
the appliance from the outlet before
cleaning.
• Never use scouring agents.
• Never immerse the appliance in
water or any other liquid and never
clean under running water. To clean
the appliance, wipe off with a soft,
damp cloth.
• Dishwasher safe (upper rack) are:
Filter Holder, GoldTone Filter.
• Clean the GoldTone Filter after
every use. Otherwise coffee oils will
form and clog up the small filter
openings. Old, hardened coffee oils
can spoil the taste of your coffee.
• Clean the lid of the carafe under
running water.
• Drip-stop in filter holder: make sure
that the drip-stop is free of any
coffee particles, otherwise it might
not close properly when removing
the carafe.
9. Cleaning the Stainless Steel
Thermal Carafe
Never immerse carafe completely in
hot water or any other liquid. Wipe
outside with a non-abrasive wet cloth
and dry. Fill inside with hot water and
a mild detergent and scrub with a
non-abrasive household brush.
Rinse thoroughly. Do not place
carafe in dishwasher.
10. Decalcifying
Decalcify at least every 6 months or
when brewing ten cups takes more
than 9 minutes.
Attention: Before decalcifying,
remove the GoldTone filter and
Charcoal filter from the machine.
10a. How to Decalcify with White
Vinegar
• Remove GoldTone filter and
Charcoal filter.
• Fill the water container with 20 to
24 oz. of white household vinegar.
• Place the empty carafe with the lid
closed underneath the filter holder.
• Turn the machine on for 2 minutes.
• Turn machine off and let sit for 15
minutes.
• Turn machine on again and let the
remaining vinegar pass through.
• When the red light turns off, remove
the carafe, empty and rinse a few
times with fresh cold water.
• Rinse the filter holder thoroughly
with fresh water.
• Fill 20 to 24 oz. of fresh cold water
into the water tank and brew
through machine to remove any
vinegar odors.
10b. Using other Decalcifying Agents
Only use decalcifying agents suitable
for drip coffee makers and follow the
instructions which come with the agent.
Attention: Decalcifying agents are
acids and therefore must be handled
properly. Please check the information
on the packaging of the decalcifying
agents before using.
11. Troubleshooting
What to do if...
...Coffee drips from the filter, when
the carafe is removed.
• Ground coffee sits in the drip stop
and does not allow the drip stop to
close properly. Immediately replace
the carafe and wait until all the coffee
has been filtered in the carafe. Now
remove carafe and remove the filter
holder. Clean filter holder under
running water. Push the drip stop
several times to remove coffee
particles. Over the sink fill some water
into the filter holder and check if the
drip stop closes properly.
...Ground coffee is flowing over the
GoldTone Filter.
• Coffee is ground too fine.
• Use less coffee the next time
(chapter 5c).
• Use a paper filter (size 4) instead of
the GoldTone Filter.
