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.
Setting The Clock
1. When you plug the coffee maker into the outlet the LCD will display "AM 12:00"
and the colon will flash. All indicator lights will be off.
2. Press the "Set" button until, the word CLOCK shows in the upper right corner
of the display. (Fig. 3).
3. Push and hold the "HOUR" button. The hours will advance. The display will
show AM and PM. When the correct hour is displayed release the button and
push and hold the "MIN" button to set the minutes.
Attention: You must change the clock when the time changes (Standard
Time, Daylight Savings Time).
4. Once the correct time is set, release the hour or minute button and the
CLOCK icon in the upper right corner will stop blinking indicating that the
time is now set.
Automatic Start Function
If you want the coffee maker to start brewing at a preset time automatically,
set the automatic start function as follows:
1. Press “Set” button until the word "TIMER" will be shown in the upper left
corner of the display. (Fig. 3).
2. Set the delayed starting time by pressing "HOUR" and "MIN" button
repetitively until the desired time is displayed. Once the correct time is set
the TIMER icon in the upper left corner will stop blinking and switch back
to CLOCK mode.
3. Press ON/AUTO/OFF button twice, the indicator light for AUTO is illuminated
green. You may check the automatic start time by pressing the "Set" button
Note: You may cancel the automatic start function by pressing the
"ON/AUTO/OFF" button until the indicator light turns off. If you want to change
the automatic start time, follow the steps above to reset. When the time is
due the indicator of AUTO will go out, and the machine will start brewing.
Using Your Coffee Maker
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 and fill carafe with desired amount of water.
Note: Water will be absorbed during brewing process. The brewed coffee
will be slightly less than markings on carafe.
2. Open the water container lid (Fig. 1, A) and fill the water tank (Fig. 1, E)
with water. Caution: The water level should not exceed MAX level marked
on the water level indicator on the inside of the machine. If you fill too
much water into the water tank the carafe may overflow with hot coffee.
3. Make sure the filter holder (Fig. 1, D) sits firmly in the filter holder housing.
Then place the filter (Fig. 1, C) into the filter holder and ensure it fits correctly.
Note: A paper filter can also be used instead of the filter. Use a flat bottomed
paper filter that indicates it will fit in a 4 or 5 cup coffee maker. Do not use
a filter paper inside of the permanent filter. Do not use a cone shaped filter.
Caution: If the filter holder is not snapped into the housing, the drip stop in
the filter holder might not open during brewing. Hot water and grinds could
overflow and leak from the machine.
Caution: When you push against the drip stop from the bottom, and the filter
holder lifts up, re-insert the filter holder. Otherwise the drip stop will not open
during brewing. Hot water could overflow from the filter causing injuries.
4. Add medium coarse ground coffee into the filter. Use approximately 1 level
tablespoon of ground coffee per cup of coffee according to personal taste.
Then close the top lid. DO NOT exceed 8 tablespoons of coffee in the filter.
5. Make sure the lid sits properly on the glass carafe. Insert the carafe into the
machine. The inner part of the lid will push the drip stop up to let coffee
brew through.
6. Press "ON/AUTO/OFF" button, the "ON" indicator will illuminate green. The
appliance will begin brewing.
Caution: 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
before lifting lid.
7. The brewing process can be interrupted by pressing the "ON/AUTO/OFF"
button twice at any time during operation, and the "ON" indicator will turn off.
The appliance will continue brewing once "ON/AUTO/OFF" is pressed again.
Note: You can remove the carafe from the platform during the brewing
process for approximately 30 seconds to pour a cup before brewing is finished.
8. Immediately after brewing is finished there could still be hot water in the filter
passing through the ground coffee. This can take 1 to 3 minutes to pass
through depending on how much coffee you used and how fine the coffee
was ground. Wait until all brewed coffee is in the carafe before serving.
9. When the brewing is finished, the machine will keep the warming plate hot
for 2 hours before automatically shutting off. To turn machine off after brewing
press the "ON/AUTO/OFF" button twice until no indicator lights are illuminated.
For optimum coffee taste, serve coffee just after brewing.
10. If you want to make another carafe of coffee immediately after the first pot,
make sure the machine is off and allow it to cool down for five minutes
before refilling the water tank. Important: Make sure the carafe and filter
basket are empty before brewing.
11. Always turn the coffee maker off and unplug the power cord from the
electrical outlet when the coffee maker is not in use.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Caution: Be sure to unplug the appliance and allow it to cool down before
cleaning. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug or
unit in water or liquid. After each use, always make sure plug is first removed
from wall outlet.
1. Clean all detachable parts after each use in hot, soapy water. Make sure
the drip stop in the filter holder is free of any coffee particles; otherwise it
might not close properly when removing the carafe. Clean the filter and
carafe after each use to ensure best tasting coffee every time.
2. Wipe the product’s exterior surface with a soft, damp cloth to remove
stains. Never use scouring agents or harsh abrasive cleaners.
3. Water droplets may buildup in the area above the filter and drip onto the
product base during brewing. To control the dripping, wipe off the area with
a clean, dry cloth after each use of the product.
4. Use a damp cloth to gently wipe the heating platform (Fig. 1, H). Never use
abrasive cleaner to clean the heating platform.
5. Dry all parts fully before placing back into the machine.
To keep your coffee maker operating efficiently, it is important to decalcify at
least every 2-4 months depending on local water hardness or when brewing
5 cups takes more than 10 minutes.
1. Before decalcifying, remove the filter from the machine.
2. Dissolve 1 oz. (28 g) of Capresso Cleaning Solution (or other descaling
agent) with 25 oz. (1 L) of water and pour mixture into water tank.
3. Place the empty carafe with the lid closed underneath the filter holder.
4. Turn the machine on for 2 minutes.
5. Turn the machine off and let sit for 15 minutes.
6. Turn machine on again and let the remaining descaling solution pass through.
7. Turn the coffee maker off, remove the carafe, empty and rinse a few times
with fresh cold water.
8. Rinse the filter holder thoroughly with fresh water and place back into the
9. Let the coffee maker cool down for a few minutes.
10. Fill the water tank with fresh cold water and brew through machine to fully rinse.
11. Turn off coffee maker and empty carafe.
12. Rinse by operating the appliance with fresh water at least 2-3 times
after descaling.
Hints for Great Tasting Coffee
1. A clean coffee maker is essential for making great tasting coffee. Regularly
clean the coffee maker as specified in the "Cleaning & Maintenance" section.
Always use fresh, cold water in the coffee maker.
2. Store unused ground coffee in a cool, dry place. After opening a package of
ground coffee, reseal it tightly or place into an airtight container. DO NOT
store ground coffee in the refrigerator or freezer.
3. For an optimum coffee taste, buy whole coffee beans and grind them just before
brewing. Keep unused whole beans in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
4. DO NOT reuse ground coffee since this will greatly reduce the coffee’s
flavor. Reheating coffee is not recommended as coffee is at its peak flavor
immediately after brewing.
5. Buildup of oils may occur more frequently if dark roasted coffees are used.
Clean coffee maker and filter more often when using oily beans.
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 filter.
• Coffee is ground too finely. Use a coarser ground.
• Too much ground coffee was placed in filter. Use less ground coffee next time.
• Use a paper filter instead of the permanent filter.
Coffee is not hot enough.
• Preheat coffee cups while coffee maker is brewing.
• Add warm milk to coffee instead of cold milk. Use automatic milk frother to
warm and froth the milk.
