BREWING COFFEE
Before brewing coffee for the first time, run the coffee maker
through a complete brewing cycle without coffee. Use a full
carafe of clean, cool water. This rinses the water reservoir, heat
pump, and showerhead. This first brew cycle will yield slightly less
water than the amount added, since the brew system retains a
small amount of water.
NOTE: Use at least 4 cups (17 oz.) of water to brew coffee.
The coffee maker will not operate with less.
2. Remove the water guide cover and pour the water into the guide.
1. Fill a carafe with enough fresh, cool water to make the desired
amount of coffee. A graduated scale on the side of the carafe
helps measure the amount of water required. The right side
of the scale (“coffee”) is an accurate measurement of carafe
volume in 41⁄4-ounce cups. The left side of the scale (“water”)
indicates the amount of water needed to produce a given
number of cups. (Brewing always produces less coffee than the
volume of water added, since coffee grounds retain water.)
The water level icons on the brew timer
display will indicate whether the water reservoir is low, medium,
or near full.
16
If message tones are enabled, the coffee maker will beep
once when the water reservoir is near full.
3. After filling the reservoir, place the carafe on the coffee maker
warming plate.
7. To begin brewing, turn the Auto-On/Off Switch clockwise to
the “On/Off” position, then release. The on/off indicator light
will illuminate when the coffee maker is on. Do not remove the
carafe from the coffee maker until brewing is complete.
5. Make certain the plastic brew basket insert is placed in the brew
basket. Insert a 10-12 cup flat-bottom paper filter or the optional
permanent filter into the brew basket. Using the included scoop,
fill the filter with one rounded scoop of ground coffee for each
cup desired. Add more coffee for a stronger brew, less for a
weaker brew. Use a medium grind appropriate for automatic drip
coffee makers: too fine a grind will produce bitterness and may
cause water to overflow the brew basket.

COFFEE BREWING
SUGGESTIONS:
ADVICE FOR GREAT TASTE
The flavor of coffee depends on a variety of
factors, including the quality, freshness, and
roast of the beans, the fineness and
consistency of the grind, the ratio of coffee
to brew water, the cleanliness of the brewing
equipment, and the brew water purity.
Fresh Coffee Beans
Great coffee can only come from fresh coffee
beans, properly roasted. Many experts
recommend buying beans roasted no darker than a
medium roast, the color of which appears as an
even chocolate brown. This roast preserves the natural sugars
and flavor of the bean, and sets the stage for an excellent cup of
coffee. A medium roast is the darkest a bean can be roasted
without oils developing on the surface.
24
Darkly roasted beans – which appear dark brown or
nearly black – look great, but the extra roasting will
overwhelm the more delicate coffee flavors and
caramelize any sugars. A heavy “roasted” coffee
flavor, often bitter and sharp, will predominate
with a dark roast.
To preserve the freshness of coffee beans:
Keep beans in an opaque, air-tight container and
store them in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration is not
recommended, as condensation tends to form on
the beans whenever the container is opened. Freezing
can help preserve beans stored for an extended period, but it will
also impair the flavor.
Be sure to grind your coffee to the correct size – use a medium
grind level appropriate for automatic drip coffee makers. Feel free
to experiment with slightly finer or coarser grinds, but don’t
overdo it: too fine a grind will result in very bitter coffee, and too
coarse a grind will produce weak flavor. If the correct grind is
used, adding more coffee simply makes a brew stronger without
making it excessively bitter.
The Proper Amount of Ground Coffee
For standard drip-process coffee, a good starting point is to use
1 ounce of coffee for every 4 cups of brew water as measured
with the carafe (a carafe “cup” is about 41⁄4 ounces). Finer grinds
usually require less coffee, but using too fine a grind will produce
bitterness and may cause water to overflow the brew basket.
Brew Water Purity
The PRO LINE® Series water filter that comes with your coffee
maker is one of the most effective in the industry at removing
off-tastes and contaminants from your brew water. It also
softens the water and extends the time between coffee maker
descalings. For great tasting coffee, be sure to use the filter –
and replace it promptly when the water filter icon appears on
the brew timer display.
OPERATION
A proper grind is critical for good coffee, and that means using a
quality burr grinder like the PRO LINE® Series Burr Coffee Mill or the
KitchenAid® Model A-9™ Coffee Mill. A good burr grinder will
produce an extremely consistent grind with little frictional heating,
and preserve the full flavor of your coffee.
AND
Freshly ground coffee loses flavor and aroma quickly – within
minutes. The best cup of coffee will always come from coffee
beans that are ground just before brewing.
If you prefer substantially weaker-than-average coffee, it’s best to
brew using a normal amount of ground coffee and then dilute
the result with hot water. Doing this will maximize flavor and
minimize bitterness.
Where local water quality is extremely poor, you may wish to use
bottled, purified water with your coffee maker. Do not use distilled
water or mineral water – they can damage the coffee maker.
If the coffee maker hasn’t been used in awhile, run it through a
complete brewing cycle without coffee. Use a full carafe of
clean, cool water. This rinses the water reservoir, heat pump,
and showerhead, and eliminates any stale water within the unit.

FEATURES
The Right Grind
COFFEE BREWING
SUGGESTIONS:
ADVICE FOR GREAT TASTE
Coffee Maker Cleanliness
Coffee oils build up quickly within the brew basket and carafe.
Over time, these oils will go stale and taint the flavor of freshly
brewed coffee. Daily cleaning of the brew basket, brew basket
insert, and carafe is strongly recommended for the
best-tasting coffee.
Warming Plate Temperature
If you intend to keep coffee on the warming plate for an
extended period, use the “low” temperature setting. This will help
preserve coffee flavor.

AND
Calcium deposits (“scale”) from water will build up in the coffee
maker heat pump over time and impair brewing efficiency and
coffee quality. With normal use, scale should be removed every
three months or whenever the water filter icon appears on the brew
timer display. Local water conditions, use of the coffee maker more
than once a day, or use without a water filter may require more
frequent descaling.
Descaling Steps
1. Before descaling, always remove the water filter (see “Installing

contains no coffee or coffee filters.
CARE
Descaling
CARE
AND
Storing the Coffee Maker
Since the coffee maker retains a small amount of water after
brewing, never use it in environments where the temperature drops
below freezing (32˚F or 0˚C).
If the coffee maker will not be used for a prolonged period, or if it
will be stored at temperatures below freezing, empty all water from
the unit. To empty, unplug the coffee maker, then remove the water
guide cover, the water filter access cover, the water filter, and the
brew basket. Hold the coffee maker over a sink, and repeatedly turn
it upside down until all the water drains from the unit. Wipe the
coffee maker dry, and store.
When the coffee maker is taken out of storage, run it through a
complete brewing cycle without coffee. Use a full carafe of clean, cool
water. This rinses the water reservoir, heat pump, and showerhead.
Cleaning the Optional Permanent Filter
After several uses, clean the filter with a soft brush or sponge. Avoid
using abrasive cleansers or steel wool pads. The filter can also be
washed in the top rack of a dishwasher.

CLEANING
TROUBLESHOOTING
AND ERROR CODES
The coffee maker needs to be descaled. Unplug the coffee
maker for 30 seconds to reset the display, then plug it back in
again. See “Descaling” on page 29. If error codes continue to
appear after cleaning, see the KitchenAid Warranty and Service
section on page 33.
• If the coffee maker makes loud sounds during brewing:
The coffee maker needs to be descaled. See “Descaling” on
page 29.
CLEANING
• If “E1” or “E2” appears on the brew timer display:
The coffee maker needs to be descaled. See “Descaling” on
page 29.
If the problem cannot be fixed with the steps above, see the
KitchenAid Warranty and Service section on page 33.*
AND
Check to see if the coffee maker is plugged in. If it is, unplug
the coffee maker, then plug it back in again. If the brew timer
display remains dark, check the fuse or circuit breaker on the
electrical circuit the coffee maker is connected to and make
certain the circuit is closed.
• If it requires more than 10 minutes to brew 12 cups of coffee:
*Do not return the coffee maker to the retailer. Retailers do not provide service.
CARE
• If the brew timer display is not illuminated:
• If “E3” appears on the brew timer display:
A button or switch is jammed. Unplug the coffee maker, press
or turn each switch and button several times, then plug the
coffee maker back in. (If the coffee maker has been stored or
used in a cool environment, warm the unit to normal room
temperature before doing this.) If “E3” appears again on the
display, repeat this procedure.
