Grind
Freshly ground coffee loses flavor and aroma quickly - within

For standard drip-process coffee, a good starting point is to use

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 carafes 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. If the coffee won't be consumed
immediately, store it in a thermal carafe. Of course, the best idea
is always to brew fresh!

When using the portable warming plate, keep freshly brewed

Cleaning
the Coffee
Maker
Unplug the coffee maker and portable warming plate.
Remove the brew basket insert from the brew basket.
Wash the brew basket, brew basket insert, carafe, and carafe lid
in hot, soapy water and rinse with hot water. Do not use
abrasive cleansers or scouring pads. These parts can also be
washed in the upper rack of the dishwasher.
A Wipe the coffee maker housing and portable warming plate with
a clean damp cloth, and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use
abrasive cleansers or scouring pads.
Descaling
Descaling
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.
Steps
Before descaling, always remove the water filter (see "Installing
the Water Filter" on page 13) and make certain the brew basket
contains no coffee or coffee filters.
Run the coffee maker through a complete brewing cycle using
the descaling solution. If the coffee maker has not been descaled
for an extended period, run it through a second brewing cycle
using fresh descaling solution.
The following conditions indicate an immediate need for descaling:
_ the presence of loud sounds during brewing
_ a brewing time greater than 10 minutes for 12 cups of coffee

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
waten This rinses the water reservoir, heat pump, and showerhead.
Cleaning the Optional
Gold Tone 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 dishwashen
