Hints for Great-tasting Coffee
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed to reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock and/or personal injury.
1. A clean coffee maker is essential for making great-tasting coffee. Regularly
clean the coffee maker as specified in the Cleaning and 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 and store it in a refrigerator to maintain its
3. For an optimum coffee taste, buy whole coffee beans and finely grind them
just before brewing.
4. Do not reuse ground coffee since this will greatly reduce the coffee’s flavour.
Reheating ground coffee is not recommended as coffee is at its peak flavour
immediately after brewing.
5. Clean the coffee maker when over-extraction causes oiliness. Small oil
droplets on the surface of brewed, black coffee are due to the extraction of
oil from the ground coffee.
6. Oiliness may occur more frequently if heavily roasted coffees are used.
