Thermal Carafe
Your coffee maker comes with a thermal carafe which will keep your coffee hot without
spoiling the flavour. Traditional coffee makers have a hot plate which can burn the coffee
and make it bitter and undrinkable. The thermal carafe is double insulated to keep coffee
hot without compromising the flavour. The stainless steel body is more robust than the
traditional glass carafe.
Carafe Safety Precautions
1. This carafe is designed to be used only on the warming plate of your Coffee Maker.
Do not use in a conventional oven.
2. Allow carafe to cool before washing or adding liquids.
3. Do not set empty carafe on a hot heating surface. Do not clean with steel wool pads,
abrasive cleanser, or any other materials that may scratch.
4. Do not bump or scratch the carafe. Never operate the Coffee Maker with a carafe that
has boiled dry.
Coffee Yield
10 Cup Coffee Maker: 10 (150ml) cups
NOTE: A 150ml cup is an industry standard and is used by most Coffee Maker
manufacturers. To fill your favourite over-sized mug, fill Coffee Maker reservoir
with enough water for 3 to 4 cups.
WARNING: TO AVOID THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT UNSCREW
THE UNDER SIDE COVER. THERE ARE NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.
REPAIR SHOULD BE DONE BY AUTHORIZED SERVICE PERSONNEL ONLY.
Permanent Coffee Filter Basket
The permanent coffee filter basket takes the place of disposable paper filters.
Simply place the permanent coffee filter basket into the removable filter basket holder.
Unfold and use the handle to lift the basket of used coffee grounds up and out of the Coffee
Maker; fold handle down to close the water reservoir lid.

Before Using For The First Time
CAUTION: To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse the Coffee Maker or allow
power cord to come into contact with water or other liquids.
1. Remove all packing material and labels from the inside and outside of the Coffee Maker.
Place the unit on a flat, clean surface.
2. Before preparing coffee, thoroughly clean the thermal carafe with lid, removable filter
holder and permanent coffee filter in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry.
Replace disassembled parts. See Care & Cleaning Instructions for a detailed description.
NOTE: The permanent filter and removable filter holder are all top rack dishwasher
safe. The reusable scoop is also dishwasher safe but it should be placed in the machine
alongside the cutlery.
3. Clean the inside of the Coffee Maker by brewing 2 full carafes of tap water
(see “setting up the machine”). Do not add the permanent coffee filter or ground coffee
for this initial cleaning.
NOTE: At the end of the first cycle, allow 15 minutes for the unit to cool.
4. Brew a second carafe of fresh water.
5. Wait an additional 15 minutes to allow the unit to cool before brewing your first carafe
of coffee.
­Setting Up The Machine
IMPORTANT: Before brewing, always check to make sure water level is past the MIN line
and add water if needed. Never exceed the MAX fill line.
NOTE: The amount of brewed coffee will always be less than the amount of water placed
into the water reservoir; as much as 10% is absorbed by coffee grounds and filter.
1. Lift to open the Coffee Maker lid. Fill carafe with cold water and pour into water reservoir
at the back of the unit. The stepped water level indicator can be easily viewed inside unit.
2. Secure the lid onto the carafe by aligning the insert arrow on the lid with the arrow on
the thermal carafe, and turn anti-clockwise to lock the lid in position. Place the empty
carafe on the warming plate.
3. Place the permanent filter in the removable filter holder. Measure 1 scoop with the
provided scooper, of ground coffee suitable for filter coffee machines for each cup of
coffee desired. For stronger or milder coffee, adjust amount of coffee to suit your taste.

the flow valve into the carafe has stopped. The carafe lid should be kept in place to
facilitate safe serving and help keep coffee at a proper serving temperature. Tilt the
carafe slightly and pour the hot coffee very slowly, so that the flow of the brewed coffee
does not exceed the width of the spout.
Once the brew cycle is complete, the LCD screen will show the TIME SINCE BREW icon
and 0:00 will begin counting up. This represents the time since the brew cycle finished.
To shut down the unit, press the ON/OFF button.

Brew Strength Selection
1. To select the strength of coffee push on the strength button.
2. For regular strength press once, the strength indicator bar on the control panel
will show 1 bar.
3. For gourmet strength press twice, the strength indicator bar on the control panel
will show 2 bars.
The gourmet setting adjusts the brewing cycle of a full pot of coffee to extract a higher
percent of solubles. This results in a more flavourful pot of coffee.
4. For bold strength press 3 times, the strength indicator bar on the control panel
will show 3 bars.
The Bold setting adjusts the brewing cycle of a full pot of coffee, allowing more time
for the coffee to “steep” to extract further oils and flavour from the coffee bean.
This results in a bolder tasting pot of coffee
5. For 1-4 cup mode press strength 4 times, the 1-4 cup will show on the control panel.
Automatically adjusts the brewing process for maximum flavour when brewing small
quantities. Ideal for brewing 1 to 4 cups of coffee.

­­Pause and Serve
If you wish to serve a cup of coffee before the brew cycle is complete, simply remove
carafe from the warming plate. Dripping will automatically cease. Return the carafe onto
the warming plate; dripping will resume.
1. After approximately 2 cups of coffee have been brewed, the carafe may be slowly
removed and the coffee will stop dripping.
2. The flow valve is located on the bottom of the filter holder and is activated when
the carafe is removed. This design makes it possible for you to remove the carafe
and pour a cup of coffee before the entire carafe is brewed.
3. When using this feature, make sure that the carafe is replaced under the filter holder
within 30 seconds to prevent overflow.
CAUTION: To prevent injury when utilizing the pause and serve feature, replace carafe
within 30 seconds after removing during the brewing process.
Auto shut off and Time Since Brew
When the brew cycle is complete, the coffee maker will beep and the light around
the ON/OFF button will turn off. TIME SINCE BREW will appear on the LCD display;
The TIME SINCE BREW will count up from 0:00 to 02:00 to let you know how fresh
your coffee is.
After 2 hours the coffee maker will beep and will automatically turn off.
The TIME SINCE BREW icon will disappear. The current time will reappear on the
LCD display.

Hints for Great Tasting Coffee
• A clean Coffee Maker is essential for making great tasting coffee. Regular cleaning,
as described in the Care & Cleaning Instructions and Descaling sections of this
Instruction Manual is highly recommended.
• Always use fresh, cold water in your Coffee Maker.
• Finer grinds, such as filter coffee, promote fuller extraction and provide rich, full-bodied
coffee. Regular grind will require slightly more coffee per cup to provide the strength of
a finer grind.
• Store coffee in a cool, dry place. Once coffee has been opened, keep it tightly sealed
in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
• For optimum coffee flavour, buy whole beans and grind them finely just before brewing.
• Do not re-use coffee grounds since this will greatly impair coffee flavour.
• Reheating coffee is not recommended. Coffee is at its peak flavour immediately after
brewing.
• If adding milk to your coffee it is recommended to add hot milk, by adding milk from the
fridge this will reduce the temperature of your coffee down considerably.
• Small oil droplets on the surface of brewed, black coffee is due to the extraction of oil
from the coffee grounds. Oiliness may occur more frequently if heavily roasted coffees
are used. Over extraction may also cause oiliness, indicating a need to clean your
Coffee Maker.
Servicing
This appliance requires little maintenance. It contains no user-serviceable parts.
Any servicing requiring disassembly other than cleaning must be performed by a qualified
appliance repair technician.

Descaling
Special cleaning of your Coffee Maker is recommended from time to time, depending on
frequency of use and quality of water used in the unit. If water in your area is especially
hard, the following cleaning procedure should be performed every 2-4 weeks, since minerals
in water can detract from the flavour of the coffee and possibly lengthen brew time.
1. Fill carafe with 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts cold water. Pour water and vinegar solution
into the water reservoir.
2. Brew the vinegar solution.
NOTE: During cleaning, more steam will occur than during normal coffee brewing.
3. Press the ON/OFF button to turn the Coffee Maker OFF. When liquid stops dripping from
filter holder into the carafe, remove the carafe and allow liquid to cool for 15 minutes.
When cooled, lift lid and pour liquid back into the water reservoir.
4. Close the lid. Return carafe to the warming plate.
5. BREW THE VINEGAR SOLUTION again, allowing all the cleaning solution to empty into
the carafe. After dripping has stopped, discard contents of the carafe.
6. Allow Coffee Maker to cool for 15 minutes, rinse by brewing a carafe full of cold water.
Insert the clean permanent coffee filter into the removable filter holder before brewing.
7. At end of brew cycle, press the ON/OFF button to turn Coffee Maker OFF. Discard water
in the carafe. Wash carafe, permanent coffee filter, and removable filter holder in hot
soapy water. Dry parts thoroughly.
