Decanter Cleaning
Hard water can leave a wfWrih mineral deposit inside the decanter. Coffee

the decanter. To remove these stains, follow these simple steps:
1. Use a hot white vinegar solution and let it soak.
2. Let it stand for about 20 minutes and then discard.
3. Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a soft cloth. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners. These will cause scratches which can lead
to breakage.
Helpful Hints
The use of chemically softened water can inhibit proper filtration. This will
affect the beverage flavor and will cause a long drip time from the brewing
funnel. Avoid using chemically softened water.
