Automatic coffee makers let you pour fresh water
into a reservoir at the top of the device to obtain the same
amount of hot coffee.
In some models, gravity
displacement of preheated hot water by cold water is the
working rule. In others, water is brought to a boil before
brewing a batch of coffee.
In using an automatic coffee maker, there are two
phases in making coffee, preheating and brewing. The
preheating phase consists of the following steps. Slide
the brewing chamber under the spray head and place an
empty decanter under it. Then open the top cover and
pour two decanters of cold water in the reservoir.
Replace cover. Make sure to plug into electric outlet of
the correct voltage (specified on the nameplate of
device). It should be noted that the two decanters of cold
water should be poured in before connecting the plug.
Preheat time is usually 18 minutes, and a signal light will
turn on when the water reaches the proper brewing
Brewing good coffee requires skill, technique, and
the experience of the skilled foodservice specialist. To
properly brew coffee, remove the brewing chamber and
place one paper filter in it. Add required amount of the
recommended coffee grind. Check to be sure the coffee
is evenly leveled before replacing brewing chamber.
After the preheating phase, add a decanter of cold water
to the reservoir. Coffee will immediately start to brew
and flow into the decanter under the brewing chamber.
When the flow stops, you are ready to serve.
The simple care of your equipment makes an
important contribution to the excellence of your coffee
service and efficient use of energy.
All parts of the brewer that come into contact with
the coffee and coffee vapor should be kept immaculately
clean. Decanters, for example, should be thoroughly
cleansed and rinsed free of detergent after each use.
Spray heads should be checked regularly for traces of
lime or other deposits in or around the holes. It is
important to keep them clean.
Paper filters should never be reused as they can pick
up odors from other foods. Discard after each brewing
process. Be careful where you store them.
Cloth filters should be rinsed after each brew and
stored overnight in a vessel of fresh cold water. Replace
cloth filters often to ensure good-tasting coffee. A
simple sniff test should tell you when it is time to
New cloth filters should be cleaned and rinsed in
very hot water to remove sizing (starch) and cloth odors.
Do not use soap, bleaches, or detergents since they
If you brew in sealed filter bags with a stainless steel
filter screen, rinse out the holding cartridge and screen
daily. Once a week soak the screen overnight in a
solution of urn cleaner and rinse thoroughly before
