Fill to 10 cups for a little bit stronger, fill to 12 cups for a regular strength.
The filters provided with our coffee service are a little big but work fine.
If you need to adjust the strength, it’s safer to do with the water so it doesn’t overfill.
Afterwards (especially later in the day) you can also set the dial to “AUTO OFF” and it will shut itself off after two hours.
You do not have to wait for the entire pot to brew anymore! As long as there’s coffee made you’re good to go.
It’ll tell you how much coffee is sitting inside waiting for you to drink. If it’s empty (or you emptied it) proceed back to the beginning to make more.
To empty the previous grounds, lift out the smaller tray. There’s also a second handle for the coffee reservoir (see next image).
The larger handle under the lid will lift out the coffee reservoir for easy disposal at the end of the day.
