Tip: If you rinse out the thermos carafe
with hot water before use, the coffee will

Important: When the brewing process
is complete, wait a moment until all the
coffee has run through the filter and into
the carafe.
Let the machine cool down for five
minutes before brewing a fresh pot.
General information
–	Fill water tank 1 with clean, cold water
only. Never add milk or beverages such
as tea or coffee since this will damage
the appliance.
–	Never fill water tank 1 above the marking
“8 À” (TKA865.) or “10 À” (TKA863.).
–	Use coffee with a medium grind (approx.
6 g per cup = level measuring spoon 17).
–	Do not brew less than the minimum
amount of three cups since the coffee
will not have the desired strength and
temperature (1 cup = approx. 125 ml).
–	Never remove the carafe 6 while the
machine is brewing coffee since this may
cause the filter holder 4 to overflow.
–	Make sure that carafe’s lid is closed
when you place the carafe 6 on the
coffee machine.
–	Do not use other carafes since the
special drip protector will block the coffee
from flowing into the receptacle.
–	Some water accumulation on the filter
holder 4 is normal; it does not indicate
that the coffee machine is defective.

water and replace it. Press the start
