Setting Your Cuisinart Coffee Maker
Making a cup of delicious coffee with your Cuisinart coffee maker is easy. Follow these simple steps to get the perfect brew.
Step 1: Fill the Water Reservoir
The first step to brewing good coffee is to make sure the water reservoir is filled. Use cold, filtered water for the best tasting cup of coffee. If the level is low, use the measuring lines inside the reservoir to fill to the desired amount.
Step 2: Place the Filter
Now that you’ve filled the water reservoir, it’s time to place the filter. The filter should be placed in the holder with the wider side facing down. Make sure the filter is secured in the holder and that the holder is correctly aligned with its slot on the filter assembly.
Step 3: Measure the Coffee
Next you’ll want to measure the coffee beans. The amount of grounds used will depend on the strength of your desired cup of coffee. Using the scoop included with your Cuisinart coffee maker, measure out 2 tablespoons of the grounds for a medium-strength cup of coffee. Fill the filter with the grounds and tap it gently to distribute the grounds evenly.
Step 4: Close the Lid and Brew
Now that you’ve filled the water reservoir, placed the filter, and measured the coffee grounds, you’re ready to brew. Close the lid of the Cuisinart coffee maker and press the “Brew” button. Sit back and let the machine do its job.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
Once the brewing process is complete, you’re ready to serve your fresh cup of coffee. Make sure to remove the filter before pouring your cup. Enjoy your hot beverage, and savor the great taste of freshly brewed coffee!
