Coffee Maker Setup

  • Check Installation: Ensure all components, including the silicone water bridge, internal mixing tube, and RainmakerTM showerhead, are correctly installed. Place the Coffee Maker in a well-ventilated area, avoiding operation under cabinets.

Note: While recommended, the Coffee Maker can function without the internal mixing tube.

  • Water Reservoir: Fill the reservoir with clean, cold water, maintaining levels between the "2 Cup" and "MAX" markings.
  • Securely close the reservoir lid.
  • Prepare Brew Basket: Open the brew basket lid and insert a No.4 cone-shaped paper filter.
  • Ensure the brew basket lid is closed securely.
  • Add Coffee Grounds: Pour medium-ground coffee into the filter, using approximately 8 grams per cup (5 fl oz).
  • Use one level scoop of coffee per cup, following SCAA recommendations for optimal extraction.
  • Select Cup Range: Access the cup setting menu by pressing the OXO button or twisting the dial.
  • Choose the appropriate cup range (2–4 or 5–9) based on the desired number of cups.
  • Initiate Brewing Cycle: Start the brewing cycle by pressing the OXO button.
    - The illuminated LED ring indicates that brewing has begun.

Brewing Cycle

  • Brewing Adjustments: The Coffee Maker adjusts brewing time for optimal extraction based on the selected cup range.
  • The internal water pump follows a programmed coffee bloom cycle and brief pauses within the brewing cycle for extraction optimization.
  • Pause and Pour Feature: Removing the carafe during brewing triggers a 60-second pause in the brew cycle to prevent spills.
  • Brewing resumes if the carafe is replaced within 60 seconds.
  • Completion and Freshness Timer: Once brewing is complete, the icon appears, and the freshness timer counts up to 60 minutes.
  • For the best taste, consume coffee within one hour of brewing.

Coffee Tips

  • Water Quality: Use fresh water for the best-tasting coffee. Consider bottled or filtered water if local water quality is poor, avoiding distilled water.
  • Storage: Divide large portions of coffee beans into one- or two-week portions stored in tinted, airtight containers. Refrigeration is not recommended.
  • Grinding: Grind coffee beans just before brewing using a medium grind suitable for automatic drip coffee makers. The OXO On Conical Burr Coffee Grinder with Integrated Scale is recommended.

Additional Information

  • Maintenance Recommendations: Regularly clean the Coffee Maker using OXO Machine Wash to maintain performance and appearance.
    - Descaling may be necessary based on water quality. Refer to the user manual for instructions.
  • Optional Accessories: Consider the OXO Glass Carafe for an alternative brewing experience.
  • Use a microfiber towel to wipe down the Coffee Maker's surface. Diluted OXO Machine Wash can remove coffee stains from metal parts, avoiding abrasive brushes or scrub pads.
