Drip coffee machines are great at producing large volumes of coffee without much effort. Excellent for very busy families or businesses.  With great coffee and a good recipe the result is classic tasty coffee you can enjoy throughout day.

  1. Place the paper filter in the brew basket.
  2. For 8 cups add 60g of coffee ground for filter and tap to even out the grounds then place into your machine.
  3. Add 1L of cold water to the water reservoir to fill to the 8 cup marker.
  4. Place carafe (coffee pot) under the brew basket and turn on and start your brew.
  5. Wait several minutes for brew to finish dripping.

Pro tips

  • Grind coffee immediately before use. Nothing beats freshly ground coffee.
  • Brew to order. Avoid using hot plates to maintain temperature of the coffee.  This “bakes” the coffee and compromises the quality in the cup.
  • Heat your Carafe before use.
  • Before brewing, rinse your paper filter with boiling water to remove the “papery” taste.
  • Use filtered water for best flavour results
  • Invest in a good brewer. Machines have come a long way in the last ten years. We recommend the Breville Precision Brewer and the Moccamaster.
