Brew a single cup from freshly ground coffee beans instead of pre-packaged pods or capsules, for fresher taste and more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly brew. The machine also offers the versatility and convenience of classic carafe system and tea brewing capabilities. Entertaining is easier when brewing delicious hot coffee into a 42-ounce glass carafe to serve many guests at once. The innovative brewing system automatically adjusts to the amount of ground coffee in the filter, up to 12 tablespoons, fully saturating it for the proper amount of time. For single cups, the coffee concentration can actually be doubled for the strongest flavor possible. Operation is easy and intuitive, with completely customizable brewing and sizing options. It features four preset illuminated brewing buttons for Small Cup, Large Cup, Carafe or Tea. Each single cup button can be easily customized for volume with visual "press and hold" programming. Fast and efficient, it brews a single cup of coffee in less than 60 seconds, and a full 42-ounce carafe in less than 6 minutes. The quick-heat 2.2 bar Italian-made pump system always brews to the optimal temperature above 200 degrees F. An additional tea filter is included to prevent any flavor exchange. The programmable tea button rapidly steeps a cup from 5 to 10 ounces, and the quick brew system provides the fastest results while still maintaining maximum flavor.
