Question about Alfa CM-75 Coffee Maker
1. Can't find a replacement "Glass Coffee Cup Level Gauge" which has broken on one of three urns at our school.
2. We are very disappointed that these urns do not keep coffee hot at all. You can actually stick your finger into the coffee without getting burned! Not so with my Delonghi 55-cup urn which brews very hot coffee. There is such a huge difference! Is there any way we can have these 3 urns fitted with new heating elements ... or do we need to just get rid of them and buy something else?
Sounds like maybe the temperature sensor is cutting it off too early. This is an expensive ($200 US) pot so I would contact the mfr. They might have a quick solution.

Simply fill with COLD water to the number of cups desired.
Place the stem and basket in the pot and put one 8 oz cup of coffee for every 20 cups of water into the basket...when doing 100 cups I add an extra 12 oz of coffee for a good coffee flavor.
Place the perforated lid on the coffee basket that is in the pot (if there is a lid--some do not have a lid). Put the cover for the coffee pot in place.
Turn on if there is a switch.
Give these large pots about 1 minute per cup, brewing time...that is a little over an hour usually to brew 100 cups. The coffee maker will percolate with the water coming up through the stem and over the coffee as the water heats. Usually there is an indicator light that comes on when it is finished.
If holding the coffee for awhile, it tastes best if you remove the stem and basket and it will maintain the heat without doing more "perking" and becoming stronger or bitter.
Be sure to wash it out and dry it well, leaving the lid loose or upside down for storage so that the pot doesn't become pitted. Blessings, Louise
