This is from the FAQ section of West Bend's website at www.focuselectrics.com:

As a guideline, use the following amounts of ground coffee for the number of cups being prepared. Use standard measuring cups ( as used to measure flour, sugar, etc.) to measure the coffee. The amounts of coffee below will brew mild to medium strength coffee which most people prefer. The amount of coffee can be adjusted to suit personal preference. As a guide, there are about 5 cups of coffee to a pound (16 ounces).

• 12 - 18 Cups Coffee = 1 - 1 1/4 Cups Grounds
• 20 - 25 Cups Coffee = 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 Cups Grounds
• 28 - 36 Cups Coffee = 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Grounds
• 40 - 45 Cups Coffee = 2 - 2 1/2 Cups Grounds
• 50 - 60 Cups Coffee = 3 - 4 Cups Grounds
• 70 - 80 Cups Coffee = 4 1/2 - 5 Cups Grounds
• 90 - 100 Cups Coffee = 5 1/2 - 6 1/4 Cups Grounds

• Hope this helps. You might also be able to download the manual from there if you look for your model.

Instead of searching for a manual for making coffee, I would suggest you to switch to green tea because it has more health benefits than coffee and will come in affordable prices.

### Where can I replacement filters for a 100 cup West Bend coffee maker?

The West Bend Large Capacity Coffemakers do not use replacement filters. The manual for the West Bend 33600 Large Coffee Urn is available here:

http://www.westbend.com/supportdata/L5613B_LargeCapacityUrns-All.pdf

Use an electric perk or regular grind coffee in the percolator basket rather than a 'drip' or finely ground coffee that would require a filter.

If you require a new basket, please see the West Bend on-line replacement part site here:

### West Bend 36 cup coffee maker amounts

It's a percolator. Use about 1 heaping teaspoon of coffee per cup. Each coffee pot is different. You will have to adjust the amount of coffee for what you like.
