    Are you having problems with the regular coffee brew or espresso? I just bought one of these and tried it for the first time today. I made cappucino and haven't tried regular. The capp. was great!

When I brew coffee, I use a mild to medium columbian roast. I then use one tablespoon of coffee grounds for ea 2 cups of water as marked on the pot. The measure of coffee is the same whether you use the ground or the whole bean.

I always use fresh filtered water. Chlorine, flouride, and any other ingredient in the water affects the flavor of the coffee.
I stay away from the french roasts & dark roasts. they are very bitter and frequently taste like ashtray to me.
I assume that the coffee pot uses a 6 oz measure of water for their one cup of coffee.
I frequently check the drip area for coffee sludge buildup. That also affects the coffee flavor if the coffee sits at all.

Hope this helps

    Vintage Sunbeam C50 doesn't heat enough to perk.


    Hi. If you have a light on your coffee pot the model # should 122. A 12 cup older pot. I can fix it for you but you should consider the cost. I only charge for thr parts you need. Shipping both ways is about 10.00 , Max on the repair will be 15.00. My email is callahanronals@att.net Good luck. Ron

    If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

    My 12 cup cuisinart coffee pot keeps shutting off


    I tried a solution someone posted on this site back in Dec and it worked, give it a try: "I called the company about the "shutting off after a brewing cycle" problem and they had me turn the dial to "auto off" and set the time to two hours. You do this by holding down the "hour" button until it blinks, and then press it again until you get the desired hours that the warming plate will be on. Hope this helps."

    My 25cup Farberware urn quit perking coffee can it be reasonbly repaired?


    I have the same urn and had the same problem.

    There are 3 common causes of lost perk that can be dealt with at home, and cause about 1/2 of the failures with these urns. They are very common when the pots are used rarely or carelessly cleaned after use, and when coffee is ground too fine for perc (drip grind is too fine for perc). As long as the pot is still heating, check these three things:
    1) Clean the _inside_ of the hollow stem )that holds the basket and moves the water from the bottom of the pot to the top), to remove all grounds. You should be able to see clearly through it.
    2) At the bottom of this stem there is a very small cup that has little holes in it and fits into the little well at the bottom of the pot. Make sure these are completely clear.
    3) Scour out the little well so all residue/ grounds are removed and the little cup fits perfectly into the well.

    It is the perfect fit of the two that allows the perc-ing cycle to occur.

    If the pot is not heating, or these cleaning measures do not work, a local electric repair shop can probably do the repair for about 1/2 the cost of a new urn.

    I just had this same problem and after reading this blog I went downstairs, tightened the pot down more and it worked! I usually don't tighten it this much, but will continue to tighten it down hard until the gasket is broken in. Thank you sooooooo much!!!
