Question about Gevalia Coffee for Two 85188 Coffee Maker
No Kroger stores near us
I'm not sure you can. I did exactly the same thing, the very first time I used it -- I phoned Breville support and they told me to try soaking the filter in 2 tsp of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water. Which kinda seemed to work, although it was bit occasionally reluctant to give me my damned coffee.
I struggled on with it for maybe a year, but then the rubber seal around the bit the filter connects to blew out (with rather dramatic results). I think the extra pressure of the blocked filter did more damage that I suspected.
I got it serviced and they replaced both the seal and the filter. Worked great after that...
...until last week, when water started pouring out where no water should pour. Turns out that the black lock block that the filter holder goes into has developed a crack.
Looks like another trip to the service agent for me.
In short, you could try cleaning the 1-cup filter, but I would reccommend giving it up as a bad job and just buying another.
Before It Is Too Late.

I have this manual (CM500) and can scan/email it to you if you send me your email address...also I am looking for a replacement lid for my carafe for this machine if anyone is looking to get rid of theirs!
