Have you tried using bottled water? I had the same problem and found that Spring water tasted the best.

Try cleaning the peircing mechanism (and around it) and making sure it is sitting snug. Sometimes mine comes off when I lift the lid to add a t-disc and this can cause some problems including grinds in the cup.

You may need to get a new peircing mechanism from Braun - if you've only had it for a month they should replace it.

Might there be some stuff crusting the dispanser vent? Did you clean it regularly? If you've not done that, this is what you do:

1) Open up the lid where the T-Disc is supposed to go.

2) Take out any moveable (not breakable) object, for instance the thing that punctuates the T-Disc(its made of two parts stuck together) and the T-Disc holder.

3) Take 'em apart and put 'em into your dishwasher or wash it by hand.

4) Wipe the entire T-disc area with a damp cloth, make sure nothing stays there that isn't supposed to be there.

5) Put the removed and cleaned parts back very carefully and watch out that they are exactly in place, if in doubt wheter they are fitted correctly, just shake them a little. There should be no movement other than up and down.

6) Enjoy your coffee!

For a 30 cup pot how much coffee do you put in

According to West Bend...30 cups = 1 ¾ cups ground coffee; add more if you prefer it stronger.

Coffee pot turns stops brewing in the middle of the cycle

If this is not an electrical problem, try the following:

Try running a cup of WHITE vinegar (of course without the coffee), this will clear out anything on the path.

Once you do this, run 5 cups of plain water (again without coffee) twice to clear out any vinegar flavor from the path.

The water isn't fully coming out when brewing a cup of coffee and won't fill the cup. I am maybe getting 1/4 cup of coffee


what you will have to do to solve this problem is that you will have to do self cleaning on the coffee maker

however, (not the bathroom one) is a handy item to use to clean coffee residue off the inside of a glass coffee carafe.
  • Does your pot have hard to reach areas? Use a wooden chopstick with a paper towel to get in there.
  • You can put ice cubes and a little water(enough so you can swirl it around) in pot and swirl them around, for harder stains put some table salt in pot and swirl it around for a few minutes and then rinse.
  • Put a glass marble in the water chamber to attract mineral deposits from hard water. Wash it once a week.
  • For tough stains, scrub the pot using a paper towel or clean (not soapy) dish towel. Rinse thoroughly.
  • To clean just the pot, do what many restaurants do. Put about two cups of ice, 1/4 cup of rock or table salt, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh is fine) and swirl around the pot. Measurements are not that important, just guesstimate. Be sure that the pot is cold before you try this, or you may break the glass pot.
  • Clean a brand new coffee pot prior to using it for the first time.
  • Never use the coffee pot to pour water into the reservoir. This will transfer oils and impurities from the pot, and eventually give the coffee a nasty taste. Instead, use a pitcher that is reserved for water only.
  • To keep the inside area around basket, filter, lid area clean (from coffee ground spatter) simply place a SECOND filter over the top of the grounds in the FIRST filter. Push second filter down so that spout will clear top of second filter (on many makes of coffee makers) as lid is closed. This keeps interior in pristine condition and doesn't take much time or expense.

Will not percolate. Water is poured, it heats up, no coffee brew

Bunn Home brewers don't perculate. They work the same way that commercial brewers do. Fillit with water, let it heat for about 20 minutes, then put your filter and coffee grounds in the funnel, pour a pot of water into the machine, put the pot on the warmer, and let the water run through. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.

I don't know how to make coffee.

The best way, if using ground coffee, 1 teaspoon per cup. Depends how big your coffee pot holds of water. So if you're planning to make coffee for 12 cups, just put in 12 teaspoons. Best Part is you can ground your own fresh ground coffee, or ground them at your Favorite Store, like Hazelnut etc.

You can buy the pouches. They make them for 4 cups 6 cups 8 cups, etc. (Like the ones they give you when you stay at the hotel). Fill the proper amount of water, for cups you're making.

My favorite are the single cups. Folgers makes them in regular and decaf. Look like tea bags, and they for 1 Medium Cup of Coffee. After you are done, just throw away.
Good Luck :0)

The perfect cup!

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

Coffee is weak

Check where the water comes out under the brew filter. It sounds like you may be missing the sprayhead. It is a round metal or plastic piece that is screwed on to the water dispense area and acts like a little showerhead forcing water evenly over the coffee grounds. If it is missing, the coffee will be weak. Check the water temperature. If it isn't hot enough, the coffee will be weak.

Revere Ware old fashioned coffee pot

1) Boil the water you’ll need in another pot.
2) Put 1 tablespoon of ground coffee (drip grind, not percolator grind) in the reduced diameter, perforated bottom of the brewing chamber.
3) Put the grind/water separator (the perforated, flat handled plate with cup markings on the handle) in the Brewing Chamber, over the coffee grounds.
3) Put the Brewing Chamber on top of the Holding Chamber.
4) Pour the appropriate number of cups boiling water into the brewing chamber; put the lid with the black knob on the brewing chamber.
5) Let the water drain through the coffee grinds (5-10 minutes).
6) Remove Brewing Chamber, clean out the coffee grounds, and replace the lid on the holding chamber.
7) Enjoy your coffee! Keep it warm on the stove at LOW heat setting.
