Re: Magic Comfort machine won't make one cup of decaf...
Make sure to use pre-ground coffee only (MEDIUM
ground) and not soluble coffee.
Question- check to see where the coffee is going- did it end up in the brew group- but you did not get coffee? Then, the filter is clogged. Clean the filter. If you have used oily beans, they can clog filter easily.

YOu lift up the the half-moon cover on the top of the machine. Pour your decaf pre-ground coffee in there, close lid and push the button that has a scoop on it. Then push your choice of cup, large or small.
If you are putting the ground coffee into the little override container for decaf coffee I had the same problem because I was using a bit too much ground coffee so it dumped it out rather than making a cup. Once I ensured that I was using one level scoop only, not more, it worked.
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)
Hi When you push the water button, how is the flow? If it is OK its not your boiler. What happens when you press the pre-ground button but don't put any coffee in. If it brews correctly( not slow) your grind is too fine. Just push the lever below the bean hopper back 2 clicks. If you are still brewing slow you may have a plug of coffee in your brew head. A pinch of automatic dish washing detergent in the brew unit funnel, then push the pre-ground button again. This can break up the clog and allow a normal brew. You don't want to use vinegar in your machine. It leaves a taste for a while. Citric acid is what you want.
Happens when the preground coffee is not ground fine enough, you may have to put the pre ground coffee in a manual coffee grinder to make it finer. The machine is not really designed to brew regular coffee grounds.
