Your model sounds like the West Bend 59055 - Large Coffee Urn, 60 Cup.
The User Manual for your coffer urn can be found here:

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

Instruction for making coffee can be found on page 5. For 55 cups is would take 3 1/4 cups of coffee.

Use an electric perc or regular grind coffee; if you grind your own this should be a medium to coarse grind.

Do not use 'drip' or finely ground coffee as this could plug the drain holes in the basket and cause the urn to flood.

SOURCE: How does it make coffee?

You fill it to the line indicating how many cups of coffee you want to make. Then you add coffee to the brew basket, at least 1 full heaping teaspoon per cup. Put the basket on top of the stem and place the stem into the coffee maker. Put the lid on and plug it in. That's it. Don't plug it in without the lid, it's a percolator. It will squirt the water out the top of the stem and it flows down through the coffee grounds.

Coffee Amounts


How much coffee should I use?

4-Cup Quik Drips - We recommend using 1 tablespoon automatic drip or ""all grind"" coffee for each cup being made. You can adjust the amount to suit your personal preference but DO NOT USE MORE THAN 2 TABLESPOONS per cup being made. If more than 2 tablespoons per cup are used flooding of the basket may occur.

10 and 12 Cup Quik Drips - We recommend using 1 tablespoon automatic drip or ""all grind"" coffee for each cup being made. If making less than 4-cups of coffee, add an extra tablespoon of coffee for better flavor. You can adjust the amount of coffee used to suit your personal preference.
