Important Safeguards

When using electrical appliances, always follow basic safety precautions, including:

  • Unwrap the coffee brewer with care. Remove all packaging materials. Keep plastic and cardboard packaging out of reach of children.
  • Confirm the voltage of the brewer matches your main voltage. The brewer must be plugged into a socket with safety grounding.
  • Place the brewer on a flat surface in a frost-free room.
  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • Do not place ccords plugs, or brewer in water or other liquids.
  • This brewer is not fit for use by adults or children with physical, mental, or sensory disabilities, or a lack of knowledge or experience unless supervised or instructed on its use by a person who is held responsible for the aforementioned individual’s safety.
  • Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow the brewer to cool before cleaning and before putting on or taking off parts.
  • Do not operate the brewer with a damaged cord or plug, or if the brewer malfunctions or is damaged in any way. Return the brewer to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.
  • Using an accessory not recommended by the manufacturer may cause injury or fire.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not let the cord hang over the table or counter edges, and do not let it touch hot surfaces.
  • Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  • To disconnect, turn the power switch to “the OFF” position, then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  • Do not use the brewer for any purpose other than its intended use.
  • Do not remove the brew basket or carafe while brewing.
  • Do not pour any liquids other than water or recommended cleaning products into the water reservoir.
  • Always place all lids in the correct position, as shown in the descriptive images. Scalding may occur if any of these parts are removed during brewing cycles.
  • WARNING: Do not remove the bottom panel of the brewer; doing so will void the warranty. No user-serviceable parts inside. Repair must be done by authorized personnel only.


  • Glass carafe is designed for use with this appliance.
  • Do not set a hot carafe on a cold surface.
  • Never place the carafe over an open flame, hot range cooktop, or another heat source.
  • Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe with loose handles.
  • Do not clean the carafe with abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads, or similar materials.
  • Never place a carafe in an oven or a microwave.


  • Do not use a thermal carafe for storing dairy products or baby food, as these will curdle if kept hot for a longer period.
  • Do not use carbonated beverages.
  • Do not transport the carafe in a horizontal or upside-down position, as it can lead to leakage. Use a special travel lid for transporting.
  • WARNING: Do not drink directly from the thermal carafe. Liquid from the carafe may be very hot.
  • Never place a thermal carafe on a hot/ warm cooking ring, gas cooker, or other heat source.
  • Never place a carafe in an oven or a microwave.
  • Do not clean the carafe with abrasive cleansers, steel wool pads, or similar materials.

Before the first use of your new coffee brewer, or if it has not been used for some time, we recommend running two brew cycles of plain water to rinse the water receptacle.

The power supply cord is short to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. If using an extension cord, its marked electrical rating must be at least as great as the coffee brewer’s electrical rating. The extension cord must be a grounding type 3 cord. The extension cord should not drape over the counter or tabletop where it can be pulled over by children or tripped over.

Directions For Use

Get started with your Moccamaster coffee brewer by following the steps below. For instructions on your specific model, please refer to the brewer guides on the opposite page. We recommend running two brew cycles of plain water before brewing your first pot of coffee.

  1. Set power switch to off.
  2. Firmly attach the outlet arm to the silicone gasket at the top of the cool water reservoir; the fit should feel snug. Caution: The outlet arm is HOT while brewing.
  3. Fill cool water reservoir to the desired level with fresh, cool water. Place the lid on the cool water reservoir.
  4. Place the paper filter in the brew basket. Refer to your specific brewer’s guide for the correct filter type. Caution: Do not remove the lid while brewing; scalding may occur.
  5. Add ground co ee. Refer to the chart below for the recommended formula.
  6. Place brew basket on the bracket; position outlet arm over the center of brew basket. Place lid on brew basket. For manual-adjust brew basket models, adjust the slide to the open position.
  7. Place the carafe into position. For Cup-One, ensure the mug is pressed against studs or nested in the mug tray.
  8. Plug into the grounded outlet. Set the power switch to the “ON” position.
  9. Brewing will begin quickly; water will be brought to a boil, rise through the brewer across the outlet arm, and into the brew basket. Refer to your brewer guide for brew times.

Recommended Water-to-Coffee Ratio
The industry standard for optimal flavor is 2 tbsp. of ground coffee to every 6 oz. of water– or 55 grams of ground coffee per liter.

Best Practices for Best Results

Grind Size
Use a medium to medium-coarse grind. We suggest grinding your coffee either at the time of purchase or at home with a Moccamaster grinder. Note that most pre-ground, bagged coffee tends to be too finely ground for ideal operation.

Check your brewer guide for replacement filter size. We recommend using oxygen-whitened filters. We advise against using gold mesh or other reusable filters, as they can cause inconsistent extraction times and are difficult to clean properly.

If it tastes good to drink, it will make good coffee. We recommend fresh tap, filtered, or bottled water. We do not recommend using reverse osmosis filtered water or distilled water, as it can damage the brewer’s boiling element.

What’s In The Cup
The water-to-coffee ratio we recommend is the approved industry standard, but your taste preferences may vary. If your coffee is too strong, add hot water to your finished cup. If it’s too weak, DO NOT add more coffee – instead, try a different coffee roast or growing region.

Brewing at High Altitudes
Moccamaster’s unique copper element brings water to a boil. At sea level, the boiling temperature is 212°F. The boiling temperature can be as low as 198°F at higher elevations, resulting in cooler brewing temperatures. Rest assured, the brewer is still making great coffee!

Minimum Brew Volume
We recommend brewing no less than 4 cups (16 oz.) in all 8- to 10-cup brewers.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Basic Cleaning
Clean the exterior of your brewer regularly with a moist cloth, wiping dry. Handwash the carafe and brew basket with mild dishwashing detergent after each use. Rinse thoroughly. Carafes are not dishwasher safe. Remove coffee oil stains from thermal carafes by placing a small amount of dishwasher detergent and water in the carafe and allowing it to soak overnight, or use Urnex® or Durgol® cleaning products (follow manufacturer directions).

Descaling Your Brewer
Descale your brewer every 100 cycles (easily remembered after every box of 100-count filters), or a minimum of every three months. We recommend Urnex® or Durgol® descaling products (follow manufacturer directions). You must describe your coffee brewer regularly to maintain performance and warranty coverage. After descaling, always brew 2 full reservoirs of water through the brewer to clear out any remaining descaling product.

Extended Storage and Anti-Frost Protection
If storing the brewer, or leaving the unit unused for longer than 1 week:

  • Turn the brewer off and unplug from the electrical outlet.
  • Remove the outlet arm.
  • Empty any remaining water within the brewer by holding it upside down over the sink.
  • Replace the outlet arm before using the brewer again.

5-Year Limited Warranty

If Moccamaster USA inspects the brewer and finds it to be defective, it will be repaired or replaced without charge to you. If a replacement product is provided, it will assume the remaining warranty of the original product, as described above. This warranty does not apply to any defect arising from a buyer or user’s misuse of the product, including negligent handling, lack of descaling, failure to follow manufacturer’s instructions, modification, alteration, or repair not authorized by Moccamaster USA. If you choose to have someone other than an authorized service center service your brewer, THIS WARRANTY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME NULL AND VOID.

Any liability is expressly limited to an amount equal to the purchase price paid, and all claims for special, incidental, or consequential damages are hereby excluded. Unless otherwise specified, Moccamaster USA makes no other warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, as to the merchantability or fitness of any product for any particular purpose. Moccamaster USA expressly disclaims all warranties and conditions not stated in the limited warranty. Moccamaster USA is not liable for any claim made by a third party or made by a buyer or user for a third party.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights, which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. If you believe your brewer is defective, return it to the location of purchase (within the first 30 days) or contact Moccamaster USA Customer Service at support@moccamaster.com, or 855.662.2200.
