How to Use Carafe Side coffee machine hamilton beach

Tips for Best-Tasting Coffee 
• All coffees are made from either arabica beans or robusta beans, or some combination of both. Arabica beans are slightly more expensive, but tend to produce better-tasting coffee. 
• Ground coffee will become stale much faster than whole beans. If buying preground coffee, choose a package with the latest expiration date or a smaller quantity. 
• If grinding whole beans, set your coffee grinder on a fine/medium grind. This will yield the best-tasting grounds. Try to use freshly ground coffee within about a week of grinding. 
• Using a water filter, filtered water, or bottled water will yield bettertasting coffee than tap water. 
• Use approximately 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of grounds for each cup of coffee being made. To avoid overflow, use slightly less grounds (3/4 tablespoon [11.3 ml) when brewing decaf or flavored coffees. Also, be aware that using coffee that is ground too finely may also cause the filter basket to overflow. 
• Make sure your coffee maker is clean. See “Care and Cleaning” sections.
