Caution – Gevalia XCE8 User Manual
Pause & Serve: Allows you to interrupt the brewing cycle and pour a cup of
coffee before the entire brewing cycle is completed.
While this will temporarily stop the coffee from dripping into the Glass
Carafe, it does not stop the brewing cycle. After serving, the Glass Carafe
should be immediately returned to the Warming Plate to prevent the Filter
Basket from overflowing. Do not remove the Carafe for more than 30
seconds as the Filter Basket may overflow.
If the Carafe is not fully seated on the Warming Plate, the Pause & Serve
feature will not function properly. This could cause hot water or hot coffee
When the Carafe is securely in place, it engages a lever which allows the
coffee to drip. Please make sure that the Glass Carafe is securely in
place and positioned firmly on the Warming Plate.

HOW TO USE YOUR COFFEEMAKER
PREPARING YOUR COFFEEMAKER FOR USE:
Carefully unpack the Coffeemaker and remove all packing materials.
Before making coffee in your Coffeemaker, thoroughly clean your Glass Carafe,
Carafe Lid and Removable Filter Basket with warm soapy water. Rinse and dry.
Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
You may wipe the Warming Plate with a clean damp cloth, however, do not
immerse the Coffeemaker in water or other liquids.
Note: Prior to brewing your first pot of Gevalia coffee, we recommend that you run one
brew cycle through the Coffeemaker using cold water only, without ground coffee or a
paper filter. This will remove any dust that may have settled inside the Coffeemaker.
Use only cold filtered or bottled water for best results.
