A clean Coffeemaker is essential for making great tasting coffee. Regular cleaning,
as specified in CLEANING YOUR COFFEEMAKER, is highly recommended.
Always use fresh, cold filtered or bottled water in your Coffeemaker.
Fine grind coffee (such as Gevalia) promotes fuller extraction and provides a rich,
full-tasting coffee. Regular grind coffee will require slightly more coffee grounds per
cup to provide the strength of a finer grind.
Store coffee in a cool, dry place. Once coffee has been opened, keep it tightly sealed
in the refrigerator or freezer to maintain its freshness.
For optimum coffee flavor, buy whole beans and grind them just before brewing.
Do not re-use coffee grounds as this will lessen the coffee flavor.
Reheating coffee is not recommended. Coffee is at its peak flavor immediately after
