BEFORE YOU USE
Before using your new coffee brewer for the first time,
or if the machine has not been used for some time, we
recommend first rinsing the water receptacle. Fill the coffee
brewer with cold water and operate once or twice without
POWER SUPPLY CORD
The short power supply cord is provided to reduce risks
resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over
a longer cord. If an extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord must be at least as
great as the rating of the coffee brewer. The extension cord
must be a grounding type 3 cord.
The extension cord should be arranged so it doesn’t drape
over the counter or table top where it can be pulled over by
children or tripped over.
IMPORTANT: This coffee brewer is equipped with a special
cord and plug, which in case of damage should be replaced
by a matching cord and plug. This can be obtained from
your Moccamaster service point.
• Please discard the filter and coffee grounds by
disposing of them in an organic waste container or
compost heap. If not available, you may dispose of
filters and grounds in normal household waste.
• For environmental concerns, please recycle responsibly.
Do not throw away the appliance with the normal
household waste, but hand it in at an official collecting
point for recycling. By doing this, you help preserve the

Locking the footplate in place (Thermoserve only)
• Tilt coffee brewer backwards slightly.
• Hook footplate’s vertical rim into the cut away
opening, then lower brewer. Footplate is now
locked in place.
• Place the thermos on the footplate, so it presses
the white button on the inner base.
1. Power switch should be in the off position.
2. Fill the water container with fresh COLD water by hand or press the
autofill button (optional feature).
3. Place a fluted filter into the filter cone. Fill the paper with the
required amount of filter fine ground coffee and slide the filter cone
firmly into position.
4. Place an empty carafe underneath the filter cone and switch the
5. A green brewing light will illuminate to indicate that the machine is
brewing. It will go out then the brewing cycle is completed.
6. The machine ON switch also controls the bottom hotplate, so leave
the switch on whilst keeping the coffee hot. The top hotplate (if
present) has its own switch on top of the main ON switch.
7. Make sure all hotplates are switched OFF when the carafes are
empty. Overheating empty glass will weaken the glass.
8. Always remove used coffee/filter paper from the filter pan at the
end of each brew. NEVER use the hotplate to re-heat coffee or other

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
• Disconnect the machine before regular cleaning with a damp (NOT
WET) cloth and wipe dry afterwards. Never immerse machine in liquid.
Other parts, such as carafes, lids, brew baskets may be washed in the
• DESCALE THE MACHINE REGULARLY. FAILING TO DESCALE WILL CAUSE
THE BOILER TO OVERHEAT AND EVENTUALLY THE FUSE TO TRIP.
If the descale light illuminates, the machine should be descaled
• Unscrew the drainage plug – under the lid of the cold water container
– and turn the machine upside down to drain the residual water from
• Fill the container with the correctly diluted descaler.
• Do not switch the machine on, but simply allow the descaler to
gravity feed in the boiler from where it will work its way through the
system. A chemical reaction between the scale and the descaler –
clearly visible as foaming – forces the descaler through the boiler into
the brew basket/carafe.
TIP: if you unscrew the drainage plug under the lid of the cold water container, you
will see active foaming. For as long as that continues, there is still scale in the boiler! In
that case, simply pour some more cold descaler into the cold water tank to continue
descaling until the active foaming stops.
ATTENTION: NEVER turn the machine on with the screw cap on
the drainage plug open, as you could burn yourself!
• Depending on the amount of scale in the boiler, the descaling process
may take some time. The machine will however descale itself and
does not require you to stand over it whilst it happens.
• After descaling, boil at least three carafes of water through the
machine to remove all traces of descaling agent.
Protection from frost
• Unplug machine from the mains.
• Unscrew the drainage plug under the lid of cold water container.
• Remove all residual water from the machine by turning it upside
• Before using the machine again, replace and tighten drainage plug.
