The flashing clock on a coffee maker is annoying and also a sign you may not be using the Mr. Coffee maker to its full potential. When the Mr. Coffee clock is set to the right time, it allows you to set a time to brew a perfect cup that’s waiting for you when you rise in the morning or arrive at home after a busy workday. Follow the correct steps to set the time and use the delay brew option.
People who enjoy using an electronic filter-drip coffeemaker sometimes struggle to use the automatic timer and get their early morning caffeine fix. These machines come with an instruction manual, but by the time the timer needs to be set, this has usually been discarded into the back of the drawer. The best thing that can be done is probably to dig out the little pamphlet. If you have a Gevalia coffeemaker, there is a set of simple rules that can be followed, step-by-step, to set your coffee maker.
Setting the Timer
Locate the Program button. If you’ve been using your Gevalia coffeemaker successfully, you probably know where it is. If this is your first time, it should be near the digital display. Press that button, and the display should now read, “Prog.” You are now ready to begin programming the machine. Press in the time that you wish the coffeemaker to start. This is done by using the buttons which set the time. “Min” will control the minutes, and “Hr” or “Hour” will control the hour. Using these buttons to fine-tune the screen, you should now have the time you wish the coffeemaker to start.
Add coffee grounds and water to the pot, but be sure not to press the “On” button just yet. The coffee maker will come on once the timer triggers it. Hitting the button sooner will trigger the machine to brew the coffee instantly. Don’t forget to add the coffee and water, as this can result in harm coming to the machine, or even a small fire. When all this is done, you should have a small auto light appear on the pot, indicating that the coffeemaker is ready to start brewing the coffee as soon as the right time is reached.
Mr. Coffee Clock Set
When a Mr. Coffee coffee maker is first plugged in, the numbers on the digital display will flash. To set the time, press the hour button until the correct hour appears on the display. Next, hold the minute button until the numbers tick up or down to the current minute.
When the correct time is set, release the buttons. If you go past the correct hour or minute, you can simply press the button until it arrives at the proper time. Once the timer is set, the Mr. Coffee machine is ready to create a perfect cup of coffee at any time of day or the programmed time you prefer. Mr. Coffee manuals will offer troubleshooting tips if the clock won’t set to the correct time.
Use the Delay Brew Option
Setting the Mr. Coffee timer to produce a hot cup of brew first thing in the morning or for that late-night shift can be a pleasant way to start your workday. Mr. Coffee’s service and support staff recommend reading the manual for the specific model of machine you own to properly program the machine up to 24 hours ahead of brewing. Most Mr. Coffee delay-brew options can be set by pressing the Set Delay button and then the hour and minute buttons to get to your desired time.
Some models will have a select/off button that you’ll need to press twice to engage the delay brew function. The button light will turn on to indicate that the delay brew is engaged and the display will automatically return to the current time once completed. The delay brew function will need to be engaged in advance every day that you plan to have a hot cup of coffee waiting for you in the machine at a certain time.
Cleaning the Coffee Maker
If Mr. Coffee’s delay-brew light is blinking, it could mean that the machine needs a good cleaning. Good Housekeeping recommends decalcifying the coffee maker every month with a good dose of vinegar to remove hard water minerals. Mix equal parts of water and vinegar and fill the water reservoir. Put a paper filter in the coffee machine’s empty basket and place the pot on the hot plate as usual.
Brew the vinegar and water solution until it has drained halfway. Turn the Mr. Coffee machine off and allow the acidic solution to sit for 30 minutes before turning the unit back on to finish the brewing cycle. Rinse the pot out and brew a full pot of clean water twice to remove the vinegar taste.
Brewing a Small Pot
The buttons on the Cuisinart coffee maker are meant to help you create your ideal cup of hot brew. If you prefer a strong, bold brew, GGC Coffee recommends you use the 1-4 settings on the Cuisinart coffee maker. The Cuisinart coffee maker 1-4 button is meant to be used when you’re making a small batch. For a quick solo cup or a better morning brew for one or two people, use the 1-4 button on the Cuisinart coffee maker.
The coffee maker changes the way it pours the heated water over the ground beans to produce a more concentrated flavor. When the Cuisinart coffee maker 1-4 button is activated, the coffee maker produces a slower stream of water. This helps the coffee grounds to extract a more even flavor and produce the best brew from the beans.
The coffee maker is a hard-working small appliance, creating that caffeinated cup to perfection over and over. Setting the timer can offer the added benefit of waking up to a fresh cup and the delicious aroma of coffee.
