- Choose Your Coffee: If you like a more traditional, mild coffee, go with Folgers
Classic Roast® Coffee. If you prefer strong, bold flavors, try
French Roast or Black Silk varieties.
- Add Your Water: Fill the carafe with cold water to your desired capacity. Serving
size: 6 fluid ounces. Measure water using a standard liquid measuring cup. Pour
the water in the reservoir and put the carafe back on the heating plate.
- Measure Your Grounds: Add the desired amount of grounds to the filter: about 1 tablespoon
per 5 to 6 fluid ounces of cold water for regular coffee, and 2 tablespoons per
5 to 6 fluid ounces for strong coffee. Or check out our helpful
Measurement Chart and Cups Calculator.
- Turn On Your Coffeemaker: Put the filter basket back in the holder, close the lid, and turn on the coffee maker.
