The 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker maximizes your brewing flexibility and offers more brewing options than most coffeemakers. To start your day, you can use the single-serve side to brew into a standard-size cup or brew up to a 14 oz. travel mug. What's more, you have the choice of brewing with a single-serve pack or your favorite ground coffee. On mornings when you want to enjoy cup after cup, or when you?re entertaining, the carafe side makes a full 12-cup pot. So much in so little space, the 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker provides maximum flexibility for your coffee drinking enjoyment.
Brewing with a Single-Serve Pack
For some java drinkers, pouring fresh-ground coffee into their coffeemaker is the perfect start to their day. For other coffee lovers, being able to quickly insert a pre-packaged, single portion pack into their coffeemaker and enjoy a piping hot cup in a few minutes is a match made in heaven. The 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker offers the added convenience factor of a pack holder, which allows quick instant brewing in less time than an in-store caf? experience. Simply insert the single-serve pack and push the lever down - that's it.
Brewing with Ground Coffee
Pre-packaged coffee isn't for everyone or every palate. The 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker caters to coffee aficionados by featuring a single-serve permanent filter brew basket that holds a variety of fresh-tasting ground coffee. You can grind your own coffee beans to the medium-grind setting or save time and purchase pre-ground coffee. Brands such as Folgers, Maxwell House, Dunkin? Donuts, and Starbucks are recommended because they are medium-grind coffees.
About Homemade Brewing
Did you know that 86% of coffee drinkers still brew most of their java at home? With more and more Americans picking up the coffee habit and cutting back to save money, coffeemakers are now being designed to be more feasible and economical for the home budget and lifestyle.

Tips & Care
The 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker performs best with medium-grind coffee; coffee that is too finely ground may affect the extraction time or filtering process. Keep ground coffee below MAX fill line and do not use more than 14 ounces (410 ml) of water. When using the single-serve pack holder, press down on the edge of the pack until the pack clicks into place and the hole is punched in the bottom - do not remove foil. Allow two minutes to cool in-between brews.
The brew basket and single-serve pack holder should be rinsed after every use. Removable parts, such as the single-serve pack Holder, brew basket, permanent filter and cup rest are all dishwasher safe. For trouble-free maintenance, the 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker should be cleaned internally once a month, by pouring 1/2 cup plain white vinegar and 1/2 cup cold water into the water reservoir, brewing and then running 2-3 cycles of cold tap water before making the next round of coffee.
