2-Way Brewing Options Whichever way you decide to brew, the 2-Way Brewer lets you do both. For a single cup when you’re on the go, the “single-serve side” lets you add grinds directly into the mesh filter that fits the brew basket or insert a soft pod with the pod holder. For the stronger caffeine fixes or on days you want to enjoy cup-after-cup without brewing each time, the “carafe-side” makes a full 12-cup pot for your drinking disposal. And if you forget to turn it off, no worries. The Two-Way Brewer’s nonstick, keep-hot plate retains the piping-hot coffee after brewing and shuts off automatically after two hours.
Brew in Advance and Wake Up to Hot Coffee Want to sleep in for five more minutes? Go ahead, get some more beauty sleep and take advantage of the built-in, programmable clock and timer. Its hour and minute features let you program your ideal coffee-drinking time up to 24 hours in advance.
Single-Serve Brew Function With the mesh filter that’s included, adding your flavored, decaf or premium roast brand coffee grinds couldn’t be easier. Just remember that more isn’t always necessarily better in this case; use slightly less coffee grinds to avoid overflow and weaker-tasting coffee. Also, when planning to brew, look for coffee beans that were recently roasted (within a week is best) and grind them every time you make a fresh cup.
Brewing with Soft Pods No time for measuring or scooping? Prefer the convenience of quickly dropping in a pre-packaged, pre-flavored pod? The Two-Way Brewer is designed with a pod holder that brews any brand of soft pod coffee and still gives coffee drinkers the complete sensory experience of tasting freshly ground coffee, without the hassle of messy grinds or exact measuring. For coffee lovers who live for the pleasure of roasting their own beans every day, this Two-Way Brewer offers an added bonus for the extra effort. Equipped with a Brew Strength Selector, you can you choose REGULAR and give your tastebuds the simplicity of standard medium-grind coffee, or you can go BOLD and select a decaf, finer grind or a premium roast brand, such as Starbucks™ or Melitta™ for richer flavor.
About Beans, Grounds and Soft Pods* Did you know that there are four factors that can dramatically reduce a coffee’s freshness? Oxygen, moisture, heat and light. Keep in mind that because less of its surface area is exposed to air, whole bean coffee typically stays fresh longer than ground coffee. According to the National Coffee Association of USA, it’s recommended that brewers should ration out individual amounts of coffee to grind and brew every time, to preserve its freshness and ensure better-tasting coffee. *Source: 2010, National Coffee Association, USA, Inc.
TIPS & CARE
Remember, the 2-Way Brewer unit will only brew one side at a time. For a particular preference, simply switch the lever left or right. The unit can be used with any soft pod coffee brand, available in the coffee aisle of your local grocery store, or with any loose coffee grounds. The 2-Way Brewer is not compatible with the K-Cup® pack. When in doubt about freshness, look for a "use by" date on the package or follow the online recommendations of your coffee brand. To avoid overflow of ground coffee, use slightly less coffee when brewing decaf or flavored brands. For hotter coffee: rinse the travel mug with warm water; then replace with travel mug lid and brew directly into the travel mug with lid in place. Remember, adding cold milk or cream to your coffee can affect the heat. First, warm milk or cream before adding to ensure the hottest cup.
