Delight in a cup of freshly brewed coffee every morning with the Andrew James Filter Coffee Machine. With a large capacity for plenty of coffee ready to start the day, along with a reusable filter as an environmentally friendly feature, this kitchen gadget is sure to be one you’ll reach for every morning.
The high-grade glass carafe holds up to 1.8 litres of water, which can be enough to make up to 15 cups of hot, delicious coffee. There are volume markers on the side of the glass so you can see how much water you are adding to the coffee machine via the easy-to-use flip-up lid. The lid helps to minimise splashes and spills as well as making it really easy for you to refill. The carafe itself also has a handle to make it easy to pour.
How Do I Use My Andrew James Filter Coffee Machine?
Making coffee is simple to do with the easy-to-use control panel and the clear LCD display. A single push of a button and you can enjoy a cup of hot, delicious coffee to wake you up in the morning. Simply lift up the lid and pour cold water into the water tank to the required level.* Place the sizable coffee jug on the hot plate, ensuring the coffee lid is directly underneath the filter holder hole.
Put the required amount of coffee into the mesh filter and then place it into the filter holder. A 1:2 ratio of scoops to water should create medium to high-strength coffee. Close the top cover and switch on the coffee maker by the mains, and the LCD digital display will turn on. Press the ‘ON’ button to turn on the ‘RUN’ mode indicator light, as well as making the digital display light up, and the machine will start to make your coffee.
After your coffee machine has finished, there will be no water left in the tank. The coffee will be kept warm if the machine is switched on and the coffee pot is kept on the heating plate. The coffee in the pot can be warmed at the following temperatures:
Please note that the appliance will stop heating automatically after 35 minutes.
See the Extra Info tab for instructions on what to do before you use your Andrew James Coffee Machine for the first time.
Are There Any Other Features?
You can set your machine to start making coffee whenever you want it by using the delay timer of up to 2 hours. If you’re slightly delayed, the warming plate will keep the carafe warm for up to 30 minutes so you can go back for a top-up without it going cold. Also, the anti-drip design prevents the coffee from being dispensed if the carafe isn’t present.
With your machine, you also receive a measuring spoon to help you add the right amount of filter coffee every time.
How Do I Clean it?
The Andrew James Filter Coffee Machine is very easy to clean. Simply wipe the main body of the coffee maker with a wet cloth only, making sure that the coffee pot has cooled down completely before cleaning. Removable parts, including the coffee pot, filter holder, and the mesh filter, should always be hand washed in warm water with a neutral detergent. The filter holder can be removed by lifting the handle up.
Always make sure you always remove the plug from the socket before you clean the appliance.

Please note that this machine does not have a memory function.
To keep your machine in top condition, you should regularly remove mineral deposits from the appliance. The amount of times you remove mineral deposits depends on how often you use your appliance, however we recommend you follow the descaling process every 30 days.
Fill the water tank with water and descaler to the ‘MAX’ level, using a ratio of 1 part descaler to 4 parts water. Please use household descaler and not industrial descaler - citrus juice can also be used. Place the carafe onto the warm plate and run a brew cycle without placing coffee into the filter holder. After the coffee machine has percolated the equivalent of 1 cup, press the ‘ON/OFF’ button once. Leave the solution to work in the appliance for 15 minutes. Then, run another brew cycle until all the descaler has passed through the appliance. Run clean water through the appliance another 3 times before using again.
You can also descale your appliance by using white vinegar. Simply mix 1 part water with 1 part distilled white vinegar. Run the solution through the machine but make sure to remove any coffee first. Once the solution has run through, discard. Lastly, rinse the machine by running fresh water through it 3 times.
