How do I make coffee in a MICROWAVE COFFEE BREWER

I haven't before encountered a microwave coffee maker but I expect it is similar to one of the established coffee maker designs but constructed of non-metallic materials.

I expect it is a variation on the percolator where water in the lower chamber boils (locally) and in doing so is forced through a tube or a channel into the top chamber where it runs through the coffee grounds back into the lower chamber and the process continues until the water is at a uniform temperature just below boiling point and the process is either halted or stops automatically.

The amount of water will depend on the capacity and coffee makers tend to be sized in how many cups of coffee they will hold and the one cup size is fairly common but so is the six cup size. The amount of coffee will also depend on the capacity and the required strength, the blend and the roast and how coarsely it is ground.

You will need to experiment, probably using full power to force the water to boil fairly violently. I suggest starting with a moderately heaped dessertspoonful per large cup.

I hope this helps, apologies in advance if I got it wrong.

Hi ,Does this coffee maker require filters? How many scoops of coffee for 60 cups?? DCU60T


No filters needed... just dump the coffee on the top pan....

I like my coffee strong and use about 1 cup per 10 cups of may want to adjust to your tastes...
We use one of those units at church... they are a great unit...there they use a bit less cause many don't like it quite that 3/4 cup per 10 cups....

Heating the cup more than coffee

make sure the stirrer motor located under the outer cover that distributes the microwaves is turning otherwise you will get hot and cold spots in the oven cavity

Coffee to water ratio

Weak coffee is 2 tsp per cup strong coffee is 3 tsp or 1 Tbls per cup. (3 tsp per Tblsp) 32 Tablespoons = 2 Cups, there are 4 Tblsp per 1/4 cup. If you're confused ( I am from reading my answer) Use 1 cup for weak coffee, two cups for strong or 1 & 1/2 for regular strength coffee. Hope that helps!

I have a Kenmore Brew Wave that has cracked in the plastic unit that you put the water in to make coffee. Where can I find a replacement. Had a job getting a new carafe when it cracked.

Sears do not make the carafe anymore but this is something that I do that may help?
I took the top off the carafe an just placed it to the top of my coffee cup and sat the top part the holds the coffee on top of it and just poured the hot water from a cup I heated in the microwave. Do it very slowly until you get the it right for you, it works for and I hope it will do the same for you guys ?

How does it make coffee?

You fill it to the line indicating how many cups of coffee you want to make. Then you add coffee to the brew basket, at least 1 full heaping teaspoon per cup. Put the basket on top of the stem and place the stem into the coffee maker. Put the lid on and plug it in. That's it. Don't plug it in without the lid, it's a percolator. It will squirt the water out the top of the stem and it flows down through the coffee grounds.
