General information

  • Fill the water tank with clean, cold water only. Never add milk or beverages such as tea or coffee since this will damage the appliance.
  • Never fill the water tank above the marking “8 À” (TKA8A05.) or “10 À” (TKA80.).
  • Use coffee with a medium grind (approx. 6 g per cup).
  • Do not brew less than the minimum amount of three cups since the coffee will not have the desired strength and temperature (1 cup = approx. 125 ml).
  • Never remove the carafe while the machine is brewing coffee since this may cause the filter holder to overflow.
  • Make sure that the carafe’s lid is closed when you place the carafe on the coffee machine.
  • Do not use other carafes since the special drip protector will block the coffee from flowing into the receptacle.
  • Some water accumulation on the filter holder is normal; it does not indicate that the coffee machine is defective.

Before using it for the first time

  • Remove any stickers or film.
  • Pull enough of the power cable out of the storage compartment and plugin.
  • To clean, fill the water tank with 6 cups of water and replace it. Press the ON/OFF switch O; the cleaning program starts.
  • Repeat the cleaning process.
    Note: You may notice a “new machine” smell; this is normal. If this is the case, fill with a vinegar solution (1 cup of vinegar for 5 cups of water) and run the cleaning program. Next, rinse the machine twice with 6 cups of water.
  • Clean the carafe thoroughly.

Brewing coffee

  • Remove the water tank, fill it with water and replace it.
  • Swivel out filter housing.
  • Insert a 1×4 paper filter in the filter holder and add the desired amount of coffee.
  • Flip back the filter housing until it engages.
  • Place the carafe with the lid closed under the filter housing.
  • Press the ON/OFF switch O to start the brewing cycle. At the same time, the auto-off function is activated; the display lights up.

TKA80. only
Info: The appliance has an automatic auto-off (power save) function, which switches off the appliance around 40 minutes after the brewing process is complete.
TKA8A05. only
Info: The appliance has an automatic auto-off (power save) function, which switches off the appliance a few minutes after the brewing process is complete.
Tip: If you rinse out the thermos carafe with hot water before use, the coffee will stay warm even longer.
Important: When the brewing process is complete, wait a moment until all the coffee has run through the filter and into the carafe.
Let the machine cool down for five minutes before brewing a fresh pot.

Low water indicator
This coffee machine senses if the water volume in the water tank is low (less than approx. 4 cups). If the water level is low, lights up and the machine automatically increases the brewing time. This ensures that the coffee retains its ideal flavor.

Thermos carafe

TKA8A05. only
Important: Never use the carafe for keeping dairy products or baby food warm, because bacteria may form. Do not heat the carafe in the microwave or in a regular oven. Never use the carafe to store or transport carbonated beverages. Carefully rinse the carafe after each use.
To keep the lid from permanently vacuum-sealing itself shut, it was designed to not close hermetically. Since the thermos carafe may leak, you should always store and transport it in an upright position. The thermos carafe holds approximately 8 cups.

The lid of the thermos carafe can be opened with the release switch.

  • Open lid (Fig. a)
  • Close lid (Fig. b)
  • Remove lid (Fig. c)

Coffee-making tips

Store ground coffee in a cool place; you can also freeze it. Once a package of coffee has been opened, close it tightly to maintain its aroma.
How the coffee beans are roasted affects their taste and aroma.
Darker roast = more flavor
Lighter roast = more acidity


Never immerse the device in water or place it in the dishwasher!
Don’t steam-clean the appliance.
Unplug the appliance before cleaning it.

  • Clean all parts that came into contact with coffee after each use.
  • Clean the coffee machine’s exterior with a damp cloth; do not use strong or abrasive cleaning agents.
  • Clean the water tank under running water; don’t use a firm brush.
    TKA80. only
  • The glass carafe and its lid are dishwasher-safe.
    TKA8A05. only
  • Rinse out the thermos carafe and lid and wipe its exterior clean with a damp cloth. Do not submerse the carafe in the dishwater or place it in the dishwasher.
    Tip: Stubborn water deposits can be removed with a solution of baking soda, dishwasher powder or effervescent denture cleaning tablets.
  • To prevent bad odors and bacteria from forming, store the thermos carafe with the lid open.


This appliance is equipped with an automatic descaling indicator. If the calc indicator lights up, the machine needs to be descaled.

Regular descaling

  • makes your appliance last longer
  • ensures proper function
  • prevents excessive steam
  • speeds up the brewing process
  • saves energy
    Descale the machine with a commercial descaling agent.
  • Switch off the machine and allow it to cool.
  • Make sure that the carafe’s lid is closed when you place the carafe on the coffee machine.
  • Prepare the descaling solution according to the manufacturer’s instructions and pour it into the water tank.
    Warning: Do not fill with more than 6 cups.
  • Switch the machine on using the ON/OFF switch O.
  • Press and hold down the button to descale calc for at least 2 seconds. The descaling process starts.
  • The program interrupts the process several times for a few minutes in order to let the descaling agent penetrate the deposits. The entire descaling process takes about 30 minutes.
  • When the descaling process is complete, the display calc will no longer light up. Operate the machine twice using clean water, without coffee. Do not fill the tank with more than 6 cups of water.
  • Thoroughly rinse all removable parts and the carafe.


The machine takes noticeably longer or switches itself off before the brewing process is complete.
– The machine needs descaling.
■ Descale the machine as per the instructions. To start the descaling program, press and hold the button calc for at least two seconds.
Tip: If your water is very hard, descale the coffee machine more frequently than requested by the calc indicator. The drip stop leaks.
– It needs to be cleaned.
■ Clean drip-stop (in filter holder) under running water while cleaning it several times with your finger.
