Product Overview

Optional Single-Serve Accessory:
optimizes flavor when brewing 2-4 cups

  • Kalita Wave Filter 185
  • Single-Serve Accessory
    Single-Serve Accessory

Use the Accessory and wave filter inside  the Brew Basket for single-serve brewing.

The Single Serve Accessory was designed for brewing 2–4 cups into the carafe or directly into a mug. Its compact size and shape changes the way the brewing water and grounds interact during the extraction, meaning the Accessory will draw out different nuanced c\haracteristics of your favorite coffee.

Before You Begin

  1. Remove all packaging
  2. Clean and wash all parts
    For detailed cleaning instructions, see p.10
    Caution Icon Do not use abrasive pads, harsh chemicals or spray cleaners. Carafe is not dishwasher safe.
  3. Plug in Coffee Maker
    We selected a short cord for this Coffee Maker to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord. If you need to use a longer cord, an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of Coffee Maker. Make sure the extension cord is arranged so that it cannot be pulled on by children or tripped over.
  4. Run Water-Only 5-8 Cup Brew Cycle
    Fill water tank to MAX fill line.

A Note About Water

Your Coffee Maker uses all of the water you put in the tank every time you brew. Add only as much water as you need for your coffee. For example, if you want to make 3 cups of coffee, only fill the water tank to the 3 cup fill line.

Brew tip: If you’re brewing a single mug, use your mug to measure the water and fill the water tank for a perfect cup.


  • For best results, always use filtered water.
  • Do not use distilled water.
