Recently got Bosch Filter Coffee Maker for review, as I started my You Tube channel, planned to take the review through my You Tube channel. As my hubby is a coffee person, coffee is been most important in our home; also I love to have black coffee with sugar.

Let me share my experience in words –

I got my unit which was red in color with the model no – TKA3A034

  • Features
    • A water tank – which holds 10 cups of water
    •  A swing off filter – where we add the filter coffee powder, but you need to get a filter paper cup or a reusable filter cup which doesn’t comes with the unit. I bought mine (reusable filter basket) online. The swing off filter is detachable and dishwasher safe.
    • A safe storage jug – where the decoction gets collected, also this is dishwasher safe which comes with a safe place to store the jug.
    • Drip stopper – Drip stopper avoids the unit to stop the drips when the storage jar is removed from the unit.
    • A hot plate – which helps to keep the coffee warm for 2 hrs after brewing only when the machine is on.
    • On/Off Button – On/Off button helps to on and off the unit, the unit turns off automatically after 2 hrs, even the unit is in on state.

  • Cleaning process
    • Once you get a new unit, first it’s recommended to clean the unit; here it’s recommended to clean the unit twice with water. The water you use should be the clean water, not the salted ones.
    • Pour the water in the water tank; you need to use minimum 3 cups of water and maximum 10 cups of water.
    • Place the storage jar in right position, otherwise the water would overflow. CLICK HERE to check how to place the storage jug.
    • Wait until the process is done it takes just few mins.
    • Discard the water and proceed for another time.

  • De-scaling process
    • De-scale the unit at least once in a month, de-scaling is not different from cleaning, but while de-scaling pour 1 cup of water along with 9 cups of water and continue the cleaning process.
