From single-serve to a full pot of coffee – maximize your brewing flexibility.
No two coffee drinkers are the same – so when you make coffee at home, the flexibility to customize how and what you brew is key. From fresh grounds to K-Cups ®*, the Hamilton Beach® FlexBrew® 2-Way Coffee Maker gives you the options to please fans of all types of coffees and quantities. Brew a full pot using your favorite grounds on the carafe side, or make a cup for yourself using a K-cup or grounds on the single-serve side.
Each side has an easy-fill water reservoir with separate windows, so there’s never any confusion or over-filling. You can also choose between regular or bold brew strength on both sides. The full-pot side brews up to 12 cups of coffee using grounds. It includes a programmable clock with 2-hour keep warm cycle and automatic shutoff, automatic pause and serve. The single-serve side can brew up to 10 oz. with a K-cup pack, or 14 oz. travel mug with grounds. A removable cup rest doubles as a storage container for single-serve packs or to hold the brew basket.

For each cup of coffee being made, place one level tablespoon of grounds into the filter. Put the brew basket back into the brew basket holder, then fill the carafe with up to 12 cups of cold water and pour into the carafe water reservoir. Place the carafe, with the carafe lid attached, on the warming plate. Press the BREW STRENGTH button to change the strength to BOLD. Press the BREW NOW button to start brewing.

Test Kitchen Tip: To serve coffee while still brewing on the carafe side, remove the carafe and pour a cup. By removing the carafe, the flow of coffee will stop until the carafe is replaced. Be sure to replace the carafe within 20 seconds of being removed to prevent overflow.
TEST KITCHEN TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST-TASTING COFFEE
All coffees are made from either arabica beans or robusta beans, or some combination of both. Arabica beans are slightly more expensive but tend to produce a better-tasting coffee.Ground coffee will become stale much faster than whole beans. If buying pre-ground coffee, choose a package with the latest expiration date or a smaller quantity. Learn more about how to keep your coffee fresh and store it properly. Use approximately 1 TBSP of grounds for each cup of coffee being made. To avoid overflow, use 3/4 TBSP when brewing decaf or flavored coffees. Make sure your coffee maker is clean!
