I'm here to save the day! The GE filters fit perfectly in the Farberware Coffee Maker and are sold in a 2-pk at WalMart for a reasonable amount. You can also find them online (a bit over-priced), but be very careful as they come in a blister-pack and may arrive crushed, covered with a black dust. This is charcoal, in which case - DO NOT USE !! Certainly hope this makes your morning coffee break more pleasant. :)

You are most likely out of luck on this issue. I wouldn't spend time looking anymore. You don't need them if you have decent water. If not, buy purified water at the grocery store.

You can brew as little water as you put into it, it's got markings in the reservoir area that indicate how many cups of water you have in there (except their cups are apparently 5 oz instead of 8)

It holds 17 ounces of water (one standard bottle of spring water or filtered water), and for me (a big guy) that's ONE CUP. For most ladies it's about TWO CUPS. For very old English ladies drinking from those tiny, delicate china cups, it's FOUR or FIVE CUPS.

The "cups" are only four ounces in reality. I used it to make a large regular cup of coffee and it has to be filled. Two smaller cups if the mug is regular size.

Question

Did anyone have trouble with the lid staying closed?

Just purchased this coffee maker and upon setting it up, noticed that when the carafe is in place the lid pops up. It doesn't latch. take out the pot it drops down. Taking it back and checking another just in case I got a fluke, but just wondered if anyone else had the issue. The lid just lies down level but doesn't latch which would be fine but it sticks up about 1/4 inch with the pot in.
thanks.

First one I bought the plastic latch was broken upon opening it up. Returned it and got one with the latch not broken upon using it the lid pops up when you put the coffee pot in you put the lid down some times it stays down then pops up the lid. The spring release valve that lets the water go into the pot pushes the filter up to open the lid. Called mfg. They said never heard of this problem maybe they should look at this webpage. They said to return it back to the store bad design.

Sort of. That happened a couple times before I noticed that you have to have the filter in precisely the right position or the lid doesn't close. Make sure the tab on the filter is aligned with the matching notch.

Question

Can someone recommend how they make their coffee?

I just bought this coffee maker, and I LOVE it! But, I'm having a hard time making a good cup of coffee. I know it's not the maker itself, because I've always struggled with making a good cup of coffee. I really like the Dunkin Donuts brand of coffee, but any suggestions at all would be great! THANK YOU!

I tried ALL the Folgers coffees (hate Dunkin Donuts and won't spend the money on fancy coffees), and the winner BY FAR is their "Colombian." Don't pay more than $7 for the LARGE canister. I brew one big, 16-ounce mug at a time (just put in two level scoops of grounds and pour in one standard bottle of purified or spring water). I pour out the last ounce of water in the pot because it has grounds in it. Good coffee!

For even better coffee, go to Burger King ... they use Seattle's Best #3 beans and will brew a cup fresh for you (59 cents for us seniors!) ... this is good stuff! Seattle's Best (owned by Starbucks) is what you get when you order just a simple coffee at Starbucks, but it always tastes BURNT there ... I think their machines brew too hot. Anyway, I bought a small bag of SB #3 beans, ground them at home, and brewed them in this machine ... and, guess what? Not nearly as good as at Burger King! So I'm sticking with Folger's Colombian at home, and my 2nd cup of the day is at Burger King.

Hi!

To me, there is nothing worse than weak coffee (I jokingly tell people that would rather drink hot water - ha!)

I am NOT a big fan of DD coffee, but that said, If use the scoop that came with the coffeemaker, 1 suggest 1 rounded scoop per number of cups to be brewed - if you are only brewing 2 cups or less, I suggest making those heaping scoops. (if the coffee is too strong, you can always add a little water.)

You might like Maxwell House FRENCH ROAST, as I think it is great coffee for the money! Good luck!

Buy a coffee scoop, sold at most stores, and use one scoop per two cups of water. I usually make 8 cups in the morning, and with 4 (full) scoops of coffee grounds, this always makes wonderful coffee.

There is one but it's on the inside of the well and cannot be seen without opening the lid. If you're looking for a coffee maker with the clear glass/plastic indicator on the outside, this does not have one of them.

Not on the outside ... I am thinking you are looking for a clear window-type fill indicator. On the inside of the water well, there are white step-like indicators with numbers on them. I agree, these are harder to read, but the carafe has cup lines on it, so no biggie really.

I have owned several of the GE makers similar to this one. Since Walmart changed from GE to Farberware they have quit selling the filters. I have looked on line with no luck. I guess when the filter stops working, take it back and exchange it for a new coffee maker. The instructions recommend changing the water filter every 30 days.
