Adding Water and Coffee beans / powder:

1 – Open the top lid of the Smart Coffee Maker.

2 – Place a 10-12 cup paper basket-style filter or the included reusable filter into the removable filter basket.

Note: If using paper filters, it is important that the sides of the filter fit flush against the side of the filter basket. If filter collapse occurs, dampen the filter before placing in the filter basket. Add the desired amount of coffee and gently shake to level the coffee.

3 – Fill the water reservoir with cold, fresh water to the desired capacity. For easy and accurate filling, the water markings on the water reservoir show the amount of water needed to make the corresponding desired number of cups. The LCD panel and app also indicate the current water level. DO NOT fill past the “12 cup MAX line” or water will flow out of the Smart Coffee Maker.

4 – Add coffee beans / powder to your Coffee Maker

Note: The amount of coffee brewed will always be slightly less than the amount of water poured into the water reservoir. This is due to the absorption of water by the coffee grounds.

Using your Smart Coffee Maker without the Atomi Smart app

1 – Turn the Smart Coffee Maker on by pressing the POWER button once. If there’s enough water, the POWER button light will turn on to signal that the Smart Coffee Maker is ON and brewing.

Note: Brew can be stopped by pressing the POWER button a second time.

2 – After the used coffee grounds have cooled, carefully remove the filter basket and discard them.

Note: The brew basket drawer is hot after brewing. Always allow the Smart Coffee Maker to cool down before cleaning.

3 – Make sure the Glass Coffee Carafe is empty and in place before starting to brew coffee.

4 – Be sure to turn your Smart Coffee Maker off when no longer using it.

Cleaning and Maintaining your Smart Coffee Maker

Daily Cleaning – Always unplug the Smart Coffee Maker and allow it to cool before cleaning.

  • Remove and wash the filter basket, permanent filter, carafe and carafe lid in a solution of hot water and mild liquid soap.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool pads or other abrasive materials.
  • CAUTION: Never immerse the Smart Coffee Maker itself in water, in any other liquid or place the machine in the dishwasher.

1 – Fill the carafe with a solution of equal parts water and vinegar and let the solution stand in the carafe for approximately 20 minutes.

2.  Discard the solution, then wash and rinse the carafe. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners that may scratch the carafe.

The glass carafe is dishwasher safe 

Note: Leaving the carafe on the hot plate with a low amount of coffee for longer than 2 hours may cause the water to evaporate and make the coffee bitter/burnt. It’s recommended to turn off the machine once the carafe has less than 2 cups of coffee.

In order to successfully connect Atomi Smart devices, a 2.4GHz connection is required.

The 2.4GHz frequency waves travel further than the 5GHz. This means that if your device is in another room or far from your phone, you will have a better signal reception (compared to 5Ghz) which is essential for your smart device to function correctly and stay online.

All modern routers come with 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Depending on your router type, these bands may appear as separate WiFi networks (Example: Name-2.4GHz and Name-5GHz) or combined. If you only have one WiFi network, you should still be able to connect since the Atomi Smart app automatically finds the 2.4GHz frequency when connecting to your router.

However, if you experience any issues, please follow the points below:

– Make sure that you are connecting to a 2.4GHz network

– Keep your mobile device close to the router during connection

– If you have two SSID for your WiFi (Example: Name-2.4GHz / Name-5GHz), please temporarily disable “Auto-Join” on your Name-5GHz network)

– If you have two SSID for your WiFi, make sure that your 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi have different names

– If your router gives the option to disable the 5GHz network, please disable it temporarily

– Disable any VPN apps/services in order to connect successfully

– If you are having issues to connect, turn on Airplane Mode (Keep only WiFi activated when connecting your smart device)

– Make sure that you’ve entered the correct password for your 2.4GHz WiFi on the “Select 2.4GHz Wi-Fi Network” screen (Case sensitive, and make sure that there are no extra spaces)

– If you have too many devices connected to your 2.4GHz (more than 10), please turn off some of them temporarily and retry connecting your smart device to the app

– If you have a Mesh router, you may not be able to manually switch to a 2.4GHz frequency. Since this frequency travels further than the 5GHz, you can force your device to connect to it by moving your phone far from the router

– If you are still experiencing issues to connect, delete the app and reinstall it

– If the issue persists, restart your router
