How does brew strenght selector work? Which direction should it be turned for the strongest coffee?
Hi. This feature allows you to control the strength/flavor of the
coffee. To select from mild to strong flavor, rotate the Brew
Strength Selector Knob, located on top of the coffeemaker,
to desired strength. The strength is indicated on the maker. Thanks!

The brew strength knob is not very clear. Does the black cup represent the strongest coffee or does the larger white cup? I don't see it anywhere in the instructions.
Hello, the black cup refers to the stronger cup of coffee. Thank you!

do not understand brew strength diagram on top of coffee maker - which is stronger and which is weaker?
Hello, To select from mild to strong flavor, rotate the Brew Strength Selector Knob, located on top of the coffeemaker, to desired strength. The cup that is fully shaded will result in the strongest coffee. Thank you!

Your brew strength selector is terrible. It is completely unclear whether the white cup or the black cup represent the stronger coffee and it is nowhere in your instructions. And judging by your completely contradictory responses on this page you don't know either. In one answer you say it is the black cup and in another answer you say it is the "fully shaded" cup which would be the white cup. Which is it?
Hello, we have verified with the manufacturer the correct way to choose brew strength for this product. When selecting brew strength, the bigger and darker circle on the left bottom sets unit to brew at a more bold/stronger brew strength. Whereas, the lighter cup and smaller circles on the top, when turning toward the right, sets the unit to brew at a lighter strength. Thank you!
