How do I start using my Clio Brewer?

Congrats on your new Clio.  Here's how to use it:

First Time Use: 

1- Plug the machine in and fill the water tank up to where it indicates MAX.

2- Lift the handle, insert the green cleaning pod, put the handle back down.  make sure there's a cup or mug in place.

3-All lights will be blinking including the red triangle.  Press any button.  The machine will run for 15-20 seconds then stop.

4- All lights except the red triangle will now be blinking together. wait 1 minute until all lights go steady and stop blinking. (heating mode)

5- Click on C, E or T buttons and let the first cleaning cycle finish.  It will take about a minute.

6-Lift the handle, the green cleaning pod will drop in the canister.  remove it from there and save it for future cleaning cycles.

Now your Clio brewer is ready to make coffee (read Regular Use)

Regular Use (stand by mode):

1. Whenever plugged in, lights are always blinking one at a time (standby mode).  This does not consume much energy at all. 

2. When ready to make a cup, lift the handle, drop a pod and push the handle down

3.  All 3 lights will start blinking together (heating mode) and after 1 minute they will go steady and the machine will be ready to brew.

4.  Once lights are steady, click C, E or T button to brew you favorite cup


What if my Brewer is not working?

You can refer to a quick start guide, try to open the Brewer handle to warm up the machine, check the user manual or send us a note and help@cliocoffee.com.

How is Clio system different from other single-cup coffee systems?

At clio, we believe we figured out how to deliver an amazing tasting, full-strength, rich full cup of coffee in about a minute in just one click.  And you don’t even have to go to the store – coffee pods can be auto-delivered to your doorstep.  Our coffee system is engineered with high-pressure brewing and double filtering technology which extracts the best flavor from handpicked, Italian-roasted beans.  Our pods are also made from 50% less material and from fully recyclable material compared to the leading single cup brand.

What pods can I use with the clio machine/brewer?

Clio brewers work exclusively with Clio pods. Here's why:  Clio makes such great coffee because of the combination of 1. The clio machine which uses high-pressure brewing to extract maximum flavor from the coffee beans, and 2. Our unique Clio pods which are engineered with double filters to extract maximum coffee flavor and each contain ~13 grams of top quality coffee roasted in the hills of Northern Italy to make a full-strength 10 oz cup of coffee (about twice the competition) or a double espresso which can be enjoyed as is or poured on ice for iced coffee or iced latte. 

What are Clio pod "Best by" dates?

“Best By” dates on Clio Pods are a way for us to encourage people to use their Clio pods as close as possible to their coffee harvesting and roasting date for absolute, maximum freshness.  

These dates are completely and 100% voluntary and optional.  Clio pods retain their freshness way past their “Best By” date (for a year or more), and there is no expiration date for coffee and absolutely no requirement to state a “Best By” date.  

While you may continue to see “Best by” dates on your Clio pod boxes, it is completely perfect to use them past those dates and the coffee will continue to be extremely fresh.   

To be honest, with the pandemic, it’s been a little more difficult for us to maintain the normal efficiency of our supply chain to ensure you always get pods within the absolute “Best By”  dates, but be assured that your Cliio pods will always be as fresh or more fresh than other coffees on the market, which do not have "Best by" dates.

We unequivocally assure you that any clio pods you receive are absolutely fresh for consumption.

How does Clio offer premium coffee experience but without the expensive price?

Because we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy an amazing and full cup of – that coffee luxury should be made simple and attainable. Everyone deserves to enjoy a great cup of coffee without the hassle of having to figure out which coffee to buy, how much to use, then having to figure out how to make a great cup of coffee, let alone the expense that goes with enjoying premium coffee. If you are tired of choosing convenience over taste or taste over convenience, Clio is right for you


What is the Clio system?

The Clio system is a Clio Brewer+ Clio pods + auto-delivery option (you can also get clio and pay as you go). The pods are engineered and make in Italy and designed in a way to work with the Clio Brewer to extract the most flavor of each blend to make a perfect cup of coffee for you.


Do I need to buy both a Clio Brewer and the Clio pods to enjoy Clio coffee?

Yes, the Clio Brewer uses clio pods exclusively to brew a perfect cup of coffee for you to enjoy at home or on the go. With the Clio Brewer you can use your home coffee cup or your travel mug – it fits a wide variety of sizes.
