Fill the carafe to the 10-cup mark, then pour the water into the coffee maker. Break the pasta to size, and place it in the carafe before turning on the coffee maker. Leave the pasta in the water for seven to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain it in a colander.
It is important to note that the Braun kf590 coffee maker comes equipped with an automatic shut-off feature. You should set this to at least 30 minutes to ensure that the pasta has enough time to cook. Cooked pasta should be soft and easily twirled around a fork, but slightly firm when you bite into it. It is important to set a timer and follow package instructions for your particular pasta, as cooking times vary.
If you use your coffee maker regularly to brew coffee, you may need to clean it prior to making the pasta to avoid a lingering coffee flavor. Clean the coffee maker with a mixture that is 1 part vinegar and 1 part water. Allow the coffee maker to complete half of a brew cycle, then let it sit for one hour before finishing the cycle. Drain the water-and-vinegar mixture, and run another cycle with water to remove any residual flavors.
