Coffee in a 100 cup coffee maker - Advice?

Dave MP | Jul 11, 200801:51 PM     6

I am planning for a party this weekend, and I'm renting a 100 cup coffee maker for the first time. I am assuming it will come with some instructions, but I thought I'd ask some advice here too.

How much coffee should I use?

Is it worth investing in some nicer beans (I live in SF, CA, so there are lots of great beans I can buy - but if the taste will be about the same, going cheaper would be good too). Also, how should I have the coffee ground?

How long does it take to brew all the coffee?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.....or even a link to a site that gives some good instructions.

Thanks very much,

Dave MP
