The Fountain is the first part of the Coffee Mixer and is where you pour the coffee in. It is made of 10 coffee cups. First take four of those coffee cups and poke a hole with the scissors as close to the bottom so coffee can flow out easily. then build the base by taking a piece of cardboard big enough for four coffee cups. take one of the cups with the hole in it and three without holes. put them together in a square as in the picture with the hole pointing out over the side. then build up by taking another cup with a hole and two without holes and place them on top of the other three cups without the holes. make sure the second hole will dump into the bottom cup with the hole. tape them all together to hold them in place. then continue adding the third and fourth layer to match the pictures making sure each hole will pour into the next cup with the hole. a good thing to do is test it by running water through it and seeing how it works. this is now the completed fountain piece. put it to the side and it will be attached later to the main structure. this structure mixes in sugar. pour a small amount of sugar into any of the cups. as the liquid pours through the sugar dissolves and gets mixed in.
