Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your local waste
collection centre or scrap merchant
about potential recycling schemes.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
See the appropriate section in the
Warning and safety instructions.
Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure that they are
recycled.
5
Warning and safety instructions
Technical safety
This appliance complies with all relevant local and national safety requirements. Improper use of the appliance can, however, present a risk
of both personal injury and material
damage.
Before installation and before using
for the first time, read the operating
instructions carefully. They contain
important notes on installation,
safety, operation and care of the appliance. This way you will avoid the
risk of accidents and damage to the
appliance.
This appliance is not a toy! To avoid
the risk of injury, do not allow children to play on or near it, or to play
with the controls. Supervise its use
by the elderly and infirm.
Keep these operating instructions in
a safe place and pass them on to
any future user.
Correct usage
The appliance is intended for domestic use only for the preparation
of espresso, cappuccino, coffee and
hot water for tea and similar drinks. Any
other usage is not supported by the
manufacturer and could be dangerous.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage caused by incorrect or improper use of the appliance.
6
To avoid the risk of damage to the
appliance, make sure that the rating on the data plate corresponds to
the voltage and frequency of the household supply, before connecting the appliance to the mains supply. If in any
doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the appliance and an effective earthing system which complies with local and national safety regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety requirement is present and regularly tested
and where there is any doubt the
household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
The appliance must be built in before operation to ensure that no
electrical components are accessible.
Ensure power is not supplied to the appliance while installation, repair work or
maintenance work is being carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
When installed in the mobile unit
(optional extra) the appliance is not
suitable for use in the open air.
Warning and safety instructions
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk assessment of the installation being carried
out by a suitably qualified engineer.
If the coffee machine is to be built
in above another appliance, there
must be a full-width, closed shelf between the appliances (except when it is
combined with a Miele built-in plate
warming drawer).
Installation work and repairs may
only be carried out by suitably
qualified and competent persons in accordance with local and national safety
regulations. Repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be dangerous and the manufacturer will not be
held liable.
Use
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
– the mains fuse is withdrawn
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable)
– or it is switched off at the wall socket
and the the plug is removed. (Pull on
the plug, not the cable).
Never open the housing of the appliance. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to
the user and can cause operational
faults or electric shock.
Warning. Danger of scalding. The
liquids dispensed are very hot.
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury do not allow
children to play with the controls or operate it. Their skin is very sensitive and
reacts to hot temperatures. Danger of
scalding.
Remember that espresso is not a children's drink.
Do not reach into the brew unit
when the appliance is connected
to the electricity supply. Danger of
injury.
The water piping must be rinsed
through and the machine cleaned
thoroughly before the first drink is
prepared.
Only cold, fresh drinking water
should be used to fill the water
container. Warm or hot water or other
liquids could damage the appliance.
Change the water every day to prevent
a build up of bacteria.
Never put anything other than
Nespresso coffee capsules in the
capsule magazine. This will damage
the appliance.
7
Warning and safety instructions
The coffee capsules must be intact
before use. Do not use coffee capsules which are damaged, broken or
dented. These could become jammed
in the appliance and damage it.
Only use the descaling tablets supplied by Miele and follow the instructions on the packet carefully. Use
the exact proportions recommended to
avoid damage to the appliance.
Never place a drink with ignited alcohol under the spout of the coffee
machine. The flames could ignite plastic components and cause fire damage.
How quickly the capsule plate becomes soiled will depend on the fat
content of the coffee used. We recommend that you clean the capsule plate
every 2 to 4 months with a cleaning
tablet.
The hot water and steam could
cause scalding. These functions
must therefore be used particularly
carefully. Make sure you do not come
into contact with hot steam or hot water.
The appliance must never be used to
clean objects.
Do not use steam cleaning apparatus to clean the appliance. Pressurised steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Clean the appliance every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria.
The appliance should be descaled
regularly, depending on the hardness of the water, with the descaling
tablets supplied. The harder the water,
the more often the machine must be
descaled. The manufacturer cannot be
held liable for damage arising from insufficient descaling.
8
Never hang anything on the front
when it is open as this could damage the appliance.
Disposal of your old appliance
Before discarding an old appliance, switch off and disconnect it
from the power supply. Cut off the cable
directly behing the appliance and cut
off any plug and render it useless to
prevent misuse.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable for damage caused by non-compliance with these Warning and
safety instructions.
Brief description
The capsule magazine can hold up to
20 coffee capsules. These 20 coffee
capsules are divided between 5 chambers. This means that the capsule magazine can be filled with 5 different
types of coffee. These 5 different types
are programmed into the machine so
that the type required can be selected
from the display.
If the appliance is used by various people with different tastes and preferences, you can programme in specific
settings for up to four individual
users.
There is no need to remove each individual spent capsule as the used coffee capsules drop down automatically
into a waste container.
The coffee capsules can be disposed
of with your normal household waste.
The size of cup can be programmed in
so that the correct amount is dispensed. If the cup being used has a
smaller capacity than the programmed
cup size, preparation can be halted at
any time by pressing the right control
dial.
The hot water can be used for making
tea and also for pre-warming cups.
There is also a system lock to prevent
children from operating the appliance.
The easy to use programming facility
allows, amongst other things, the language in the display to be altered, the
water hardness to be programmed in
and the switching on and off time of the
appliance to be specified.
To ensure that the flavour can develop
fully and be maintained for longer the
appliance has an additional function to
automatically rinse and prewarm the
system. The same function is used to
flush coffee remains out of the system
and the spout after use.
The appliance can be programmed to
switch to standby mode so it is always
ready for operation but does not consume unnecessary electricity. This can
be programmed to happen between 20
minutes and 6 hours after coffee was
last dispensed. It is therefore important
to set the correct time of day.
If a double portion of coffee or
espresso is required, a double portion
can be selected. The machine will
then prepare two portions one after the
other.

Automatic Rinsing
To remove any coffee grounds from the system, the water piping must be rinsed through before the first drink of coffee is
prepared. If programme option "Automatic rinsing" is set to
"On", rinsing will start automatically when the appliance is
cold and is switched on. This will pre-heat the system because hot water is used for the rinse process. A message will
appear in the display. The appliance will also run an automatic rinse before it switches off, if it has been used to prepare a
drink.
To prevent water from running into the drip tray always place an empty cup under the spouts before
making the first cup of coffee.

Setting the water hardness
For trouble-free operation of the coffee machine, and to ensure that the descaling reminder appears in the right display
at the appropriate time, it is important to programme in the
water hardness. The water hardness indicates how much calcium is dissolved in the water. The higher the calcium content, the harder the water is. And the harder the water, the
more often the machine will need to be descaled.
The appliance measures the amount of water which has been
taken in (including the amount required for producing steam).
The amount of water which the machine can process before it
becomes blocked and needs to be descaled will depend on
the water hardness level set. Less water will be processed
with a high water hardness level than with a low water hardness level.
The local water authority will be able to tell you the hardness

^ Dip the strip in your drinking water for approximately a second, then shake off any excess water.

If the water is harder than 7.0 mmol/l or 700 mg/l (40 °d),
limescale will build up more rapidy than with soft water.
Descaling will need to be carried out more regularly than
stated to prevent limescale damage to the appliance.
Use programming option "Water hardness" to programme in

Filling the machine with water and coffee capsules
Please clean the machine thoroughly before filling the water container and the capsule magazine (see "Cleaning
and care").
Filling the water tank
The quality of the water plays an important part in
the overall quality of the coffee. The water container should therefore be emptied and freshly
filled every day.
Hot water and other liquids could damage the machine.
Use cold, clean drinking water and fill the machine every
day.
^ Open the appliance door.
^ Lift the water container up and pull it forwards to remove.
34
Filling the machine with water and coffee capsules
^ Fill the container with cold, clean drinking water up to the
"Max." marking.
A valve in the base of the container will ensure that no water can escape.
^ Push the water container fully back into the appliance.
Filling the capsule magazine
Never put anything other than Nespresso coffee capsules
in the capsule magazine.
Do not use coffee capsules which are damaged, broken or
dented. They can become stuck in the appliance.
The capsule magazine has five chambers, each
of which holds four capsules. It is important to allocate the chambers correctly (see "Allocating
type"). You can of course fill all the chambers with the same
type of coffee, if wished.
Some of the chambers are allocated with a type of
coffee at the factory. Fill the chambers with the appropriate type of coffee or save another type of
coffee (see "Saving different coffee types"). The machine will
then dispense the type of coffee you select!
^ Pull the magazine runners a out as far as possible.
35
Filling the machine with water and coffee capsules
^ Now fill the chambers c of the capsule magazine b with
capsules. Make sure you put them in correctly with the aluminium foil facing downwards. You can take the capsule
magazine out by lifting it upwards to fill it.
Please note that the individual capsules sit loosely in the
capsule magazine to prevent them from becoming
jammed.
^ If you have removed the magazine capsule, place it onto
the magazine runners before putting it back into the
appliance.
^ Now push the magazine runners fully back into the
appliance.
^ Close the door.
The appliance will now align the capsule magazine. You will
be able to hear this happening.

Milk can also be frothed in a cup or jug.
^ Turn the froth spout to the relevant symbol for the way you
want to create the froth. (Cup 1, Jug 2).
Froth is best made from cold full-cream milk.
If you make the froth for Cappuccino directly in the cup
you can add the coffee at the same time or afterwards.
Making it at the same time will , however, leave the Cappuccino looking a bit brown. It is also harder to get the ratio of coffee to milk right.
^ Fill the milk frother a up to the top mark with cold milk, fit
the lid, and place it in position on the drip tray.
^ Place a cup under the coffee spouts b.

45
Setting the portion sizes
The flavour of the coffee produced depends on the type of
coffee, how finely the beans are ground and the quantity of
water used. Espresso, coffee and tea cups vary in size. To
ensure the machine uses exactly the amount of water to suit
your taste and your cups, you can programme in the amount
to use.
The coffee portion buttons are designed for the following
types of coffee:
The Espressobutton dispenses a standard size espresso to
be served in a standard espresso cup. The amount of water
for Espresso can be set between 30 and 75 ml.
The medium Coffee button dispenses coffee for a standard
size coffee cup. It uses the same quantity of coffee as an
espresso, but adds more water. The amount of water for
Espresso can be set between 30 and 175 ml.
With double Espresso and double coffee two portions of
Espressor or coffee are dispensed one after the other. This requires two capsules and twice the amount of water as for a
single portion.
If the appliance is regularly used by different people, each user (up to 4 in addition to the standard
profile) can set up their own profile for the amount
of water to use.

Cleaning and care
Always allow the machine to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of scalding.
Do not clean the appliance with a steam cleaner to avoid
the risk of damage to the machine.
Never use cleaners containing chlorides, sand, soda or
scouring agents. These would damage the surface.
It is important to clean the machine regularly, as coffee remains will soon go mouldy.
With the exception of the plastic grille and the capsule plate,
all removable parts can be cleaned in a dishwasher. If the
parts are cleaned frequently in a dishwasher, they can become discoloured by coming into regular contact with food
residues (e.g. tomatoes) in the dishwasher.
Rinses
If you have set the automatic rinsing function to off because
you do not want the machine to rinse the piping and brewing
system automatically, you will need to rinse the system
through manually. This will need to be done before the first
drink and also after the last drink is prepared. Place a suitable container under the spout and the steam valve.

Drip tray
There is a sensor in the drip tray which causes a message to
appear in the display when the drip tray is full and needs to
be emptied. Remove the tray and empty and clean it when
this message appears.
However, to avoid a build-up of odours, the drip tray should
be cleaned every day.
^ Open the machine door.
51
Cleaning and care
^ Remove the drip tray from the machine with care.
There is a grid in the drip tray. This grid prevents the water
from spilling out of the drip tray when it is being carried.
^ Clean the drip tray and the grid with hot, mild soapy water
or in the dishwasher and dry with a cloth.
Make sure in particular that the metal discs (contact
points) at the top of the drip tray are cleaned and dried
properly. These metal discs indicate to the machine when
the drip tray is full or when it is not in the machine. The
discs will not work if they are dirty.
^ Push the drip tray with the grid along the right edge back
into the machine.
^ Close the door.
52
Cleaning and care

water and washing up liquid and dry it.
^ Push the cover back onto the coffee outlet. Make sure that
the cover sits correctly on the outlet.
Interior
^ First take out all removable parts and then clean the interior
with a mild solution of hot water and washing up liquid.
Capsule plate
How quickly the capsule plate becomes soiled will depend
on the fat content of the coffee used. It should be cleaned
when necessary using the cleaning tablets supplied with the
machine. They are available from your Miele Dealer or from
the Miele Spare Parts Department.
55
Cleaning and care
^ Press on the grooved position a, and pull the capsule

into position.
Steam valve
The small rubber sleeve which connects the steam valve with
the milk frother can be removed for cleaning. The sleeve and
also the tip of the steam valve underneath the sleeve should
be cleaned regularly.
^ Push the steam valve down and pull the rubber sleeve off
downwards.
^ Use a mild solution of hot water and washing up liquid to
clean the rubber sleeve and the tip of the steam valve.
56
Cleaning and care
^ Dry them and then put the sleeve back onto the tip of the
steam valve. Make sure that the sleeve sits securely onto
the tip.
^ Push the steam valve back upwards.
Milk frother (Cappuccinatore)
The milk frother can be dismantled into several pieces to
clean it properly. It is most important to clean the pieces
properly as otherwise the flow of steam will be disrupted or
blocked. All parts are dishwasher safe.
^ Dismantle all the pieces and clean them.
^ Reassemble the lid as shown in the illustrations.
57
Cleaning and care
Make sure that the milk outlet and the valve are in the correct positions. The valve when assembled is part of the
milk frother handle. If this is not the case, the frother will
not operate properly.
Machine front
^ Clean the front of the machine with a solution of hot water
and washing up liquid applied with a damp cloth. Wipe everything dry with a soft cloth.
Make sure that no water penetrates behind the displays or
the controls.
Avoid on all types of front:
– cleaning agents containing soda, acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners.
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers or sponges which
have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents.
To prevent the risk of scratches and damage to the surface structure of stainless steel and aluminium fronted machines pay particular attention to the following cleaning
instructions.
Stainless steel fronts
The machine front and controls are susceptible to scratches
and abrasions.
Please note the different cleaning instructions for
- stainless steel surfaces and
- stainless steel coloured controls
58
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel surfaces
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned using a proprietary
non-abrasive cleaning agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel, or with the Miele E-Cloth.
When descaling the machine wipe up any spillages of
descaling agent immediately!
To help prevent re-soiling, a proprietary conditioning agent for stainless steel can also be used. Apply sparingly with an even pressure in the direction of the grain.
Stainless steel coloured controls
The controls may suffer discolouration or damage if soiling
is left on them for too long. Remove any soiling straight
away.
When descaling the machine wipe up any spillages of
descaling agent immediately!
Aluminium fronts
Aluminium is affected by the way that light falls on it, by the
surrounding environment and by the angle you observe it
from.
Aluminium surfaces and controls may suffer discolouration
or damage if soiling is left on them for too long. Remove
any soiling straight away.
Warning: The surfaces and controls are susceptible to
scratches and abrasion.
Avoid:
– stainless steel cleaners,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– diswasher detergent.
When descaling the machine wipe up any spillages of
descaling agent immediately!

Descaling the appliance
The appliance should be descaled regularly to ensure that it
functions correctly. The appliance will remind you when this
needs to be carried out.
When you are at the stage where only 50 portions can be
made before the next descaling programme has to be run the
following message will appear in the display: "50 no. of uses
until descaling has to be done"
This message will now appear after each drink has been
made (coffee, espresso, steam, hot water). When 0 is
reached the appliance locks out and "Descale" appears in the
display.
You cannot make any more drinks until the descaling
programme has been carried out.
For descaling you should only use the descaling tablets
supplied. These have been specially formulated for use in
this coffee machine. They are available from your Miele
dealer or the Miele Spare Parts Department:
Other types of descaling agents will damage the appliance and affect the taste.
Follow the instructions on the package carefully, to avoid
damaging the appliance.
Let the appliance cool down before running the descaling
programme.
Make sure that you wipe up any spillages or spashes of
descaling agent immediately to avoid damage to the appliance front.

Descaling the appliance
The right hand display will guide you through this procedure. Follow the instructions given,
e. g. to empty the drip tray, fill the water container etc.
The descaling programme cannot be stopped once the
right hand control dial has been pressed. The programme
has to be completed through to the end. This is a safety
measure, to ensure that the machine is fully descaled and
to prevent the descaling programme being shortened.
This is important to protect the appliance and ensure it
functions correctly.
^ When a message appears in the right hand display asking
you
– to fill the water container with descaling agent, take the
water container out and fill it to the k mark with water
(warm water, max. 50 °C. Do not use less than this amount
as the descaling programme will otherwise finish too soon
and not be properly carried out.

and pull the capsule plate all the way out.
Put the coloured descaling funnel in its place.
63
Descaling the appliance
The descaling procedure will not start for another 5 minutes or so. This time is needed in order to let the descaling
tablets dissolve fully in the water. It will take longer than
this to start if the appliance is too warm.
During descaling a little water and descaling agent will run
out of the coffee and steam spouts. This is followed by an activation period, before more descaling agent is drained out,
and so on. A message will appear in the right hand display
letting you know approximately how long this procedure will
take.
^ When a message asking you to fill the water container
with fresh water appears in the right hand display, you
should remove the container and rinse it out thoroughly with
clean water. Make sure all traces of descaling agent are removed, and then fill it with clean drinking water.
Empty the waste container at the same time.
Water will flow out of both spouts during the rinsing process.
The drip tray will need to be emptied several times during this
process.
When descaling is finished Programme finished, open the
door will appear in the display. Open the appliance front and
follow the instructions given in the right hand display. It is
then ready for use again.

Glossary
Caffè is the Italian term for a standard
espresso. Its full name is caffè
espresso. It can be taken after a meal
and throughout the day.
Cappuccino chiaro is a "light" cappuccino with less espresso and more hot
milk.
Caffè americano is a thin espresso
with lots of water.
Cappuccino scuro is a "dark"
cappucino with more espresso and less
milk.
Caffè corretto is espresso with a dash
of something stronger such as Grappa,
brandy or a liqueur.
Cappuccino senza schiuma is
cappucino with hot milk but without the
froth.
Caffè freddo is otherwise known as
iced coffee. An extended version of
espresso, it is served in summer with
ice cubes and liquid sugar.
Crema is the sign of the perfect cup of
espresso Crema is the sign of the
perfect cup of espresso - a fine, nut or
cinnamon brown froth on the surface of
the espresso, which is only created
when the pressure is sufficiently high.
The Crema contains the frothed oils
which are rich in flavour and aroma
and, quite simply, it helps to keep the
espresso warm.
Caffè latte is a double espresso in a
large cup filled with hot milk, topped
with little or no foam, for people who enjoy milk.
Caffè moca consists of one third
espresso, one third hot milk and one
third cocoa. Often served in a tall glass.
Caffè ristretto is the strongest, most
concentrated espresso. The water is reduced to 30 ml per portion.
Cappuccino is espresso with frothed
milk. It is served in a ceramic cup with
one third espresso, one third hot milk
and one third froth. To obtain a good
froth, the milk should be well cooled
and foamed in a cold container.
Pressure is important as it releases the
suspended particles in the coffee which
give it its aroma. If the pressure is too
low, the aroma cannot develop fully. If it
is too high, it releases tannin and a bitter flavour. Pressure is also important
for creating the Crema.
Espresso, see Caffè
81
Glossary
Espresso corto is a "short", strong
espresso.
Espresso doppio is quite simply a
double portion of normal espresso.
Espresso lungo is the longer, less concentrated version served in a standard
coffee cup.
Espresso ristretto is a double
strength, bitter tasting espresso.
Coffee should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container to maintain
its flavour for longer.
The caffeine content of espresso is
only a third or a half the caffeine normally found in coffee. The stronger the
roast, the less caffeine the espresso will
contain.
Macchiato is espresso with a tiny shot
of hot, frothed milk which gives it a dappled (macchiato) appearance.
Blending is unique to each coffee producer. The blend gives coffee it particular taste and quality and will vary depending the type of coffee you want.
82
Roasting is very important for the flavour and caffeine content of the
espresso. Roasting releases the ethereal oils which create the aroma and flavour. Roasting releases the flavour but
burns off the caffeine. The stronger the
roast, the less caffeine the espresso will
contain. Lightly roasted beans have an
acid flavour, dark roasted beans taste
more bitter.
Pre-warming the cups is to be recommended to prevent the espresso from
cooling too quickly.
Water hardness can affect the flavour
of the espresso.
