Introduction
Congratulations on the purchase of your new
Cuisinart® Espresso Maker! You’re only minutes
away from experiencing the rich, flavourful
espresso found in the world’s best cafés, right
in your own home. Please take a few moments
to discover the features of your new espresso
maker, including the double-shot option, and
be sure to enjoy every espresso, cappuccino
and latte to come!
Better Coffee, Better Crema!
As the experts in coffee-making, Cuisinart uses
a double-wall filter to produce ultra high water
pressure. Higher pressure leaves some excess
water in the espresso grounds following
extraction, which helps to produce better
coffee, better crema!
The Quest for the Perfect Cup of ESPRESSO
It is generally agreed that there are four basic
elements critical to the perfect cup:
Element 1: Water
When brewing espresso, make sure the water
flows through the filter at the correct pace.
The water flow can be adjusted by varying
the pressure with which the coffee is tamped
(pressed down) in the filter or by altering the
grind of the coffee. If the speed of the water
flow is too slow, the coffee will be overextracted and will be very dark and bitter, with
a spotted and uneven crema (froth) on the top.
If the speed of the water flow is too fast, the
coffee will be under-extracted and the supreme
flavour will not develop. The coffee will be
diluted and there will be an inadequate amount
of crema on the top.
Element 2: Coffee
While the bulk of the liquid is water, all of the
flavour should be from the coffee. To achieve
the same great quality of coffee you receive at
a café, you need to use the same quality
beans. If you choose to grind your own beans,
buy the beans fresh and whole, only about a
two-week supply at a time for maximum
freshness. Once the coffee bean is broken, its
flavour degrades very quickly. If it is not
practical to buy smaller supplies, we
recommend you separate larger amounts of
beans and store them in airtight containers in a
cool, dry area. They should not be kept for
longer than 1 month as flavour will diminish.
Do not refrigerate or freeze coffee beans
Element 3: Grind
The grind of the coffee is critical for proper
flavour extraction. If using a pre-ground coffee,
be sure to purchase an espresso grind that is
specifically for espresso/cappuccino machines.
If the grind is too fine, over extraction and
bitterness will occur with a spotted and uneven
crema on the top. If the grind is too coarse, the
water will pass through too rapidly and
there will be an inadequate amount of
crema on the top of the espresso.
Element 4: Tamping the Coffee Grounds
If you choose to use ground espresso instead
of pods, tamping the coffee is a very important
part of the coffee making process. Use the
scoop supplied to fill the filter basket, then using
the tamping tool (flat end of the measuring
scoop), tamp (press down) down the grounds
with moderate pressure. Add more coffee and
tamp again if necessary to bring coffee to level.
Do not overfill the filter basket. The ground
coffee should be tamped with moderate
pressure. If the coffee is not tamped securely,

there is a chance that the water will flow through
the coffee too rapidly and the coffee will be
under-extracted. Note: If the coffee is tamped
too firmly, the water will flow through the
coffee too slowly and the coffee will be over-extracted.

machine will automatically switch to sleep
mode. An indication that the machine is in sleep
mode is that the power light will slowly flash.
After a further 1½ hours of non-use, the
espresso machine will turn off.
guide to milk texturing
Milk texturing is the steaming of milk. The steam
does two things; it heats the milk and mixes air
with the milk to form a foamy texture. As with
learning to make an espresso, perfecting the art
of milk texturing takes time and practice.
1. Determine how much milk is needed based
on the number of cups being made.
TIP: Keep in mind that the volume of milk will
increase during the texturing.
25
26
27
NOTE: When using the manual operation you
must press the button once to start the pour
and again to stop the pour. However, with the
single and
double espresso operations
you need only press these buttons once to start
the espresso pour and the program will automatically stop the pour at the pre programmed
level.
8. Check the espresso pour. The ideal pour is
dark and caramel with reddish reflections.
9. Serve espresso immediately.
Caring for your Espresso Maker
10. Remove the portafilter
handle from the brew head
(28).
11. Discard the used coffee
grinds or pod/pods from
the filter basket (29). Place
the portafilter holder into
slide lock position when
discarding grinds so
basket stays in place.
2. Pour cold refrigerated milk into the stainless
frothing pitcher, approximately ½ full.
3. Press the steam button which will flash, and
become solid when unit is ready for use.
4. Purge the steam wand of
any water. With the steam
wand positioned over the
drip tray, activate the steam
function by turning the
steam and hot water control
dial to the left (30). Once any
water has been purged stop
the steam by turning the
steam and hot water control
dial to the O position (31).
5. Swing the steam wand to
the side of the espresso
machine (32).
28

6. Place the steam wand into
the milk so that the nozzle is
about a half-inch (1.25 cm)
below the surface and
33
activate the steam function
by turning the steam
and hot water
control dial to the hot water setting (33).
em200c_ib_BIL.indd 8
3/9/07 5:40:03 PM
7. Angle the pitcher so that the
steam wand is resting on the
spout of the pitcher and
lower the pitcher until the tip
34
of the steam nozzle is just
below the surface of the
milk. This will start to create a whirlpool
action in the milk (34).
NOTE: Do not allow the steam to spurt unevenly
or it will create aerated froth/large bubbles. If
this is happening, raise the pitcher so that the
steam nozzle is lowered farther into the milk.
8. As the steam heats and textures the milk,
the level of the milk in the pitcher will begin
to rise. As this happens, follow the level of
the milk by lowering the pitcher, always
keeping the tip of the steam nozzle just
below the surface.
9. Once the foam is created,
raise the pitcher until the
steam nozzle is in the centre
of the milk (35).
35
TIP: The amount of foam
required will vary depending on the drinks being
made. For example, a cappuccino requires more
foam than a latte.
10. Stop the steam immediately
by turning the steam and
hot water control dial to the
centre position (36).
1. Place the cup or container
under the steam/hot water
nozzle and activate the hot
water function
by turning
the steam and hot water
control dial to the hot water
setting (38).
2. Once you have dispensed the
required amount of hot water
into the cup or container, stop
the hot water by turning the
steam/hot water control dial
to the O position (39).
3. Remove the cup or container
and swing the steam/hot
water wand over the drip tray to catch any
drips of water (40).

Cleaning and
Maintenance
Always turn the espresso maker off and remove
the plug from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
Never immerse unit in water or other liquid. To
clean, simply wipe with a clean damp cloth and
dry before storing.
CLEANING THE FILTERS, PORTAFILTER
HOLDER AND BREW HEAD
36
IMPORTANT: Do not boil the milk.
11. Remove the pitcher,
immediately wipe the steam
nozzle and wand with a
clean damp cloth (37) and
purge a small amount of
steam.
using the hot water function
37
• The stainless steel filters and portafilter
holder should be rinsed under water
immediately after use to remove all coffee
particles. You may also use a cleaning pin to
clear the opening.
• Periodically run water through the machine
with the portafilter holder in place, but
without any ground coffee, to rinse out
any lingering coffee particles.
• The inside of the brew head should be wiped
with a damp cloth to remove any coffee
particles.
CLEANING THE OUTER HOUSING/CUP
WARMING PLATE
• The outer housing and cup warming plate
can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth.
Do not use any scouring agents or harsh
cleaners.
em200c_ib_BIL.indd 9
3/9/07 5:40:06 PM
CLEANING THE GRATE ON THE DRIP TRAY
• The grate should be removed,
emptied and cleaned
frequently, particularly when
the drip tray is full.
• The grate can be washed in
warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly.
Use a non-abrasive washing liquid (do not
use abrasive cleaners, pads or cloths which
can scratch the surface).
CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY
• The drip tray can be removed
after the grate is removed and
then cleaned with a soft,
damp cloth (do not use any
scouring agents or harsh
cleaners).
NOTE: Do not clean any of the parts or
accessories in the dishwasher.
CLEANING THE STEAM WAND
• The steam wand should always be cleaned
after steaming milk.
• Wipe the steam wand with a
damp cloth, then with the
steam wand directed back
into the drip tray, momentarily
set the steam and hot water
control dial to the hot water
setting. This will release any
remaining milk from inside the
steam wand.
DECALCIFICATION
Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits that form over time on the metal parts
of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your espresso
maker, decalcify the unit from time to time.
The frequency depends on the hardness of
your tap water and how often you use the
coffeemaker. To clean, fill the water reservoir to
capacity with a mixture of ¹∕³ white vinegar and
²∕³ water. Be sure the power button is in the off
position, and the unit is unplugged. Remove
the portafilter holder. Plug the machine back in,
and power the unit back on. Place a large
container under the brew head and steam
wand. When brewing temperature is reached,
the manual, one cup, and two cup buttons will
stop flashing. Press the manual button and
when your cup is filled with water; press the
manual button again, and let half of the
solution run through the brew head. Press the
steam button, and turn the steam/hot water
control dial to the left when the steam button
stops flashing, allow the remaining solution to
run through the steam wand. When the solution
stops running, turn the steam/hot water control
dial to the center position to stop. After
decalcifying, run one cycle of fresh cold water
through the unit before using the unit again to
brew coffee.
• Make sure the steam and hot
water control dial is in the O
position. Press the power
button off, unplug the power
cord and allow the machine
to cool.
• If the steam wand remains
blocked, use pin to clear the
opening.
