There are 6 components to making a great cup of hot coffee. Get all these right and you’ll
have the perfect coffee, whether it’s a straight shot of espresso or a ‘combo’ like a latté
or cappuccino.

THE RIGHT CHOICE OF COFFEE BEANS
There are two main types of bean; within each type there are numerous varieties that are
usually identified by their geographical region.
TEA GUIDE
ARABICA
CAFFEINE
Arabica usually carry a lower
caffeine content
TYPICAL FLAVOUR Clean, bright acidity and high
CHARACTERISTICS sweetness. Floral and citrus
character
For a tea cup (150-180ml) we recommend using 1 capsule (depending on your strength
and taste preference). For a mug (250ml) use 2 capsules.
24
ROBUSTA
Robusta usually carry a higher
caffeine content
Full bodied, pronounced
bitterness and low acidity.
Earthy and woody character
The roast will affect the strength and flavour of the coffee. Generally the darker the roast the
stonger the coffee will be.
Try beans from around the world. As with wine, the soil, climate and cultivation methods all
affect the taste of the coffee, producing anything from a mild, mellow blend to a rich, dark
roast.
Whole beans will keep for fourteen days in an air-tight container or 45 days in the freezer.
Divide a big bag of beans into several smaller containers before freezing so you only open
what you require.

THE GRIND
Espresso machines need coffee with a fine grind as a coarser grind will affect the rate of
extraction. You’ll know when you’ve got it right because you’ll have a dense 2-3mm crema on
the surface of your coffee.
Too coarse: This will under-extract, giving you brown water but no flavour.
Too fine: This will over-extract, giving you a bitter flavour.
3
WATER
The perfect temperature for brewing coffee is just below boiling point. Boiling water will burn
the ground beans and the coffee will taste bitter. A lower temperature won’t extract the oils
or flavour from the bean.
Your Dualit coffee machine will heat the water to the perfect temperture every time you make
an espresso.
4
DOSING AND TAMPING
Your Dualit coffee machine comes with a 7g measuring spoon/tamper.
Compacting the coffee firmly and uniformly (but not too tightly) forces the water through
the coffee grounds in a way that extracts the best flavour. Tamping too hard, will stop water
flowing through the ground coffee.
A good barista will tamper by pressing the grounds gently without tapping the filter holder,
then twisting slightly to ‘polish’ the surface of the compacted coffee.
5
WHAT IS STEAMING?
• Heating the milk using steam.
• For best results hold the jug still.
• Great for making lattes, mochas and hot chocolate, as dense froth is not required.
WHAT IS FROTHING?
• Combining the milk with air by slowly lowering the jug.
• Keep the jug slightly at an angle with the steaming wand, just under the surface of the milk.
WHAT IS TEXTURING?
• Combining the steamed and frothed milk to create a creamy, glossy texture.
• Perfect for making cappuccinos, Babycinos and flavoured cinos.
6
THE CUP
Coffee should always be served in a warm cup, this will keep the coffee hotter for longer and
enhance the aroma.
An espresso shot in particular will get cold very quickly if poured into a cold cup. For this
reason your cups must be pre-warmed before EACH use (see page 8).
FROTHING OR STEAMING
GENERAL TIPS
• For best results use cold milk – full-fat, the higher the fat content of the milk, the lighter the
froth will be.
• Don’t let milk boil – ideally it should reach 70-75°C. Once it reaches 79°C you will lose
the froth. Listen to the sound of the frothing; when it is ready the sound of the frothing will
become quieter. When the jug gets too hot to touch the milk is ready. You can also use a
thermometer.
• To avoid hot milk spillages when steaming, never fill the jug more than half way as the milk
volume will double when you froth.
• Operate the steam once you have finished making coffees to remove any remaining milk
residue from inside the steam wand.
• Wipe the steam wand after each use.
• If making coffee immediately after steaming, press the small coffee button to flush out excess
hot water, that may affect the quality of the extracted coffee.

An ESPRESSO is 35ml of water run through ground coffee in the machine. Once the espresso
is extracted (the basis of most coffee drinks) add water or milk to the coffee to create different
types of drinks.
LUNGO is a longer espresso run through the machine; all the water runs through the beans,
same flavour less intensity.
RISTRETTO is an espresso made with less than the usual amount of water, filling a small
