Brewing temperature
Pre-brewing ground coffee
The ideal brewing temperature will depend on:
When the pre-brewing function is
turned on, the freshly ground coffee is
first moistened with a little hot water.
Then the remaining water is forced
through the moistened coffee at high
pressure. This helps release the flavor
of the coffee.
– the type of coffee,
– whether an espresso or a coffee is
being prepared, and
– the altitude of the region.
If the coffee system is located at more
than 6562 ft. (2000 meters) above sea
level, the brewing temperature needs to
be set lower due to the change in pressure. This is because the boiling point
for water at a high altitude above sea
level is lower than the boiling point for
water at sea level.
You can set pre-brewing for a normal
length of time or an extra long length of
time. Alternatively, you can turn off the
"Pre-brewing" function.
The machine is supplied with the "Prebrewing" function turned off.
 Use the arrow keys  to highlight
Pre-brewing. Then tap OK.
Tip: Not all types of coffee can withstand high temperatures. Certain types

Portion size
The flavor of the coffee produced depends not just on the type of coffee
used, but also on the amount of water
used. You can program the amount of
water to suit the size of your cups and
the type of coffee you are using.
For coffee drinks that use milk you can
also set the amount of milk or milk froth
to be dispensed with these drinks. Additionally, you can set the portion sizes
for hot milk and milk froth alone.
Each type of drink has a maximum portion size that can be programmed into
the machine. The coffee system halts
preparation of the coffee once this portion size has been reached. The maximum possible portion size for this type
of drink is then saved in the machine.
The changed portion size is always
saved in the current User profile. The
name of the current profile appears in
the top left-hand side of the display.
There are two ways of initiating the programming of the portion size:
– By tapping the drink button when you

Electrical connection
Make sure that the power to the machine is OFF before installing or performing maintenance or repairs. All
electrical work should be performed by
a qualified electrician in strict accordance with national and local safety
regulations. Installation, repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous.
If there is any question concerning the
electrical connection of this appliance
to your power supply, please consult a
licensed electrician or contact Miele’s
Technical Service Department. See
back page for contact information.
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
GROUNDED
Verify that the voltage, load and circuit
rating information found on the data
plate match the household electrical
supply. This data must match to prevent damage to the coffee system. If in
doubt, consult a licensed electrician.
The necessary connection information
is given on the data plate inside your

The coffee system comes equipped
with a 6 ft (1.8 m) power cord with a
NEMA 5-15P molded plug for connection to a 120 V, 15 A, 60 Hz power supply.
Do not connect the appliance to a
power inverter or directly to power produced outside of the normal electrical
grid (i.e. direct solar or wind power
source).
Direct connection to such power
sources can cause power surges and
tripped breakers when the appliance is
turned on, and could damage the appliance.
Do not connect the appliance to energy
saving plugs or outlets. The reduction
of power to the appliance caused by
these devices will cause the appliance
to run hot and may damage it and/or
shorten its usable life.

Ventilation
Condensation water can damage the
coffee system or surrounding cabinets.
The specified ventilation cross-sections absolutely must be observed.
Do not cover or block the ventilation
cross-sections.
Clean the ventilation cross-sections
on a regular basis.
Due to the heating of water, water
steam can condense inside the coffee
system and inside the door.
During installation, ensure there is sufficient ventilation at the rear of the appliance so that steam and warm air are
able to escape without hindrance.
– A ventilation gap of at least 1
5/8" (40 mm) depth must be provided
behind the appliance for air to circulate.
– The ventilation cross-sections in the
plinth, surrounding cabinets and
above the appliance must amount to
at least 78 3/4 square inches
2
(200 cm ) to ensure that air can circulate without obstruction.
Top ventilation cross-section
The ventilation cross section at the top
of the appliance can be constructed in
different ways:
The surrounding cabinets should be designed as follows:
a directly above the coffee system
with a ventilation grille (free airflow of
at least 78 3/4 square inches /
2
200 cm )
b between the surrounding cabinets
and the ceiling
c through a suspended ceiling
– Air intake  occurs via the plinth at
the bottom of the appliance and the
air escapes at the top  at the rear

Installation
Installing the coffee system
Make sure that there is no power to
the machine during installation. This
also applies when uninstalling.
The machine may only be operated
when installed and in an ambient
temperature range between +50°F
(10°C) to +100°F (38°C).
For installation, you will require two
socket wrenches in sizes 3 and 5.
Tip: We recommend providing a place
to sit the coffee system which is the
same height as the building-in niche.
This will make it easier to connect the
machine to the electrical supply and
water line.
To ensure the appliance door is flush
with the cabinetry front, a seal around
the building-in niche is needed or a
sealing strip must be adhered to the
coffee system.
 Using the large allen key, unscrew all
four feet out by about 3/4" (2 mm).
The feet can be unscrewed by up to
approx. 4" (10 mm).
 Connect the appliance to the water
intake supply line (see "Plumbing").
 Connect the appliance to the electrical supply.
 If there is not a seal at the front of the
building-in niche, adhere the Miele
sealing strips from the back (see picture) before installing the coffee system.The sealing strips can be purchased from Miele.
Sealing strips are available from your
Miele dealer or from Miele.
Ensure the electrical and water connection does not get damaged when
pushing the appliance into the niche.
 Push the coffee system all the way
into the building-in niche.
 Make sure the coffee system is centered and straight in the building-in
niche. If this is not the case, align the
machine using the four bases.
The appliance comes with four M5
socket screws to help you align and secure it in the building-in niche.
95

screws to center the machine in the
niche.
 Tighten both upper socket screws by
hand to secure the machine in the
unit. Do not over-tighten them.
