Assembly
BEFORE FIRST USE
Machine Preparation
Remove and discard all labels and packaging
materials attached to your espresso machine.
Ensure you have removed all parts and
accessories before discarding the packaging.
Remove the packaging and the plastics bags
containing the water filter and water filter
holder. Clean parts and accessories (water tank,
portafilter, filter basket, jug) using warm water
and a gentle dish washing liquid. Rinse well
then dry thoroughly.
Functions
• Insert the filter into the two parts of the filter
holder.
• To install the assembled filter holder into the
water tank, align the base of the filter holder
with the adapter inside the water tank.
Push down to lock into place.
Insert bean hopper into position on-top of the
machine. Turn dial to lock into place.
Fill hopper with fresh beans.
Select the guide to find out more about your Barista Touch
or exit to proceed to your drink selection
Exit
• Remove the water filter and water filter holder
from the plastic bag.
• Soak the filter in cold water for 5 minutes.
• Wash the filter holder with cold water.
• Fill the water tank with cold water before
sliding back into position at the back of the
machine and locking into place.
NOTE
Replacing the water filter after three months
or 10.6 USgal / 40L will reduce the need to
descale the machine. Filter can be purchased
at Breville webpage.
NOTE
DO NOT use highly filtered, demineralised or
distilled water in this machine. This may affect
the taste of the coffee.

GRINDING OPERATION
1. Press POWER button to turn the
machine on.
2. Follow the instructions on screen to guide
you through first use setup.
3. After completing setup, the machine will
tell that it is ready to use.
Your Barista Touch is now ready
INSTALLING THE WATER FILTER
• Set the reminder for next month of
replacement. We recommend to replace the
filter after 3 months.
FIRST USE
Guide
The machine is now in STANDBY mode.
4. Touch "Guide" and the machine will guide
you step by step to make your first coffee.
Touch the  and go to the Drinks Menu or
< to repeat the Setup. To repeat the Guide at
any time, go to Settings Menu.
TIP
We recommend quality 100% Arabica beans
with a 'Roasted On' date stamped on the bag,
not a 'Best Before' or 'Use By' date. Coffee beans
are best consumed between 5–20 days after
the 'Roasted On' date. Stale coffee may pour too
quickly from the portafilter spouts and taste
bitter and watery.
NOTE
If your water hardness is either 4 or 5 when
tested, we strongly recommend you change to
an alternate water source.
Filtered, bottled spring or mineral water will
extend both the life of your built-in filter and
descale intervals as well as superior taste.
Please ensure to test the water hardness of the
alternative water source you've chosen and
input into the machine accordingly. Avoid
using overly filtered water, like RO water
unless some mineral content is being added
back to the final water. Never use distilled
water, or water with no or low mineral content
as this will affect both the taste.

Tips
PRE-HEATING
Dual Wall Filter Baskets
Heating your cup or glass
A warm cup will help maintain the coffee’s
optimal temperature. Pre-heat your cup by
rinsing with hot water from the hot water outlet
and place on the cup warming tray.
Use Dual Wall filter baskets if using
pre-ground coffee.
Dual Wall filter baskets regulate the pressure
and help to optimize the extraction regardless
of the grind, dose, tamp pressure or freshness.
Heating the portafilter and filter basket
A cold portafilter and filter basket can
reduce the extraction temperature enough to
significantly affect the quality of your espresso.
Always ensure the portafilter and filter basket
are pre-heated with hot water from the hot
water outlet before initial use.
NOTE
1 CUP
2 CUP
NOTE
Always wipe the portafilter and filter basket dry
before dosing with ground coffee as moisture
can encourage ‘channeling’ where waterbypasses the ground coffee during extraction.
SELECTING A FILTER BASKET
Single Wall Filter Baskets
Use Single Wall filter baskets if grinding fresh
whole coffee beans.
Single Wall filter baskets allow you to
experiment with grind, dose and tamp to create
a more balanced espresso.
• Regardless of whether you use Single Wall or
Dual Wall filter baskets, use the 1 CUP basket
when brewing a single cup and the 2 CUP
basket when brewing two cups or a stronger
single cup or mug.
• You will need to adjust the grind amount and
size if switching from a single basket to a
double basket, or vice versa.
The provided filter baskets are designed for:
1 CUP basket = approx. 8–10g.
2 CUP basket = approx. 15–18g.
NOTE
1 CUP
2 CUP
You may need to experiment with how much
coffee is inserted into the filter basket or how
long the grinder needs to run to achieve the
correct dose. For example, when using a finer
espresso grind with the Single Wall filter
baskets, you may need to increase the grind
amount to ensure the filter basket is correctly
dosed.
Machine will guide you on screen, step by step
to make an actual coffee.

THE GRIND
EXTRACTING ESPRESSO
If grinding coffee beans, the grind size should
be fine but not too fine. The grind size will
affect the rate at which the water flows through
the ground coffee in the filter basket and the
taste of the espresso.
If the grind is too fine (looks like powder and
feels like flour when rubbed between fingers),
the water will not flow through the coffee even
when under pressure. The resulting espresso
will be OVER EXTRACTED, dark in color and
bitter in flavor.
If the grind is too coarse the water will flow
through the ground coffee in the filter basket
too quickly. The resulting espresso will be
UNDER EXTRACTED and lacking in color
and flavor.
• Place pre-warmed cup(s) beneath the
portafilter and touch the 'Brew' button for the
desired volume.
• Due to pre-infusion time, the espresso will
not start to flow immediately.
A great espresso is about achieving the perfect
balance between sweetness, acidity and
bitterness. The flavor of your coffee will depend
on many factors, such as the type of coffee
beans, degree of roast, freshness, coarseness
or fineness of the grind, dose of ground coffee,
and tamping pressure.
Experiment by adjusting these factors just one
at a time to achieve the taste of your preference.

HINTS & TIPS
HINTS & TIPS
For optimum milk texturing performance it
is critical that the holes around the steam tip
are clear. Even partially blocked holes may
affect the ability of the steam wand to produce
sufficient foam.
Always wipe the wand and tip with a damp
cloth BEFORE returning the wand to the down
position. Wiping the wand will remove the
majority of milk and allow the automatic purge
feature to more effectively remove any
residual milk.

PUSH
AIR TIGHT
CONTAINER
For manual texturing
• Lift the steam wand and insert the steam tip
0.4-0.8 inch / 1-2 cm below the surface of the
milk close to the right hand side of the jug at
the 3 o’clock position. Enter manual frothing
mode by pressing and holding the 'Milk'
button (approx 3secs), and then start frothing
by touching the button once again.
• Keep the tip just under the surface of the
milk until the milk is spinning clockwise,
producing a vortex (whirlpool effect).
• With the milk spinning, slowly lower the jug.
This will bring the steam tip to the surface of
the milk & start to introduce air into the milk.
You may have to gently break the surface of
the milk with the tip to get the milk spinning
fast enough.
• Keep the tip at or slightly below the surface,
continuing to maintain the vortex. Texture
the milk until sufficient volume is obtained.
• Lift the handle of the jug to lower the tip
beneath the surface, but keep the vortex
of milk spinning. Use the touch screen
to monitor the milk temperature. We
recommend 130°F-150°F / 55°C–65°C.
• Touch the Milk button to stop steaming
BEFORE lowering the jug and taking the tip
out of the milk.

to cover the ring around steam wand.
• To remove any condensed water from the
system, ensure the steam wand is in the down
position over the drip tray then touch the
Milk button, allow steam to flow for a few
seconds, then touch the Milk button to stop.
• When texturing milk automatically, ensure
the steam wand is fully down.

There are two phases to texturing milk.
The first is stretching the milk to aerate it and
the second is swirling the milk to make it silky
smooth. These two operations should blend
into one.
Some types of coffee may require a wider grind range to achieve an ideal extraction or brew.
A feature of your Barista Touch™ is the ability to extend this range with an adjustable upper burr.
We recommend making only one adjustment at a time.

TEXTURING MILK
ADJUSTING CONICAL BURRS
• Tap the jug on the counter-top to collapse
any bubbles.
• Swirl the jug to polish and re-integrate the
texture.
• Pour milk directly into the espresso.
• The key is to work quickly, before the milk
begins to separate.
FINE
• Fresh, quality coffee beans will give you the
best possible extraction.
• We recommend quality 100% Arabica beans
with a ‘Roasted On’ date stamped on the bag,
not a ‘Best Before’ or ‘Use By’ date.
• Coffee beans are best consumed between
5–20 days after the ‘Roasted On’ date.
Ideally only grind directly before the
extraction to maximize flavor.
• Buy coffee beans in small batches to reduce
the storage time.
• Store coffee beans in a cool, dark and dry
container. Vacuum seal if possible.

The provided water filter helps prevent scale build-up in and on many of the inner functioning
components. Replacing the water filter after three months or 10.6 USgal / 40L will reduce the need
to descale the machine.
The limitation of 10.6 USgal / 40L is based on water hardness level 4. If you are in level 2 area,
you can increase this to 16 USgal / 60L.

CLEANING THE STEAM WAND
• The steam wand should always be cleaned
after texturing milk. Wipe the steam wand
with a damp cloth.
• If any of the holes in the tip of the steam
wand become blocked, it may reduce frothing
performance.
• Go to 'Settings' > 'Steam wand cleaning' and
follow the guide on the screen.

AND PORTAFILTER
• The filter baskets and portafilter should be
rinsed under hot water immediately after use
to remove all residual coffee oils.
• If any of the holes in the filter basket become
blocked, use the pin on the end of the
provided cleaning tool to unblock the hole(s).
• If the hole(s) remain blocked, dissolve a
cleaning tablet in hot water and soak filter
basket and portafilter in solution for approx.
20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
CLEANING THE SHOWER SCREEN
• The group head interior and shower screen
should be wiped with a damp cloth to remove
any ground coffee particles.
• Periodically purge the machine. Place an
empty filter basket and portfilter into the
group head. Touch the 'Brew' button and run
a short flow of water to rinse out any residual
coffee.
CLEANING THE DRIP &
STORAGE TRAY
• The drip tray should be removed, emptied
and cleaned at regular intervals, particularly
when the drip tray full indicator is showing
EMPTY ME!
• Remove the grid from the drip tray.
Lift the coffee grind separator and dispose
of any coffee grounds. The EMPTY ME!
indicator can also be removed from the drip
tray by pulling upwards to release the side
latches. Wash all parts in warm soapy water
with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
• The storage tray (located behind the drip
tray) can be removed and cleaned with a soft,
damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleansers,
pads or cloths which can scratch the surface.
