Box 775, Closter, NJ 07624 3. DE-PRESSURIZING CAUTION! Never open the boiler cap and never remove the filter holder as long as there is pressure in the boiler container. In order to check if the machine is still under pressure follow these steps: 1. The machine is on, the filter holder is inserted and the boiler cap is closed. 2. Place an empty cup under the frother nozzle (fig. 10). 3. Move the coffee/steam selector to the steam symbol (fig. 8). 4. Open the steam knob (fig. 9). Wait until all steam is released. 6 5. Turn the power switch off (fig. 6). 6. Open and remove the boiler cap (see chapter 5) 7. It is now safe to remove the filter holder. 8. Move the coffee/steam selector to the cup symbol (fig. 8). Caution: Never try to remove the filter holder with the carafe in place. Pressure could force the filter holder down, smashing the carafe and causing severe injuries. Always remove the carafe first. Caution: Never leave machine unattended when it is turned on (red light in the power switch is illuminated). Always turn the machine off when finished. 4. BEFORE INITIAL USE Carefully unpack your machine and remove all packing materials. Wipe the machine with a damp cloth. Clean the filter holder, the basket and the carafe with water and wipe dry. The filter holder, the basket, the glass carafe and lid are dishwasher safe (upper rack, away from any heating element). Caution: Do not immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. The boiler cap is not dishwasher safe. Make yourself familiar with the various parts: insert the basket into the filter holder (fig. 2) and insert the filter holder into the machine (fig. 3). Open and close the boiler cap. Make sure the power cord is guided in the back slot so the machine sits firmly and flat on an even surface. 5. SAFETY BOILER CAP To open the boiler cap: turn the cap a quarter turn counter clockwise. Slightly lift the cap and turn another quarter turn counter clockwise and lift the cap. To close the boiler cap: Place the cap onto the boiler neck and turn clockwise until cap sinks into the groove. Continue turning the cap until firmly locked. 6. HELPFUL HINTS • Espresso Drink: An espresso is a far richer drink with a more intense taste than regular brewed drip coffee. An espresso is normally 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of strong coffee. Espresso should be served immediately after brewing. If the espresso is too strong, you can add hot water. Add sugar to taste. • Preparing espresso is different than preparing regular drip coffee. The machine works under pressure, bringing the water to a boil and then forcing it through the ground coffee in a short period of time. • Important: The water in the boiler of the machine will get hotter during the brewing process. Towards the end of the brewing process the water will be so hot that it would burn your espresso. Therefore you never want to process all the water through the coffee as this will result in a burnt taste. • Which Coffee? Any coffee labeled "espresso" is suitable for your machine. Any coffee with at least 80% Arabica beans is ideal for espresso preparation. Check with your local coffee store. • Which Grind? Steam boiler espresso machines, do not require a fine espresso grind. For maximum flavor and aroma we recommend a medium espresso grind or a fine drip grind. If you grind your own coffee we recommend using a burr or disk/burr grinder. Small blade grinders can create "coffee dust". Coffee dust can dramatically slow down the water flow during brewing resulting in bitter and overheated coffee taste. • Cappuccino: 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed and frothed milk on top. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or cinnamon on top of 7 • • • • the milk froth. For a stronger taste increase the amount of coffee. For a milder taste increase the amount of milk. Latte: 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed milk (very little or no milk froth). Frothing: Foamy layer of milk froth on top of hot milk. Which kind of milk? Skim milk and 1% milk will produce more milk froth than 2% or regular milk. Markings on Glass Carafe: The markings on the glass carafe help you in the preparation of brewing and frothing. Upper rim of metal band: Maximum capacity of boiler (approx. 10 oz.). For best results always fill the boiler with 10 oz. of fresh cold water. 4 cup marking: Maximum amount of espresso you should brew (approx. 8 oz.). If you brew more than 8 oz. the coffee will taste burnt. Depending on the coffee roast you might even want to brew a little less to avoid a bitter aroma. 2 cup marking: (approx. 4 oz.), guide line for a double shot of espresso. Bottom line marking: Once the coffee has reached this level there is enough pressure in the boiler for steaming and frothing. 7. PREPARING ESPRESSO Caution: Do not leave the machine alone during brewing. Keep children away during brewing. 1. Make sure the machine is plugged in and turned off. The glass carafe is removed from the drip tray. Important: The steam knob (fig. 9) must be in the closed position. The coffee/steam selector points to the cup symbol in front of the machine (stronger coffee). Moving the coffee/steam selector to the right, accelerates brewing and decreases coffee strength. 2. Fill the basket with ground coffee, using the measuring scoop (fig.1). The basket is marked on the inside indicating "2 cups" and "4 cups". Never overfill the basket. Clear any excess coffee from the rim of the filter holder. Important: it is not necessary to tamp (press down) the coffee. 3. Insert the basket into the filter holder (fig. 2), then insert the filter holder into the machine (fig. 3). 4. Turn filter holder to the right until it reaches the "locked" position (fig.1,8). 5. Fill the glass carafe to the upper rim of the metal band (approx. 10 oz.) with fresh, cold water. 6. Unscrew the boiler cap (see chapter 5). Using the glass carafe, fill the boiler with water (fig. 4) and close the boiler cap securely (see chapter 5). 7. Place the carafe lid on the carafe so that the opening on the lid points towards the pouring spout of the carafe (fig. 7). Place the carafe on the drip tray as shown in fig. 1. 8. Turn the power switch on (fig. 6). The power switch illuminates and the machine starts heating the water. 9. After approx. 2 1/2 to 3 minutes hot water will start forcing its way through the filter holder into the carafe. When you have enough espresso in the glass carafe turn the power switch off and turn the coffee/steam selector to the steam symbol on the left to stop the flow. Remove the carafe and serve. Add a bit of sugar and enjoy. Tip: To avoid a "burnt taste" never process all the water through the coffee. Once the brewing noise increases and steam develops, stop the brewing. 8 10. Important: Do not open the boiler cap. Do not remove the filter holder. First depressurize the machine. See chapter 3. 11. After de-pressurizing remove the filter holder by turning it to the left to the "open lock" symbol. Then push the thumb-guard of filter holder over the hot rim of the basket. Dump the used coffee (fig. 13) and rinse the basket and the filter holder under running water. Return the coffee/steam selector to the cup symbol. 8. PREPARING CAPPUCCINO and LATTE Cappuccino and Latte are the most popular espresso-based coffee drinks. It is important that you follow the steps below precisely, otherwise you may not have enough steam pressure to froth and steam milk properly. 1. Fill a pitcher with 6 to 8 oz. of cold milk and set aside. The pitcher should have at least a 12 oz. capacity. Make sure the frother points outwards and the black frother nozzle is in place. 2. Follow steps 1 through 8 in chapter PREPARING ESPRESSO. 3. After approx. 2 1/2 to 3 minutes hot water will start forcing its way through the filter holder into the carafe. When the espresso coffee has reached the bottom marking of the glass carafe, slide the coffee/steam selector to the steam symbol. 4. Immerse the black frother nozzle into the pitcher with the milk so that the lower part of the nozzle is completely covered in milk (fig. 12, frothing position). The tip of the nozzle should not hit the bottom of the pitcher. 5. With the right hand slowly turn the steam knob towards the steam symbol (fig. 9 &10). Steam will push out into the pitcher. The more you open the steam knob the more steam will be released. If the steam is too powerful, turn the steam knob back to reduce the steam output. This procedure might take a little practice (see below). Once you have injected enough steam into your milk, turn the steam knob back to stop the steam output completely. Set the pitcher with the frothed milk aside. Caution: The steam pipe is hot 6. Move the coffee/steam selector back to the cup symbol. Coffee will continue brewing into the carafe. 7. Stand by and turn off the power switch when you have enough espresso in the glass carafe. Turn the coffee/steam selector to the steam symbol on the left to stop the flow. 8. Remove the carafe and pour the espresso into your latte/cappuccino cups. Add sugar to taste. Add the steamed milk and ladle some of the froth on top. Enjoy. 9. Important: Follow steps 10 and 11 in chapter 7, "Preparing Espresso". 9. HOW TO STEAM / FROTH EFFECTIVELY. The tip of the black frothing nozzle has three visible slots on top (fig. 11). If the three slots are immersed into the milk, the steaming action will create froth (for cappuccino). If the three slots are above the milk level, the frother will inject steam into the milk without or very little froth (for latte) (fig. 12). Recommendation: Always start with the three slots above the milk level. This way the steam first starts heating/steaming the milk. Then immerse the nozzle further into the milk to create froth. Set the steamed/frothed milk aside so that the froth can settle. 9 10. MAKING HOT WATER FOR TEA or OTHER HOT BEVERAGES You can use the machine to make approx. 8 oz. of hot tea or to prepare instant soup. Fill the boiler with up to 8 oz. of water. Insert the filter holder into the machine without the filter basket and turn the filter holder to the right until it is locked in place. Close the boiler cap. Make sure the coffee/steam selector is turned to the cup symbol. For tea: place one tea bag in the glass carafe. Hot instant soup: pour the dry ingredients of the instant soup into the glass carafe. Place the glass carafe with its lid underneath the filter holder. Turn the machine on and let all the water process through the filter holder into the carafe. When no more water comes out of the filter, turn the machine off, remove the carafe and serve. 11. CLEANING • Always unplug the machine before cleaning. • Never use scouring agents. • Wait until machine has cooled down. • Never immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. Never hold the machine under running water. To clean, simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth. • Clean the filter basket, the filter holder, and the glass carafe in a hot water/ mild soap solution. For your convenience, the filter holder, filter basket, and glass carafe can be put in the dishwasher's upper level, away from any heating element. Make sure the holes in the filter basket are free of old coffee deposits. • Remove the tray cover and drip tray and clean with hot water/mild soap solution. Replace the tray cover and drip tray and make sure the drip tray is locked in place. • Wipe the inner screen with a wet cloth (fig. 15). The screen is located above the filter holder area. CLEANING THE FROTHER NOZZLE Wait until the machine has cooled down. The metal frother pipe may still be hot. Pull the frother nozzle off and thoroughly rinse under warm water. Make sure the nozzle is free of any milk deposits. Replace the frother nozzle. Make sure it is firmly pushed up the frother tube. 12. DECALCIFYING We recommend decalcifying the machine every 3 months or more frequently if you use hard water with this product. Remove the nozzle from the steam pipe. Fill the glass carafe with 2 oz. of white vinegar and 6 oz. of cold water and pour into the boiler. Close the boiler cap. Insert the filter holder with the basket into the machine and lock the filter holder. Place the glass carafe without the lid under the filter holder on the drip tray. Place an empty cup under the steam pipe. Make sure the coffee/ steam selector points to the cup symbol and the steam knob is closed. Turn the machine on and let the solution pass through the filter holder into the machine. With the carafe about ¾-filled with solution (6 oz.), slide the coffee/steam selector to the steam symbol. Slowly turn the steam knob to pass the solution through the steam pipe and into the empty cup. Once steaming has stopped, close the steam knob, slide the coffee/steam selector to the cup symbol and turn the machine off. Remove and empty the carafe and cup. Allow machine to cool for about five minutes and open and remove the boiler cap. Repeat above process once or twice with only 10 water to remove any vinegar taste from the machine.
