persons may cause serious injury to the
No responsibility can be accepted for
any damage if the appliance is used
incorrectly or for the wrong purposes.
The tap water will be filtered during
the brewing procedure. Please note
that the carbon filter must be
changed either after 60 brewing
procedures or after 2 months
(whichever is the sooner) so as to
maintain the effectiveness of the
filter. The old carbon filter cannot be
cleaned, and must be replaced with a
new one.
Filter control
The unit has an automatic filter control.
Switch the appliance on using the On/
Off button
. The green indicator
next to the button
(Figure 2/K) is
illuminated. After 60 brewing procedures, or at the latest after 2 months,
the green indicator will start to flash.
It is then time to change the carbon
filter. Afterwards, press button
(Figure 2/K) for longer than 3 seconds.
The indicator will be illuminated as
This appliance complies with the following EU Directives:
• 73/23/EEC dated 19.02.1973 “Low Voltage Directive”, including Directive
Amendment 93/68/EEC
• 89/336/EEC dated 03.05.1989 “EMC
Directive”, including Directive Amendment 92/31/EEC
Cable compartment (Figure 3)
Your coffee machine has a cable compartment. If the mains lead is too long,
you can push cable that is not needed
into the compartment on the rear of
the appliance.
Prior to using for the first time
Prior to preparing coffee for the first
time, you should perform one or two
brews with water only.
Fill the fresh water container up to the
top cup marking with cold water, and
with the appliance switched on, allow
the water to flow through into the
coffee jug without using ground coffee
or filter paper. To do this, press the On/
Off button
1 Inserting the carbon filter
Remove the carbon filter from the
plastic packaging and rinse it thoroughly under running water.
Open the lid of the water tank
(Figure 1/A).
Remove the container (Figure 4).
Insert the carbon filter in the filter
holder (Figure 5).
Insert the filter holder in the container
so that the marking arrows on the filter holder and the container are positioned opposite one another. Turn the
filter holder clockwise (Figure 6).
Close the lid of the water tank.
Briefly press button
if you want to
use the appliance without a carbon filter. The green indicator will go out.
2 Filling with water (Figure 7)
Raise the lid of the fresh water tank
(Figure 1/A). Fill the container with
clear, cold tap water. You will find cup
markings on the coffee jug for measuring out the required quantity.
The markings apply to the quantity of
fresh water. As the ground coffee
absorbs water, the amount of coffee
produced will be less.
Never use hot water.
Nor should you fill the fresh water
container with milk, prepared coffee,
tea etc.
3 Inserting filter paper (Figure 8)
Place size 4 filter paper in the filter
insert. Please first fold back the side
and lower edge of the paper filter.
So as not to lose any aroma while
grinding and brewing the coffee your
coffee machine has an aroma lid. Make
sure that it is always positioned correctly: the aroma lid has a semicircular
rib on its underside that needs to be
fitted into the matching recess on the
filter holder. The opening with the
sealing lip is positioned on the left.
Close the lid of the fresh water container again.
4 Place the coffee jug with lid on
the warming plate (Figure 9)
5 Coffee grinder
5.1 Place coffee beans in the
bean container (Figure 10)
The coffee grinder has a bean container (Figure 1/L), which keeps the
beans constantly aroma fresh. Fill the
container to the top and fasten firmly
with the lid.
The bean container holds approximately 125 g of coffee beans.
5.2 Grinding texture adjustment
(Figure 11)
You can change the size of coffee
ground to suit the strength of roast
using the adjusting ring (Figure 1/K).
Setting 1 = ● is for lightly roasted
beans, and setting 4 = ● for dark
roast beans. We recommend beginning
with a medium setting which is suitable for the types of coffee that are
usually commercially available.

9 Removing the jug (Figure 15)
When the jug is removed, the anti-drip
valve prevents dripping.
10 Cleaning
(It is imperative that these
instructions are observed!)
10.1 Coffee grinder
(Figures 14, 17-19)
From time to time (at the latest when a
blockage occurs), it is necessary to
clean the grinder channel to free it
from oily coffee residues.
To do this, proceed as follows: Remove
the plug from the mains.
Open the lid of the fresh water container and turn the screw (e.g., with a
coin) on the cover of the grinder channel to “Open” (Figure 17). Take hold of
the cover of the grinder channel at the
front left and remove it slowly
(Figure 18). Insert a paper filter in the
swivel filter and move the swivel filter
until it clicks into the grinding position. Brush the coffee residue (including that from the rear of the channel)
into the paper filter using a suitable
item (e.g., paintbrush) (Figure 19). The
coffee residue can also be removed
using a vacuum cleaner.
Then wipe the grinding channel with a
dry cloth. Press the release button to
move the swivel filter back into the
brewing position (Figure 14). Empty
the paper filter, replace the cover and
turn the screw back to the “Close”
position. Check that the cover is correctly positioned. Your coffee machine
is now fully ready for use again.
If dark, oily coffee beans are used, the
grinding channel needs to be cleaned
more often than for light beans.
To avoid blockages in the grinding
Do not use frozen coffee beans, as
water condenses on them on defrosting and can lead to blockages.
Do not swivel the swivel filter back to
the grinding position immediately
after brewing as steam rising from the
coffee grounds can cause a blockage.
Position the appliance sufficiently far
away from the cooker or a deep fat
fryer as fat can cause a blockage.
Always keep the container for the coffee beans closed.
Every now and again clean the coffee
grinder (Figure 1/L ) of oily residues
from the coffee beans using a dry
10.2 Coffee part (Figure 16/A
and B)
The filter insert can be removed for
emptying and cleaning.
Remove the glass jug and raise the
lid of the fresh water container
(Figure 1/A), place your finger in the
rear handle recess (Figure 16/A) and
pull the bracket up. This unlocks the
filter insert and it can be removed for
cleaning. Activate the anti-drip valve
several times during cleaning. To insert,
press the filter bracket vertically
upwards and into the rear handle
recess by its lug. Reposition the bracket
for the fresh water container
(Figure 16/B).
The filter insert is now relocked. Please
check that it is positioned correctly!
The glass jug can now be returned to
the warming plate.
Only clean the appliance using a damp
cloth; never immerse it in water. Only
the coffee jug and jug lid are dishwasher safe.
Descaling - to prolong the life of
your coffee machine
As a precaution we recommend descaling every three months. If you are
using a gold filter, remove it from the
filter insert before descaling. Use only
an environmentally friendly descaling
agent and always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not use any
concentrated descaler based on formic
acid. Nor should you use a powdered
descaling agent.
First fill the fresh water container with
water and then add the descaling
agent. Never vice versa.
Place the coffee jug with lid on the
warming plate. Allow the descaling
solution to work for approximately 15
minutes, then switch on the appliance.
Once the descaling solution has percolated through, switch the appliance
off. If necessary, repeat the descaling
procedure. Then repeat the procedure
at least twice using clear water.
Rinse the coffee jug, jug lid and filter
insert thoroughly under running water.
Activate the anti-drip valve several
times as it is rinsed.
• In th event of a short-term power failure, any data entered will be stored for
approximately 5 seconds.
• If the swivel filter is moved to the
grinding position by mistake, swivel it
back to the right using the release button (Figure 14).
What to do, if ...
• the swivel filter does not swivel properly to the brewing position?
– Ensure that the filter insert is correctly positioned (Item 10.2)!
– Check that the aroma lid is also positioned correctly!
• the coffee runs into the jug too slowly?
– Clean the anti-drip valve (Item10.2)!
– Descale the appliance (see instructions on descaling).
