ESPRESSO PRESSURE GAUGE
IDEAL ESPRESSO ZONE
The gauge needle, when positioned in the
middle zone during extraction, indicates
the espresso will be extracted at the ideal
pressure.
OVER EXTRACTE D ZONE
The gauge needle, when positioned in the
upper zone during extraction, indicates the
espresso has been extracted with too much
pressure. This occurs when the water flow
through the ground coffee is too slow and
results in an over extracted espresso that
is very dark and bitter with a mottled and
uneven crema.
Causes for over extraction include the grind
being too fine and/or too much ground
coffee in filter basket.
UNDER EXTRACTE D ZONE
The gauge needle, when positioned in the
lower zone during extraction, indicates the
espresso has been extracted with insufficient
pressure. This occurs when the water flow
through the ground coffee is too fast and
results in an under extracted espresso that
is watery and lacks crema and flavour.
Causes for under extraction include the grind
being too coarse and/or insufficient coffee
in filter basket and/or under tamping.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
PRE-HEATING
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 and place on the cup
warming tray.
SINGLE WALL FILTERS
Single Wall filters (1 & 2 CUP) are designed to
be used with freshly ground coffee and allow
you to experiment with grind and dose, to
create a more balanced espresso.
Using the hot water outlet
Turn the Steam/Hot Water dial to the Hot
Water position. The Steam/Hot Water LED on
the front panel will begin to flash indicating
the Hot Water function has been selected &
the Thermo-coil is increasing in temperature.
Hot Water will be dispensed from the Hot
Water spout. Turn the dial back to STANDBY
to stop the flow of Hot Water
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. Ensure the portafilter and filter
basket are preheated with hot water before
initial use.
NOTE
Wipe the filter and filter holder dry
before dosing with ground coffee as
moisture can encourage ‘channeling’
where water by-passes the ground
coffee during extraction.
THE GRIND
When 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 when under pressure. The resulting
espresso will be OVER EXTRACTED, dark
in colour and bitter in flavour 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 lacking in colour and flavour.

COFFEE DOSE and TAMPING
TRIMMING THE DOSE
•
•
•
•
•
Wipe coffee basket with a dry cloth.
Using Single Wall filter baskets, grind
enough coffee to fill the coffee basket.
You may need to experiment with the
GRIND AMOUNT dial to achieve the
correct dose.
Tap the portafilter several times to
collapse and distribute the coffee evenly
in the filter basket.
Tamp down firmly (using approx.
15–20kgs of pressure). The amount of
pressure is not as important as consistent
pressure every time.
•
•
•
As a guide to dose, the top edge of the
metal cap on the tamper should be level
with the top of the filter basket AFTER the
coffee has been tamped.
Insert the Razor™ dosing tool into the
coffee basket until the shoulders of the
tool rest on the rim of the basket. The
blade of the dosing tool should penetrate
the surface of the tamped coffee.
Rotate the Razor™ dosing tool back and
forth while holding the portafilter on
an angle over the knock box to trim off
excess coffee grinds. Your coffee filter
basket is now dosed with the correct
amount of coffee.
Wipe excess coffee from the rim of the
filter basket to ensure a proper seal is
achieved in the group head.
NOTE
If the extraction is too fast, make the
grind finer & repeat above steps.
If the extraction is too slow, make the
grind coarser and repeat above steps.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
PURGING THE GROUP HEAD
TEXTURING MILK
•
There are two phases to texturing milk,
stretching & heating. These two operations
should blend into one with the goal being
silky smooth textured milk at the correct
temperature.
Before placing the portafilter into the
group head, run a short flow of water
through the group head by pressing the
1 CUP button. This will purge any ground
coffee residue from the group head
and stabilise the temperature prior to
extraction.
INSERTING THE PORTAFILTER
Place the portafilter underneath the group
head so that the handle is aligned with the
INSERT position. Insert the portafilter into the
group head and rotate the handle towards
the centre until resistance is felt.
•
•
•
•
EXTRACTING ESPRESSO
•
•
•
•
Place pre-warmed cup(s) beneath the
portafilter and press the 1 CUP or 2 CUP
button for the required volume.
As a guide, the espresso will start to flow
after 4–8 seconds (infusion time) and
should be the consistency of dripping
honey.
If the espresso starts to flow after less than
3 seconds you have either under dosed
the filter basket and/or the grind is too
coarse. This is an UNDER-EXTRACTED shot.
If the espresso starts to drip but doesn’t
flow after 10 seconds, then you have
either over dosed the filter basket and/
or the grind is too fine. This is an OVEREXTRACTED shot.
A great espresso is about achieving the
perfect balance between sweetness, acidity
and bitterness.
The flavour 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.
•
•
•
•
Always start with fresh cold milk.
Fill the jug just below the ‘V’ at the
bottom of the spout.
Position the steam tip over the drip tray
and turn the STEAM/HOT WATER dial
from STANDBY to steam and wait until
the steam is flowing strongly.
Turn the steam dial to the STANDBY
position to pause the steam, then
within 8 seconds, insert steam wand tip
into milk and turn dial back to STEAM
position.
Insert the steam tip 1–2cm below the
surface of the milk close to the right hand
side of the jug at the 3 o’clock position.
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.
COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
27
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Lower the tip beneath the surface, but
keep the vortex of milk spinning. The milk
is at the correct temperature (60–65°C)
when the jug is hot to touch.
Move the steam dial to the STANDBY
position before taking the tip out of the
milk.
Set the jug to one side, turn steam on
to purge out any residual milk from the
steam wand and wipe steam wand with
a damp cloth.
Tap the jug on the bench 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.

Use freshly roasted coffee beans, with
a ‘roasted on’ date and use within
2 weeks of ‘roasted on’ date.
Store coffee beans in a cool, dark and dry
container. Vacuum sealed if possible.
Buy coffee beans in small batches to
reduce the storage time and store no
more than one weeks supply at any time.
Grind beans immediately before brewing
as ground coffee quickly loses its flavour
and aroma.

CARE & CLEANING
INSTALLING/REPLACING THE FILTER IN THE WATER TANK
The water filter provided helps to prevent
scale build up which over time can affect the
performance of your machine, potentially
causing blockages and heating, problems
Replacing the water filter every two months
will reduce the need to de-scale the machine.
If you live in a hard water area, we
recommend you change the water filter more
frequently.
Replacing The Water Filter
•
•
•
•
•

Remove the filter from the plastic bag,
and soak in a cup of water for 5 minutes
Rinse the filter under cold running water
for 5 seconds
Wash the stainless steel mesh in the
plastic filter compartment with water and
assemble
Set the date dial 2 months ahead
To install, push down to lock into place
The water filter can be removed from
the water tank during operation if not
required.
CARE & CLEANING
PORTAFILTER CLEANING
Periodically run water through the machine
with the portafilter in place, but without
any ground coffee, to rinse out any residual
coffee particles.
CLEANING CYCLE
The espresso machine features an in-built cleaning cycle which should be carried out
periodically. The CLEAN ME light will automatically illuminate to indicate when a cleaning
cycle is required.
Customer Service Centre or
refer to the Instruction Book
CLEANING CYCLE PROCESS GUIDE
DECALCIFYING
If cleaning is required, simply follow the steps
below and refer to the Machine Cleaning
Cycle guide.
After regular use, hard water can cause
mineral build up in and on many of the inner
functioning components, reducing
the brewing flow, power of the machine,
and affecting the quality of coffee.
We advise decalcifying the machine on
a regular basis (every 2–3 months) using
a mixture of white vinegar and water.
Follow the instructions provided, or use the
following as a guide:
1. Insert the cleaning disk into the one or
two cup filter disc.
2. Place the filter basket into the portafilter.
3. Put 1 cleaning tablet into the filter.
4. Lock the portafilter into the group head.
5. Turn the machine OFF.
6. Simultaneously press and hold the 1 CUP,
2 CUP and POWER button for 3 seconds.
7. The cleaning cycle will commence and
last for approximately 5 minutes.
Once complete, 3 beeps will sound.
Remove the portafilter and ensure the
tablet has completely dissolved.
If the tablet has not dissolved, repeat
steps 5 to 7 until tablet has dissolved.
