1. Manufacturer’s Introduction
Introduction
Swift espresso preparation system
The Swift EPSB grinds, doses and tamps coffee directly into the portafilter, eliminating the need to
do this manually. It measures and doses by volume, not time, so waste and product inconsistency
are reduced. At the same time, the Swift EPSB enhances coffee freshness by grinding coffee by
dose, not by bulk.

6. Equipment Operating Instructions
Engaging the portafilter
The portafilter engages directly to the Swift EPSB. Since the Swift EPSB has no watertight seal, it is
not necessary to force the portafilter into place. Engage the portafilter with only a light amount of
force. If the grinder shifts on the counter top, you are using too much force.
Engage portafilter gently
There is no need to force it into position
Operating the SWIFT
Once the portafilter is engaged, press one of the start buttons located at the front of the Swift
EPSB. The right and left buttons correspond to the right and left bean hoppers. Coffee will be
ground, dosed, and tamped from one of these hoppers, depending on which button you press.
The red indicator lights located above the start buttons are illuminated when the Swift EPSB is
grinding and tamping. Wait for the light to turn off before removing the portafilter. Once the red
light corresponding to the button selected is no longer illuminated, you may remove the portafilter
from the Swift and engage it into the espresso machine.
The Swift EPSB tamps the coffee as it is ground. When the volume of ground coffee in the
portafilter reaches the set level, the grinding motor turns off. The tamping motor continues to run
for 1-3 seconds, "polishing" the tamped coffee.

Blinking indicator lights
The indicator lights will flash for a number of reasons. These are summarized below:
•
•
You attempted to start the process with a full portafilter.
The safety timer has run out due to: Empty hopper; Closed bean gate; or Plugged hopper
chute.
There is no portafilter engaged in the Swift EPS.
•
Adjusting coffee grind
To achieve your desired brew time and coffee consistency, a manual adjustment can be
made to the grinder to modify the coarseness or fineness of the coffee. (The tamping pressure is
not adjustable and remains constant). Rotate the adjustor knobs as described below.
(1) Locate the grinder adjustor knob that corresponds to the left or right side of the grinder.
(2) Grinding finer coffee will result in a slower pour. To achieve a slower pour, adjust the knobs as
follows:
•
•
Left hopper: Turn the knob counterclockwise.
Right hopper: Turn the knob clockwise.
(3) Grinding coarser coffee will result in a faster pour. To achieve a faster pour, adjust the knobs as
follows:
•
•
Left hopper: Turn the knob clockwise.
Right hopper: Turn the knob anticlockwise.
When making this adjustment, remember to turn the knob at a minimum of half-turn increments.
Brew one or two shots to test the adjustment.
Note: Several variables can affect coffee quality: temperature, humidity,
freshness of roast. All of these can cause slight variations in shot times.

7. Equipment Care & Cleaning
Daily cleaning
Daily cleaning of the Swift EPSB is important for the quality of your coffee beverages and for the
mechanical life of the equipment. When the cleaning instructions are carried out each day, there
will be little chance of old coffee residues spoiling the flavour of your espresso drinks, or interfering
with the mechanical operation of your machine. There are three areas that must be cleaned: the
bean hoppers, the burr chamber, and the impeller.
HOPPERS AND BURR CHAMBER
.
1
2
1. Close the bean gate to prevent coffee from entering the burr chamber.
2. Grind coffee into the portafilter to clear the burr area of coffee. Usually two doses.
3. Unplug the Swift.

6. Insert the brush into the collection area above the impeller and again wipe away loose grounds.
7. Clean the impeller with a soft dry cloth.
8. Reinstall the impeller by turning counter-clockwise.
USING THE CLEAN-OUT TOOL
If either Grinder motor fails to operate, the usual cause is a clogged grinding chute or chamber.
2002 model Swifts now come with a tool that can be used to unclog the chute without
disassembling the grinder.
1. With this new modification to the grinder there is no need anymore to remove the tower to
use the clean-out tool.
2. Turn the grind adjust knob 4 turns in the direction of “faster pour”
11
3. Rotate the cover to the grind chute to access the grinding chute hole inside to clean the grinder.
4. Locate the clean-out tool access hole on either side of the coffee chute.
5. Gently and with caution insert insert the Clean-out tool into the hole and apply forward pressure
until the tool is fully inserted into the chute.
6. With the clean-out rod fully inserted, wiggle and rotate the tool to loosen the compacted coffee
7. Remove the tool and push the appropriate start button.
8. If the grinders chute clears return to normal operation.
9.If the grinder chute remains clogged, disassemble the grinding burr area and clean thoroughly.

GRINDING BURR REPLACEMENT
Periodic burr replacement is required. While the ceramic burrs used in the Swift EPSB have
a much longer life expectancy than normal steel burrs, it is still necessary to watch your
coffee for the tell-tale signs of burr wear. These signs include inconsistent shot extraction
times, and the absence of noticeable change in your espresso when adjustments are
made to the grinder.

WARNING Technician Tasks only to be completed by skilled service personnel
Safety micro switch
Impeller Micro-switch - 1
This micro-switch is activated
by the impeller disc. The impeller
disc rises upward as coffee
is dosed into the portafilter.
When sufficient coffee has
been ground and dosed, the
impeller rises up far enough to
actuate the micro-switch, which
causes the grinder motor to stop.
Safety Micro-switch – 2
This switch is activated when
the portafilter is engaged in the
bayonet ring.
The grinder will not operate if this switch
is not activated.
Grinder Motor Reostat – 1 & 2
Adjusting this reostat
determines how long the
tamper motor runs after
the grinder motor has shut off.
If the tamper motor stops, the reostat
can be adjusted clockwise
to increase the polish time. The rheostat
determines the maximum amount of time
the grinder motor runs. If the grinder motor
stops before the portafilter is completely
dosed with coffee, the rheostat should be adjusted
clockwise to increase the grind shut-off time.

WARNING Technician Tasks only to be completed by skilled service personnel
Fuse replacement and reset switches
The Swift EPSB has four fuses located at the rear of the machine behind the removable panel.
These correspond to each of the grinder motors, the tamping motor, and the electronic controls.
Occasionally it may be necessary to replace a fuse. When switching fuses be sure to use only
correctly rated replacement fuses. Electronics = 1 ea. @ 125m amps (normal); motor, grinder = 2
ea. @ 10 amps GDC; motor, tamper = 1 ea. @ 1 amp GDC. On model year 2002 and thereafter,
the 10 amp motor fuses are replaced with reset switches on the exterior of the grinder. The
head of the switch will protrude when it needs to be reset.

1. Insert a portafilter
2. Remove the loaded portafilter
3. Engage the portafilter into the Swift and then push either button. Remove and inspect the
surface of the coffee puck.
Coffee dose too low. Impeller must be raised.
The gap between the top of the coffee puck
and the bottom of the diffuser screen is too wide.
There is little to no indentation in the center of
the coffee pack from the diffuser screw.
Correct coffee dose.
The diffuser screen is barely touching the upper
surface of the coffee pcuk in the portafilter.
There is a small indentation from the diffuser screw.(1)
There is evidence of the diffuser screen slightly touching
the coffee pack around the outer circumference.(2)
28
WARNING Technician Tasks only to be completed by skilled service personnel
Coffee dose too high. Impeller must be lowered.
The diffuser screen is pressed into the coffee puck,
evidenced by a pronounced ring from the diffuser screen
around the circumference of the portafilter.(1)
There is also a deep indentation in the center
of the coffee pack from the diffuser screw.(2)
HOW TO PERFORM THE ADJUSTMENT:
1

3. Using a Long-arm L-key 3/32 HEX SIZE (part# 5.129 in your kit), loosen the screw several turns.
It is not necessary to completely remove the screw.
4. Pulling the shaft brake, use your other hand to rotate the impeller one or more complete turns.
Rotate the impeller to the left (anticlockwise) to lower the impeller, DECREASING THE DOSE.
Rotate the impeller to the right (clockwise) to raise the impeller, INCREASING THE DOSE.
Once set the height of the impeller tighten back the HEX screw on the shaft.
IMPORTANT
MAKE SURE TO LINE UP THE SCREW’S HOLE WITH THE FLAT SIDE OF THE SHAFT.
IF YOU TIGHTEN THE SCREW ON THE ROUND SIDE OF THE SHAFT, WHILE OPERATING
THE SCREW WILL LOSE GRIP AND THE GRINDER WILL SUDDENLY CRASH.
Once the proper adjustment has been made, reassemble the grinder and check for proper
operation.
