Preparing
before use
1. Place the espresso machine onto a dry,
stable benchtop.
2. Ensure the drip tray and grill are in place.
3. Fill the espresso machine with water. There
are a couple of ways in which the water
reservoir can be filled;
a) Simply lift the lid of the water reservoir
at the top of the espresso machine (1)
and using a jug, fill with fresh cold
water or filtered water (2).
b) Alternatively the water reservoir can
be removed and filled with fresh cold
water. To do so, lift the lid and using it
as a handle simply slide out the water
reservoir (3). Then fill with fresh cold
water or filtered water (4). Replace the
water reservoir firmly and close the lid
(5).
4. Insert the power cord into a 230-240V
AC power outlet and switch the power on.
Press the power button once to turn the
espresso machine on (6). The light located
on the power button will illuminate red and
the temperature indicator line on the LCD
will start to flash from the symbol, this
is to indicate that your espresso machine is
on and is heating up.
When the temperature indicator line on the
LCD has stopped flashing and 'READY' is
displayed, this indicates that the espresso
machine is heated and ready to use (7).
Note: Before turning on the espresso machine
ensure that the operating dial on the side of
the espresso machine is in the off position.
14
5. Place glasses and cups on the warming
plate (8).
Important: For first time use or if the machine
has not been used for some time, it is
important that the machine is rinsed as
follows:
6. Fit the filter handle with either the one or
two cup filter basket (9). Secure the filter
handle to the group head (10) (11).
7. Place a sufficiently large container under
both pouring spouts (12).
8. Ensure the espresso machine is in
espresso/hot water mode, so the red light
on the power button and the orange light
on the button are illuminated.
Note: Should the espresso machine not be in
espresso/hot water mode, so the orange light
on the button is not on, the coffee maker
needs to press the button the activate
the espresso/hot water mode. By design the
temperature of the espresso machine will
adjust as necessary.
Once the espresso machine is heated to
the correct temperature, the temperature
indicator line on the LCD will stop flashing
and and 'READY' will be displayed.
Tip: Remember if 'READY' is not displayed on
the LCD the espresso machine is adjusting
the temperature of the heating system.
9. Turn the operating dial anticlockwise to
the espresso setting (13) and allow
the water to run through until the water
reservoir is empty.
Guide to the perfect espresso
Heading
Before starting to prepare for making
espresso, ensure the espresso machine is in
espresso/hot water mode, so the red light on
the power button and the orange light on
the button are illuminated.
Note: Should the espresso machine not be in
espresso/hot water mode so the orange light
on the button is not on, the coffee maker
button to activate the
needs to press the
espresso/hot water mode.
Preheat Glasses
1. Preheat the glasses/cups by filling them
with hot water as this will assist to preserve
the crema of the espresso. Set the glasses/
cups aside.
Preheat Filter Handle and Filter Basket
2. Select the appropriate filter basket and
place it into filter handle (14).
Tip: Use the one cup filter basket for a single
serve of espresso and the two cup filter
basket for a double serve of espresso.
3. Take the filter handle, hold it under the
group head and purge water. With the filter
basket positioned under the group head
turn the operating dial anticlockwise to the
espresso setting to start the water flow
and turn it back to the off position to stop
(15).
4. Dry the filter basket.
Dosing and Tamping
5. Using the measuring spoon supplied, place
finely ground coffee into the filter basket
(16).
6. Rest the filter handle with the filter basket
in position onto the benchtop. Take the
coffee tamp, apply firm level packing
pressure (17), twisting 90 degrees to
polish the grounds. This seals the surface
of the coffee cake.
7. Brush any excess coffee grounds from
around the edge of the filter basket (18).
Important: Be sure not to over dose the filter
basket with coffee.
Tip: The coffee dosage and the degree of
tamping should remain the same every time
you make a coffee the only thing that should
vary is the coarseness of the coffee grounds
and this will vary depending on the bean. For
example to achieve a slower espresso pour
rate use a finer grind and a coarser grind for
a faster espresso pour rate.
Tip: Ensure the coffee tamp is dry because if
it is wet the coffee grinds will stick to it.
The Espresso Pour
8. Lock the filter handle onto the group head
(19)(20).
9. Empty the glasses/cups and place below
the pouring spouts (21).
Note: Check to see that the espresso machine
is ready for use, remember that if 'READY'
is not displayed on the LCD the espresso
machine is adjusting the temperature of the
heating system.
10. Turn the operating dial anticlockwise to
the espresso setting to start the pour
and turn it back to the off position to
stop (22).
11. Check the espresso pour. The ideal
pour is dark and caramel with reddish
reflections.
12. Serve espresso immediately.
Caring for your Espresso Machine
13. Remove the filter handle from the group
head (23).
14. Discard the used coffee grinds from the
filter basket (24).
15
Heading
Guide to the perfect espresso (continued)
Tip: After each use of the espresso machine
we recommend that a small amount of water
is cycled through the group head as this will
wash out any old or used coffee grinds stuck
to the underside of the group head. Simply
turn the operating dial to the espresso
setting and allow some water to run through.
Standby Mode
After 1 hour of non-use the espresso machine
will automatically switch to standby mode.
16
To tell you that the espresso machine is in
standy mode, 'STANDBY' will be displayed on
the LCD and nothing else.
After a further 26 hours of non-use the
espresso machine will turn off.
When the machine is in standby mode by
pressing any button or turning the operating
dial will return the espresso machine to
normal.
Guide
Heading
to milk texturing
Milk texturing is the steaming of milk. The
steam does two things, firstly it heats the
milk and secondly the steam mixes air
with the milk to form an ‘emulsion’ of tiny
bubbles that gives a silky velvet texture.
Similar to making an espresso, perfecting the
art of milk texturing takes time and practice.
Tip: Remember espresso is the foundation
for all café style drinks and the milk is the
variable.
Before starting to prepare for milk texturing,
ensure the espresso machine is in steam
mode, so the red light on the power button
and orange light on the
steam button are
illuninated.
Note: Should the espresso machine not
be in steam mode, so the orange light on
the
steam button is not on, the coffee
maker needs to press the
steam button to
activate the steam mode.
1. Determine how much milk is needed
based on the number of cups being made
or the size of the texturing jug.
Tip: Keep in mind that the volume of milk
will increase or ’stretch’ during the texturing.
2. Pour cold refrigerated milk into a
stainless steel jug, between ½ to ²/³ full.
Tip: Store the stainless steel jug in the fridge
so that it is well chilled. Also be sure not to
rinse the jug with warm water before use.
3. Purge the steam wand of any water.
With the steam wand positioned over the
drip tray activate the steam function by
turning the operating dial to the
steam
setting (25). Once any water has been
purged close the steam by turning the
operating dial to the off position (26).
4. Swing the steam wand to the side of the
espresso machine (27).
5. Place the steam wand into the milk so
that the nozzle is about a centimetre
below the surface and activate the steam
function by turning the operating dial to
the
setting (28).
6. Angle the jug so that the steam wand is
resting on the spout of the jug and lower
the jug until the tip of the steam nozzle
is just below the surface of the milk. This
will start to create a whirlpool action in
the milk (29).
Note: Do not allow the steam to spurt
unevenly or it will create aerated froth/large
bubbles. If this is happening raise the jug so
that the steam nozzle is lowered deeper into
the milk. Remember the ideal consistency is
a silky velvet texture.
7. As the steam heats and textures the milk,
the level of the milk in the jug will begin
to rise. As this happens follow the level
of the milk by lowering the jug, always
keeping the tip of the steam nozzle just
below the surface.
8. Once the foam is created raise the jug
until the steam nozzle is in the centre of
the milk (30).
Tip: The amount of foam required will vary
depending on the drinks being made, for
example a cappuccino requires more foam
than a flat white.
9. Close the steam immediately when the
milk is heated to between 60-65°C by
turning the operating dial to the off
position (31).
Tip: If you don’t have a thermometer a good
indication that the correct temperature has
been reached is when you are unable to leave
the palm of your hand against the side of the
jug for more than 3 seconds.
Important: Do not boil the milk.
10. Remove the jug, immediately wipe the
steam nozzle and wand with a clean damp
cloth (32) and purge a small amount of
steam.
17
Heading
Guide to milk texturing (continued)
11. With the jug in hand tap the jug on
the bench top to release the trapped
air bubbles and then swirl the jug in a
circular motion until the milk becomes
shiny and no bubbles remain, this helps
the milk and froth combine for an even
consistency. By swirling the milk you can
see the foam in the jug swirling with your
movement this will enable you to judge
the thickness of your foam.
Using the hot water function
When using the hot water function the
espresso machine needs to be in espresso/hot
water mode, so the red light on the power
button and the orange light on the button
are illuminated.
Note: Should the espresso machine not be in
espresso/hot water mode, so the orange light
on the button is not on, the coffee maker
needs to press the button to activate the
espresso/hot water mode.
The hot water function is ideal for preparing
long blacks, hot chocolate and filling coffee
plungers and tea pots.
18
1. Place the cup or container under the
steam/hot water nozzle and activate the
hot water function by turning the steam
operating dial to the
steam setting (33).
2. Once you have dispensed the required
amount of hot water into the cup or
container, close the hot water by turning
the operating dial to the off position (34).
3. Remove the cup or container and swing the
steam/hot water wand over the drip tray to
catch any drips of water (35).

ESPRESSO (SHORT BLACK)
MACCHIATO
Espresso is a concentrated, full bodied coffee
with a stable layer of cream on top – known
as ‘crema’. An espresso is the foundation of
all café coffee. Variations are achieved by
adding different amounts of milk and froth.
Macchiato, Italian for ‘to stain or mark’.
Traditionally served as a standard espresso
with a dash of milk and a small dollop of
froth into the middle of the ‘crema’.
• 90mL espresso glass or demitasse cup
• single or double espresso
• single espresso (30-35mL)
• marked with steamed milk froth
LONG BLACK
FLAT WHITE
A standard espresso with hot water, served in
a regular coffee cup or mug. The hot water is
added first so that the ‘crema’ is maintained.
Another old favourite, the Flat White is
an espresso with steamed milk, served in
a regular coffee cup or mug. The layer of
frothed milk on top should be 2mm to seal
the coffee.
• 190mL cup
• hot water (to taste)
• single or double espresso
• 90mL espresso glass or demitasse cup
• 190mL cup
• single or double espresso
• steamed milk

Espresso Recipes (continued)
CAFFE LATTE
CAFFE MOCHA
An espresso with steamed milk, typically
served in a glass. The layer of frothed milk on
top should be 10mm to seal the coffee.
• 220mL glass or cup
Made in a similar way to a cappuccino but
with the addition of drinking chocolate.
Simply stir the chocolate into the espresso
prior to adding the steamed milk and froth.
• single or double espresso
• 190-240mL cup or tall glass
• steamed milk

a dusting of chocolate. The resulting drink is
approximately two-thirds milky coffee, onethird froth.
A variation on the original Vienna coffee, this
delicious drink is made up of an espresso
topped with lightly whipped cream. It can
also be dusted with cinnamon or drinking
chocolate.
• 190-240mL cup
• 190mL cup
• single or double espresso

Care and Cleaning
The coffee making process involves extracting
oils out of coffee grinds to make espresso
coffee. Deposits of these oils build up over
time and affect the taste of the coffee and
operation of the espresso machine.
Regular cleaning to remove these oils is
essential and will maintain the quality of the
coffee the espresso machine produces and
result in less maintenance being required.
This is easy to do by following a few quick
and easy cleaning steps after each coffee
making session;
 Cycle water through the group head,
 Purge steam through the steam wand,
 Wipe the steam wand clean with a damp
cloth immediately after use,
 Remove the filter basket from the filter
handle and clean away any old coffee oils,
and
 Empty the drip tray and rinse.
Important: Never wash any of the espresso
machine parts or accessories in the
dishwasher.
Drip tray and grill
Remove the grill and drip tray at regular
intervals to empty (36) (37). Clean with
water and a little non-abrasive washing up
liquid, rinse and dry.
Over time it is normal for the inside of the
drip tray to be stained by the oils in the
coffee.
Note: Ensure that when you are replacing the
drip tray and grill that the plastic lining is in
position (38).
Group head, filter handle & filter baskets
The filter baskets and filter handle should be
rinsed with warm water after each use and
then dried thoroughly.
To clean the group head of any old coffee
grinds cycle water through and wipe the
group head and around the inside rim with a
damp cloth.
Should the holes in the filter baskets become
clogged with coffee granules use a fine
bristled brush to remove them.
Important: Should the filter remain blocked
after normal cleaning, supplied with your
espresso machine is a cleaning pin. The
cleaning pin for the filter is the GREY pin
located under the base of the water reservoir
(39)(40). With the cleaning pin insert it into
the single hole in the base of the filter (41).
Group head rubber seal
The group head seal is located on the
underside of the group head and creates
a seal against the filter handle during the
espresso pour.
Note: During long periods of non-use we
recommend that the filter handle not be
left attached to the group head as this will
reduce the life of the seal.
Over time the seal will lose its elasticity
and require replacement, depending on use
usually every 12 months. Signs that the seal
is deteriorating are when the filter handle
cannot create the necessary seal and steam
escapes from around the group head during
the espresso pour.
Note: Contact Sunbeam on 1800 025 059
should you think that the group head seal
needs replacing.
Cup warming plate and exterior
Wipe over the unit with a damp cloth and
wipe dry. Do not use abrasives or metal
scourers as these will scratch the exterior

Care and Cleaning (continued)
Steam wand
Keeping the steam arm clean is essential
to ensure maximum efficiency of the steam
function. A build up of caramelised/dried
milk on the steam wand will impair the
steaming and texturing ability of the espresso
machine.
Important: Wipe the steam wand clean with a
damp cloth immediately after each use and
purge a small amount of steam.
Should the milk dry/caramelise on the
steam wand, simply wrap the wand with
a clean damp cloth, turn the steam wand
over the drip tray and turn the steam on for
approximately 10 seconds (42). With the
cloth still on the steam wand leave to soak
for about 5 minutes and you will find that
after this time the dry/caramelised milk will
easily wipe away. Repeat process if still dirty.
22
Important: Never clean the steam wand with
an abrasive pad as this will damage the
steam wand.
Should the steam wand become blocked,
supplied with the espresso machine is a
cleaning pin. The cleaning pin for the steam
wand is the BLACK pin located under the
base of the water reservoir (39)(43).
With the cleaning pin insert it into the hole
in the base of the steam nozzle (44). Should
the steam wand remain blocked unscrew the
steam nozzle from the steam wand. Clean
the steam nozzle by once again using the
cleaning pin then flush under running water.
Descaling
Scale is a surface build up of minerals that
naturally occur over time in all appliances
that are involved with the heating of water.
Therefore the espresso machine will require
occasional descaling. It is recommended
that the espresso machine is descaled every
4-6 months, this will vary depending on the
frequency of use.
Descaling solution
Use any of the following when descaling the
espresso machine:
 Sunbeam Espresso Machine Descaling
Tablets
 Sunbeam Liquid Descaler, or
 Vinegar Solution.
Descaling the espresso machine
Note: Ensure the espresso machine is turned
off and the power cord is unplugged.
1. Remove the water reservoir and rinse clean.
Depending on the descaling solution being
used use one of the following:
A. Sunbeam Espresso Machine Descaling
Tablets
Fill the water reservoir with 1 litre of warm
water and place a descaling tablet into the
reservoir. Once the tablet has dissolved
replace the reservoir, this takes about 5-7
minutes.
B. Sunbeam Liquid Descaler
Fill the water reservoir with approximately
1.5 litres of water, add 1 capful of
Sunbeam Liquid Descaler and replace the
reservoir.
C. Vinegar solution
Fill the water reservoir with approximately
1.5 litres of warm water, add 3 tablespoons
of vinegar and replace the reservoir.
2. Should the filter handle be attached to
the group head remove it, rinse thoroughly
under running water and set aside.
3. Using a screwdriver unscrew the brewing
filter/shower screen from the underside of
the group head.
4. Remove and set aside the filter/screen,
washer and screw in a safe place.
Important: Be careful not to lose the filter/
screen, washer and screw once you have
disassembled the group head.
5. Using a small brush scrub in and around
the area at the brewing head, removing all
coffee granules.
6. Place a sufficiently large container under
the group head.
7. Insert the power cord into a 230-240V AC
power outlet and switch the power ‘ON’.
Press the power button once to turn the
espresso machine on.
Note: Remember if 'READY' is not displayed
on the LCD the espresso machine is adjusting
the temperature of the heating system.
Once the espresso machine is heated to
the correct temperature, the temperature
indicator line on the LCD will stop flashing
and and 'READY' will be displayed, this
indicates that the espresso machine is heated
and ready to use.
8. Turn the operating dial anticlockwise to the
espresso setting and allow half the
solution to cycle through the group head.
Important: Do not run descaling solution
through the steam wand.
Note: Depending on the size of the container
under the group head on occasion this may
need to be emptied throughout this process.
9. After half the solution has cycled through
turn the operating dial to the off position
to stop the flow and then press the
power button to turn the machine off.
