INSTALLATION AND START UP
CARAT CAPSULE
Water connection
Connecting the machine to the domestic water supply must be performed by a qualified person.
Purge at least 20 liters of water from the domestic water supply before connecting the machine to it to flush out
any debris that may be in the plumbing system that would otherwise accumulate inside the boilers.
The domestic plumbing system should be fitted with a brass 3/8” NPT male pipe fitting and an in-line
shut-off valve. Connect the 180cm water inlet hose included with the machine to the domestic water
supply and tighten the line fittings with a wrench to 15 ft. lbs. / 20N-m.
Only use safe drinking water with a hardness rating between 5ºfH and 8ºfH (French hardness
degrees) or 20 to 32 ppm (parts per million of calcium). If the hardness value is below this limit,
corrosion of hydraulic components is likely. If the value is higher, lime-scaling inside the boiler will
occur. In both cases, the proper function of the machine and quality and taste of the coffee will be
negatively affected.
If necessary, connect the machine to a water softener to reduce water hardness using the flexible 55cm
hose included in the accessory box.
Connect one end of the corrugated drain tube to the drain cup in the machine, connect the other
end to the plumbing drainage system in the installation area.
Important:
Only use the hoses supplied with the machine. Never reuse damaged hoses.
Ensure that the drainage tube is not twisted and that it is below the level of the drain cup.
Water filtration
Ensure that a water filtration device or system is installed in-line in the domestic water supply ahead
the machine to prevent contamination inside the machine’s hydraulic system.

2. Press the Continuous Brewing Button for 8 seconds, all the lights in the keypad will light up and Continuous button will flash.
3. Within 30 seconds press the drink button (1 Short Espresso or 1 Long Espresso) to be reprogrammed. All of the button lights will turn off except for the Continuous button and the drink button being reprogrammed. Within a few seconds espresso will begin dispensing.
4. Allow the espresso to dispense until the desired drink volume is reached, then press the drink button that is being reprogrammed again to stop the flow. This dosage time will now be stored as the default for that drink button.
5. Repeat Steps 1-4 for all drink buttons to be reprogrammed.
Pro Tip:
Always use a new capsule for every new brewing dosage that is programmed to
guarantee accurate brewing time and flow speed.

Note:
Programming any of the options on the left-side bank of drink buttons (when
viewing the machine from the front/dispensing side) automatically reprograms the
corresponding drink buttons for the right-side brewing group also. If you want to
create specific dosages for each groups drink buttons always program the left-side
buttons first, then program the right-side drink buttons afterward.
For safety and water conservation, all brewing settings have a maximum dispensing time
of 5 minutes.
