Your Impressa F7/F8 can prepare one or two cups of crema coffee at a time. The two-step pressure brewing system – well known in commercial applications – was adapted and refined by Jura coffee specialists and is the trademark of each Jura-Capresso coffee center. This Pre-Brew Aroma-System ensures optimal coffee extraction and will finish every cup with a rich layer of "crema" – proof for perfectly pres- 3a. "CREMA COFFEE" AND PRESSURE BREWING According to the majority of coffee experts, grinding, tamping and brewing under high pressure is the ideal extracting process for maximum flavor and aroma. Your Jura-Capresso automatic coffee center will always produce espresso and coffee with a thick, foamy layer called "crema." The crema traps the fine aro9. matics and the light gaseous flavors that register on the palate. The high pressure and the short brewing time prevent the extraction of bitter oils and release less caffeine than any other brewing method. You will always make the absolute freshest and most aromatic cup of coffee. This is the reason why many European restaurants and hotels serve only fresh pressured brewed coffee. Experiment with your new machine and prepare yourself the best and most enjoyable cup of coffee! • Espresso is not a bean, it's the way the coffee is roasted and prepared. Typical US espresso roasts result in darker beans with an oily surface. European espresso roasts are medium brown with no or very little oils on the surface. Please note: Dark, oily beans: see chapter 7. 4. PLEASE, DON’T... (or you void your warranty protection): • Never pull out the drawer during the brewing process. • Never fill instant coffee into the bean container or ground coffee funnel; it can damage the brewing chamber. • Never fill flavored or sugar coated coffee beans into the bean container. • Never fill frozen beans into the bean container. If you store beans in the freezer, let them thaw 3 to 4 hours before filling them into the bean container. • Never fill anything other than coffee beans into the bean container (no chocolate, rice, nuts, spices, etc.) • Never fill anything but fresh, cold clean water into the water container, except when decalcifying (chapter 20c). • Never use mineral or carbonated water. You can use tap water, spring water, distilled water and reverse osmosis water. • Never repair or open the machine yourself. All repairs should be performed only by an authorized service center. 3b. DIFFERENT COFFEE DRINKS Here are some guidelines for the most popular coffee drinks: • Ristretto: 1/2 to 1 oz. of coffee. Sweeten to taste • Espresso: 1 to 2 oz. coffee. Sweeten to taste • Double Shot: 3 to 4 oz. of coffee. Sweeten to taste • Crema Coffee: 5 to 8 oz. of coffee • Cappuccino: Espresso plus 3 to 4 oz. of hot frothed milk. • Latte: Espresso plus 3-5 oz. steamed milk with little or no froth. • Café Mocha: Make Espresso then add chocolate syrup to the milk before frothing/steaming. Experiment with the size of your milk based drinks. For stronger coffee taste add more coffee, for more milk taste add more frothed milk. 3c. COFFEE FACTS • Caffeine is tasteless. A "strong" coffee or espresso is mostly the result of the amount of coffee in relation to the amount of water. The longer a bean is roasted, the less caffeine it has. • Arabica and Robusta are two genetically different kinds of beans. "Arabica" beans have more flavor and a little less caffeine than "Robusta" beans which are mostly used in lower priced coffees and instant coffees. PLEASE, DO... • Fill water tank with fresh, cold water only. • Remove any foreign particles (small stones) from coffee beans. • Let frozen beans thaw 3 to 4 hours before pouring them into the bean container. 10. All Display Messages Are Shown in RED • Turn the machine on by pressing the ON/OFF button (Fig. 3c). The display shows FILL WATER. (If you have already filled the water tank, the message OPEN TAP will be displayed). • Remove water tank, fill with fresh, cold water and replace. The display shows OPEN TAP. The following procedure is only necessary when setting up the machine for the first time and after the procedure "Emptying System Before Transport" (chapter 19f). • Place a cup underneath the frother (Fig. 13) and turn the Steam/Water Selector to the Steam / Water symbol Fig. 4b). SYSTEM FILLING. The machine will pump some water through the frother and stop automatically. CLOSE TAP. Turn the Steam/Water Selector back to the cup symbol. SYSTEM FILLING. HEATING. PRESS RINSE. Place a cup underneath the Coffee Spout (Fig. 12) and press the Rinse Button (Fig. 3g.) The machine will pump a bit of hot water through the coffee spouts and will stop automatically. READY. You can only brew coffee when the display shows READY. • Open the bean container lid (Fig. 1, 9) and fill with beans (Fig. 5). For details see chapter 7. • Place an empty cup (at least 8 oz.) under the coffee spouts. • Push the Dial (Fig. 3a). The Dial illuminates and the display shows the cup size 4 OZ. • Push and hold the 1-Cup button until the display reads STRONG. The F7/F8 starts grinding and will start brewing. Initially, the chamber may not fill properly with ground coffee. The machine will start brewing, then interrupt and the display will show FILL BEANS. Push the 1-Cup button again. Discard the first 2 cups of coffee. Your next cup will be perfect. Please note: If coffee only comes out of one spout, move the 5. FACTORY SETTINGS Each machine leaves the factory with the following settings: Filter ..................... – (not installed) Hardness Level .... 2 Aroma ................... ROBUST Temperature .......... HIGH Time ...................... Not Set Unit On ................. Not Set Auto Off ................ 2 HRS Cups Made ……… – Language .............

CUP ILLUMINATION (Fig. 12a) The cup illumination adds a dramatic touch to brewing coffee. Providing the machine is plugged in, you can activate the cup illumination for 1 minute by pressing any button. 6. PREPARING THE MACHINE FOR THE FIRST TIME • Make sure all accessories, literature and any other items are removed from the machine and the water tank. • Make sure the Clearyl Water Filter is NOT installed! • Make sure the machine sits on an even, flat surface and the drawer, tray and used coffee container are inserted (Fig 2). • Plug-in machine. 11. spout up and down a few times to clear the internal flow. You are now ready to make coffee. – The smaller the dots, the finer the grind. – The bigger the dots, the coarser the grind. Important: The grinding grade can only be adjusted while the grinder is actually grinding. 7. ADDING COFFEE BEANS • Open the bean container lid (Fig. 1, 9), fill with beans (Fig. 5). The container holds approx. 220 grams (8 oz.). Close the lid. Frozen Beans: Thaw 3 to 4 hours before adding to bean container. This prevents moisture from seeping into the grinder. 9. DAILY PREPARATION ON/OFF Button – HEATING – RINSE – READY We recommend filling the water container every morning with fresh, cold water. This will enhance the taste of your coffee. • Push and hold On/Off button until the display turns on. If your machine is cold the display shows HEATING. After approx. 2 minutes the display shows RINSE. • Press the Rinse Button (Fig. 3g). Hot water will warm up all internal parts and pump through the coffee spouts. The water will be caught in the drawer underneath. The rinse cycle stops by itself and the display reads: READY. You are now ready to make coffee. Flavored / Sugar Coated Beans: DO NOT fill these type beans into the bean container. The sugars will stick to the burrs and clog the flow of ground coffee. Have your local coffee store grind these type beans and use as described in chapter 11. Using Oily Beans: Beans with an oily surface tend to stick together. This may prevent a continuous flow of beans from the bean container into the burrs. As a result the grinder does not grind enough coffee and you might get weak or no coffee at all. Stir the beans in the bean container just before grinding. Alternatively, you can also pour the beans in an open bowl and let them sit for about 5 hours. The oils will evaporate (this will not change the taste of your coffee). Then fill the beans into the bean grinder. Now beans will feed into the burrs more easily. 10. GRINDING AND BREWING The Impressa F7/F8 uses a 2-step brewing process (Pre-Brew Aroma System). First, it moistens the ground coffee (pre-brew phase), pauses for a few seconds, and then starts the brewing process. • Adjust the height of the coffee spout to your cup size (Fig. 12) and place one or two cups underneath the coffee spouts. 8. ADJUSTING THE GRINDER You can adjust the grinder to the roast of your coffee. We recommend the following: Light roast: use a finer adjustment. Dark roast: use a coarser adjustment. • Open the lid of the bean container. • While the grinder is running turn the grind selector switch to the desired position (Fig. 6). HOTTER COFFEE? Pre-warm cup with hot water through frother. See chapter 12 "Using Hot Water". Empty cup and brew coffee. 10a. SELECTING CUP SIZE AND STRENGTH Cup Size 1 OZ. to 8 OZ; max: 16 oz. • Push the Dial. It will illuminate and the display will show the cup size in oz, e.g. 4 OZ. 12. • Turn the dial to select any cup size between 1 OZ. and 8 OZ. Your machine will always remember the last setting. After a few seconds the display will change back to READY. • When using the 2-Cup button the machine will automatically double the selected amount of coffee. Coffee Strength MILD – NORMAL - STRONG Push the 1-Cup button once, the display shows: MILD, twice: NORMAL, three times: STRONG. Grinding times (approx.) MILD .......... 6 to 7 seconds. NORMAL ... 7.5 to 8.5 seconds. STRONG..... 9 to 10 seconds. grinding, brewing, or discarding the used coffee. Always wait until the display shows READY. 11. USING PRE-GROUND COFFEE You can also use pre-ground coffee, bypassing the grinder. This comes in handy if someone requests decaf, sugar coated or flavored coffee. • Open the lid for the ground coffee funnel (Fig. 1.8). The display shows FILL POWDER. Fill the funnel with one or two scoops of ground coffee. Important: Do NOT fill this funnel with instant coffee and do not use more than two level scoops of coffee. • Close the funnel lid. The F7/F8 will tamp the ground coffee. SELECT CUP BUTTON. • Push the 1-Cup or 2-Cup button. The display shows the cup size. As long as the Dial (Fig. 3a) is illuminated, you can still change the cup size. Please note: If you accidentally open the funnel lid, just close it again. The display shows NOT ENOUGH POWDER and then returns to READY. Please note: After use of sugar coated or flavored coffee through the pre-ground coffee funnel you may experience some flavor transfer when switching back to your regular coffee. • Push the Rinse Button (Fig. 3g) The display shows RINSING. The F7/F8 performs a rinse cycle and returns to READY. AROMA-setting "STANDARD" has the shorter grinding times. AROMA-setting "ROBUST" has the longer grinding times. When using the 2-Cup button the grinder will always grind between 9 and 10 seconds. For AROMA setting see chapter 18a. Please note: When using the 1-Cup button, the display will first show the strength setting. When the pre-brew cycle starts, it will show the actual cup size. At this time you can still change the cup size by turning the Dial. When using the 2-Cup button, the display will first show 2 CUPS. When the pre-brew cycle starts, the display shows the cup size for one cup. At this time you can still change the cupsize by turning the Dial. Please note: After the pre-brew cycle you can always stop the brewing process by pushing the 1-Cup or 2-Cup button. This will not affect your cup size setting for the next brew cycle. Important: Never try to pull out the tray while the machine is 12. USING HOT WATER READY – 1 OZ. to 16 OZ. – CLOSE TAP - READY This feature allows you to pre-warm your cup, make a cup of tea or soup or add hot water to your coffee making it weaker. 13. • Place a cup underneath the frother (Fig. 13). • Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol (Fig. 4b). Hot water will push through the frother. The display shows the amount of hot water. You can change it from 1 to 16 oz. by turning the Dial (Fig. 3a). The machine remembers the last setting. When the water flow stops, display shows CLOSE TAP. • Turn the Steam/Water Selector back to the cup symbol. READY. Please note: You can always stop the flow of hot water by turning the dial to the cup symbol. steam will be injected into the milk. The display shows how long steam will be forced through the frother, 60 SEC. • At this time you can change the steam output from 3 and 120 seconds. The machine will remember your last setting. When the selected steam time is up, the display shows CLOSE TAP. • Turn the Selector to the cup symbol (Fig. 4a). Please note: You can always stop the steam output by turning the Steam/Water Selector to the cup symbol. Please note: When you stop the steam output the display will show READY. If you want to repeat the steam function, first push the steam button (Fig. 3h). Since the Thermoblock is still very hot, STEAM READY will appear instantly. If you do not push the steam button first, the F7/F8 will start pumping hot water through the frother. 13. FROTHING and STEAMING The steam function can be used to heat up any liquid and to steam and froth milk. Steaming Position: The Frother's metal cylinder is in the UP position (Fig. 16). In the steaming position hot steam is injected into the milk (or any other liquid) without creating a frothy layer on top. Typically a Latte has steamed milk with no froth. Frothing Position: The Frother's metal cylinder is in the DOWN position (Fig. 16). In the frothing position hot steam and air is injected into the milk creating warm milk and a firm layer of tiny froth bubbles. Please note: When you start steaming, some hot water will push out of the nozzle before the steam begins. When frothing a lot of milk this will not change the taste of your frothed milk. You can also release this small amount of hot water into the tray or into a separate container as follows: • Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the Water Symbol for one second and then back to the Cup symbol. Now push the steam button (3h) and start frothing/steaming. 14. HEATING AND FROTHING MILK READY – HEATING - STEAM READY - 60 SEC - CLOSE TAP • Push the Steam button (Fig. 3h). Display shows HEATING. • Add cold milk to a pitcher or a cup. • After 15 to 30 seconds the display shows STEAM READY. • Immerse the tip of the frother into the milk (Fig. 17, 18) and turn the Selector to the Steam/Water Symbol (Fig. 4b). Hot Tips for frothing (Cappuccino): The tip of the frother should not touch the bottom of your pitcher. Start in the steaming position – cylinder "up" (Fig. 16) – for a few seconds. Then push the cylinder "down". Milk froth will build up. This way the froth on top of your milk is also warm. Hotter milk? If the frothed milk is not warm enough, continue in the steaming position. 14. Steaming and frothing directly in your cappuccino cup: With practice, you can steam and froth directly in your cappuccino cup. First steam and froth the milk, then add your espresso shot. Cleaning the Steam Nozzle (Fig. 15c) • Place a cup underneath the Steam Nozzle (the Dual Frother is off) and let a bit of hot water run through the Steam Nozzle. Tip: If the steam nozzle is blocked by hardened milk, use a needle, toothpick or paper clip and loosen up the milk deposit. Then let some hot water pass through the Steam Nozzle. Please note: The less fat content the milk has the more froth will be created. Skim milk will produce the most froth and will let you taste more of the coffee. 1% and 2% milk will give you less froth. Regular whole milk (3% fat) will produce the least amount of froth. You can also use soy milk. Assembly of Frother Parts • Make sure the Steam Nozzle is screwed onto the Metal Tube (Fig. 15a) finger tight. • Assemble the Dual Frother and make sure that the tip is screwed onto the Connector finger tight (Fig 14a, c). • Push the black Clip-on Connector (Fig.14c) firmly into the steam nozzle (the connector should sit flush with the chrome sleeve (Fig. 15b) so that the steam nozzle is no longer visible). Please note: If the parts are not connected tightly it will not be possible to create the frothy foam on top of the milk. 15. CLEANING THE DUAL FROTHER PLUS Always keep the Dual Frother Plus clean and free of milk deposits. Clean immediately after use. Hardened milk particles will make it impossible to create milk froth. Fast cleaning: Display shows READY. Place a cup underneath the frother (Fig. 13) and turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol. Let hot water run through the frother for about 3 seconds and then stop. This will flush out any small milk droplets. 16. CLEARYL WATER FILTER CARTRIDGE The machine comes with one Water Filter Cartridge. This cartridge is specially made for use with the F7/F8. The cartridge: • Reduces the water hardness up to 75%. • Removes (if present) up to 85% chlorine, up to 90% lead, up to 95% copper and up to 67% aluminum. • Cleans the water through an upward current principle (Fig. 8) just before the brewing cycle starts, ensuring freshly filtered water every time you make coffee. • Eliminates decalcifying. When using the water filter cartridge, you never need to decalcify your machine. • To reorder cartridges see chapter 22 "Supplies". Thorough cleaning of the Dual Frother parts: • Remove the Dual Frother (Fig.14) from the Steam Nozzle (Fig. 15c). Please note: The Dual Frother is tightly connected to the Steam Nozzle. First loosen the Clip-On Connector part (Fig. 14c) by turning it a few times, then push down to remove. • Unscrew the black tip (Fig.14a) from the Clip-On Connector (Fig. 14c). You can use a coin to loosen the black tip. • Soak all three parts in hot soapy water. • Make sure that the two side holes and the channel of the black tip (Fig. 14a) are free of any milk deposits. 15. 16a. INSTALLING & ACTIVATING THE CLEARYL WATER CARTRIDGE Important: Never install the cartridge before or during "Preparing Machine For The First Time." • Make sure the water tank is empty. • Remove cartridge from its bag and rinse cartridge under water. • Open water container lid and pull up the holder for the cartridge (Fig.9). • Insert the cartridge with its tapered end down into the water container. Make sure it fits securely inside the fins. Push down gently (Fig.10). • Close the holder for the cartridge so that it engages in the water tank (Fig.11). • Fill the water tank with fresh cold water and replace. You must activate the cartridge as follows: 1. Push and hold the P button (Fig. 3e). FILTER – 2. Push the Dial and the display shows NO 3. Turn the Dial until the display shows YES 4. Push Dial confirm. The display shows INSERT / OPEN TAP 5. Place a 20 oz. container underneath the frother. 6. Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol. FILTER RINSING. For the next 90 seconds the machine will push water through the filter and through the frother. Do not interrupt this process. This activates the filter. The machine will stop automatically. 7. CLOSE TAP. Turn the Water/Steam Dial back to the cup symbol. HEATING. READY. Please note: As long as the filter is activated, the water hardness setting is automatically turned off. IMPORTANT: Do not let the filter dry out. If you do not use your IMPRESSA for more than three days in a row and you still have an active filter, we recommend the following easy procedure: Empty the water tank, remove the filter and immerse it at least to a third of its length into a cup with cold water. Store the cup in the refrigerator. This way the filter does not dry out. When you use your machine again, install the filter. Use the hot water cycle and let approx. 16 oz. of water run through the system. Initially the water may be slightly discolored 16b. REPLACING THE CLEARYL WATER CARTRIDGE The filter is monitored automatically. After approx. 75 liters of water (~2,500 oz.), the filter loses its effect. The display changes from READY to CHG FILTER / READY. You can still make coffee, but we recommend replacing the filter within one week! Attention: The filter should be changed every 3 months if you use less than 75 liters of water. In this case, no message will appear in the display. Important: Once the filter has lost its calcium suppressing abilities, calcium will build up inside the machine. Since the Water Hardness Selector is off, the machine will not remind you when to decalcify. This could clog and ruin your machine. • Remove the old filter. The cartridge is environmentally friendly. Dispose it with your regular household trash. • Make sure the water tank is empty. • Remove the new cartridge from its bag. • Open the water container lid and pull up the holder for the cartridge (Fig. 9). • Insert the cartridge with its tapered end down. Make sure it fits securely over the white mesh piece inside the water 16. container. Push down gently (Fig.10). • Close the holder for the cartridge so that it engages in the water tank (Fig.11). • Fill the water tank with fresh cold water and replace. 1. Turn machine off. Push and hold the Rinse Button until the display shows CHG FILTER / OPEN TAP. 2. Place a 20 oz. container underneath the frother. 3. Turn the Steam/Water Selector to the water symbol. FILTER RINSING.

Important: If you choose the selection "–" the water hardness monitor is turned off and the machine will NOT remind you when it is time to decalcify. Turning off the monitor requires you to either use distilled water or the Water Filter Cartridge (chapter 16a). 17. ADJUSTING THE WATER HARDNESS Over time, heated water inside the machine leads to calcium deposit build-up, unless you use the Clearyl Water Filter. The display will remind you when it is time to perform a decalcifying cycle. The machine is set to level 2 (medium hard water). If you have harder water you need to set it to a higher level. If you have softer water you can set it to level 1. If you are not sure about the hardness of your water, ask your local water company for the "Water Hardness in Grains." Level 1: grains 2-9 • Level 2: grains 10-19 • Level 3: grains 20-29 Level 4: grains 30+ You can also use the enclosed water hardness indicator strip to determine the water hardness: • Insert the stick for one second into the water you want to use.

TIPS FOR BETTER COFFEE Height adjustable coffee-spout Adjust the height of the coffee-spout to the size of your cups. Grinding Please refer to chapter 8 "Adjusting the Grinder." Hotter Coffee / Pre-warm cups You should warm cups in advance with hot water or steam. The smaller the quantity of coffee, the more important it is to warm your cups (see page 12). Hotter Cream and Milk Adding milk or cream from the refrigerator considerably lowers the temperature of the coffee. Preheat milk and cream with the steam function then brew your coffee (see page 14). 22. SUPPLIES AND ACCESSORIES The following supplies are necessary to keep your machine in good working order: • Clearyl Water Filter Cartridge (model# 64533) • Special Cleaning Tablets (model# 62205) • Decalcifying Tablets (white, square) model# 61848 Please note: You must use decalcifying tablets if you do not use the Clearyl cartridge. 22. All supplies are available through: • The enclosed mail order form that came with your machine • Our toll free line at 1-800-220-5701 or • The Internet at www.capresso.com. until the blocked coffee is pushed into the used coffee container. B. THE DISPLAY READS "FILL WATER" BUT THERE IS ENOUGH WATER IN THE WATER TANK. Reason: The low water floatation device (Fig. 7.4) is missing. Solution: Within the water tank is a small compartment (like a mouse trap). Inside is a small black floatation device. On top is a small clear see-through plastic cover. This small plastic cover is missing and the floatation device is outside of the small compartment. Check if you can locate both pieces and put it back together. If you cannot find them, call 1-800-220-5701. We will send the pieces to you FREE OF CHARGE. 23. FROTHXPRESS SYSTEM This system and the Cappuccino Cleaner Liquid are included with the F8 (sold separately for the F7). If you prepare many cappuccinos or lattes at a time, this system is faster and easier to use than the Dual Frother. It will automatically fill cup after cup with your preferred amount of hot steamed and frothed milk, without wasting any milk. See the separate instructions included in the frothXpress box. C. INSUFFICIENT FROTHED MILK PRODUCTION Reason: Milk is initially not cold enough or your milk is not suited for thick frothing. Solution: Make sure milk is cold. Use a different type of milk. Skim milk will produce the thickest and longest lasting froth. Whole milk will produce less thick froth. See chapter 14. Reason: The components of the frother are not assembled properly, or the components are clogged with hardened milk, or one or more of the components is missing, or the steam nozzle is clogged. Solution: (See chapter 15) a. Remove frother. Check that steam comes out of the steam nozzle. If not, use a needle and clear blockage from inside steam nozzle. b. Clean all other frother parts and assemble properly. c. If any parts are missing either call Customer Service at: 1-800-220-5701 or use the enclosed mail order form to order the missing part. 24. TROUBLESHOOTING A. NO COFFEE COMES OUT OF THE COFFEE SPOUT Reason: Beans in bean container are not properly feeding into the grinder because they are stuck together. Solution: Stir beans before grinding and while grinding turn the grinding selector to the coarsest setting. See chapter 7. Reason : You used ground coffee in the ground coffee funnel. The ground coffee was too fine. Solution: Use ground coffee which is ground somewhat coarser. Reason : No water is transported through the system. Solution: Remove water container and make sure that the connecting valve is free of any particles (like a coffee bean etc). Reason: The ground coffee funnel or the internal brewing chamber is clogged. Solution: Place a cup underneath the coffee spout. Push the Rinse button (Fig. 3g). RINSING. Repeat the process if necessary 23. D. GRINDER MAKES AN EXTREMELY LOUD NOISE; NO BEANS ARE GROUND Reason: A stone is blocking the burr grinder. Solution: Call customer service at: 1-800-220-5701.
