Automatic switch-off
To save energy, the appliance will switch
itself off automatically about 5 minutes after
the brewing cycle is complete.
Aroma function
To obtain a stronger coffee flavour, the
appliance is equipped with a special aroma
function. With this setting, the hot water is
released at intervals. This is especially useful
when preparing smaller quantities of coffee.
To select this function, press the On/Off
switch for about 2 seconds until the indicator
light begins to flash.
Before using for the first time
Before making coffee for the first time,
let the appliance go through two or three
filtration cycles using the indicated maximum
amount of cold water, but without using
ground coffee. This should also be done
if the appliance has not been used for an
extended period of time, and after descaling.
General information
∙ A measuring scale on the water container
facilitates filling the container with the
correct amount of clean water. With
a dual-scale, the left scale is used for
regular-sized cups of approx.125ml, while
the right scale is used for smaller cups.
Make sure that the indicated maximum
amount of water is not exceeded.
∙ Caution: Do not attempt to open the
swing-out filter while brewing is in
progress: there is a danger of scalding.
∙ If several consecutive brewing cycles
are required, switch off the coffee maker
after each cycle and let the appliance cool
down for approx. 5 minutes.
∙ Important note: When filling the
appliance with fresh water shortly after
a brewing cycle is completed, there is
a danger of scalding from hot water or
steam escaping through the water outlet.
Making coffee
∙ Filling with water:
Open the water container lid, fill the
container with the required quantity of water
and close the lid again.
∙ Inserting the paper filter:
Open the swing-out filter and fit the filter
insert, folding down the handle so that it is
properly locked. Insert a size-4 paper filter,
first folding down the perforated sides of
the filter.
∙ Filling with ground coffee:
For each regular-sized cup (125 ml), a
measure of about 6 g (= 1½ - 2 teaspoons)
of medium or finely ground coffee will be
∙ Preparing the glass carafe:
FFit the drip-through lid onto the carafe,
turning it clockwise to lock it, and place
the carafe into the appliance. If correctly
inserted, the lid will disable the drip-stop
mechanism in the swing-out filter during the
brewing cycle.
∙ Starting the brewing cycle:
Insert the plug into a suitable wall outlet
and press the On/Off switch briefly to switch
the coffee maker on. To select the aroma
function, keep the On/Off switch pressed
for about 2 seconds until the indicator light
begins to flash. The filtration cycle starts and
the water passes through the filter.
∙ Removing the glass carafe:
Wait until all the water has passed through
the filter before the carafe is removed from
the appliance.
∙ Switching off the coffee maker:
Always switch off the appliance after use and
remove the plug from the wall socket.
Drip-through lid
During the filtering process and while
pouring the coffee out, the drip-through lid
does not need to be removed and should
remain on the jug. Press the lid-opening
lever to pour the coffee.
Heat-retaining carafe
∙ For technical reasons the lid does not
close hermetically. Therefore always hold
the carafe in an upright position when
filled with coffee.
∙ Keeping the coffee hot: A heat-retaining
carafe accumulates heat energy.
Therefore the carafe should preferably be
filled to its maximum capacity. If it is only
partly filled, the temperature will not
be held as efficiently. If you rinse out
the carafe with hot water before use, the
coffee will be kept warm for a longer time.
∙ To prevent the risk of scalding, do
not leave the heat-retaining carafe
unattended near where children may
reach it.
∙ Therefore, do not drink out of the carafe
and do not put your hand into it.
∙ Always close the carafe with its lid.
The coffee can be poured out easily by
pressing the lid-opening lever.
∙ Do not wash the heat-retaining carafe
in a dishwasher and do not put it in a
microwave oven.
∙ Depending on the water quality (lime
content) in your area as well as the
frequency of use, all thermal household
appliances using hot water need
descaling (i.e. removal of lime deposits)
on a regular basis to warrant proper
∙ Any warranty claim will be null and
void if the appliance malfunctions
because of insufficient descaling.
∙ A lengthening of the brewing time and
increased noise during brewing indicate
that descaling of the coffee maker has
become necessary.
∙ An excessive build-up of lime deposits is
very difficult to remove, even when strong
descaling agents are used. It may also
cause the brewing system to leak. We
therefore strongly recommend descaling
the appliance after each thirty to forty
brewing cycles. For descaling, a vinegar
solution may be used as follows:
Mix 80 ml of vinegar essence with the
indicated maximum amount of cold water.
Pour the descaling solution into the water
container, insert a paper filter into the
filter holder without adding any ground
coffee as described in section Making
coffee, and let the appliance run through
one filtration cycle. Repeat the procedure
if necessary. During descaling, ensure
sufficient ventilation and do not inhale any
vinegar vapours.
To clean the appliance after descaling, let
it run through 2-3 filtration cycles using
clean water only.
Do not pour descalers down enamel
Cleaning and care
∙ Before cleaning the appliance, ensure it is
disconnected from the power supply and

∙ To remove the used ground coffee,
open the swing-out filter and lift out the
filter insert by its handle. Dispose of the
coffee grounds (as a natural substance
the coffee grounds may be composted).
Rinse out the filter insert and replace it,
folding down its handle so that the filter
insert is properly locked. Close the swingout filter.
∙ Do not dismantle the carafe, do not wash
in a dishwasher and do not immerse it in
∙ Rinse the inside of the carafe with water
and wipe the outside with a clean damp
cloth after use.
∙ To remove any coffee deposits from
the inside of the heat-retaining carafe,
fill it with hot water and add a teaspoon
of dishwasher detergent. Close with
the lid and leave it standing for some
hours. Rinse out thoroughly with water
∙ To clean the drip-through lid, turn it anticlockwise to unlock, take it off and clean
it with hot soapy water; rinse thoroughly
with fresh water afterwards.
