PRE-HEAtING
Heating your cup or glass
A warm cup will help maintain the coffee’s
optimal temperature. Pre-heat your cup by
rinsing with hot water from the hot water
outlet and place on the cup warming tray.
Heating the portafilter and filter basket
A cold portafilter and filter basket can
reduce the extraction temperature enough
to significantly affect the quality of your
espresso. Always ensure the portafilter and
filter basket are pre-heated with hot water
from the hot water outlet before initial use.
NotE
Always wipe the filter basket and
portafilter dry before dosing with
ground coffee as moisture can
encourage ‘channeling’ where water
by-passes the ground coffee during
extraction.
tHE GRINd
When grinding coffee beans for espresso,
the grind size should be fine but not too fine.
The grind size will affect the rate at which
the water flows through the ground coffee in
the filter basket and the taste of the espresso.
If the grind is too fine (looks like
powder and feels like flour when rubbed
between fingers), the water will not flow
through the coffee even when under
pressure. The resulting espresso will be
OVER-EXTRACTED, dark in color and
bitter in flavour.
If the grind is too coarse the water will
flow through the ground coffee in the filter
basket too quickly. The resulting espresso
will be UNDER-EXTRACTED, lacking in
color and flavour.
AUtoMAtIC GRINdING,
doSING & tAMPING
š
Ensure hopper is filled with fresh coffee
beans. We recommend quality 100%
Arabica beans with a 'Roasted On' date
stamped on the bag, not a 'Best Before'
or 'Use By' date. Coffee beans are best
consumed between 10–30 days after the
'Roasted On' date. Stale coffee may pour
too quickly from the portafilter spouts
and taste bitter and watery. Never put
pre-ground coffee in the hopper.
š
Align portafilter handle with the
INSERT position on the grind outlet. Lift

and rotate to the centre position.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
š
To start the auto grind, dose & tamp
function, rotate the portafilter to
the right then gently guide back to
the centre position. Grinding will
commence.
EXtRACtING ESPRESSo
š
Place pre-warmed cup(s) beneath the
portafilter spouts and press the 1 CUP
or 2 CUP button.
š
As a guide, the espresso will start
to flow after 9–14 seconds (this includes
pre-infusion time) and should be the
consistency of warm dripping honey.
š
If the espresso starts to flow before
9 seconds, the grind is too coarse. This
is an UNDER-EXTRACTED shot. Adjust
the grind size slightly finer.
If the espresso starts to drip or flow after
14 seconds, then the grind is too fine.
This is an OVER-EXTRACTED shot.
Adjust the grind size slightly coarser.
š
When the auto grind, dose & tamp
function is complete, rotate the
portafilter handle to the INSERT
position and lower to remove.
š
š
Wipe any excess coffee from the rim of
the filter basket to ensure a proper seal
in the group head is achieved.
A great espresso is about achieving the
perfect balance between sweetness, acidity
and bitterness.
PURGING tHE GRoUP HEAd
Before placing the portafilter into the
group head, run a short flow of water
through the group head by pressing the
1 CUP button. Allow water to flow for
5 seconds, then press the 1 CUP button
again to stop the flow of water. This will
purge any ground coffee residue from
the group head and stabilize the water
temperature prior to extraction.
INSERtING tHE PoRtAFILtER
Align portafilter handle with the INSERT
position on the group head. Lift to insert
portafilter into the group head and rotate
towards the LOCK TIGHT position until
resistance is felt.
The flavour of your coffee will depend on
many factors, such as the type of coffee
beans, degree of roast, freshness, coarseness
or fineness of the grind.
Experiment by adjusting these factors
just one at a time to achieve the taste
of your preference.

tEXtURING MILK
HINtS & tIPS
The machine allows you to texture milk both
automatically and manually.
For optimum milk texturing
performance it is critical that the holes
around the steam tip are clear. Even
partially blocked holes may affect the
ability of the steam wand to produce
sufficient foam.
Always wipe the wand and tip with a
damp cloth BEFORE returning the
wand to the down position. Wiping
the wand will remove the majority of
milk and allow the automatic purge
feature to more effectively remove any
residual milk.
Automatic Hands-Free Milk texturing:
š
Set Milk Temperature: Press the
SELECT dial to toggle to the milk
temperature function, as indicated by
the flashing milk temperature. Rotate
SELECT dial to the desired milk
temperature, then press the dial to
select.
š
Set Milk Texture: Press the SELECT dial
to toggle to the milk texture function, as
indicated by the flashing milk texture
triangle. Rotate SELECT dial towards
'CAPP' for more texture or 'LATTE' for
less texture, then press the dial to select.
š
Always start with fresh cold milk.
š
Fill milk jug to below the spout position.
At a minimum, there should be enough
milk to cover the steam wand seal.
š
š
š
Tap the jug on the counter-top to
collapse any bubbles.
š
Swirl the jug to polish and re-integrate
the texture.
š
Pour milk directly into the espresso.
š
The key is to work quickly, before
the milk begins to separate.
To remove any condensed water from
the system, ensure the steam wand is
in the down position over the drip tray
then momentarily lift the steam lever.
Manual Milk texturing
Lift steam wand & insert into milk jug.
Lower steam wand, ensuring it is fully
down. The milk jug should rest on the
drip tray.
š Always start with fresh cold milk.
Auto milk texturing and auto shut-off are
disabled during manual milk texturing
mode.
š Fill milk jug to below the spout position.
š To remove any condensed water from
the system, ensure the steam wand is in
the down position over the drip tray then
momentarily lift the steam lever.
š
Press down & release steam lever to
start automatic milk texturing.
š
Steam LCD will display the temperature
of the milk as it heats.
š
Milk texturing will automatically
stop when the selected temperature
is reached.
š Insert the steam tip 1–2cm below the
surface of the milk close to the right
hand side of the jug at the 3 o’clock
position.
š
Lift & remove steam wand from the
milk jug.
š Lift the steam lever to start the flow
of steam.
š
Wipe the wand & tip with a damp cloth.
Lower steam wand to the down position
and the wand will automatically purge.
š Keep the tip just under the surface of the
milk until the milk is spinning clockwise,
producing a vortex (whirlpool effect).
31
COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
š With the milk spinning, slowly lower the
jug. This will bring the steam tip to the
surface of the milk & start to introduce
air into the milk. You may have to gently
break the surface of the milk with the tip
to get the milk spinning fast enough.
š Keep the tip at or slightly below the
surface, continuing to maintain the
vortex. Texture the milk until sufficient
volume is obtained.
š Lift the handle of the jug to lower the tip
beneath the surface, but keep the vortex
of milk spinning. Use the steam LCD
to monitor the milk temperature. We
recommend 55°C–65°C.
š Move the steam lever to the centre OFF
position BEFORE lowering the jug and
taking the tip out of the milk.
š
Wipe the wand & tip with a damp cloth.
Lower steam wand to the down position
and the wand will automatically purge.
š Tap the jug on the counter-top to
collapse any bubbles.
š Swirl the jug to polish and re-integrate

COFFEE BEAN HINTS & TIPS
š
Fresh, quality coffee beans will give
you the best possible extraction.
š
We recommend quality 100%
Arabica beans with a ‘Roasted On’
date stamped on the bag, not a
‘Best Before’ or ‘Use By’ date.
š
Coffee beans are best consumed
between 10-30 days after the
‘Roasted On’ date. Ideally only
grind directly before the extraction
to maximize flavour.
š
Buy coffee beans in small batches
to reduce the storage time.
š
Store coffee beans in a cool, dark
and dry container. Vacuum seal
if possible.

function.
š Tamping fan has been

Ensure portafilter is
rotated to the right until
the handle is past the
centre and is securely

Clean excess coffee from
the rim of the filter basket
after grinding to ensure a
proper seal in group head.

reduce the friction
required to hold the
portafilter in place whilst

extraction.
Always ensure filter
basket and portafilter
are dried thoroughly
before filling with coffee,
tamping and inserting
into the group head.
