Coffee and espresso
•
•
•
•
•
•
Your fully automated coffee machine
guarantees you absolute ease of
operation, both in making coffee and
in maintenance and care.
The excellent, individual taste is
achieved by
the pre-brewing system: before the
coffee is brewed, it is first moistened to
extract its full aroma
the individually controllable amount of
water per cup, from a short espresso to
a "long" milky coffee
the individually controllable temperature at which the coffee is made
The choice between a normal or a
strong cup of coffee
the grinding texture, which can be
adjusted according to type of coffee
bean, and
last, but not least, the guaranteed
crema, that small crown of froth that
makes espresso coffee so unique for
connoisseurs
Did you know? The time the water is
in contact with the ground coffee is
considerably less for espresso coffee
than conventional filter coffee. As a
result, less bitterness is released from
the ground coffee – making espresso
coffee that much milder!

Safety Information
1
This appliance conforms to accepted
technological standards with regard to
safety, and to the Appliance Safety
Law. As the manufacturer, we nevertheless wish to familiarise you with the
following safety information.
General safety
• The coffee machine must be connected
only to a mains power current of which
the voltage, type of supply and frequency conform to the details shown
on the type plate (this can be found on
the underside of the appliance)!
• Never allow the mains lead to come
into contact with hot parts of the
appliance.
• Never use the mains lead to pull the
plug out of the mains socket!
• Do not use the coffee machine if:
– the mains lead is damaged, or
– the housing shows visible signs of
damage.
• Ensure that the coffee machine is
switched off before plugging into the
mains socket.
• This appliance is not intended for use
by people (including children) who, due
to lack of experience or knowledge, are
unable to operate it safely, or for use
by people (including children) whose
physical, sensory or mental capabilities
are reduced, unless a person responsible for them has shown them how to
use it safely, and has supervised them
initially.
Child safety
• Do not leave the coffee machine running unattended, and take special
care when children are about!
• Packaging material, e.g. plastic bags,
should not be accessible to children.
Safety in operation
• Caution! The coffee dispenser, steam
nozzle and cup rack become hot in
operation. Keep children at a safe distance!
35
822_949_344 CG6400.book Seite 36 Mittwoch, 25. Oktober 2006 12:38 12
g
• Caution! Danger of scalding when the
steam nozzle is activated! Hot water
or steam output can cause scalding.
Activate the steam nozzle only when
you are holding a container under the
nozzle.
• Do not use steam to heat inflammable
liquids!
• Only use the coffee machine with
water in the system! Fill the water tank
only with cold water. Do not use hot
water, milk or other liquids. Do not
exceed the maximum fill level of
approx. 1.8 litres.
• Do not put frozen or caramelised coffee beans in the bean container. Use
only roasted coffee beans! Remove any
foreign bodies from the coffee beans.
Failure to do this invalidates the guarantee.
• Spoon only ground coffee into the
ground coffee filler.
• Do not leave the coffee machine
switched on unnecessarily.
• Do not expose the coffee machine to
the effects ofweather.
• When using an extension lead, use only
a commercially available cable with a
conductor cross-section of at least
1.5 mm2.
• To avoid injury, people with motor system disorders should never use the
machine without an accompanying
person.
• Operate the machine only when the
drip tray, waste coffee container and
the drip grid are installed!
Safety in cleaning and care
• Follow the cleaning and descaling
instructions.
• Switch off the coffee machine and
unplug it from the mains socket before
carrying out any maintenance or
cleaning!
• Do not immerse the coffee machine in
water.
• Only clean the steam nozzle when the
machine is switched off, cold and not
under pressure!
36
• Do not clean coffee machine parts in
the dishwasher.
• Never put water in the grinder. This
would damage the grinder.
Never open or repair the coffee
machine. Faulty repairs can result in
considerable hazard to the user.
Repairs to electrical appliances must be
carried out only by qualified service
engineers.
If a repair becomes necessary, including replacement of the mains lead,
please contact
• the dealer where you bought the coffee machine, or
• the AEG/Electrolux Service Line.
If the machine is misused or incorrectly operated the manufacturer
accepts no liability for damage and
the guarantee is invalidated - likewise if the descaling program is not
carried out in accordance with these
operating instructions immediately
after the message «PLEASE DESCALE!» is displayed.

„Menu settings“, page 46.
Making coffee with beans
The following process for making coffee with beans runs completely automatically: Grinding, portioning,
pressing, pre-brewing, brewing and
ejection of the coffee grounds.
The facility to select the grinding texture and the quantity of coffee to be
ground allows you to individually set
up the coffee machine to suit your
own personal taste.
Ensure that you use only pure coffee
beans with no caramelised or aromatised additives. Do not use frozen
beans.
The appliance is preset to make coffee
with a medium cup size and a normal
strength. You can also choose a short
espresso or a long "milky" coffee.
0 To choose the required cup size, turn
the knob for "Cup size" (Fig 13). The
selected cup size will be displayed.

gram (Programming the fill level)“,
page 48.
You can also choose coffee with an
extra-mild, mild, normal, strong or
extra-strong strength.
0 To choose the required strength, turn
the knob for "Coffee strength selection" (Fig 14). The selected coffee
strength will be displayed.
0 Place one or two cups under the coffee
dispensing spouts (Fig. 15). The dispenser can be slid up or down, to
match the height of your cup/mug to
reduce heat loss and coffee splashes
(Fig. 16).
If you do not press any further keys
within a few seconds after having
changed the parameters of cup size or
coffee strength, the appliance will suggest the next step: «PRESS 1 OR 2
CUPS KEY».
0 Press the key for "1 cup"
to make
one cup, or the key for "2 cups"
to
make 2 cups.
The appliance now grinds the beans. In
the coffee-making process, the ground
coffee is first of all wetted with a small
quantity of water for pre-brewing. Following a short pause, the actual brewing process commences. The coffee is
dispensed into the cup and the display
shows in the upper line the selected
cup size, and in the lower line an
advancing progress bar with a percentage indication
«
40%».
Once the progress bar is complete, the
desired quantity of coffee has also
been dispensed. The appliance automatically stops delivering the coffee
and ejects the grounds into the waste
coffee container.
0 You can stop the delivery of coffee
prematurely at any time, by briefly
pressing the key that was previously
selected, or by turning the knob for
"Cup size" (Fig. 13) anti-clockwise
towards the "Espresso cup“ position.
0 As soon as delivery is complete, to
increase the quantity of coffee, simply
press and hold the key for "1 cup"
until the desired quantity is reached
(this operation must be performed
immediately after the the progress bar
shows 100%), or by turning the knob
for "Cup size" (Fig. 13) clockwise
towards the "Mug“ position.
After a few seconds, the appliance is
ready for use again and you can make
another coffee. The display shows the
last coffee setting that was selected.
3
If the coffee is delivered a drop at a
time or not at all, or the coffee is delivered too fast and is not creamy
enough, you should change the grinding setting; see „Setting the grinding
texture“, page 46.
3
If the message «GROUND TOO
FINE ADJUST MILL
AND TURN KNOB» is displayed, the
coffee is ground too fine. You should
change the grinding setting; see „Setting the grinding texture“, page 46.
3
If the display shows: «FILL TANK»
the water tank must be refilled or the
appliance will not make coffee. (It is
normal for there still to be some water
left in the tank when the message is
displayed).
3
If the display shows: «EMPTY
WASTE COFFEE CONTAINER»
the waste coffee container is full and
must be emptied and cleaned; see
„Emptying the waste coffee container“,
page 50. Until the waste coffee container has been cleaned, the appliance
continues to display the message and
cannot make coffee.
3
Never remove the water tank whilst
the machine is delivering coffee. If it is
removed, the appliance will not be able

When using the appliance for the first
time, at least 4-5 cups of coffee need
to be made before the appliance starts
to yield satisfactory results.
Tips for making hotter coffee
• When you turn the appliance on, if
you want to make a short coffee
(less than 60 ml), use the hot rinsethrough water to preheat the cups.
• Set a higher coffee temperature in
the corresponding menu; see „Setting the coffee temperature“,
page 47.
• If you have not dispensed coffee for
a long period of time with the
machine switched on, you should
rinse the system before dispensing
again, to pre-heat the brewing unit.
Select the rinsing function in the
corresponding menu (see „Running
the rinsing program“, page 42). Run
off the water into the underlying
drip tray, or alternatively use this
water to fill (and then empty) the
cup to be used for the coffee, so as
to pre-heat the cup.
• Unless they have been pre-heated,
do not use cups that are too thick, as
they will absorb too much heat.
• Use cups that have been pre-heated
by rinsing them with hot water or by
leaving them for at least 20 minutes
on the heated cup rack (H) with the
coffee machine on.
