FEATURES OF YOUR BREVILLE PROFESSIONAL 800 COLLECTION™ PROGRAMMABLE ESPRESSO MACHINE
Programmable Function
White Zone - Ideal Espresso
Hot Water Wand
This espresso machine offers a convenient
choice between the Manual Operation or the
intelligent Programmable Function that can be
personalised with the user’s favourite espresso
setting.
The gauge needle when positioned within the
recommended White Zone during pouring
indicates that the espresso will be produced at
the ideal pressure. The brewed espresso should
have a generous layer of fine textured and
evenly coloured golden crèma.
The dedicated hot water wand is ideal for
making your favourite hot drinks. For convenient
use the wand has a commercial style 360° ball
joint.
Green Zone - Under Extracted
Espresso Pressure Gauge
The espresso pressure gauge assists in
obtaining the most favourable extraction
pressure, guiding the user to create their ideal
espresso. This is achieved by measuring the
pressure at which the water is being forced
through the ground coffee in the filter holder.
The gauge needle when positioned within the
Green Zone during pouring indicates that the
espresso will be produced with insufficient
pressure resulting in an ‘under extracted’
espresso. This occurs when the water flow
through the ground coffee in the filter is too
fast. As a result the optimal flavour will not be
extracted and the coffee will be watery and lack
thick créma on the top. Possible other causes
for under extraction are: coffee grind is too
coarse and/or insufficient coffee in filter and/or
under tamping.
Red Zone - Over Extracted
The gauge needle when positioned within
the Red Zone during pouring will indicate
that the espresso will be produced with too
much pressure resulting in an ‘over extracted’
espresso. This occurs when the water flow
through the ground coffee in the filter is too
slow. As a result the coffee will be very dark
and bitter, with a mottled and uneven créma on
top. Possible other causes for over extraction
are: ground coffee is too fine and/or too much
ground coffee in filter and/or over tamping.

FEATURES OF YOUR BREVILLE PROFESSIONAL 800 COLLECTION™ PROGRAMMABLE ESPRESSO MACHINE (continued)
Commercial Style Steam Wand
The swivel-action steam wand, with
stainless steel frothing attachment, easily
adjusts to the perfect position for texturing
milk. The wand has a commercial style
360° ball joint.
Advanced Dual Wall Créma System
Filters
Advanced Dual Wall Créma System Filters
(one and two cup) are supplied with the
Breville Professional 800 Collection™
Programmable Espresso Machine.
The Advanced Dual Wall Créma System
Filters are designed to intentionally
slow the water flow rate during brewing,
allowing you to easily pour your espresso
at the ideal pressure, for the perfect
créma.
The filters are suited to both pre-ground
vacuum packed coffee and freshly ground
coffee.
Electronic Temperature Control
The electronic temperature control system
accurately maintains the optimal brewing
temperature of the water. This helps
ensure the user gets the best possible
extraction each time an espresso is made.
The ‘Power Save Mode’ uses 45% less
power than when the machine is in
‘Stand by’ Mode.
During ‘Power Save Mode’ only the
POWER button surround will be
illuminated. All other button and light
surrounds will not be illuminated.
To re-activate the machine during ‘Power
Save Mode’, simply press the program or
one-cup or two-cup buttons. The POWER
button surround will then illuminate and
flash while the machine quickly reheats to
operational temperature. When the correct
temperature has been reached, all the
button surrounds on the control panel
will illuminate.
To switch off the espresso machine whilst
it is in ‘Power Save Mode’, simply press
the POWER button once.
Energy Saving Features
The Breville Professional 800 Collection™
Programmable Espresso Machine will
enter the ‘Power Save Mode’ if not used
for one hour, and will automatically switch
off if not used for a further three hours.

machine if not used regularly.
To refit the frothing attachment ensure it is
securely attached to the steam wand by
inserting it, from either opening, onto the
steam wand and pushing firmly upwards
onto the rubber surround. Ensure the fine
steam holes on either end of the frothing
attachment are clean to achieve optimal
texturing.
• Press the POWER button to ‘On’.
• The first step in making a cappuccino
or latté is to make a short espresso.
Refer to ‘Operating your Espresso
Machine’, pages 14-16.
The Breville Professional 800 Collection™
Programmable Espresso Machine comes
complete with a Commercial Style Swivel
Steam Wand and Stainless Steel Frothing
Attachment. When using the frothing
attachment on the steam wand a large
amount of froth is easily created.
If less texture is required, remove the
frothing attachment from the steam wand
and steam the milk using the steam
wand. To remove the frothing attachment,
ensure it is cool then simply pull down
and remove. The frothing attachment can
• Then fill the stainless steel frothing jug
1
⁄3 full with cold, fresh milk.
• Turn the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’
position. The white steam light will start
to flash indicating that the Thermoblock
Heating System is heating and preparing
to create steam.
• For improved results, purge the steam
wand of water before placing into the
milk.
NOTE: When the espresso machine
creates steam, a pumping noise
can be heard. This is the normal
operation of the 15 Bar pump.
• When the steam light stops flashing,
quickly insert the steam wand into the
jug of milk so that the froth attachment is
just immersed into the milk.
NOTE: If steam starts coming from the
steam wand before it is immersed
in the milk, pause the steam by
turning the Selector Control back
to the ‘Standby’ position. This will
avoid the steam pressure blowing
milk out of the jug.
19
BES820 IB V6.indd 19
19/9/07 2:23:53 PM
HOW TO TEXTURE MILK FOR A CAPPUCCINO OR LATTÉ
• When the milk starts to increase in
volume, immerse the steam wand and/
or frothing attachment deeper into the
jug to heat the milk.
• Hold the jug at an angle with one hand
and place your other hand on the outer
base of the stainless frothing jug.
• Hold the frothing jug at an angle so
that steam wand and/or the frothing
attachment sits just below the surface of
the heating milk and the steam will move
the milk around the inside of the jug in a
circular motion.
NOTE: The espresso machine features
a swivel steam wand assembly so
the position of the steam wand can
be changed to a comfortable angle.
• When the base of the jug becomes too
hot to touch, set the Selector Control
to the ‘Standby’ position, stopping
the steaming function before
removing the jug. A pumping noise will
sound for a short time, do not be
alarmed as there will be a five second
delay prior to the machine carrying out
the Auto-purge function.
• Pour the steamed milk into each cup of
freshly brewed espresso coffee and
spoon in the frothing milk, in the
following ratios:
Cappuccino - 1⁄3 espresso, 1⁄3 steamed milk,
1
⁄3 frothed milk
Latté - 1⁄3 espresso topped with steamed milk
and approximately 1cm frothed milk, traditionally
served in a glass.
WARNING: MILK SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN OVER THE TOP OF THE FROTHING
ATTACHMENT, OTHERWISE IT WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY. TO AVOID
SPLATTERING OF HOT MILK, DO NOT LIFT THE END OF THE FROTHING ATTACHMENT
ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE MILK WHILE FROTHING. ENSURE THE SELECTOR
CONTROL IS IN THE ‘STANDBY’ POSITION BEFORE REMOVING THE FROTHING JUG.
NOTE: After 5 minutes of continuous
steaming, the machine will
automatically disable the steam
function. The steam and hot water
lights will flash. When this occurs
return the selector control to the
‘Standby’ position.
NOTE: Always ensure that the frothing
attachment has been firmly pushed
onto the steam wand and connects
with the rubber surround. For best
results use cold fresh milk (low
fat milk will froth easier). Always
clean the steam wand and frothing
attachment after every use. Refer
to ‘Care and Cleaning’, page 24.
NOTE: For brewing more coffee
immediately after using the steam
function, this machine features an
auto-purge function. This ensures
that ground coffee will not be burnt
by the initial water flow from the
thermoblock being too hot. Instead
this water is automatically released
internally into the drip tray ensuring
that the internal thermostat is at
optimal temperature for extracting
coffee. Your coffee will always
be extracted at this optimal
temperature ensuring only the best
flavoured coffee is achieved.

19/9/07 2:23:54 PM
USING THE HOT WATER FUNCTION
The espresso machine features a separate
hot water function that can be used for
making tea, hot chocolate and other warm
drinks. The hot water is dispensed from
the dedicated Hot Water Wand.
Place a jug or cup underneath the Hot
Water Wand to collect the hot water.
To use the hot water function, turn the
Selector Control to HOT WATER. The hot
water light will illuminate when selected.
To turn the hot water off, turn the Selector
Control to the ‘Standby’ position.
Limit the extraction of hot water to 2 litres
each use.
The machine is not designed to make
large pots of coffee and tea. The more hot
water used at the one time, the cooler it
becomes.
NOTE: After 2 minutes of continued hot
water use, the machine will
automatically disable the hot water
function. The steam and hot water
lights will flash. When this occurs
return the selector to the ‘Standby’
position.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS
WARMING YOUR CUP OR GLASS
A warm cup will help maintain the coffee’s
optimal temperature. Preheat your cup by
storing on the cup warming tray or rinsing
with hot water from the hot water wand.
WARMING THE FILTER HOLDER
A cold filter holder can drop the extraction
temperature enough to significantly affect
the quality of your coffee. Always ensure
the filter holder is preheated by running
hot water through it before tamping it with
coffee.
NOTE: Always wipe the filter and filter
holder dry before tamping with
ground coffee as moisture can
encourage ‘drilling’ - this is when
water bypasses the ground coffee
during extraction.
THE GRIND
If using a pre-ground coffee, ensure an
espresso grind suitable for espresso/
cappuccino machines is purchased.
If grinding coffee beans, the grind should
be fine but not too fine or powdery. The
grind will effect the rate at which the water
flows through the coffee in the filter and
therefore the taste of the coffee.

resulting coffee will be over extracted, too
dark and bitter, with a mottled and uneven
créma on top.
If the grind is too coarse the water will flow
through the coffee too quickly. This will
result in an under-extracted coffee lacking
in flavour and without the thick créma on
the top layer of coffee.
THE RIGHT MEASUREMENT
A single espresso is made with ¼ ounce or
7g of coffee. A level measure of the tamp/
spoon is the correct amount of coffee for a
single espresso and 2 level measures for a
double espresso. It is important to use the
correct filter for the amount of coffee.
TAMPING CORRECTLY
Level the desired amount of coffee by
gently tapping the side of the filter holder
before pressing down firmly with the
tamping end of the measuring spoon.
When packing for a double espresso it is
important only to tamp after the second
measure. Tamping between measures
will create a layer in the coffee that can
impede full extraction.
PURGE THE GROUP HEAD
Before inserting the filter holder, run
some water through the group head. It
will ensure that your machine has a last
minute ‘clean through’ and stabilises the
temperature prior to extracting.
NOTE: Make sure to wipe off any excess
coffee from the rim of the filter to
ensure a proper seal is achieved
under the group head.
BREWING YOUR ESPRESSO
The most common mistake in brewing is
to over extract from your ground coffee.
This results in a bitter beverage with visibly
bleached crèma. Crèma is the caramel
coloured layer that floats on top of the
coffee following extraction.
NOTE: The taste of your coffee will, of
course, depend on personal
preference and on many other
factors such as the type of coffee
bean used, the coarseness or
fineness of the grind and the
tamping pressure (pressed down).
We recommend experimenting by
varying these factors to achieve the
coffee taste of your preference.

CARE AND CLEANING
CLEANING THE STEAM WAND AND
FROTHING ATTACHMENT
• The steam wand and frothing
attachment should always be cleaned
after frothing milk
• Remove the frothing attachment and
rinse in warm tap water. Ensure the
two fine steam holes on either end of
the frothing attachment are clear. Use
the pin on the cleaning tool to unblock
these holes.
• Wipe the steam wand with a damp
cloth, and then with the steam wand
directed back into the drip tray, briefly
set the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’
position. This will clear any remaining
milk from inside the steam wand.
• Ensure the Selector Control is in the
‘Standby’ position. Press the POWER
button to off, switch off at the power
outlet, unplug the power cord and allow
the machine to cool.
• If the Steam Wand remains blocked, use
the pin on the cleaning tool to clear the
opening.
• If the steam wand continues to be
blocked, the tip of the steam wand can
be removed by using the spanner in the
middle of the cleaning tool.
• Soak the tip in hot water before using
the pin on the cleaning tool to unblock.
Replace the tip back onto the steam
wand and secure with the cleaning tool.
CLEANING THE FILTERS, FILTER HOLDER
AND GROUP HEAD
• The stainless steel filters and filter holder
should be rinsed under water directly
after use to remove all coffee particles.
Should the fine holes in the filters
become blocked, the fine pin on the
cleaning tool can be used to clear the
holes.
• The group head interior should be wiped
with a damp cloth to remove any ground
coffee particles.
• Periodically run water through the
machine with the filter holder in place,
but without any ground coffee, to rinse
out any residual coffee particles.

CARE AND CLEANING (continued)
CLEANING THE OUTER HOUSING / CUP
WARMING PLATE
• The outer housing and cup warming
plate can be cleaned with a soft, damp
cloth. Then polish with a soft, dry cloth.
Do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or
cloths which can scratch the surface.
CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY
CLEANING THE STORAGE TRAY
• The drip tray should be removed,
emptied and cleaned at regular intervals,
particularly when the drip tray full
indicator is showing ‘Empty Me!’.
• The storage tray can be removed after
the drip tray is removed then cleaned
with a soft, damp cloth (do not use
abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which
can scratch the surface).
• Remove the stainless steel grid and
‘Empty Me!’ indicator from the drip tray,
wash with warm soapy water, using a
non-abrasive washing liquid, rinse and
dry thoroughly. The ‘Empty Me!’
indicator can be removed from the drip
tray by inserting fingers into two holes in
the corners and pulling upwards to
release the side latches.
NOTE: Do not clean any of the parts or
accessories in the dishwasher.

CARE AND CLEANING (continued)
DECALCIFYING
DECALCIFYING THE MACHINE
• After regular use, hard water can cause
mineral build up in and on many of the
inner functioning components, reducing
the brewing flow, power of the machine,
and affecting the quality of coffee.
• Ensure the Selector Control is in the
‘Standby’ position, the POWER button
is in the ‘Off’ position and the machine
is switched off at the power outlet and
unplugged.
• We advise decalcifying the machine on
a regular basis (every 2-3 months) using
a mixture of white vinegar and water.
Follow the instructions provided, or use
the following as a guide:
• Remove the filter holder and frothing
attachment. Pour the mixture of white
vinegar and water into the water tank.
• Plug the machine into the power outlet
and switch on.
Diluted solution (for softer water)
• 1 part white vinegar
• 2 parts cold tap water
Concentrated solution (for harder water)
• 1 part white vinegar
• 1 part cold tap water
• Press the POWER button to the ‘On’
position and turn the Selector Control to
the ‘Standby’ position.
• Place a large container under the group
head, steam wand and hot water wand.
• When the brewing temperature has
been reached all the button surrounds
on the Control Panel will illuminate.
Press and hold the single or double
cup button to commence manual pour.
Release the button once half the mixture
of white vinegar and water has run
through the group head.
• Set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’
position and allow steam to run through
the Steam Wand for approximately 2
minutes. Return the Selector Control
back to the ‘Standby’ position.
• Set the Selector Control to the ‘HOT
WATER’ position and allow the
remaining liquid to run through the hot
water wand. When the liquid stops
flowing, set the Selector Control back to
‘Standby’ position.
• After decalcifying, remove the water tank
and rinse thoroughly then re-fill with
fresh cold water. To rinse the machine,
repeat previous steps.
WARNING: DO NOT IMMERSE CORD, PLUG OR APPLIANCE IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.
THE WATER TANK SHOULD NEVER BE REMOVED OR COMPLETELY EMPTIED DURING
DECALCIFYING.
