OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE PRODUCT
BEFORE FIRST USE
•
Machine Preparation
Insert the filter into the two parts of the
filter holder.
Remove and discard all labels and packaging
materials attached to your espresso machine.
Ensure you have removed all parts and
accessories before discarding the packaging.
Remove the water tank located at the back of
the machine by pulling down the water tank
handle. Remove the plastic bag containing the
water filter and water filter holder. Clean parts
and accessories (water tank, portafilter, filter
basket, jug) using warm water and a gentle dish
washing liquid. Rinse well then dry thoroughly.
Place filter into
filter holder
•
To install the assembled filter holder into
the water tank, align the base of the filter
holder with the adapter inside the water
tank. Push down to lock into place.
•
Fill the water tank with cold water before
sliding back into position at the back of the
machine and locking into place.
TIP
To easily manoeuvre your machine, use
the drop down swivel foot located under
the drip tray. When turned to UNLOCK,
the swivel foot drops down and lifts the
machine upwards, making it easier to
access the removable water tank or
reposition the machine to another
location.
INSTALLING THE WATER FILTER
•
Remove the water filter and water filter
holder from the plastic bag.
•
Soak the filter in a cup of water for
5 minutes then rinse under cold
running water.
•
Wash the filter holder with cold water,
taking specific care to rinse the
stainless steel mesh.
NOTE
DO NOT use highly filtered,
demineralised or distilled water in this
machine. This may affect the taste of the
coffee and how the machine operates.
NOTE
Soak filter for 5 minutes
Rinse filter & mesh
To purchase water filters, visit
www.breville.com.au or call Breville
Customer Service Centre.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE PRODUCT
FIRST USE
1. Ensure tank is filled with cold water.
You can do this by either opening the
top-fill water tank lid (push to open), or
by removing the water tank at the back
of the machine.
2. Press POWER button to turn the
machine on.
3. The main LCD will display 'Hrd3',
prompting you to set the water
hardness level. Programming this
will determine the regularity of the
'DESCALE' and 'CHANGE FILTER'
alerts.
Setting Water Hardness
• Remove the supplied water hardness test strip from the wrapper.
•
Dip the test strip into a sample
of the water you have filled the
tank with. Wait for one minute.
The water hardness setting is
indicated by the number of red
squares displayed on the test strip eg. 3 red squares indicates
a water hardness setting of 3.
•
Rotate SELECT dial to the required setting from 'Hrd1' (softest water)
to 'Hrd5' (hardest water). Press SELECT dial to set. Machine will beep once to confirm selection.
NOTE
If your water hardness is either 4 or 5
when tested, we strongly recommend
you change to an alternate water source.
Filtered, bottled spring or mineral water
will extend both the life of your built-in
filter and descale intervals as well as
superior taste. Please ensure to test the
water hardness of the alternative water
source you've chosen and input into the
machine accordingly. Avoid using overly
filtered water, like RO water unless some
mineral content is being added back to
the final water. Never use distilled water,
or water with no or low mineral content
as this will affect both the taste the
functioning of your machine.
4. A pumping/vibrating sound will be
heard indicating empty boilers are
being filled with water for the first
time. The main LCD will display the
current boiler temperature and flash
'HEATING'.
5. After approximately 5 minutes,
the machine will reach the default
operating temperature 93˚C and all
6 buttons will illuminate. The machine
is now in STANDBY mode, ready for
the next step, 'Flushing The Machine'.

operating temperature (STANDBY mode).
The machine will beep 3 times if one of
these functions is selected.
TIP
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 5–20 days after the 'Roasted On'
date. Stale coffee may pour too quickly
from the portafilter spouts and taste bitter
and watery.
SELECTING GRIND SIZE
There are 45 espresso grind size settings
(No. 1 – finest, No. 45 – coarsest) to enable
you to select the right grind size for your
coffee beans and achieve the perfect
espresso extraction.
To select grind size, rotate the grind size
dial counter-clockwise to increase grind
coarseness or clockwise to increase grind
fineness.
We recommend you start at No. 30 and adjust
as required to control espresso flow rate.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
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.
The resulting espresso will be OVER
EXTRACTED, dark in colour 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 colour
and flavour.
AUTOMATIC GRINDING,
DOSING & TAMPING
•
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 5–20 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.
•
Align portafilter handle with the INSERT
position on the grind outlet. Lift to insert
portafilter into the grind outlet and rotate
to the centre position.
NOTE
Always wipe the filter basket and
portafilter dry before dosing with
ground coffee as moisture can
encourage ‘channelling’ 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.
NOTE
When switching between the 1 Cup &
2 Cup Filter Baskets, you may need to
adjust the Grind Size to fine tune your
extraction.
GRIND OUTLET
GROUP HEAD
GRIND OUTLET
CENTRE
POSITION
•
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.
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.
24
BES980_ANZ_IB_N16.indd 24
14/09/2016 8:56 am
COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
•
When the auto grind, dose & tamp function
is complete, rotate the portafilter handle to
the INSERT position and lower to remove.
•
Wipe any excess coffee from the rim
of the filter basket to ensure a proper seal
in the group head is achieved..
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 stabilise the water
temperature prior to extraction.
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.

INSERTING THE PORTAFILTER
Align portafilter handle with the INSERT

towards the LOCK TIGHT position until
resistance is felt.
EXTRACTING ESPRESSO
•
Place pre-warmed cup(s) beneath the
portafilter spouts and press the 1 CUP
or 2 CUP button.
•
As a guide, the espresso will start
to flow after 7–12 seconds (this includes
pre-infusion time) and should be the
consistency of warm dripping honey.
•
If the espresso starts to flow before
7 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
12 seconds, then the grind is too fine. This
is an OVER EXTRACTED shot. Adjust the
grind size slightly coarser.
A great espresso is about achieving the perfect
balance between sweetness, acidity and
bitterness.
HINTS & TIPS
If machine is run continuously for
30 minutes, allow machine to cool for
3 minutes before each use.
TEXTURING MILK
The machine allows you to texture milk both
automatically and manually.
Automatic Hands-Free Milk Texturing:
•

the desired milk temperature, then press
the dial to select.
•
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.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS & PREPARATION
•
Always start with fresh cold milk.
•
•
Fill milk jug to below the spout position.
At a minimum, there should be enough
milk to cover the steam wand seal.
Tap the jug on the counter-top to collapse
any bubbles.
•
Swirl the jug to polish and re-integrate
the texture.
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.
•
Pour milk directly into the espresso.
•
The key is to work quickly, before
the milk begins to separate.
Lift steam wand and insert into milk jug.
Lower steam wand, ensuring it is fully
down. The milk jug should rest on the
drip tray.
Manual Milk Texturing
•
Press down and release steam lever to
start automatic milk texturing.
• Fill milk jug to below the spout position.
•
Steam LCD will display the temperature
of the milk as it heats.
•
Milk texturing will automatically
stop when the selected temperature
is reached.
•
Lift and remove steam wand from the
milk jug.
•
Wipe the wand and tip with a damp
cloth. Lower steam wand to the down
position and the wand will automatically
purge.
•
•
HINTS & TIPS
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.
Auto milk texturing and auto shut-off are
disabled during manual milk texturing mode.
• Always start with fresh cold milk.
• 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.
• 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.
• Lift the steam lever to start the flow
of steam.
• Keep the tip just under the surface of the
milk until the milk is spinning clockwise,
producing a vortex (whirlpool effect).
• With the milk spinning, slowly lower the
jug. This will bring the steam tip to the
surface of the milk and 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.
• Keep the tip at or slightly below the
surface, continuing to maintain the
vortex. Texture the milk until sufficient
volume is obtained.
• 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.
• Move the steam lever to the centre OFF
position BEFORE lowering the jug and
taking the tip out of the milk.

COFFEE BEAN HINTS & TIPS
•
Fresh, quality coffee beans will give
you the best possible extraction.
•
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
5-20 days after the ‘Roasted On’ date.
Ideally only grind directly before the
extraction to maximise flavour.
•
Buy coffee beans in small batches
to reduce the storage time.
•
Store coffee beans in a cool, dark
and dry container. Vacuum seal
if possible.

PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
WHAT TO DO
Grinder running
continuously
• No beans in hopper.
• Fill hopper with beans.
• Rotate the portafilter
to the left to stop the
auto grind, dose & tamp
function.
• Tamping fan has been
removed.
• Check that the tamping
fan is in position and
mounted correctly to
the drive shaft, page 29.
• Portafilter not inserted in
the group head correctly.
Ensure portafilter is rotated
to the right until the handle
is past the centre and is
securely locked in place.
Rotating past the centre
will not damage the silicone
seal.
• There are coffee grounds
around the filter basket rim.
Clean excess coffee from
the rim of the filter basket
after grinding to ensure a
proper seal in group head.
• Filter basket rim is wet or
underside of portafilter
lugs are wet. Wet surfaces
reduce the friction required
to hold the portafilter in
place whilst under pressure
during an extraction.
Always ensure filter basket
and portafilter are dried
thoroughly before filling
with coffee, tamping and
inserting into the group
head.
Issues with the Auto Start
feature
• Clock not set or clock is set
with incorrect time.
Check that the clock and
Auto Start time have been
programmed correctly. The
LCD will display a clock
icon when the Auto Start
time is programmed.
