Read the instructions and keep them safe. Pass them on if you pass the coffee maker on.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you know the coffee maker works.
important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 This coffee maker must only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult. Use
and store it out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put the coffee maker in liquid, don’t use it in a bathroom, near water, or
outdoors.
3 Don’t touch hot surfaces (e.g. carafe, hotplate).
4 The scald hazard lasts long after boiling. Keep the coffee maker and cable away from the
edges of worktops and out of reach of children.
5 Sit the coffee maker on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface.
6 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.
7 Unplug the coffee maker when not in use, before moving and before cleaning.
8 Fill with at least 2 cups of water, but don’t fill above max.
9 There’s a hole in the rear wall of the reservoir, to prevent overfilling.
10 Put the carafe on the hotplate before switching the coffee maker on.
11 Let the coffee maker cool for about 10 minutes before adding water or re–using, to avoid
spitting.
12 Don’t put the carafe in a microwave oven.
13 Don’t try to adjust the metal band round the carafe, you’ll break the glass.
14 Keep the coffee maker and the cable away from hotplates, hobs or burners.
15 Don’t use accessories or attachments other than those we supply.
16 Don’t use the coffee maker for any purpose other than those described in these instructions.
17 Don’t connect the coffee maker to an external timer or remote control system.
18 Don’t use the coffee maker if it’s damaged or malfunctions.
19 If the cable is damaged, return the coffee maker, to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
1 Fill the reservoir to max, and run the coffee maker without coffee.
2 Let it cool, discard the water, then use it normally.
coffee beans
3 If you use whole roasted coffee beans, we suggest you use one level tablespoon of beans per
cup.
ground coffee
4 If you use ready-ground coffee, medium-ground filter coffee will give you the best results.
The amount will vary with the type of coffee and your individual taste. We suggest starting
with two rounded teaspoons of medium-ground coffee per cup.
storing coffee
5 Coffee is best kept in an airtight container in a cool dry place, or in the fridge. Exposure to air
oxidises coffee and allows the flavour to evaporate.
milk
6 There’s a great deal of contention on the subject of milk in coffee. Our view is that personal
taste should rule, not convention. If you like milk in your coffee, use warm or hot milk, to
avoid overcooling the coffee. To extract maximum flavour from the coffee, it should be cool
enough not to scald or burn the mouth, but hot enough to let the flavour fill the mouth, nose
and sinuses, not just the taste buds.
3
bottled water
7 If you use bottled water, check that there are no added ingredients, flavourings, etc., and use
“still” water, not “sparkling”. The carbon dioxide which gives the “sparkle” will adversely affect
the flavour of your coffee.
taste
8 Don’t be tempted to reheat coffee in the coffee maker. You’ll damage the coffee maker and
the coffee will be undrinkable.
9 Clean the filter holder, filter, and carafe after each use. Residue from a previous brew will spoil
your coffee.
preparation
10 Sit the coffee maker on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface.
11 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang, and can’t be tripped over or caught.

13 Remove the carafe from the hotplate – do this before you open the coffee maker lid.
14 Press and release the front of the coffee maker lid, to unlock it, then lift it up, to expose the
reservoir.
15 Press the lever at the rear of the carafe lid, above the handle, to open it.
16 Use the carafe to fill the reservoir, to avoid overfilling.
17 Fill the reservoir with at least 2 cups of water, but not above max.
18 There’s a hole in the rear wall of the reservoir, to prevent overfilling.
filling – ground coffee
, If you’re using whole beans, jump to point 23.
19 Lift the filter holder lid out of the coffee maker, and put filter-ground coffee into the filter.
20 The amount will vary with the type of coffee and individual taste, but we suggest two
rounded teaspoons per cup.
21 Replace the filter holder lid, and check that the end of the water pipe fits into the pipe on top
of the coffee maker
22 Jump to point 27.
filling – coffee beans
23 Lift the lid off the coffee mill, and put fresh roasted coffee beans into the mill.
24 The amount will vary with the type of coffee and individual taste, but we suggest one level
tablespoon per cup.
25 Replace the lid on the coffee mill.
26 The mill will grind the beans when brewing is activated.
water bypass valve
27 This adjusts the amount of water bypassing the filter, to control over-extraction of unwanted
flavours from the coffee in the filter.
28 Turn it towards + to increase, or towards - to reduce the amount of water bypassing the filter.
close the lid
29 Close the lid of the coffee maker, and press down the front to lock it closed.
30 Close the carafe lid.
31 Sit the carafe on the hotplate, with the spout pointing into the coffee maker.
32 You’ll feel resistance as the carafe lid raises the non-drip valve on the bottom of the filter
holder,
33 Don’t put the carafe on the hotplate unless the coffee maker lid is closed – you may push the
non-drip valve (and the filter holder) up and out of place.

switching off
50 The hotplate will keep the carafe warm for up to 3 hours 59 minutes.
51 After this “keep warm” period, the coffee maker will switch itself off.
52 If left for much more than an hour, chemical changes in the coffee liquor start to affect the
flavour. It’s best to pour it away and make a fresh pot.
53 To interrupt the brewing process, or terminate the “keep warm” period manually, press and
release the [ button.
54 The [ light will go out.
55 Let the coffee maker and carafe cool down fully before cleaning, or for about 10 minutes
before refilling.
caution Raising the lid before the coffee maker has cooled down may release steam, creating
a scald hazard.
a quick cup
56 If you want a quick cup of coffee before the brewing cycle has finished:
57 You can remove the carafe at any time. The non-drip valve will prevent coffee dripping on to
the hotplate.
58 To prevent the filter holder overflowing, replace the carafe on the hotplate within about 20
seconds. This may not sound much, but you’ll find it’s more than enough time to pour a
couple of cups of coffee.
59 When you replace the carafe on the hotplate, the non-drip valve opens, to let any remaining
coffee through.
1-4 function
60 If you’ve filled the reservoir, but you only want 4 cups, press and release the 1-4 button
before starting to brew.
61 The coffee maker will brew only 4 cups, then stop, and the “keep warm” function won’t be
activated.
“keep warm” time
62 The default “keep warm” time is 2 hours. You may change this to a maximum of 3 hours and
59 minutes. It’s quite complex, so we suggest you leave it at the default time.
63 Put 2 cups of water into the reservoir.
64 Put the carafe on the hotplate, as water will run through the coffee maker while you’re
setting the keep warm time.
65 Set the time (point 43 on page 5), otherwise the display will flash while you’re working.
66 If the Y light is out, press and release the Y button till the Y light glows.
a) press and release the Z button till a dot shows on the display above 9

descale now! H
67 If the heating tube becomes blocked, the H light will glow.
68 Don’t use the coffee maker again till it’s been descaled.
69 Fill the reservoir with descaling solution.
70 Close the lid, and put the carafe on the hotplate.
71 Press and release the H button.
72 The H light will go out, the [ light will glow, and the coffee maker will clean itself.
73 After descaling, run the coffee maker through two complete cycles with clean, fresh water, to
remove any residual detergent.
74 Don’t wait till the H light glows before descaling – descale regularly to keep your coffee
maker in good working condition.
care and maintenance
1 Unplug the coffee maker and let it cool down before cleaning or storing away.
2 Tip the contents of the filter into the bin – don’t flush coffee grounds down the sink. They’ll
build up and cause a blockage.
3 You may clean the removable parts (including the carafe) in warm soapy water, then rinse
thoroughly.
4 Alternatively, you may wash them in the top tray of a dishwasher (but only in the top tray).
5 Clean the surfaces of the coffee maker with a damp cloth.
6 Don’t put the coffee maker in water or any other liquid.
7 Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
descaling
8 Scale build-up will cause the element to overheat, reducing its working life. It will also
lengthen the brewing time.
9 Descale regularly. If you notice the brewing time getting longer, shorten the time between
descalings. In areas of very hard water it may be necessary to descale as often as once a
month, or to use filtered water instead of ordinary tap water.
10 Use a proprietary brand of descaler suitable for use in plastic-bodied products. Follow the
instructions on the package of descaler. When descaling has finished, empty the carafe and
operate the coffee maker twice more with fresh water, but without coffee. Discard the water
to ensure that no chemical residues are left in the coffee maker.
, Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a repair charge.
