prime the pump. Make sure the appliance is also on a level surface and near
a sink making it easier to discard water.
Ensure the plug is not attached to the mains supply
Remove the lid and gently lift the water
reservoir at the back of the unit by
lifting it up and off the unit (refer to Fig
Always make sure that the water level
never drops below the minimum mark.

Then empty the container and also the drip try, the espresso machine is now
fully ready to use.
To maximise the taste and het the correct
temperature of an espresso it is important that the
machine is pre-heated. Before using the appliance
for the first time it is important to fill the water
reservoir to the maximum mark and re-insert it
ensuring it is securely in place.
Please note that the water level should never
exceed the maximum mark
The water level must never drop below the
minimum mark
Ensure that the steam knob is in the OFF position
Preparing a single shot (1 cup) of espresso
Put the 1-cup filter basket into a Portafilter.
Then add a singular full tamping/ measuring spoon
(close to 5 full teaspoons) of fresh espressoground coffee to the groove as illustrated in Fig 4
into the 1 cup filter basket. For an enhanced
coffee flavour compress the ground coffee further
into the 1 cup basket.
Always ensure the filter basket is properly seated in the Portafilter.
Preparing a double shot (2 cups) of espresso
Put the 2 cup filter basket into the Portafilter
Then add a double full tamping/ measuring spoon
( close to 10 full teaspoons) of fresh espressoground coffee to the groove as illustrated in Fig 4
into the 1 cup filter basket. For an enhanced coffee
flavour compress the ground coffee further into the 1 cup basket.
Always ensure the filter basket is properly seated in the Portafilter

fashion until it is under the lock icon on the
side of the espresso spout.
The portafilter will then fit tightly into the machine, when fitted correctly it
will be flat against the machine with the handle perfectly centred at the
front of the espresso maker
To eliminate the risks of buns and burning water spillages ensure that the filter
basket is fitted correctly and that the full portafilter is inserted properly in the
espresso maker.
Never touch the portafilter immediately after use, always allow it too cool
thoroughly before touching the appliance to avoid burning fingers or hands from
the rising steam.
Brewing process

Always unplug and allow the machine to cool after use and before cleaning.
After each use wash the portafilter and filter basket in warm soapy water,
rinse and dry after each use.
Preparing cappuccino
A traditional cappuccino normally consists of 1 part espresso and 2 parts milk with
frothy milk resting on the top, to achieve optimal results always use fresh cold milk.
Additional ingredients can be used to customise your cappuccino for example
cinnamon and cocoa sprinkles can be added to add extra depths or flavour your
For the best results please follow these instructions:
Fill up the stainless steel frothing mug with cold, fresh milk till its 1/3 full
(add a small amount of ice-cubes if preferable).
Switch the espresso machine on using the ON/OFF button and turn the
steam knob to the setting “Heat”. Once the appliance is sufficiently heated
the ON/OFF light will become steady. This function is to pre-heat the steam
wand and also reduce excess water that will come out of the steam wand. Be
aware that water may shoot out of the steam wand once its pre-heated.
The ON/OFF sign will stop flashing when its ready to create steam.
Once this has occurred turn the steam knob to “Heat”.
Lift the frothing mug towards the steam wand at a slight angle ensuring that
the tip of the wand stays just under the surface of the milk, continuously
rotate the mug in a circular motion, this will heat the milk.
Take caution when frothing the milk as the mug will become heated, it is
advised that you hold it by the handle or wear oven gloves.
Start creating froth by lowering the mug so that the tip of the froth wand is
just below the surface of the milk. Once a sufficient amount of froth has
been created turn the selector control to the OFF function and remove the
Before proceeding wait until the steam wand produces no further steam.
This allows extra steam to leave the wand whilst cleaning of it of excess milk.
The frothing mug should now hold the consistency of half milk (resting at the
bottom of the jug) with the top half containing the foam.
Pour an equal ratio of foam to milk in the cup of cappuccino . The milk
should predominately come first whilst the foam can be spooned onto the
Cleaning & storing the appliance
Begin the cleaning process by turning the portafilter until the handle faces
the unlocked position, this is visible as the portafilter will visually drop down
and out of the appliance.
Empty the filter basket of used coffee, in some cases it is advisable to use a
kitchen brush to clean the filter basket of excess used coffee granules. A pin
may also be used to dispense of clogged holes on either the filter basket or
the steam wand.
Ensure that both the portafilter and filter basket (s) are thoroughly cleaned
with warm water and correctly dried after every use.
After every use empty the drip tray of water, clean and dry with a clean
cloth. Then replace it with the clean drip plate.
Before storing, wipe down the outside of the espresso maker and the steam
wand with a damp cloth drying thoroughly afterwards.
Do not use solvents or detergents that may damage the surface of the machine.
Also be aware that several parts of the machine i.e. pour spout, filter basket,
portafilter and the tamping/ measuring spoon are not dishwasher safe.
Overtime an accumulation of minerals and calcium can affect the performance of
the espresso maker. It is therefore vital that after approximately every 300 cups of
coffee the espresso maker is cleaned and distilled in vinegar. To descale your
espresso maker you should adhere to the following guidelines:
As with previous cleaning instructions make sure that the appliance is
unplugged from the mains.
Mix approximately two tablespoons of vinegar to 1 litre of water, then pour
the solution into the water reservoir.
Do not attach the portafilter to the espresso maker instead simply place a
container on the drip tray under the espresso spout.
To start the machine press the ON/OFF button, the light will then begin to
Simultaneously press the 1 cup and the 2 cup button at the same time and
ensure you hold them down for three seconds. The espresso maker will then
begin to heat automatically.
Once the ON/OFF button stops flashing allow the vinegar/water mixture to
sit for a further 15 minutes.
Additionally press the 2-cup button to continue the brewing process until the
reservoir is empty. This ensures full descaling
Rinse the reservoir to remove all excess calcium and solution. Fill it with
clean water and replace.
The repeat steps 4 through to 6, this allowing clean water to flow through
the espresso maker.
Rinse the water reservoir , fill it with clean water and replace it to its original
As seen in Fig 2 turn the steam knob to heat, this will cause the ON/OFF
button to flash.
Fill the frothing mug 1/3 full using the pouring spout, then 1/2 full with fresh
clean water and leave it to one side.
Once the ON/OFF button stops flashing the espresso maker is ready to
produce steam.
Proceed to turn the knob to steam.
Hold the frothing mug by the handle and bring it up towards the steam
wand. Insert the steam wand just below the surface of the water. Once the
water produced by the steam wand looks clean turn the steam wand to the
off position.
Electrical information
Please note:
It is extremely important that the wires or cores in the flex are connected to the
correct terminals in the plug. If the colour of the mains lead of the appliance does
not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug
proceed as follows:
The Live (Brown) wire
connects to the right- most
live (L) terminal nearest to
the fuse.
The Neutral (Blue) wire
connects to the left-most
neutral (N) terminal.
The Earth (Green and
Yellow) wire connects to the
central, top most earthed (E)
If the appliance is double insulated indicated by the double insulated symbol:
it should not have an earth wire or earth connection.
The plug must be protected by the correct AMP fuse; this will be indicated on the
case of the plug. Only BSI or ASTA approved fuses should be used. When changing
the fuse always replace it with a fuse that is of the same identical rating as the
original. If you are unsure about which plug or fuse to use, always refer to a
qualified electrician.
Please note after replacing the fuse, ensure that the cover is correctly fitted back
onto the plug. Never attempt to run the appliance if the plug does not have a cover.
If a moulded plug is fitted and has to be removed take great care in disposing of the
plug and severed cable, it must be destroyed to prevent it from engaging into a
socket. If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by a service agent or a
similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
