STEP 4 – PRIMING THE BREW HEAD

• Before placing the Filter Holder into position,

it is recommended to run a short flow of
water through the Brew Head.

• Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’

position and plug the power cord into a
230/240V power outlet and switch on. Press
the Power On/Off button and the button
surround will illuminate. When the machine
has reached the correct temperature the
Steam button surround will also illuminate.

• The machine will make a pumping noise then

the Heating Light will flash red. When the
correct temperature has been reached the
light will go out. The heating light will cycle
on and off while the machine is on in order
to maintain the correct temperature. 

• Place a container or empty cup under the

Brew Head.

• With the filter holder removed, prime the

Brew Head by turning the Selector Control to
the ‘Espresso’ position momentarily. A
pumping noise will be heard in this operation.

STEP 5 - PRE-WARMING THE CUPS
• The Cup Warming Plate will start to warm as

the machine heats.

• Pre-warm the espresso cups by placing on the

Cup Warming Plate. This will help maintain
the coffee’s optimal temperature when brewed
into the cups.

STEP 6 – INSERTING THE FILTER HOLDER
• Place the Filter Holder underneath the Brew

Head so that the handle is aligned with the
insert graphic. Insert the Filter Holder up into
the Brew Head and rotate the handle to the
right until resistance is felt, this will be at an
approximate 90° angle to the machine.

STEP 2 - PREPARING THE COFFEE
• Place the 1 or 2 cup filter into the Filter

Holder (use the smaller filter for 1 cup and
the larger filter for 2 cups). Or for producing a
larger extraction for a mug of coffee always
use the 2 cup filter and only extract 60ml.
Should you require a larger coffee, add the
hot water first and then extract the coffee.

• When using a 1 cup filter holder, for optimum

flavour, you should only extract approximately
30ml. When using a 2 cup filter holder, for
optimum flavour, you should only extract
approximately 60ml.

• Use 1 level measure of ground espresso coffee

for the 1 cup filter and 2 level measures for
the 2 cup filter. It is important to use the
correct amount of coffee for each Filter as the
filter perforations have been constructed to
utilise the pressure in the machine to extract
optimal flavour with each brewing. (Refer to
The Grind on Page 21).

STEP 3 - TAMPING THE COFFEE

• Distribute the coffee evenly in the Filter and

press down lightly with the tamping end of
the measuring spoon (Refer to Coffee Making
Tips on Page 21).

• Clean any excess coffee from the rim of the

Filter holder to ensure a proper fit into the
Brew Head.
