OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE ESPRESSO/CAPPUCCINO MAKER

BEFORE USING YOUR ESPRESSO/CAPPUCCINO MAKER

Wash the filter holder, stainless filters and frothing jug in mild detergent and water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

It is recommended to carry out a complete brewing operation with cold water but without any coffee before making your first espresso or cappuccino (see Brewing Coffee). By doing so, any residual dust left inside the Espresso/Cappuccino Maker will be removed.

PRE-WARMINGCUPS

For optimal coffee temperature, use the cup warming plate on top of the appliance to pre-warmthe cups. Thecup-warmingplate will be heating whenever the appliance is switched on at power outlet.

Ensure the Pressure Indicator Button on the Water Tank Cap has dropped down and is flush with the top of the cap.

Unscrew the water tank cap and pour cold water into the tank. Fill to 5mm below the visible water pipes (Fig 1). Do not fill to the top of the tank or there will not be enough area to generate steam.

Screw the water tank cap back on top of the water tank, making sure it is secured firmly before operating the appliance.

HOW TO MAKE AN ESPRESSO

Filling the water tank

Switch the power off at the power outlet and remove the plug.

Ensure the Brew/Steam selector control is in the ‘STANDBY’ position. The ‘STANDBY’ position is located on the centre of the selector control.

Do not use warm or hot

water to fill the water tank.

DO NOT POUR WATER INTO THE WATER TANK WHILE THE SELECTOR

 

CONTROL IS IN THE BREW OR STEAM POSITION.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE ESPRESSO/CAPPUCCINO MAKER

HOW TO FROTH MILK FOR A CAPPUCCINO OR LATTÉ

A cappuccino is an espresso topped with steamed and frothed milk (13 espresso,

13 steamed milk,13 frothed milk), traditionally served luke warm in a cup.

A latte is an espresso topped with steamed and frothed milk (13 espresso, topped with steamed milk and about 10cm of frothed milk), traditionally served in a glass wrapped with a serviette.

The first step in making a cappuccino/latte is to make a short espresso (Follow steps in ‘How to make an Espresso’).

Fill the frothing jug 1/3 full with cold milk (skim milk is the easiest to froth).

Hold the frothing jug below the froth enhancer. Immerse the froth enhancer 10mm into the milk and rotate the

Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position . Gently move the frothing

jug in a circular motion around the froth enhancer.

When the milk begins to increase in volume, immerse the froth enhancer deeper into the milk to further heat the milk. Do not allow the milk to boil.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘STANDBY’ position to stop the steaming function before removing the jug.

Add the steamed milk to each cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee and spoon on the frothed milk.

Switch the power off at the power outlet, unplug the power cord, remove all steam pressure and allow the appliance to cool.

Do not remove the water tank cap or the filter holder until the steam pressure in the appliance has been released. The Pressure Indicator Button should drop down and be flush with the top of the water tank cap.

HOW TO RELEASE THE

STEAM PRESSURE

Switch the power off at the power outlet and unplug the power cord.

Place the frothing jug under the steam nozzle.

Turn the selector control to the ‘STEAM’ position and allow all steam and residual water to completely drain off into the jug until all flow and sound ceases. The steam pressure is now removed.

Turn the selector control to the ‘BREW’ position to ensure steam pressure is removed, then turn back to the ‘STANDBY’ position.

The Pressure Indicator Button should drop down and be flush with the top of the water tank cap. (See Fig.5)

After the steam pressure has been released, remove the filter holder from the brew head. Using the filter retainer clip to secure the filter in the filter holder, turn the filter holder upside down to empty used coffee (used coffee grounds should be thrown away with domestic waste and not down the sink which may block drains). Rinse the filter and filter holder with water and allow to dry.

THE METAL PARTS OF THE FILTER HOLDER MIGHT STILL BE VERY HOT. COOL DOWN THESE PARTS BY RUNNING UNDER COLD WATER.

TO AVOID POSSIBLE BURNS FROM HOT STEAM AND WATER, NEVER REMOVE THE WATER TANK CAP OR THE FILTER HOLDER WHILE THERE IS STEAM PRESSURE IN THE WATER TANK. REMOVE ALL STEAM PRESSURE FIRST.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS

 

DRINKS TO TRY

 

 

 

THE COFFEE

Pre-groundcoffee will only retain its flavour for 1 week, provided it is stored in an air tight container, in a cool, dark area.

Whole coffee beans are recommended and should be ground just before use.

Coffee beans stored in an airtight container will keep up to 1 month before they begin to lose their flavour.

Do not store in a refrigerator or freezer.

THE GRIND

The coffee must be ground fine, but not too fine (the correct grind should look gritty, like sand or salt).

If the grind is too fine, the water will not flow though the coffee even under pressure (this grind looks like powder and feels like flour when rubbed between fingers).

If the grind is too coarse, the water flows through the coffee too fast, preventing a full flavoured extraction.

ESPRESSO

Intense and aromatic, an espresso, or short black as it’s also known, uses about 7g of ground coffee. It is served in a small cup or glass to a level of approximately 35mm.

CAPPUCCINO

A cappuccino is very light and almost luke warm. This has one-thirdespresso, onethird milk andone-thirdfoam. It is traditionally drunk before noon.

CAFFE LATTÉ

Served in a glass with a serviette, a caffe latté consists of one-thirdespresso, topped with steamed milk and about 10mm of foam.

MACCHIATO

Traditionally served short, the macchiato is also poured as a long black with a dash of milk or a dollop of foam.

LONG BLACK

A long black is generally served with a double shot of espresso.

RISTRETTO

Meaning restricted, a ristretto is an extremely short espresso of approximately 15mm, distinguished by its intense flavour and aftertaste.

CARE AND CLEANING

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO CLEAN THE STEAM SYSTEM AFTER EACH USE

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘STANDBY’ position and the steam pressure has been released.

Remove the froth enhancer from the steam tube and nozzle for cleaning and wipe the steam tube and nozzle with a damp cloth (fig A)

fig A

Remove the steam nozzle from the steam tube by unscrewing in a counter-

clockwise direction using the cleaning fig 8

tool provided (Fig B). Clean the steam nozzle by removing it and letting water run through it for about 10 seconds in the direction opposite to the normal steam flow. If the nozzle is still blocked clean it with the other end of the cleaning tool provided (Fig C).

fig B

fig C

 

 

Turn the Selector Control to ‘STEAM’ and allow the appliance to produce steam for4-5seconds to clear the steam tube. The filter holder does not have to be locked into position.

Turn the Selector Control to ‘STANDBY’, switch off at the power outlet, remove the plug and allow the appliance to cool.

Remove all steam pressure by following the instructions on Page 11.

After the steam pressure has been released, remove the water tank cap and discard the remaining water (always empty the water tank between uses).

The steam nozzle must be screwed back onto the steam tube in a clockwise direction and tightened using reasonable force with the end of the cleaning tool provided.

The filter holder, stainless steel filters and drip tray can be washed with soapy water. The drip tray consists of 2 parts and can be removed for easier cleaning. (Fig D).

Do not place any of the components in the dishwasher.

CARE AND CLEANING cont’d

DECALCIFYING

Hard water can cause limestone build up in and on the inner functioning components, reducing the brewing flow, power of the appliance, and affecting the quality of coffee. We advise decalcifying the appliance on a regular basis (once a month) using a liquid decalcifying agent. Follow the instructions provided or use the following as a guide:

Diluted solution (for softer water)

1 part decalcifying agent

2 parts cold tap water

Concentrated solution (for harder water)

1 part decalcifying agent

1 part cold tap water

Decalcifying the appliance

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘STANDBY’ position, the appliance is switched off at the power outlet and that the plug is disconnected.

Ensure the appliance is cool and all steam pressure in the appliance has been released.

Remove the stainless steel filter from the filter holder and place the filter holder back in position.

Place an empty cup on the drip tray, under the filter holder.

Remove the water tank cap and pour in the decalcifying solution.

Screw the water tank cap back on (make sure the cap is on tight).

Plug the appliance into the power outlet and turn the power switch on.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘BREW’ position and allow the decalcifying solution to run through the filter holder.

When the solution has run through the appliance (make sure that all the solution has run out and there is no steam pressure in the appliance), turn the Selector Control to the ‘STANDBY’ position, switch off at the power outlet and remove the plug and allow the appliance to cool.

After decalcifying, rinse the water tank thoroughly and refill with cold tap water.

Repeat the above procedures several times by running clear the water through the filter holder and through the steam nozzle (half each). This should remove any possible residual after taste left by decalcifying agent.

Replace the stainless steel filter and the appliance is ready to use.

The stainless steel filters should not come in contact with any decalcifying agents. Do not use powdered decalcifying agents.
