OPERATING YOUR ESPRESSO/CAPPUCCINO MACHINE

BEFORE USING YOUR

ESPRESSO MACHINE

Wash the filter holder and the stainless

filters in mild detergent and water.

Rinse thoroughly.

FILLING THE WATER TANK

1.Ensure the Power switch and Selector Control are set to the ‘OFF’ position.

2.Unplug the appliance from the power outlet.

3.Lift up the water tank lid and remove the water tank. Fill with cold water to the maximum mark and replace in the machine, pressing down firmly so that the water valve opens. Close the water tank lid.

The water tank should be filled with fresh cold water before use.

Check water level before use and replace the water daily.

Do not use mineral or distilled water.

PRE-HEATINGTHE MACHINE

For optimal crema, it is recommended to carry out a complete brewing operation with water but without any coffee grinds before making your first coffee to ensure that the machine has been preheated.

1.Make sure the Selector Control is in the ‘OFF’ position.

2.Plug the power cord into a 120V electrical outlet. Set the power switch to the ‘ON’ position.

3.As soon as the orange ‘heating’ light turns off, set the Selector Control to the ‘ESPRESSO’ position and run a small amount of water through the brewing head for a few seconds without the filter holder in place.

PRE-WARMINGCUPS

For optimal coffee temperature, pre-warmthe espresso cups by placing them on the cup warming plate.

PREPARING THE COFFEE

1.Place the 1 or 2 cup filter into the filter holder and fill with espresso coffee (use the smaller filter for 1 cup and the larger filter for 2 cups).

2.Use 1 level measure of 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 as the filter perforations have been constructed for optimal pressure build up in the machine.

3.Distribute the coffee evenly and press it lightly with the bottom of the measuring spoon (if there is too much coffee, the flow of water can become blocked).

4.Clean any excess coffee from the rim of the filter holder to ensure a proper fit under the brew head.

5.Holding the handle of the filter holder, slide back the black release clip towards you.

6.Place the filter holder underneath the brew head so that the handle is positioned to the left of center. Lift the filter holder until it contacts the brew head and rotate to the right. This will lock it in place.

BREWING COFFEE

1.Make sure the Selector Control is in the ‘OFF’ position.

2.Plug the power cord into a 120V electrical outlet. Set the power switch to the ‘ON’ position.

3.As soon as the orange ‘heating’ light turns off, the machine is heated up.

4.Make sure the drip tray is in place.

5.Place one or two pre-heatedcups beneath the filter holder.

6.Set the selector control to the ‘ESPRESSO’ position.

7.After a few seconds, aromatic coffee will begin to run through.

8.When sufficient coffee has flowed into the cups, set the selector control to the ‘OFF’ position. This will stop the flow of coffee.

9.If you do not need to use the steam function, set the power switch to the ‘OFF’ position, unplug the power cord and allow

the machine to cool.

10.Remove the filter holder from the brew head and using the filter retainer clip to secure the filter in the filter holder, turn the filter holder upside down to empty the 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 machine remains ready for brewing and maintains a constant heating temperature as long as the Power switch is left in the ‘On’ position. If the temperature should drop, the orange control light will illuminate and the heater will automatically heat up to the correct brewing temperature.

PREPARING ESPRESSO PODS

Your Café Roma can be used with most leading brands of espresso pods. To prepare the pod for brewing, place the pod in the 1-cupfilter and ensure that all of the pod’s surface area is fitted inside the filter. If the edges of the pod overflow the filter, you will need to trim them off until the pod is contained wholly within the filter. Lock the filter holder in place and brew the coffee as per the instructions on this page.

The quality of the coffee and crema produced will be dependent on the type of pod used.

Only use the 1 cup filter when using the espresso pods.

HOW TO FROTH MILK FOR A CAPPUCCINO OR LATTE

The Breville Café Roma comes complete with a frothing attachment for easier frothing of milk. The first step in making a cappuccino/latte is to make a short espresso (see "Brewing Coffee"). Then:

1.Fill the stainless steel frothing jug 13 full with cold milk.

2.As soon as the orange ‘heating’ light turns off, plunge the steam wand into jug of milk so that the main head of the froth enhancer is immersed into the milk.

3.Set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position.

4.Gently move the frothing jug in a circular motion around the froth enhancer.

5.When the milk has begun to increase in volume, immerse the froth enhancer deeper into the milk to further heat the milk.

6.The amount of froth desired may vary by individual. The stainless steel frothing jug will gradually become hot; be sure to hold the handle or use a towel to avoid a hot jug. Once the froth is to your liking switch the Selector Control to the ‘Off’ position to stop the steaming function before removing the jug. This will ensure that you don’t burn the milk.

7.Add the steamed milk to each cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee and spoon on the frothed milk in the following ratios:

Cappuccino

13 espresso,13 steamed milk,13 frothed milk

Latte

13 espresso topped with steamed milk and approximately 4" (10cm) of frothed milk (traditionally served in a glass)

THE METAL PARTS OF THE FILTER HOLDER MIGHT STILL BE

VERY HOT. COOL DOWN THESE PARTS BY RUNNING UNDER COLD

WATER. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE FILTER RETAINER CLIP WHEN

ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE MILK WHILE FROTHING. ENSURE THE SELECTOR CONTROL IS IN THE ‘OFF’ POSITION BEFORE REMOVING THE FROTHING JUG.

CARE AND CLEANING

Before cleaning, ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘OFF’ position. Unplug the appliance from the power outlet and allow the unit to cool.

CLEANING THE STEAM WAND AND FROTH ENHANCER

1.The steam wand and froth enhancer should always be cleaned after frothing milk.

2.Remove the froth enhancer and rinse under warm tap water.

3.Wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth.

4.Briefly set the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position to clear any remaining milk from the steam wand.

5.If the steam wand becomes blocked, wait for the machine to cool before using a needle or paperclip to unblock the opening.

CLEANING THE HOUSING/CUP WARMING TRAY

1.The outer housing can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth (do not use abrasive agents or cloths which can scratch the surfaces).

CLEANING THE FILTERS, FILTER HOLDER AND BREWING HEAD

1.Directly after use, remove used coffee grounds and rinse the stainless filters and filter holder under running water. Should the fine holes in the filters become blocked, then a normal dishwashing brush should be used (do not use a brush with metal bristles).

2.The brewing head should be wiped with a damp cloth to remove any old espresso grounds.

3.It is advisable to periodically run water through the unit with the filter in place but without any coffee to clean out any old coffee grounds.

CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY

1.The drip tray should be removed, emptied and cleaned at regular intervals, particularly when the water level indicator is exposed indicating the drip tray is full.

2.Remove the grid, steam baffle and water level indicator from the drip tray; wash all 4 parts with water and non-abrasivewashing liquid before rinsing and drying.

Do not place any of

the components in

the dishwasher.

DO NOT IMMERSE ANY PART OF YOUR BREVILLE

ANY OTHER LIQUID.

 

CARE AND CLEANING cont’d

DECALCIFYING

After regular use, hard water can cause limestone build up in and on many of the inner functioning components, reducing the brewing flow, power of the machine, and affecting the quality of coffee.

We advise decalcifying the machine on a regular basis (every 2-3months) 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

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

Do not use powdered decalcifying agents.

DECALCIFYING THE MACHINE

1.Make sure the Selector Control is in the ‘OFF’ position and that the plug is disconnected from the power outlet.

2.Remove the filter holder and pour in the decalcifying solution into the water tank.

3.Plug the machine into the power outlet.

4.Set Power switch to the ‘ON’ position and the Selector Control to the ‘OFF’ position

5.Place a large container under both the water outlet and the steam wand.

6.As soon as the brewing temperature is reached the orange ‘temperature’ light will switch off. Set the Selector Control to the ‘ESPRESSO’ position and let half the decalcifying solution run through the brewing head.

7.Turn the Selector Control to the ‘STEAM’ position and let the remaining solution run through the steam wand. When the solution has run through, set the Selector Control back to the ‘OFF’ position.

8.After decalcifying, rinse the water tank thoroughly and re-fillwith fresh cold water. To rinse the machine, run half the water through the brewing head and half through the steam wand.

9.The machine is ready for use.

THE WATER TANK SHOULD NEVER BE REMOVED

OR COMPLETELY EMPTIED DURING DECALCIFYING.

COFFEE MAKING TIPS

TIPS ON MAKING THE

PERFECT ESPRESSO

Don’t just rely on your coffee maker to do all the work. Making a good cup of coffee is an art.

WATER FLOW

If you’re making an espresso, make sure the water flows through the coffee filter at the correct rate. If it’s too slow, the coffee will be over-extracted- too dark and bitter, with a mottled and uneven crema on top. If it flows too quickly, the coffee will be underextracted - the proper flavor won’t have had time to develop. You can adjust the water flow by tamping (pressing down) the coffee firmly or by changing the grind of the coffee.

THE COFFEE

Pre-groundcoffee will only retain its flavor 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 flavor. Do not store in a refrigerator freezer.

14

THE GRIND

1.If using pre-groundcoffee, ensure you purchase an espresso grind for espresso/cappuccino machines.

2.If grinding your own beans the coffee must be ground fine, but not too fine. It can affect the taste and the rate the water flows through it.

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

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