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 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.

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.

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 7 - BREWING THE COFFEE

The red ‘Heating’ light cycles off when the machine has reached the correct temperature for brewing.

Ensure the Drip Tray and Grid are in place.

Place one or two pre-warmed cups beneath the Filter Holder outlet.

Set the Selector Control to the ‘Espresso’ position.

After a few seconds*, aromatic coffee will begin to brew into the cups. A pumping noise will be heard in this operation.

When sufficient coffee has flowed into the cups, set the Selector Control to the ‘Standby’ position. This will stop the flow of coffee.

If the steam function is not required, leave the Selector Control to the ‘Standby’ position, unplug the power cord and allow the machine to cool.

PRE-BREW FUNCTION

When the Selector Control is set to the ‘Espresso’ position, the 15 bar pump pumps water momentarily, followed by a pause, then continues to pump the water through to the ground coffee in the Filter Holder. The ground coffee is moistened by a small amount of water before full extraction and expands resulting in greater pressure build-up to extract all the oils and full flavour from the ground coffee. The ground coffee expands and when greater pressure is built up, the brewed coffee is extracted with its full flavour.

NOTE: The machine remains ready for brewing and maintains a constant heating temperature whilst the Power On/off button is in the ‘On’ position. If the temperature lowers, the heating light will illuminate and the Thermoblock Heating System will automatically reheat to the correct brewing temperature

STEP 8 – EMPTYING THE FILTER HOLDER

Remove the Filter Holder from the Brew Head by turning the Filter Holder to the left until it releases. To empty the used coffee grounds, turn the filter holder upside down in a bin and gently tap out the coffee (used coffee grounds should be thrown away with domestic waste and not down the sink which may block drains). Remove the Filter by using using the indents on the side of the Filter Holder. Rinse the Filter and Filter Holder with water and allow to dry.

HOW TO FROTH MILK FOR A CAPPUCCINO OR LATTÉ

The 800 Class Espresso Machine comes complete with a Commercial Swivel Steam Wand and Stainless Steel Frothing Attachment. When using the Frothing Attachment a large amount of froth is easily created.

If less froth is required, remove the Frothing Attachment and steam the milk using the Steam Wand. To remove the Frothing Attachment, ensure it is cool then simply pull down and remove. The Frothing Attachment can be stored in the Storage Tray inside the machine if not used regularly.

To refit the Frothing Attachment ensure it is securely attached to the Steam Wand by inserting it, from either end opening, onto the Wand and pushing firmly upwards onto the rubber surround. Ensure the fine steam holes on either end of the Frothing Attachment are clean to achieve optimal frothing.

Turn the power button ‘On’

The first step in making a cappuccino or latté is to make a short espresso. Refer to “Operating your Breville 800 Class Espresso Machine” on Page 12.

Then fill the stainless steel frothing jug 1/3 full with cold fresh milk.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’ position. (Refer to information on Steam and Hot Water buttons on Page 19.) The ‘Heating’ light will start to flash indicating that the Thermoblock Heating System is heating and preparing to create steam.

WARNING: THE METAL PARTS OF THE FILTER HOLDER MIGHT STILL BE VERY HOT. COOL THESE PARTS IN COLD WATER.

HOW TO FROTH MILK FOR A CAPPUCCINO OR LATTÉ

17

 

 

 

 

NOTE: When the 800ES is creating steam a pumping noise can be heard. This is the normal operation of the 15 Bar pump.

When the red ‘Heating’ light stops flashing, quickly insert the Steam Wand into the jug of milk so that the Froth Attachment is just immersed into the milk.

NOTE: If steam starts coming from the Steam Wand before it is

immersed in the milk, pause the steam by turning the Selector Control back to the ‘Standby’ position. This will avoid the steam pressure blowing milk out of the jug.

Hold the frothing jug at an angle so that the Frothing Attachment sits just below the surface of the heating milk and the steam will move the milk around the inside of the jug in a circular motion.

NOTE: The 800ES features a Swivel Steam Wand assembly so the position of the Steam Wand can be changed to a comfortable angle.

When the milk starts to increase in volume, immerse the Frothing Attachment deeper into the jug to heat the milk.

Hold the jug at an angle with one hand and place your other hand on the outer base of the stainless frothing jug.

When the base of the jug becomes too hot to touch, set the Selector Control to the ‘Standby’ position, stopping the steaming function before removing the jug. A pumping noise will sound for a short time, do not be alarmed as there will be a five second delay prior to the machine carrying out the Autopurge function.

Pour the steamed milk into each cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee and spoon in the frothed milk, in the following ratios:

Cappuccino - 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, 1/3 frothed milk

Latté - 1/3 espresso topped with steamed milk and about 1cm of frothed milk, traditionally served in a glass)

STEAM BUTTON/HOT WATER BUTTON

The Steam button surround will automatically illuminate after the machine has first reached the correct temperature.

The machine will always automatically default to the Steam button when the appliance is first switched on.

Both buttons cannot be operated at the same time.

To select steam: when the Steam button surround is illuminated, just set the Selector Control to ‘Steam’

To select hot water: press the Hot Water button and the surround will illuminate, then just set the Selector Control to ‘Steam’.

If the machine remains switched ‘On’, the last button function used (Steam or Hot Water) will stay illuminated.

NOTE: Always ensure that the Frothing Attachment has been firmly pushed onto the Steam Wand and connects with the rubber surround.

For best results use cold fresh milk (low fat milk will froth easier)

Always clean the Steam Wand and Frothing Attachment after every use. Refer to Care and Cleaning on Page 20.

WARNING: MILK SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN OVER THE TOP OF THE FROTHING ATTACHMENT, OTHERWISE IT WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY.

TO AVOID SPLATTERING OF HOT MILK, DO NOT LIFT THE END OF THE FROTHING ATTACHMENT ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE MILK

WHILE FROTHING.

ENSURE THE SELECTOR CONTROL IS IN THE ‘STANDBY’ POSITION BEFORE REMOVING THE FROTHING JUG.

NOTE: For brewing more coffee immediately after using the steam function, the 800ES features an auto-purge function. This ensures that ground coffee will not be burnt by the initial water flow from the thermoblock that could be too hot. Instead this water is automatically released internally into the Drip Tray ensuring that the internal thermostat is at optimal temperature for extracting coffee. Your coffee will always be extracted at this optimal temperature ensuring only

the best flavoured coffee is achieved.

USING THE HOT WATER FUNCTION

The 800ES features a separate Hot Water function that can be used for making tea, hot chocolate and other warm drinks. The hot water is dispensed from the Steam Wand.

To use the Hot Water function, remove the Frothing Attachment from the Steam Wand. Press the Hot Water button then turn the Selector Control to ‘Steam’ . The Hot Water button surround will illuminate when selected.

Place a jug or cup underneath the Steam Wand to collect the hot water).

To turn the hot water off, turn the Selector Control to the ‘Standby’ position.

Limit the extraction of hot water to 2 litres each use.

The machine is not designed to make whole pots of coffee and tea. The more the amount of water is extracted the cooler it becomes.

NOTE: If the machine remains switched ‘On’, the last button function used will stay illuminated. To change to the steam function, simply press the Steam button so that the steam light surround illuminates and turn the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’ position. Refer to Steam Button/Hot Water Button information on Page 19

COFFEE MAKING TIPS

Making a good cup of coffee is an art that is simple to achieve. Here are some tips to help you make the perfect coffee.

NOTE: To enjoy an optimum flavoured espresso coffee, do not extract more than approximately 30ml (using the 1 cup filter holder) or for a double espresso do not extract more than 60ml (using a 2 cup filter holder).

THE COFFEE

Pre-ground coffee can be used and should be stored in an air-tight container, in a cool, dry area. Pre-ground coffee should not be kept for longer than 1 week as flavour will diminish. Do not refrigerate or freeze.

Whole coffee beans, freshly ground just before use, are recommended. Coffee beans should be stored in an air-tight container, in a cool, dry area but should not be kept for longer than 1 month as flavour will diminish. Do not refrigerate or freeze.

WATER FLOW

When brewing coffee, make sure the water flows through the Coffee Filter at the correct rate.

If the water flow is too slow the coffee will be over extracted and will be very dark and bitter, with a mottled and uneven crema on top.

If the water flow is too fast, the coffee will be under extracted – the optimal flavour will not develop, the coffee will be watery and lack the thick crema on the top.

The water flow can be adjusted by varying the pressure that the coffee is tamped (pressed down) in the Filter or by changing the grind of the coffee.

THE GRIND

If using a pre-ground coffee, ensure an espresso grind suitable for espresso/cappuccino machines is purchased.

If grinding coffee beans, the grind should be fine but not too fine or powdery. The grind will effect the rate at which the water flows through the coffee in the Filter and therefore the taste of the coffee.

If the grind is too fine (looks like powder and feels like flour when rubbed between fingers), the water will not flow through the coffee even when under pressure. The resulting coffee will be over extracted, too dark and bitter, with a mottled and uneven crema on top.

If the grind is too coarse the water will flow through the coffee too quickly. This will result in an under-extracted coffee lacking in flavour and without the thick crema on the top layer of coffee.

20

USING THE HOT WATER FUNCTION

COFFEE MAKING TIPS

21

 

 

 

 

TAMPING THE COFFEE

After measuring the ground coffee into the Filter it must be tamped (pressed down) using the flat end of the measuring spoon. The ground coffee should be tamped quite firmly.

If the coffee is not tamped firmly enough, the water will flow through the water too quickly and the coffee will be under extracted. If the coffee is tamped too firmly, however, the water will flow through the coffee too slowly and the coffee will be over extracted.

NOTE: The taste of your coffee will, of course, depend on personal preference and on many other factors such as the type of coffee bean used, the coarseness or fineness of the grind and the tamping pressure (pressed down). We recommend experimenting by varying these factors to achieve the coffee taste of your preference.

CARE AND CLEANING

CLEANING THE STEAM WAND AND FROTHING ATTACHMENT

The Steam Wand and Frothing Attachment should always be cleaned after frothing milk.

Remove the Frothing Attachment and rinse in warm tap water. Ensure the two fine steam holes on either end of the Frothing Attachment are clear. Use the pin on the Cleaning Tool to unblock these holes.

Wipe the Steam Wand with a damp cloth, then with the Steam Wand directed back into

Cleaning the drip tray, briefly set the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’ position and press the Hot

Water button. This will clear any remaining milk from inside the Steam Wand.

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’ position. Press the "on/off" button to off, switch off at the power outlet, unplug the power cord and allow the machine to cool.

If the Steam Wand remains blocked, use the pin on the Cleaning Tool to clear the opening.

If the Steam Wand continues to be blocked, the tip of the Steam Wand can be removed by using the spanner in the middle of the Cleaning Tool.

Soak the tip in hot water before using the pin on the Cleaning Tool to unblock. Replace the tip back onto the Steam Wand and secure with the Cleaning Tool.

24

CARE AND CLEANING

25

 

 

 

CLEANING THE FILTERS, FILTER HOLDER AND BREWING HEAD

The stainless steel Filters and Filter Holder should be rinsed under water directly after use to remove all coffee particles. Should the fine holes in the filters become blocked, the fine pin on the Cleaning Tool can be used to clear the holes.

The Brew Head interior should be wiped with a damp cloth to remove any ground coffee particles.

Periodically run water through the machine with the Filter Holder in place, but without any ground coffee, to rinse out any residual coffee particles.

CLEANING THE OUTER HOUSING /

CUP WARMING PLATE

The outer housing and cup warming plate can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth (do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which can scratch the surface).

CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY

The Drip Tray should be removed, emptied and cleaned at regular intervals, particularly when the Drip Tray Full Indicator is showing full.

Remove the Drip Tray Full Indicator and Grid from the Drip Tray, wash with warm soapy water, using a non-abrasive washing liquid, rinse and dry thoroughly.

If further cleaning is required the full indicator can be removed from the drip tray by releasing the side snaps.

CLEANING THE STORAGE TRAY

The Storage Tray can be removed after the Drip Tray is removed then cleaned with a soft, damp cloth (do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which can scratch the surface).

NOTE: Do not clean any of the parts or accessories in the dishwasher.

DECALCIFYING

After regular use, hard water can cause mineral 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 2-3 months) using a mixture of white vinegar and water. Follow the instructions provided, or use the following as a guide:

Diluted solution (for softer water)

1 part white vinegar

2 parts cold tap water

Concentrated solution (for harder water)

1 part white vinegar

1 part cold tap water

DECALCIFYING THE MACHINE

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’ position, the Power On/Off button is set to the ‘Off’ position and the machine is switched off at the power outlet and unplugged.

Remove the Filter Holder and Frothing Attachment. Pour the mixture of white vinegar and water into the water tank.

Plug the machine into the power outlet and switch on.

Set Power On/Off button to the ‘On’ position and the Selector Control to the ‘Standby’ position

Place a large container under both the Brew Head and the Steam Wand.

When the brewing temperature is reached the ‘Heating’ light will switch off. Set the Selector Control to the ‘Espresso’ position and let half the mixture of white vinegar and water run through the Brew Head.

Set the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’ position and allow the remaining liquid to run through the Steam Wand. When the liquid stops flowing, set the Selector Control back to the ‘Standby’ position.

After decalcifying, remove the Water Tank and rinse thoroughly then re-fill with fresh cold water. To rinse the machine, run half the water through the Brew Head and half through the Steam Wand.

The machine is ready for use.

WARNING: DO NOT IMMERSE CORD, PLUG OR APPLIANCE IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.

THE WATER TANK SHOULD NEVER BE REMOVED OR COMPLETELY EMPTIED DURING DECALCIFYING.
