Operating your Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine

Before first use

Remove and safely discard any packaging material or promotional labels before using your Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine for the first time.

It is recommended to wash the frothing jug, measuring spoon, filter holder and the stainless steel filters in mild detergent and water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Wipe the outer housing with a soft, damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Do not immerse the outer housing, power cord or power plug in water or any other liquid.

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

Note

Filling the water tank

Ensure that the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch is in the ‘OFF’ position and the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’ position.

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

Open the water tank lid and remove the water tank. Fill the water tank with cold water to the maximum mark and replace back into 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 used mineral or distilled water.

Note

Pre-heating the machine

For optimal crema, it is recommended to carry out a complete brewing operation with water but without any ground coffee in the filter holder before making your first coffee to ensure that the machine has been pre-heated.

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’ position.

Insert the power plug into a 230/240V outlet and switch on. Press the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch to ‘ON’.

When the orange ‘Heating’ light goes off, turn the Selector Control to the ’Espresso’­ position and allow a small amount of water to run through the brew head for a few seconds without the filter holder in place.

Crema is the finely-aerated, golden, aromatic layer, extracted from the ground coffee during brewing, that settles on top of the brewed coffee.

Note

Pre-warming cups

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

10/6/08 3:04:12 PM

Operating your Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine continued

Preparing the coffee

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

Use 1 level measure of ground coffee for the 1 cup filter and 2 level measures for the 2 cup

filter. It is important to use the correct amount of ground coffee as the filter perforations have been constructed for optimal pressure build up in

the machine.

Distribute the ground coffee evenly in the filter and tamp (press) lightly with the bottom of the measuring spoon (if there is too much ground coffee or too firmly tamped, the flow of water can be blocked).

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

Place the filter retainer clip in the release position, by pulling the clip back towards your hand.

Place the filer holder underneath the brew head so that the handle is positioned to the left of centre. Lift the filter holder until it contacts the brew head and rotate to the right.

Operating your Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine continued

Brewing the coffee

Ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘sTANDBy’ position.

Insert the power plug into a 230/240V power outlet and switch on.

Press the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch to ‘ON’. The red ‘POWER’ light and the orange ‘HEATING’ light will illuminate. The orange ‘Heating’ light goes off when the machine is heated.

Ensure the drip tray is in place.

Position one or two pre-heated cups beneath the filter holder.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘EsPRESSO’ position.

After a few seconds, aromatic coffee will begin to run through the filter holder.

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

If the ‘steam’ function is not required, press the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch to ‘Off’, switch off at the power outlet, unplug the power cord and allow the machine to cool.

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 into a bin. 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 Breville Café Modena Espresso/ Cappuccino Machine remains ready for brewing and maintains a constant heating temperature whilst the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch remains in the ‘ON’ position. If

the temperature decreases, the orange ‘HEATING’ light will illuminate and the heater will automatically heat to maintain the correct brewing temperature.

Note

How to froth milk for a cappuccino or latte

The Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine comes complete with a steam wand for easier steaming and frothing of milk. The first step in making a cappuccino/latte is to make a short espresso (see ‘Brewing the coffee’). Then:

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

When the orange ‘Heating’ light goes off, insert the steam wand, with the froth enhancer attached, into jug of milk so that the head of the froth enhancer is just immersed into the milk.

THE METAL PARTS OF THE FILTER HOLDER MAY STILL BE VERY HOT. COOL THESE PARTS UNDER COLD WATER. ENSURE THE FILTER RETAINER CLIP IS USED TO SECURE FILTER WHEN DISCARDING THE COFFEE GROUNDS.

 

 

 

 

BES230_CAFE MODENA_FA.indd 8-9

10/6/08 3:04:14 PM

Operating your Breville Café Modena Espresso/Cappuccino Machine continued

Turn the selector control to the ‘Steam’ position.

Gently move the frothing jug in a circular motion around the froth enhancer to steam the milk.

When the milk begins to increase in volume, immerse the froth enhancer deeper into the milk to further froth the milk, if required.

To avoid over-heating or burning the milk, place your hand on the bottom of the stainless frothing jug. When the jug becomes almost too hot to touch, turn the selector control to the ‘Standby’ position to stop the steaming function before removing the jug.

When steaming milk a pumping should will be heard. This is the pump operating and is normal.

As the Selector Control is turned to the ‘STANDBY’ position, steam will be released from the machine. This is normal operation.

Note

Always ensure that the froth enhancer has been firmly inserted onto the steam wand.

For best results use fresh cold milk (lite milk will froth easier).

Always clean the steam wand and froth enhancer after each use (refer to Care and cleaning on Page 12).

Use the steam wand without the froth enhancer if steamed milk without the froth is required.

If brewing more coffee immediately after using the ‘STEAM’ function, turn

the Selector Control to the ‘ESPRESSO’ position and allow a small amount of water to run through the brew head for a few seconds without the filter holder in place. This will prepare the machine for optimal brewing temperature.

Note

Carefully pour the steamed milk into each cup of freshly brewed espresso coffee and spoon the frothed milk on top in the following ratios:

Cappuccino – 13

espresso, 13 steamed milk,

 

13

frothed milk

Latte –

13

espresso topped with steamed

 

milk and about 10cm of frothed

 

milk (traditionally served in a glass)

WHEN FROTHING, MILK SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN OVER THE TOP OF THE FROTH ENHANCER, OTHERWISE IT WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY.

TO AVOID SPLATTERING OF HOT MILK, DO NOT MOVE THE STEAM WAND OR FROTH ENHANCER ABOVE THE SURFACE OF THE MILK WHILE STEAMING OR FROTHING.

WHEN STEAMING OR FROTHING MILK, ENSURE THE SELECTOR CONTROL IS IN THE ‘STANDBY’ POSITION BEFORE REMOVING THE FROTHING JUG.

Coffee making tips

Tips on making the perfect espresso

Don’t just rely on your coffee machine 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 flavour will not have had time to develop. Adjust the water flow by tamping (pressing down) the ground coffee firmly or by changing the grind of the coffee.

The coffee

Pre-ground coffee 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 coffee or beans in a refrigerator or freezer.

The grind

If using pre-ground coffee, purchase an espresso grind suitable for espresso/cappuccino machines.

If grinding coffee, select a fine grind setting suitable for espresso coffee.

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).

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

Care and cleaning

Before cleaning, ensure the Selector Control is in the ‘Standby’ position and press the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch to ‘OFF’. Switch off at the power outlet, then unplug the power cord and allow the coffee machine to cool completely before cleaning.

Cleaning the steam wand & froth enhancer

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

Remove the froth enhancer and rinse under warm tap water.

Wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth.

Place a clean jug or cup under the steam wand then turn the Selector Control briefly to the

‘Steam’ position to clear any remaining milk from the steam wand.

If the fine opening of the steam wand becomes blocked, allow the machine to cool and use a needle or fine sharp implement to unblock the opening.

Cleaning the filters, filter holder and brew head

Immediately after use, remove the filter holder and discard the used ground coffee. Rinse the stainless steel filters and filter holder under hot running water. Should the fine holes in the filters become blocked, then a clean, plastic dishwashing

brush should be used (do not use a brush with metal bristles).

The brew head area should be wiped with a damp cloth to remove any remaining used ground coffee.

It is advisable to periodically run water through the coffee machine with an empty filter and filter holder in place to remove any used ground coffee.

Cleaning the housing/cup warming tray

The outer housing can be wiped with a soft, damp cloth (do not use abrasive agents or cloths which can scratch the surfaces), then polished and dried with a soft, dry cloth.

DO NOT IMMERSE ANY PART OF YOUR BREVILLE CAFé MODENA ESPRESSO/ CAPPUCCINO MACHINE IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.

12

BES230_CAFE MODENA_FA.indd 12-13

Care and cleaning continued

Cleaning the drip tray

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

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

Do not place any parts of the Espresso/ Cappuccino machine in the dishwasher.

Note

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 2-3 months) using a mixture of white vinegar and water. 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 and the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch is pressed to ‘OFF’. Switch off at the power outlet and unplug the power cord.

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

Insert the power cord at the outlet and switch on.

Press the Power ‘ON/OFF’ switch to the ‘ON’.

Place a suitably large container under both the brew head and the steam wand.

When the brewing temperature is reached the orange ‘HEATING’ light will go off.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘Espresso’ position and allow half the decalcifying solution to run through the brew head.

Turn the Selector Control to the ‘Steam’ position and allow the remaining solution run through the steam wand. Then turn the Selector Control to the ‘STANDBY’ position.

After decalcifying, re-fill the water tank with fresh cold water and rinse the machine by following the instructions for decalcifying and running half the water through the brew head and half through the steam wand.

The machine is now ready for use.

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

Do not use commercial powder or liquid decalcifying agents.

Note

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