5. Start the Brew Cycle
Press the START | CANCEL button. The
grinder will commence grinding the
correct amount of coffee for the selected
brew size and strength. If the
‘PRE-GROUND’ coffee setting has been
selected, the grinder will be disabled.
Steam may emit from the rear steam
vent during grinding and brewing.
This is normal.
The count-down timer will then begin. The
time displayed is an estimate only and will
depend on the amount and strength settings
you have selected.
The LCD screen will display:
a) ‘PRE-HEATING’ as the water is heated
to the optimal temperature. The
pre-heating time will depend on the
starting temperature of the water in
the water tank.
b) ‘BREWING’ as the coffee is dispensed
into the carafe.
To stop the cycle at any time, press the
START | CANCEL button. You will hear
a winding noise. This is normal.
Never open the swing-out door and
remove the coffee basket while brewing.
Hot water and coffee can cause injury.
6. Using the Brew Pause Feature
The Brew Pause feature temporarily
ceases the flow of coffee when the carafe is
removed so a cup can be poured mid-brew.
Do not remove the carafe for longer than
20 seconds or the coffee may overflow the
coffee basket.
7. Empty the Coffee Basket
Once the brewing cycle is complete, the
ready signal will sound and a winding noise
will be heard. This is normal. The coffee
machine will automatically shut-off, however
the LCD screen will flash ‘EMPTY COFFEE
FILTER’ as a reminder to remove the coffee
basket and discard the used grinds. Wash
the coffee basket, taking particular care to
rinse the chute area. Then dry the coffee
basket and chute area thoroughly.
We also recommend checking the coffee
grinds chute disc for any build-up of coffee
grinds. This is the stainless steel disc that is
visible when the swing-out door is opened.
A build-up of grinds on this disc can affect
the performance of the machine. Wipe the
disc clean then dry thoroughly.
The coffee basket and gold tone or
paper filter may still be very hot after
brewing. Use caution and allow to cool
before removing.
8. Pour and Enjoy
Ensure the carafe lid is securely locked in
position. There is no need to turn or adjust
the lid before pouring. The lid automatically
opens when pouring and closes when not to
keep coffee hot.
Hot steam may rise when pouring.
The bottom of the carafe is hot to touch
for several minutes after brewing. Use
caution and ensure not to set the carafe
on a heat sensitive surface.
