6. 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, strength and flavor
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) ‘STEEPING’ as coffee and water are
steeped together.
c) ‘BREWING’ as the coffee is dispensed
into the cup.
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.
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, gold tone or paper
filter may still be very hot after
brewing. Use caution and allow to
cool before removing.
If using the gold tone filter, you
may notice the brewing cycle finish
before the ready signal sounds.
This is normal. The total brewing
time displayed on the LCD screen is
calculated using paper filters as coffee
passes through paper filters slower.
