After Every Use

Here’s the everyday checklist; an explanation of each step follows after.

Do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which can scratch the surface. Do not clean any of the parts or accessories in the dishwasher.

Cleaning the Filter Baskets & Portafilter

  • The filter baskets and portafilter should be rinsed under hot water immediately after use to remove all residual coffee oils.

  • If any of the holes in the filter basket become blocked, use the pin on the end of the provided cleaning tool to unblock the hole(s).

  • If the hole(s) remain blocked, dissolve a cleaning tablet in hot water and soak filter basket and portafilter in solution for approx. 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Cleaning the Shower Screen

  • The group head interior and shower screen should be wiped with a damp cloth to remove any ground coffee particles.

  • Periodically purge the machine. Place an empty filter basket and portfilter into the group head. Press and hold the 1 CUP button and run a short flow of water to rinse out any residual coffee.

Cleaning the Drip & Storage Tray

  • The drip tray should be removed, emptied and cleaned after each use or when the drip tray indicator is showing 'EMPTY ME!'.

  • Remove the grill from the drip tray. Wash both in warm soapy water. The 'EMPTY ME!' indicator can also be removed and cleaned separately.

  • The storage tray can be removed and cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths to clean any part of the machine as they can scratch the surfaces.

Cleaning the Steam Wand

  • Immediately after texturing milk, turn steam on to purge out any residual milk from the steam wand then wipe the wand with a damp cloth.

  • If any of the holes in the tip of the steam wand become blocked, ensure the STEAM/HOT WATER dial is in the STANDBY position. Press the POWER button to turn the machine Off and allow to cool. Use the pin on the end of the provided cleaning tool to unblock the hole(s).

  • If the steam wand remains blocked, remove the tip using the integrated spanner in the cleaning tool and soak in hot water. Use the pin on the end of the provided cleaning tool to unblock the hole(s) before re-attaching to the steam wand.

Cleaning the Outer Housing & Cup Warming Tray

  • The outer housing and cup warming tray can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which can scratch the surface.
