- Use & Care
- Use extreme caution when dispensing hot steam.
- Do not touch the hot surface of appliance. Use handle or knobs. Do not touch the warming plate as it is HOT.
- Do not operate the machine without water as it can damage the boiler.
- Do not remove the portafilter when the appliance is brewing coffee or steaming milk.
- Allow the appliance to cool down completely before cleaning.
- Do not use harsh abrasives to clean. Wipe down the appliance housing with a damp cloth. NOTE: Do not clean with alcohol or solvent cleanser.
- Wipe the brew head with a damp cloth. Rinse the water tank, the grid and drip tray regularly with water.
- Empty the drip tray regularly and clean with hot soapy water.
- Detach the sieve from the portafilter by turning it until the bump on the sieve lines up with the notch in the portafilter, remove coffee residue with a stiff bristled brush. If any coffee particles are stuck in the small holes, they can be removed with a pin.
- If the inner screen inside the brew head accumulates coffee oils, it can be unscrewed for a thorough cleaning using a screwdriver. Ensure it is attached back onto the machine the same way after cleaning.
- Clean the seal around the brew head with a damp cloth and always keep it clean to maintain the life of your machine.
- Clean the frothing wand after every use.
- Remove the tip of the frothing wand and soak in hot water. Clean the threads of the frothing tip with a hot damp cloth. Regularly inspect the opening of the frothing wand to ensure there is no milk build up. Screw the frothing tip (with o-ring) back onto the frothing wand.
- NOTE: Do not operate the machine’s frothing wand without the frothing tip and o-ring in place.
- When making espresso, always use cold, clean water. Using spring water or filtered water will slow down calcium build up. We recommend decalcifying the machine after 100-200 uses or at least every 2–3 months.
- When using commercial decalcifying agents it is important to follow their instructions. You can also use Capresso Cleaning Solution, available at www.capresso.com. Dissolve 1 packet of Capresso Cleaning Solution with 30 oz. of water and add to the water tank.
- NOTE: Do not use vinegar as this will considerably shorten the life of the seal inside the brew head.

- Espresso Creme Brulee Recipe
Pour the crème brûlée mix into a saucepan and set over medium-high heat. Heat, stirring constantly, until small bubbles form around the edges of the pan. Whisk in the espresso powder and Kahlua.
Divide the custard among 4 heart-shaped ramekins. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 2 days before serving.
Just before serving, sprinkle 2 tsp. sugar over the surface of each custard. Using a professional culinary torch according to the manufacturer's instructions, move the flame continuously in small circles over the surface until the sugar melts and lightly browns. Serve immediately.
