Page: 10
Correct use
Caution. The coffee spouts and the
cappuccinatore present a danger of
burning or scalding. The liquids and
steam dispensed are very hot.
~ Please note:
– Keep well away from the area
underneath the coffee spouts or
cappuccinatore when hot liquids and
steam are being dispensed.
– Do not touch hot components.
– Ensure that the cappuccinatore is
fitted correctly. Only fit the
cappuccinatore if it is clean. If it
becomes clogged, hot liquid or
steam could spatter from the nozzle
or it could dislodge.
– The machine must not be used for
cleaning objects.
~ Clean the coffee machine
thoroughly before using it for the first
time. Rinse through the coffee and milk
pipework (see "Cleaning and care").
~ Please note the following regarding
water:
– Only use cold, clean tap water to fill
the water container. Warm or hot
water or other liquids could damage
the machine.
– Change the water every day to
prevent a build-up of bacteria.
– Do not use mineral water. Mineral
water will cause serious limescale
deposits to build up in your machine
and damage it.
– Do not use water from reverse
osmosis units. The machine could be
damaged.
~ Only fill the bean container with
roasted coffee beans. Do not fill the
bean container with coffee beans which
have been treated or with ground
coffee.
~ Do not reach into the grinding
mechanism.
~ Only add ground coffee or cleaning
tablets to the ground coffee chute. The
cleaning tablets remove grease from
the brew unit.
~ Only use milk without additives.
Sugar additives would stick to the milk
pipework and the cappuccinatore.
~ Do not use coffee beans which have
been treated with caramel, sugar or
other substances as they could
damage the machine.
~ Do not place any alcohol mixtures
which are alight underneath the coffee
spouts. The flames could ignite plastic
components and cause them to melt.
~ Do not place any naked flames, e.g.
a candle, on or near the coffee
machine. The coffee machine could
catch fire.

~ Please note the following with
regard to cleaning the coffee machine:
– Disconnect the coffee machine from
the electricity supply before
cleaning.
– Clean the coffee machine every day
(see "Cleaning and care" for more
information).
– Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. Steam could cause a
short circuit.
– Descale the coffee machine regularly
using the appropriate number of
Miele descaling tablets for the water
hardness level in your area. Descale
the machine more frequently in areas
with very hard water. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage arising from insufficient
descaling.
– Degrease the brew unit regularly with
Miele cleaning tablets. Depending on
the natural oil content of the coffee
used, the brew unit can become
blocked quite quickly.
– Used coffee grounds should be
disposed of with organic rubbish or
on the compost heap, but not
emptied down the sink as they could
block it.
For machines with a stainless steel
trim:
~ Do not use sticky notes, transparent
adhesive tape, masking tape or other
types of adhesive on the stainless steel
trim. These damage the surface,
causing it to lose its dirt repellent
protective coating.
~ The surface of the stainless steel
trim is susceptible to scratching. Even
magnets can cause scratches to
appear.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Water hardness
The water hardness indicates how
much calcium is dissolved in the water.
The higher the calcium content, the
harder the water, and the harder the
water, the more often the coffee
machine will need to be descaled.
The coffee machine measures the
quantity of water and steam used. The
number of drinks which can be
dispensed before the machine needs to
be descaled will depend on the water
hardness level set.
Set the water hardness level on the
coffee machine to the water hardness
level for the local area to ensure that
the machine functions correctly and is
not damaged. This will ensure that the
reminder to descale the machine will
appear in the display at the correct
time.

You can customise the coffee machine
to suit your exact requirements. You
can
– adjust the grinder setting,
– change the amount of coffee,
– pre-brew the freshly ground coffee,
– set the brewing temperature.
Grinder setting
You can adjust the grinder setting to
suit the type of coffee you are using.
When the beans are ground correctly,
the coffee or espresso will flow evenly
into the cup with a good crema.
The crema should have an even
nut-brown colour.
There are various ways to tell whether
the coffee grinder is set correctly.
The coffee is too coarsely ground, if
– espresso or coffee flows into the cup
too quickly.
– the crema is very pale and uneven.
Set a finer grinder setting.
The coffee is too finely ground, if
– espresso or coffee only trickles into
the cup.
– the crema is dark brown.
Set a coarser grinder setting.
To avoid damaging the grinder:
only ever adjust the grinder by one
setting at a time. Grind the coffee
beans again if you want to adjust the
grinder to the next setting.
^ Place a suitable container
underneath the coffee spouts.
^ Open the lid on the right hand side of
the coffee machine.
^ Press the / or . button.
^ Turn the rotary control for the grinder
setting anti-clockwise, if you want the
beans to be ground more finely.
or
^ Turn the rotary control for the grinder
setting clockwise, if you want the
beans to be ground more coarsely.
The altered grinder setting will not be
used until after the second coffee has
been dispensed.

Amount of coffee
The coffee machine can grind and
brew 6-14 g of coffee per cup. The
greater the quantity, the stronger the
coffee or espresso.
There are various ways to tell whether
the amount of coffee is set correctly.
The amount of coffee is too low, if
– espresso or coffee flows into the cup
too quickly.
– the crema is very pale and uneven.
– the espresso or coffee lacks body.
Increase the amount of coffee so that
more ground coffee is brewed.
The amount of coffee is too high, if
– espresso or coffee only trickles into
the cup.
– the crema is dark brown.
– the espresso or coffee tastes bitter.
Decrease the amount of coffee so that
less ground coffee is brewed.
You can alter the amount of coffee, by
selecting a different setting. There is a
choice of three settings:
– mild
– normal
– strong
You can set different amounts of coffee
for espresso and coffee.

Pre-brewing the coffee
When the pre-brewing function is
switched on, the freshly ground coffee
is first moistened with a little hot water.
Then the remaining water is forced
through the moistened coffee at high
pressure. This helps release the flavour
of the coffee.
The pre-brewing function can be
switched on or off. The machine is
delivered with pre-brewing switched
off.
^ In the main menu, press the OK

or
^ Turn the rotary control until NO
appears in the display, if you want to
switch pre-brewing off.
^ Then press the OK button.
The setting is now saved.
Brewing temperature
The ideal brewing temperature will
depend on
– the type of coffee,
– whether an espresso or a coffee is
being prepared, and
– the altitude of the region.
If the coffee machine is located at more
than 2000 metres above sea level, the
brewing temperature needs to be set
lower due to the change in pressure.
This is because the boiling point for
water at a high altitude above sea level
is lower than the boiling point for water
at sea level.
You can set different temperatures for
espresso and coffee. There is a choice
of three temperatures:
– low
– normal
– high
TIP Not all types of coffee can
withstand a high temperature. Certain
types are too delicate - the crema on
top would not be as good and the taste
would be impaired.

Danger of burning and scalding on
hot components or by hot liquids!
Always allow the coffee machine to
cool down before cleaning. Caution.
The water in the drip tray can be
very hot.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
the coffee machine. The steam
could cause a short circuit.
Do not use cleaners containing
chlorides, acids, soda or scouring
agents. These would damage the
surface.
Avoid using the following on all
surfaces:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven cleaner,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– hard, abrasive sponges, e.g. pot
scourers, brushes or sponges which
have been previously used with
abrasive cleaning agents,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
Rinsing the system
It is very important to rinse the system
every day to remove any coffee
residues before using the coffee
machine. The hot water from the rinsing
process also pre-warms the pipework
so that it is ready for preparing coffee
or espresso.
It is just as important to rinse the
system before you switch the coffee
machine off.
TIP If you do not want the water from
the rinsing process to flow into the drip
tray, place a suitable container
underneath the coffee spouts before
preparing the first coffee of the day.
Switching automatic rinsing on and
off
The pipework is rinsed through
automatically when the coffee machine
is switched off if the automatic rinsing
function is switched on and the coffee
machine has been used for preparing
drinks.
The machine is delivered with automat-
ic rinsing switched on.
TIP To ensure that you do not forget to
rinse the system, leave the automatic
rinsing function switched on or switch it
on (if it has been switched off).

has elapsed since a drink with milk has
been prepared. Milk residue can clog
up the cappuccinatore.
If the cappuccinatore is used to heat or
froth milk, it is important to take it apart
and clean it once a day.
The cappuccinatore must be cleaned
by hand only using hot water and a little
washing-up liquid.

container is full and needs to be
emptied. Remove the drip tray and
waste container and empty and clean
them when this message appears, if not
