COFFEE PREPARATION

Dosing & Tamping the Ground Coffee
Insert the correct Filter Basket into the portafilter. Fill the Filter Basket with ground coffee, tap down to collapse the coffee, then using the integrated tamper, tamp down firmly.

It’s important to apply consistent pressure every time.

  • As a guide to dose, the top edge of the metal cap on the tamper should be level with the top of the filter basket AFTER the coffee has been tamped.
    diagram
  • Wipe excess coffee from the rim of the filter basket to ensure a proper seal in the group head is achieved.

TRIMMING THE DOSE

The water filter provided helps to prevent scale build up which over time can affect the performance of your machine, potentially causing blockages and heating problems.

Replacing the water filter every three months will reduce the mineral build up in the machine.
If you live in a hard water area, we recommend you change the water filter more frequently.

PORTAFILTER CLEANING

Periodically run water through the machine with the portafilter in place, but without any ground coffee, to rinse out any residual coffee particles.

MACHINE CLEANING

After regular use, residual grinds and oil build up in the machine can affect coffee extraction.
We recommend performing a cleaning cycle every 2-3 months using the cleaning tablet provided.

To perform a cleaning cycle:

  1. Insert the silicon disk into the portafilter.
  2. Place the cleaning tablet on the silicon disk (position in the center).
  3. Insert the portafilter into the group head and rotate to right to lock in position.
  4. Ensure Power On / Off button is on.
  5. Turn the dial to the ‘Espresso’ position for 20 seconds.
  6. Turn the dial back to the ‘Standby’ position.
  7. Repeat steps 5-6 three times or until the cleaning tablet is dissolved.

DESCALING

Even if you are correctly using the water filter provided, we recommend you to descale when you see scale build-up in the water tank.

Visit Sage® webpage to purchase “the Descaler”

  1. Ensure the Control Dial is in the ‘Standby’ position, the machine is switched off.
  2. Remove the filter holder.
  3. Empty one sachet (25g) into 1 liter of warm water, stir to dissolve.
    Pour solution into the water tank.
  4. Press the POWER button to switch the machine on.
  5. Place a large container under both the Group Head and the Steam Wand.
  6. Set the Control Dial to the ‘Espresso’ position and let half the descale solution run through the Group Head.
  7.  Set the Control Dial to the ‘Steam’ position and allow the remaining solution to run through the Steam Wand. When the liquid stops flowing, set the Control Dial back to the ‘Standby’ position.
  8. After descaling, remove the water tank and rinse thoroughly then refill with fresh cold water. To rinse the machine, repeat steps 5-8.

AUTO OFF MOD

The machine automatically switches to AUTO OFF mode after 20 minutes.

CLEANING THE STEAM WAND

CLEANING FILTER BASKETS

Should the fine holes in the filters become blocked follow the steps below:

  1. Place the filter into the portafilter. Run water through the machine with the filter and portafilter, without any ground coffee, in place.
  2. A pin can be used to clear the filter basket holes.
  3. For a thorough clean of the filters, dissolve a cleaning tablet in hot water and soak filters overnight.

CLEANING THE OUTER HOUSING / CUP WARMING PLATE

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

CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY

The drip tray should be removed, emptied and cleaned at regular intervals.

Wash the drip tray with warm soapy water, using a non-abrasive washing liquid, rinse and dry thoroughly. The drip tray base and cover are dishwasher safe.

CLEANING THE STORAGE TRAY

The storage tray can be removed after the drip tray is removed then cleaned with a soft, damp cloth (do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or cloths which can scratch the surface).

STORING YOUR MACHINE

Before storing, press the POWER button to off, turn the Control Dial to ‘Standby’ and unplug. Insert all accessories into position or into the storage tray.
Store upright. Do not place anything on top.
