Procedures for Blitz Espresso Coffee Machine Prior to use: Prime the machine by pushing the hot water switch until hot water is flowing freely. (Steam and water may spurt out until it is fully primed) Ensure the pod holder is empty, and then push the coffee button to flush. Push the steam button for 5-10 seconds to ensure steam boiler is operating. You are now ready to make your first coffee. Note: This procedure should be followed at the commencement of each day or if the machine has been standing idol for an excessive period of time. Making Espresso: Remove the espresso Pod from its foil packet. Lower the Pod lever on the right hand side of the machine and insert the Pod into the group basket. Close the Pod lever. Press the ‘short pour’ coffee button once, a shot of Espresso will be dispensed automatically to a preset quantity. For milk coffees such as lattes and flat white, move the cup underneath the milk frother and push the steam button. Push again when the desired quantity of frothed milk is dispensed. Milk temperature can be adjusted by turning the small tap screw on the back of the frother unit. Turn anticlockwise to increase temperature. Note that if you over-tighten this screw, the frother will not operate correctly (milk flow will splutter or cease altogether) Froth levels can be increased by gently twisting and pulling up on the froth control pin, or reduced by pushing the pin down. For black coffee, top up cup with boiling water from the hot water tap located on the right hand side of the machine. Cleaning: Back flush the milk system by inserting the steam pipe into the hole beneath the steam button, then push the steam button until all milk residue is flushed out and the water runs clear. Remove the steam pipe and hold under the milk tap whilst pushing the steam button again. This will sterilize the steam pipe. Remove any pods that remain in the pod holder, and then flush by pushing the coffee button. Remove drip tray, empty, clean and replace. (Do not clean in a dishwasher) Wipe down the machine with a micro fibre cloth.
