• Press the 1 CUP or 2 CUP button again to stop the extraction.

Pressing any button during extraction will stop extraction and the machine will return to standby mode.

PROGRAMMING SHOT VOLUME 
• Press and hold both the 1 CUP and 2 CUP buttons for 3 seconds, the buttons will illuminate and flash. 

To set the 1 CUP volume: 
• Press the 1 CUP button to start the extraction. 
• Press the 1 CUP button again to stop the extraction. The modified volume will be saved. 
To set the 2 CUP volume, follow the above steps but select the 2 CUP button to start and stop the extraction.

USING HOT WATER 

The machine has a dedicated hot water outlet. 
• Turn the dial on the right, from STANDBY to 
HOT WATER.

• Turn the dial back to STANDBY to stop hot water flow.

• Maximum flow out of hot water volume is 8fl.oz (240ml).

Cup temperature is approximately 194°F (90°C). Be careful in handling hot beverages. 

TEXTURING MILK 

There are two phases to texturing milk, stretching, and heating. These two operations should blend into one with the goal being silky smooth textured milk at the correct temperature. 
• Start with fresh cold milk of choice. 
• Fill the milk jug between the min and max level. 
• Position the steam tip over the drip tray and turn the dial from STANDBY to STEAM and wait until the steam is flowing strongly. 
• Turn the steam dial to the STANDBY position to pause the steam, then within 8 seconds, insert steam wand tip into milk jug and turn dial back to STEAM position. 
• Insert the steam tip 1-2cm below the surface of the milk close to the right-hand side of the jug at the 3 o’clock position. 
• Keep the tip just under the surface of the milk until the milk is spinning clockwise, producing a vortex (whirlpool effect).

• With the milk spinning, slowly lower the jug. This will bring the steam tip to the surface of the milk and start to introduce air into the milk. You may have to gently break the surface of the milk with the tip to get the milk spinning fast enough. 
• Keep the tip at or slightly below the surface, continuing to maintain the vortex. Texture the milk until sufficient volume is obtained. 
• Lower the tip beneath the surface but keep the vortex of milk spinning. The milk is at the correct temperature 140-149°F (60-65°C) when the jug is hot to comfortably touch. 
• Move the steam dial to the STANDBY position before taking the tip out of the milk.
• Set the jug to one side, turn dial to STEAM to purge out any residual milk from the steam wand and wipe steam wand with a damp cloth.
• Tap the jug on the bench to collapse any bubbles. 
• Swirl the jug to polish and re-integrate the texture. 
• Pour milk directly into the espresso. 
• The key is to work quickly, before the milk begins to separate. 

Pressurized steam can still be released, even after machine has been switched off. Children must always be supervised.

Care & Cleaning. Coffee Machines Barista Express Impress  

REPLACING THE WATER FILTER IN THE WATER TANK

Soak water filter for 5 mins

Rinse water filter 

Place filter into filter holder

Set date 3 months ahead

Install filter in water tank 

Insert & lock water tank

The provided water filter helps reduce the risk of scale build-up in and on many of the inner functioning components. Replacing the water filter every three months will reduce the need to descale the machine. If you live in a hard water area, it is recommended to change the water filter more frequently

After regular use, hard water can cause mineral build up in and on many of the inner functioning components, reducing the brewing flow, brewing temperature, power of the machine, and taste of the espresso. 
• Remove the filter from the plastic bag, and soak in a cup of water for 5 minutes. 
• Rinse the filter under cold running water for 5 seconds. 
• Insert the filter into the filter holder. 
• Set the date dial 3 months ahead. 
• To install, push down the filter to lock into place.

For replacement of water filters contact Breville Customer Service Centre or visit our website at
