(*) This model has been certified by the (SCA) Specialty Coffee Association to meet their rigorous technical requirements when using the Golden Cup Function


In order to prime the machine for first time use you will need to perform two full brewing cycles, without coffee, using fresh, cold water only, as follows:

• Plug into outlet

• Turn the lid counter-clockwise to unlock lid and remove.

• Pour fresh water into water tank up to the MAX level (40 oz.)

• Put the LID and turn clockwise to lock in.

• Push the SCA Golden Cup button to prime the machine.

• At the end empty the carafe and do again the cycle.


Requirements for SCA Certified Home Brewers:

• Infusion temperature 197.5 - 204.8°F (92-96°C)

• Saturation time (4 to 8 minutes)

• Coffee to Water Ratio 1 measuring scoop (8.25 g) per Cup (5 oz.)

The De’Longhi 3 in 1 Specialty Brewer meets these requirements and has earned the certifications of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).


A specifically designed shower head and automatic waterflow control, ensures an evenly saturated coffee powder for a more intense and aromatic flavour, at the touch of a button.


Our SCA certified machine delivers bold, rich taste that is never watered down, even over ice.


When using this function it is recommended to use the coffee to water ratio of 1 measuring scoop per cup.

• To remove the lid, turn counterclockwise to unlock.

Pour fresh water into the water tank up to the level indicated for the number of cups of coffee you want to make.

• Position the paper filter in the filter holder. Use only paper cone filter #4.

• Place the ground coffee in the filter using the measuring scoop provided and level evenly. See the table for recommended quantities. Use high quality ground coffee for drip coffee makers.

The quantities given in the table are suggested and should be adapted to your personal taste and the type of coffee. The type of blend has a considerable influence on the coffee you make.

You should therefore try various types of coffee to find the one best suited to your taste.

• To lock the lid align the symbol with the indicator line on the back of the machine (fig. 12). Then turn the lid clockwise to lock in place, aligning the lock symbol with indicator line on the back of the machine.

• Make sure the carafe is correctly placed on the warming plate.

• To select SCA Golden Cup function push button (F)

• To select Pour Over function push button (G) twice quickly

• Once you have selected your desired coffee function there will be one beep sound and the corresponding button will light up. When the brewing cycle ends there will be three beeps.

• To stop the brewing cycle before completion, push the illuminated button once.

• Please note, throughout the brewing cycle it is normal for steam to be released.


• Fill carafe with ice cubes up to the max indicated on the carafe.

• Pour four cups of water into the water tank and eight measuring scoops of ground coffee into filter to produce 8 cups of Over Ice Coffee. Do not exceed these recommended quantities.

• To select Over Ice function press button (G). Once the Over Ice function has been activated there will be one beep sound and a blue light will be illuminated on the button.

• To stop the brewing cycle before completion, push the illuminated button.

Please note: Before pouring coffee from the carafe, remove the filter holder and place it on the filter base (N).


This coffee maker has an automatic anti-drip system, Carafe Sensor (C), that stops brewing when the glass carafe has been removed from the warming plate. To continue the brewing cycle place the carafe back onto the warming plate.


Once the brewing cycle has finished, the warming plate will stay on for one hour in order to keep the coffee at the ideal temperature.

If you want to turn off the warming plate before one hour, then push the illuminated button (F or G).

Please note: When using the Over Ice function the warming plate will automatically turn off and remain off.


Before maintenance or cleaning of the appliance, turn off, unplug and allow to cool.

• Do not use solvents or abrasive detergents to clean the coffee maker. Just wipe with a soft damp cloth.

• Never immerse the coffee maker in water. It is an electrical appliance.

• The water fill compartment (A) can be reached through the lid (E). Clean when necessary.

• Do not wash the jug and accessories in the dishwasher.


If the water in your area is hard, limescale builds up over time. These deposits may affect correct operation of the appliance. You are recommended to descale the coffeemaker when two buttons (F) and (G) flash simultaneously, which is approximately every 60 cycles. If limescale visibly builds up in the water tank prior to the buttons flashing and you would like to activate the descaling process yourself, you will need to push and hold both buttons (F & G) simultaneously for 2 seconds.

• To descale, always use De’Longhi descaler available at

• Pour 3.4 oz (100 ml) De’Longhi descaler in the water tank and add fresh water up to 8 cup (max) level.

• Place the empty carafe on the warming plate and hold for 2 seconds both the buttons (F & G) simultaneously. The descaling process will begin.

• Once the descaling cycle is complete the lights on the two buttons will turn off.

• Rinse the machine by following the instructions in the “First Use” section on page 6.

• Failure to clean as described above invalidates the Warranty.
