Product Resource Details

AquaClean filter

The AquaClean filter is designed to reduce limescale deposits in your coffee machine and provide filtered water to preserve the aroma and flavor of each cup of coffee. If you use a series of 8 AquaClean filters as indicated by the machine and in this user manual, you don't have to descale your machine for up to 5000 cups. With each filter you can enjoy up to 625 cups, depending on the selected coffee varieties and the rinsing and cleaning frequencies.

Preparing the AquaClean filter for activation

Before you place the AquaClean filter in the water tank, you need to prepare it for use:

  1. Shake the filter for about 5 seconds (Fig. 2).
  2. Fully immerse the filter upside down in a jug with cold water for at least 30 seconds. Wait until no more air bubbles come out (Fig. 3).
  3. Push the filter onto the filter connection to the lowest possible point. (Fig. 4)

Activating the AquaClean filter

You need to activate every new AquaClean filter that you use. By activating the AquaClean filter, the machine monitors the capacity of the AquaClean filter and the number of filters used. There are 3 ways to activate the AquaClean filter.

  • Activating the AquaClean filter during first installation
    After switching on for the first time, the machine guides you through the first installation steps such as filling the water tank, filling the water circuit and activating the AquaClean filter. Simply follow the instructions on the screen.
  • Activating the AquaClean filter when prompted
    Replace the AquaClean filter when the screen shows the message 'Replace AquaClean filter?'. Then follow the instructions on the screen to activate the filter properly. Replace the AquaClean filter at least every 3 months, even if the machine has not yet indicated that replacement is required.
  • Activating the AquaClean filter at any other time
    You can start using the AquaClean filter at any time by following the instructions below.
  1. Tap the Settings icon and then select 'AquaClean' (Fig. 5).
  2. Select 'new' and when the activation screen appears, press the start/stop
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Brewing drinks

Tap the Drinks icon to enter the 'Drinks' menu. Scroll through the different pages to find your drink. After selecting a drink you can personalize it by adjusting the settings (see 'Personalizing your drinks').

  • Tap the '2x' icon if you want to brew two cups (Fig. 6). The machine automatically carries out two grinding cycles in sequence of the selected drinks.
  • Tap the Profiles icon to brew one of your saved drinks.

Brewing milk-based drinks

  1. Fill the water tank with tap water and fill the bean hopper with beans.
    Tip: Slide the dispensing spout to the uppermost position for easy access to the water tank.
  2. Unscrew the lid of the milk container and fill the milk container with milk (Fig. 9). We advise you to use milk coming directly from the fridge for optimal results.

  7. Press the start/stop button to start brewing the selected drink.
  8. Directly after dispensing the milk, the 'Auto Steam Shoot' is performed. The machine forces steam through the internal milk system to rinse it quickly.
    Tip: You can also use a regular milk carton to brew your milk-based drinks. Place the metal milk tube directly into the milk carton.
