How to perform a cleaning cycle
Fresh water and clean tools are just as essential for creating delicious, cafe-quality coffee as the quality of the coffee beans you use. That's why there are times you have to clean like a barista to be able to brew like one! Fortunately, the Barista Touch™ does the heavy lifting, making a thorough cleaning easy to accomplish. First, tap the cog icon in the upper right corner of the touch screen to open the settings menu. Scroll down to tap on 'Clean Cycle.' Next, empty the drip tray and wash it well before reinserting it into the machine. Then insert the 1-cup basket into the portafilter, and add the grey silicone disc into the basket. Place a cleaning tablet into the disc's center, and then place the portafilter into the group head. Select 'Start' on the touch screen to launch its cleaning cycle. When the screen indicates the cycle is complete, remove the portafilter and check to see if the tablet is thoroughly dissolved. If some of the tablet remains, repeat the process to ensure no residue remains in the system. Finally, remove the portafilter, wash and rinse it, then flush the group head by selecting 'Brew.' Now you can continue enjoying exceptional coffee, cup after cup.
