There's nothing quite like a fresh coffee to kick start your day, for a quick pick me up in the afternoon or to enjoy after a relaxing meal. Whether you're partial to an aromatic espresso, frothy cappuccino or enjoy the simple pleasures of a filter coffee there is a Morphy Richards coffee maker to suit your needs.
When using your Café Rico 47003 Espresso Coffee Maker for the first time, it is recommended that you clean the coffee maker thoroughly by operating two or three times with the maximum volume of fresh water (6 cups) but without using the coffee and wash the detachable parts of the machine in warm soapy water.
|Making a perfect espresso coffee|
To make a perfect espresso coffee unscrew the pressure cap by turning it anti-clockwise. Then fill the water tank using your glass jug to measure the volume of water required. The jug is marked with the water levels for 2 cups (minimum), 4 cups and 6 cups (maximum). Always switch the machine off and remove the plug from the socket before filling the water tank. Care should be taken to ensure that the correct quantity of water is placed in the tank, as the machine always uses all the water. Then close the pressure cap tightly by turning it clockwise and place the washable metal filter into the filter holder and add the desired quantity of coffee to the filter using the measuring spoon provided. Special marks on the inside of the filter show the correct levels for 2, 4 and 6 cups of coffee. Using the flat end of the spoon lightly compress the coffee down. Remove excess coffee from the edge of the filter. Position the filter holder underneath the water outlet, push it upwards and turn it to the right into the locked position to fix it onto your coffee machine.
Your machine is fitted with a strength selector which allows you to make LIGHT to STRONG coffee. Set the strength selector mid way between LIGHT and STRONG for MEDIUM strength coffee. Place your glass jug with the lid on the drip tray directly under the spout of the filter holder, ensuring that the jug handle is pointing outwards from the unit. Press the on/off switch to ON and the orange light will glow. The coffee will start to flow from the filter holder spout after about 2 or 3 minutes. Wait until all the water from the water tank has flowed into your glass jug and the green light glows. Set the on/off switch to OFF. When the filtering process is complete remove the glass jug from your coffee maker and pour the coffee into your cups. Unplug machine and allow cooling. Slowly remove the pressure cap. To remove the used coffee grounds, remove the filter holder by turning the handle to the left until you find that the filter holder drops down. Flip the filter retaining clip so that it retains the filter. Turn the filter upside down and knock out the grounds. Flip the retaining clip back along the handle before the next use.
It is advised to start heating your milk ready for frothing several minutes before making coffee to ensure milk is hot. Fill the stainless steel milk jug provided with the required amount of milk. Do not exceed the maximum level or add less than the minimum level. Place the jug on the hot plate and switch on, the orange light will glow. Once the coffee is brewed, the milk is ready to froth. Lift the milk jug up to the milk frother blade. Raise the milk jug ensuring that the frother blade is just under the surface of the milk - this will give the maximum froth. Push and release the milk frother button. TAKE CARE AS THE MILK WILL BE HOT. When the milk is frothy, (which normally takes around 30 seconds), press the milk frother button once more to stop the frother.
Pour the coffee into cups and gently pour or preferably spoon the milk onto the coffee, then sprinkle a little chocolate powder for perfect cappuccino. Turn off the milk frother hot plate by pressing the neon on/off switch. Warning: the stainless steel jug and the hotplate will remain hot for sometime after switching off. The milk frother blade can be removed for easy cleaning by unscrewing the blade. Wash carefully in hot soapy water. It is recommended that you remove the blade immediately after use, as dried milk can be difficult to remove. To replace, insert the stem of the milk frother blade into the mounting hole on the unit and screw into place. There may be some splash back of milk on the underside of the frothing unit. Switch the unit off then simply wipe this area clean with a damp cloth.

est coffee maker I have ever owned ,and I have owned a few in my 69 years.
You would have to be a Zombie not to be able to get a good cup of coffee from this machine!!
It's easy to use, quiet,and easy to clean . Better still it takes up a very small foot print on my worktop.
I can fill up my vacuum coffee cup every day for about 10p, only a fool would pay £3.50 for an 'international high street Label'cup even allowing for the cost of the ''free'' wifi.
Buy and enjoy the coffee and the savings!
The milk frother however is badly designed and works by heating milk on a hotplate and then whisking it with a small electric whisk, which does not reach the bottom of the jug.
I wouldn't reccommend this machine to anyone wishing to make espresso as you can get a better machine for a similar price. However, those looking for a robust machine for making large amounts of filter coffee may find this appealing and replacement parts are easy to come by for this machine from the manufacturers website.
