The lights on my L'OR BARISTA coffee machine come on.

Possible solutions

The lights on your L'OR BARISTA coffee machine will help you use, clean, and maintain your machine. Please find below the meanings of the different lights on the L'OR BARISTA machine:

  1. The on/off button flashes quickly: the water tank is empty or incorrectly positioned.
  2. The selected coffee button flashes slowly: the machine is brewing your coffee.
  3. The selected coffee button flashes quickly: the type of coffee selected is in "programming" mode or new parameters are saved.
  4. The lights of the Ristretto and Lungo buttons flash simultaneously after the coffee has been brewed: this means that it is time to descale the machine to avoid any build-up of limescale that could clog the circuit.

Temperature

The coffee prepared with the L'OR BARISTA system isn’t hot enough.

Several factors can influence the temperature of the coffee after preparation. These tips allow you to optimize the temperature of your coffee prepared with the L'OR BARISTA machine.

Cup size and shape

Thick-walled mugs absorb more heat than thin-walled mugs. For hotter coffee, use a thin-walled cup. Also, to get really hot coffee, don't use a cup that's too big for the coffee you're making. Whenever possible, adjust the size of your cup to the size of the coffee you are brewing.

Cup and machine temperature

Place a cup under the coffee dispensing nozzles and press one of the coffee brewing buttons without using a capsule to preheat both the cup and the machine. You will notice that the coffee will stay hot longer.

Using milk

By adding cold milk to your coffee, you lower the temperature of your coffee. For a hot latte drink, pre-heat the milk before pouring it into your coffee.

Limescale build-up

If limescale has accumulated in the internal circuits of the coffee machine, this can reduce the temperature of the coffee flowing out. To avoid this, descale your L'OR BARISTA coffee machine regularly. Note: the Lungo and Ristretto buttons will start flashing after brewing a coffee to let you know that it is time to descale your machine. You will find instructions on how to descale in the user manual supplied with your L'OR BARISTA machine, or you can watch the video below.
