The L'OR Barista system is backed by a two-year limited warranty. For full warranty details, please refer to the Important Information and Warranty document which can be downloaded here.

Water tank not positioned correctly
Make sure that the water tank is correctly placed onto the system.

Water tank is empty
Your L'OR Barista produces a louder humming sound when there is no water left in the water tank. Fill the water tank with fresh tap water. Note: It is normal for the system to produce a sound as it fills with water for the first time and when the water tank is low. The system produces a humming sound when the internal water system is not completely full. Once water is flowing, it produces a less loud humming sound.

Air trapped in the water system
When there is air in the internal water system instead of water flowing, a humming sound is normal. When the system dispenses water, it produces less loud humming sounds. To solve this:
1. Turn on the system
2. Remove the capsule from the capsule compartment
3. With a mug or container placed below the spouts, press the large drink button to fill the water system with water.

Once completed, dispose of the water and insert a capsule to try again.

Different capsule
The L'OR Barista is designed for L'OR capsules. Other brands of capsules might cause a difference in sound. This will not affect your system.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Make sure you are descaling the system when you see the small drink and large drink buttons are flashing at the same time after brewing.

Descaling cleanses the internal system of limescale build-up, which may be increasing the sound that your system is making while brewing.

Descale your system regularly to prevent this from happening.

Please refer to the Descaling section of the Directions for Use for full details.

The L'OR Barista system automatically indicates when it is time to descale by flashing the small and large buttons after brewing.

Descaling your system will allow you to obtain optimal coffee taste, temperature, and volume.

The L'OR Barista system descaling agent descales the system without damaging it, it can be purchased by contacting our customer service team. You need half a bottle for one descaling procedure and can store the other half for the next descaling procedure.

For more information, refer to the Directions for Use.

Please refer to the Descaling section of the Directions for Use for full details or watch the video on our Care and Use Page.

Descale the system when the small drink and large drink buttons are flashing at the same time. The descaling procedure takes up to 40 minutes and consists of a descaling cycle and a rinsing cycle. Do not interrupt the descaling procedure.

Why to descale
Descaling is essential for the following reasons:
• It prolongs the life of your L'OR Barista coffee & espresso system
• It ensures maximum cup volume
• It ensures maximum coffee temperature
• The system produces less sound during brewing
• It prevents malfunctioning
 

If the descaling procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue remains behind in the system. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the system.
Descaling procedure
Note: If something goes wrong during the descaling procedure, e.g. you accidentally interrupt the descaling cycle, you have to restart the descaling procedure from step 1.

1. Press the on/off button to switch on the system.
2. Pour half a bottle of L'OR Barista liquid descaler into the water tank.
3. Fill up the water tank with fresh tap water.
4. Make sure that there is no capsule in the capsule compartment.
5. Close the lever.
6. Place a bowl with a minimum capacity of 1.5 liters / 51oz on the lower drip tray under the coffee dispensing spout to collect the descaling solution.
7. Press the small drink and large drink buttons briefly at the same time.
8. The small drink button starts to flash quickly. Press the small drink button to activate the descaling cycle. The system dispenses the entire descaling solution at regular intervals. This takes up to 30 minutes. When the large drink button starts to flash quickly again, the first phase of the descaling cycle has finished.
9. Remove and empty the bowl. Place the bowl back onto the lower drip tray under the coffee dispensing spout.
10. Remove the water tank and rinse it under the tap. Fill the water tank with cold tap water and place it back onto the system.
11. Press the large drink button to start the flushing cycle. Note: The water tank will be emptied without interruption. The flushing cycle lasts about 3 minutes.
12. When the flushing cycle has finished, the small drink and large drink buttons flash a few times. Note: It is normal that some water remains behind in the water tank after the descaling procedure.

The system switches off. The descaling procedure is finished.

Yes, the program is free; just order your kit. We recommend adding to a coffee order to avoid possible shipping charges. Learn more and order your recycling kit.

For best results please consult the product packaging for the suggested brew strength. You will find this printed in Gold.

Espresso intensity up to 8: we recommend brewing as Espresso (1.3oz/40ml)

Espresso intensity 9 and higher: we recommend brewing a smaller Ristretto size (0.8oz/25ml) or Espresso size (1.3oz/40ml) according to your personal tastes.

We recommend a larger Lungo size (3.7oz/110ml) for all intensities.

n average, the drink size button chosen does not determine the amount of caffeine in your beverage. The amount of caffeine in L'OR Espresso and L'OR coffee capsules varies per variety. This figure depends on the quantity of coffee contained in the capsule, the quantity of Robusta used in the blend (Robusta contains higher levels of caffeine than Arabica) and natural fluctuations in the coffee according to the season (however, this has a limited effect).

Some factors may influence the coffee temperature after brewing. Use these tips to improve the coffee temperature of your L'OR Barista system.

Cup size and shape
Thick-walled cups absorb more heat than thin-walled cups. Try using a thin-walled cup to improve the coffee temperature. Also, avoid using cups that are too big in comparison to the amount of coffee that you are making. Try to match the amount of coffee with the cup size.

Cup and system temperature
Place your cup under the spout and make a coffee without using a capsule to preheat the system and cup. Dispose of the water and brew as normal. You will notice that the coffee will stay hot for a longer period.

Use of milk
Adding refrigerated milk to your coffee can reduce the overall coffee temperature. Try pre-heating the milk before adding it to your coffee.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Make sure you are descaling the system when you see the small drink and large drink buttons are flashing at the same time after brewing. Descaling prolongs the life of your L'OR Barista coffee & espresso system and ensures maximum coffee temperature by cleansing the internal system of limescale build-up.

You can find the descaling instructions in the Quick Start Guide that came with your L'OR Barista system or visit our Care & Use page.

Leaking from the bottom
If your system is leaking from the bottom, the water tank may not be correctly positioned. Remove the water tank and then reposition the water tank back on and see if this helps. It may also happen that water is spilled while putting back the water tank.

Leaking from the spout
A small amount of coffee may drip from the spouts after the system has finished brewing, this is normal. You can reduce the amount of drip by opening the lever after your coffee or espresso is finished brewing.

The spout of the L'OR BARISTA system is removable and washable to ensure the best quality and coffee taste. If your spout is leaking, make sure that you have correctly assembled the two-piece coffee dispensing spout by following below steps:
1. Remove the two-piece coffee dispensing spout by pulling it straight down
2. Reassemble the two parts by inserting the grey piece into the black piece.
3. Attach the spout by pushing both pieces upwards into the appliance until they 'click' into place.

Please refer to the Cleaning and maintenance section of the Directions for Use for full details.

Full capsule drawer
You are not able to open the lever if the capsule drawer is full. Empty the capsule drawer and try again.
