The Linea Micra is a compact and easy-to-use espresso machine designed for the barista at home. One key aspect of the machine’s simplcity is the self-contained water reservoir. Located behind the drip tray, the reservoir is easily-accessed for quick refilling and easy removal. This post and accompanying video will guide you through the process.

Refilling the Linea Micra Reservoir

To refill the Micra’s reservoir, follow these simple steps:

1. Locate the refill hole: On top of the reservoir, you will find a small hole covered by a lid. This lid allows for easy access when refilling the tank.

2. Add water while attached: It is recommended to keep the reservoir attached to the machine while refilling. Simply pour water through the top hole, filling only up to the fill-line.

3. Adjust the angle: To achieve a better pouring angle, pull the reservoir out slightly while adding water. This will give you more control and prevent any spills or splashes.

Removing the Linea Micra Reservoir:

Removing the reservoir from your Linea Micra is a straightforward process. Follow these steps:

1. Slide the reservoir out slightly: Gently slide the reservoir out, creating enough space to access the water draft (clear straw) attached to the tank’s lid.

2. Remove the water draft: Once the reservoir is partially pulled out, carefully detach the water draft (looks like a clear straw) from the lid. Be gentle, but firm to avoid damaging the draft. This will allow you to fully remove the reservoir.

3. Firmly pull out the reservoir: With the water draft detached, continue pulling the reservoir all the way out.

Note: Avoid pulling the hose and reservoir too far out before removing the water draft. Doing so may cause difficulties when repositioning it back correctly. If you encounter any issues, consult our technical support for assistance.

Cleaning the reservoir: If you need to clean the reservoir, wipe it out with a clean damp microfiber cloth. Avoid using a dishwasher or harsh cleaning products on the reservoir’s interior to prevent damage.
