I MPORT A NT S A F E G U A R D S
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following.
• Read all instructions carefully.
• Make sure the voltage of your electrical system corresponds to the voltage shown on the
bottom of the machine.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
• To protect against fire, electrical shock and personal injury, do not immerse cord, plug or
appliance in water or other liquid.
• Keep the appliance out of the reach of children and do not leave appliance unattended
while in operation.
• Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
• Do not operate with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions, or has
been damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service
facility for examination, repair or adjustment.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may result in
fire, electrical shock, or personal injury.
• Do not use outdoors.
• Make sure the power cord does not hang over the edge of the table or counter-top to avoid
getting accidentally caught or entangled.
• Do not place the appliance or its electrical parts on or near electric stoves, cooking surfaces, or gas burners.
• Plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, first turn machine “off”, then remove plug
from wall outlet.
• Do not use the appliance for other than the intended use. This appliance is to be utilized
for domestic use only. The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage caused
by improper, incorrect, or irresponsible use.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove the cover or the exterior of the
unit. Don’t attempt to repair or modify the machine, doing so will void the warranty. Repair should
be done by authorized service personnel only!
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
THIS APPLIANCE IS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
short cord instructions
A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping
over a longer cord.
- Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is
exercised in their use.
- If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the electrical
rating of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3- wire, grounding type cord, the extension
should be a GROUNDING TYPE 3 - WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will
not drape over the counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
- Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still
fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the polarized plug.

or two cups
) (fig. 9 and 16). 6. Preparation begins. A progress bar appears
on the display and gradually advances as the
procedure progresses (fig. 17).
Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is

Programming the long “my coffee” quantity
The appliance is set by default to automatically
deliver ≃ 3.4 oz of LONG coffee. To modify this
quantity, proceed as follows:
1. Press the
icon repeatedly (fig. 8) until
“MY COFFEE” is displayed.
2. Press the LONG
icon (fig. 10) until “Program quantity” is displayed, then release.
The machine starts delivering the coffee and
the LONG icon flashes.
3. As soon as the coffee in the cup reaches the
required level, press the LONG icon again.
The quantity set has now been programmed.
Regulating the coffee mill
The coffee mill is preset in the factory to prepare
coffee correctly and should not require regulating
initially.
However, if after making the first few coffees
you find that delivery is either too fast or too
slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected
by regulating the grinding adjustment knob (fig.
11).
Information:
• While the machine is making coffee, delivery
can be interrupted at any moment by pressing
the lit cup icon.
• For a hotter coffee, before delivery rinse the
appliance through by pressing the
icon
and confirming with the OK icon. Hot water
flows out of the coffee spouts and heats the
internal circuit of the machine so that the
coffee delivered will be hotter.
• For an even hotter coffee, heat the cups by
rinsing them with the hot water.
• If the coffee is delivered in drops, too fast
and not creamy enough or too cold, read the
tips in the “Troubleshooting” section on page
22.
Important! The grinding coarseness
regulator must only be turned when the coffee
mill is in operation (when you hear the grinder
in motion).
For slower coffee delivery
and a creamier coffee, turn
one click towards “1” (finer
ground coffee).
Making long coffee using coffee beans
For more rapid coffee delivery (not in drops), turn one
click towards “7” (coarser
ground coffee).
Information:
When this function is
activated, a long coffee similar to drip coffee is
obtained.
Important! Do not use caramelized or
candied coffee beans as they could stick to the
coffee mill and make it unusable.
Information: These adjustments will only
be evident after at least two cups of coffee have
been made.
1. Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 12).
2. Adjust the height of the spout according to
14
MAKING DRINKS WITH MILK
the cup used. Put the cup for long coffee
under the spouts (fig. 18);
3. Choose the strength by hitting the
and size by hitting the
.
4. Press the LONG icon (fig. 10). Preparation
begins. A progress bar appears on the display
and gradually advances as the procedure
progresses.
Filling and attaching the milk container
1. Turn the lid of the milk container clockwise
until it becomes noticeably difficult to turn,
then remove the lid (fig. 20).
2. Fill the milk container with a sufficient
quantity of milk, not exceeding the MAX level
marked on the handle (fig. 21).
Information:
• While the machine is making coffee, delivery
can be interrupted at any moment by pressing
the LONG icon.
• Only one cup of long coffee can be made at a
time.
• When delivering more than 4.2 oz, the
appliance automatically grinds more coffee
halfway through delivery.
Information! We recommend using skim
or 2% milk at refrigerator temperature (about
41°F). To avoid milk with poor froth or large
bubbles, always clean the milk lid and hot water
nozzle as described in the section “Cleaning the
milk container” on page 19.
3. Make sure the milk intake tube is correctly
inserted in the bottom of the milk container
lid (fig. 22).
4. Replace the milk container lid and turn
counterclockwise as far as it will go until you
hear it click.
5. Remove the hot water spout from the nozzle
(fig. 23).
6. Attach the container to the nozzle and push as
far as it will go (fig. 24). The machine emits
a beep when milk container is attached
correctly (if the beep function is enabled).
7. Place a sufficiently large cup under the coffee
spouts and frothed milk spout.
