3 MAKING COFFEE WITH GROUND (N-L-S-V)
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
Mount on filter-holder 10 the one-cup filter 16 or the two-cup filter 17 depending
on whether you wish to make just one espresso or two at the same time.
Fill the filter with ground coffee using the doser spoon 18.
Press the ground coffee in the filter with the tamp 19; after this operation the pressed
coffee surface should be about 1 centimetre below the filter edge.
Insert the filter holder in its lodging and lock it securely by turning it from left to right.
Place one or two cups under the coffee output spouts of the filter holder.
In order to obtain a good Italian-style espresso coffee, grinding is of fundamental importance.
The espresso must be dispensed in approx. 25 seconds and must have, on average, a volume
equivalent to approx. 25 cc (single short button). If the grinding is too coarse, it will produce
an overheated espresso with very little froth. If the grinding is too fine, it will produce
an espresso with little froth. Good quality coffee is obtained by using a fresh, evenly ground
blend (only obtainable if the coffee grinder has sharp blades) used in the correct quantities
(approx. 7 grams per dose).
It is important to have coffee that has been freshly ground because otherwise it rapidly loses
its aroma and the fatty substances contained in it go rancid.
Warm cups contribute considerably to maintaining the quality of the espresso.
58
4 MAKING COFFEE WITH PODS (N-S-V)
1)
2)
3)
4)
Extract a pod from its protective wrapping and insert it in the filter-holder 10.
Insert the filter holder 10 in its lodging and lock it securely by turning it from left to right.
Place one cup under the coffee output spout of the filter holder 10.
Once the coffee has been served, remove filter-holder 10 from its lodging by turning
it anti-clockwise and dispose of the used coffee pod as organic refuse.
5 COFFEE DISPENSING (N)
1) Select the coffee function 22 by turning the selection knob 9 clockwise.
- At this point, if the machine is in optimum condition it will start to make perfect coffee.
- If conditions are not optimum, the stand-by warning light 4 will come on;
after a short interval, which is required in order to give the machine time to optimise
conditions, brewing will start automatically.
2) Once the cups contain the desired amount of coffee, stop dispensing by selecting the
STOP function 21, i.e. turning selection knob 9 anti-clockwise.
- The coffee function 22 is equipped with an automatic stop after 40 seconds of
dispensing, which can be used to obtain long coffee.
- When making the first coffee after having turned on the machine, we recommend
you pre-heat the filter-holder 10 by selecting the coffee function 22 for a short
interval before filling it with the ground coffee or the pod.
6 COFFEE DISPENSING (L)
Pull lever 9 down, wait and release it only when the first drops of coffee start coming out.
The lever will slowly return to its starting position while the coffee will continue coming out.
For perfect coffee, pull the lever down again before it gets to the end of its run.
Repeat this operation until you obtain the amount of coffee required.
7 COFFEE DISPENSING (S-V)
1) Press the button 4.
2) When you have obtained the required amount of coffee in the cup/cups you must press
the button 4 again to stop dispensing.
59
gb
The machine can be set up for using single-dose paper pods by mounting a specific kit
supplied by ELEKTRA.
8 MAKING CAPPUCCINO (N)
Make sure that the cappuccino foamer 11 has been left in a jug of water to prevent
gb
any milk encrustation from clogging the steam outlet holes: this procedure is important
for the safety of the user.
When the steam starts discharging it also produces a small amount of condensate: you must
therefore discharge a small amount of steam before dipping the foamer in the milk in order
to obtain the highest quality cappuccino and avoid any condensate from going into the milk.
1) Prepare a long espresso in a cappuccino cup.
2) Dip the cappuccino foamer 11 into a jug of milk until the milk covers the two lateral
steam outlet holes.
- This is carried out in order to avoid splashes during automatic steam production.
3) Select the cappuccino function 20 with the knob 9 turning it anti-clockwise,
- At this point, if the machine is in optimum condition to whip the milk and create
perfect froth, the steam will start being produced.
- If instead conditions are not optimum, the stand-by warning light 4 comes on;
after an interval going from a few seconds to a maximum of around one minute,
which is the time the machine needs to optimise conditions, steam starts being
produced automatically.
- During the interval the filter-holder 10 will inevitably trickle water, due to water
expanding in the tank as a consequence of the temperature rise needed to
produce steam.
4) Once the required amount of froth has been obtained and the milk has reached the
required temperature, stop the steam production by selecting the STOP function 21, i.e.
turning selection knob 9 clockwise,
- The cappuccino function 20 is equipped with automatic stop after 2 minutes, which
can be used to whip larger amounts of milk.
5) Gently pour milk and froth into the coffee cup with the help of a teaspoon until the cup
is filled to the required level.
6) Sprinkle the froth with cocoa powder as required. Your delicious cappuccino is ready.
7) Keep the cappuccino foamer nozzle 11 in a jug of water so that at least the two lateral
steam outlet holes are covered.
Select the cappuccino function 20 with knob 9 for a few seconds in order to prevent any
milk encrustation from clogging the steam outlet holes.
60
9 MAKING CAPPUCCINO, MILK AND OTHER HOT DRINKS (L-S)
9.1 CAPPUCCINO
