Adjusting the coffee grinder
The finer the coffee beans are ground
determines the strength of the coffee
and the quality of the crema.
To prevent machine damage adjust
the coffee grinder one level at a
time and let the beans grind before
adjusting another notch. Otherwise
the machine will be damaged.
The grinder should be adjusted:
– If the espresso flows too quickly into
the cup, the pressure cannot be built
up because the beans have been
ground too coarsely. The grinder
should be adjusted to a finer setting.
– If the espresso only trickles into the
cup, the beans have been ground
too fine and the coffee will be bitter.
The grinder should be adjusted to a
coarser setting.
– If the crema is evenly colored but
pale, the ground coffee is too
coarse.
– If the crema is very dark brown on
one side, graduating almost to white
on the other, the ground coffee is too
fine.
20
To adjust the grinder setting
^ Push the slide control to the left for a
finer grind or to the right for a coarser
grind.
You should be able to feel the notches
when moving the slide control.

Grind amount
Pre-brewing
The grind amount can be set,
depending on the coffee type, between
0.2 ounces and 0.5 ounces
(6 - 14 grams). The more the coffee is
ground the stronger the espresso,
coffee or cappuccino will be.
During pre-brewing a small amount of
water is released onto the ground
coffee. After a short time the remaining
water is pushed through the ground
coffee at a high pressure.
The crema is also influenced by the
grind amount.
– If the crema has an even but
white/yellow coloring, the ground
amount might be too little.
– If the crema is dark brown to black in
color on the one side and almost
white on the other side, the grind
amount might be too much.

water hardness will determine how
frequently the unit must be descaled to
maintain the coffee system properly.
The machine monitors the volume of
water passing through it in conjunction
with the hardness of the water and will
indicate when descaling is necessary.
Your local water authority can tell you
the hardness of your tap water or you
can measure it yourself using the
enclosed test strip.
^ Dip the test strip in the water for
1 second and shake off any
remaining water. The result is visible
in about 1 minute.
If the water hardness is greater than
