ADJUSTMENTS
The machine that you have bought allows
for certain adjustments that will permit
you to use it to its full potential.
Saeco Adapting System
Coffee is a natural product and its characteristics may change according to its
origin, blend and roast. The Saeco coffee
machine is equipped with a self-adjusting
system that allows the use of all types of
coffee beans available on the market (non
caramelized).
• The machine automatically adjusts
itself in order to optimize the extraction of the coffee, ensuring perfect
compression of the beans to obtain a
creamy espresso coffee that will release
all the aromas, regardless of the type of
coffee used.
• The optimization process is a learning
process that requires the brewing of a
certain number of coffees to allow the
machine to adjust the compactness of
the ground coffee.
• Attention should be given to special blends, which require grinder
adjustments in order to optimize the
extraction of the coffee (see section
“Coffee Grinder Adjustment”).
