upwards
and at the
2
same time rotate the
handle firmly towards the right.
Check that the steam knob is closed.
2. PLACE A CUP UNDER THE FILTER HOLDER. Use the
same cup as will be used to prepare the coffee
in order to preheat it.
3. WAIT FOR THE OK INDICATOR
LIGHT to come on, then immediately press the coffee knob.
Run the water off until the OK
indicator light goes out, then interrupt delivery by pressing the coffee
button again.
4. EMPTY THE CUP. Wait until the OK
indicator light comes on again then repeat the
same operation. (It is normal for a small and
harmless puff of steam to be given off when
removing the filter holder).

HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING THE
FILTER HOLDER FOR GROUND COFFEE
1. AFTER PREHEATING the appliance as described
above, place the ground coffee filter
in the filter holder, making sure the
projection is correctly inserted in
the slot. Use the smaller filter to
make one coffee or the larger filter to make two coffees.
2. TO MAKE A SINGLE COFFEE ONLY, place one level
measure (about 7 g) of ground coffee in the filter. To prepare two coffees, place two loosely filled
measures (about 6+6 g)
of ground coffee in the filter. Fill the filter a little at a time to prevent the
ground coffee from overflowing.
IMPORTANT: for correct operation, before
adding the ground coffee to the filter holder,
clean the filter from residues of ground coffee
from the previous infusion.
3. DISTRIBUTE THE GROUND COFFEE evenly and press
lightly with the
presser
NB: Correct
pressing of the
ground coffee
is essential to
obtain a
good espresso. If pressing is excessive, coffee delivery will be slow and the
froth will be dark. If pressing is too light, coffee
delivery will be too rapid and the froth will be
skimpy and light coloured.
4. REMOVE ANY
EXCESS COFFEE
from the rim
of the filter hold1
er and
attach the fil2
ter holder to the appliance. Rotate firmly to avoid leaks of
water.
6
5. PLACE THE CUP or cups under the filter holder
spouts.
You are recommended to
heat the cups
before making the coffee by rinsing
them with a little
hot water.
6. MAKE SURE THE OK LIGHT IS ON
(if off, wait until it comes on),
then press the coffee button.
When the required quantity of
coffee has been run off, press
the same button again. (You should
not run off coffee for more than 45
seconds at a time).
7. TO REMOVE THE FILTER HOLDER, rotate the handle
from right to left.
IMPORTANT: to avoid splashes, never remove
the filter holder while the appliance is delivering coffee.
8. TO ELIMINATE THE USED COFFEE GROUNDS, block
the filter in place using the lever incorporated in the handle and empty
the coffee by turning the filter holder upside down and
tapping.
9. TO TURN THE COFFEE MACHINE OFF,
press the ON/OFF button.
IMPORTANT: the first time the
appliance is used, all accessories
and the internal circuits must be
washed through by making at least
five coffees without using ground coffee.
HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING PODS
1. PREHEAT THE APPLIANCE as described in the section “PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT”, making
sure the filter holder is attached. This obtains a
hotter coffee.
NB: Use pods conforming to the
ESE standard indicated on the
pack with the following logo:
THE ESE STANDARD is a system accepted by leading pod producers
and enables espresso coffee to be prepared
simply and cleanly.
2. PLACE THE SMALL FILTER (1 cup or pods)
in the filter holder, making sure the
projection is correctly inserted in
the slot.
3. INSERT A POD, centring it as far as possible
on the filter. Always follow the instructions on the pod pack to position the
pod on the filter correctly.
4. ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER to the appliance. Always rotate
as far as it will
go.

HOW TO MAKE CAPPUCCINO COFFEE
1. PREPARE THE ESPRESSO COFFEES as described in
the previous paragraphs, using sufficiently
large cups.
2. PRESS THE STEAM BUTTON and wait
for the OK light to come on. This indicates that the boiler has reached
the ideal temperature for steam
production.
3. IN THE MEANTIME, fill a recipient with about 100 grams of
milk for each cappuccino to be
prepared. The milk must be at
refrigerator temperature (not
hot!). In choosing the size of the recipient, bear
in mind that the milk doubles or triples
in volume.
NB: YOU ARE RECOMMENDED TO USE
SEMISKIMMED MILK AT REFRIGERATOR
TEMPERATURE.
4. PLACE THE RECIPIENT containing the
milk under the cappuccino maker.
5. DIP THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER into
the milk for about 5 mm and
turn the steam knob anticlockwise, taking care not to
immerse the raised line on the
cappuccino maker (indicated by
the arrow).
Turn the steam knob at least a half turn anticlockwise. Steam is discharged from the cappuccino maker, giving the milk a creamy frothy
appearance. To obtain a creamier froth, dip the
cappuccino maker into the milk and rotate the
container with slow movements from the bottom upwards.
8
6. WHEN THE REQUIRED TEMPERATURE
(60°C is ideal), interrupt
steam delivery by rotating the
steam knob clockwise and at the
same time pressing
the steam button.
IS REACHED
7. POUR THE FROTHED MILK into the cups containing the espresso coffee prepared previously.
The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and,
if desired, sprinkle the froth with a little cocoa
powder.
NB: To prepare more than one cappuccino,
first make all the coffees then at the end prepare the frothed milk for all the cappuccinos.
NB: to make coffee again after the milk has
been frothed, cool down the boiler first or the
coffee will be burnt. To cool it, place a container under the boiler outlet, press the steam button and run off water until the OK light goes
out. Make the coffee as described in the previous paragraphs.
IMPORTANT: always clean the cappuccino
maker after use. Proceed as follows:
1. DISCHARGE A LITTLE STEAM for a few seconds by
rotating the
steam
knob.
This
empties any
milk left
inside the
steam spout.
IMPORTANT: To ensure hygiene, you are recommended to follow
this procedure each time you make cappuccino to avoid milk stagnating in the milk circuit.
3. REMOVE THE NOZZLE from the steam
tube by pulling it downwards.
4. WASH THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER and
steam nozzle thoroughly with
warm water.
5. MAKE SURE the two holes shown
in are not blocked. If necessary,
clean with a pin.
6. REPLACE THE STEAM NOZZLE by inserting it onto the steam tube
and rotating firmly towards the
top of the tube.
7. REPLACE THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER by
inserting it and rotating anticlockwise.
2. WITH ONE HAND, HOLD THE CAPand with the
other unscrew the cappuccino
maker itself by rotating clockwise and extracting downwards.

(You should not run off hot water
for more than 45 seconds at a time).

the plastic disk. Make sure to insert the pin on the plastic disk into
the hole in the gasket indicated by
the arrow.
Replace the assembly in the steel
filter container, making sure the
pin is inserted in the hole in the
support.
Finally, screw on the cap by
turning clockwise. Failure to
clean as described above invalidates the guarantee.
CLEANING THE BOILER OUTLET

6. SCREW THE BOILER OUTLET BACK ON. Failure to
clean as described above invalidates the guarantee.
2. USING A SCREWDRIVER, unscrew the screw fixing
the espresso boiler outlet filter
DESCALING
YOU ARE RECOMMENDED TO DESCALE the coffee machine about every 200 coffees or a maximum
of every two months.
YOU SHOULD USE A COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE PRODUCT SPECIFICALLY FOR DESCALING ESPRESSO COFFEE MACHINES.
IF SUCH A PRODUCT IS NOT AVAILABLE, proceed as follows.
1. FILL THE TANK with half a litre of water.
2. DISSOLVE 2 spoonfuls (about 30 grams) of citric acid (obtainable from chemist’s or drug
stores)
3. PRESS THE ON/OFF BUTTON and wait for the OK
indicator light to come on.
4. MAKE SURE the filter holder is not attached
and position a recipient under the boiler outlet.
5. PRESS THE COFFEE BUTTON, half empty the tank
by turning the steam knob every now and
then to run off a little solution. Stop run-off by
pressing the button again.
6. TURN THE APPLIANCE OFF.
7. LEAVE THE SOLUTION TO WORK for 15 minutes
then turn the appliance on again.
8. PRESS THE COFFEE BUTTON to empty the tank
completely.
9. TO ELIMINATE RESIDUES of solution and scale,
rinse the tank well, fill with clean water (without citric acid) and replace in position.
10. PRESS THE COFFEE BUTTON and run the water
off until the tank is completely empty
11. INTERRUPT water run-off and repeat operations 9, 10 and 11 again. Repair of damage to
