TURN THE APPLIANCE on by pressing the ON/OFF BUTTON AND ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER TO THE APPLI ANCE WITHOUT ADDING GROUND COFFEE. TO ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER, position it under the boiler outlet with the handle towards the left, push it 1 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). 5 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. 1 2 5. PROCEED AS in points 5, 6 and 7 in the previous paragraph. 7 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. PUCCINO TUBE FIRMLY HOT WATER PRODUCTION 1. TURN THE APPLIANCE ON by pressing the ON/OFF button. Wait until the OK indicator light comes on. 4. TO INTERRUPT DELIVERY OF HOT WATER, close the steam knob by rotating clockwise and press the coﬀee button again. (You should not run oﬀ hot water for more than 45 seconds at a time). 2. PLACE A RECIPIENT under the cappuccino maker. 3. PRESS THE COFFEE BUTTON and at the same time turn the steam knob anticlockwise. Water comes out of the cappuccino maker; 9 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 1. BEFORE PERFORMING ANY CLEANING operations, leave the appliance to cool down and unplug from the mains socket. 2. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS OR ABRASIVE cleaning products to clean the appliance. A soft, damp cloth is suﬃcient. 3. EMPTY AND WASH the drip tray and drip mesh frequently. 4. CLEAN THE WATER TANK regularly. IMPORTANT: Never immerse the appliance in water.
