temperature of about 68°F (20°C), milk
at 43°F (6°C) can be stored for 11-12
hours and remain under 55°F (13°C).
(Milk that is warmer than 55°F (13°C)
should not be used because it will not
make good milk froth.)
Milk cannot be stored as long if there is
a warming drawer underneath the
coffee machine.
Interrupt preparation
^ During preparation, tap the OK
button when "Stop" appears in the
display.
Do not fill the container to the rim,
leave a gap of approx. 1" - 1 ½"
(2 - 3 cm) from the top.
Preparation will immediately stop.
If you use ground coffee, only one
serving is prepared at a time. The
appliance always uses the entire
portion of ground coffee loaded into
the funnel, for one beverage.
Make sure to keep the top and seals
of the container clean. Soiling can
cause affect the functioning of the
milk container.
Cold milk is best for creating froth.
Always pre-warm the cup with hot
water, before you prepare a beverage.

Before turning the machine off, or at
the end of the day, flush the water
lines, the brew unit, the spouts and
the milk pipework in order to prevent
the machine from clogging (see
"Cleaning and care").
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.
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.
If the slide control will not move:
^ Close the machine and dispense a
cup of coffee.
Then try to move the slide control
again.
– 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.

Settings
Amount of coffee
Pre-brewing
The amount of coffee will determine
both the strength and the crema of your
brewed coffee.
During the pre-brew step, the freshly
ground coffee is first moistened with hot
water. After a short steeping period, the
remaining water is then forced through
the moistened coffee at high pressure.
This process produces a much more
intense coffee aroma.
Depending on the type of coffee, the
ideal amount ranges from
approximately 0.2 ounces and 0.5
ounces (6 g to 14 g per) cup. The
higher the value, the stronger the
prepared espresso, coffee, latte
macchiato, or cappuccino will be.
The crema is also influenced by the
amount of coffee.
– 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 amount
of coffee might be too much.

WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
GROUNDED
Important
All electrical work should be
performed by a qualified electrician
in strict accordance with national
and local safety regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous.
Verify that the voltage, load and circuit
rating information found on the data
