SHORT CORD INSTRUCTIONS
-
-
6
A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping
over a longer cord.
Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care
is exercised in their use.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the
electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3- wire, grounding type cord,
the extension should be a GROUNDING TYPE 3 - WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over.
Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should
still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
Read this instruction booklet carefully before
installing and using the appliance. This is the only
way to ensure the best results and maximum safety
for the user.

HOW TO MAKE ESPRESSO COFFEE
FILLING THE WATER TANK
Remove the water tank by pulling sideways and lifting
the intake tubes out of the water (fig. 1).
Rinse and fill with clean cold water (fig 2). Check the
water level by viewing the floating ball. Replace the
water tank in the housing, making sure the tubes are in
the water.
The water tank can also be filled by extracting it just
enough to pour in water directly from a jug.
PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT
To obtain espresso coffee at the right temperature, the
coffee machine must be preheated. It is, therefore,
recommended to press the ON/OFF button (fig. 3) at
least 15 minutes before preparing the espresso,
making sure the filter holder is attached to the
appliance (check that the steam knob is closed).
To attach the filter holder, position it under the boiler
outlet with the handle towards the left (fig. 4), push it
upwards while at the same time rotating the handle
towards the right. Rotate firmly. Wait for 15 minutes,
then make the coffee as described in the following
section.
Alternatively, you can preheat more rapidly by
proceeding as follows:
1.Press the ON/OFF button (fig. 3) and attach the filter
holder to the appliance without adding ground
coffee.
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 (fig. 5),
then immediately press the coffee button (fig. 6). Run
the water off until the OK indicator light goes out,
then interrupt delivery by pressing the coffee button
again (fig. 6).
4.Empty the cup, detach the filter holder and empty out
the hot water.
(It is normal for a small and harmless puff of steam to
be emitted when removing the filter holder).

HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING THE
PATENTED FILTER HOLDER FOR GROUND COFFEE
1.After preheating the appliance as described in the
previous section, place the ground coffee filter in the
filter holder. Make sure the tab is correctly inserted
in the slot as shown in fig. 7, otherwise you will not
be able to attach the filter holder to the appliance.
The appliance comes with two filters; the small filter
should be used for one coffee and the large filter for
two coffees.
2.To make a single coffee only, place one level measure
of ground coffee, about 0.24 ounces (7 grams), in the
filter (fig. 8). To prepare two coffees, place two loosely
filled measures of ground coffee (0.42 ounces/6+6
grams) in the filter. Fill the filter a little at a time to
prevent the ground coffee from overflowing.
IMPORTANT: to ensure correct operation, before
placing the ground coffee in the filter holder, clean the
filter of residues of ground coffee from the previous
infusion.
3.Distribute the ground coffee evenly and tamp lightly
with the tamper (fig. 9).
Note: Correct tamping of the ground coffee is
essential to obtain a good espresso. If tamping is
excessive, espresso delivery will be slow and the
crema will be dark. If tamping is too light, coffee
delivery will be too rapid and the froth will be skimpy
and light colored.
4.Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filter
holder and attach to the appliance. Rotate firmly
(fig. 4) to avoid water leaking out.
5.Place the cup or cups under the filter holder spouts
(fig. 10). It is recommended to heat the cups before
making the coffee by rinsing them with a little hot
water or placing them to warm on the cup storage
tray for at least 15-20 minutes (fig. 26).
6.Make sure the OK indicator light (fig. 5) is on (if it is
off, wait until it comes on), then press the coffee
button (fig. 6). Once the required quantity of
espresso has been obtained, interrupt delivery by
pressing the coffee button again (fig. 6).
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
espresso.
8.To dispose of the used coffee, lock the filter in place
using the lever incorporated in the handle then empty
the grounds by turning the filter holder upside down
and tapping (fig. 11).
9.To turn the coffee machine off, press the ON/OFF
button (fig. 3).
IMPORTANT: the first time the appliance is used, all
accessories 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.
NOTE: use pods conforming to the ESE standard,
indicated on the pack by the following symbol:
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 1 cup ground coffee or pod filter in
the filter holder, making sure the filter is correctly
inserted in the slot as shown in fig. 7.
3.Insert a pod, centering it as close as possible on the
filter (fig. 12). Always follow the instructions on the
pod packaging to position the pod on the filter
correctly.
4.Attach the filter holder to the appliance. Always
rotate as far as it will go (fig. 4).
5.Proceed as in points 5, 6 and 7 in the previous
section.
HOW TO MAKE CAPPUCCINO
1.Prepare the espresso coffees as described in the
previous sections, using sufficiently large cups.
2.Press the steam button (fig. 13) and wait for the
steam indicator light to come on (fig. 13). The OK
indicator light indicates that the boiler has reached
the ideal temperature for steam production.
3.In the meantime, fill a container with about 3.5
ounces (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
container, bear in mind that the milk increases in
volume by 2 or 3 times.
NOTE: IT IS RECOMMENDED TO USE SKIM MILK AT
REFRIGERATOR TEMPERATURE.
4.Place the container with milk under the cappuccino
frother.
5.Dip the cappuccino frother into the container with
milk (fig. 14), taking care not to immerse the raised
line on the cappuccino frother (indicated by the
arrow in fig. 15). Turn the steam knob at least a half
turn counter-clockwise (fig. 16). Steam is given off by
the cappuccino frother, giving the milk a creamy
frothy appearance. To obtain a creamier froth, dip
the cappuccino frother into the milk and rotate the
container with slow movements from the bottom
upwards.
6.When the required temperature is reached
(140°F/60°C is ideal), interrupt steam delivery by
rotating the steam knob clockwise and at the same time
pressing the steam button (fig. 13).
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.
Note: To prepare more than one cappuccino, first
make all the espressos then at the end prepare the
frothed milk for all the cappuccinos.
IMPORTANT: always clean the cappuccino frother
after use. Proceed as follows:
1.Discharge a little steam for a few seconds by rotating
the steam knob (fig. 16). This empties any milk left
inside the steam tube.
IMPORTANT: it is recommended to follow this
procedure each time you make cappuccino to avoid
milk stagnating in the steam tube.
2.With one hand, hold the steam tube firmly and with
the other unscrew the cappuccino frother itself by
rotating clockwise and pulling downwards (fig. 17).
3.Remove the nozzle from the steam tube by pulling it
downwards (fig. 18).
4.Wash the cappuccino frother and steam nozzle
thoroughly with warm water.
5.Make sure the two holes indicated by the arrows in fig.
19 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 frother by inserting it and
rotating counter-clockwise.
HOT WATER PRODUCTION
1.Turn the appliance on by pressing the ON/OFF
button (fig. 3). Wait until the OK indicator light
comes on (fig. 5).
2.Place a container under the cappuccino frother.
3.Press the coffee button (fig. 6) and at the same time
open the steam knob. Hot water is delivered from the
cappuccino frother.
4.To interrupt delivery of hot water, close the steam knob
by rotating clockwise and press the coffee button again
(fig. 6).
