10. MAKING COFFEE
10.1 Selecting the coffee taste
To obtain delivery not a drop at a time,
turn one click clockwise towards “7”.
For fuller bodied creamier coffee, turn
one click anticlockwise towards “1”
(do not turn more than one click at
a time otherwise the coffee could be
delivered a drop at a time).
Turn the coffee taste selection knob (B9) to select the required
taste. Turning it clockwise increases the quantity of coffee beans
the appliance will grind and therefore the strength of the coffee
obtained.
These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of
coffee have been made.
If this adjustment does not obtain the desired result, turn the
knob another click.
•
•
10.4 Tips for a hotter coffee:
Please note :
The first time you use the appliance, you will need to make
a number of coffees to identify the correct knob position
through trial and error.
Make sure not to turn the knob too far clockwise, otherwise the coffee may be delivered too slowly (a drop at a
time), particularly when making two cups of coffee.
For hotter coffee, you should:
• before delivering the coffee, perform a rinse cycle by pressing the
button (B14). Hot water is delivered from
the coffee spout (A18), heating the internal circuits of the
appliance and thus raising the coffee temperature.
• warm the cups by rinsing them with hot water (using the
hot water function).
10.2 Selecting the quantity of coffee in the cup
10.5 Making coffee using coffee beans
Adjust the coffee quantity selection knob (B8) to set the required quantity.
Important!
Do not use caramelised or candied coffee beans as they could
stick to the coffee mill and make it unusable.
1.
2. 3.
Fill the container with coffee beans (A3-fig. 8).
Place under the coffee spouts (A18):
- 1 cup, if you want 1 coffee (fig. 9);
- 2 cups, if you want 2 coffees.
Lower the spouts as near as possible to the cup. This makes
a creamier coffee (fig. 10).
4. Press the button corresponding to the number of coffees
required (1 cup
B3-fig. 11 or 2 cups
B5fig. 12).
5. Preparation begins and the
(B2) or
(B4)
light stays on until delivery is complete.
Turning it clockwise increases the amount of coffee obtained.
Please note :
The first time you use the appliance, you will need to make a
number of coffees to identify the correct knob position through
trial and error.
10.3 Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is set by default to prepare coffee correctly and
should not require regulating initially.
However, if after making the first few coffees you find that the
coffee is either too weak and not creamy enough or delivery is
too slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting
the grinding adjustment knob (A1) (fig. 7).
Please note:
While the machine is making coffee, delivery can be interrupted at any moment by pressing one of the two coffee
buttons (
or
).
• At the end of delivery, to increase the quantity of coffee in
the cup, just press (within 3 seconds) one of the coffee buttons (
or
).
Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is ready to use
again.
•
Please note :
The grinding adjustment knob must only be turned when the
coffee mill is in operation.
11
Please note:
For hotter coffee, see the section “10.4 Tips for a hotter coffee:”.
•
•
Important!
If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time, too weak and not
creamy enough or too cold, read the tips in the “19. TROUBLESHOOTING” section.
Lights may be displayed on the control panel during use.
Their meaning is given in the sections “17. MEANING OF
LIGHTS DURING NORMAL OPERATION” and “18. MEANING
OF THE ALARM LIGHTS”.
•
Please note:
For a richer denser froth, use skimmed or partially skimmed
milk at refrigerator temperature (about 41°F/ 5°C).

the cappuccino maker (A9) as described in the section
“11.1 Cleaning the cappuccino maker after use”.
3. Press the
button (B7). The corresponding light (B6)
flashes, indicating that the appliance is heating up;
5. Turn the cappuccino maker outwards and immerse in the
milk container (A9- fig. 14);
6. When the
light stops flashing and comes on steadily,
turn the steam/hot water knob to the l position (B10 - fig.
5). Steam is delivered from the cappuccino maker, giving
the milk a creamy frothy appearance and making it more
voluminous;
7. For a creamier froth, rotate the container with slow movements in an upward direction. (You should not discharge
steam for more than 3 minutes at a time);
8. When you have obtained the required froth, stop steam
delivery by turning the steam/hot water knob back to the
0 position.
10.6 Making coffee using pre-ground coffee
•
In choosing the size of the container, bear in mind that the
milk doubles or triples in volume;
Important!
Never add pre-ground coffee when the machine is off or it
could spread through the inside of the machine and dirty
it. This could damage the appliance.
Never use more than one level measure
or it could dirty the inside of the machine
or block the funnel.
Please note:
If you use pre-ground coffee, you can only make one cup of
coffee at a time.
1. Turn the coffee taste selection knob (B9) anticlockwise as
far as it will go to the
position.
2. Make sure the funnel (A8) is not blocked, then add one
level measure of pre-ground coffee (A23) (fig. 13).
3. Place a cup under the coffee spouts (fig 9).
4. Press the
cup coffee button (fig. 11).
5. Preparation begins and can be interrupted at any moment
by pressing one of the two coffee buttons (
-B3 or
-B5).
To deactivate the pre-ground coffee function, turn the knob to
one of the other positions.
Important! Danger of burns!
Always turn the steam/hot water knob to the 0 position
before removing the container with the frothed milk to
avoid burns caused by splashes of boiling milk.
9. Add the milk froth to the cup of coffee prepared previously.
The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and, if desired,
sprinkle the froth with a little cocoa powder.
•
Please note:
A few seconds may elapse between energy saving mode and
delivery of the first coffee.
11. MAKING CAPPUCCINO
Important! Danger of burns!
During preparation, steam is given off. Take care to avoid scalds.
1. When preparing cappuccino, make the coffee in a large
