Tip: If you are using a filter, the internal water softening is automatically set to water hardness level 1!
The appliance needs descaling less frequently – but always descale when called upon to do so and
always with the FIILTER REMOVED.
The filter will be flat after approx. 50 l of water have been drawn (see chapter 4.1. how to change the filter).
Attention: Even if the display does not indicate “Change filter“ by highlighting the symbol
, the filter
needs changing after a maximum of two months if the appliance is not used regularly (see chapter 4).
2.6 Using the device without filter, adjust water hardness
Depending on the water hardness in your area, the appliance needs to be descaled every now and
again. For the system to be able to indicate that this is necessary, you need to set the correct water
hardness prior to first use.
Using the appliance with the filter and the appropriate settings (see above) the water hardness is
automatically set to level 1.
First test the water quality with the enclosed test strip.
Dip the test strip into the water and shake it lightly.
After about one minute you will be able to read the result by counting the red dots on the test
strip.
The different levels are listed as follows and can be adjusted:
Test strip / Degree of hardness = Display
1 red dot / 1–7° = LEVEL 1 = 1 red bar
2 red dots / 8–14° = LEVEL 2 = 2 red bars

the on/off switch (fig. 1/J) and pull the mains plug.
3.2 Selecting the coffee strength
The coffee strength can be set in three levels according to taste which the display will show:
MILD, the display features one bean, about 7 grams of ground coffee, e.g. for latte or cappuccino;
STANDARD, the display features two beans, about 9 grams of ground coffee, e.g. for coffee;
STRONG, the display features three beans, about 11 grams of ground coffee, e.g. for espresso or
strong coffee.
As soon as the appliance is operational, the display will show either its latest preset or the ex factory
setting.
You can change the setting by repeatedly pressing the coffee strength / volume selector (fig.
1/B). Thus the coffee strength changes from mild (one bean in display) to standard (two beans in
display) to strong (three beans in display) and back to mild.
3.3 Select water volume
By turning the coffee strength / volume selector (fig. 1/B), you can smoothly adjust the amount of
water (cup symbol bottom left for little water, full cup symbol bottom right for plenty of water).
