READY FOR USE
The quality and the taste of your coffee depend both on the blend used
and the grind.
The appliance comes with a grind-adjusting knob (Fig.10). To use this
feature, turn the graduated knob when the coffee grinder is working;
the numbers displayed on the knob indicate the grind setting.
The manufacturer sets the knob to an average grinding coarseness in
the factory: if the ground coffee is too fine, turn the knob toward higher
settings; if the ground coffee is too coarse, turn the knob toward lower
settings.
You will note the change only after dispensing three /four coffees.
Use coffee beans for espresso coffee makers. Avoid using extremely
fine or coarse grind settings (e.g. 1 and 16); if you find this is necessary,
try using different coffee blends.
Store the coffee in a cool and dry place, in an airtight container.
You should change the grind setting if the coffee does not flow out in
an optimal manner, or more specifically:
The coffee flows out too fast = excessively coarse grind > turn the
knob to lower settings;
The coffee drips out slowly and/or not at all = excessively fine
grind > turn the knob to higher settings.
6
You may select the quantity of coffee (dose) that you wish to grind. The
manufacturer sets an average dose in the factory.
To change the ground coffee dose, simply turn the knob (Fig.11) situated
inside the coffee container. Turn it anticlockwise to increase the dose
and clockwise to decrease the dose.
You must adjust the dose before pressing the coffee dispenser button.
This system allows you to obtain an optimal cup of coffee with all
commercially available types of coffee.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
10.1 Cappuccinatore
The cappuccinatore is a device that automatically froths
milk, making it extremely easy to prepare classic Italianstyle cappuccino.
To install the cappuccinatore, proceed as follows:
• Make sure that no other devices are fitted on the steam tube; you
must remove any devices that have been installed. I.E. the
“Pannarello”.
DISPENSING STEAM / PREPARING CAPPUCCINO
Steam can be used to froth the milk for cappuccinos
and also to heat beverages.
Scalding hazard! Splashing may occur at the start –
scalding hazard! The hot water nozzle and pipe can
reach high temperatures: avoid touching it directly with your
hands.
• When the machine is ready to dispense coffee, direct the steam
pipe (14) above the drip tray, open the “hot water/steam” knob
(16) for a few instants to discharge any residual water from the
steam pipe; soon only steam will issue from the nozzle. The display
will show:
• Loosen the ring nut without slipping it off the cappuccinatore.
• Insert the cappuccinatore in the steam tube to a depth of about 4 cm.
• Tighten the ring nut securely.
Note: if the ring nut is not securely tightened, the
cappuccinatore may slip out during use.
STEAM
• Turn the knob (16) to OFF.
• Fill 1/3 of the receptacle you wish to use to make cappuccino with
cold milk.
Hot water with the cappuccinatore
To dispense hot water using the cappuccinatore, follow the
directions provided in par.8; hot water will flow out of the lower
part of the cappuccinatore.
For best results when making cappuccinos, the milk
and the cup used should be cold.
• Immerse the steam nozzle into the milk to be frothed and turn the
knob (16); turn the container slowly with up-down movements to
achieve uniform frothing (Fig.16).
• After using the steam for the desired time, shut off the steam (16).
• The same method can be used to heat other beverages.
• Clean the steam nozzle with a damp cloth.
Note: Should you wish to use big cups, raise the side
door and rotate the steam tube; by this way, the steam
tube can be further raised (Fig. 17). This is particularly useful
• 31 •
ENGLISH
While hot water is being dispensed, the silicone tube inside the
cappuccinatore must be inserted into the grating of the drip tray.
Make sure the silicone tube cannot slip out while the machine is in
use.
When preparing cappuccino, use cold milk to ensure
the best results.
Steam/Cappuccino with the cappuccinatore
• When you have finished using the cappuccinatore and steam, clean
the cappuccinatore to remove residual milk.
• Place a container filled with fresh drinking water alongside the
machine and place the tip of the intake tube inside the
container.
• Proceed as if you were making cappuccino, allowing the dirty water
to flow into a receptacle or directly into the drip tray.
The steam may be used to froth milk for cappuccino and to heat up
beverages.
Cleaning the cappuccinatore.
Note: Insert the tube into the grating, so that to avoid
any contact with dirty water or ground coffee residues;
the risk is that the drip tray contents may be sucked up.
Danger of scalding!
The steam may be preceded by brief sprays of hot water.
The dispensing tube can reach very high temperatures: avoiding
touching it directly with your hands.
• Position the cappuccinatore over the drip tray, open the “hot
water/steam” knob (16) for a few seconds to discharge residual
water from the cappuccinatore; in a short time only steam will
issue from the tube.
• Close the knob (16).
• Place the intake tube in a suitable receptacle or directly into a
container of milk, placed next to the machine.
After using the cappuccinatore, you should clean it thoroughly to ensure
maximum hygiene and functionality over time.
The cleaning steps are as follows:
• Loosen the ring nut of the cappuccinatore.
• Remove the cappuccinatore from the steam tube.
• Remove the casing of the cappuccinatore.
• Take off the cover, pin and intake tube.
• Clean all the parts of the cappuccinatore thoroughly with running
drinking water.
• Reassemble the cappuccino maker.
• Insert the cappuccinatore back in the steam tube.
• Tighten the ring nut securely.
Note: if the ring nut is not securely tightened, the
cappuccinatore may slip out during use.
• Place a cup containing previously prepared coffee beneath the nozzle
of the cappuccinatore.
• Open the knob (16); frothed milk will start issuing from the
cappuccinatore.
• Move the pin on the cappuccinatore to regulate the thickness of the
foam; by pushing it upward you will increase its volume.
