Thank you for choosing this coffee machine. To get the very
best out of your new coffee machine it is advisable to read
these instructions before using the appliance. This is the only
way to ensure optimum results and maximum safety.
Using for the first time
Before using the machine for the first time, wash all the accessories in warm soapy water and rinse. For the best tasting coffee
the internal circuits must be flushed through at least five times.To
do this follow the instructions in the paragraph “How to prepare
espresso coffee” using just water.
• Place the coffee maker on flat work surface at a safe distance
from taps and sinks.
• Check that the voltage corresponds to that indicated on the
appliance rating plate.The appliance must always be connected
to a well-earthed socket rated at 10A minimum.The manufacturer is not liable for damage caused by inadequate earthing of
the appliance.
• In the event of incompatibility between the plug on the appliance and the socket, have the plug replaced by a qualified professional.
If the cable is damaged or requires replacing, contact a service
centre authorised by the manufacturer only.
• Never install the machine in an environment that can reach a
temperature less than or equal to 0°C (if the water in it
freezes, the coffee maker may be damaged).

How to prepare espresso coffee
Filling the water tank
To remove the water tank lift the lid (fig.1) and simply pull
upwards (fig 2) and fill the tank at the sink (fig 3). Do not exceed
the MAX level on the water tank. The tank may also be filled without removing it, simply by pouring water into it directly from a jug.
Replace the tank by connecting the valve at the bottom of the tank
with the hole in the base on the machine.
WARNING: it is completely normal for there to be water in the
compartment under the tank; as a result, this compartment should
be dried using a clean sponge.
Note: Do not operate the appliance without water in the tank
and always remember to fill the tank when the level drops to a
couple of centimetres from the bottom.

Preheating the coffee machine
To ensure your espresso coffee is dispensed at the right temperature it is essential that the coffee unit is preheated.
1. Press the ON/OFF button (fig. 4).
2. Attach the empty filter holder (without coffee) to the machine
by positioning it under the boiler outlet with the handle
towards the left (fig. 5). Push upwards and at the same time
turn the handle as far right as possible. It does not matter if the
handle is not centrally aligned with the machine, as long as the
filter holder is firmly attached to the appliance.
3. Position a cup under the filter holder. Use the same cup that
the coffee will be served in, so that it may be preheated.
Wait until the “OK” light comes on (fig. 6), then immediately
press the coffee knob (fig. 7). Allow the water to run until the
OK indicator light goes out, then stop the water by pressing the
coffee button again (fig. 7).
4. Empty the cup, wait until the “OK” pilot light comes on again
and repeat the whole operation one more time.
(It is normal for a small and harmless puff of steam to be given off
when removing the filter holder).

How to prepare coffee using pods
1. Preheat the machine as described in the ‘Preheating the Coffee
Machine’ section, attaching the coffee filter holder with 1 cup or
pod filter to the unit.This procedure ensures that the coffee is
delivered at a hotter temperature and that the seal of the holder is more effective.
Note: Use pods which conform to the ESE standard: this will be
indicated on the packaging by the symbol as in fig. 13.
The ESE standard is a system accepted by the leading coffee pod
manufacturers, and allows espresso coffee to be prepared simply
and without any mess.

Electrical requirements
Before using this appliance ensure that the voltage indicated
on the product corresponds with the main voltage in your
home, if you are in any doubt about your supply contact your
local electricity company.
The flexible mains lead is supplied connected to a B.S. 1363 fused plug
having a fuse of 13 amp capacity. Should this plug not fit the socket outlets in your home, it should be cut off and replaced with a suitable plug,
following the procedure outlined below.
Note: Such a plug cannot be used for any other appliance and should
therefore be properly disposed of and not left where children might find
it and plug it into a supply socket - with the obvious consequent danger.
N.B. We recommend the use of good quality plugs and wall sockets that
can be switched off when the machine is not in use.
important: the wires in the mains lead fitted to this appliance are
coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and Yellow to Earth
13 amp
to Live
Blue to
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or by the earth
or coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
When wiring the plug, ensure that all strands of wire are securely
retained in each terminal. Do not forget to tighten the mains lead clamp
on the plug. If your electricity supply point has only two pin socket outlets, or if you are in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
Should the mains lead ever require replacement, it is essential that this
operation be carried out by a qualified electrician and should only be
replaced with a flexible cord of the same size.
After replacement of a fuse in the plug, the fuse cover must be refitted.
If the fuse cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement
cover is obtained. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is
that of the coloured insert in the base of the fuse recess or elsewhere
on the plug. Always state this colour when ordering a replacement fuse
Only 13amp replacement fuses which are asta approved to B.S. 1362
should be fitted.
This appliance conforms to the Norms EN 55014 regarding the suppression of radio interference.
