X1 trio INT.CDR
The X1 espresso machine uses the EASY SERVING ESPRESSO (E.S.E.) system: for it to operate properly it is necessary to use the E.S.E.
servings, which are easily recognisable from the brand name printed on the packets, the same one that is shown on the espresso
machines. The E.S.E. system guarantees a series of benefits: the quality of the espresso coffee always remains constant, irrespective
of the consumer's skill in making it. It is easy to use and very fast, and the system is extremely easy to clean. The standard E.S.E. is
achieved by setting the filter-holder on the icon “long espresso”.
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be taken, including the following:
- Read the instructions carefully
- Never touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs
- To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons do not immerse cord, plugs or machine in water or other liquid

- The machine must not be installed in an environment with a temperature lower than or equal to 0°C (if the water freezes, the appliance could get
damaged) or exceeding 40°C
Caution: If limescale is not removed regularly - as outlined in the chapter on DESCALING - it is imperative that this is done by a service centre.
Before connecting the machine to the electrical mains, read the safety rules outlined in the previous chapter with care.
Make sure that switches (A), (B) and (C) are in up position, that the steam knob (I) is closed (fig.1) and that the machine is unplugged from the electrical mains.
Insert the filter-holder (G) (fig. 2).
Remove tank (R), wash it, fill it with cold water and replace it in the machine (fig. 3); make sure that the intake pipe (Q) is immersed in the water.
Connect the machine to the power supply.
Make sure that there is water in the tank.
Switch the machine on by flipping switch (A) downwards. Make sure that the red light (D) (fig. 4) comes on. If a repetitive acoustic signal is given every second,
flip the coffee and steam switches upwards.
When the machine is first switched on, the thermometer pointer (F) starts to go up until it reaches the steam zone and then it returns to the coffee zone. After a
few minutes, the green light (E) (fig. 5) comes on to indicate that the operating temperature has been reached and there is a short acoustic sound. Should the
lights or the rapid acoustic signal (5 impulses per second) fail to come on consult the chapter on TROUBLESHOOTING.
The machine is fitted with a pressure regulating valve in the boiler, which causes slight dripping from the filter-holder when the temperature increases
(switching on and when switching from “coffee” to “steam.
NOTE: If the machine is being used for the first time or if it has been inoperative for a lengthy period, flushing is recommended by running water through
the filter-holder several times (fig. 6).
Foreword: the X1 machine has been designed to provide the best coffee using an E.S.E. coffee pod as shown in figure 7.
If a different serving is used, remove the excess paper, leaving a 5 mm border around the coffee pod; otherwise technical inconveniences may arise and water
may leak from the extraction group.
Make sure that the machine ready light (E) comes on and switch (C) is in coffee position (up) (fig. 8).
Remove filter-holder (G), place the serving in the centre of the filter-holder (fig. 9), fit filter-holder in the brewhead and turn to the right until it is aligned with
the type of coffee required.
In fact, the machine is fitted with the innovative extraction group >TRIO that allows a mild coffee (fig.10A), normal coffee (fig.10B) or extra-strong coffee
(fig. 10C) to be prepared in the best possible way, depending on how the filter-holder is positioned.
Flip switch (B) downwards and once you have the required amount of coffee flip switch (B) back in up position.
When the operation has been completed, remove the filter-holder and then the used serving by turning the filter-holder upside down and tapping the edge on
the rubber used serving dump (fig. 11).
To prepare other coffees, repeat the entire sequence.
Before switching off the machine or after each use, empty the filter-holder, put it back in the brewhead and flush it with hot water so as to remove any residues.
Once the operation is completed, leave the filter-holder released.
Caution: Should you forget to switch the water off, the machine will automatically switch the pump off after about two minutes and an acoustic signal will come
on every second; to reset operation, simply flip coffee switch (B) upwards.
Do not used distilled or demineralised water to prepare coffee.
Caution: If the machine has been on for several hours without any coffee having been prepared, you may notice a few problems in getting it restarted
(button B). Simply open the steam knob (I) for a few seconds, after having pressed the coffee button (B), and the machine will restore its normal operation.
To make a cappuccino, after having prepared the coffee, pour some cold milk into a metal recipient and follow the instructions below.
Make sure that the filter-holder has no serving in it.
Flip switch (C) to steam position; the machine ready light (E) will switch off and the thermometer temperature indicator (F) will start to go up (fig. 12).
When the machine is ready, a short acoustic sound will be given and the green light will come on again; turn the steam knob (I) anti-clockwise, allow the residual
water to flow out of the pipe until steam is released, then close the steam valve.
Place the milk recipient under the steam wand (J) (fig.13) and turn the steam knob (I) anti-clockwise.
The small hole (K) on the steam wand will take in the necessary amount of air to create a froth for the cappuccino; therefore make sure that it is not covered by
the milk.
Once the desired amount of froth has been achieved, close the steam valve and flip switch (C) upwards (fig.14)
Pour the milk and froth in the cup containing the coffee (fig. 15).
Clean the cappuccino spout (K) from all milk residues (fig. 16) avoiding direct contact with the hands at all times.
CAUTION: Contact with the wand (J) may cause serious burns.
It is very important to avoid making an espresso immediately after steam has been dispensed, as the machine is still too hot and this could compromise the
Flip selector switch (C) from steam position (down) to coffee position (up); the light (E) goes off for a few minutes giving the machine a little time to cool down;
when the boiler has reached a suitable temperature, the light comes on again and coffee can be prepared once again.
If you wish to reduce the temperature of the machine quickly and obtain a perfect espresso, follow the instructions below:
1. Make sure that switch (C) is in coffee position (out). (fig. 14)
2. Dispense steam by opening the steam valve (I), after placing a recipient under the steam wand (J), close the steam valve when a brief acoustic signal is
given and the green light turns on again. (fig. 17)
3. The boiler has again reached a suitable temperature to prepare an espresso coffee.
The machine is fitted with a pressure regulating valve in the boiler, which causes slight dripping from the filter-holder when the temperature increases
(switching on and when switching from “coffee” to “steam.
CAUTION: If switch (C) is in steam position (down), coffee switch (B) does not work. (fig. 18)
Hot water is dispensed through the steam wand (J).
Proceed as follows:
1. Make sure that coffee switch (B) and steam switch (C) are in up position and the machine ready light (E) is on
2. Place a recipient under the steam wand
3. Turn the steam knob (I) anti-clockwise and flip the water/coffee switch (B) downwards (fig. 19)
4. Dispense the required amount of hot water
5. Flip water/coffee switch (B) upwards and turn steam knob (I) clockwise (fig. 20).
For correct operation and a high quality standard acurate cleaning of the machine is recommended on a regular basis.
Procedures to be followed with cold and disconnected machine:
- water tank cleaning
- filter-holder cleaning; NB: cleaning and removal of any solid residues is more accurate if the filter is removed by means of the screw (fig. 21)
- steam wand cleaning; NB: remove any milk residues on the wand, the air intake hole and the steam outlet hole with precision
- drip tray cleaning
- grate cleaning.
Should there be any water leak from the filter-holder when preparing coffee, replace the O-R seal by removing it from its seat (fig. 22) and inserting the new one
provided (T) (fig. 23). To clean the plastic filter-holder release it from the handle. To do this, turn the used serving container (U) upside down and press the spout
in the hole, the filter will automatically drop out (fig. 24).
Procedures to be followed with machine on:
To remove fatty residues of coffee from the extraction group compartment, which can spoil the aroma and taste of your espresso if they deposit and age, clean
the machine every 30 days using a cleaning tablet to dissolve such residues. A sample of this product can be found inside the package.
Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the filter-holder handle (G) from the machine
2. Place a tablet in the filter
3. Replace the handle (G) with the tablet in the machine
4. Position a recipient beneath the filter-holder, turn on the coffee switch (B) for 30 seconds and wait 60 seconds before turning on the coffee switch again.
During this 60-second break, turn the handle to the left and to the right and vice versa, several times to clean the seal as well
5. Repeat point 4 six times
6. Once the 6 cycles have been completed, make sure there are no tablet residues in the filter-holder
7. If there are any residues, make sure they are removed by releasing the filter-holder from the machine, and washing it with hot water by turning on coffee
switch (B)
8. Turn off coffee switch (B)
9. Replace the filter-holder handle (G) in the machine
Remember to keep the steam pipe clean from any milk residues both inside and outside the holes.
Clean the cappuccino maker immediately after every use by means of a sponge. The holes can be cleaned using a pin (fig. 16).
At night dip the filter-holder in a recipient filled with water to keep it clean.
The need to remove limescale depends on the type of water used, the hours of machine operation and the number of coffees made.
Descaling is recommended every 2 months.
Do not use distilled or demineralised water to prepare coffee.
CAUTION: The use of our descaling product (fig. 25) is recommended. If limescale removal is not performed, it could cause defective operation, which is not
covered by the warranty. Vinegar, lye, salt, formic acid damage the machine!
Descaling procedure:
Dilute the contents of a sachet in 1 litre of water. Pour the solution in the water tank. Switch on the machine and flush the equivalent of 2 to 3 cups. Wait 15
minutes and flush 2 or 3 cups of solution at regular intervals until the water has finished. Repeat the operation until all the solution has been used up. Then wash
the tank, fill it with fresh water and flush again with clear water about ten times so that the boiler is completely free from any residues. Caution: if descaling is
not carried out regularly, it must be performed by an authorised assistance centre.
