description of appliance
Description of appliance
Recommended quantities:
A. Glass jug
B. Coffee compartment and water tank lid
C. Filter holder for filter coffee
D. Shower
E. Water tank compartment
F. Water level window
G. Measure
H. Water tank filter
I. Paper filter (1X2 type) (if provided)
L. “On/stand-by” button with light
M. Warming plate
N. Aroma button with light
O. Permanent filter
No. cups
No. measures (*)
(*) 1 level measure = 1 tablespoon (5 g)
For a stronger taste we suggest to add 1 more measure for
each cup.
The quantities given in the table are indicative and should be
adapted to your personal taste and the type of coffee. Never
exceed the maximum quantity of 5 measures. The type of
blend has a considerable influence on the coffee you make.
You should therefore try various types of coffee to find the
one best suited to your taste.
• Close the lid (B) and place the closed jug on the plate
(fig. 8).
• Press the button (L) (fig. 9). The light on the switch
indicates that the coffee maker is operating. Coffee
delivery will start after a few seconds. It is completely
normal for the appliance to give off steam while the
coffee is percolating. The coffee maker emits a beep
when delivery begins, then three beeps when it ends.
The taste of the coffee can be optimised by pressing the
AROMA button (N). This function enables a process of
percolation which delivers the water into the filter more
slowly. Filtering a little at a time improves the flavour
and aroma of the coffee. To enable the function, press
the aroma button (the light on the button comes on).
To disable the function, press the button again. You are
recommended to use the AROMA button when you do
not want to make a full jug of coffee.
• If you leave the button (L) pressed after percolation
has finished, the plate will keep the coffee at the ideal
temperature. The appliance goes off automatically 40
minutes after coffee delivery ends. To turn the warming
plate (M) off press the button (L) again. For a new
brewing cycle switch off the appliance pressing button
(L) and restart.
How to make filter coffee
Please note: the first time the appliance is used, all
accessories and the internal circuits must be washed through by making at least two jugs of coffee without using preground coffee.
• Open the coffee compartment and water tank lid (B)
(fig. 1) and use the jug (A) to pour clean cold water into
the water tank compartment (E) up to the level indicated for the number of cups of coffee you want to make
(fig. 2).
Check the level of water in the tank through the level
window (F) (fig. 3). You are recommended to use the
jug provided as a measure as the maximum capacity of
the jug and the tank are the same.
• Turn the shower (D) (fig. 4). Position the paper filter (I)
or the permanent filter (O) in the filter holder (C) (fig.
• Place the pre-ground coffee in the filter using the measure (G) provided and level evenly (fig. 6).
Use good quality, medium pre-ground coffee for filter
coffee makers.
The type of blend has a considerable influence on the
coffee you make.
You should therefore try various types of coffee to find
the one best suited to your taste.
Please note: removing the jug before all the coffee
has been delivered does not interrupt coffee making, but merely blocks flow into the jug. If you want to pour out a little
coffee immediately, you should do so as quickly as possible in
order to avoid the coffee overflowing in the filter.
Cleaning and maintenance
Before maintenance or cleaning of the appliance, turn off,
unplug from the mains socket and allow to cool.
• Do not use solvents or abrasive detergents to clean the
coffee maker. Just wipe with a soft, damp cloth.
• Never immerse the coffee maker in water. It is an electrical appliance.
• The water tank filter (H) can be reached through the
coffee compartment and water tank lid (B) (fig. 7). Clean when necessary.
The Aroma
function may
be activated.
Turn off the aroma function for faster brewing.
The coffee I n s u f f i c i e n t Rinse the machine as
has an acidic rinsing after described in the section
If the water in your area is hard, limescale builds up over
time. These deposits may affect correct operation of the
appliance. You are recommended to descale the coffee maker every 60 coffee making cycles. To descale, always use
De’Longhi descaler or special commercially available descaling products for filter coffee makers.
1. Dilute the product in the jug, following the instructions
on the descaler pack.
2. Pour the solution into the water fill compartment.
3. Place the jug on the warming plate (M).
4. Press the button (L), percolate the equivalent of one
cup then turn the appliance off.
5. Leave the solution to work for 15 minutes, then repeat
operations 4 and 5.
6. Turn the appliance on and deliver the water until the
tank is completely empty.
7. Rinse by operating the appliance with water only at
least 3 times (3 complete tanks of water).
Failure to clean as described above invalidates the guarantee.
