Never exceed the maximum quantity of 10 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. • Models with glass jug (B): close the door at the front of the appliance and place the closed jug on the plate (fig. 6). • Models with thermal jug (A): before placing the jug on the plate, make sure the lid is closed (fig. 7). • Press the ON/AUTO/ button (G) (fig. 8). The red light indicates that the coffee maker is operating and “BREW” appears on the display. The appliance 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 (H). This function enables a process of percolation which releases the water in 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 (H) when you do not want to make a full jug of coffee. • In models with glass jug: if you leave the ON/AUTO/ button (G) 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. • Models with thermal jug: Press down the lever on the jug lid pour the coffee into cups (fig. 9). Setting the clock Plug the appliance into the mains socket. The first time it comes on, “0:00” appears on the display. To set the exact time, press and hold the SET CLOCK button (I) (fig. 1) until the current time is displayed, then release. The time can be set at any moment.

Check the level of water in the tank through the level window (E) (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. • Position the permanent filter (N) (if present) in the filter holder (fig. 4). In versions without permanent filter, use the paper filter (size 1x4). • Place the pre-ground coffee in the filter using the measure (O) provided and level evenly (fig. 5).
