2.2. The most important controls
Your NIVONA appliance offers a speciality of options to brew coffee according to your individual
needs. The main controls and how to use them are identical for most of the coffee specialities.
•
•
•
•
Left Rotary-Push-Turn-Switch (short: left rotary control) (fig. 1/B): The left rotary control alters
strength and volume of your coffee. By turning the left rotary control in the main menu the volume is adjusted (in ml). By pressing the left rotary control in the main menu the coffee strength
is altered (bean symbol, fig. 1/D). The more beans displayed, the stronger the coffee. By pushing
the left rotary control in any sub menu you leave that menu and move back one menu level.
Right Rotary-Push-Turn-Switch (short: right rotary control) (fig. 1/C): By turning the right rotary
control you select a drink or menu point in the display. By pushing the right rotary control, the
drink shown in the display will be brewed, or you access the selected menu item.
Height-adjustable spout(fig. 1/E): The spout can be adjusted to the height of your cups and glasses
by pushing it up or down. Hold the spout with thumb and index finger and move it up or down.
Milk container (model 788 only): Fill the milk container with fresh, low-fat and cold milk. Close
the lid and connect one end of the connecting tube to the container and the other to the spout.
2.3. Filling with water and beans
Open the cover on the left (fig. 1/F) and remove the water tank (fig. 2). Clean it with clear, cold
tap water.
Refill the water tank to above the minimum mark (0.5 l) and insert it back into the appliance.
Make sure the tank is safely locked in place.
Close the cover on the left (fig. 1/F).
Attention: Only use clear, cold water for the water tank! Never use sparkling water or any other liquids!
Non-compliance will render warranty claims void.
Open the cover of the bean container (fig. 1/G and 3).
Fill with untreated, roasted coffee beans only.
Close the cover again and make sure it fits correctly.
Attention: Never use beans that have been treated during or after roasting with supplements such as
sugar or similar. This may damage the mill. Resulting repairs are not covered by the warranty.
2.4. Switching appliance on and performing initial start

2. Initial start-up
Place a sufficiently large bowl (minimum contents 0.5 l) underneath the spout (fig. 1/E) and
press the right rotary control.
The system is now being flushed. The display shows “FILTER FLUSHES”.
Wait until no more water emerges from the spout.
The display shows “PLEASE Flush”.
Press the right rotary control. The display shows “SYSTEM FLUSHES”.
2 red dots / 8–14° = LEVEL 2
3 red dots / 15–21° = LEVEL 3
4 red dots / >21° = LEVEL 4
Note: If the test strip does not show any red dots, please set up level 1.
How to set up the water hardness:
Turn the right rotary control onto the correct degree of hardness and press it to confirm.
Once the system has reached operating temperature, the main menu will appear in the display to
show that the appliance is ready for use.
The display shows “PLEASE FILL”.
The first cup: When you prepare your first cup of coffee the grinder will be empty. It is possible that
after the initial grinding the display will show “REFILL BEANS” and no coffee is produced.
The system is now being filled with water and heated up.
If that happens, please follow the display’s instruction and press the right rotary control again.
The process will then be repeated.
Note: If you are using a filter and programmed the system to “FILTER INSERTED? YES”, the internal
water softening is automatically set to water hardness level 1. The appliance needs descaling less
frequently – but always descale when asked to do so and always with FILTER REMOVED.
The filter will need to be changed after approx. 50 l of water have been drawn (changing filter see 3.1).
Attention: Even if the display does not indicate “PLEASE CHANGE FILTER“, the filter needs changing
after a maximum of two months if the appliance is not used regularly (see 5.8.).
2.4.2. Using the appliance without filter
If you prefer to use the appliance without filter, the filter setting “FILTER INSERTED? NO” needs
to be set. This is important because depending on the water hardness the appliance needs to be
descaled more often (ex-factory the appliance comes with the setting “FILTER INSERTED? NO”!).
Turn right rotary control to “FILTER INSERTED? NO” and press to confirm.
The display shows the level of water hardness.
Note: Due to production reasons the internal pipes may be empty when setting the appliance up for
the first time. The appliance will show this as follows: On the display it says “PLEASE FILL”, once the
appliance has been switched on with the On/Off switch (fig. 1/H).
Place a sufficiently large bowl (minimum contents 0.5 l) underneath the spout.
Press the right rotary control.
The system is now being filled with water which may emerge from the spout (fig. 1/E).
Once the system has reached operating temperature, the display shows “PLEASE FILL”.
Press the right rotary control.
The system is now being filled with water.
2.4.3. Adjusting the water hardness
Depending on the water hardness in your area, the appliance needs to be descaled every now and
then. For the system to be able to indicate that this is necessary, you need to set the correct water
hardness prior to first use.
Level 3 is the ex-factory pre-set level.
First test the water quality with the enclosed test strip:
Dip the test strip into the water and shake it lightly.
After about one minute you will be able to read the result by counting the red dots on the test strip.
The different levels are listed as follows and can be adjusted:

Your NIVONA appliance offers a speciality of options to prepare coffee specialities according to your
individual taste. The most important control elements and their basic functions are generally identical:
•
•
•
•
Left Rotary-Push-Turn-Switch (in short: left rotary control) (fig. 1/B): By turning the left rotary
control you change the strength and volume of your coffee. By turning the left rotary control
in the main menu the volume in ml is changed. By pressing the left rotary control in the main
menu the coffee strength is adjusted (bean symbol, fig. 1/D). The more beans in the display, the
stronger the coffee. By pressing the left rotary control in a sub menu you go back one menu level.
Right Rotary-Push-Turn-Switch (in short: right rotary) (fig. 1/B): By turning the right rotary control
you select a drink or menu item in the display. By pushing the right rotary control, the drink
shown in the display will be brewed, or you access the selected menu item.
Height-adjustable spout (fig. 1/E): The spout can be adjusted to the height of your cups and glasses
by pushing it up or down. Hold the spout with thumb and index finger and move it up or down.
Milk container (model 788 only): Fill the milk container with fresh, low-fat and cold milk. Close
the cover and connect one end of the connecting tube to the container and the other to the
spout.
Note: In the bottom line the display shows the current settings of the chosen coffee speciality. Strength
on the left, volume on the right.
Each coffee speciality can be made in two separate ways:
a) Either you change the setting for each coffee individually as outlined in 4.1. In this case the standard
settings are preserved.
b) Or you adopt the standard settings from “DRINKS RECIPES” in the “SETTINGS” menu. Pre-settings have been recorded ex-factory; you can adjust them as outlined from 4.2. to 4.5. according
to your personal preference.
The first cup: When making your first coffee, the grinder box is still empty. It can therefore happen that
the display will show “FILL BEANS” after the first grinding and the appliance will not make any coffee.
74
GB
Start the brewing process by pressing the right rotary control.
Your settings are adopted if no other changes take place. Note: The settings only apply for the current
brewing process and will not be stored.
Note: Pay attention if you prepare one or two cups and place the cups accordingly under the spout
(fig. 5 and 6).
Note: Should you have initiated the brewing process incidentally or too early, it is possible to change a
few parameters while making the coffee. A blinking display will show you which.

Disposal of your old appliance and packaging
Please keep the original packaging. It will serve as protection should you need to ship the appliance
in the event of a customer service issue. Electrical and electronic appliances often contain valuable,
but sometimes also environmentally damaging material and should therefore not be disposed of as
normal household waste. They may damage human health and harm the environment when handled
or left among residual waste. Therefore please drop your old or irreparably damaged appliance at your
local community waste collection/recycling centre.
Further information is available from the dealer where you bought the appliance, your town hall or
waste collector.
