Setting up the appliance
•
•
Each time the appliance is turned on, it performs an automatic
preheat and rinse cycle which cannot be interrupted.
The appliance is ready for use only after completion of this
cycle.
Please note:
Coffee has been used to factory test the appliance and it
is therefore completely normal for there to be traces of
coffee in the mill. The machine is, however, guaranteed
to be new.
You should customise water hardness as soon as possible
following the Instruction for use in the section “Setting
water hardness” on page 10.
Danger of burns!
During rinsing, a little hot water comes out of the coffee spouts
and is collected in the drip tray underneath.
Avoid contact with splashes of water.
• To turn the appliance on, press the
button (fig. 5).
The message “Heating up Please wait” is displayed.
After heating, the message “Rinsing” is displayed. As well as
heating the boiler, the appliance also heats the internal circuits
by circulating hot water.
The appliance is at temperature when the message indicating
the taste and quantity of coffee appears.
1. Plug the appliance into the mains socket and make sure
the main switch on the back of the appliance is in the I
position (fig. 1).
You must first choose the language by turning the selection
dial, or waiting until the languages scroll through on the
display at intervals of about 3 seconds:
2. When “English” appears, press the
button (fig. 2) for
a few seconds until “English set” is displayed.
Follow the instructions indicated on the appliance display:
3. “FILL TANK”: extract the water tank, fill to the MAX line
with fresh water (fig. 3A), then put back in the appliance
(fig. 3B).
4. “INSERT WATER SPOUT”: Check that the hot water spout is
inserted on the connection nozzle and place a container
holding a minimum of 500 ml underneath (fig. 4).
5. “Hot water Confirm?” is displayed;
6. Press the
button to confirm (fig. 2). The
appliance delivers water from the spout then goes off
automatically.
The coffee machine is now ready for normal use.
•
•
•
TURNING THE APPLIANCE OFF
Whenever the coffee machine is turned off after being used to
make coffee, it performs an automatic rinse cycle.
Danger of burns!
During rinsing, a little hot water flows from the coffee spouts.
Avoid contact with splashes of water.
To turn the appliance off, press the
button (fig. 5). The
appliance performs a rinse cycle, then the message “Turning off
Please wait” is displayed and the appliance goes off (standby).
Please note!
If you will not be using the appliance for some time, unplug
from the mains socket:
• first turn the appliance off by pressing the
button
(fig. 8);
• release the main switch at the side of the appliance (fig.
2).
Please note:
When using the appliance for the first time, you need to
make 4-5 cups of coffee or 4-5 cappuccinos before it starts
to give satisfactory results.
When making the first 5-6 cappuccinos, it is normal
to hear the noise of boiling water. After this, the noise
becomes less.
To enjoy your coffee even more and improve the
performance of your appliance, we recommend installing

Important!
Do not use caramelised or candied coffee beans as they could
stick to the coffee mill and make it unusable.
1. Fill the container with coffee beans (fig. 11).
2. Place under the coffee spouts:
- 1 cup, if you want to make 1 coffee (fig. 12);
- 2 cups if you want 2 coffees.
3. Lower the spout as near as possible to the cups. This
makes a creamier coffee (fig. 12).

required (1 cup
or 2 cups
) (figs. 9 and 13).
5. Preparation begins. The amount of coffee selected is
displayed together with a progress bar which gradually
fills as preparation progresses.
Customising the “my coffee” quantity
The appliance is set by default to automatically deliver 30 ml of
“MY COFFEE”. To modify this quantity, proceed as follows:
1. Place a cup under the coffee spouts (fig. 12).
2. Turn the selection dial (fig. 8) until “MY COFFEE” is
displayed.
3. Keep the button (fig. 9) pressed until the message
“1 MY COFFEE Program quantity” is displayed and coffee
delivery begins. Release the button.
4. As soon as the coffee in the cup reaches the required level,
press the
button (fig. 9) again.
The quantity of coffee in the cup set has now been
programmed.
Please note:
While the machine is making coffee, delivery can be
interrupted at any moment by pressing any button.
• At the end of delivery, to increase the quantity of coffee
in the cup, just press (within 3 seconds) one of the coffee
buttons (
or
).
Once the coffee has been made, the appliance is ready to make
the next drink.
Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is set by default to prepare coffee correctly and
should not require regulating initially.
However, if after making the first few coffees you find that the
coffee is either too weak and not creamy enough or delivery is
too slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting
the grinding adjustment dial (fig. 10).
•
Please note:
The grinding adjustment dial must only be turned when the
coffee mill is in operation.
If the coffee is delivered too slowly or
not at all, turn one click clockwise
towards “7”. For fuller bodied creamier
coffee, turn one click anticlockwise
towards “1” (do not turn more than
one click at a time otherwise the
coffee could be delivered a drop at a
time). These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2
cups of coffee have been delivered. If this adjustment does not
obtain the desired result, turn the dial another click.
•
•
•
Please note:
Various alarm messages could be displayed while using
the machine (FILL TANK, EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER,
etc.). Their meaning is explained in the section “Displayed
messages” (page 19).
For hotter coffee, see the section “Tips for a hotter coffee”
(page 12).
If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time, too weak and
not creamy enough or too cold, read the tips in the
“Troubleshooting” section on page 20.
Making coffee using pre-ground coffee
•
Tips for a hotter coffee
For hotter coffee, you should:
• before delivering the coffee, perform a rinse cycle by
pressing the
button. Hot water is delivered from the
spout, heating the internal circuits of the appliance and
thus raising the coffee temperature;
• warm the cups by rinsing them with hot water (using the
hot water function);
• select the “high” coffee temperature in the menu.
•
12
Important!
Never add pre-ground coffee
when the machine is off or it
could spread through the inside
of the machine and dirty it. This
could damage the appliance.
Never use more than one level measure or it could dirty
the inside of the machine or block the funnel.
Please note:
If you use pre-ground coffee, you can only make one cup
of coffee at a time.
Adjusting the amount of froth
Turn the froth adjustment dial to adjust the amount of froth
on the milk delivered while making cappuccino and milk based
coffees.
1. Press the
button (fig. 7) repeatedly until “Preground” is displayed.
2. Make sure the funnel is not blocked, then add one level
measure of pre-ground coffee (fig. 14).
3. Place a cup under the coffee spouts.
4. Press the 1 cup
button (fig. 9).
5. Preparation begins. The amount of coffee selected is

Description
•
•
Please note:
For a denser more even froth, you must use skimmed or
partially skimmed milk at refrigerator temperature (about
5°C).
If “energy saving” mode is enabled, you may have to wait
a few seconds before the first cappuccino is delivered.

Do not leave the milk container out of the refrigerator
for long periods. The warmer the milk (5°C is ideal), the
poorer the quality of froth produced.
Making frothed milk (without coffee)
Proceed as described in the previous paragraph (Making
cappuccino or macchiato), pressing the CAPPUCCINO button
twice instead of once.
