HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE
FILLING THE WATER TANK:
To remove the water tank simply pull upwards (fig 2)
and fill the tank at the sink (fig 3). Do not exceed the
MAX level on the water tank. The tank may also be
filled without removing it, simply by pouring water into
it directly from a jug.
Replace the tank by connecting the valve at the bottom
of the tank with the hole in the base on the machine.
Note: Do not operate the appliance without water in
the tank and always remember to fill the tank when the
water level goes below the MIN level.
PREHEATING THE COFFEE MACHINE
To obtain espresso coffee at the right temperature, the
coffee maker must be preheated. Turn the selector knob
to the
position (fig. 4) at least half an hour before
making the coffee, making sure the filter holder is
attached to the appliance (check that the steam release
knob is closed). To attach the filter holder, place it
under the boiler outlet with the handle towards the left
(fig. 5). Push upwards and at the same time turn the
handle as far to the right as possible. To avoid leaks of
water, rotate firmly. After half an hour, make coffee
following the instructions of the next paragraph.
Alternatively, for a faster operation, proceed as
follows:
1.Turn the selector knob so that the indented line on the
selector knob points to the boiler on function
(fig.
4). Attach the empty filter holder (without coffee) to
the machine
2.Position a cup under the filter holder. Use the same
cup that the coffee will be served in, so that it may be
preheated.
3.Wait until the orange “OK” light comes on (fig 6)
and turn the selector knob to the espresso function
position (fig 7). Allow water to flow until the
orange “OK” light goes out, then stop the flow of
water by turning the selector knob to the boiler on
function
(fig 4)
4.Empty the cup, wait until the “OK” pilot light comes
on again and repeat the whole operation one more
time.
(It is normal for a small and harmless puff of steam to
be given off when removing the filter holder).
HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING THE FILTER
HOLDER FOR GROUND COFFEE
1.After preheating the appliance as described in the
above paragraph, insert the ground coffee filter
with frother into the filter holder, making sure the
tab is correctly inserted into the housing as shown
in fig. 8.
2.To prepare a single coffee, fill the filter with a level
measure of ground coffee, about 7 g (fig. 9). To
prepare two coffees, use the filter and fill with two
loosely filled measures of ground coffee (about 6+6
g). Fill the filter in small doses to prevent the ground
coffee from overflowing.
IMPORTANT: For correct operation, before adding the
ground coffee to the filter holder, make sure the filter
is free from ground coffee from the previous infusion.
3.Distribute the ground coffee uniformly and press it
lightly with the pressing pad (Fig. 10).
NOTE:Pressing the coffee is very important in order
to prepare a food coffee. However if you press too
hard, coffee will come out slowly and cream will be
of a dark colour. If you press to light, coffee will come
out too fast and cream will be a very light color.
3. Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filter
holder and attach the filter holder to the appliance.
Rotate firmly (fig. 5) to avoid leaks of water.
4.Place the cup or cups (cups can be preheated by
rinsing under hot water) on the black part of the
removable drip tray (fig 11). Ensure that the cup or
cups line up with the dispensing holes on the filter
holder.
5.Wait until the “OK” light comes on (fig 6) then turn
the selector knob to the espresso function
(fig 7)
until the desired quantity of coffee is obtained. To stop
the delivery, turn the selectoor to the
position.
6.To detach the filter holder, turn the handle from right
to left.
To avoid any splashing, do not detach the filter
holder while the machine is dispensing coffee.
7.To remove the used coffee, hold the filter locked with
the special lever that is built into the handle and let
the coffee fall out by knocking the overturned filter
holder (Fig. 12).
8.To switch off the coffee machine, turn the selector knob
on the appliance to the OFF position “O” (fig 13)
ATTENTION: The first time that coffee is prepared, it is
necessary to wash all of the accessories and the
internal circuits of the machine, preparing at least five
coffees without using the ground coffee.
13
HOW TO PREPARE COFFEE USING THE FILTER
HOLDER FOR PODS (if fitted)
1.Preheat the machine as described in the ‘Preheating
the Coffee Machine’ section, making sure to leave
the filter holder attached to the unit. Following this
procedure ensures that the coffee is delivered at a
hotter temperature.
2.Press the filter holder button and insert the pod into
the filter (fig 14). Always follow the instructions on
the package of the wafers for the correct positioning
of the wafer in the filter.
Note: Use pods which conform to the ESE standard:
this will be indicated on the packaging by the following
symbol:
The ESE standard is a system accepted by the leading
coffee pod manufacturers, and allows espresso coffee
to be prepared simply and without any mess.
3.Attach the filter holder onto the machine, moving
from left to right (fig 5).
Note: to ensure effective closure and avoid leaks of
water from the rim of the filter holder, you are
recommended to grease the bottom of the lateral tabs
from time to time with butter or oil (as shown in fig. 15).
IMPORTANT: Should the coffee holder for pods be
used after one for ground coffee, it’s necessary to
clear the ground coffee remained in the espresso
boiler outlet (fig. 16). This cleaning operation is
necessary in order to avoid water leackeges from
the coffe holder for pods whele coffee is being
preposed.
4.Proceed as in points 4, 5 and 6 of the previous
paragraph (how to prepare espresso coffee using the
filter holder for ground coffee).
5.To remove the pod, press the button on the filter
holder and simply lift the pod out
6.To turn the coffee machine off, turn the selector knob on
the appliance to the Off position “O” (fig 13).
14
HOW TO MAKE CAPPUCCINO
1.Prepare espresso coffee, using cups that are large
enough for cappuccinos
2.Turn the selector knob to the
position (fig. 17)
and wait until the “OK” light comes on (fig. 6) to
indicate that the boiler has reached the ideal
temperature for producing steam.
3.In the meantime, fill a container with approximately
100 gr. of milk for each cappuccino to be prepared.
The milk must be cold from the refrigerator (not
warm!). In choosing the container, bear in mind that
the volume of the milk will increase by 2 or 3 times.
NOTE: We suggest you used semi-skimed milk at
refrigerator temperature.
4.Position the container with the milk in it under the
milk frother (fig 18).
5.Immerse the cappuccino maker nozzle about 2 cm
deep into the milk and turn the steam knob in an
anti-clockwise direction (fig. 17) (by turning the knob
to a greater or lesser extent, it is possible to vary the
quantity of steam that comes out from the cappuccino
maker). At this point, the milk will begin to increase
in volume and to appear frothy.
6.Once the desired temperature has been reached (the
ideal temperature is 60°C), stop the delivery of steam
by turning the steam knob in a clockwise direction
and at the same time positioning the selector knob at
“O” (fig. 13).
7.Pour the frothed milk into the cups containing the
espresso coffee. Your cappuccino is now ready. Add
sugar to taste and, if desired, sprinkle a little
powdered chocolate on top of the froth.
Note: to prepare more than one cappuccino, first
make all the coffees then at the end prepare the
frothed milk for all the cappuccinos.
IMPORTANT: always clean the milk frother and steam
nozzle immediately after use. Proceed as follows:
1.By turning the steam knob (fig. 19), allow a little
steam to come out for a few seconds. Then close
firmly by turning clockwise.
2.Hold the upper part tight with one hand and use your
other hand to unscrew the cappuccino maker,
rotating it in a clockwise direction, and remove it
from the nozzle (fig. 20).
3.Remove the steam nozzle by sliding it off the delivery
tube.
4.Wash the cappuccino maker and steam nozzle
thoroughly with warm water.
5.Make sure the two holes indicated with an arrow in
fig. 21 are not blocked. If necessary, clean with a
pin.
6.Replace the steam nozzle by inserting it into the
steam delivery tube and rotating firmly (fig. 22).
7.Replace the milk frother by inserting it and rotating
anticlockwise (fig. 23).
PRODUCING HOT WATER
1.Turn on the coffee unit by turning the selector knob to
the
position (fig. 4).
2.Position a container under the cappuccino maker.
3.When the ‘OK’ pilot light comes on, position the
selector knob at
(fig. 7) and at the same time
turn the steam knob in an anti-clockwise direction
(fig. 19); hot water will come out from the
cappuccino maker.
4. To stop the flow of hot water, turn the steam knob in a
clockwise direction and position the selector knob at “O”

until the ‘OK’ light comes on.
4.Check that the filter holder is not attached and place
a container under the outlet of the machine;
5.Turn the selector knob to the
position and allow
half of the solution in the tank to flow out. Then stop
the flow by turning the selector to the “O” position.
6.Allow the solution to act for about 15 minutes, then
start up the flow again until the tank is completely
empty;
7.To eliminate the remains of the solution and the
calcium, rinse the tank well, fill it with clean water
and replace.
8.Turn the selector knob to the
position and allow
all of the remaining solution in the tank to flow out.
9.Turn the selector knob to the
