ENGLISH
Cautions
• The machine is for household use only. It is not intended
for use in environments such as canteens, staff kitchens of
shops, offices, factories or other work environments.
• Always put the machine on a flat and stable surface.
• Do not place the machine on hot surfaces, directly next to a
hot oven, heater units or similar sources of heat.
• Only put roasted coffee beans into the coffee bean hopper.
If ground coffee, instant coffee, raw coffee or any other
substance is put in the coffee bean hopper, it may damage
the machine.
• Let the machine cool down before inserting or removing
any parts. The heating surfaces may retain residual heat
after use.
• Never use warm or hot water to fill the water tank. Use only
cold non-sparkling drinking water.
• Never clean with scrubbing powders or harsh cleaners.
Simply use a soft cloth dampened with water.
• Descale your machine regularly. Not doing this will make
your appliance stop working properly. In this case, repair is
not covered under your warranty!
• Do not keep the machine at temperature below 0 °C. Residue water in the heating system may freeze and cause
damage.
• Do not leave water in the water tank if the machine is not
used over a long period of time. The water can get contaminated. Use fresh water every time you use the machine.

PREPARING FOR USE
Machine Packaging
The original packaging has been designed and constructed to protect the
machine during transport. We recommend keeping the packaging material
for possible future transport.
Machine Installation
1 Remove the drip tray with grill from the packaging.
2 Remove the machine from the packaging.
3 For best use, it is recommended to:
•
•
•
Choose a safe, level surface, where there will be no danger of overturning the appliance or being injured;
Choose a location that is sufficiently well-lit, clean and near an easily reachable socket.
Allow for a minimum distance from the sides of the machine as
shown in the figure.
4 Insert the drip tray with grill into the machine. Make sure it is fully
inserted.
Note:
The drip tray collects the water that comes out of the coffee dispensing
spout during each rinse/self-cleaning cycle, as well as any coffee that
might be spilled during beverage brewing. Empty and wash the drip tray
daily and each time the full drip tray indicator is raised.
Caution:
NEVER remove the drip tray when the machine has just been turned
on. Wait a couple of minutes for the machine to carry out a rinse/selfcleaning cycle.

Measuring and Programming Water Hardness
Water hardness measuring is very important in order to define the descaling frequency and to install the “INTENZA+” water filter (for more details on
the water filter, see next chapter).
To measure the water hardness follow the steps below:
1 Immerse the water hardness test strip (supplied with the machine) in
water for 1 second.
Note:
The test strip can only be used for one single measurement.
2 Wait for one minute.
The letters correspond to the references that are located at the base of the
“INTENZA+” water filter (see next chapter).

“INTENZA+” Water Filter Installation
We recommend that you install the “INTENZA+” water filter as this prevents
limescale build-up in your machine and preserves a more intense aroma of
your coffee.
The “INTENZA+” water filter can be purchased separately. For further details, please refer to the maintenance products page in this user manual.
Water is a crucial part of every coffee, so it is very important to always have
it professionally filtered. Using the “INTENZA+” water filter will prevent
mineral deposits from building up and improve your water quality.
1 Remove the small white filter from the water tank and store it in a dry
place.
ENGLISH
2 Remove the “INTENZA+” water filter from its packaging, immerse it vertically (with the opening positioned upwards) in cold water and gently
press the sides so as to let the air bubbles out.
3 Set the “INTENZA+” water filter according to the measurements performed (see previous chapter) and indicated on the base of the filter:
A = soft water – equals 1 or 2 on the test strip
B = hard water (standard) – equals 3 on the test strip
C = very hard water – equals 4 on the test strip
4 Put the "INTENZA +" water filter into the empty water tank. Press it
down until it cannot move any further.
5 Fill the water tank with fresh water and put it into the machine.

CHANGING COFFEE BEANS
The machine comes with a removable coffee bean hopper so you can
easily switch from one type of coffee bean to another and enjoy a different
coffee taste.
Note:
You can buy an additional coffee bean hopper as an accessory (CA6803).
To preserve their taste, you can store coffee beans in the bean hopper in
the refrigerator.
Removing the Coffee Bean Hopper
To remove the coffee bean hopper follow the steps below:
1 Move the selector switch to the “

ENGLISH 27
ADJUSTMENTS
The machine allows for certain adjustments so that you can brew the best
tasting coffee possible.
Saeco Adapting System
Coffee is a natural product and its characteristics may change according to
its origin, blend and roast. The machine is equipped with a self-adjusting
system that allows the use of all types of coffee beans available on the
market, except for raw, caramelized and flavoured coffee beans.
The machine automatically adjusts itself after brewing several cups of coffee to optimize coffee extraction.
Adjusting the Ceramic Coffee Grinder
Ceramic coffee grinders always guarantee an accurate and perfect grinding
and a specific coarseness for every coffee speciality.
This provides full aroma preservation, delivering a truly Italian taste in
every cup.
Warning:
The ceramic coffee grinder contains moving parts that may be dangerous. Do not insert fingers or other objects. Only adjust the ceramic
coffee grinder using the grinder adjustment key.
You can adjust the ceramic grinders to set the coffee grinding to your
personal taste.
1 Remove the coffee bean hopper as shown in the “Removing the Coffee
Bean Hopper” section.
ENGLISH
2 Press and turn the grinder adjustment knob inside the coffee bean
hopper one notch at a time. Use the special coffee grinder adjustment
key supplied. You will taste the difference after brewing 2-3 cups of
coffee.
Warning:
Do not turn the coffee grinder more than one notch at a time to prevent damage.
3 The reference marks inside the coffee bean hopper indicate the grind
setting. There are 5 different grind settings to choose from, from position 1 ( ) for coarse grind - lighter taste to position 2 ( ) for fine grind stronger taste. If coffee is watery or is brewed slowly, change the coffee
grinder settings.
