How to make espresso coffee using pre-ground
coffee
1. After preheating the appliance and filter holder as described in the previous paragraph, use the smaller filter to
make one coffee or the larger filter to make two coffees.
2. To make just one coffee, place one level measure of preground coffee (about 7 g) in the filter. (fig. 16).
To make two coffees, place two loosely filled measures
(about 6+7 g) of pre-ground coffee in the filter.
Fill the filter a little at a time to prevent the pre-ground
coffee from overflowing.
Please note:
If you want to change the delayed start up time set, repete
the above illustrated operations.
Bear in mind that at the time set, the appliance will start
to make drip coffee only. The espresso coffee machine will
not come on.
Important:
For correct operation, before filling with pre-ground coffee,
make sure there are no coffee residues left in the filter from the
last time you made coffee.
3. Distribute the pre-ground coffee evenly and press lightly
with the presser (fig. 17).
Correct pressing of the pre-ground coffee is essential to obtain a good espresso. If pressing is excessive, coffee delivery
will be slow and the froth will be dark. If pressing is too
light, coffee delivery will be too rapid and the froth will be
skimpy and light coloured.
MAKING ESPRESSO COFFEE
Please note:
The first time you use the appliance, wash all accessories and
rinse the internal circuits by proceeding as though you were
making coffee until you have used at least two tanks of water.
You can then proceed to make coffee.
19
4. Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filter holder
and attach to the appliance. Turn the handle firmly towards the right (fig. 14) to avoid water leaking out.
5. Place the cup or cups under the filter holder spouts. You are
recommended to warm the cups before making coffee by
rinsing them with a little hot water.
6. Make sure the OK light is on (if off, wait until it comes on),
then turn the selector dial to the
position (fig. 15).
When the desired amount of coffee has been delivered,
position to interrupt the
turn the selector dial to the
flow.
7. To remove the filter holder, turn the handle from right to
left.
2. Turn the selector dial to the position (fig. 20).
3. In the meantime, fill a recipient with about 100 grams of
milk for each cappuccino to be prepared. In choosing the
size of the recipient, bear in mind that the milk doubles or
triples in volume.
Please note:
You are recommended to use skimmed or semi-skimmed milk at
refrigerator temperature (about 5°C).
4. Place the recipient containing the milk under the cappuccino maker.
5. Wait until the OK light comes on. This indicates that
the boiler has reached the ideal temperature for steam
production.
6. Remove the cappuccino maker by rotating to the left (fig.
21). During this operation, avoid touching the boiler outlet
as it is hot. Then place the recipient containing the milk
under the cappuccino maker.
7. Dip the cappuccino maker in the milk for a few millimetres. Turn the steam dial anticlockwise (fig. 18). Steam is
delivered from the cappuccino maker, giving the milk a
creamy frothy appearance. For a creamier froth, immerse
the cappuccino maker in the milk and move the container
with slow upward movements.
8. When the milk has doubled in volume, immerse the cappuccino maker deeply and continue heating the milk.
When the required temperature (the ideal is 60°C) and
froth density is reached, interrupt steam delivery by turning the steam dial clockwise and turn the selector dial to
the position.
9. Pour the frothed milk into the cups containing the espresso
coffee prepared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and if desired, sprinkle the froth with a little
cocoa powder.
Danger of burns!
To avoid splashes, never remove the filter holder while the appliance is delivering coffee.
8. To dispose of the used coffee, block the filter in place
using the lever incorporated in the handle, then empty
the grounds by turning the filter holder upside down and
tapping it firmly (fig. 18).
9. To turn the appliance off, press the
button on the back
of the machine.
How to prepare espresso coffee using pods
1. Preheat the appliance as described in the section “PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT”, making sure the filter holder
is attached. This obtains a hotter coffee.

by the following symbol.
The ESE standard is a system accepted by leading
pod producers and enables espresso coffee to be
prepared simply and cleanly.
•
2. Place the small filter in the filter holder, making sure the
projection is correctly inserted in the slot as shown in fig.
13.
3. Insert the pod, centring it as far as possible on the filter
(fig. 19). Always follow the instructions on the pod pack to
position the pod on the filter correctly.
4. Attach the filter holder to the appliance. Always turn as far
