Helpful Hints
• For espresso coffee with a powerful aroma,
we recommend using freshly ground special
espresso coffee.
• Keep ground coffee in the refrigerator; it will
keep its aroma longer.
• Do not overfill the filter holder with ground
coffee - remove any excess ground coffee
from rim of filter holder. This will prevent
leaks as well as prevent grounds from
entering into drink.
• Use the back of the measuring spoon to
press or «tamp» the ground coffee into the
filter.
Important !
• Before using for the first time, or after not
having used for a considerable time, rinse
the appliance as indicated in paragraph
«using for the first time - rinsing».
• Fill the water tank with cold water - do not
use warm or hot water.
• Screw the water tank cap on tightly - use
caution when removing the cap for the
water tank as it’s under pressure - allow
the machine to completely cool before
attempting to remove the cap.
Check that the appliance is unplugged.
• Unscrew the cap of the water tank (2).
• Measure out 8 oz (240 ml) of water and
pour into the tank (3).
Important : for «hot» coffee, never use more
than this amount of water.
• Put the lid back on and close tightly (4).
• Fit the coffee filter (without any coffee) into
the appliance (5): turn it firmly from left to
right to put it into ‘locked’ position (6).
• Place one container/cup under the filter
holder and another under the steam nozzle.
• Plug the appliance in.
• Turn the selector knob to the “ ” position
(8).
• The ON/OFF pilot light will light up.
• After a few minutes, the water will boil and
hot water starts dripping. When the
container/cup is half full, turn the selector

(see helpful hints).
• Unscrew the lid of the water tank (2).
Measure out the right amount of water for
your needs and pour it into the water tank.
For instance :

be made at one time, withpout adding
water to the tank.
• Pour the water into the tank (3) and
completely screw down the lid (4).

turning it from left to right and locking it
firmly into place (6).
• Place a cup or low recipient (max. 1oz or
20 ml) under the filter-holder (7).
• Turn the selector knob to “ ” (8).
• The ON/OFF pilot light will light up. After 1
to 2 minutes, the coffee starts dripping. Wait
until the coffee has stopped dripping before
removing the container/cup and then turn
the selector knob to the stop position. (1).
Be careful! We advise you not to switch off
the appliance before the coffee cycle is
completely finished. At the end of the cycle,
steam will dry out the coffee grounds thus
producing a disc that is dry and easy to
remove.

preheating.
• Once the liquid is hot, turn selector knob
back to stop and unplug (1).
• Before turning the knob again, turn the
knob to the “ ” position (9) to remove any
steam, take care to put a cup underneath
the steam nozzle.
Be careful to avoid the risk of burns.
Important: Immediately after use, wash the
steam nozzle with a moist sponge.
