To clean the American Coffee elements
EN
We recommend rinsing the machine parts with one or two cycles with running water only, without coffee
powder. This will remove all traces of powder deposited during transport.
• Place the filter support (10) inside the machine, taking care that the notch in the support meets with
the release button (25) see (Fig.4).
• Place the American coffee filter (9) in the filter support (10) .
• Close the top lid (8).
• Place the carafe (2) on the hot plate (4).
• Switch on the “AUTO/CAFFE’ ” button (E).
• As soon as the water comes out of the spout (11) in the filter support (10), switch off the “AUTO/CAFFE’ ”
button (E).
Warning!
The hot plate (4) switches on as soon as the American Coffee is poured and therefore, during this stage, it is
necessary to keep hands well away from it and to remove the carafe using the handle (1).
Remove all water from tank, glass carafe and overflow grill after upon action.
Now you can start to use this machine for making your delicious coffee.
HOW TO MAKE ESPRESSO

be flashed. Wait until a small amount of water flows out, which means that the boiler is pressurised.
• Press “ESPRESSO” button (L) off. As soon as the system has reached the required temperature, the
“ESPRESSO” light (L) will be off.
• Preheat the coffee cups by putting them on the cup rack (26) • Insert the correct filter into the filter
holder, choose the one-cup filter (18), the two-cup filter (19) or the pod filter (20).
• If using the filters (18) or (19), fill them with one or two measures of ground coffee and press down with
the measure (23); alternatively use the filter (20) and insert the standard 7g coffee pods.
• Insert the filter holder and turn it firmly to the right..
If too much ground coffee is put inside the filter, turning the filter holder may prove difficult and/

EN
USEFUL TIPS FOR PREAPARING A GOOD ITALIAN ESPRESSO
The ground coffee in the filter holder has to be pressed lightly. Whether the coffee is stronger or weaker
depends on the degree the coffee is ground, the quantity put into the filter holder and the pressing. Just
a few seconds are needed for the coffee to flow down into the cups. If the dispensing time is longer, this
means that the coffee is ground too fine or that the coffee put into the filter holder has been pressed
too much.
HOW TO MAKE DRIP COFFEE
Manual mode
• Open the upper lid (7) and (8).
• Check the proper water level in the tank (7) and, if need be, fill with fresh still water. The reference
marks of the carafe (2) and the water tank (6) are intended to make drip coffee, even though the dispensed coffee level is slightly lower than the filled water level as ground coffee absorbs some water.
The use of paper filter is recommended for a deeper cleaning of the components.
• Lift the hot water pour nozzle (27) (Fig.6)
• Position the paper filter onto the filter (9) by adapting it on the rim.
• Pour the ground coffee into the filter.
Initially the use of a measuring spoon of ground coffee is recommended for a stronger coffee,
then the amount of coffee to be used will suit your own taste. Besides an overly ground coffee is
not recommended as it could obstruct water flow while dispensing.
• Lower the hot water pour nozzle (27) (Fig.6)
• Close the upper lid (7) and (8).
• Place the carafe (2) onto the hotplate (4).
Make sure the dispenser (11) of the filter support (10) is aligned with the hole situated on the
carafe lid (Fig. 7) in order to avoid coffee leakage.
• Press the button (E) “AUTO/CAFFE’ ” twice to start the manual mode.
• Stop dispensing by pressing the button (E) “AUTO/CAFFE’ ” again once the required amount has been
reached.
If the carafe is removed before the end of dispensing process to pour a cup of coffee , be careful
to put it back under the dispenser (11) within 30 seconds to avoid hot water or coffee leaks.
Automatic mode
• Once having carried out the filling procedures of water and coffee and the proper positioning of the
carafe, as described in the manual mode, proceed as follows:
• Press the button (E) “AUTO/CAFFE’ ” once to start the “Auto Start” function. The LCD display (24)
lights up and shows the duration of the function ”Heating plate heat maintaining” (A) for 5 seconds.
• Press the button “PROG”(F) to check the automatic mode activation time setting.
