HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE
Check after transport
After the packaging has been removed, check the integrity of the appliance and the presence of all accessories.
Do not use the appliance in the presence of obvious
damage. Contact the De’Longhi After-Sales Service.
Installing the appliance
The following safety measures must be complied with
when installing the appliance:
• The appliance could be damaged by the penetration
of water.
Do not position the appliance near to water taps or
sinks.
• The appliance could be damaged if the water it
contains freezes. Do not install the appliance in a
room where the temperature can fall below freezing
point.
• Position the power supply cable in a way that it cannot be damaged by sharp edges or by contact with

Pre-heating the coffee machine
It is advised to pre-heat the coffee machine as follows
in order to obtain an espresso coffee at the right temperature:
1. Press the ON/OFF button (the relative indicator light
switches on) (fig. 4) and attach the empty filterholder to the machine (fig. 5).
2. Place a cup under the filter-holder. Use the same
cup in which the coffee is to be served so that it can
be pre-heated.
3. Wait until the OK light comes on (fig. 6) and then
press the coffee button straight away (fig. 7). Allow
the water to run until the OK light switches off and
then stop the water by pressing the coffee button
again (fig. 7).
4. Empty the cup, wait for the “OK” light to switch on
again and repeat the same operation again.
(It is normal for a small, harmless puff of steam to be
released when the filter-holder is removed).
Connecting the appliance
HOW TO PREPARE THE ESPRESSO USING
GROUND COFFEE
Attention! Make sure that the electric mains voltage corresponds with that indicated on the data
plate on the base of the appliance.
1. After having pre-heated the machine as described
in the previous paragraph, insert the ground coffee filter into the filter-holder, making sure that the
projection is correctly inserted into the relative seat
as indicated in fig. 8. Use the smallest filter for one
coffee or the larger one to make two cups of coffee.
2. To prepare one coffee, fill the filter with a level
measuring spoon of ground coffee, about 7gr. (fig.
9). If you wish to prepare two cups of coffee, fill the
filter with two less-than-level measuring spoons
of ground coffee (about 6+6 gr). Fill the filter with
small amounts at a time to prevent the coffee spilling out.
• Only connect the appliance to correctly installed
socket with minimum rating of 10A and efficient
earthing.
• In the case of incompatibility between the socket
and the plug on the appliance, have the plug replaced by a qualified technician.
• The power supply cable on this appliance must
never be replaced by the user as special tools are
needed for this operation. Contact an After-Sales
Centre authorised by the manufacture if the cable is
damaged or must be replaced, in order to avoid all
risks.
Filling the water tank
1. Open the water tank lid (fig. 1) and then lift the tank
to remove it (fig. 2).
2. Fill the tank with fresh water but do not pass MAX.
(fig. 3). Re-position the tank by pressing it lightly in
a way to open the valve situated on the base of the
Attention: for correct use, before filling the filter
with ground coffee always make sure there is no
residual coffee in the filter from the previous infusion.
3. Distribute the ground coffee evenly and press it
lightly using the coffee tamper (fig. 10).

w
1. Prepare the espresso coffee as described in the
previous paragraphs, using cups that are large
enough.
2. Press the steam button (fig. 15).
3. In the meantime, fill a container with about 100
grams of milk for every cappuccino to be prepared.
The milk must be at refrigerator temperature (not
hot!). When choosing the container considers
that the volume of the milk will increase by 2 or 3
times.
Scalding hazard! To prevent sprays, do not release the filter-holder while the machine is dispensing coffee.
4. Position the container with the milk under the cappuccino maker.
5. Wait for the indicator light relative to the steam button to switch on (fig. 16). This indicates that the
boiler has reached the ideal temperature for the
production of steam
6. Open the steam tap for a few seconds to remove
any water present in the circuit. Close the tap.
7. Dip the cappuccino maker into the milk for few millimeters (fig. 17) making sure not to immerse the
raised line on the cappuccino maker (indicated by
the arrow in fig. 17). Turn the knob anti-clockwise,
fig. 18 for at least half a turn. Steam escapes from
the cappuccino maker, giving the milk a creamy
appearance and increasing its volume. To obtain a
creamier froth, dip the cappuccino maker into the
milk and turn the container with slow movements
from the bottom upwards.
8. When the volume of the milk has doubled, dip the
cappuccino maker deep down and continue to heat
the milk. When the desired temperature (ideal value is 60°C) and the desired milk froth have been
reached, interrupt the steam by turning the steam
knob clockwise and release the steam button.
Use the on/off button to switch the machine off (fig.
4) (The relative on light switches off).
9. Pour the frothed milk into the cups containing the
previously-prepared espresso coffee. The cappuccino is ready: add sugar at will and if desired, sprinkle a little powdered chocolate on top of the froth.
8. To remove the used coffee, lock the filter using the
lever in the grip and let the coffee fall out by knocking the over-turned filter-holder (fig. 13).
9. Turn the machine off by pressing the on/off button
(fig. 4).
Before using the machine for the first time all accessories and internal circuits must be washed by making at
least five cups of coffee without using ground coffee.
HOW TO PREPARE THE ESPRESSO USING
PODS
1. Pre-heat the machine as described in the “PREHEATING THE COFFEE MACHINE” chapter, making
sure that the filter-holder is attached to the machine. Hotter coffee is obtained in this way.
Nota Bene: use pods that comply
with the ESE Standard: this will
be indicated on the packaging by
the following mark.
The ESE Standard is a system accepted by the
leading coffee pod manufacturers and allows
espresso coffee to be made simply and without
making a mess.
2. Place the small filter in the filter-holder, making
sure that the projection is correctly inserted into
the relative seat as indicated in fig. 8.
3. Insert the pod, centring it as far as possible on the

Pressing the ground coffee is very important to obtain a good espresso. If you press too hard, the coffee will run out slowly and the cream will be dark. If
you press too lightly, the coffee will run out too fast
and the cream will be very light.
Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filterholder and attach it to the machine: turn the grip to
the right (fig. 5) to prevent water from escaping.
Position the cup or cups under the filter-holder
spouts (fig. 11). It is recommended to warm the
cups before making the coffee by running them under hot water or leaving them to pre-heat on the
cup warmer for at least 15-20 minutes (fig. 12).
Make sure that the OK light (fig. 6) is on (if it is off,
wait for it to switch on) and press the coffee button
(fig. 7). Once the desired amount of coffee has been
obtained, press the same button again (fig. 7). (It is
recommended not to run the coffee for more than
45 seconds).
Turn the grip from right to left to release the filterholder.
