Once the machine is turned on and the coffee capsule is inserted, proceed as follows: • Hold in the stand-by button (6) and the short (4) or long (5) coffee buttons together, as shown to right. After about 3 seconds, dispensing of the coffee will begin. • Once the desired amount of coffee is reached, release the buttons. • The quantity dispensed thereafter will be equal to the memorized quantity. Stand-by If the coffee machine has not been used for 10 minutes, it will enter stand-by mode.
