ADJUSTMENTS
The machine allows for certain adjustments so that you can brew the best
tasting coffee possible.
Saeco Adapting System
Coffee is a natural product and its characteristics may change according to
its origin, blend and roast. The machine is equipped with a self-adjusting
system that allows the use of all types of coffee beans available on the
market (not for caramelized beans).
The machine automatically adjusts itself after brewing several cups of
coffee to optimize the extraction of the coffee to the compactness of the
ground coffee.
Adjusting pre-brewing
During prebrewing, ground coffee is moistened. This will ensures a better
coffee aroma.
Refer to the “Programming” chapter to select the prebrewing settings.
Adjusting the ceramic coffee grinder
Ceramic coffee grinders always guarantee accurate grinding for every coffee blend and prevent the beans from overheating.
This provides for full aroma preservation, delivering the truly Italian taste in
every cup.
Warning:
The ceramic coffee grinder contains moving parts that may be dangerous. Therefore, do not insert fingers and/ or other objects. Only adjust
the ceramic coffee grinder using the grinder adjustment key. Turn
off the machine by pressing the ON/OFF button and remove the plug
from the socket before carrying out any type of operation inside the
coffee bean hopper.
You can adjust the ceramic grinders to set the coffee grinding to your
personal taste.
Warning:
The grinder adjustment knob, inside the coffee bean hopper, must be
turned only when the ceramic coffee grinder is working.
This adjustment can be carried out by pressing and turning the grinder
adjustment knob inside the coffee bean hopper, using the grinder adjustment key provided with the machine.
ENGLISH 19
