HOW TO CHOOSE THE FLAVOR OF THE
DRIP COFFEE
HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO USING THE FILTER
HOLDER FOR GROUND COFFEE
1.After preheating the appliance as described in the
paragraph above, place the ground coffee filter in
the filter holder, making sure the tab is correctly
inserted in the housing as shown in fig. 18.
2.To prepare a single espresso, fill the filter with a level
measure of ground coffee, about 7 grams (fig. 19).
To prepare two coffees, use the filter and fill with two
loosely filled measures of ground coffee (about 6+6
grams). Fill the filter a little at a time to prevent the
ground coffee from overflowing.
IMPORTANT: For correct operation, before adding the
ground coffee to the filter holder, clean the filter from
residues of ground coffee from the previous infusion.
Note: Use top quality fine-ground coffee for espresso
coffee machines.
3.Distribute the ground coffee evenly and press lightly
with the tamper (fig. 20).
Note: Correct pressing of the ground coffee is
essential to obtain a good espresso. If pressing is
excessive, coffee delivery will be slow and the froth
will be dark. If pressing is too light, coffee delivery
will be too rapid and the froth will be thin and light
colored.
4.Remove any excess coffee from the rim of the filter
holder and attach the filter holder to the appliance.
Rotate firmly (fig. 15) to avoid leaks of water.
5.Place the cup or cups (ideally preheated by rinsing
with a little hot water) under the filter holder spouts
(fig. 21).
6.Make sure the espresso OK indicator light (fig. 16) is
on (if off, wait until it comes on), then select
(fig.
17) until the required quantity is obtained. To
interrupt, place the selector back in the
position
(fig. 14).
With the AccuFlavor System, the flavor of the drip
coffee can be chosen according to personal taste. By
turning the AccuFlavor selector knob (fig. 12), the
coffee machine can be set for coffee with a strong
(STRONG position) or light (LIGHT position) taste.
The AccuFlavor Selector changes the strength of the
coffee.
HOW TO MAKE ESPRESSO
FILLING THE WATER TANK
Lift the cover and remove the water tank on the left (fig.
13) by pulling it upwards. Fill the tank with cold clean
water. Replace the tank, pressing lightly to open the
valve located on the bottom of the tank.
The tank can also be filled without removing it, pouring
the water directly from a carafe.
Note: Never use the appliance without water in the
tank. Always remember to add more water when the
level drops to less than an inch from the bottom.
PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT
To obtain espresso at the right temperature, the coffee
machine must be preheated. Turn the selector knob to
the
