When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the
• Read all instructions.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.
• To protect against fire, electrical shock and personal injury, do not immerse cord, plug or
appliance in water or other liquid.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
• Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before fitting or taking
off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
• Do not operate with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been
damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to the nearest authorized service facility for
examination, repair or adjustment.
• The use of accessory attachments or spare parts not recommended by the appliance manufacturer
may result in fire, electrical shock or personal injury.
• Do not use outdoors.
• Do not let the cord hang over the edge of the table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
• Do not place on or near a hot gas or electrical burner, or in a heated oven.
• Plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn any control to “off”, then remove plug from wall
• Do not use the appliance for other than the intended use.
• DO NOT unscrew or remove boiler cap while the machine is in operation. Wait until brewing
cycle is completed and all water and steam has been used up.
• Appliances with Glass Containers:
A. The container is designed for use with this appliance. It must never be used on a range top.
B. Do not set a hot container on a wet or cold surface.
C. Do not use a cracked container or a container having a loose or weakened handle.
D. Do not clean container with cleansers, steel wool pads, or other abrasive material.
A short power cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping
over a longer cord.
Longer, detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care
is exercised in their use.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating should be at least as great as the
electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is provided with 3- wire, grounding type cord,
the extension should be a GROUNDING TYPE 3 - WIRE CORD. The longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the counter-top or table top where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over.
Your product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature.
If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should
still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.

• Never install the machine in an environment
which can reach a temperature of less than or
equal to 0°C (if the water inside the machine
freezes, the machine might be damaged):
Remove the reservoir by pullling it sideways, at the
same time lifting the tubes (fig. 1).
Rinse the reservoir and fill with fresh water (fig. 2).
Replace the reservoir in its housing, ensuring that
the tubes are immersed in the water (fig. 3). A
simpler way of filling the reservoir is to pull it out
just enough to be able to pour in water directly
from a jug. Never start up the appliance without
water in the tank.
• Place the appliance on a flat work surface away
from water sources such as taps or sinks.
• Check that the voltage of the electrical power
line corresponds to the voltage indicated on the
appliance label. Connect the appliance only to
a power source having a minimum load
capacity of 10 amps and having a proper
grounding feature. The manufacturer takes no
responsibility for any accidents caused by the
lack of a grounding device for the appliance.
• In case of incompatibility between the plug and
In order to obtain a coffee at the right temperature, it is
necessary to pre-heat the machine by keeping it on by
pushing the ON/OFF switch (fig.4), for at least a half-hour
before making coffee. During this time, it is necessary to
leave the filter holder attached to the boiler.
To attach the filter holder, position it under the
boiler shower with the handle towards the left - see
fig. 5; push upwards and at the same time rotate
the handle towards the right; always rotate as far
as it will go).
After a half-hour the coffee can then be made as
described below.
To speed up this operation, it is also possible:
1 To turn the machine on by pushing the
ON/OFF switch (fig.4).
2. To insert the filter holder in the boiler without
coffee or coffee pod. Place a coffee cup
beneath the filter holder.
3. To wait until the light "OK" turns on (fig. 6) and
press the delivery switch (fig.7), letting the
water exit until the “OK” light goes off; then
stop the dispensing by pressing the coffee
dispenser switch.
4. Then empty the water from the cup, wait until
the “OK” light turns back on and repeat the
same operation again.

1. After having carried out the pre-heating of the
machine, as described in the previous section,
insert the 1-cup filter (the medium-sized one of
the three provided) in the filter holder (fig. 8)
and fill it up with 1 even measuring spoon of
ground coffee – about 7 grams (fig. 9). If you
need to prepare 2 cups, use the 2-cup filter (the
largest of the three filters provided), fill it with
two less-than-even measuring spoons of ground
coffee (about 6+6 grams) and attach the 2-cup
In order to attach the adaptor to the filter
holder, insert it into the spout, push the adaptor
up and turn it (see fig. 10).
2. Spread the coffee evenly and press by using
the tamper (fig. 11). NOTE: pressing the
ground coffee is very important in order to
obtain a good espresso coffee. If you press too
hard, the coffee comes out slowly and the
cream is dark in colour. If, on the other hand,
the coffee is not pressed enough, it will come
out too quickly and the cream will be light in
3. Remove any excess of coffee from the filter rim,
put the automatic coffee press on the ground
coffee (fig. 12) and attach the filter holder
(remembering to rotate it, as far as it will go).
4. Place the pre-warmed cup or cups on the drip
tray under the filterholder spout (fig. 13 or 14).
5. When the "OK" pilot lamp lights (fig. 6), press
the delivery switch. When the desired quantity
of coffee is obtained, turn the delivery switch
(fig.7) off.
6. Wait a few seconds before detaching the filter
holder by turning the handle from right to left.
ATTENTION: to avoid squirts, never detach the
filter holder while the machine is dispensing.
7. To remove the used coffee grounds retain the
filter in position using the thumb guard fitted to
the handle; turn the filter-holder upside down
and knock the coffee grounds out (fig. 15).
8. Switch off the machine by pushing the ON/OFF
switch (fig. 4).
1. Carry out the pre-heating of the machine as
described in the “PRE-HEATING OF THE
MACHINE” section.
Insert the pod filter (the smallest of the three
filters provided) in the filter holder.
2. Insert the pod in the pod filter (fig. 16).
3. Attach the filter holder, remembering to rotate
it, as far as it will go.
4. Place the pre-warmed cup on the drip tray under
the filter holder spout (fig. 13) and proceed as
described in points 5 and 8 of the previous
ATTENTION: The first time that coffee is
prepared, it is necessary to wash all of the
accessories and the internal circuits allowing
at least a half litre of hot water to flow
through, as described below in the
In order to obtain a good espresso coffee, it is
necessary that the delivery take place with the
boiler at its optimum pressure. This pressure is
attained when the pointer of the pressure gauge is
within the grey-coloured section (fig. 17).
1. Prepare one or two espresso coffee, using 2
sufficiently large cups
2. Press the steam switch (fig. 18) and wait until
the “OK” light (fig. 6) turns on, meaning the
boiler has reached the ideal temperature for
producing steam.
3. Pour approximately 100 grams of milk into the
container for each cappuccino to be made. It is
important to use fresh milk which has not been
boiled (not UHT) and especially not preheated.
When choosing the container to use for the
milk, keep in mind that the frothed milk will
increase by two or three times its original
4. Place the recipient under the cappuccino maker.
5. Immerse the frother into the milk by about 5 mm
(fig. 19) and turn the steam release knob in a
counter clockwise direction, fig. 20 (by turning
the knob more or less, it is possible to vary the
bar290 GB

amount of steam which will come out of the
frother tube). At this point, the milk should
begin to increase in volume and assume a
dense and creamy texture.
6. When the volume of milk has doubled, immerse
the frother deeper into the milk to continue to
froth and heat the milk (fig. 21).
Once the desired temperature has been
reached (the optimum temperature is 60°C), in
order to interrupt the release of steam, turn the
handle in a clockwise direction and press the
steam switch, as indicated in figure 18.
7. Pour the frothed milk over the coffee, with the
aid of a spoon. Then, as a final touch, sprinkle
a bit of cocoa powder over the frothy milk to
have a perfect cappuccino.
IMPORTANT: The milk frother for cappuccinos must
be thoroughly cleaned after each use. Proceed as

the steam control knob (fig. 20).
• Unscrew the milk frothing bit from the tube by
turning in a clockwise direction (fig. 22) and
wash it carefully with warm water.
• Make sure that the three holes of the milk
frother, illustrated in fig. 23, are not plugged.
If necessary, clean the holes with a pin or
needle and soaking the frother bit in warm
1. To clean the machine, do not use solvents or
abrasive detergents. A soft damp cloth should
be used to clean the surfaces.
2. Clean the filter holder, drip tray, boiler and
water tank regularly.
3. Check from time to time that the 3 filters for
espresso coffee are not obstructed. If necessary,
carefully clean the filter with hot water,
scrubbing with an abrasive pad.
It is advisable to de-scale the espresso coffee
machine every 4 to 8 months (depending on the
hardness of the water and the frequency of use)
using white wine vinegar.
Proceed as follows:
1. Fill the water reservoir with water and add 8
large spoonfuls of vinegar.
2. Operate the appliance, as if making coffee,
until the tank is empty, then rinse thoroughly.
Sometimes open the steam tap.
3. Repeat this procedure 2 - 3 times with fresh
water only in order to remove any residual descaling agent.
• Clean the steam release tube carefully so as to
not get burned.
• Screw the milk frothing bit back into place.
1. Press the ON/OFF switch (fig. 4) and wait until
the “OK” pilot lamp lights (fig. 6).
