Connecting the appliance
Important! Check that the mains power
supply voltage corresponds to the value indicated
on the rating plate on the bottom of the appli-
Only connect the appliance to a correctly installed
socket with a minimum capacity of 10A and that
is supplied with an efficient earth connection.
If the power socket does not match the plug on
the appliance, have the socket replaced with a
suitable type by a qualified professional.
• Place the appliance on a flat surface.
• Turn the container lid in an anti-clockwise di-
rection and lift it (fig. 1).
• Pour the desired amount of coffee beans into
the container (fig. 2).
• Tighten the lid by turning it fully home in a
clockwise direction (fig. 3). A safety device
prevents switch-on if the lid is not well in-
Do not attempt operation without the cover
being in place.
• Extract the necessary amount of wire and in-
troduce the plug into the socket (fig. 4).
• In the models provided, turn the selection
knob (E) onto the amount of coffee that cor-
responds to the number of cups for which
the beans must be ground (fig. 5). However,
use this only as a reference, as the amount
will vary according to taste, the type of roast-
ing of the coffee beans, as well as the se-
lected grinding level: in any case, never fill
above the MAX level embossed on the coffee
• Press the lid to activate the coffee grinder
(fig. 6) and hold it down until the desired
level of grinding is obtained.
• In the models with grind setting indicator
lights (F) (coarse, medium, fine), press the
lid and release it when the indicator light rel-
ative to the desired grind setting switches on.
Remember that once the lid is released, even
for an instant, the appliance resets and con-
siders the start of grinding as if containing
whole beans.
• Always keep the lid of the bean container
closed hermetically in order to preserve the
flavour and the aroma of the coffee beans.
• Only grind the amount of coffee necessary at
the time.
• Never overfill the bean container.
As per general indications, consider one ta-
blespoon of beans per cup (e.g. 4 spoons of
coffee beans for 4 cups). Naturally, optimal
amounts, defined on the basis of personal
taste, will be identified with time.
• For the models with grind setting indicator
lights, consider that:
COARSE” grinding is ideal for percolators;
“MEDIUM” grinding is ideal for drip and
moka pots;
“FINE” grinding is ideal for espresso coffee
• A minute must pass before successive use in
order to prevent the appliance overheating.
• Always clean the appliance after use to guar-
antee good quality in terms of coffee fresh-
ness, especially when grinding coffee after
having ground other foodstuffs (e.g. sugar).
Do not grind oil seeds (e.g. peanuts) or hard
products (e.g. rice).
