MAKING COFFEE
Selecting the coffee taste
Turn the coffee taste selection dial (B6) to set the required
taste. Turning it clockwise increases the quantity of coffee
beans the appliance will grind and therefore the strength of
the coffee obtained.
Turn the dial to MIN for an extra mild coffee and to MAX for an
extra strong coffee.
Pleasenote:
•	 Thefirsttimeyouusetheappliance,youwillneedtomake
a number of coffees to identify the correct dial position
through trial and error.
•	 Do not turn the dial too far towards MAX, otherwise the
coffee may be delivered too slowly (a drop at a time),
particularly when making two cups of coffee at the same
time.
Page: 6

Selecting the quantity of coffee in the cup
The appliance is set by default to automatically make the
following quantities of coffee:
-	 espresso coffee, when the button is pressed
(≃40ml);
- 	 long coffee when the button (≃120ml) is pressed;
-	 two espresso coffees, when the button is pressed;
-	 two long coffees, when the button is pressed.
To change the quantity of coffee the appliance delivers
automatically into the cup, proceed as described below:
- 	 press the button corresponding to the quantity to be
modified and hold it down until the light flashes and the
appliance starts delivering coffee. Release the button;
- 	 whenthecoffeeinthecupreachestherequiredlevel,press
the same button again to memorise the new amount.
The quantity of coffee in the cup has now been programmed.
Adjusting the coffee mill
The coffee mill is preset in the factory to make coffee correctly
and should not require adjusting initially.
However, if after making the first few coffees you find that the
coffee is too thin and not creamy enough or that delivery is too
slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting the
grinding adjustment dial (fig. 13).
Pleasenote:
The grinding adjustment dial must only be turned when the
coffee mill is in operation.
Ifthecoffeeisdeliveredtooslowlyor
not at all, turn one click clockwise.
For fuller bodied creamier coffee,
turn one click anticlockwise (do
not turn more than one click at a
time otherwise the coffee could be
delivered a drop at a time).
These adjustments will only be evident after at least 2 cups of
coffee have been delivered.
If this adjustment does not obtain the desired result, turn the
dial another click.
Setting the temperature
To modify the temperature of the water used to make the
coffee, proceed as follows:
1.	 With the appliance off and the main switch in the I
position (fig. 3), press the button and hold it
down until the lights on the control panel come on.
