5 1 2 FILLING THE WATER TANK 1. TURN THE APPLIANCE on by pressing the ON/OFF BUTTON AND ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER TO THE APPLI- ANCE WITHOUT ADDING GROUND COFFEE. q REMOVE THE WATERTANK by pulling it out (to- wards the front). NEVER USE THE APPLIANCE WITHOUT WATER IN THE TANK and always remember to top up when the level drops to a couple of cen- timetres from the bottom. w FILL THE TANK with fresh clean water taking care not to exceed the MAX level. Reﬁt the tank. PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT TO ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER, position it under the boiler outlet with the han- dle towards the left, push it upwards and at the same time rotate the handle ﬁrmly towards the right. Check that the steam knob is closed. 2. PLACE A CUP UNDER THE FILTER HOLDER. Use the same cup as will be used to prepare the coﬀee in order to preheat it. 3. WAIT FOR THE OK INDICATOR LIGHT to come on, then imme- diately press the coﬀee knob. Run the water oﬀ until the OK indicator light goes out, then inter- rupt delivery by pressing the coﬀee button again. 4. EMPTY THE CUP. Wait until the OK indicator light comes on again then repeat the same operation. (It is normal for a small and harmless puﬀ of steam to be given oﬀ when removing the ﬁlter holder).
6 1 2 1. AFTER PREHEATING the appliance as described above, place the ground coﬀee ﬁlter in the ﬁlter holder, making sure the projection is correctly inserted in the slot. Use the smaller ﬁlter to make one coﬀee or the larg- er ﬁlter to make two coﬀees. HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING THE FILTER HOLDER FOR GROUND COFFEE 2. TO MAKE A SINGLE COFFEE ONLY, place one level measure (about 7 g) of ground cof- fee in the ﬁlter. To prepare two cof- fees, place two loosely ﬁlled measures (about 6+6 g) of ground coﬀee in the ﬁl- ter. 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. 5. PLACE THE CUP or cups under the ﬁlter holder spouts. You are rec- ommended to heat the cups before mak- ing the cof- fee by rinsing them with a little hot water. 6. MAKE SURE THE OK LIGHT IS ON (if oﬀ, wait until it comes on), then press the coﬀee button. When the required quantity of coﬀee has been run oﬀ, press the same button again. (You should not run oﬀ coﬀee for more than 45 seconds at a time). 7. TO REMOVE THE FILTER HOLDER, rotate the handle from right to left. IMPORTANT: to avoid splashes, never remove the ﬁlter holder while the appliance is deliver- ing coﬀee. 8. TO ELIMINATE THE USED COFFEE GROUNDS, block the ﬁlter in place using the lever incor- porated in the handle and empty the coﬀee by turning the ﬁl- ter holder upside down and tapping. 9. TO TURN THE COFFEE MACHINE OFF, press the ON/OFF button. IMPORTANT: the ﬁrst time the appliance is used, all accessories and the internal circuits must be washed through by making at least ﬁve coﬀees without using ground coﬀee. 3. DISTRIBUTE THE GROUND COFFEE evenly and press lightly with the presser NB: Correct pressing of the ground coﬀee is essen- tial to obtain a good espresso. If pressing is ex- cessive, 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 skimpy and light coloured. 4. REMOVE ANY EXCESS COFFEE from the rim of the ﬁl- ter hold- er and attach the ﬁl- ter holder to the appli- ance. Rotate ﬁrmly to avoid leaks of water.
7 1 2 HOW TO PREPARE ESPRESSO COFFEE USING PODS 1. PREHEAT THE APPLIANCE as described in the sec- tion “PREHEATING THE COFFEE UNIT”, making sure the ﬁlter holder is attached. This obtains a hotter coﬀee. NB: Use pods conforming to the ESE standard indicated on the pack with the following logo: THE ESE STANDARD is a system ac- cepted by leading pod producers and enables espresso coﬀee to be prepared simply and cleanly. 2. PLACE THE SMALL FILTER (1 cup or pods) in the ﬁlter holder, making sure the projection is correctly inserted in the slot. 3. INSERT A POD, centring it as far as possible on the ﬁlter. Always follow the instruc- tions on the pod pack to position the pod on the ﬁlter correctly. 4. ATTACH THE FILTER HOLDER to the appliance. Al- ways rotate as far as it will go. 5. PROCEED AS in points 5, 6 and 7 in the previ- ous paragraph.
8 HOW TO MAKE CAPPUCCINO COFFEE 1. PREPARE THE ESPRESSO COFFEES as described in the previous paragraphs, using suﬃciently large cups. 2. PRESS THE STEAM BUTTON and wait for the OK light to come on. This in- dicates that the boiler has reached the ideal temperature for steam production. 3. IN THE MEANTIME, ﬁll a recipi- ent with about 100 grams of milk for each cappuccino to be prepared. The milk must be at refrigerator temperature (not hot!). In choosing the size of the recipient, bear in mind that the milk doubles or triples in volume. NB: YOU ARE RECOMMENDED TO USE SEMISKIMMED MILK AT REFRIGERATOR TEMPERATURE. 4. PLACE THE RECIPIENT containing the milk under the cappuccino maker. 7. POUR THE FROTHED MILK into the cups contain- ing the espresso coﬀee prepared previously. The cappuccino is ready. Sweeten to taste and, if desired, sprinkle the froth with a little cocoa powder. NB: To prepare more than one cappuccino, ﬁrst make all the coﬀees then at the end pre- pare the frothed milk for all the cappuccinos. NB: to make coﬀee again after the milk has been frothed, cool down the boiler ﬁrst or the coﬀee will be burnt. To cool it, place a contain- er under the boiler outlet, press the steam but- ton and run oﬀ water until the OK light goes out. Make the coﬀee as described in the previ- ous paragraphs. 5. DIP THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER into the milk for about 5 mm and turn the steam knob anti- clockwise, taking care not to immerse the raised line on the cappuccino maker (indicated by the arrow). Turn the steam knob at least a half turn anti- clockwise. Steam is discharged from the cap- puccino maker, giving the milk a creamy frothy appearance. To obtain a creamier froth, dip the cappuccino maker into the milk and rotate the container with slow movements from the bot- tom upwards. 6. WHEN THE REQUIRED TEMPERATURE IS REACHED (60°C is ideal), interrupt steam delivery by rotating the steam knob clockwise and at the same time pressing the steam button.
9 IMPORTANT: always clean the cappuccino maker after use. Proceed as follows: 1. DISCHARGE A LITTLE STEAM for a few seconds by rotat- ing the steam knob. This emp- ties any milk left inside the steam spout. IMPORTANT: To ensure hy- giene, you are recommended to follow this procedure each time you make cappucci- no to avoid milk stagnating in the milk circuit. 3. REMOVE THE NOZZLE from the steam tube by pulling it downwards. 4. WASH THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER and steam nozzle thoroughly with warm water. 5. MAKE SURE the two holes shown in are not blocked. If necessary, clean with a pin. 6. REPLACE THE STEAM NOZZLE by in- serting it onto the steam tube and rotating ﬁrmly towards the top of the tube. 7. REPLACE THE CAPPUCCINO MAKER by inserting it and rotating anticlockwise. HOT WATER PRODUCTION 1. TURN THE APPLIANCE ON by pressing the ON/OFF button. Wait until the OK indicator light comes on. 2. PLACE A RECIPIENT under the cappuccino mak- er. 3. PRESS THE COFFEE BUTTON and at the same time turn the steam knob anticlockwise. Water comes out of the cappucci- no maker; 4. TO INTERRUPT DELIVERY OF HOT WATER, close the steam knob by rotating clockwise and press the coﬀee button again. (You should not run oﬀ hot water for more than 45 seconds at a time). 2. WITH ONE HAND, HOLD THE CAP- PUCCINO TUBE FIRMLY and with the other unscrew the cappuccino maker itself by rotating clock- wise and extracting downwards.
10 CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 1. BEFORE PERFORMING ANY CLEANING operations, leave the appliance to cool down and unplug from the mains socket. 2. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS OR ABRASIVE cleaning products to clean the appliance. A soft, damp cloth is suﬃcient. 3. EMPTY AND WASH the drip tray and drip mesh frequently. 4. CLEAN THE WATER TANK regularly. IMPORTANT: Never immerse the appliance in water. It is an electrical appliance. CLEANING THE FILTER HOLDER ABOUT EVERY 200 COFFEES, clean the ﬁlter holder for ground coﬀee as follows: Remove the filter with frother. Clean the inside of the filter holder. Never wash in a dishwasher. Unscrew the cap of the frother by turning anticlockwise. Remove the frother from the container by pushing it from the cap end. Remove the gasket. RINSE ALL COMPONENTS and clean the metal ﬁlter thoroughly in hot water using a brush. MAKE SURE the holes in the metal ﬁlter are not blocked. If necessary, clean with a pin. Replace the filter and gasket on the plastic disk. Make sure to in- sert the pin on the plastic disk into the hole in the gasket indicated by the arrow. Replace the assembly in the steel filter container, making sure the pin is inserted in the hole in the support. Finally, screw on the cap by turning clockwise.
