How to prepare the espresso coffee
1 Unscrew the water tank cap by turning it anti-clockwise.
2Using the carafe supplied (fig. 1) pour water into the boiler (fig.
2) according to the amounts shown in the table on page 10.
Do not exceed the amounts shown as this could cause the
appliance to malfunction.
While filling the boiler make sure the ON/OFF switch is in the
OFF position.
3 Carefully close the boiler cap by turning it clockwise.
4 Insert the filter into the filter-holder. (fig. 3).
5 Fill the filter with ground coffee using the measures described in
the table (page 10) about 7 g per cup. Fill the filter evenly in
small doses to prevent the ground coffee from overflowing. (fig.
IMPORTANT: Before adding the ground coffee to the filter
holder, make sure there is no coffee left from previous usage.
It is important to use medium ground coffee. (Avoid using too
finely ground coffee otherwise the filter can become blocked).
6 Remove any excess coffee from the filter rim (fig. 5).
7 Attach the filter holder to the machine by positioning the han-
dle to the left of the boiler outlet, then pushing upwards and
turning the handle to the right (fig. 6).
8Place the carafe with the lid on the drip tray, make sure the
nozzles on the filter holder fit inside the opening on the carafe’s
lid (fig. 7).
Make sure that the steam knob is turned off.
