residual pressure must be released by slowly turning the steam
knob (fig. 10) so that the residual steam can escape.

opened when the boiler is hot.The tank therefore cannot be
refilled until all the water has been used or the boiler cools
down (to make this a quicker process, open the steam knob).

Coffee made directly into cups
The carafe can be used to make 2 or 4 cups of coffee.
If you prefer to make 2 cups only, fit the adaptor for cups to the
lower section of the filter-holder (fig. 12) and place the cups direct-
ly underneath the nozzles. In this way, the coffee will flow directly
into the cups.
