Using Coffee Beans

Do not use green, caramelised or candied coffee beans as they could stick to the coffee mill and make it unusable.

  1. Fill the beans container with coffee beans.
  1. Place a cup under the coffee spouts.
  2. Lower the spouts as near as possible to the cup. This makes for a creamier coffee.

 

Selecting a Drink from the Menu

  1. Press Left Arrow_Black.PNG or Right Arrow_Black.PNG until your chosen drink is displayed then select the drink:
  • Espresso
  • Double Espresso
  • Coffee
  • Long Black
  • Americano
  1. Preparation begins. An image of the selected drink appears on the display, together with a progress bar which gradually fills to indicate the stage of completion.
  • You can prepare two cups of espresso coffee at the same time by pressing 2X Coffee Size.PNG during preparation of one espresso (the image is displayed for a few seconds at the start of preparation).
  • While the machine is making coffee, delivery can be cancelled at any moment by pressing CANCEL.
  • As soon as delivery has ended, to increase the size of coffee in the cup, just press EXTRA. When desired size is reached, press CANCEL.
Various alarm messages could be displayed while using the appliance (FILL TANK, EMPTY GROUNDS CONTAINER, etc.). The actions to take are explained in section ‘Displayed messages’.
  • If the coffee is delivered a drop at a time, too weak and not creamy enough or too cold, read the tips in sections ‘Adjusting the coffee mill’ and ‘Troubleshooting’.
  • Preparation of each coffee can be customised (see sections ‘Customising the beverages’ and ‘Memorising your personal profile’).
  • If ‘Energy Saving’ mode is active, you may have to wait a few seconds before the first coffee is delivered. 

 

Making Coffee Using Pre-ground Coffee 

  • Never add pre-ground coffee when the machine is off or the grounds could spread through the inside of the appliance which may cause damage.
  • Never use more than one level measure or it could dirty the inside of the coffee maker or block the funnel.
If you use pre-ground coffee, you can only make one cup of coffee at a time.

Tips for a Hotter Coffee

If you prefer a hotter coffee, you should:

  • Perform a rinse cycle by selecting the RINSING function in the settings menu.
  • Warm the cups with hot water using the hot water function (see section ‘Delivering hot water’).
  • Increase the coffee temperature in the settings menu (see section ‘Coffee temperature’). 

 

Adjusting the Coffee Mill

The coffee mill is set by default to prepare coffee correctly and should not require adjusting initially.

However, if after making the first few drinks you find that the coffee is either too weak, not creamy enough or delivery is too slow (a drop at a time), this can be corrected by adjusting the grinding adjustment dial.

  • The grinding adjustment dial must only be turned when the coffee mill is in operation during the initial phase of coffee preparation.
  • If the coffee is delivered too slowly or not at all, turn one click clockwise towards 7.
  • For fuller bodied creamier coffee, turn one click anti-clockwise towards 1 (do not turn more than one click at a time otherwise the coffee could be delivered at a drop at a time).
  • These adjustments will only be evident after at least two cups of coffee have been delivered. If this adjustment does not obtain the desired result, turn the dial another click.
