Hot water will run out of both spouts into the drip tray once the machine has heated up.
  • Page 20: Pre-Warming Cups

    Making coffee Pre-warming cups The cups should always be pre-warmed to allow the flavour to develop and be retained. The aroma of espresso does not react well to cold. The smaller the volume of coffee/espresso, the more important it is to pre-warm the cup. Use a plate warming drawer if you have one.
