Open the lid and fill the container with cold, clean drinking water to within about 1” (2 cm) of the top. A valve in the base of the container will ensure that no water can escape. Close the lid and place the container in the ma- chine, pushing it straight to the back.
Setting the serving sizes The flavor of the coffee produced depends on the type of coffee, how finely the beans are ground and the quantity of water used. Espresso, coffee and tea cups vary in size. To ensure the machine uses exactly the amount of water to suit your taste and your cups, there is a choice of four different serving sizes (max.
Turn the program selector clockwise to the “On” position (with or without lighting). The following will appear in the display window: If the machine is cold and the rinse program has been selected, the following message will be dis- played once the water is hot: Once the water is hot, it will automatically be ex- pelled from the coffee dispensers.
The procedure is the same for the other two cof- fee serving buttons. The volumes of water programmed in will now be dispensed every time. To program in the volume of water for a tea cup, feature “Prog. hot water” must be turned on.
Press the hot water button d. There will be a few seconds delay before water is dispensed. When the cup is as full release the hot water but- ton d. The following will appear in the display window during this procedure: The volume of hot water programmed in will now be dispensed every time.
Making coffee It is extremely important to run a rinse cycle be- fore the coffee system is used for the first time. This will occur automatically if the rinse feature is turned “on” in the Programming mode and the machine is still cold. When warming up the appliance, the display win- dow will show: Once hot, water will flush out of the coffee dispen-...
The smaller the volume of coffee/espresso, the more important it is to pre-warm the cup. Place the cup under the hot water spout. Press the hot water button d and half fill the cup. Press the hot water button d again to stop. Leave the cup for a few seconds to warm, then pour the water away.
Press ENTER to start the rinsing process. Hot water will be dispensed from both spouts, warm- ing the system. The display window will read: Place the empty, pre-warmed cup under the two coffee dispensers, and prepare the coffee. The serving dispensed by each of the coffee serv- ing buttons can be programmed according to indi- vidual taste (see the section on “Setting the serving sizes”).
The following will appear in the display window: Wait until the following appears in the display win- dow: Place a cup under the two coffee dispensers. The coffee is always dispensed simultaneously from spouts. Press the desired coffee serving button once. The coffee will be prepared.
Place a cup under each of the coffee dispensers. Press the desired coffee serving button twice in quick succession to bring up two cups g in the display window. The machine will fill the cups in two stages with a slight pause in between.
To make cappuccino, a china or porcelain cup, a heat resistant pitcher, and milk are needed. Cold, low-fat milk (1.5% fat) is best for cre- ating foam. Ideally it should be prepared in a cold, stainless steel pitcher that nar- rows towards the top.
Position the steam spout just below the surface of the milk in the pitcher and turn the steam selector counterclockwise. Move the pitcher in circles until a thick foam ap- pears, then lower the spout deeper into the milk to heat the rest. The milk must not be allowed to boil or the foam will collapse and a skin will form.
