Danger of scalding! Dispensing may be preceded by short sprays of hot water. The steam
wand can reach high temperatures; do not touch it with bare hands.
Warning! Always make sure the portafilter is inserted before steaming or dispensing hot water.
Note: If the steam function is selected, but not used for a period of 1 minute, the machine will
automatically exit the steam function mode.
For best steaming results allow the unit to fully warm up before steaming.
Turn on the machine, if not already on, with the main power button (15); the power light (16) illuminates.

over the drip tray and the portafilter is inserted into the machine.
Press the steam button (21). The brew lights (18 and 20) turn off. The steam light (22) starts to blink.
The machine is ready for steam dispensing when the steam light (22) remains fixed.
Place a container below the steam wand and open the hot water/steam knob (6) by turning it clockwise
all the way for a few seconds, so that residual water exits from the steam wand. Shortly after, a steady jet
of steam will be dispensed. (Fig. R)
Close the knob (6) by turning it counter-clockwise, and remove the container.
To guarantee the best results when steaming milk, always use cold milk.
Immerse the steam wand in the milk and open the knob (6) by turning it clockwise all the way; turn the
container with slow upward movements so that it is warmed evenly. (Fig. S)
After using the steam for the desired time, close the knob (6) by turning it counter-clockwise; remove the
container with the warmed milk/beverage.
Press the steam button (21) to deselect the steam function.
After pressing the steam button, the machine automatically returns back to its normal mode for brewing
espresso and hot water.
IMPORTANT: Prime the water circuit as described in section 4.5 to rinse the inside of the steam wand of
any residual milk (also see section 9).
The same operation can be used to heat other beverages.
After this operation, clean the steam wand with a damp cloth.
