Preparing Espresso
NOTICE
If, before starting to make the espresso, you have taken hot steam from the
machine, we recommend you draw a little hot water before commencing
with the espresso preparation. If you do not, it may be that the coff ee tastes
burnt. Hold an empty cup under the milk frother z. Turn the steam control
knob 2 in the direction "+". Turn the function rotary knob 5 to the posi-
tion " " so that hot water fl ows out of the nozzle. Wait a few seconds
before turning the function rotary knob 5 back to to the position " ".
Then turn the steam control knob 2 back to closed (in the direction "-").
NOTICE
Always ensure that the espresso sieve 0 q is clean and free of coff
ee
powder residues.
When the appliance is heated-up: 1)
To prepare an espresso, place the small espresso sieve 0 in the
sieve carrier w.
To prepare two espressos, place the large espresso sieve q in the
sieve carrier w.
Fill the small espresso sieve 2) 0 to the max marking with espresso powder.
This equates to approx. 7g of powder or a levelled measuring spoon 9.
or...
Fill the large espresso sieve q to the max marking with espresso powder. This
equates to about 7g + 7g of powder or two levelled measuring spoons 9.
Tamp the espresso powder down with the help of the compactor on the 3)
measuring spoon 9 or on the appliance 6. Then, if necessary, fi ll it with
more espresso powder, until the espresso sieb 0 q is full up to the Max
marking. Tamp the coff ee powder down once again.
NOTICE
Compaction of the coff ee powder is an essential process for the prepara-
tion of an espresso. If the espresso powder is compacted very strongly, the
espresso runs through more slowly and there is more crema. If the espresso
powder is not so strongly compacted, the espresso runs through more
quickly and it creates very little crema.
11

Insert the sieve carrier 4) w into the appliance by placing it at the marking “IN-
SERT” and then turning it anticlockwise to the marking “LOCK”.
Place one (or two) cup(s) under the sieve carrier openings. We recommend 5)
that you rinse the cups out with hot water beforehand, so that the espresso
does not cool so quickly.
As soon as the green heating-up control lamp 6) 4 glows, you can turn the ro-
tary switch 5 to the position “ ”. The espresso fl ows into the cup(s).
WARNING
Never remove the sieve carrier w during the espresso output!
The resulting spray of hot espresso would lead to injury!!

the sieve carrier w.
When the cup(s) are fi lled to the desired quantity (about 20 ml), turn the 7)
rotary switch 5 back to the position “ ”.
You can now drink the espresso.
After every use, remove the used espresso powder from the espresso sieve 8) 0
q. To do this, fold the sieve blocker e upwards so that the espresso
sieve 0 q cannot fall out of the sieve carrier w. Now empty the espresso
sieve 0 q.
NOTICE
Absolutely clean the hot water shower t after every use. Refer to the
chapter "Cleaning and Care".
NOTICE
Regularly empty the drip tray r, at the latest when the red fl
oat in the
recess 7 of the drip grill 8 is visible.
12 Espresso Machine

NOTICE
You can also use espresso pads for the preparation of espresso. Use only
espresso pads that correspond to the ESE standard.
The ESE standard is a system accepted by the leading manufacturers of
espresso pads, which makes possible the simple and clean preparation of
espresso.
Heat the appliance up as previously described.
Place the small espresso sieve 0 for one espresso in the sieve carrier w
(one Pad) or the large espresso sieve q for two espressos (two Pads).
Place the pad (pads) centrally in the espresso sieve 0 q. Take note of the
instructions given on the packaging of the espresso pads.
Insert the sieve carrier w with the espresso sieve 0 q and Pad as described
in the chapter "Preparing Espresso".
Now continue as described in the chapter "Preparing espresso".
Preparing Cappuccino
WARNING
Be careful when working with steam for the milk foam produc-
tion!
The hot steam or hot splashes can lead to injuries!
Always operate the steam regulation knob 2 slowly.
Fill a container for frothing (preferably made of stainless steel) to third with 1)
cold milk.
Ensure that the steam regulation knob 2) 2 is closed (turn it as far as it will go
in the direction “-”).
Push the milk foamer 3) z out to the side. Thereby, take hold of it only by the
grip u.
Turn the rotary switch 4) 5 to the position “ ”. Wait until the green heating-up
control lamp 4 glows.
Hold an empty container under the milk frother 5) z. Slowly turn the steam
control knob 2 in the direction “+”. Condensed water/spray comes from
the nozzle. Thus, the nozzle and the water circulation inside the appliance is
cleaned.
13
Espresso Machine
GB
IE
When only steam comes out of the nozzle, turn the steam control knob 6) 2 in
the direction “-” until no more steam comes out of the nozzle. Pour the water
in the container away.
Now hold the frothing container in your hand, so as to feel the milk tempera-7)
ture, and guide the nozzle of the milk frother z lightly into the milk. Thereby,
hold the frothing container at a slight angle.
Slowly turn the steam control knob 8) 2 in the direction “+”.
Rotate the container for frothing in a circular motion and hold the tip of the 9)
nozzle just below the surface of the milk: deep enough so that the milk does
not spray in all directions and high enough so that a thick foam is produced.
Done properly, a deep buzzing sound is audible.
As the milk froth rises place the nozzle deeper in the milk, to froth up the next 10)
“layer” and to avoid a burnt taste in the foam.
Finally, insert the nozzle completely and close the steam control knob 11) 2
a little, so that the milk is heated. Hold the frothing container at a slight angle,
so that the milk gently spins around while it is being stirred with the nozzle.
When the milk foam has the desired consistency, turn the steam control knob 12) 2
off (up to the stop in the „-“ direction).
First then remove the nozzle from the milk. 13)
Turn the rotary switch 14) 5 to the position “ ”.
NOTICE
For the preparation of cappuccino always use bigger cups than for espresso,
because foamed milk will be added.
For the preparation of a cappuccino, proceed exactly as you would for an 15)
espresso (see chapter “Preparing espresso“/ the heating up is no longer nec-
essary). Allow the water to pass through only for about twice as long as an
espresso (about 40 ml).
Switch the appliance off with the on/off switch 16) 3.
Now add the frothed milk into the previously prepared espresso. The cappuc-17)
cino is now ready. According to taste, you can add sugar or sprinkle it with
cocoa powder.
14 Espresso Machine
GB
IE
NOTICE
You can also use the milk frother z to heat up other liquids, such as cocoa
or tea.
NOTICE
Absolutely clean the milk frother z after every use. Refer to the chapter
"Cleaning and Care".
Tips for the milk froth
In principle, any type of milk can be frothed, including soy and rice milk.
However, some types of milk can only be frothed with limitations.
Skimmed or low-fat milk does not burn as easily as whole milk, but with a too
low fat content there is a risk that the milk froth will not be good. Therefore, if
possible use a milk with 3.5% or 1.5% fat content.
Well chilled milk can be frothed better than less cold.
Do not froth milk up a second time, otherwise it could burn on.
Allow frothed milk to stand for about 30 seconds before you pour it onto the
espresso. Thus, larger bubbles burst and still fl uid milk falls to the bottom. You
can then pour the fi
ne froth onto the espresso.
15
