Tap water (normal household potable water) is perfectly OK as long as it is free of odors that might alter the taste of the beverage. Bottled water is also OK.
Do not use refrigerated or warm water as this might impact the temperature of the beverage.
Use always fresh water and replace the water if system has not been used for more than 2 days.
For cold beverages, use water at ambient temperature, never refrigerated water, and place two or more ice cubes (20g per ice cube) in the cup.
To be noticed that water hardness is the first reason of machine calcification and so it is recommended to descale the machine frequently (every 3months or less according to water hardness).
Scale deposits naturally form in your coffee maker. Regular descaling helps protect your coffee maker and ensures it a longer life. It will also help maintain a quality of coffee that remains constant over time.
Follow the instructions in your personal instruction manual for descaling your machine as techniques vary according to the model you own.
We recommend using the descaling product provided by the manufacturer.
For a daily average usage of 4 cups and if the water is hard, we recommend descaling your machine at least every 3 months.
If you live in an area where the water is very hard, you may wish to descale more often.
Yes, if it is coated with scale.
Clean it with water and/or cleaning products recommended by the device manufacturer.
This can prevent clogging in the water outlet and hygiene issues.
If the membrane is torn or detached, we recommend placing a container under the coffee outlet and press the Lungo button (no capsule) to rinse the coffee grounds from the inside the brewing unit.
We recommend regular cleaning and descaling of your machine regardless of which capsules you use.
Make sure that the drip-tray has not overflowed and empty if necessary.
Verify that the drip-tray is correctly positioned.
If your appliance has not been used for several months, the pump may have difficulty restarting the water flow.
When you select a small or large cup, the pump makes a lot of noise but no drops come out.
- Remove the capsule if there is one.
- Fill the tank to the maximum with hot water (60°C).
- Turn on the machine and select the large cup.
- Take out and reposition the tank every 3 seconds. There should be air bubbles escaping from the tank valve.
- The priming is done and the water flows through the coffee outlet.

If priming is not possible after these manipulations, take the appliance to an authorized service center.
With paper-based capsules, sometimes a few drops of water leak into the cup at the beginning of brewing.
Paper capsules do not interact with the machine in the same way as aluminum capsules. It takes slightly longer for the machine to pierce the paper capsule, and sometimes a very small amount of water may flow around the capsule and into the cup. A few water drops should not affect the taste or aroma of your coffee.
After following the instructions in the user manual for starting the appliance, make sure that your electrical socket is working by plugging another appliance. If it still does not work, do not try to dismantle or repair the appliance yourself, instead, take it to an approved repair centre
Do not use your appliance. To avoid any danger, have it replaced by an approved repair centre.
An expresso has a stronger aroma than a "normal" coffee.
In fact, an expresso can be distinguished by its rich aroma and the creamy foam on the surface of the cup.
This requires a pressure of 15 bar (achieved only by espresso machines), water heated to 90-92°C and finely ground and measured coffee (7 g per cup).
After preparing your coffee, wait a few moments to allow the capsule to cool and eject it (gently lift the lever) into the capsule bin.
It is recommended to empty the bin when it's full or at least once a day, and to clean it regularly.
We advise you to enjoy your paper-based capsules within four weeks of opening the pouch for the best coffee experience. The shelf-life of an unopened sachet is six months.
On rare occasions, the paper capsule may tear or the membrane detach while brewing coffee, which may cause coffee grounds to leak into your cup.
Although coffee grounds in your cup are harmless, this does not give the best coffee experience and we do not recommend drinking the cup of coffee. We recommend placing a container under the coffee outlet and press the Lungo button (no capsule) to rinse any coffee grounds from the inside of the brewing unit, then brew a new cup of coffee with a new capsule.
We recommend using the paper capsules within 4 weeks after opening the sachet, keeping them in their sachet by closing it with a clip and storing the sachet in a dry, cool place, sheltered from light.
As with any organic food matter, there is a risk of mould developing. How long this may take depends on the temperature and humidity levels of the environment in which the capsules are stored. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the capsules are safe to use beyond four weeks after opening the sachet.
We advise you to leave the paper capsules in their satchet, closing it with a clip after each use.
If you put the capsules in a jar or a closed box, we cannot guarantee the shelf-life of your capsules within 4 weeks of opening the sachet.
Both paper and coffee grounds are organic materials and when left wet, mould may form.
We advise you to empty the capsule bin at least once a day. If there is mold inside the bin, wash it with warm water and soap.
The presence of mould in the capsule bin does not affect the preparation of cups of coffee.
Gluten is a protein generally found in cereals and sometimes in certain additives. We do not use gluten-containing ingredients in our paper capsules. They contain only freshly roast and ground coffee, without any additives.
Your appliance contains valuable materials which can be recovered or recycled. Leave it at a local civic waste collection point.
