Setting the water hardness
We advise you to adjust the water hardness setting to the water hardness level in your region for optimal performance and a longer lifetime of the machine. This also prevents you from having to descale the machine too often. The default water hardness setting is 4: hard water.
Use the water hardness test strip supplied in the box to determine the water hardness in your region:
1 Immerse the water hardness test strip in tap water or hold it under the tap for 1 second.
2 Wait 1 minute. The number of squares on the test strip that turn red indicate the water hardness.
Set the machine to the correct water hardness:
1 Tap the Settings icon and scroll from left to right to select 'Water hardness'.
2 Select the water hardness level. The number of red squares selected on the display should be the same as the number of red squares on the test strip.
3 When you have set the correct water hardness, tap the confirmation icon to confirm.
Adjusting the grind setting
You can change the coffee strength with the grind setting knob inside the bean container. The lower the grind setting, the finer the coffee beans are ground and the stronger the coffee becomes. There are 12 different grind settings you can choose from.
The machine has been set up to get the best taste out of your coffee beans. Therefore we advise you not to adjust the grind setting until you have brewed 100-150 cups (approx. 1 month of use).
You need to brew 2 to 3 drinks before you can taste the full difference. Do not turn the grind setting knob more than one notch at a time to prevent damage to the grinder.
1 Tap the Beans icon in the main menu.
2 Tap on ¨Grinder¨.
3 Watch the how to video.
