I have a Maxim Expres espresso machine, Model # EX-102. Can you please help me to get an instruction manual? Can I download it, or is there any other way for me to get the basic user information so I can use the machine?

If you are still looking for the espresso carafe for the Salton EX-99, I have a white one with the matching lid available. I can be reached at email@example.com. If I don't hear back from you in the next day or so, it's going to Ebay. Thanks!
HI, I've been looking for the instructions too (thats how I found your question) anyway. I don't know if you have already found the answer but this link takes you to a page where the manual can be found. its scan of a manual an EX-3 in pdf format. Hope it's what you were looking for, James
I own a Maxim Expres machine. I no longer use it nor have the manual, but the following are my recollections. I have the version with an on/off switch on the front and a separate knob to control the steam nozzle.
- Use the carafe to measure the water, then pour into the tank and replace the screw-on lid. - Measure coffee into the metal basket (don't remember the proportions of coffee to water - you have to experiment.) - I tamped the coffee lightly - not as much pressure as you use with a pump-driven machine. - Put the basket into the handle, line up the slots and twist the handle to the side to secure (I'm sure the models vary in this regard). Place the carafe under the drip hole. - Push the button to "on". For espresso, just wait until it stops dripping. This is a steam-driven machine - don't expect much or any crema. - Frothing: If you are going to froth milk, you need to do it WHILE THE COFFEE IS DRIPPING. -Wait until coffee starts dripping into the carafe (otherwise there is not enough steam pressure) -Submerge the nozzle tip under the surface of the milk and turn the knob on the steam nozzle. -After frothing, turn the nozzle to closed and wait for coffee to finish. -If you wait too long to start frothing, the coffee will finish and you will lose steam pressure.
