SOURCE: where to fine a owners manual

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.

That's what I remember, hope it helps.

SOURCE: Hi, we have a Krups

suggestions include very cold milk.  having the nozzle just barely in for frothing.  
On my model there's an air passage in the nozzle that foams quite nicely.  If you have that too, it might be clogged with milk.  You have to keep these clean with every use.

SOURCE: can't get milk to foam

Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Cappucinatore won't pull milk through the tube

Hi
There should be a small pin on the top of the Cappuccinator. When it starts, twist the pin slowly until the milk flows up the tube. Then leave it where it is and it will work all the time.

I have a Gaggia "Coffee"


First thing I would check is the end of the steam wand to make sure it is not blocked. Then if you are getting hot water for making espresso, I would remove the top cover and check the topmost thermostat.

Please could you tell me what the 3rd button (from the left), which has "drops" under it, is for on my Trevi Automatica?


As far as I remember, It should switch paranello stick on the right of the machine (milk steamer) from steam to hot water (for making tea for example) and back. Try pressing and turn the knob at the right side of the machine.

DONT KNOW HOW TO USE THE LEFT SIDE


Add water to the left side, tighten well. Put milk in the stainless steel carafe.
Add coffee to the left side container in the filter basket. Place carafe under the coffee container. Turn knob toward you to the 'off' position. Turn power to 'on' on Espresso (left) side. Once coffee is about halfway brewed, place stainless steel carafe with milk under the steamer with spout just below milk line, and turn knob away from you to the 'on' position. Frothing the milk is an art form and becomes easier with practice. Make sure all steam is depleted, then enjoy your cappuccino!
To make espresso, do the above without the milk.

Steam won't come out to steam the milk in my espresso maker


with the unit unplugged...try sticking the steamer in a tall glass of water & vinegar mix (equal parts) and let it soak for a couple hrs. then take and fill the machine w/plain water and put the carafe under like you would if you were making a cappuccino...and let it run a few times. you may also need to take a pin and put it in the end of the steam tube if it doesn't unclog. i've had this happen a couple times on this unit. i've owned it for 5 yrs and it's still going strong.

How strong should the output for the cappucino/ latte steamer? Mine just sort of dribbles the steamed milk. Thanks


When steaming the milk/cream make sure to hold the rubber nozzle to the very bottom of the cup and also make sure you are leaving enough water to produce the steam after brewing a cup of espresso. Also you'll want to check the breather tube that sticks up from the nozzle and make sure it is free of buildup.When the steamer is operating correctly it should produce a loud growling sound.

How do I make cappuchino cofee?


If you are looking for a manual, you can contact Jura Capresso directly. If you are just looking for directions for making a cappuccino in general:
Brew the espresso.
Use the steam wand/frothing element and a pre-chilled frothing pitcher (the pre-chilling is optional, but it is considered good form) to steam about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of milk.
A true cappuccino does not involve pouring all of the milk directly into the espresso - you would use a spoon to take about two spoonfuls of the top of the steamed milk and place it on top of the espresso.
You can sprinkle cinnamon, use a cinammon stirring stick, or pour cinnamon cappuccino flavoring on top of the cappuccino for good form (but this part is optional).

Enjoy!

Steamer does not work


Your steam wand is probably clogged with milk. Remove the panarello outside and stick a paper clip up the tube. Then try to run water out of the steam wand.

 

Hope this helps!
