    You can adjust the grinder settings using the control in the bean container (from a fine setting for a strong espresso to a coarse setting for a lighter coffee taste).


    Place a cup under the coffee spout to adjust the degree of grinding. Press the cup of "espresso". When the grinder is activated, change the setting using the key.

    With each coffee recipe, you can use the "Memo" button to adjust the strength to your taste and the size of the cup.
