What type of coffee should you use with your onboard coffee maker?
Your machine uses E.S.E. espresso pods (stiff pods) or ground coffee.
Much smaller than Senseo pods, the E.S.E pods are also much stiffer.
The coffee inside the pods has been tamped, so it requires 16-bar pressure to pass through the pod and create the nice crema, which characterizes a perfect espresso.
Extra tips for a perfect use
- Clean the inside of the portafilter (lid) regularly to make sure that there is no coffee left.
You can put the portafilter in the dishwater from time to time.
-You can descale your machine regularly by making a cycle without any pod and mixing 1/3 white vinegar with 2/3 water (mind the projections!).
Do not forget to rinse the water reservoir thereafter.
