Place the cup in the recess on the grill.
Open the receptacle directly under the top panel that contains the brewing buttons. Insert a Lavazza disposable cartridge in the receptacle. Push the receptacle door back into place. You will hear a click when it is properly in place.
Press one of the brewing buttons. Your brewing choices are short, regular and long. Wait for the coffee to fill the cup and the machine to stop. It will stop automatically when it is done brewing and dispensing the coffee.
Empty the collecting drawer underneath the grill when it is full of the used cartridges. The machine automatically ejects the cartridge into the collecting drawer. There are no filters or ground coffee to clean up.
Insert the steam wand into milk. Press the steam button and froth the milk. Press the stop button to stop the steam. Frothed milk is used to make cappuccino and other milk-based coffee drinks.
