A:AnswerYou need ground, whether you grind or by ground. It doesn't grind for you. You can use store bought espresso ground - manual says "pre-ground". My husband buys whole beans and grinds himself. We think we shouldn't grind to the finest grind, one less. I use regular coffee but grind it down. You don't have to grind regular down but it makes for a stronger cup.
A:AnswerHi Jess, "15 Bars" refers to the amount of pressure used to pump through your coffee grinds to create espresso. While some units may carry less, our De'Longhi Espresso Machines are at 15 bars to help you create that perfect shot of espresso. We hope this clears things up for you. Thank you.
A:AnswerLots of videos on youtube about how to use a frother. For this one, you turn the knob to the left to warm up the water, then use the switch on the side to turn on the wand, into a cup of milk until it's nice and frothy
A:AnswerHello, since this is a manual unit, you will need to manually turn the device off to stop the pour. If you feel your unit is producing too watery of espresso, we recommend using a finer grind coffee ground or perform a descale of your unit.
