Posted Sun Apr 6, 2014, 10:58am Subject: Manual for Krups #863
Hi all, I just joined CoffeeGeek and would like to ask the community if someone has an electronic version of the manual for the Krups Espresso machine model #863 (I saw some posts calling it the Espresso Maximo). I did look around a bit and found some old posts regarding this manual, but all the links were dead :(
My father has changed espresso machines and he gave me this machine :)
Also, I would like to know if people who have had this machine for some time have some tips or useful maintenance information that I could use :)

I had posted or e-mailed how to use this machine somewhere but can't find it. I do have an 863 (http://www.frcndigital.com/coffee/Coffee80.html). Since it has a number of aluminum parts, including the thermoblock, it is important to use non-scaling water to limit the need to descale, and to be kind when descaling, using a solution that is OK to use on aluminum. Other than that, like all other espresso machines, it thrives on freshly-ground coffee.
