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 :)

Thanks in advance.

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.

Hi,
In fact, I happened to see that exact page on your website while searching for the manual. Thank you for your response, I will need to go out and buy some descaling solution soon :)
