We are looking for the instructions. I know from this thread that "FrEdErIcK" had them (8 years ago), and offered to email them to specific people - but, no I don't think they were ever posted on site. There was a video mentioned, but I don't know how to get to it even if it is still posted.
Our measuring cup is also busted, but we figured out that "1 Tasse" = 1/3 cup and "2 Tasse" = 2/3 cup. So we can make do without that. As far as we know so far, all other parts are in working order.
Mainly I'm just the "instruction-reading" type. We still have the original box, and it mentions adding milk (instead of? in addition to?) water, and even adding sugar BEFORE making the coffee. I just wanted to clarify the "how, when, where" so as to not clog up the machine.
Thanks for providing this forum - you're right, there's not much else "out there" which is a shame as this is an excellent unit, providing (as the box claims and our memories support) wonderfully creamy espresso and the "steamed milk" affect of cappuccino without the danger or clean-up chore of that hot metal wand.
