CLANCY ROSE: Alrighty, and now we are going
to talk about the machine and everything you need for the machine to be ready to prepare
espresso. One of the first things is well turn your machine on and let it warm up and
let it get up to the temperature, operating temperature. One of the next things that is
really important, easy step to miss is filling up the water tank which on this machine is
under this–under this plate right here in the back of the machine. A lot of machines
that do not have an automatic shut off where it shuts off if the water tank is empty, if
it does not have that feature, which this one does, then it can mess up the espresso
machine a whole lot if you are trying to brew coffee and that is empty. You have your espresso
machine all warmed up. You can make sure everything is flowing right out of the steam wand by
just kind of purging that into a towel. You are going to want to be careful and wrap the
towel around it like I just did so you do not burn yourself, maybe flow a little water
through the porter filter in the group head. That is also going to warm up the porter filter.
And you are ready to go. Cool.
