From the manufacturer
An espresso is a far richer drink with a more intense taste than regular brewed drip coffee. An espresso is normally 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of strong coffee. Espresso should be served immediately after brewing. If the espresso is too strong, you can add hot water. Add sugar to taste.
Water in the Boiler
The water in the boiler of the machine will get hotter during the brewing process. Towards the end of the brewing process the water will be so hot that it would burn your espresso. Therefore you never want to process all the water through the coffee as this will result in a burnt taste.
1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed and frothed milk on top. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or cinnamon on top of the milk froth. For a stronger taste increase the amount of coffee. For a milder taste increase the amount of milk.
Foamy layer of milk froth on top of hot milk. Which kind of milk? Skim milk and 1% milk will produce more milk froth than 2% or regular milk.
Cleaning The Frother Nozzle:
Wait until the machine has cooled down. The metal frother pipe may still be hot. Pull the frother nozzle off and thoroughly rinse under warm water. Make sure the nozzle is free of any milk deposits. Replace the frother nozzle. Make sure it is firmly pushed up the frother tube.
De-calcifying every 3 months
Remove the nozzle from the steam pipe. Fill carafe (2 oz. of white vinegar and 6 oz. cold water) and pour into the boiler. Close cap. Insert the filter holder with the basket into the machine and lock the filter holder. Place carafe without the lid under the filter holder on the drip tray. Place an empty cup under the steam pipe. Make sure the coffee/steam selector points to the cup symbol and the steam knob is closed. Turn the machine on and let the solution pass through the filter holder into the machine. With the carafe about ¾-filled, slide the selector to the steam symbol. Pass the solution through the steam pipe. Once steaming has stopped, close the steam knob. Repeat once or twice.
Always unplug the machine before cleaning. Never use scouring agents. Wait until machine has cooled down. Never immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. Never hold the machine under running water. To clean, simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth.
Clean the Filter Basket
Clean the filter basket, the filter holder, and the glass carafe in a hot water/ mild soap solution. For your convenience, the filter holder, filter basket, and glass carafe can be put in the dishwasher's upper level, away from any heating element. Make sure the holes in the filter basket are free of old coffee deposits.
Clean the Tray
Remove the tray cover and drip tray and clean with hot water/mild soap solution. Replace the tray cover and drip tray and make sure the drip tray is locked in place. Wipe the inner screen with a wet cloth. The screen is located above the filter holder area.

Today i finally figured it out. I made the espresso as usual (and yes I've fiddled with ALL the settings to trt to fix the issue). The only rhing i did different was leave the pot lid off (little black lid with hole for the espresso to drip through). I watched as it brewed and discovered that the dirst 3 shots were right, but the final one was all water. So i made it again, using same amount of grounds, but with 1 oz less water (1oz = 1 shot). I watched again, and this time, it was perfect. I made my latte in a smaller cup to make up for the loss of a shot. My latte is perfect! So apparently the issue is that the silver cup that you put grounds into, isnt big enough for 4 shots worrh of espresso. Filling in to the 4 mark, is only enough for 3 shots.
This isnt a problem for people who only want 3 or less shots, but for someone who wants 4, its a big deal.
My suggestions would be to make a smaller latte or make 2 separate shots and fill each ground cup to the 3 mark.
All in all, its a wonderful product for the price!!!!
Super easy maintenance, I personally just fill the included carafe with half water, half vinegar pour it in boiler then close cap, run it once and then run it twice more with just plain water to remove vinegar smell and that has ensured a fresh smelling tasting cup of coffee every time since.
Definitely take the time to read the instructions, once you get the hang of it it's almost impossible to mess up. It has it's quirks but for the price it's quality is really hard to beat.
I like that the cap to the water reservoir doesn't require a lot of turning, but it also seems too easy to turn past its locked position. Perhaps I'm not describing it well, but I'd rather be able to turn it and lock it, but occasionally, I turn it too far then have to do it again.
I had an earlier version of this machine and while cleaning out the drip tray wasn't a huge inconvenience, I like that the new version has a removable tray.
