How does the machine work?

Here’s a brief gist about how actually the machine works, activates and deactivates. The coffee maker comes with a capsule tray that works as on/off button which is the only button on the machine. This is a pressure sensitive flat and opens with a light touch, thereby, activating the machine. You got to slide the tray back into the machine until you hear a click and the machine deactivates. To activate the coffee process, simply slide the lid in the capsule tray until it is closed and the coffee goes out.

When you are done, all you got to do is simply slide the lid back and remove the capsule. That’s all!

There might even be times when the coffee machine fails to function properly. In that case, always have the contact of reputed repair shops in your hand. There is a well-reputed company in Pittsburgh that can makes these repairs seamless. You must find out about their this company and call them for help in case the machine malfunctions.

The coffee machine is made up of different components like the moulded shaped plastic with matt finish. The water tank is produced by the same technique in transparent plastic which is the material that is easy to keep clean.

Albus has an orange light diode at the bottom on the left, which signals when the machine is connected to a power source. This makes it quick and easy to determine whether the machine is on or off.
