With it's beautifully accented matt silver, chrome plated auto-illuminating buttons the Impressa F8 fits in any kitchen or office.

At this time the left rotary dial illuminates. Just turn the dial and change the cup size from 1 oz. to 8 oz. It can't get any more convenient.
- Push the 2-cup button and the F8 will always produce twice as much coffee as shown in the display. So, if the cup size is set to 7 oz. the F8 will brew a total of 14 oz. With the height adjustable coffee spout any size cup will fit easily underneath.

No more work, no more guessing.

With the left rotary dial you can time the steam output from 3 to 120 seconds. Or you can just stop the steam output by turning the dial back to the cup symbol. Need more steam?

- The frother function can be set from 3 to 120 seconds. This comes in handy when using the frothXpress system (see below). For more information on this system watch the video clip entitled frothXpress Plus on this page.
- FrothXpress System
- The frothXpress system helps you to prepare perfect cappuccinos and lattes cup after cup. It automatically siphons milk from any milk container, combines it with hot steam and delivers hot, frothed milk into your Cappuccino cups. Turn the dial of the frothXpress to the latte setting and the frothXpress will deliver hot steamed milk with very little or no froth for that delicious Latte.
- Setting the steam output to a certain time lets you fill cup after cup with the exact same amount of hot steamed or frothed milk. The result: always the same taste and no more wasted milk!
- Fill as many cups as you want then add your shot of espresso and serve identical lattes or cappuccinos.
- Temperature control! For that extra hot Cappuccino or Latte move the frothXpress Plus dial from the "-" settings towards the "+" settings to increase the temperature of the milk.
