Getting Started

Sanremo YOU: Setup Guide

Congratulations on your new Sanremo YOU! In this guide, you should find everything you need to set up and operate your commercially certified dual-boiler espresso machine.

Step 1: Unboxing and Inspection

  • Remove the machine from the box and place it on a stable, level surface.
  • Before turning on the machine, inspect for damage that may have occurred during shipping. If you notice any damage, contact us immediately.
  • Please note that it is normal for a small amount of water to be on the machine when it arrives. It is also normal for the portafilter to not fit perfectly at 90 degrees!
  • Save all packaging, as this is needed for returns and repairs.

Step 2: Water quality

  • Before introducing water to your machine, it's essential to test it to ensure it's adequately soft, around 50 ppm (parts per million). Use the included water test strips from your home barista starter kit to verify the hardness of your water. To learn more about our recommendations for water quality, check out our blog post, The Importance of Water and Your Espresso Machine.
  • Once you've confirmed your water quality is adequate, fill the water reservoir located underneath the top tray. Note: Do not use Zero water or reverse osmosis, as the machine will not register that the reservoir has been filled.
