Coffee Machine Scaling - Cleaning Your Coffee Machine
What is "Scale"?
(lime) Scale is the build up of minerals inside your coffee machine.This term is derived from areas that have a high lime content in their water. In fact any mineral that comes out of solution from heat can deposit itself in the water carrying parts of your coffee machine. Typically this will affect your boiler, the pumps and any parts that carry hot water. The areas of your coffee machine where the water sits still for a while (such as the boiler) are worst affected.

Why should I worry about it?
Here are the main effects of lime scale build up:
  • Slowing the water flow
  • Reduction of boiler capacity
  • Coffee machine becomes non-functional
  • Potential heating problems

What determines how often I should Descale?
The quality of your water and the volume of water running through your machine determine the time between scalings.
