For routine maintenance of espresso machines:
Descale the machine every two or three months, for optimum water temperature and full jet of steam. Regular descaling helps to eliminate 70% of malfunctions and extends the life of the machine. Cleancaf, Cafiza, Joe Glow, Brew Rite, Pulycaff are products sold as descaler but they contain only Baking soda which is totally ineffective. Click Here to order Guru's choice Best descaler #DSC-6, available on this Internet store. Make sure the espresso side of the machine is descaled. Automated electronic descaling does not clean espresso side of the machine. When descaling cycles are missed for several months, extra descaling is recommended as one descaling cycle cannot eliminate accumulated sediment. Machines that have not been descaled for several years may need as many as five to six cycles.
Use of Vinegar, R.O water or Distilled water does not eliminate descaling. It damages the boiler wall and gaskets.
2- Avoid using dark roast oily beans. Oily beans and fine powdery grind setting makes over extracted coffee and clogs coffee grinder, cause malfunctions and damage to grinder. Strong Coffee is made with less water (2-Oz or less).
3- Do not refrigerate beans. They absorb moisture and clog and rust the grinder burrs. Clean coffee grinder (Built in or stand alone) every three months.
