Why should I descale my brewing machine?
Descaling (or decalcifying) helps to remove mineral buildup from the internal workings of your espresso machine or brewed coffeemaker.
- Mineral buildup can slow down or stop the machine from working.
- Descaling can help water flow through the machine, ensure the ready temperature is quickly reached, clean the showerhead screen and portafilter basket, and clear buildup from the steam wand.
