Astuces faciles pour l'entretien de votre machine à café

Taking care of your coffee machine is crucial for delicious coffee in every cup. We've put together some simple tips to help you keep your machine in tip-top shape, hassle-free.

Clean regularly

  • After each use, remove and clean the filter holder. A quick rinse with lukewarm water is often enough.
  • Empty and clean the drip tray and water tank once a week to prevent residue buildup.

Use filtered water

  • Fill the reservoir with filtered water to reduce scale buildup inside your machine.

Descale your machine

  • Make sure to descale your coffee machine regularly (ideally once a month) to remove limescale deposits. For this task, we recommend using Urnex liquid descaler specially designed for domestic coffee makers. This product is very effective and compatible with all brands of home coffee machines.

Compared to vinegar, Urnex descaler offers several advantages:

  • More effective in removing limescale deposits.
  • Without the often unpleasant smell of vinegar.
  • It effectively breaks down limescale accumulated in your machine's heating elements, ensuring optimal operation and extended life.
  • Its formula is composed of biodegradable ingredients, without phosphate or odor, making it an environmentally friendly option.

Avoid harsh cleaners

Never use harsh cleaning products like bleach. They could damage the components of your machine
