Easy step-by-step instructions to descale your coffee machine, kettle and urn!

Descaling is a very important step in maintaining your coffee machine & ensuring you get a perfectly hot & fresh cup of coffee. Descaling isn’t just for your coffee machine though; we recommend regular descaling on kettles & urns as well to keep them in tip-top shape.

Before we start, we recommend that you descale your coffee machine, kettle or urn every 2 – 4 months depending on how many cups you have per month and the water hardness of your area.

To descale your coffee machine, it is best to consult your manufacturer’s instruction manual for descaling and rinsing procedures as the below are general instructions. Most machines have a descaling setting.

Coffee Machines

  1. Empty 100ml (single dose) Caffenu Eco Descaler into the water tank with 500 ml of water to create the descaling solution.
  2. Place a large container under the brew spout and run approximately 200 ml of the solution through the brew cycle into the container.
  3. Run approximately 200 ml; of the solution through the steam wand (if your machine has one) into the container.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all of the solution is used up, allowing the machine to sit for 5 minutes in between each run.
  5. Empty the water tank and rinse well.
  6. Rinse the machine by running one full tank of clean water through the machine (repeating steps 2 & 3 with water only).
  7. After you are done descaling your machine, clean the appliance and surrounding area with a clean, damp cloth.

Kettles & Urns

  1. Empty 100 ml (single dose) Caffenu Eco Descaler into the kettle or urn with 500 ml of water. For larger urns, use 200 ml (double dose) with 1l of water.
  2. Bring the appliance to boil and allow the boiled solution to stand for 10 min to ensure optimum scale removal.
  3. Empty the appliance carefully, directly into a sink and rinse thoroughly.
  4. Wipe the appliance with a clean and damp cloth.

In addition to using the Caffenu Eco descaler, we recommend using a Caffenu Cleaning Capsule (for your specific machine). Additionally, we recommend cleaning tablets if you own a professional, and/or fully automatic/bean to cup machine. Doing so not only ensures optimal machine performance and maintenance, but also for your health and the perfect cup of coffee every time!
