Coffee machine maintenance and care is often an afterthought, something we all know should be done on a regular basis but too often it feels like hard work. We have a range of coffee machine maintenance and care products that are easy to use and keep your coffee machine working as it should, so you can continue to enjoy great coffee moments.
Coffee machine descalers
Descaling is an important process for any machine that regularly uses water. Tap water contains minerals which include calcium and magnesium, during the heating process some of the water will be evaporated and this process leaves behind mineral deposits on the machines heating elements. Hard water areas see higher levels ofl limescale as the water in these areas contain more minerals compared with soft water areas.
It's important to regularly descale your coffee machine, especially in hard water areas. If a coffee machine is left without being descaled the limescale can build up and cause issues. These issues include; blockages within the machine, water not being able to be heated to the right temperature and potentially the coffee machine breaking down.
Many Melitta bean to cup coffee machines have descaling lights which indicate when the machine needs to be descaled, you can set your water hardness level so this is taken into account. If you don't have this feature we suggest descaling every 3 months and reducing this to 2 months if you live in a hard water area.
We have a range of descalers fit for filter coffee machines, fully automatic coffee machines and kettles in tablet, powder and liquid form. Each product is very simple to use and comes with detailed instructions on how much to add, how long to leave and how to rinse the machine of all residue.

Coffee machine water filters
To fight off limescale more proactively you can add a hard water and limescale filter to your bean to cup coffee machine. This filter removes the minerals from the water in the tank before the water is used in your coffee machine. Improving the quality of the water that goes into your coffee means a better tasting cup of coffee, and less impurities entering your coffee machine. This is a great, proactive way to help prevent harmful limescale buildup which is especially important in hard water areas but will occur over time in all water areas.
