The Hipresso fully automatic coffee machine must be descaled properly. The descaling program not only removes all the limescale, it also cleans the milk system. But how does this work?
Depending on the amount of coffee you drink and where you live, your coffee machine needs to be descaled about once every one and a half to two months. Your coffee machine will indicate itself when it needs to be descaled.
However, if you experience problems with the flow of your coffee or milk, we always advise you to descale your coffee machine. Many problems are caused by a dirty coffee machine!
Your coffee machine can be descaled with all types of descalers, but we recommend using agents that are intended for a coffee machine. Descalers for coffee machines are made to be used for this purpose and will be more targeted.
We use Durgol. Descaling a coffee machine is important and we therefore recommend that you use well-known brands that are known to work. This way your coffee machine will continue to work well in the long term!
Even if you have a water softener at home, it is important to descale your coffee machine. In addition to the lime build-up in your coffee machine, coffee residues also remain in the machine. The milk system of the coffee machine is also cleaned during descaling.
When you use our Durgol coffee machine descaler, you descale 1 bottle at a time. You mix this by adding the same bottle of water once.

Place the residue container under the outlet. This means you don't have to empty the coffee machine water container every time. It is also useful to take the descaler with you.
Choose the 'menu' button under the options.
When you are in the menu, choose the option 'Descaling' under the heading 'Cleaning'.
Empty the water reservoir completely and rinse it twice with tap water. The entire bottle of Durgal descaler can then be emptied into the water container. Fill the same bottle of Durgal with water and add this to the water bowl as well.
The coffee machine starts up. Descaling takes about 30 minutes.
