Q. How Often Should I Back-flush my Machine?
Domestic manual coffee machines should be back flushed using the premium espresso power once a week, or once every kilo of coffee, depending on which comes first. Commercial Coffee Machines should be back-flushed daily.
Q. How Often Should I Service my Machine?
You should get your domestic coffee machine serviced once every year to ensure all the filters and parts are functional. Our general service also includes a boiler check to ensure there is no calcium build up that could damage your machine. We recommend commercial coffee machines are serviced every six months.
Q. What Water Should I Put Through my Machine?
This depends on the boiler and components in your machine. We have filters specifically designed for Stainless steel or Copper boilers, please contact us for more information. Or visit our “Water Filtration” page.
Q. How Often Should I Descale my Machine?
If you have a manual coffee machine, you should not descale this yourself. Manual coffee machines require the boiler to be drained correctly to avoid residue, being stuck in the heat exchange. Putting descaling solution through manual coffee machines risks damaging your machines element or contaminating your coffee. Descaling your automatic machine should be done every three months if you are using filtered water. If you are using tap water, we recommend descaling your machine every two weeks or as per the manufacturers instructions. Keep in mind Australian water is much harder than European water, so more the better.
