After being forced to part with my beloved due to moving interstate, I now have tiny sparkling bits of steel or copper come out and into the cup with each shot.
I took it apart as much as possible but could only access boiler through a tiny hose inlet, it loked like the element or whatever it is was corroded and rusty looking.

I have noticed it getting less and less each time, I have flushed it heaps with descaler and water but am concerned that it might be bad for health reasons to drink...

Any suggestions for how to clear it out good would be much appreciated.
