Soak weekly in a good backflush solution such as Cafetto or Espresso clean on a weekly basisThe machine has recently had the seal on the group replaced, and it also came with a spare seal. I am later going to work out how to remove the mesh screen from the group and soak that too.
Can anyone give some tips and tricks for best getting the portafilter clean
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NEVER use back flush detergent in the water tank. If the machine requires descaling, use Restore descaler or Bomobras triple action descaler as specified. Note that citric acid based descalers are not recommended for machines with aluminium boilers....Also, is it ok to run cafetto through the water reserve and boiler?
Good stuff....Lucky you came here for some instructions!(i got the cafetto barista kit as that is what is sold at the coffee shop i go to)
