    Query on Descaling an HX machine

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    In my personal pursuit of coffee nirvana I have just taken delivery of -and commissioned - a 2nd hand La Scala Butterfly. The Beast does not appear to have been heavily used, but the previous owner did not descale for the year or so he had it.

    I have been looking through the various posts on descaling. I am left a bit confused - does running a standard descale of an HX do the trick? Or does it not really work due to the internal structure of an HX machine?

    Thanks in anticipation on any advice.
