Great Taste. Less Waste.

Why Descale?

If you love your coffee, you will probably be making plenty of usage from your coffee machine to get your daily fix. But have you ever thought about how dirty your machine can get?

It is important to keep your coffee maker clean and also prevent the growth of bacteria, yeast or even mould.

By descaling your Nespresso machine regularly, you will make sure to remove not just hard water deposits, but also all those other nasties.

Also, the cleaner your machine is, the better your coffee is going to taste. We recommend coffee machine descaling at least twice a year

Descaling can be done in six easy steps and should take about 20 minutes.

Follow these steps:

Prepare your machine

  • Turn on your machine
  • Eject any capsule, empty the capsule container and the drip tray
  • Put in 1 litre of warm fresh water (4 cups) in the water container.
  • Mix in a sachet of descaling solution.
  • Place a container that can hold up to one litre of water under the coffee outlet.

Descale Mode

  • Pixie, Essenza, Citiz and Inissia – simultaneously press on two buttons for three seconds until the lights will start to flash quickly; this indicates the machine is in descale mode
  • U – simultaneously press all three buttons for three seconds until the lights will start to flash quickly; this indicates the machine is in descale mode
  • Lattisima – put in the descaling nozzle, press the cappuccino button.

Descaling your machine

  • Press the Lungo button and wait until the flow has finished
  • Fill the water tank with the used solution
  • Press the Lungo button and let all the descaling solution flow through the machine again


  • Empty and rinse out the water container.
  • Refill it with fresh water.
  • Press the Lungo button to empty the container of its content.
  • Empty and rinse out the drip tray.

Exit the Descaling Mode

  • Pixie, Essenza, Citiz and Inissia – press the two buttons simultaneously for three seconds. The lights will flash for 25 seconds during the preheating mode.
  • U – press and hold three buttons simultaneously for three seconds.
  • Latissima – take out the descaling nozzle.

Your machine is now ready!

Note: Be sure to use caution on countertops as this acid formula can have a similar effect as that of lemon juice.

Maintenance tips for producing the perfect Espresso

The quality of your Pressogno coffee depends on the machine used and how it is maintained. Here are some tips:

  • After each use of your machine, it is recommended to run water (without a capsule in the machine) for around 6 seconds in order to avoid the deposit of the coffee ground within the flow system. For automatic machines, just press the "espresso button".
  • To maintain the optimum temperature and quality of your espresso, descale your machine regularly. There is special cleaning equipment that has been especially designed for the Nespresso® machines and its components. It is not recommended to use vinegar, as it may damage your machine.
  • As the quality of water is essential for a good espresso, we also advise that you refill the water tank on a daily basis.
  • Please consult the manual that came with your machine for specific maintenance and troubleshooting tips.
