Question about DeLonghi Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Need to decalcify my machine, I have not done so since I brought it many yrs already. I used filtered water but figure it may need to be cleaned out. Coffee not tasting as it should. Also what's the best number to put on grinner for whole beans? I can't seem to get it right, making it too strong, bitter tasting. Thanks

it could be grind stuck in the (yes the, as in the only) hole in the filter cup. remove the filter cup from the cup holder (the thing with the black handle) and use the tiny pin in the little brown tool to push out whatever is in there. you may have used to fine a grind or stuffed the filter cup too much. careful, that is how you break the plastic filter holder ring.
for calcifying, i just use plain white vinegar. i put it in straight into the clear water holder, about 3/4 cup, then i run it throuhg a bit, let it sit 5 min, run it through a bit, let it sit 30 min to an hour. depending on the day, i repeat a few times, rinse with clean water. i do this about every 2 months.
