How often do I have to service my Olympia Express Espresso Machine?

Depending on the hardness of your water, we suggest descaling your espresso machine 1-2 times per year. It is important that you only use a commercially available liquid decalcifying solution (e.g. Durgol). Please do not use vinegar or powder.

For very hard water, we suggest using a table water filter. This removes the carbonate hardness (lime) and therefore the espresso can develop its full flavour.

You can obtain instructions on how to descale your Cremina or Maximatic here.

If your question hasn’t been answered yet, you can ask us personally.
