Why Use a Water Filter in Your Espresso Machine
The primary reason to use a water filter is to reduce the limescale and other mineral build up in your machine.
Limescale is the number one culprit that creates blockages, reduces the temperature of your coffee and steam and ultimately compromises the taste of your coffee.
Many Saeco models allow you to set the water hardness level into your menu so the descaling message appears with the correct frequency. Check the User's Manual for instructions. Remember you can access User Manuals under the resources tab for each model on our website.
- For machines without the option to set the water hardness level
