Small pic coffee machine 2

Waking up to a hot cup of coffee from a personal single-serve coffee maker is a modern luxury many enjoy! In order to maintain coffee quality day after day, it is important to regularly descale a coffee maker. Descaling is NOT the same as cleaning a coffee maker. Rather, descaling removes the build up of minerals inside the machine that accumulate over time as water passes through the heating elements of the machine.

As the makers of coffee machines, we want to offer our customers a coffee machine accessory/consumable that will improve the way they descale their machines. Please watch the descaling video below to better understand our current process, which is based on pouring citric acid into the reservoir, before submitting YOUR creative idea!
