Even if your coffee doesn’t taste particularly bad, you may be surprised at the difference in taste after you’ve cleaned your machine! Over time, minerals and other internal residue can gradually contaminate the taste of your brews.

Additionally, this buildup can create clogs and premature wear on the pumps and other parts of the machine. So keeping your machine clean can help extend its lifespan and save you money over time!

Yes! ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler works with all types of espresso and coffee machines from single-serve to multi-cup makers.

It’s compatible with all major brands of machines including Keurig, Nespresso, Mr. Coffee, Tassimo, Breville, and more.

For the average coffee drinker, we recommend descaling the machine twice per month. Commercial brewers or other heavily-used machines may require more frequent cleanings.

The instructions slightly vary between single-serve and multi-cup machines.

For single-serve machines (like a Keurig):

  1. Add 4oz of descaler liquid to the water reservoir, then fill to the max line with water. Run two brewing cycles on the large cup size and dispose of the dirty water.
  2. Dispose any remaining liquid from the water reservoir and refill it with clean water. Run two more brew cycles on the large cup and dispose of the dirty water.
  3. Refill the water reservoir again. Your machine is now clean and ready to brew coffee.

For multi-cup machines (traditional coffee makers with a pot):

  1. Add 4oz of ACTIVE descaler in the water reservoir and fill with water to reach the maximum fill line. Run one large brew cycle into the pot and dispose of the dirty water.
  2. Refill the water reservoir to the max fill line and run one more large brewing cycle into the pot. Dispose of the dirty water from the pot.
  3. Fill the water reservoir with more clean water. Your machine is clean and ready to brew fresh-tasting coffee.

Each 32oz bottle of our coffee machine descaler contains enough concentrated liquid for 8 cleaning sessions.

We recommend descaling your coffee machine twice per month so a single bottle will last you up to 4 months of cleanings.

ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler Usage Guide

Cleaning Your Espresso or Coffee Machine With ACTIVE

If you’ve ever used your coffee maker expecting to savor that first sip of morning bliss, only to be met with a terrible bitter taste – your coffee machine may be overdue for a descaling.

active coffee machine descaler cleaner easyEven the trustiest coffee machines can let us down when we least expect it. And it’s usually the result of neglecting one vital task: cleaning regularly with a high quality coffee machine descaler.

We’ll explain in more detail why regular cleaning and descaling is crucial for every coffee connoisseur and how ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler is a simple and effective solution to keep those bitter surprises at bay.

The Necessity of Regular Cleaning for Coffee and Espresso Machines

Cleaning your coffee maker isn’t just about aesthetics – it directly impacts the taste, safety, and longevity of your appliance.

Coffee makers can be a breeding ground for germs if neglected. According to an NSF study on household germs, coffee machines rank as the fifth germiest place in homes. Furthermore, half of tested reservoirs contained yeast and mold which can lead to allergic reactions or infections.

Impact of Regular Descaling on Coffee Taste

Besides health concerns, regular descaling of your espresso or coffee maker also helps prevent bitter-tasting coffee. Over time, mineral build up from hard water residue along with oily sludge left by coffee beans accumulate inside our machines affecting brew cycle efficiency.

This unwanted grime is notorious for causing changes in flavor too—turning what should have been a heavenly cup into something less appealing.

Maintaining Coffee Maker Performance & Improving Longevity

These hard water mineral deposits can lead to full blockages and clogs if regular descaling is neglected.

While some of these issues can be tolerated as mere annoyances, a dirty coffee maker can become a much more costly problem if left unchecked. The grime buildup puts excess strain on the internal moving parts like the pump. Over time this can cause premature wear and damage that requires repair or worse – replace of the entire espresso or coffee maker.

Maintaining cleanliness is crucial when you want that perfect pour every single morning from your favorite single cup or drip machine.

How to Clean and Descale a Coffee Machine with ACTIVE

ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler Solution is an easy to use and highly effective cleaner to descale your coffee maker. The instructions can vary depending on the type and style of coffee or espresso maker but generally follow a similar process. Here’s how to use it!

Add Cleaning Solution to the Water Reservoir

To start, measure 4oz of ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler and add it to the water reservoir. Then fill the reservoir with clean water to reach the maximum fill line.

Run a Brewing Cycle

For single cup machines (like a Keurig or Nespresso), run two brewing cycles using the largest cup size setting. Dispose of the dirty water after each cycle. For standard drip coffee makers, run one brewing cycle on the largest setting, then dispose of the dirty water from the coffee pot.

Refill & Run Another Brew Cycle

The next step to descale your coffee maker is to flush it with clean water. The hot water helps to fully rinse out any of the remaining descaling solution and other mineral deposits still lingering inside.

If you’re using a single-serve maker, empty any remaining liquid from the water reservoir, then refill it with clean water. Run two more brew cycles on the large cup size setting, disposing the dirty water after each cycle. Your coffee maker is now ready to use.

For traditional multi-cup coffee makers, refill the water reservoir with clean water and run one more brew on the largest size setting. Dispose of the dirty water from the coffee pot and rise it out before reusing it. You’re all set to start your next brew of coffee.

There are other competitors that offer descaling and cleaning solutions to remove mineral buildup like hard water deposits or limescale in your coffee maker carafe or filter basket over time. However, their process often involves more steps than using ACTIVE, which could be inconvenient for some users.

Coffee & Espresso Machine Maintenance Tips

Here are some practical tips that will make sure your morning cup is as fresh and delicious as possible.

Proper Care for Removable Parts

The first step in maintaining a clean coffee maker is giving proper attention to removable parts like the filter basket and water reservoir. These areas can harbor mineral buildup, so it’s important to remove them and give them a thorough cleaning with warm water, dish soap, or even baking soda regularly.

You can also mix a 1-2oz of ACTIVE Coffee Machine Descaler in a bowl with warm water and use that to clean these parts.

Our descaler is also great for stubborn coffee stains or residue inside the coffee pot. So for a clean carafe, ACTIVE has you covered.

To keep flavors pure and avoid bitter-tasting brews caused by stale oils trapped within coffee pots and filters over time, make sure to replace your coffee maker’s filter according to manufacturer instructions.

External Cleaning of Your Coffee Maker

Maintaining the external parts of your coffee maker is just as critical to its longevity as it is to the aesthetics. Luckily it’s easy to preserve this fresh-out-of-the-box shine using simple things like microfiber cloths.

But don’t worry, a little bit of dish soap mixed with warm water can do wonders here. Gently scrub away any sticky residues or smudges until everything sparkles again.

To help prevent these stains from setting in, wipe down external surfaces right away after each use. This way those spots won’t have time to turn into tough stains.

Consistency is key when it comes to maintaining both inside & outside of your coffee maker. By regularly adhering to these measures, you can keep your coffee machine in good condition and running efficiently for a long time.
