Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:

Hello,

Thank you for the question.  We will first start off with the Expobar.  First, you will want to backflush the machine every 10-14 days.  This is achieved by using a backflush dic(Basket with no holes in it) and a cleaner such as Cafiza.  This will clean the group head and remove coffee build up so that it is not transmitted to the your finished product.  I would high suggest using the water softner with this machine to keep the water as soft as possible.  This will keep the machine from building scale up in it.  As this machine can be descaled but it can be quite tricky to do.  Moving onto the Rocky grinder.  I am a firm believer is disassembling the burr area and cleaning the threads and grinding area to keep from oils and coffee from building up and causing more stress on the motor.  This will prolong the machine lifespan by doing so.  I suggest ever 3 to 6 months for this.  I have such a large span on time for this due to the use of a light roast to a dark roast and the amount of usage.  Shane

Jose asked:

Would I also need a descale product for my Rancilio Silivia or would these tablets suffice?

Answer by Maggie:

Those are actually for machines with a brew unit cleaning cycle-your best bet would be something like the Urnex Cleancaf or Durgol Swiss Espresso Cleaner to descale your machine.

Stefano asked:

What's the difference between this product and a descaler product?
Can I use this on the semi-automatic Gaggia Evolution?
If yes how it works?

Answer by techkathy:

Cleaning tablets are meant to clean out any coffee residue in the machine. Descaling clears out any mineral build up in the boiler and other internals of the unit.

Answer by Stefano:

Thanks,
Can this product be used on the gaggia evolution? how do I use it?

Answer by Maggie:

The Evolution is a semi-automatic machine, and so these would not be necessary to use with your machine, as it does not have a brew unit. The best thing to use to clean your machine is Gaggia Decalcifier or Durgol Swiss Espresso Cleaner.

Should you be cleaning your coffee machine with vinegar?

Vinegar is an incredibly versatile product and has become a household staple as it is cheap, widely available, and can be used for just about anything. One misconception about vinegar is that it is a good way to clean and descale coffee machines. While it may sound self-serving, here’s why it is a bad idea to use vinegar: 1. The vinegar leaves a strong odor (as everyone knows) that can co-mingle with coffee oil, turning your fresh brew into a “fresh ew.” 2. It does not clean! While vinegar might be able to gently break down some hard water deposits, it does not effectively clean your coffee machine or remove oils. 3. It takes forever to rinse: our tests show that vinegar takes 3.5 times longer to rinse out of a drip brewer or capsule machine than does Dezcal,Full Circle Descaler, or other Urnex Brands, Inc. products. There you have it: vinegar is great for almost anything. Rather than waste water trying to rinse out your semi-cleaned and now-smelly coffee machine, use a professionally formulated coffee machine cleaner or descaler. And to prove that we at Urnex do not hate vinegar, here are a few of our favorite places to use vinegar (just some of the 1,001 ways to use vinegar): 1. Wacky cake—quick rise cake made without yeast, eggs, butter, or milk 2. Easter eggs—vinegar is an important component for coloring! 3. Window cleaner—simply combine vinegar, water, and some elbow grease! 4. Salad dressing—it’s as easy as olive oil and vinegar! 5. Pickling—come on, who doesn’t love pickles?
