When water is heated, limescale is deposited. Pipes narrowed by limescale not only slow down the heating process and therefore consume more energy, but may even cause the machine to break down completely. Limescale also has a negative effect on the coffee itself. Although a small amount of calcium carbonate is important to the flavour of coffee, too much gives the water an unpleasant aftertaste and prevents the coffee aromas from developing as they should, partly due to fluctuating water temperatures.
How to use:
- In a separate container, dissolve the content of one blister pack (3 tablets) in 0.5l of water. Note: Use lukewarm water (max. 40 °C) to ensure it dissolves rapidly.
- On your Jura machine, start the descaling program by selecting/clicking it on the screen.
- Pour the mixture into the empty water tank at the time specified by the machine descaling program.
- The rest of the procedure will be described by your Jura machine.
