Weekly cleaning of L'OR BARISTA & L'OR Sublime
Your L'OR BARISTA needs weekly and monthly maintenance. A weekly quick clean will take you 2-3 minutes. After use, wipe your coffee machine with a soft, clean cloth.
Clean the exterior of the machine with a soft, damp cloth.
Caution: Never use scouring pads, abrasive detergents, or harsh liquids such as gasoline or acetone to clean the machine.
Warning: Do not insert your finger into the capsule compartment to avoid injury. It contains an invisible pointed punch.
Clean the front of the machine with a soft, damp cloth, then clean the two parts of the coffee dispensing nozzle (the coffee nozzle units and the nozzle cover) with lukewarm water or in the dishwasher.
Clean the water tank by rinsing it under lukewarm running water. The water tank is not dishwasher safe. Rinse the water tank and refill it with fresh water every 24 hours.
Monthly cleaning: how to clean the internal circuit of the L'OR BARISTA machine?
Clean the interior every month to remove any coffee residue and ensure you get the best quality and best-tasting coffee. Unplug your machine, remove all loose parts, then wash and rinse them. To start the internal cleaning cycle, please follow the instructions below:
Place a cup under the coffee nozzle.
Lift the lever to allow the last used capsule to fall into the used capsule drawer.
Do not insert a new capsule, close the lever, and press the lungo button.
Empty the cup once the water has finished flowing.
Lift the lever and repeat steps 3 and 4 to ensure correct cleaning of the coffee circuit.
How often should I clean my coffee machine?
We recommend that you clean your coffee machine with lukewarm water and a soft cloth every week. Be sure to clean the internal circuit once a month. We recommend that you clean your milk frother after each use, and descale your L'OR BARISTA when the ristretto and lungo buttons start blinking after brewing a coffee. Descaling your coffee machine  ensures perfect coffee taste, temperature, and volume.
L'OR BARISTA cleaning and descaling instructions
You should descale your L'OR BARISTA machine about 4 times a year, depending on the frequency of use. If, after brewing your coffee, the ristretto and lungo buttons start blinking, it means that you need to descale your machine. Descaling your coffee machine ensures perfect coffee taste, temperature, and volume. Watch the L'OR descaling video to learn how to start the descaling cycle.
