How to descale your L'OR BARISTA Original & Sublime

To get the most out of your L'OR BARISTA coffee maker, it is important to descale it. This prolongs its life while ensuring the highest quality coffee. When you remove the limescale and clean your coffee machine, you can truly enjoy great-tasting coffee at the right temperature and volume. Descale your L'OR BARISTA coffee machine when the ristretto and lungo buttons (left and right buttons) start blinking after you have brewed a cup of coffee. Find out below how to descale your coffee machine in 10 easy steps.

How to descale your L'OR Barista Sublime coffee machine

To descale your L'OR BARISTA coffee maker, you need Philips L'OR BARISTA CA6530 descaler, water and a bowl with a minimum capacity of 1.5 litres. Descaling your machine can take up to 40 minutes. Follow the instructions below on how to do this:

  1. Simultaneously press and hold both the ristretto and lungo buttons for three seconds. The ristretto button will begin flashing, while the lungo button remains lit.
  2. The coffee machine starts the descaling process and may last up to 30 minutes.
  3. Once descaling is complete, empty the contents of the water bowl and rinse the water tank.
  4. Refill the tank with clean water and replace the now-empty bowl in its original position.
  5. Reattach the water tank to the machine and start rinsing by pressing the blinking lungo button.
  6. The machine will release water until the tank is nearly empty, a process that will last approximately three minutes.

After the descaling process is finished, the coffee machine will shut down on its own. Your L'OR Barista Sublime Coffee Machine is now prepared and ready for your next brew.

Use the official L'OR descaler specially designed for the L'OR BARISTA coffee machine to avoid damaging your machine and to ensure that you’ll have the best tasting coffee. Buy Philips L'OR BARISTA CA6530 descaler for the best results. You can descale your machine twice with just one bottle of descaler. 

Extend the life of your L'OR BARISTA

Descaling cleans every place where water flows through your coffee maker. This helps prevent it from malfunctioning or making any unusual noises when brewing a cup of coffee.

Guarantee the best quality coffee

Taking good care of your L'OR BARISTA coffee machine helps preserve the aromas and flavours of the coffee. Descaling ensures a full cup.

Descaling helps to maintain the optimal coffee temperature

Limestone in your coffee machine can absorb heat, causing the coffee temperature to differ. By descaling it, you ensure the optimal coffee temperature.  


How often should I descale my L'OR BARISTA coffee machine?

The L'OR BARISTA coffee machine must be descaled at least once every three months. Begin the descaling process when the ristretto and lungo button are both blinking.


How long will it take to descale my L'OR BARISTA machine?

In total, the descaling process can take up to 40 minutes.


Which descaler should I use for descaling?

We recommend using the official Philips L'OR BARISTA CA6530 descaler. We cannot guarantee the quality of other products and they may damage your coffee machine.
