How to descale my Philips Baristina Espresso Machine

When the Espresso & Lungo light blinks three times after making coffee with your Philips Baristina Espresso Machine it is time for descaling. Regular descaling ensures the best coffee temperature & flavor. Follow the steps and video below, on how to descale at home.

Descaling Philips Baristina Espresso Machine

Important note:

  • Do not interrupt the descaling process once it has started. Please, keep in mind that this process can take up to 30 minutes.
  • When descaling your Philips Espresso Machine, you should use Philips Descaler only (Descaling solution CA6700).

Descaling Cycle:

  1. To begin the descaling process, remove the drip tray and place a container that can hold at least 1.2 liters of liquid under the coffee spout.
  2. Next, pour half a bottle (125ml) of Philips' Descaler into the water tank.
  3. Before proceeding, ensure that there is no leftover coffee puck in the portafilter.
  4. After that, press and hold the Espresso and Lungo buttons together for five seconds until the Espresso button starts blinking slowly and the Lungo button remains continuously on.
  5. The machine will then dispense the entire descaling solution at regular intervals, which may take up to 30 minutes.

Once the Lungo button starts blinking quickly and the Espresso button is continuously on, the first phase of the descaling cycle is complete. Take out the container, empty it, and place it back under the portafilter dispensing spout.

Rinsing Cycle:

  1. To initiate the rinsing cycle, first remove the water tank and wash it thoroughly under the tap.
  2. Next, refill the tank with cold tap water and reattach it to the machine.
  3. To start the flushing cycle, press the blinking Lungo button. During the flushing cycle, the Lungo button will blink slowly while the Espresso button remains on continuously. Once the flushing cycle is complete, the lights in the buttons will turn off, indicating that the descaling procedure has been completed.

After the descaling procedure has been completed rinse the watertank and portafilter.
