With a water softener, you will never have to descale your household equipment. Descaling your Senseo is necessary to protect the device against limescale, to maintain the lovely taste of your coffee and to make sure your coffee machine will last longer. We would like to explain how to remove the limescale in your Senseo. But did you know there is a much easier way? With a water softener, you will never have to descale your household devices.
Descale your Senseo in 4 steps
In only 4 steps, you descale your Senseo machine.
Step 1: cleaning vinegar or descaling agent
There are different agents you can use to descale your Senseo. Think about a special Senseo descaling agent or cleaning vinegar. Add one of the two to a liter of water and pour half in the water tank of your coffee machine.
Step 2: Senseo flushing
Place a pad holder for a cup of coffee in the Senseo and turn it on. Place an empty tray under the coffee spout to catch the descaling agent. Press the button for two cups of coffee. Repeat this until the water tank is empty. If you still have some descaling mixture, refill the water tank and flush the Senseo again.
Step 3: flush again with descaling agent
Empty the collection tray and repeat the flushing process with a pad holder for two cups of coffee.
Step 4: clean with clean water
Empty the collection tray again and flush the water tank with clean water. Fill the tank with water and replace it. Press the button for two cups of coffee to flush the machine with clean water. Repeat this until the water tank is empty. In this way, you remove the remaining residue of the descaling agent.

Your questions about a Senseo answered
When do I need to descale my Senseo?
You can make around 400 cups of coffee before you have to descale your Senseo. You do not have to keep track of this of course, your Senseo coffee machine will tell you when it has to be decalcified. The descaling light will light up.
Why do I need to descale my Senseo machine?
Tap water contains small limescale particles, which affect the heating element of your coffee machine. This means your Senseo must work increasingly hard to heat water and so it will break down sooner. To prevent this, you have to descale the coffee machine regularly. The risk of disruptions is lower and your coffee tastes better.
How do I prevent limescale in my coffee machine?
There is only one way to prevent limescale: a water softener. The Amfa4000® descales the piping and other equipment in your home so you do not have to descale your coffee machine manually.
