right now, I have mine set at 199, but when I change beans I play with the temp until I like the result.
I bought my Silvano from Chris's Coffee, who are very clear that you should not descale the machine. So I don't. I just back flush. I've only had the machine a few weeks now, but I imagine at some point I'll need to clean it with a detergent.
i actually talked to chris coffee and they said (after prodding) that it is ok to descale and to use cictric acid. because it is safe to consume. when i mentioned Durgol he said it was not good because it is unsafe to consume. I wonder then why Durgol is OK for other machenes. i would obviously flush the system for several resevoirs.
Has anyone here had this machine longer than 2 years? ( enough time to need a descale )
