Eccelezza Touch Maintenance and Cleaning

The maintenance and cleaning routines for the Eccelezza Touch and Momentum espresso machines are essential to ensure optimal performance, longevity, and hygiene. Here are the recommended steps:

Daily Cleaning and Maintenance:

  1. Group Heads and Portafilters:
    • After each use, remove the portafilters and thoroughly rinse them with hot water to remove coffee grounds.
    • Wipe down the group heads with a clean, damp cloth to remove any coffee residues.
    • Ensure the group heads are dry before reattaching the portafilters.
  2. Steam Wands:
    • Immediately after use, purge the steam wands to clear any milk residues.
    • Wipe the steam wands with a damp cloth to remove any milk residues or splashes.
    • Ensure the steam wand tips are clear and free from milk buildup.
  3. Drip Trays and Grate:
    • Empty and clean the drip tray regularly to prevent overflow and buildup of coffee residues.
    • Remove the drip tray grate and clean it thoroughly to prevent clogging.

Weekly Maintenance:

  1. Backflushing:
    • Perform a backflushing procedure using a blind filter and a designated espresso machine cleaning detergent.
    • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the specific detergent and procedure recommended for your machine.
  2. Cleaning Filters and Screens:
    • Remove and clean the group head filters and screens weekly to prevent clogging and ensure proper water flow.

Monthly Maintenance:

  1. Descaling:
    • Depending on the hardness of your water and usage frequency, descale the machine regularly.
    • Use a descaling agent specifically recommended for espresso machines to remove mineral deposits from the boiler and internal components.

General Tips:

  • Water Quality: Use filtered water to minimize mineral buildup and improve the taste of espresso.
  • Maintenance Log: Keep a log of cleaning and maintenance tasks performed, including dates and details, to ensure consistency and warranty compliance.

Additional Notes:
