Posted Fri Nov 19, 2004, 1:18pm Subject: How often to DESCALE?
I bought the Spidem Trevi Combi Plus about 6 weeks ago based on recommendations of this board (great machine for the money by the way). How often should it be descaled and what product/s should I use? I make 2-3 doubles a day and have gone through approximately 3.5 pounds of whole beans (ground with the built-in burr grinder) to date.
Also, has anyone replaced the pressurized portafilter with a non-pressurized, heavy guage steel or brass one? If so, where did you buy it? How much did it cost? What was the outcome?
Finally, the steam wand is a bit on the short side versus the depth of our milk pitcher, does anyone know of an extension or replacement piece that would make it more user friendly for steaming in 20oz pitchers?
