Descaling: Method
  1. In a bowl, dissolve 1x sachet of Cafetto Renew into 1L of warm water. It is important that the water is warm, not hot.
  2. Stir the solution to ensure the Renew has completely dissolved.
  3. Pour the solution into the water reservoir of your Moccamaster machine.
  4. Run a brew cycle of the machine. To do this, open the filter basket's flow rate by using the switch on the side of the brew basket (filled circle). Then, turn your Moccamaster on. The solution from the reservoir should begin flowing through the machine.
  5. Discard the solution.
  6. Fill the water reservoir with cold water and run another brew cycle of the machine. Discard the water.
  7. Run one final brew cycle and discard the water.
