    Which coffee maker have you got?

    Ps: rising is rising. It’s not descaling. Descaling will put an acidic solution in the boiler to dissolve any limescale. You then need to rinse that solution off the boiler so you can make good coffee again.

    I meant rinsing. Was typing on a mobile phone in a rush.

    Kind of. Just make sure you flush enough water through the group and the steam wand and you’re good to go.

    Taste the rinsed water by sticking a finger in it... If all you can taste is water than all the descaler has been washed out of the system.

    Rinsing the unit is running fresh water through machine & steam wand - 1 or 2 water tank should be enough.
    Just as you do for coffee but without coffee. For steam, open the knob half way or pres tea button depending on your machine.
