De’Longhi Clessidra Frequently asked questions

Why does the coffee take a long time to brew?

The Clessidra uses a slower brewing process to replicate the traditional pour-over method, which enhances the coffee's flavor and aroma. If the brewing time seems excessively long, ensure that the water tank is filled to the correct level and that the machine is not clogged with limescale. Descaling the machine regularly can help maintain optimal brewing time​​​​.

The coffee has an acidic taste. What can I do?

An acidic taste in the coffee often indicates a need to descale the machine. Hard water can cause limescale buildup, affecting the coffee's taste. To descale the machine:

Use De'Longhi descaler and fill the water tank with a solution of 100ml of descaler and fresh water up to the MAX level.

Run the descaling cycle as described in the manual.

After descaling, perform two full brewing cycles with fresh cold water to rinse the machine​​.

How do I clean the De'Longhi Clessidra coffee maker?

Regular cleaning includes:

  • Washing the glass carafe and filter holder.
  • Removing and cleaning the drip tray.
  • Descaling the machine approximately every 60 cycles to prevent limescale build up.
  • Wiping down the exterior with a damp cloth​​​​.

What is the pour-over function?

The pour-over function automates the manual pour-over method, using a pulse pouring technique to ensure even saturation of the coffee grounds. This results in a more intense and aromatic flavour, like what you would get from a manual pour-over setup​​​​.

How do I know when to descale the machine?

The Clessidra coffee maker has a descaling alarm. When descaling is needed, the two buttons on the machine will flash simultaneously. Follow the descaling instructions in the manual to keep the machine in good working order​​​​.

Mastering the De’Longhi Clessidra Filter Coffee Maker opens a world of rich, aromatic coffee experiences.
