How do I de-scale my Keurig machine?

We generally recommend de-scaling your brewer every 3 months. Customers with a higher mineral content may consider de-scaling more frequently. When brewers are not de-scaled, a build-up of scale may accumulate inside, causing the brewer to malfunction.

 

We do not recommend using well water, distilled, or softened water. Good quality drinking water is necessary for a great tasting beverage.
