    Cleaning the LatteGo

    LatteGo, the fastest to clean milk system ever*
    This instruction only applies to machines that have a LatteGo milk system.

     

    2 Part, no-tubes milk system
    Our 2 part milk system has no tubes or hidden parts and can be cleaned in as little as 15 seconds under tap*.
     

    Dishwasher safe
    For your convenience, you can clean LatteGo in the dishwasher. This will save time and ensure a hygienic cleaning.
     

    Storage Lid
    For easy and convenient storage in the fridge or outside you can use the dedicated storage lid for LatteGo.

    Cleaning procedure:
    After every use
    Disassemble the two parts of LatteGo and clean both parts in the dishwasher or under the tap with luke-warm water. You can also use some washing-up liquid.

    Quick Clean function:
    If you want to store LatteGo with milk in the fridge, you can perform a QUICK CLEAN. Not all machines are equipped with this function. You can select Quick Clean via the Menu button. This function forces hot water through the milk system to quickly clean it.

    Lubricate the machine's brew group frequently so its mechanical parts continue to move easily. Use the HD5061 brew group grease.

    Frequency of lubricating:

    • Brewing 1-5 cups per day, lubricate every 4 months.
    • Brewing 6-10 cups per day, lubricate every 2 months.
    • Brewing more than 10 cups per day, lubricate once a month.
