    Help - Advice on saving my espresso machine.

    Hi everyone.

    I need some help. A friend stayed at our home recently whilst we were on vacation and somehow managed to do something to our espresso machine. I think (but cant be sure as is he now away) that he put coffee in the water resevoir and then tried to make espresso. The result? Well 2 days of flushing with everything from vinegar, lemon juice and even bleach, has somewhat dimished the really bad nocotine smell (bizarre??) and almost got rid of all the coffee residue and particles that are emitted from the machine. Sadly however, I think its beyond help and will probably need replacing.

    Any advice or recommendations on salvagaing would be greatly appreciated.
