Hello,

I will be traveling for 1 month and so my lovely Linea Micra will be offline during that time.
Any recommendation to prepare the machine for this period?

What I will do:
* Machine will be clean
* Tray will clean and dry
* water reservoir will be cleaned and dried
* machine will be set to off

My concern is the water in the boiler. is it ok to to keep it in the machine for so long?

PS: I use Rocket Pad M to remove scale for my water

Thank you in advance

You'll be OK. Just do a few flushes before using.
I don't think there's anything to worry about.

Have a great vacation - and try plenty of espressos!

If there were a chance of freezing (such as a power outage while you're gone), I'd say drain the boiler, but seems unlikely.
