Should I remove the water filter from my espresso machine?

It depends on what kind of filter is in your espresso machine or coffee maker. 

If it is a carbon filter (similar to a Brita filter), then it doesn't need to be removed. 

If it is an ion exchange filter or something similar (found in some espresso machines like the Lelit Bianca), then it will need to be removed.
