We’re pretty enthusiastic about coffee, especially about making good coffee. The first step to a good cup of java is a “well-oiled” coffee machine.
When you make multiple cups a day, you can really take a toll on your coffee maker.
So we advise a monthly cleaning. You’ll be really surprised to see what a nice cleaning will wash away and how much better your coffee will taste.
What you’ll need: water, vinegar and the shear ambition to make the best cup of coffee.
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee pot. You want to fill it at least half way full with the vinegar and then fill it the rest of the way with cold water.
Step 2: Remove the filter basket, rinse it and wipe it out with a paper towel. Then put a filter in the basket and place it back in the coffee maker.
Step 3: Run the coffee maker as usual, then turn it off and let it sit for about ten minutes.
Step 4: Empty the used vinegar and then repeat the cleaning process one more time with a new filter, fresh vinegar and cold water.
Step 5: After letting it sit for another ten minutes, fill the coffee maker with plain water and run it again.
Repeat the cycle with cold water until vinegar taste/smell is gone.
After your coffee pot has been successfully cleaned. Make yourself a cup of joe. We guarantee it will taste GREAT!
