If you are a coffee lover and have a home coffee machine, you know how important it is to keep it clean to ensure the best possible coffee experience. Regular cleaning of your home coffee machine not only ensures that your coffee tastes great but also helps prolong the machine’s life. In this article, we have highlighted the key areas to focus on when cleaning.
Clean the water tank regularly
The water tank is an essential part of your home coffee machine and needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to keep it running smoothly. You can clean the water tank by rinsing it with warm, soapy water and then rinsing it thoroughly with clean water. Alternatively, you can use a mixture of equal water and vinegar to clean the water tank.
Use a decalcifier
Over time, calcium and mineral deposits, known as limescale, can build up inside your home coffee machine, affecting the taste of your coffee and reducing the machine's efficiency. To remove these deposits, you can use a decalcifier that is specifically designed for coffee machines. Simply follow the instructions on the package and run the decalcification cycle as recommended. We recommend checking your user manual to check that this process is suitable for your appliance.
Clean the brew head and filter
The brew head and filter are the parts of your home filter coffee machine that come into contact with the coffee, so they need to be cleaned thoroughly. To clean these parts, remove the filter and wash it with warm, soapy water, making sure to remove any leftover coffee grounds. Use a small brush to clean the brew head, making sure to remove any residue or build-up. Once this has been removed, it can be refitted back onto the machine.
Use a cleaning tablet
Cleaning tablets are an effective and easy way to clean your home coffee machine. Simply follow the instructions on the package and run the cleaning cycle as recommended. Cleaning tablets can help to remove any build-up or residue from the machine, leaving it clean and ready to make great coffee.
Filter and maintenance
You may need to replace the filter or other small parts as part of your general maintenance to keep the appliance clean. This is because some parts, like filters, are consumer replaceable so may deteriorate over time. We recommend contacting the support team for your product directly, or referring to your user manual, for information regarding replacement parts and spares.
Wipe the exterior
Finally, don't forget to wipe down the exterior of your home coffee machine. Use a damp cloth to wipe away any spills or stains, and make sure to dry the machine thoroughly afterwards.
In conclusion, regular cleaning of your home coffee machine is essential to ensure the best possible coffee experience. By following our tips, you can keep your home coffee machine clean and running smoothly.
