Do you ever clean your coffee maker? You should because it will make your coffee taster fresher. Here are three easy steps to better tasting coffee – but first disconnect your coffee maker from the power outlet.
- Wipe out the space where you place the pods with a damp cloth or paper towel. Watch out for the sharp point that pierces the pod. A brush or sponge will help get in the small spaces.
- Descale your machine to remove the magnesium and calcium that can build up. Use a 50:50 mix of water and vinegar in the reservoir and run it through the coffee maker without a coffee pod. Don’t forget to put a mug in place to catch the mixture. Run this water/vinegar mix two or three times the same way you make a cup of coffee (without the coffee pod). Then rinse the reservoir with clean water. Fill it with clean water and run two or three cycles through the coffee maker to remove the vinegar.
- Wipe down the maker with a damp cloth.
That’s all there is to it. This simple process will improve the flavor of your coffee and generally make it cleaner.
