Every coffee connoisseur will tell you that cleaning the filter basket, water reservoir, and coffee pot isn’t enough. It may sound a bit snobbish at first, but it’s actually true.
Even if you clean the filter basket, water reservoir, and coffee pot religiously, some contaminants still linger within your machine.
This contaminats will become apparent and will have negative effects on the taste and smell of the coffee that is brewed from the coffee maker and also on the performance and lifespan of the coffee maker.
Cleaning a coffee maker isn’t hard to do at all, especially when there are a number of commercial coffee machine cleaners available in the market today.
Among all of the commercial coffee maker cleaners, Urnex Cleancaf, DIP-IT Coffee Pot Cleaner, and Better Brew Coffee Maker Cleaner are the most popular.
Questions about coffee? Have it answered by the professionals. Examples of some questions:
What are the considerations for an office coffee station?
What are the essential V60 Coffee Brewing tools?
Non coffee (but important to coffee) question: What is whole milk?
Each of these products guarantees that your coffee maker will brew faster, last longer, and brew better tasting coffee.
And it is true. Each of these products is able to remove any coffee residue along with any mineral deposits that have accumulated in your coffee maker.
However, what you’re really paying for when buying one of these products is an acidic solution. The acidic properties helps get rid of lime scale, mineral deposits, and any rancid coffee oils and residue that remain inside your coffee maker.
In simpler terms, what you’re only paying for when buying a commercial coffee maker cleaner is an acidic solution in an attractive package.
Cleaning Your Coffee Maker - Vinegar
Ewww! Why vinegar? Doesn’t it smell bad?
Why not? Sure it smells bad, but vinegar is natural, free of toxins, and is a good solution to use because its acidic properties are able to get rid of lime scale, mineral deposits, and any rancid coffee oils and residue that remain inside your coffee maker.
In other words, it is able to do the same thing that commercial coffee brewers cleaners are designed to do.
Plus, it’s easier to get a hold of vinegar, especially if you decide to clean your coffee maker at an inopportune moment.
OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
