In the nice weather, do you want to enjoy a cup of hot coffee to warm the body or a cup of iced milked coffee made by the iced coffee maker to relax? Being with your friends or family and enjoy the coffee at home in the afternoon will be very attractive, won’t it?
Yet many people used to complain that although they tried to protect the coffee machines, they still break very quickly. This may happen because they do not know the right ways to clean and maintain these machines.
In fact, though there are different types such as Bunn or Keurig coffee maker or many the others, there are the same rules when you use and maintain them. In this post, there are several things you need to pay attention in order to keep your coffee machine well.
The coffee you use to brew
You should only use the pure coffee beans or coffee powder for the coffee makers. If you use the marinated coffee, the mill of the machine will be broken and stop working only after several times of milling. You should also use the silky coffee for the coffee maker to brew so that it can work best.
The water used to brew the coffee
You can use the warm water but not use the tonic water or the boiled to put into the machine’s bottle. It can cause some troubles for you when making the coffee.
Moreover, in many cases, you should check the water in the bottle before you turn on the machine to make sure that it is enough to make the coffee. You must not turn on the machine without water in the bottle because it can make the motor’s fire.
You also should not put the made coffee into the machine again because it can obstruct the machine’s details. As a result, this will be broken very quickly.
Cleaning the machine
For the new coffee makers or the no use for a long time ones, you should let the machine work with the water to clean clearly before using. Or when you need to keep it without using for a long time, you should also do that before you store it.
Maintain the machine after every time of using
After each time of using the machine, you need to clean the stirring milk tap and the throat making the coffee. First, you need to throw the coffee grounds away and use the brush to clean the machine’s throat. Next, after stirring the milk, you need to discharge little steam out so that the milk will not be stuck in the tap. Then, you use the wet towel to wipe the tap and only use it for this tap.
Maintaining the machine every day
It can be applied to the machines which are used in the coffee shops because they brew the coffee many times per day. The most important thing you need to do is cleaning the throat making the coffee. You need to wash it again and again for several times after using the brush to clean the throat. You can also use the cleaning powder for the coffee makers to wash the throat. However, you will have to wash the throat carefully to make sure it is totally clear.
Maintaining the machine every week
Every week, you should remove the filter to clean all the coffee oil in it. Along with this, you should also clean the milling part of the machine because the oil can stick to it. All these things will help to keep your machine clean and protect it well.
Through the rules of cleaning the coffee machine given, you see that keeping the coffee maker well is not too difficult, don’t you? I hope that you will always have a good time with your friends and family while enjoying the sweet coffee made by yourself.
