Keep it clean (talking about your coffee machine)

Keep it clean (talking about your coffee machine)

Keep your coffee tasting great!

  • Use good quality, fresh roasted beans (check out our selection here - we'll mail them to you whenever you need)
  • clean your coffee maker after every use - just wash out the coffee pot and brew basket with soap and water
  • do a deep clean by running vinegar and water through once in a while. How often should you do a deep clean? At least once a year. Every couple months if you're using it daily. Monthly if you're using it for several pots a day.

Read on for a little more detail on how to deep clean your coffee machine...
