Did you know you’re supposed to clean your coffee maker?! Or am I the only who’s been living under a rock? LOL 🙂
Pot after pot of brewed coffee really takes a toll on those things! From hard water deposits, to lingering coffee oils going rancid overtime, it’s a good idea to give your coffee maker a good cleaning about once a month to purge it off all those impurities.
And as an extra bonus, your coffee will taste Ahh-mazing! Seriously, those first few pots of coffee after cleaning the machine taste so fresh and so clean!
So here’s what you do…
Fill up the carafe with 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar (or if this is your first time, do 1 part water to 1 part vinegar). Pour it into the machine, and run a regular cycle.
When it’s finished, let the pot cool down for about 15 minutes. Then discard the liquid and rinse the pot. I like to leave a little in the bottom of the pot and swirl it around with a scrub brush to clean the carafe.
Fill it up again with just water, and run 1-2 more cycles to help rinse out any leftover vinegar from the machine.
That’s it! You’re now on your way to a cleaner machine, and much tastier coffee! 🙂
