August 27, 2004, Newsletter Issue #16: How to Clean Your Coffee Maker

Tip of the Week


Cleaning the jug or carafe is easy enough. But what about all those hidden parts in your coffee maker? Over time, oils or residue from hard water can build up. When that happens, the performance of your coffee maker is reduced and the taste of your coffee can be spoiled.

Here`s what to do. Make up a mixture of three quarters water and one quarter vinegar. Run it through the coffee maker, as if you were making coffee. Make a fresh mixture and do it again a second time. Then rinse a few times by doing the same with just water.

Do this once a month and you`ll extend the life of your coffee maker and keep your coffee tasting at its best.
