Keeping Your Coffee Maker Clean
Tips For Keeping Your Coffee Maker Clean.
There are as many opinions about what a great cup of coffee consists of. Because coffee is consumed in every part of the world and everyone’s taste is different. Every coffee drinker knows exactly what he or she wants in a good cup of coffee. Some like it hot, some like it cold, but very few like it in a pot nine days old ..as the old nursery rhyme goes.
The one thing that all coffee drinkers will agree on is that coffee needs to be made fresh. The only other thing that coffee drinkers will agree on is that the best coffee is made in a clean coffee maker. The pot doesn’t need to be “well-seasoned.” It needs to be well cleaned after every use. This will affect the taste of the coffee served.
There are a great many coffee-pot-cleaning products out there at your local supermarket. Most of them work well, when used as directed. You do not have to buy these products for every clean. It is recommended to use one of these cleaners about every second or third clean. This keeps your coffee maker as clean as it can be. These products do make cleaning your coffee maker easier and will do the task much quicker. Although there are cheaper ways.
One of the cheaper methods for keeping your coffee maker clean, keeping every pot of coffee tasting great, is to use baking soda. Baking soda is cheap. It is one of the least expensive items that you will find on your grocer’s shelves, and yet it does so much. Baking soda neutralizes the acidity left behind in your coffee maker after you have made a pot of coffee.
Only one teaspoon of baking soda is enough to clean the average coffee maker. Simply put a teaspoon full of baking soda into the pot. Let it sit for a few minutes, then thoroughly rinse the pot to remove all traces of the baking soda. This is not recommended for espresso machines.
