The Importance Of Cleaning Your Coffee Machine

If you have a coffee machine and strive to make great tasting fresh espresso with it, then you have taken the first steps in becoming a fully-fledged barista.

Like any other job, deciding to become a barista comes with responsibilities, and cleaning your coffee machine is the biggest one, because your coffee machine can only give you so many coffees without needing some proper cleaning.

Give something back to your beloved coffee machine to ensure it keeps on delivering the coffee you love.

Through this simple act, not only will you be adding years onto the life of your much-loved machine, but you’ll also be guaranteeing cup after cup of great tasting quality coffee.


The benefits of a clean machine

It’s a terrible thing to suffer through bad coffee, so keep an eye out for these 5 signs that your machine clean is overdue.
Make sure you pay attention and pick up if your machine is showing any of these signs:
  1. It seems to be taking longer to extract even though the grind setting, the amount of coffee you’re using and your dose appears correct.
  2. Your cups of coffee are starting to taste inexplicably dirty and/or burnt.
  3. You’re not enjoying your coffee as much as you used to.
  4. The machine or milk steamer is making unusual noises and not performing consistently.
  5. People simply aren’t complimenting you on your coffee any more.
Ultimately, cleaning your machine will save power and help you avoid costly repairs or a full replacement of your coffee machine.
By doing a little bit of daily upkeep and a regular deep clean, you can prevent the build-up of back pressure on your pump and make the coffee machine work far more effectively.
