Drip and single serve

For a coffee lover, coffee makers are a favorite and easiest appliance to get a perfect cup of Joe. That aroma of fresh coffee in the morning becomes the daily tradition. When you use your coffee maker on a regular basis, it doesn’t take long for it to slow down a bit and make the coffee tastes a little bitterer.

After a time and regular usage, soon the machine will unveil the gathering of hard water deposits inside the machine. The carafe and exterior may look spotty as well. But with a proper cleaning and just one ingredient, the coffee maker can be brought back to its original grace. The Drip Coffee Maker is one of the best coffee makers with grinder available in the market.

How to clean a drip coffee maker

  1. Clean the carafe, basket holder and reusable filter (if you have). Since all the grounds need to be cleaned, you don’t have to wash it thoroughly with soap and water. A good drench will work until later.
  2. Add plain white distilled vinegar to your carafe and fill it halfway and the remaining part with water.
  3. Spill the water and vinegar mixture to the water reservoir and start brewing. Halfway through, turn off the coffee maker and keep it for 45 minutes. Why we do this so that the vinegar sit in the inner workings of the coffee maker and you can easily remove those hard water deposits that can slow down your machine.
  4. After the time up, complete your brewing cycle. Can you see that messy substance and remains in the carafe? That’s what has been sitting inside the coffee maker that makes it slow and brew up a bitter cup of coffee.
  5. Pour that solution and fill it with fresh and clean water. Clean the machine a minimum of three times. Clean it until the water is clear and a smell of vinegar is fully gone.
  6. Take a damp microfiber cloth with a drop of soap to clean the exterior of the coffee maker. If there are any hard water deposits on the outside, use a small amount of white vinegar on a cloth to clean it. Clean the carafe and the filter basket with hot and soapy water. Allow it to dry
