Making your coffee at home is a great way to save money, but each cup of java you brew leaves a little bit of residue on your machine. Once a month, clean you machine to remove old coffee grounds, oils and hard water deposits that are ruining the taste of your coffee!
Empty your coffee pot. Dump out any leftover coffee from the pot and empty the filter of used grounds.
Add vinegar and water. Fill the coffee pot with one part white vinegar and two parts cold water. Pour the mixture into the coffee maker’s reservoir.
Turn on the coffee maker to brew a pot. Once the brewing cycle is complete, shut off the machine and allow the vinegar solution to sit for 15 minutes.
Brew a water-only pot for two cycles. This will get rid of any remaining vinegar taste. Turn off the coffee maker for 15 minutes between each brewing cycle.
Change the water filter (optional). If your coffee maker has a water filter, be sure the water filter is changed once every 60 uses (or every 2-3 months).
