Your coffee machine, whether a bean-to-cup, espresso or capsule machine will need regular cleaning to ensure every cup of coffee it produces not only tastes as good as the last one, but also has the flavour you’d expect from the finest coffee.
Yet many of us are guilty of neglecting our coffee makers and not providing them with the cleaning they require, so it should come as no surprise that coffee makers are a hot bed for bacteria. In fact, a study from 2011 found the reservoir in a coffee maker is likely to have a higher germ count than some spots in your bathroom.
Cleaning your coffee maker, including a bean-to-cup machine, needn’t be difficult. Below, we provide a guide on how to clean your coffee machine on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
