How to Clean a Coffee Maker
Running hard water through your coffee equipment can lead to mineral buildup and calcification on your heating elements. If you’re looking to get the most out of your commercial coffee maker, then it’s important to make sure it’s properly cleaned. Cleaning your coffee maker will not only prolong its life span, but it will also improve the taste of your coffee. You should be cleaning and deliming your machine at least once every six months, however if the water you use is extremely hard, you may need to clean it every month. Follow our video and step-by-step instructions to get your coffee maker back in top shape, and don't forget to set up a water filtration system for your coffee equipment to cut down on mineral buildup in the future.
Unplug the coffee maker.
Wipe down the machine with a damp towel.
Mix 10 oz. of lemon juice with 32 oz. of water.
Pour the mixture into the water reservoir.
Turn your coffee machine on as if you are brewing a pot of coffee.
Once your coffee machine has finished its brewing cycle, remove the machine's spray head.
Remove any residue that may be blocking the holes on the spray head.
Insert a deliming spring into the opening where the spray head was. In a sawing motion, move the deliming spring back and forth about 5-6 times.
Wash the coffee filter with warm, soapy water.
