Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Every month or so, run a complete brewing cycle using white vinegar in place of water. Follow with 2 complete cycles using plain water.
Water quality in many places is not so good. The heat of the brewing process causes the solids (calcium, lime, &tc) in the water (especially HARD water) causes scale to form on the inside of the tubing. This not only affects the taste of the coffee (or even tea), but slows the brewing time by preventing water flow due to decreased diameter of the tubing.
