Question about Starbucks Barista Utopia
Hi I have a Barista Utopia from Starbucks and I've had this for about 6 years. This pot is not dishwasher safe nor can I submerge it in water due to the plug at the bottom of the coffee pot. There is a greasy coffee film that has developed over time and I do not know how to clean this off. Do you have any suggestions on how to clean this coffee craft? its opening is very narrow at the top and is too small for you to put your hand through. I have searched for a User Guide online without any luck nor have I found anyone else with this problem.
Just use a dishwasher soap tab to clean carafes. Let it (and a carafe full of water) sit overnight. Be sure to rinse more than you think necessary or it WILL taste vile!

Patience- this may sound goofy.
In cleaning similarly difficult containers, I found a method that works for me.
Although other cleaners may work, I keep an inexpensive product which is a Simple Green knockoff called Mean Green.
It seems to be the same formula and costs a whole $5 a gallon from a dollar store.
For most cleaning, it can be heavily diluted and works better that way without leaving too much film behind.
Then (because it was there) I used the crushed charcoal purchased for the aquarium, dumped a half-cup of it into (it was a thermos), added a 1/4 cup of concentrated cleaner - and shook.
The charcoal is fairly light and not too abrasive but the shaking randomizes contact with the surface and scrubs it clean.
Uuuhh, rinse THOROUGHLY; it tastes terrible!
BTW, half mixed with water and in a spray bottle, it works great at killing insects and disabling wasp nests.
The stuff is very good at breaking surface tension and really wets anything it touches and, for the enviro fanatics, it degrades in nature.
