How to Clean Your Mr Coffee Espresso Machine
Keeping your Mr Coffee Espresso Machine clean is the key to a great tasting cup of espresso every time. Follow these simple steps to get the most out of your espresso machine.
Step 1: Rinse Your Portafilter immediately after each use
Rinsing your portafilter immediately after each use is important to keep it clean and in good working order. Use hot water and a soft cloth to remove any spent grounds, or coffee residues from the basket and the edges of the portafilter.
Step 2: Clean the Drip Tray
For best results, your drip tray should be emptied and cleaned daily. If you haven’t used your machine in a while, it’s a good idea to give it a good clean. Use a damp cloth to wipe away any coffee grounds or residues from the tray, and rinse with hot water.
Step 3: Descale your coffee machine
Descaling your coffee machine regularly is one of the most important steps in keeping your machine clean and working properly. Descaling helps to remove any built-up calcium deposits that can affect the flavour of your espresso.
To descale your machine you will need:
- One packet of descaling mixture
- A measuring cup
- Hot water
Mix one packet of descaling mixture with hot water in the measuring cup, and pour the solution into your machine’s reservoir. Let the descaling solution run through the machine for about 10 minutes. Rinse the reservoir with hot water a few times, and then empty the drip tray. You’re now ready for a perfect cup of espresso!
Step 4: Clean the Steam Wand
The steam wand should be cleaned every two or three days to keep it free from any milk deposits or residue. To clean, insert a damp cloth into the open end of the steam wand and turn the steam wand to the highest setting for about five seconds. This will blast out any residue inside. Rinse the cloth and repeat one more time.
Step 5: Clean Your Grounds Container
Your espresso grounds container should be emptied, rinsed and dried after each use. This will help keep it clean and help maintain a good taste.
Keeping your Mr Coffee Espresso Machine clean is the key to a great tasting cup of espresso every time. Following these simple steps will help ensure that your espresso experience is always perfect.
