How To Clean A Capresso Coffee Maker
Cleaning a Capresso coffee maker may seem pretty exhausting but the good part of it is that you aren’t going to be cleaning so often well, depending on the usage. To clean a Capresso burr grinder, you’ll need to go through a few procedures which will be discussed below.
Remove the coffee grinder plug from the socket. The first thing you are expected to do is unplug the coffee grinder from the socket. It is not advisable to clean a machine that is connected to a socket and the socket is on. This can lead to serious damage that can lead to some health challenges or even death. So plug in the coffee grinder before proceeding to the next procedure.
The second method is to completely separate the coffee grinder machine. There is no way anyone can clean the machine first, disassemble the parts so that they can be easily washed or cleaned. Therefore, it is necessary to disconnect the machine, such as plugging the coffee grinder from the socket. This is where the screwdriver comes into play.
Well, as we all know, every coffee mill works differently. I would suggest that before separating, you should go through the manual that is attached to the packaging box that usually comes with the coffee grinder. For this type of coffee grinder, there are two things you need to separate from the machine: the upper grinding case and the hopper.
You may be wondering why you should take them out. Well, aside from being part of detaching the machine, taking off the upper grinding case and the hopper is done so as to be able to clean the inside of them and to remove some coffee dust and perhaps other tiny particles that could be found inside.
The third procedure would be to clean, scrub, and wash. Get the grinder and turn it in a way that it faces down. Hit it by smacking the grinding machine a little bit with your hands, so that all the particles and remaining coffee beans would fall out. After shaking them off, you’ll be needing a brush (such as this Coffee Grinder Cleaning Brush) to finish off with the remaining particles that are stuck inside of the grinder. Get your brush and hold it firmly while using your other hand to hold the coffee grinder machine in place so it doesn’t roll off.
Now, start cleaning up the remaining particles inside the coffee maker. Please make sure the brush is soft. Using a strong brush with strong bristles on it can cause some minor damage. However, brushing the coffee machine is not the only thing you are going to do with this procedure. After brushing, get your cotton ball or broom to wipe the feeder channel. Keep cleaning until the feeder channel is completely free of dust or particles. You can brush or dust teeth, screws, or any other part of the machine that requires proper cleaning.
In addition, you can remove the top and bottom pits and clean any particles or dust there. This aspect is limited to a few people. Why? Because coffee grinders can be found in different models. There are some things that are different from what we are describing here. So if you disagree, please go through the manual mentioned at the beginning to help you clean up.
For this procedure, you’ll be cleaning or washing the plastic parts of the coffee machine. This is done both ways. Either you clean the plastic with the soft brush and run water on them, or you get a sponge to sponge the plastic a little and not aggressively. Please don’t run water on the metal pieces. They’re usually cleaned with a brush or a cotton ball or a swab. Anything other than that shouldn’t be allowed. Using water can lead to spoilage or some sort of electrical problem which can be disastrous to your health and even to your home.
The fifth procedure requires setting up. After all the cleaning process has been carried out, you can then reassemble the coffee machine back to how it is. The plastic parts that were being washed should be completely dried before reassembling them back together to the machine.
This is the last procedure we’ll be talking about to finalize the cleaning and washing of the coffee machine. This procedure must be carried out after you’ve done procedures 1 to 4 extensively. For this last procedure, you’ll be needing coffee beans to use it. A little number of coffee beans would do. Get the beans into the coffee machine to grind which in a way, you’re seasoning the grinder so you can continue making coffee with it.
Also, by doing this, we’re ensuring that all the part has been put right in the place where they belong and the grinder is working perfectly well. However, if you noticed the coffee didn’t grind or come out the way you expected it to, then look closely at it to know what the problem is. If perhaps you didn’t assemble the parts correctly, then you can go over it again. The bottom line is getting it ready just as it was.
