Did Your Coffee Maker Just Stop Working?
A hot cup of coffee in the morning is the best way to get your day off to a great start. Make your morning cup as delicious as possible by not having a weak and bitter coffee. For that, it is essential to make coffee in a clean coffee maker.
A coffee maker may look clean from the outside, but according to a study completed in 2011 by NSF International coffee, reservoirs are among the top ten germiest places in your home. Also, 50% of homes identified in this study were found to have coffee reservoirs with mold and yeast.
To ensure that your next coffee cup is free from yeast and mold, you need to pay attention to its cleaning. The result will be a better-tasting cup of coffee and a better-performing coffee maker.

What Happens if You Don’t Descale the Coffee Machine?
Remember, mineral buildups can have a negative impact on the coffee machine’s boiler, which affects your coffee in many ways.
If the water cannot reach its optimal brewing temperature, it is not possible to extract the full flavor from the coffee beans you added.
Mineral scale buildup can clog the water flow in the machine, and if not removed, it can cause a machine to stop working.
Your coffee won’t be as hot enough as you like it.
So if it has been a long time since you last descaled the coffee maker or even you have never done it, then you might be drinking coffee that is more minor in flavor and more tepid.
Your coffee maker can have mineral deposits from water and coffee residue, and it affects both the flavor of your coffee and the machine’s performance. Also, you can experience the clog as well. The best way to unclog the machine is to descale your coffee reservoir by using water and vinegar solution.
It is also suggested to clean the coffee maker daily. However, descaling should be done after 20-30 brew cycles to avoid having clogs.
