Many people have to start their morning off with a cup of coffee for that energy boost and early-morning pick-me-up. Often, those who partake in such a morning ritual choose to brew their own coffee at home, as it’s less expensive and quicker than a trip to a coffee shop. If brewing a hot cup of java every morning is a central part of your morning routine, then knowing when and how to clean your coffee maker is crucial to making the best tasting cup of coffee. In this article, we discuss why, when, and how often you should clean your coffee maker – plus tips on how best to clean it.
Wondering why it’s important to clean your coffee maker? Here are some of the top reasons why.

However, if you tend to fill the water reservoir of your coffee maker from a rinsed carafe or if your home has hard water (water with heavy mineral content), the residue may build up more quickly. In such cases, a monthly cleaning is highly recommended.
Some coffee makers have a visible or audible cleaning signal and that usually precedes a forced downtime. You can avoid this downtime by being proactive with your cleaning and maintenance. Other coffee makers have a cleaning cycle set-up, which is usually explained in the manual. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.
