How to clean a braun coffee maker
Every Braun coffee maker needs regular cleaning and descaling. Failure to do so will cause lime and minerals to build up on its parts. Failure to remove it in the right time can ruin your coffee’s taste and reduce the brewer’s life. To avoid trouble and keep your coffee sweet and flavory, it is advisable to clean the unit at least once a month.
Put two tablespoonfuls of white vinegar in four cups of distilled water.
Pour the mix into the brewer’s water reservoir and run a cycle. When the cycle is finished, turn off the brewer and wait for about 30 minutes until it cools down.
Fill the water reservoir with clean and cold water and run three brewing cycles. It is highly advisable to let water cool down between the cycles.
Rinse each of the coffee maker’s parts and, most important, the mesh filter, with warm water mixed with a mild detergent. Rinse each part properly. Clean the heating element at the bottom with a piece of cloth soaked in white vinegar.
Wipe the body with a wet towel.
Do all these steps every month and let your coffee time last a lifetime!
