WAYS TO CLEAN AN ESPRESSO MACHINE
For the best tasting espresso, an espresso machine that’s used often should be wiped down daily and the portafilter and basket should be rinsed out with every use. In addition, a deeper clean, which involves washing the individual parts, should take place weekly to help keep the machine and its parts free of residue and impurities.
Descaling your espresso machine, either with vinegar or a descaling solution, at least once a year, is also key to maintaining your appliance and ensuring delicious results.
The items you’ll need to keep your espresso maker clean are simple and straightforward. In addition to the vinegar or specialized solution you’ll need for descaling, a daily or deep cleaning requires only a soft, clean towel and a little soap and water to get the job done.
