How Often Should I Clean my Machine…?
Keep your machine clean with Cino Cleano and ensure great tasting coffees every time! This product is now available at Home Barista Institute for $16 each.
This is one of the most frequently asked questions in our coffee classes. The answer could only be “not often enough”.
Domestic machines that have a fixed brewing unit with no cleaning cycle and, therefore, cannot easily be cleaned. Manufacturers of these types of machines generally recommend activating the pump to flush away the coffee residue after each use but this may not completely clean out coffee oil and particles, which can build up in the machine and lead to machine pump failure. Further more, milk lines and boilers do not benefit from this procedure so cleaning the machine with a specifically designed solution is an added measure to extending the life of the machine.

As you know, to keep the great taste of your coffee, it is important to keep your coffee machine clean. Fact: Every time you make a coffee from your machine, the coffee beans leave oily residue within the machine. As time passes, this oily residue will burn every coffee you make, leaving a bitter taste in your cup. Furthermore, the build up of this residue may lead to the pump failure.

So how do you avoid this? Here’s the answer… HBI product of the Month – “Cino Cleano” Cleaning Series.
