Coffee machine mold trap: You should definitely not forget this

According to Statista, around 72 percent of Germans drink a cup of coffee regularly or every day. There are a number of options and a wide variety of machines for preparing coffee. But coffee machines can mutate into real bacteria and germ carriers if they are neglected. There is an increased risk of mold, particularly in the popular fully automatic coffee machines.

Since the coffee powder is ground directly in the machine, it is distributed generously throughout the interior of the machine and becomes warm and moist – the ideal breeding ground for mold. But mold can also be found in simple filter coffee machines if they are poorly cleaned. Below we will show you how to avoid your coffee machine becoming a mold trap.

In the table below we present the best fully automatic coffee machines.

The most important thing to ensure that fully automatic coffee machines remain mold-free is this proper cleaning. You should pay attention to the following steps:

Step 1: Stop it Cleaning program run the machine at least once a week if used daily. Unfortunately, this rinsing process alone is not enough to counteract mold and bacteria.

Step 2: The Coffee collection container should be emptied, cleaned and dried well every day after use. Make sure there are no residues in the container. The coffee grounds start to mold particularly quickly due to the moisture and heat.

Step 3: Also the Brew group should be cleaned regularly. A brewing group is an assembly in your fully automatic coffee machine or other coffee machine in which the coffee powder is brought into contact with the hot water. Clean them with clear water or detergent and then let them dry thoroughly. If the brewing group of your fully automatic machine cannot be removed, the regular rinsing process of the cleaning program is sufficient.

Step 4: Even that water tank should be emptied daily and cleaned with detergent to remove limescale or other dirt deposits. In addition to limescale, other germs can also form in the water tank.

Step 5: Finally, you should do the daily Milk frother Thoroughly clean your fully automatic machine. Milk residue can easily form and spread germs, especially in the frother.

In this table we present you with useful products for cleaning and descaling your fully automatic coffee machine:

Only the amount of data used is kept in mind; in the free version, each user has 10 GB available, after which the provider throttles the speed to 1 MBit/s. Only an email address is required to register.
