Yes, Cleaning your coffee machine is important. To begin lets put it this way, when you cook dinner on a pan do you clean it afterwards? Confronting but extremely relevant!

Coffee beans once roasted and beginning the ageing process release all their aromas and oils. When you prepare coffee weather it be on a commercial espresso machine or on a one touch bean to cup machine all those oils, aromas and the rest leave behind some pretty crazy things that yes can lead to major malfunctions and sanitary problems…

Our technical foreman recommends you should at minimum descale your coffee machine at least once every 8 weeks regardless of if the machine asks for it or not. Being proactive rather than reactive with your maintenance will indefinitely give you a much longer lasting coffee machine and simply a better tasting coffee. 

Over the last 36 years QCMS has been servicing Australia’s coffee machine industry and we have seen it all. When coffee machines are ill maintained the list of problems that could and will occur are endless. Not just affecting your internal piping’s but the entire product. From creepy crawlies to slithering slugs, coffee with its sweet aroma and the heat evaporating from your coffee machine will attract some things that will shock you.

We recommend you follow these steps.

  • Rinse your coffee brewer or diffuser at least once a week
  • Backwash your espresso group at least once a week (industry use recommends once a day)
  • After making the morning rush of coffee at home try preparing a pre-ground coffee without actually putting coffee into the machine. This will clean out your brewer and pipes of any left over coffee or sediment.
  • Use milk sanity solution after each round of coffee.
  • Descale your coffee machine every 6 – 8 weeks (depending on local water hardness)
  • Change your water filter once if has reached its usage limit
  • Wipe down the exterior of your coffee machine at least once a week and check for coffee drips here and there. (Critters love these)
  • For commercial coffee grinders (not automatic coffee machines) use Grinder Clean to remove all coffee oils. Remembering to grind and discard the next 50 grams of coffee. We recommend this once a month for home use and once a week for commercial use.
  • Service your coffee machine & grinder once a year for home use and every 3 – 6 months in commercial use.

Popullar Cleaning Questions

  • Are auto-frothers or cappucinatores difficult to clean?
    • Auto-frothers are extremely simple devices to clean, as no milk is actually drawn into the machine.  To clean them, all that is required is for water or MSS (Milk Sanitising Soloution) to be drawn through the hose after a certain number of coffees. Most automatic machines have the capability of notifying you when a clean is needed however we reccomend you do a smiple quick rince after each coffee in a domestic enviroment, In commercial enviroments we reccomend you do a MSS clean every day to keep the coffee machine up to  date with the OH&S standards.
  • How often should I de-scale my machine?
    • We recommend that you de-scale your machine every 6 to 8 weeks.
