What is coffee maker
Coffee maker is an appliance that brews coffee, which is made by extracting the flavors from roasted coffee beans. The most common types of coffee makers are percolators, drip machines, and espresso machines. These all have their own advantages and disadvantages. Percolators are the easiest to use, but they also take the longest time to brew a cup of coffee. Drip machines are more convenient than percolators, but they take a little longer to brew a cup of coffee than a percolator. Espresso machines are excellent for making espressos or other drinks with milk, crema, and sugar. They work best if used in conjunction with a milk frother.
The first espresso machine was invented in 1946 by Melina Mercouri, who was the wife of Greek politician Eleftherios Venizelos. It took until 1953 for a company called Bialetti to get a patent on an improved design of this machine — the Bialetti Moka Express. A few years later, Giovanni Ferro founded La Pavoni, one of the largest companies producing espresso machines today. Below, I will show you how to clean Keurig cofffee maker.

Here are the steps to clean Keurig coffee maker:

How to Go About It
Ideally, you should wash your machine’s replaceable components once a week.
- Remove the machine’s plug.
- Remove the water reservoir, lid, mug tray, and K-cup holder from the machine.
- Warm soapy water should be used to clean the mug tray and K-cup holder.
- Remove the water filter from the reservoir and lid, then clean the surfaces with a moist, soapy cloth.
- Rinse the reservoir and lid with water and let to air dry – you don’t want to use a towel to dry it since it will leave lint behind.
- Using a moist sponge, clean the outside surface.
- Replace all detachable pieces and reconnect the machine.
Once every two months:
- Every other month, replace the water filter cartridge to keep your coffee fresh.
- Begin by soaking a new cartridge in fresh water for five minutes, followed by a 60-second rinse.
- Wash the bottom filter holder’s mesh.
- Snap the top on after inserting the cartridge into the upper filter holder.
- Finally, replace it in your reservoir and secure it.

Approximately every three to six months:
- Descale your machine to eliminate hard water minerals that might accumulate over time and impair its performance.
- Fill the reservoir with 16 ounces of white vinegar or Keurig’s Descaling Solution to start the descaling process. Fill the glass with 16 ounces of clean water.
- Start the brew cycle without a K-cup and let the machine operate normally, catching the liquid in a mug.
- Repeat this step until the ADD WATER indicator lights up.
- Allow the brewer to cool for 30 minutes.
- Empty and thoroughly rinse the reservoir. Fill it all the way to the MAX line with fresh water and rinse it 12 times with the biggest cup size to eliminate any remnants of vinegar or descaling solution.
- As usual, brew the coffee.
When you find grounds in your K-cup holder, use a sponge to remove them so they don’t wind up in your beverage the next morning. If you’re experiencing problems brewing, it’s possible that coffee grounds have been lodged in the needles, which punch the entry and exit ports through which the water runs.
To clean Keurig needles, unplug the machine first. Then, before washing, Keurig suggests gently using a paperclip to remove out any blocking material stuck in the needles. You won’t have to worry about anything other than coffee in your morning brew if you follow these procedures.

I love cooking because it's so relaxing! I just put on my favorite tunes, and then get to work. First I'll look up what kind of food I want to cook, and find a good recipe for it. Then when the meal is ready everyone usually can't stop telling me how much they loved everything that was made. It makes me feel really accomplished knowing that people liked what I made for them!
