How to Clean a Capresso Coffee Maker


A good cup of coffee depends not only on the quality of beans, but also on the quality and method used to brew it. Capresso is a Swiss-made brand of coffee makers and accessories. Its drip coffee maker requires regular cleaning like any coffee maker to remove built-up oils and debris from the coffee grounds. However, Capresso recommends cleaning its products with a dry cloth instead of using hot water like other brands.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper coffee filters or Capresso's GoldTone reusable filter
  • Soft cloth
  • Release the filter holder by pushing the manual release button, and remove the filter.

  • Take the handle of a coffee scoop to loosen any coffee in the filter holder, and wipe clean with the soft cloth. Wipe out GoldTone filters with a dry cloth; throw paper filters in the garbage.

  • Remove the feeder channel cover. Wipe out the inside of the now exposed feeder channel with the dry cloth.

  • Return the feeder channel cover, put the filter of your choice back into filter holder and close the filter holder securely.

Tips & Warnings

  • For extra cleaning, run a brew cycle of one part vinegar to three parts water. Thoroughly rinse the coffeemaker by running one or two more brewing cycles of water only.
  • Wait until the coffeemaker is fully cooled before cleaning.
