A Tassimo Coffee Maker allows you to brew one cup of coffee at a time, so you always have a fresh cup of coffee when you want one. Although a Tassimo Coffee Maker requires little maintenance, it must be cleaned and descaled from time to time. Letting this job go eventually changes the flavor of your coffee, as well as possibly causing a clog in the machine.
Things You'll Need
- Dish soap
Remove all of the detachable parts of your Tassimo Coffee Maker, including the drip tray, and place them in a dish pan of hot water and dish soap. Clean these pieces by hand and allow them to air dry in your dish drainer.
Insert the reusable cleaning disc that came with the machine in the brewing mechanism once a week. Make sure the bar code is facing downward. The cleaning disc not only cleans the machine, it also descales the coffee maker.
Pour cold water in the water reservoir and turn the Tassimo Coffee Maker on. Allow the coffee maker to run its usual cycle using the cleaning disc instead of coffee grinds.
Wait for the cycle to complete and then remove the cleaning disc. Store it in a safe place for use next week. Turn the coffee maker off. Remove the cup of water that came out during the cleaning cycle and wash the cup with dish soap and water.
Wet a rag with a 50/50 vinegar/water solution and use it to wipe down the outside of the Tassimo Coffee Maker. This not only cleans and disinfects the outside of the machine, it leaves it shining.
Tips & Warnings
- Never open the brewing mechanism during the cleaning process. Wait until it comes to a complete stop.
- Never use warm or hot water in the Tassimo Coffee Maker's water reservoir.
