How to Clean Your Coffee Maker

Maria Cleaveland of Equator Estate Coffees & Teas shares a tip for brewing great coffee: You should clean your coffee maker at least once a year using a product called Cleancaf or by running vinegar and water through the machine. If you do the latter, you’ll need to scrub the brew basket as well to make sure all the coffee buildup is gone.
