Tips For Cleaning Your Capresso Burr Grinder
September 20 2022 – Alex Melen
Cleaning your machines regularly is important to ensure you get the freshest and best cup of coffee every time! While it may seem difficult or tiring, the good news is you don’t have to clean as often as you think. Here are some useful tips for cleaning your Capresso burr grinder.
Things Required to Clean Your Capresso Burr Grinder
- Liquid soap
- Cotton swab or ball
How to Clean Your Capresso Burr Grinder
- Step 1
Firstly, be sure to remove the appliance plug from the socket. Don’t start cleaning with the coffee grinder plug still inside the socket!
- Step 2
Next, use the screwdriver to detach the burr grinder machine from the rest of the machine. It’s advisable to go through the product manual before you try detaching as every coffee grinder functions differently.
Typically, you’d have to detach two things for the coffee grinder – that is the hopper and upper grinding case. This is done to ensure that you can remove the coffee dust, or any other tiny particles and clean the inside of the grinder.
Thirdly, turn the grinder face down, tap the grinding machine to get the remaining beans or particles to fall out. Then use the brush to dust off the excess particles still stuck within the grinder or found around the coffee maker. Do use a soft brush so you don’t damage your grinder or your coffee maker.
Once done brushing, use a cotton swab to clean the feeder channel until it’s entirely clean from any coffee dust or particles. You can even clean the screws, teeth, or any part that require cleaning. For certain models, the upper and lower burr can be removed for a deeper clean.
- Step 4
Next, wet a sponge or use a brush to wash the plastic parts of the machine. Don’t run water over any of the metal parts of the machine as it can lead to electrical problems or even spoilage of your coffee machine.
- Step 5
After the cleaning processes are completed, reassemble the parts back together. Ensure that they are completely dried off before reassembly.
- Step 6
Lastly, season the grinder by grinding a small number of beans in the machine. This also ensures that all the parts are reassembled properly and working well. However, if the coffee beans aren’t grinding or aren’t as well as expected, inspect closely to diagnose the problem. Usually, if the grinding is not working as well, it’s due to a slight error in the reassembly or the parts are not put correctly in place. Otherwise, the product is already initially defective.
