Daily Cleaning

Keeping your Miele coffee machine clean on a daily basis is essential for maintaining the flavor of your coffee and the longevity of the machine. Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the coffee grounds after each use. This prevents build-up and ensures that each cup of coffee is fresh.
  2. Clean the drip tray daily. Remove it and wash with warm soapy water to remove coffee residue and spills.
  3. Wipe down the exterior with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid abrasive materials that could scratch the surface.

Weekly Maintenance

Each week, give your coffee machine a deeper clean to prevent any operational issues:

  1. Clean the coffee spout and milk nozzle with a brush to remove any stuck-on coffee or milk residue.

Monthly Maintenance

Monthly maintenance is crucial for keeping your machine in optimal condition:

  1. Descale your coffee machine. Use Miele descaling tablets according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This process removes mineral buildup from water and improves the machine’s performance.
