• White vinegar
• Sponge or cloth
• Coffee cleaning tablets (optional)
• Drip tray liner
Now that you have everything you need, let’s start cleaning!
Now it’s time to get those small crevices and hard-to-reach areas. Use a sponge or cloth with a little bit of distilled water and white vinegar to clean the exterior parts of the machine. Pay special attention to the steam wand, the portafilter, and the coffee grounds container.
