fair enough! will get one ordered up!
Microfibre cloth or a Hasbean barista towel.
Gets it clean and dry and also easy to clean as you can just stick them in the washing machine. Paintbrush... not so much.
Who the whole 9 yards and get some canned air
I just wipe it down with a towel.
Being from up north do you need to? Im further north than you and Ive never changed the water filter and had my machine for about 3 or 4 years now.
Probably not, my water is easily drinkable from the tap it's just I thought it was something you were meant to do to stop the machine deteriorating.
Is this the place to say - I gave up caffeine almost a month ago
Funny though I bought myself having loaded the coffee machine capsule and about to fill with water without thinking this morning.
So I'll clean up the MCAP4 and the MCAL and keep for entertaining and BBQs
There's some decent decaf beans around these days. Keep the habit aliiiiive!
and took up what ?
you can buy purolite cation resin to refill them ...
moreover, I would like to get a meter to determine when filters are exhausted as the ion-exchange/softening reaction declines;
are they so expensive https://shop.tchibo-coffee.co.uk/products/charcoal-water-filters-pack-of-6
Any recommendation for coffee cleaner - I've used this previously
- pulycaf ... is the, 'organic' urnex less effective ? seems a bit cheaper though. pulycaf ~£9 last one I bought
irrespective of which , I still have to put the pf in anti-limescale solution, after the pulycaf, too.
I've noticed some TKMaxx stores have some bargains on 1kg coffee bean bags. Only issue is some of them don't have a roasting date on but they're as cheap as £7.99.
Remember to descale frequently. Those are what came out after the initial tank flush (heat exchanger).
I had put off descaling for a while and... Regret it. Not even that long, either.. Maybe 6 months past when I'd normally do it at most.
... but it's not green like my BZ02/HX, or ex, Audrey, also,
strange that it's out of solution too.
That's just the water as it came out of the boiler, to make way for the solution.
This might offend the connoisseur's out there, but has anyone seen this? (its a pi based coffee machine in kit form)
I posted it a few weeks ago but realised it doesn't make espresso. It's bean-to-cup pour over which is a nice idea, but neither as tasty or as neat. Still very tempted to get one!
Ah.. apologies, didn't search for this before posting!
I love the pi and was dreaming up a pill dispensing gadget, so this is a similar contraption realised.
I like the idea of being able to txt it, most likely from under my duvet. haha
Yep, I love the idea of taking it all to bits and tweaking it. TBF if I get compostable filters I could make cleanup pretty fast...
ok wondered if it had an inox liner, like bits of sage.
I have to syphon out mine, and don't have access to the inner chamber.
I don't think it has a liner, and given the water was a translucent green on the first solution flush, I figure it's not some kind of clay.
