Servicing My Espresso Machine

I love a good cup of cappuccino - it can be a great start to the day and a pleasant afternoon pick-me-up. My home espresso machine gets a lot of use, so of course, I keep it very clean. Coffee beans contain essential oils and over time, the residue from those oils can stick to the machine's components and alter the flavor of the beverages. Regular cleaning not only maintains the quality of the coffee but also extends the life of the machine.

Yesterday, Kobrick Coffee's service and equipment manager, Donald Ibrekic, came out to my farm to do some work on my Winter House espresso machine. Donald has been servicing my machines for several years. He also gave us some helpful tips for maintaining the units in-between visits, so every cup of coffee, especially my delicious Fair Trade Organic Martha Stewart Coffees roasted by Barrie House, tastes perfect. Now, varieties of my coffee are also available at seven Stew Leonard's locations in Connecticut and Westchester, New York - see my Instagram post on @MarthaStewart48.
