Maintaining the Espresso Machines

I love a good cup of cappuccino - it can be a great start to the day and a pleasant pick-me-up in the afternoon. I have several espresso machines here at my Bedford, New York farm and they get a lot of use, so of course I keep them very clean and well-maintained. 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 prolongs the quality of the coffee, but also extends the life of the equipment.

Yesterday, Kobrick Coffee's service and equipment manager, Donald Ibrekic, came by to check the machines. Donald has been servicing my machines for many years. He also gave us some helpful tips for maintaining the units in-between visits, so every cup of coffee tastes perfect.
