To prevent ground coffee powder from getting into the crockery you must use special filters, which can be both disposable and reusable.
A reusable filter is almost always supplied with the coffee maker, while disposable ones are sold separately and cost an average of 2.5 rubles apiece. The first option does not guarantee that there is no need to use a disposable filter, especially if coffee is ground very fine.
The disposable filters are qualified by number, namely 1, 2, 4, 6,8 and 12.
The most common are numbers 2 and 4. While 2 is more suitable for small volume coffee makers, and 4. for models with a tank capacity of 1 liter or more. The advantage of using them is not only the absence of any sediment in the coffee pot, but also easier maintenance of the appliance. When you use a disposable filter, you can throw it away with the used coffee grounds.
Disposable filter made of unbleached paper
Disposable filter made of bleached paper
Disposable filters made of bamboo fiber
The last option is the most uneconomical, but at the same time its use is no different from the other two types, so it is not rational to buy such filters.
The reusable filter must be rinsed after each use as there is no other way to clean it of coffee powder residue.
In addition, once a month you should clean the filter with additional cleaning tools, because it gets darker and collects coffee oil residues while in use.
Reusable filters are available in two basic types: only nylon, but rather thin and wear-resistant, and nylon covered with a thin layer of titanium nitride, which turns the color of the filter golden. This coating makes the filter more durable and wear-resistant, without affecting the taste of the beverage in any way.
What does the taste of coffee in a drip coffee maker depend on??
In order to enjoy the taste of coffee made with a drip coffee maker, it is necessary not only to choose the right appliance, but also to follow all the rules for brewing coffee.
For example, the optimal temperature for brewing coffee is 90-95 degrees Celsius. Not all devices can reach this temperature, but only those with a power of about 1000 watts. If the equipment available in the kitchen does not have this feature, it is best to pour already hot water into the water tank, thereby helping the unit to bring it to the desired temperature. In addition, this way you can greatly reduce brewing time.
The taste of coffee made with a drip coffee maker depends on the product itself.
In order to obtain a really tasty and flavorful drip coffee, it is better to buy freshly ground coffee before brewing it.
The fresher is the coffee and its roasting, the more aromatic the drink will be. You should also grind the beans properly, because a coarse grinding will allow water to pass through too quickly, not providing the desired strength, while a too fine one, on the contrary, will retain water, which will lead to the appearance of bitterness.
Ground coffee is ideal for making a delicious beverage
The water used for making coffee should be as pure as possible, which can only be achieved by using a filter.
If there is no capacity for water filtration, in this case it is better to choose a model of coffee maker, in which it is built inside the device and ensures a good quality of the liquid itself.
Types of filters
To ensure that in the process of brewing coffee ground powder does not fall into the dish, it is necessary to use special filters, which can be both disposable and reusable.
A reusable filter is almost always supplied with the coffee maker, while disposable ones are purchased separately and cost an average of 2.5 rubles apiece. The first method does not guarantee that you do not need a single-use filter, especially if the coffee is ground very fine.
How the machine is cleaned
To remove deposits, branded Tassimo tablets are used. The manufacturer recommends taking only original chemicals, as other means based on acids can damage the machine and affect the taste of future coffee. The cleaning procedure consists of several steps.
The water tank is filled with liquid and two tablets are added. After they have dissolved completely, place the receptacle in the coffee machine. To start the program, a service T-disc is needed. Place it with the code downward and close the brewing head. A container of at least 500 ml must be installed instead of a cup. Then press and hold “Start” for 5 seconds.
The program takes about half an hour and the orange light comes on at the end of the program. Empty out the used solution, rinse the water container and fill it up to the maximum volume with clean liquid. The next step is to rinse the coffee machine, for this briefly press the “Start” button. Repeat this procedure three or four times to completely remove the solution. After this, remove the service T-disc and fill the tank with water. Now you can use your machine again.
Descaling tablets are available in official representatives, as well as in some supermarkets.
