‘Spring Forward’ Reminder: It Takes a Clean Coffee and Espresso Maker to Brew the Best Coffee
Elmsford, NY, March 2012 : With Spring nearly upon us, Full Circle introduces an eco-friendly way to "spring clean" your coffee machine - a key factor in creating the best home brew possible.
The days are getting longer, and the approach of daylight savings time signals it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning and other routines to welcome the new season. Replace batteries in the smoke alarm: check. Change filters in the air conditioner: check. Clean the coffee and espresso maker? Check!
Now, anyone who brews coffee at home can easily cross this often neglected job off of their "to do" list in just a few moments, thanks to Full Circle’s complete line of environmentally conscious cleaning products.
“Too many people overlook their coffee machine during their spring cleaning regime or use the wrong products,” says Kofi Amoako, Technical Director of Full Circle at Urnex. According to the National Coffee Association 2011 report, at home consumption of coffee is up: over 50% of all adults drink coffee and, of those, 85% report they prepare coffee at home. That means there are a significant number of people who may not grasp the importance of putting “Clean the coffee and espresso maker” on their spring cleaning list.
Devoted coffee enthusiasts take pride in knowing how to brew a perfect cup of coffee or espresso. They buy gourmet beans, which they grind themselves. They own top-of-the-line coffee and espresso makers. But, these same well-informed coffee lovers may be unpleasantly surprised to learn that coffee maker reservoirs ranked as the fifth germiest item in the home today (May 2011 NSF International study, “Germiest Places in the Home”).
“Regular soap and traditional methods (such as vinegar and water) are inadequate to remove the deposited coffee oils that quickly accumulate,” Amoako adds. “This oily residue, along with build-up of mold, minerals and lime deposits, is also the source of bitter tasting coffee and problems related to equipment malfunction.”
Those who savor a consistently great cup of coffee will appreciate the convenience of using the Full Circle products that clean coffee and espresso equipment in the same amount of time it takes to brew or grind a cup of coffee. But, the benefits of these products extend far beyond simplicity of use during spring cleaning time.
The Full Circle line of eco-friendly odorless coffee and espresso machine cleaning products include:
- Descaling Power and Liquid to break down lime scale and mineral build up inside the machine
- Cleaning Powder to remove oily residue and mold that lead to bitter tasting coffee and unnecessary machine wear
- Cleaning Tablets to effectively remove build-up inside an automatic espresso machine
- Coffee Grinder Cleaning Tablets to maintain proper function of burrs and the motor inside the grinder
