How to Clean Your Coffee Grinder
Posted in Featured
If, like me, you think you’re “cleaning” your coffee grinder simply by wiping it with a paper towel every once in a while, I have some news: We’ve been doing it wrong. Cleaning coffee grinders isn’t exactly intuitive, especially if you want to do it the right way—really getting down into the gears and freeing them of a virtually invisible layer of coffee oil. I combed cleaning sites and coffee blogs for tips on actually-effective ways to clean your coffee grinder, then tested them for myself. You could grab Q-tips or toothpicks, but a coffee grinder cleaning brush is a thing that exists, and is so much more civilized. Instead of grinding a handful of rice to pick up all of the coffee bits—a DIY method that can be damaging to your blades—I picked up a pack of coffee grinder cleaning tablets.
