Here in this article, I will give you a step by step process which I prefer doing.

Step: 1

First things first, if you have any leftover coffee you just pour it out. I know it must be hard to pour out your favorite coffee but you have to do it, in any case, to clean the machine properly.

Step: 2

Next step is to clean the glass although the filter is going to have some small grinds in it. You might notice some of the small grinds stuck to the bottom so pour more water in the glass to loosen the grinds stuck to the bottom. After pouring water into the glass you have to shake the glass in a normal way so the grinds start flowing in the water and get unstuck from the bottom. The thing to note here is that you don’t throw the grinds in the drain because they might get stuck in there. You can either throw the grinds in the garbage or toilet.

Step: 3

There are times when you can see the small grinds of coffee stuck to the filter so you could just wash it out. The next things you are going to do is pull the top down of the filter and clean it from insides. This will make sure that you cleanse the filter deeply and properly. You can also use soap to clean the filter. But if you prefer cleaning the filter daily then water is enough to clean the filter. You can do a deep scrub of the filter once every month.

Step: 4

This is a deep cleaning process of the filters by taking apart the plunger. If you are planning to clean the filters deeply then you can follow this step. You have to spin the filter in the clockwise while holding the rod attached to it firmly. There are different products like coffee cleaning solutions in the market, you can choose these products to clean the filters. They are very effective.

These were the four easy steps that you can follow to clean your French press coffee maker easily and effectively.

Generally speaking, I prefer doing this type of deep cleaning every time I switch roasts so that you don’t get any leftover residue flavors or if you are really worried about tastes then I would recommend doing a deep clean.
