When choosing a coffee machine and beans, it's worth considering not only the type of beans, but also the right place for the machine in your home. Even a top-of-the-range coffee machine can cause unforeseen problems if the wrong location is chosen. Here are some tips on how to avoid mistakes when choosing a place for your coffee machine at home.
Avoid placing the coffee machine against a wall
It is important that the coffee machine is clearly visible and easily accessible from all sides. If the machine is blocked or against a wall, you may miss it starting to leak water or other problems. Proper placement of machines ensures a quick response to any problems and helps avoid higher repair costs.
Avoid placing the coffee machine next to the stove
Although often chosen, this location can be detrimental to the longevity of your machine. Due to the short distance from the cooking stove, grease droplets can enter the vents of the appliance and block the internal system. It has been reported that one in five coffee machines brought in for repair is contaminated with grease. Although this does not affect the taste of the coffee, a clean machine always looks and works better.
When choosing a location for a coffee machine in your home, it's important to take the time to consider the various options. The right location will help to keep the machine clean and functional for longer. Remember that the 'breath' of the machine should be clean air and not grease.
