Third wave specialty coffee is always at your fingertips with the Oracle® espresso machine. The regular cleaning and maintenance of your machine is essential in keeping it in the best working order while also ensuring that each and every coffee tastes great. The first step is to clean the portafilter and filter basket. After regular use, you'll start to notice the build-up of coffee residue in the portafilter and filter basket. We recommend removing the filter basket and washing it with a scouring brush and light detergent in hot water as part of your cleaning routine. If you still notice difficult-to-remove build-up, you can use a cleaning tablet to soak the metal part of the portafilter in hot water. Finally, flush the portafilter after brewing each shot and dry it thoroughly with a cloth. If you follow these tips, your portafilter and basket will be squeaky clean—and your coffee will taste exceptional.
