Are you tired of waking up to a dirty, grungy coffee maker? 

Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. But fear not, my caffeine-loving friends, because today we’re going to learn how to clean our trusty Bunn coffee makers.

What You’ll Need To Clean Your Bunn Coffee Maker

First things first, let’s gather our supplies. 

You’ll need some:

  • White vinegar 
  • A clean cloth or sponge
  • A small brush (like an old toothbrush) to get into those tight corners

Next, let’s get started! 

Cleaning Your Coffee Maker

Begin by unplugging your coffee maker and removing the coffee pot and any filters or coffee grounds from the machine. 

Now, take your white vinegar and fill the water reservoir about halfway. This is where the cleaning magic happens, so make sure to use enough vinegar to properly clean the machine.

Next, run a brewing cycle like you normally would to make coffee. This will allow the vinegar to help clean out the internal parts of the machine, including the sprayhead and the internal tubing – although, you’ll need to wipe them physically in a minute as well. 

Once the brewing cycle is complete, let the vinegar solution sit in the coffee maker for about 20 minutes. This will give it plenty of time to work its cleaning magic.

While the solution is working, take your clean cloth or sponge and use it to wipe down the exterior of the coffee maker, including the control panel and any buttons. You can also use the small brush to get into tight corners and remove any built-up grime or coffee grounds.

Once the exterior is clean, it’s time to tackle the inside of the machine. Empty the vinegar solution from the water reservoir and rinse it thoroughly with clean water. Then, take your brush and scrub the inside of the reservoir to remove any lingering bits and pieces.

Now, take a clean, damp cloth and use it to wipe down the interior of the coffee maker, including the sprayhead and the internal tubing. Make sure to remove any vinegar or coffee grounds that may be stuck in these areas.

Finally, refill the water reservoir with clean water and run another brewing cycle to rinse it out for the last time. Once the cycle is complete, your Bunn coffee maker should be sparkling clean and ready for another round of delicious coffee brewing.
