Keep Coffee Tasting Like .....Coffee

Over time, your coffee-maker will build up a "plaque" of calcium and other minerals & gradually build up a mineral deposit that cuts off the flow of water - just like heart disease.

Make your coffee pot last up to four times longer and keep that real coffee taste. Once every 6-8 weeks add a half cup of vinegar to the water and let it cycle through.

Simply rinse with another cycle of plain water and your coffee will continue to taste great and won't get "hardening of it's arteries".

    I have heard of this - it doesn't add a vinegar taste to the coffee?

I guess I will just have to try it!

    That's what I do and it works!
