Part 3 of 3: How to Choose the Right Coffee Maker | Maintenance and Care

Welcome back to the final part of our coffee maker series with Two Pillars! So far, we've covered brewing methods and how to choose the right coffee maker. Now, we're going to talk about the all-important topic of maintenance and care.

First things first, make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning your coffee maker. Regular cleaning and maintenance will not only prolong the life of your machine, but it will also ensure that your coffee tastes its best. And, if you're using an eco-friendly coffee maker like the ones we've recommended, you'll want to take extra care to protect the environment.

One easy way to reduce waste is to use the Duo Cover® when warming up your coffee in the microwave. This silicone splatter guard mat keeps your microwave clean and your coffee hot, without the need for disposable paper towels or plastic wrap. Plus, it's dishwasher safe, making it super easy to clean.

If you're someone who likes to take their coffee on the go, the ZipBag® is the perfect solution for storing your coffee beans or grounds. These reusable silicone bags are not only great for coffee, but also for storing snacks, fresh produce, and leftovers. And, if you're cooking sous vide, they work great for that too! Just be sure to clean them thoroughly before reuse.

When it comes to cleaning up after making your coffee, skip the paper towels and opt for a Swedish Dishcloth instead. These all-natural cloths are perfect for wiping down your coffee maker and any spills or drips. Plus, they're compostable, so you can feel good about reducing your carbon footprint.

Last but not least, the UniLid® is a great eco-friendly replacement for plastic wrap. Use it to cover any leftovers from your coffee breaks or to keep your coffee fresh in the fridge. It fits all shapes and sizes and even has food tracking, so you know exactly what's inside.

And there you have it, folks! By following these maintenance and care tips and using eco-friendly products like the Duo Cover®, ZipBag®, Swedish Dishcloth, and UniLid®, you can enjoy your coffee guilt-free, knowing that you're doing your part to protect the environment.

Thanks for joining us for this coffee maker series with Two Pillars. We hope you've learned something new and found the perfect coffee maker for your needs. Until next time, happy brewing!
