Just outta curiosity...

Whats your coffee pot look like? Are you firm believer that an unwashed coffee pot holds better flavor per pot perked? Or are you one that would rather drink a cup from a clean coffee pot?

I rinse it out every time I make coffee, but I dont scrub it but occasionally.

To be honest, I never really thought about it.

I rinse every time. A dirty pot makes for bitter coffee. I like my coffee very strong, but I don't need that stale bitter bite that comes from the old crusties.

I dont drink coffee unless its from Tim Hortons. The time that I did have perked coffee I did however rinse it out before use, and then washed it once a week. I do however have a tea cup that gets cleaned every once in a while. I drink tea like its free so my cup is never really empty til late at night when im going to bed. I usually take an SOS pad to it about once ever month.

Coffee pot? I think the last time I had coffee in my place was almost 14 years ago.

Hail Citizens!

I would like to introduce to you my coffee pot.

I just rinse it out before each use and it rewards me with the delicious hot black wine of the mountains.

For sure wash it out every time. I just can't eat or drink from anything that I know isn't clean.

I own a french press.



I have found that cleaning it (screen, spring, vessle) in its entirety after each use yeilds a crisper, cleaner taste.

I can say this, for I have have made coffee daily in this press for a month with no cleaning whatsoever, just a mild rinse in tapwater. After a month the depth of flavor was incredible, but at the same time strangly reminicent of a bitter toxin.

So, my vote is for daily cleaning with a solvent that does NOT leave any taste traces (citric acid). Many soaps can leave residues that are difficult to wash off, bleaches are horrible and take forever to rinse off.

I give mine a quick rinse out after each brew, but that's about it, no scrubbing, no hot water just a quick rinse, it's all it ever seems to need anyway.

I've seen a coffee pot that hadn't been rinsed or cleaned in ages- some strong lemons helped with the cleaning there. I just drink tea- water goin in, water goin out! And it cleans the pot in the process!

I do this with my tea pot. I rinse it with water and then fill it back up. There's no need to scrub it except if you leave it with tea in it overnight or something. Then i'll give it a swipe.

I'm with Sailor420... clean occasionally, rinse ALWAYS. Stops the grunge from building up inside the water-filly-area. Sometimes run vinegar through it, to clean out the innards, but that's maybe once a year.

Yummy. The real black gold.
