How Do You Clean An Espresso Machine?
Q: We have a 'Krups' Espresso machine, and we have read the manual and cleaned it out with vinegar like it said, but the flavor is still not the same as it was when it was brand new.

If a full run with water at the end of the day doesn't do it; you may want to ad water mixed with one or two teaspoons of baking soda per litter. Sweetens up my pot. Run pure white vinegar through several times, and then water. Expresso machine cleaner sold at the grocery store.
