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. We use it everyday, so I was wondering if there is something we could do to get the old coffee smell/flavor out of the machine?

A: I am only familiar with big hotel machine and my own cheap Mr. coffee pot. I run Espresso grind through it. Make sure the area above the grounds is clean. May need a brush. 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.
