Which drinks leave the worst residue in capsule coffee machines?

The perks of having a capsule coffee machine like Nespresso® or Lavazza® are endless. You get to enjoy varieties of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, all in the convenience of a capsule. These drinks, however, leave residue in your machine, but some drinks are worse than others. Here is the beverages that leave the worst residue in capsule coffee machines. But don’t you worry, we will also guide you in how to remove these nasty residues.

Flavoured Coffee, Hot Chocolate, and Tea residues

The arrival of capsule drinks like flavoured coffee and hot chocolate was warmly welcomed by the capsule coffee machine community. Drinks like these are great and make having a capsule machine more worthwhile.

However, they tend to leave a dominating residue behind after each brew, affecting the taste of the next coffee you brew. Drinks like hot chocolate can leave an even thicker layer in your machine’s brewing chamber and washer plate. The washer plate especially builds up the most dirt, causing bacteria build-up and machine malfunction when left untended.

Flavoured coffees, on the other hand, can leave behind a bit more oil than regular coffee, due to the flavouring that is added to the beans. More odour and flavouring will also be left to linger in your next brew.

Those that enjoy brewing certain teas might even find a slight discolouration between brews, how’s about a cup of green coffee? All jokes aside, the combination of tastes and colours in your favourite coffee would not be pleasant.

You might find yourself tempted to stop with the flavoured coffees and hot chocolates now, but that isn’t necessary. There is a cleaning solution that will allow you to continue enjoying all these drinks!
