Coffee grinder maintenance is integral to producing excellent tasting coffee, day after day.
The burrs within the coffee grinder need to be replaced regularly. How regularly your burrs need to be changed depends on the type of grinder and the volume of coffee being put through it. The image above shows new blades (left) vs blunt blades (right). Although it looks like a small difference, blunt grinder burrs will negatively affect the quality and consistency of your coffee. This is why it is so important to stay on top of your coffee grinder maintenance. If your coffee grinder has never had its burrs changed, there is a good chance they are blunt! Similarly, if you cannot remember the last time your coffee machine was serviced, then it is probably time to schedule a service.
Along with a daily cleaning schedule, every commercial coffee machine requires regular maintenance. This will help to prevent common machine problems. Moreover, well maintained equipment will give reliable service and produce the best coffee. The volume of coffee you use will determine how often you should have your equipment serviced. This could be 3 monthly, 6 monthly or yearly.
And don’t forget about water filters! Poor water quality due to unchanged water filters leads to mineral build up within the machine, and makes your coffee taste bad. Every service performed by us will include new water filters.
Poor maintenance is the number one cause of commercial coffee machine breakdowns. Consequences of this are loss of revenue and costly repairs.
