    Citric Acid How to

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys,
    well I am kinda ashamed to admit this but I havent used Citric acid in my Gran yet. Mainly because I kept forgetting to buy some. Well I finally remembered, but I have no idea what I am doing.

    So I would love some advice.

    Remove the shower screen from your machine. Dissolve 10g of citric acid in a cup of hot water, then add cold water to make the quantity up to a litre. Replace any water in the tank with the citric acid solution, then run 300ml (one and a half cups) of water through the group, then turn off the machine. Wait 20 minutes then turn on again and run another 300ml out, this time through the steam wand, then turn the machine off. Repeat once more, then empty any remaining solution from the tank, flush with clean water, refill and run about a litre of clean water through the machine, alternating between the group and the steam wand. Replace the showerscreen and youre ready to brew again. (Source: Alan Frew, Coffee For Connoisseurs, Melb.)
