Raspberry Truffle Coffee from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Rich chocolate flavors compliment the sweet raspberry and cream in this luxurious dessert coffee that’s simple enough for everyday. The coffee can be brewed in a single-serve coffee maker to make it quickly for one, or you can multiply the recipe and use a standard 12-cup coffee maker to serve a group. It’s like getting a fancy coffeehouse espresso drink, but you can do it yourself at home in just a few easy steps. Plus, there’s no one to misspell your name on the side of your to-go cup.

10 – Better Tasting Coffee

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

No one wants last month’s leftovers in today’s coffee, so make sure to clean your coffee maker every 30 days. Oil residue from coffee beans can build up; cleaning prevents off-flavors from affecting your coffee.

 

9 – Your Coffee Maker Lasts Longer

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Regular cleaning prevents water mineral deposits, which can shorten a coffee maker’s life, from building up in the heater.

 

8 – Speedy Brew Times

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Calcification from hard water can build up in the heater pipes, insulating them so the heater takes longer and increases brew times. Cleaning fixes this.

 

7 – Clean and Dry

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Discard wet grounds after brewing and don’t let them sit in the filter basket all day. Leave the lid up to after a washing to ensure a clean, dry environment.

 

6 – Coffee Windows Won’t Lie

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

In some coffee maker reservoirs or coffee pots, there is a coffee level window showing how many cups of coffee are left. Regular cleaning prevents you from thinking there’s coffee left when there isn’t.

 

5 – Shine On

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Tannins in coffee can cause brown stains to build up on the interior of coffee pots. Regular cleaning keeps pots looking shiny and new.

 

4 – Office Mugs Aren’t Different

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

A quick rinse doesn’t clean out the oil residue from daily coffee drinking. Send it through the dishwasher or wash it with hot, soapy water. If it’s still sporting coffee rings, mix equal parts of baking soda and water into a paste and scour the stains prior to washing.

 

3 – Buffy the Stain Slayer

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

The appearance of your appliances can affect the overall look of your kitchen. Keep your kitchen looking sparkly and new by rubbing down the outside of your coffee maker.

 

2 – Clean Hidden Parts

How to Clean Your Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Don’t forget to clean all the pieces hiding inside your coffee maker. Clean the brew basket, any permanent filters, the drip tray and the hot plate. Check the manual to see which parts are dishwasher safe.

 

1 – If It Looks Good, You Look Good

Irish Coffee with the BrewStation® Coffee Maker from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 

The Irish are distinctly known for their love of good stout and good whiskey, so it’s no surprise that Jack Koeppler, owner of the San Francisco restaurant the Buena Vista in 1952, teamed up with travel writer Stanton Delaplane to try to recreate a tasty drink the former had during a pass-through at Ireland’s Shannon Airport.

The delicious coffee recipe featured Irish whiskey and cream, and is still served at the restaurant today. These two are often credited for bringing Irish coffee as we know it now to America. Boy, are we glad they did!

With its dark coffee flavor and sweet brown sugar, it almost tastes like chocolate. Add whiskey and top it with whipped cream to create a warming and smooth cocktail coffee, great for a cool night. It’s a great accompaniment to serve alongside dessert, too.
