How To Clean Your Moka Pot I:

Quick Guide 

Hi there! It is important to properly clean and dry your moka pot after each usage. Here are 4 easy steps on how to keep your moka pot clean & happy.

What You Need:
-Warm Water 
-Toothbrush

Step I

Once you finished brewing (and enjoyed your coffee) disassemble the pot, remove the funnel and throw out the grounds. BTW, to rapidly cool down the moka pot  just put it directly under a stream of cold water for about 10-15 seconds. This should be enough to cool it down completely.

Step II

Remove the gasket and filter, then rinse moka pot and all the parts under warm water. Make sure all residue and loose grounds are completely removed. Use a toothbrush or toothpick to remove the coffee grounds stuck in the filter. Wash your moka pot with warm water only, do not use any soap, detergents, steel wool or other abrasive products. 
Remember to never ever wash the moka pot or milk frother in the dishwasher.

Let all the parts dry and make sure there is no moisture hidden underneath. Do not reassemble the moka pot until all parts are completely dry to avoid oxidation.

Step IV

Once all the parts are dry, reassemble the moka pot. Make sure the silicon gasket is properly installed to avoid possible coffee leaks between the moka pot parts next you use it. 

Remember to clean the center pipe and weight every 2 weeks to avoid clogging.
