Coffee beans contain ether oils - good for taste, but a challenge for hygiene. A fine film of grease is deposited in the pipes and continues to grow with every cup served. Every coffee prepared also leaves undesirable traces behind in the milk section of the fully-automatic system. Therefore the coffee system and the milk system must be cleaned daily according to the operating instructions when used. Cleaned systems which are not used for more than seven days should be cleaned again before operation. Please note the cleaning instructions in the operating instructions of your coffee machines.
It is not only since Coronavirus is hygiene required, in particular anywhere where foodstuffs are manufactured, processed and offered for sale or consumption. Good hygiene and manufacturing practice was described by the EU in 2016 in the guidelines for the PRP (“prerequisite programs”, basic hygiene measures) and HACCP (“Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points”, fundamentals for risk assessment and monitoring of critical control points).
Coffee preparation also places stringent requirements on hygiene safety, especially when milk is added as a foodstuff to coffee and water. Therefore for Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions it is a core task to make hygiene safety in the preparation of coffee as easy as possible for our customers and partners.
So that coffee becomes a pleasure and you gain time for your guests!
