Why regular cleaning is important

A clean milk system is crucial for the taste and quality of your coffee. Think about it: what happens if you don't clean your Jura's milk system regularly?

Bacteria and milk fats accumulate, resulting in a bad taste and possibly even health risks. In addition, a clogged milk pipe can lead to malfunctions in your coffee machine.

Regular cleaning ensures that the machine continues to perform optimally. A well-maintained milk system ensures consistent, high-quality milk foam.

This is not only important for the taste of the coffee but also for the presentation. Nobody wants a cappuccino with lumpy, old milk foam!

If you regularly clean your Jura milk system, you will also extend the life of your machine. Milk residue can damage internal components, leading to expensive repairs or even the need to replace the machine.

By simply spending a few minutes every day cleaning your milk system, you will save time and money in the long run.

Even the best Jura machines require maintenance to keep working optimally, so incorporate this cleaning into your daily routine.

Step-by-step guide to cleaning the Jura milk system

Now that you know why cleaning is so important, let's see how you can best do it. Follow these steps and your milk system will stay in top condition.

  1. Preparation : Start by turning off the machine and disconnecting the milk system. Make sure you have all the supplies you need at hand, such as cleaning tablets and a clean cloth.

  2. Rinsing with Water : First flush the milk system with warm water. This will help remove most of the milk residue before using the cleaning tablets.

  3. Use of Cleaning Tablets : Fill a container with water and add a Jura milk system cleaning tablet. Place the hose in the container and start the cleaning program according to the machine's instructions.

  4. Disassemble and Clean the Parts : Disassemble the milk system and clean all loose parts thoroughly with warm water and a mild dishwashing liquid. Make sure you clean all nooks and crannies thoroughly.

  5. Dry and Assemble : Allow all parts to dry completely before reassembling. A moist environment is a breeding ground for bacteria, so this is an important step.

  6. Repeat Regularly : Clean the milk system after each day of use and perform a thorough cleaning, including the use of cleaning tablets, at least once a week.

By following these steps you will ensure that your milk system is always ready to use and that your coffee always tastes great.

Additional Tips for the Maintenance of your Jura Milk System

In addition to the cleaning steps mentioned above, there are some additional tips that can help you keep your Jura milk system in top condition.

  3. Check for Blockages : Regularly inspect the milk pipes and openings for blockages and clean them immediately.

  5. Follow the Manual : Always refer to your machine's owner's manual for specific cleaning instructions and recommendations. Each Jura machine can be slightly different, and proper care ensures the best results.

By following these additional tips, you can extend the life of your milk system and ensure that you always enjoy perfect coffee.
