Our Summer Morning Coffee Routine!

I’m sharing affresh® in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™. #affresh

Hey All!

With Summer in full swing, we’re having guests come visit all summer long. We have some in our home right now, who are visiting and enjoying our warm sunny days here in Los Angeles. Due to our never ending stream of guests in our home, making coffee daily has become part of my summer morning routine. It’s important for me to keep to my morning routine, so that I can stay organized and on track with all my daily tasks and work. I wanted to share my daily morning routine and what products we use with you today, in hopes that it will help you with your summer schedules as well. One product we use often is affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner to ensure that every cup of coffee we brew each morning is quick and as tasty as the last. In case you’ve never heard of these, affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner is a specialty cleaner designed for your coffeemaker.

Just had to rave about them for a minute, as I love this product! Now on to my daily coffee routine…

I get up each morning, check my calendar to see what tasks and work need to get done, shower, make sure our guests have everything they need to get ready and shower, and whip up a batch of coffee and some breakfast for them. I usually make a few batches of coffee for them through out the morning and day. I pretty much act like the host of a bed and breakfast each day.

I make sure I have a variety of coffees available for my guests to choose from.

I also pull out some of my favorite mugs for them to sip their coffee from. I set up a brewing and condiment station, so my guests can enjoy their cup of coffee exactly as they’d like it. I recommend using a daily checklist to make sure you’re getting everything done through out your day.

I even whip up what I call a unicorn latte for me and my guests to enjoy each morning. I tend to want to make everything, including my coffee, very colorful and fun.

After I know everyone has had their daily fill of coffee, I use an affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner to clean out our coffee maker. Here is how to use it, if you’d like to try incorporate these into your morning routine as well.

How to use for multi-cup coffeemakers:

1. FILL the reservoir with water to max level
2. Drop 1 tablet into reservoir. (For coffeemakers with covered reservoirs, fill the brew pot with water and dissolve 1 tablet in the brew pot, then pour solution into water reservoir)

3. RUN 1 brew cycle (or ‘clean’ cycle if applicable) into brew pot.
4. DISCARD dirty water from brew pot and then fill reservoir with fresh water to max level
5. RUN 1 brew cycle using fresh water then discard to rinse the coffeemaker.

For single serve brewers you do the following:

1.FILL the reservoir to max level. Drop 1 tablet into reservoir.
2.RUN 2 brew cycles selecting largest cup size, discarding dirty water between brews.
3.DISCARD remaining water from reservoir. Fill reservoir with fresh water to max level.
4. RUN 2 additional brew cycles and then discard to rinse coffeemaker.

That’s how you use them! They are super easy to use and they are specially formulated to fight mineral buildup that can increase brewing time, affecting the taste of your coffee.  Each tablet is designed to descale your coffeemaker without a vinegar odor. Don’t want to clean our your coffemaker with vinegar or hate the smell of vinegar? Then you need some affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner! It gives you the powerful cleaning action without the smell. No need to mix, measure or stir. Just drop and brew. They also fight hard water deposits and mineral build up and are compatible with both multi-cup coffeemakers and single serve brewers.

After I use my affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner, I put away the coffeemaker and get on with the rest of my day. I check off each task through out the day until all my tasks and work is completed. I try to finish everything by 6pm and relax for the rest of the night. When you work from home, I find it helpful to keep normal business hours. This helps you know when to stop working and when to start personal family time.

That’s my daily routine! I hope you enjoyed hearing about it and I hope these tips help you on your own summer coffee routines!
