A cause for vigilance?


The study highlighted significant variations in the quantity and types of bacteria found across the different coffee machines. Interestingly, two of the tested machines exhibited no concerning bacteria. The presence of E. coli was limited to only one device, which coincidentally had the highest bacterial concentration in its water tank. Regular cleaning practices should alleviate any concerns, as most coffee makers heat the water to temperatures exceeding 75°C, effectively eliminating a majority of bacteria. In summary, it’s prudent to give your beloved kitchen companion a thorough cleaning. After all, a little extra precaution can never hurt.
