For many people, a cup of coffee is an integral part of their morning routine.
Stephanie was no different, but for a long time, her body had been reacting unusually after her morning coffee. Instead of feeling energized, she felt physically ill.
Confused and concerned, Stephanie decided to get to the bottom of her morning sickness. She meticulously followed her usual routine, even trying different variations, but the result was always the same: she felt sick.
After receiving an article from a friend about coffee machines, Stephanie decided to inspect her own. What she found was shocking: a thick layer of scale and a brown substance that looked like mold. "It was a huge shock," Stephanie said. "People think coffee machines are clean inside because they're often sealed, but that's far from the truth."
The health risks lurking in your coffee machine
Stephanie discovered that over the years, limescale had built up in the machine, and all the components were covered in the brown substance. While most coffee machines are easy to clean, some have small cavities that can harbor harmful substances.
Manufacturers recommend regular cleaning, but not all machines come with instructions on how to clean these hidden areas.
Stephanie's experience serves as a cautionary tale for all coffee lovers. "I always drank coffee at home, and within three sips, the strong reactions began," she shared. It's crucial to deep-clean your coffee machine regularly to avoid similar health issues.
