Subject: cleaning the gunk out of my ama milano electric moka pot
 

I have a beautiful AMA Milano electric moka pot, in very good condition, except for the inside of the boiler...brown, flaky gunk all over it...yuk! I have soaked it 4 times, a total of about 2 hours, with a product called Cleancaf, and it's just not doing the trick. When I look down into the boiler, it's brown and flaky...more like layers of coffee, rather than mineral deposits, but I can't be sure. The cleancaf is not citric acid...would that be better to use? Do I need to get some kind of a brush down in there and brush it out? Help...any suggestions...I'm really looking forward to making coffee with this thing, but it's really gross now. Thanks for the help! Also...what grind size can anyone recommend for moka pots...I'm using (unfortunately) a Breville Smart Grinder...aaarrrgh!
