Cross-contamination At The Coffee Machine?
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

At work we have a pretty fancy automatic coffee machine that dispenses different types of coffee, milk (reconstituted from a powder), hot chocolate, and hot water. I got my hands on the packages of the milk and hot chocolate powder and sure enough "may contain traces of gluten". So I thought I was really smart only drinking black coffee but now I'm wondering if my inability to concentrate is caused by cross-contaminated coffee. All drinks are dispensed from the same spouts. It looks a bit like this one here: touch-plus.jpg

Would it be enough to always run a hot water cycle before requesting my coffee?

This is my first post, and I am really grateful for any recommendations or advice you might have for me.

Thanks

parla

I would definately try running hot water through first. But I would also be concerned about how the powders fit into the machine and if chocolate powder gets carried into the coffee etc. Our machine was old but it was a standing joke that the tea had coffee in it, and the chocolate had tea etc.... Try a week without and see if you improve.
