Why does it take a long time for coffee to brew? - There may be a build up of lime or mineral deposits forming inside the coffeemaker. These deposits must be removed every 30 days (if coffeemaker is used daily) to prevent clogging of parts, which will affect performance. More frequent cleaning may be necessary if your water is very hard.
