It is perfectly normal for you to want to cling on to your coffee maker for as long as possible. Unfortunately, like all things in life, your coffee machine will not last forever. The parts will eventually wear out, and problems will occur; all that leads to an inevitable end and you having to invest in a new unit.
On the bright side, the way you take care of your coffee machine will determine how long it will last. There are also some tips and tricks you can use to keep your coffee maker run like new for longer.
