To make great espresso, you need a well-maintained machine, and that means a strict cleaning regimen. Among the most important aspects of espresso machine cleaning is back-flushing and scrubbing the group-head(s). Coffee grounds, oil & residue will gradually build up there, drastically impairing the taste of your coffee unless regularly cleaned. The Urnex Scoopz Espresso Brush is designed to make this cleaning routine a little easier. It’s shaped to allow for easy scrubbing of the group head with its firm nylon bristles, positioned at the correct angle. It also includes a dosing spoon at the other end of the handle to use with Urnex Cafiza Cleaning Powder and a blind filter for backflushing.
