Puly Caff Espresso Machine Backflushing Detergent 900g
Professional espresso machine powdered group handle cleaner imported directly from Italy and specially designed for use with espresso machines.
Use the powdered cleaner to ‘backflush’ your machine removing residual build-up from your machines brewing valves and tubes. We recommend you ‘backflush’ your machine once a week.
Thoroughly rinse group handles before re-using and always ‘re-season’ your espresso machine by making and discarding an espresso from each cleaned group handle before using machine to serve drinks.
For commercial users, the suggested backflush period is once every week. Half a teaspoon of powder should be used in the backflush plate after it has been inserted into the group handle. Insert the handle into the group as if making coffee and run the group for 7 seconds. Remove the handle and run the group to rinse the remaining foam out of the blankplate. Backflush as normal at least six times, repeating the normal routine of inserting the group handle, running the group for 7 seconds, removing the handle and tipping out any water in it.
Group handles (portafilts) should also be seperated from the internal filter baskets and all soaked in a solution of 1 teaspoon powder and hot water. Keep the rubber handles of the portafilts out of the solution or the cleaner will eat into them.
A solution of 1 teaspoon powder and 1 litre hot water can be poured down your espresso machines drip tray to keep the waste hose clean and stop it blocking up.
