Puro espresso machine cleaner removes the residual build-up of coffee solids and oils from screens, valves, and tubes of brewing groups. This is important to quality coffee because a dirty machine will create dirty-tasting coffee. Backflush your machine following the directions below (and on the label), and soak the portafilter baskets (not the handles) in a solution of very hot water and Puro.
Thoroughly rinse groups and portafilters. Always re-season your machine and portafilters by making and discarding one espresso on each group. Espresso machines should be cleaned daily.
How to Backflush
Insert blind filter in portafilter and add up to 1/2 teaspoon (3 g) of Puro Caff Powder.
Insert portafilter into group head. Activate brew cycle for 10 seconds. Stop 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
Remove portafilter and activate brew cycle and rinse portafilter in stream of water from group head.
Re-insert portafilter without cleaning powder. Activate brew cycle for 10 seconds. Stop 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
Replace blind filter with standard basket. Make a cup of espresso to remove any traces of cleaner.
Discard espresso - do not drink.
