Specialty Cleaning Products for Coffee & Espresso Equipment Since 1936.

About Us

Our History

Urnex Brands, Inc, originally the Royal Urn Bag Company, was founded in 1936 to help the roasters and brewers in Manhattan deliver delicious coffee to demanding customers.

Almost immediately, the enemy of true coffee flavor became clear: oily buildup on equipment made fresh coffee taste bitter, and couldn’t be easily cleaned off. The solution was the original Urnex® Urn & Brewer Cleaner™. It came in small, hand-filled envelopes, each printed with the motto Urnex still uses today: “No More Bitter Coffee."

Urnex Brands, Inc. has come a long way since then. We offer a complete portfolio of products that serve all facets of the modern coffee industry. From super automatic espresso machines to shop grinders, if you have a cleaning need, we have an answer. Today, Urnex® Brand products can be found anywhere from the countertops of home coffee enthusiasts to the world’s most sophisticated espresso bars—in more than 65 countries.

Urnex Brands Inc. also offers specialty brands—Puro Brand and Full Circle. Puro branded products are developed for the unique needs of professional baristas around the world. Full Circle products are environmentally transparent, phosphate-free, and odorless.

Urnex is committed to helping people everywhere brew and serve the best coffee. We have evolved to better serve customers worldwide by always maintaining the passion for coffee and standards we were founded on: no more bitter coffee.
