Coffee is by nature a very oily substance. Over time, coffee oils accumulate inside of your machine to form a rancid residue. This residue is responsible for the acrid smell you may recognize coming from a poorly maintained machine. Unfortunately, this residue causes more than just bad odor. If allowed to develop, residue inside of your machine will eventually clog its filters and tubes and cause it to malfunction. Well before your machine clogs or you even notice the signs of neglect, the stale residue lining the inside of your machine will begin to affect the taste of the fresh coffee you prepare.
Cleaning is the process of removing the coffee oils that will affect the taste that you want from your carefully selected coffee beans. Descaling is the process of removing the mineral build-up from the heating elements in the machine. Regular descaling will help extend the life of the machine and maintain consistent temperature.
Puro was developed for the independent professional barista. Each product was created with a technician’s knowledge of coffee equipment and an espresso lover’s enthusiasm for great taste.
Urnex acquired Puro Caff in 2005. Urnex always recognized Puro Caff as a high quality product, with a great formula and an extreme regional strength in the Pacific NW, the birthplace of Espresso in the US.
Puro and Cafiza are different formulas.
Commercial espresso machines should be cleaned by back flushing with espresso machine detergent each night. Nightly back flushing will prevent the accumulation of stale coffee oils in the group heads, shower screens and filter baskets of your espresso machine. Keeping these parts clean is essential to maintaining great tasting coffee over time. Weekly, you should soak portafilters and baskets in a solution of espresso machine detergent and water.
Commercial brewers should be cleaned each night after service. This will prevent the accumulation of stale coffee oils which can impact the taste of the next day's brews. Weekly, take off removable parts such as site glasses, etc. and give these a thorough cleaning as well. Finally, always remember to wipe down the area around the spray head (above the brew basket), as splashed- back coffee can accumulate there as well.
Cleaning your grinder is important in order to remove coffee oil residue from the grinding burrs which can contaminate the taste of future brews. Cleaning a grinder is a challenge because water cannot be used on the burrs or around electric motors. The process of opening or disassembling a grinder can also be intimidating due to the small parts and electric components inside the machine. Puro Grinder Tablets eliminates these concerns because it is as simple to use as grinding coffee. Simply grind the cleaning tablets through your grinder to remove coffee oil residue, ensuring great tasting coffee.
Dust may develop during grinding and is harmless. Wipe particles from hopper, spout, and doser. Keep Puro Grinder Cleaning Tablet container tightly closed and dry.
