Shower screen after pulling a shot

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

Wondering what others do to their shower screens after pulling a shot. I'm in the habit of a quick flush of water (used to rinse the portafilter too), but then I also tend to give the group screen a quick wipe with the bar towel. Does anybody else wipe as well as flush, if I'm honest I don't see many pro baristas do that (nor flush out the portafilter for that matter). Just curious what others do.

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Flushing and wiping the screen will not clean the fines that get to the back of the screen. Remove the screen and clean it separately.

I understand that, Bolta, but that's a maintenance thing, not something anybody would do after every shot.

Quick flush of water after every shot.

 

Water spray and longer flush at end of day.

 

Espazzola group cleaner once a week.

 

Remove screen and thorough clean once a month.

I use an Espazola thing nearly all the time as coffee gets everywhere. backflush every few days or so. Took the showerscreen out yesterday and it's clean as a whistle.

Thanks all. Never heard of the Espazola but will spring for one I think. I assume that it will fit in the Heavenly E61 group?

Should do, they are useful tools and work really well - but if you have a machine you can back flush you will still need to do that.

So do the Pallo brush, which are a fraction of the cost and lasts 50 times longer.
