Espazzola Group Head Cleaning Brush
The Espazzola is a professional tool for cleaning group-heads of espresso machines. It is mounted into the group-head like a portafilter and uses the hot water from the machine for a thorough and comprehensive removal of all coffee residues.
The idea is that you use regularly through day after each shot pulled to keep group heads spotlessly clean. Replaces the sue of a towel or other small brushes that are not as hygienic or thorough.
Instead of brushing out the group-head by hand, simply wash the dirt away. And that to the last corner!
WILL THE ESPAZZOLA FIT INTO MY MACHINE?
In the development of the Espazzola, great importance was placed on the fact that it can be used in group-heads with geometries as diverse as possible. Most professional and semi-professional machines are suitable for use with the Espazzola. To be sure, check the portafilter of your machine for these features:
CAMSThe portafilter must feature two (not three!) cams or 'ears'. The size, thickness and position of the cams generally is not important.
DIAMETERThe portafilter must have an open diameter between 57mm and 59mm. Often it is easier to check the diameter on the tamper: something between 56mm and 58mm is good!
