Espresso Parts' Urnex Puro Espresso Machine Cleaner handles the dirty work of backflushing your espresso machine by removing the residual build-up of coffee solids and oils from screens, valves, and tubes of brewing groups. Daily backflushing after last use will ensure quality espresso can be pulled day after day. 

Backflush following the directions on the label, and soak the portafilters (just the metal, not the Handles!) in a solution of hot water and Puro.

Thoroughly rinse groups and portafilters after cleaning. Never backflush with Puro then close down for the day. A "clean water" backflush is always the last step.

At the beginning of a new day, always re-season your machine and portafilters by brewing and discarding one espresso per group.

For Backflushing (each group head)

  1. Remove brew basket from portafilter, then insert the backflush disc. Spoon out 1/2 tsp (3 g) of Puro Powder. Insert portafilter into group head.
  2. Activate the brew cycle for 10 seconds. Stop 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times. * Alternatively, you may have an auto-clean cycle.
  3. Remove portafilter from grouphead. Activate brew button to rinse portafilter in a stream of water from the grouphead. Stop cycle.
  4. Reinsert portafilter into grouphead. Repeat step (2) without Puro Powder 5 times aka "Clean Water" backflush

For Soaking

  1. Soak portafilter baskets and metal for 30 min. in 1 tsp (6 g) of Puro Powder per 32 oz. (1 L) of hot water.
  2. Rinse with clean hot water.

For Use on Coffee Brewers

  1. Empty coffee from airpot / urn. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp (3g) of Puro powder per 64 oz. (2L) of brewer capacity directly into the brew basket.
  2. Run a full brew cycle into each vessel and hold for 30 min.
  3. Empty each vessel and rinse all parts with clean hot water.

TIP: Wet cloth with Puro solution and wipe down spray heads, then wipe clean.
