The Espazzola is a professional tool for cleaning the group-head of espresso machines - a perfect solution for every barista. The new version has been improved in many ways: now, there are more solid, stainless steel clams, the number of which can be changed as preferred; the new form of membrane adapts shower screens better and has a more secure grip; and there is less splashing, as the water is drained through a funnel.
The tool easily outworks traditional brushes. Portafilter-like form makes it easy to use: just mount it to the group-head, run hot water and rock Espazzola left and right 5-10 times.
The flexible membrane adapts to the group-head. All areas in this narrow and hot part are wiped off simultaneously - up to the sealing gasket and into the slot for the portafilter cams! The process only takes about 20 seconds. It is safe as well, without any big spills or burnt fingers.
Wondering if it fits your machine? Make sure the portafilter used in your machine features two cams and that the diameter of the shower is between 56 mm and 58 mm. If these conditions are met, it will fit perfectly.
To clean the Espazzola, just rinse it with clear water after use. If necessary, it can also be easily cleaned in the dishwasher (top shelf).
