Coffee is a naturally oily substance. These oils accumulate inside coffee pots after repeated use and, over time, cause beverages to taste bitter and unpleasant. If a machine is left alone without cleaning for long enough, coffee oil residue can cause clogging and blockages that render a machine unusable. Cleaning your coffee equipment with Urnex products helps to ensure proper hygiene, reliable performance, and a great tasting cup of coffee. Urnex offers a variety of cleaning formulations in tablet, liquid and powder form to suit the unique shapes, sizes and needs of coffee and espresso machines and the people who are operating them. 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 as splashed- back coffee can accumulate there as well. How often should I clean my commercial espresso machine? 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.
