The innovative Espazzola is the perfect tool for easily cleaning the surface of an espresso machine group head before backflushing. The membrane acts as a cleaning brush and the body channels the water, away from your hands, through the centre, just like a portafilter. For group head diameters of 56 - 58 mm.

  • Method
  • The innovative Espazzola is the perfect tool for easily cleaning the surface of an espresso machine group head before backflushing. The Espazzola fits into the group head just like a portafilter, the flexible membrane acts as an effective cleaning brush that adapts to the shape of the group head! The body of the Espazzola channels the water down through the centre, keeping your hands safely away from the water flow. With just a little bit of movement, the group head will be clean in no time! 

    This is the 56-58mm size Espazzola. Please make sure the portafilter of your machine has two "ears" or "hooks" and an open diameter of 57 to 59 millimetres! Often it is easier to measure the diameter of the tamper: this should be between 56 and 58 millimetres!

Fast and thorough

This group head cleaner is faster and cleaner than my other ones. It cleans the whole surface, and the design makes sense. Cool that it has a cleaner for the steam wand as well. It was a bit non-intuitive to assemble but only took about 2 minutes with the help of the instructions.

It probably makes sense to only use these in high traffic settings, as it is not really that difficult/time-consuming to clean a group head at home. It probably was not necessary for my use case (a small, cheaper brush does the same job), but it still works well. Given the price, I hope it is durable.

Must Have Espresso Tool

Simple to use and super effective. Great for cleaning the group head at the end of the day or in the instance of a stuck puck. I do have a concern about how long the silicone cleaning head will last but I guess time will tell.
