  • Description
  • Specs
  • 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!

Great Brush

Just about the best group head cleaner you can purchase. Highly recommended.

What a clever little tool this is. Works a charm for regular cleaning in our Rancilio Lucy.

An effective and efficient grouphead surface cleaner

The Espazzola group head cleaner cleans the surface of the groupheads on our Elektra machines more quickly and completely than the brushes we previously used and in less time with less mess. Although a bit fidgety to lock into the grouphead, once on, cleaning simply involves twisting the handle back and forth gently while the water is running. What we are waiting to see (and hope to provide an update on in due course) is the longevity of the silicone cleaning head.

Great little cleaner

I love this little cleaning tool. The odd time I get a puck that sticks and this makes clean up a breeze.

GREAT CLEANING TOOL

I've had a cleaning brush for the group as well, and this just makes it painless. It's a little pricey, but I haven't found anything that does as good a job at cleaning the group. I use it every few days with some water running through the group and it keeps it spotless.
