Designed especially for use with espresso machines, Urnex 12-ESP12-20 20 oz.

For back flush cleaning, insert a blind filter in a porta-filter and add up to 1/2 tsp. of Cafiza powder. Activate the brew cycle for ten seconds, stop for ten seconds, and repeat 5 times. Remove the porta-filter and activate the brew cycle. Rinse porta-filter in the stream of water from the group head. Stop cycle. Re-insert the porta-filter then start and stop the brew cycle in ten second intervals, five times. Make and discard a cup of espresso to ensure no residue remains. For soaking, place filters and metal parts of porta-filters in a solution of 1 tsp. of Cafiza powder per 32 oz. of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes. Rinse with clean, hot water.
