During use espresso machines build up tannin in the group head. The deposits form a coat of bitter and unhygienic tannin. Dried up tannin on the machines internals cause issues.
Failure to backflush will result in bitter tasting espresso shots. As well as coffee aroma.
Puly cleaning powder will break down tannin. The powder works best when used with a Blindy basket. Also known as a back flushing basket. The basket does not have any holes.
Powder is placed into the Blindy basket. the powder expands and cleanses the machine internals. The solution comes out of the exhaust valve into the drip tray.
After a number of flushes the solution runs clear. Repeat the process with normal water. This will help to clear the remaining cleaner from the espresso machine.
Back flushing should be performed at least once a week. For a busy commercial machine, flush once a day.
It is a good idea to also flush with water at the beginning of every day. This helps to keep things clean. It also helps to warm up the pipe work up too.
This can also be used on domestic models with a 3-way group valve. Machines such as the Gaggia Classic and the Gaggia Baby. See the guide on ‘how to backflush’ on happybloggy.co.uk
