    Breville Barista Express - Backflushing

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone,

    I've had the Barista Express for a couple of months now and am pretty happy with it. However, i'm a little confused about backflushing. Does the cleaning cycle that Breville outlines in the instructions actually do a backflush, or do I need to do my own backflushing process?

    Thanks in advance

    The cleaning cycle with the tablet should be done around once a week, backsliding with the rubber disc but no tablet should be done after every coffee making session.

    Thanks mate. I've not been doing that. Can I use cafiza or alternative, instead of the tablet? Breville have a nasty habit of charging $$ for their own branded accessories.

    ("Backsliding" in my comment above should be "backflushing"as I assume you figured out). I use Cafetto on my BES920, with a try and see how it goes. Where are you located? I can post you a bit to try if you like?
