    Interesting, but a bit pricey. I'll take a pass.

      Have seen this mentioned and yep a bit pricey for me compared to my trusty pallo brush. But if it cleans as well as it claims to then a small investment overall.

        Good grief.

          I've seen a few clips of these in use online and they look awesome. Probably overkill for at home, but just like lots of other toys I'm sure there'll be more than a few bought by home users. An great tool for a commercial setting though.

            I bought one from the supplier OS a while back. Really quick easy way to clean the group on my lines mini and seems to do a better job for me than a brush alone.

              For me, the true test of whether a product is a keeper is whether it still gets used after the novelty factor has worn off....and whether it either stays out, gets 'moved-on' or is stored somewhere.

              This is one of those "You gotta try it to realize how good it is"-type gizmos.

              I have had one for several months and it gets used every day. It does too good a job to NOT use it.

                  Cleanliness is next to godliness.
                  No price too high.

                    Hmmmm, once again I'm the voice of dissent.

                    Whist this device may well clean up the area under the group head it wont clean the associated plumbing and brew pressure relief valve.

                    A water backflush after every session along with a weekly detergent backflush keeps the brew head area and plumbing spotless.

                    The device mentioned may well do a good job of cleaning the easily accessible and visible areas beneath the brew head, however it does nothing about the important hidden areas that after a while become heavily contaminated with coffee residue, bit like sweeping the floor and ignoring the dust under the mat.

                    Cafetto EVO from Coffeeparts is the backflush product I use Cafetto Evo® Espresso Machine Cleaner at about $15 for 500 grams its inexpensive, used at approx.half a teaspoon per backflush 500 grams will last for ages.

                      Interesting new gadget from Coffee Parts...

                      Been wondering when there would be some AU resellers.

                      If you see a video of it it action you'll get to see how it improves on the portafilter wiggle + pallo brush combo. It's not a replacement for back flushing or other regular chemical cleaning.

                      It helps ensure cleaner shot to shot brews.

                      Imaging it being particularly useful in a commercial situation to give thorough clean of shower screen and rim in a fairly quick and easy to use way. Over simply post shot purge.

                      Seems quite efficient.

                      I'd be interested to know how long the little silicone cleaning membranes last for.

                        Thanks JavaPhile, not sure what happened, working from a borrowed laptop.

                          Yes I would hope no one would substitute regular backflushing for using this. They should be complimentary.

                            Pretty sure that the manufacturer of this device makes NO claims that it is a substitute for Back-flushing...

                              Agree Mal, it looks pretty good to me as a supplement to backflushing. Price is high though, would definitely consider getting one at a lower price point.
                              Maybe a chromed brass version with a blind basket insert 😄😉
