    Cleaning my espresso machine

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

    Well Im new to coffeesnobs and I would like to ask for some user advice. I have just purchased a Sunbeam Cafe Series EM6910 and I would like to know how often I should clean the shower screen area after making an espresso. I have been reading some articals and Im just getting a little confussed so I thought I would ask some people who are regulare users. Any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    Regards

    Depends on any number of factors...

    1 : I flush with water and jiggle my PF after I dump the puk - Every time.

    2: I do the shower screen manually about every 2 weeks

    3: I do a full clean with the SB Tabs about every 6 to 8 weeks...
