Without proper care and maintenance, the lives of espresso machines and grinders can be shortened significantly. Coffee oils build up overtime, clinging especially to shower screens, filter baskets, portafilters, steam wands, and grinder internals. On top of that, residual oils on your equipment can emulsify and leach to new coffee oils, causing rancid flavors to enter into your next cup.

However, with a regular cleaning routine in place, the cleaning process is quite painless and substantial. With the Urnex Espresso Starter Kit, you get everything you need to maintain your espresso brewing situation, including Cafiza (detergent for espresso machines and accessories, as well as batch brewers), Grindz (tablets for cleaning grinders), Rinza (tablets for cleaning steam wands and milk pitchers), and even a grouphead cleaning brush.
