The brew unit is the heart of your espresso machine. Keeping it clean will not only ensures a superior coffee but ensures your machine will purr like a kitten (or drive like a Ferrari).
The brew unit not only needs to be cleaned, but well lubricated to ensure mechanical parts move smoothly:
- If you brew 1-5 coffees per day, lubricate every 4 months
- If you brew 6-10 coffees per day, lubricate every 2 months
- If you brew more than 10 coffees per day, lubricate once a month
ONLY USE FOOD SAFE LUBRICANT
In the course of cleaning your brew unit, it may become misaligned. Here is how to reset it so it can be reinserted into your machine effortlessly.
