In Which Red Rock Talks Dirty
Benjamin brought these filthy portafilters back from an anonymous customer. We all oohed and ahhed over how disgusting they were, and then we mixed an ounce packet of Urnex Original Brewer Cleaner (NSF Certified and Organic compliant!) with about a quart of hot water and let them soak for an hour and a half. Then we scrubbed a bit.
Cleaning your equipment is easy, and it's super important! These portafilters smelled like rancid French fries!
