• Blind Basket Blank Cleaning Disc

Blind Portafilter basket.

A blind basket used to hold coffee machine cleaner (tablets, powered or liquid) in the portafilter instead of the normal filter basket.

When the coffee switch is operated, the hot water enters the blind basket and mixes with the cleaner and typically foams up.  This expansion pushes the foam into the screen of the machine where the cleaner dissolves coffee residues and loosens accumulations of coffee grinds.

Machines with a solenoid attached to the group head vent excess pressure in the basket when the coffee switch is turned off.  Normally after you complete a shot, this vents excess pressure above the puck into the drain tray, so that you don't become covered in in spray when the handle is removed from the machine.

When used with the blind basket and cleaner, turning off the coffee switch allows the cleaner to forced back through the screen and out through the solenoid, deep cleaning the internals of the machine.

Most often used with Puly Caff cleaner, which is available in tablet form, or powder.  We recommend 1 teaspoon of powder or a 1g or 1.35g tablet.  Always follow the instructions provided with the cleaner.
