For fast and effective cleaning of your coffee grinder from coffee oils and other residues. The Grindz coffee grinder cleaner consists of white-yellowish granules, which are slightly reminiscent of coffee beans. Grindz Coffee Grinder Cleaner is odorless and tasteless and does not affect the taste of the ground or freshly brewed coffee in any way. The gentle cleaning beans also consist of natural products such as grains and cereals and pharmaceutical grade, harmless binding agents.
We recommend carrying out the cleaning process once a month. This will significantly increase the performance and lifetime of your grinder.
Cleaning instructions: First, empty the coffee grinder completely. Place a cap with about 35g of Grindz in the grinding funnel. Grind the grounds completely at medium grinding speed. Finally, grind one flap with coffee beans twice in succession according to the known pattern and pour away.
