Another favorite of ours, the Coffeetool, an unique three in one tool for performing daily espresso machine maintenance. On one end, there is a small measuring spoon. On the other end, there is a steel poker that you can use to unclog your steam tip. Last but not least, the brush for cleaning your group.
When your bristles get worn out, simply change the brush by unscrewing the old one and screw in a new one. No need to throw the whole brush out; just purchase a three pack of brushes, which will average out to be half the original cost of the Coffeetool. Also, the angle of the brush and deflecting fins are designed to prevent hot water from running down the brush handle while you are cleaning and burn your hand.
