Title (EN) REMOVAL OF COFFEE GROUNDS FROM A PORTAFILTER
(FR) ÉLIMINATION DE MARC DE CAFÉ D'UN PORTE-FILTRE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for use in cleaning a portafilter includes a portafilter receiver with a central opening. A landing area extends over at least a portion of the central opening. Spent grounds fall through a hole in the landing area when an inverted portafilter is positioned over the landing area during the cleaning process. Left and right retention members are spaced vertically above the landing area and portafilter receiving slots are defined between the retention members and the landing area. The receiving slots securely hold the portafilter above the landing area and center the cup portion of the portafilter over the hole. A receiving box is mounted below the portafilter receiver and receives the spent coffee grounds. A steam tube mounted to the receiving box connects to a pressurized steam supply and, when activated, directs pressurized steam through the hole of the landing area and into the cup portion of the inverted portafilter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil à utiliser dans le nettoyage d'un porte-filtre comprenant un récepteur de porte-filtre ayant une ouverture centrale. Une zone d'accueil s'étend sur au moins une partie de l'ouverture centrale. Le marc de café tombe à travers un trou dans la zone d'accueil lorsqu'un porte-filtre inversé est positionné sur la zone d'accueil pendant le processus de nettoyage. Des éléments de retenue gauche et droit sont espacés verticalement au-dessus de la zone d'accueil et des fentes de réception de porte-filtre sont délimitées entre les éléments de retenue et la zone d'accueil. Les fentes de réception maintiennent fermement le porte-filtre au-dessus de la zone d'accueil et centrent la partie coupelle du porte-filtre sur le trou. Une boîte de réception est montée au-dessous du récepteur de porte-filtre et reçoit le marc de café. Un tube de vapeur monté sur la boîte de réception se raccorde à une alimentation en vapeur sous pression et, lorsqu'il est activé, dirige la vapeur sous pression à travers le trou de la zone d'accueil et dans la partie coupelle du porte-filtre inversé.
