Thanks for the excellent post and video. I'll be showing the video and giving soap a try for training at my cafe!

Been trying the soapy water and instant coffee method. Works somewhat, but boy it tastes terrible. I don't know how you guys can stand it. I'm going back to milk and espresso for my cappas. :mrgreen:

Instant coffee, yuck. You need to use good quality coffee from a reputable roaster, freshly roasted and fresh ground. Personally, I find "skim" detergents repulsive. Try 2% or "whole" dish soap, and I think you'll be impressed with the difference. :lol:

For me, the biggest difference was definitely switching to organic detergent. 7th Generation is good, if you can get it. :wink:

So that what that crap is for? I bought a case of it and now I can finally use it! Maybe I won't need a cleansing fast any more. Like getting a coffee enema and a clearing flush all from the same origin. :mrgreen:
