Hey guys, I was wondering if y'all could take a look at this photo and tell me where I could find a similar cleaning brush? It came with my Capresso Infinity, and really fits the machine and the grounds chute perfectly. The bristles are very thick and used to be straight..but...obviously they have worn over time! It's slightly over 3" long. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I think it looks like the brush that comes with a beard and mustache trimmer. Click Here (www.amazon.com)

I also have seen those bristles on a combo coffee scoop/cleaning brush implement, but you'd have to cut it down to make it fit perfectly as you describe. Click Here (www.thegourmetdepotco.com)

I tried some google product searching and couldn't find a brush alone.  I stopped looking once the price went over the trimmer price.  Harbor Freight specializes in, well, cheap miscellaneous crap; maybe that's a worthwhile place to look, too.

On second thought, maybe Capresso could send you a replacement for a few dollars.

I use this little flux brush. The basket is to show size.  They are dirt cheap and can be had where they sell welding supplies.

I use these. The pack should last quite a while.

I have those as well and they are good for pushing the beans into the burrs, then brushing out that part of the machine. They are a bit long to get into the grounds chute via the doser chamber.  I was about to cut one off to fit but then found the little ones.
