I'm not quite sure if I fully understood your question. The consumer API
exposes a close() method that will shutdown the consumer's connections to
all brokers and frees up resources that the consumer uses.

I've updated the javadoc for the new consumer API to include a few examples
of different ways of using the consumer. Probably you might find it useful
