Cleaning versus Descaling: what is the difference?
Using a cleaning capsule or using a liquid descaler are two very different things!
Both products clean completely different parts on your machine.
The Caffenu® cleaning capsule cleans the front part of your coffee machine, the brewing chamber which consists of the capsule chamber, washer plate, nozzle, and spout.
This is where your coffee is brewed and passes through. The capsule releases a powerful foaming agent that cleans inaccessible areas, getting rid of old coffee oils, build-up and bacteria in just 2 minutes.
A descaler does not have the foaming power to remove residues and oils out of the brewing chamber. So flushing your machine with water or descaling alone is not enough.
Caffenu® cleaning capsules are available for the Nespresso® system but also as a Multipod for Caffitaly®, K-Fee®, Verismo®, Expressi® and Tchibo® Cafissimo®, as well as for Lavazza® A Modo Mio® coffee machines.
The descaling solution enters the system through the back part, the water tank of the machine. The descaler breaks down calcium and lime scale deposits on the internal parts of the machine, such as the pipes, pump and boiler.
Descaling ensures the hygiene of your machine’s internal components.
Our Caffenu® Eco Descaler is suitable for all coffee machines, kettles & urns.
