Rowan Isaacman, Inventor of the Caffenu Cleaning Capsule

Caffenu® is the brain child of Rowan Isaacman, based and run in the mother city of Cape Town, South Africa.

Coming from a technical background and being one of the founding members in Café Caps as one of the first Nespresso® compatible capsule manufacturers in the world, Rowan has been in the capsule industry since 2010.

Rowan started his own coffee machine and capsule supply company, and has pulled apart and dealt with more coffee machines than most people have had hot breakfasts. One of the biggest problems he saw from his own Nespresso® compatible coffee machines and customers with Nespresso® machines, was the state of the brewing chambers and the amount of build-up inside the machines. “Most of the time, all the machines needed was a good thorough cleaning to get them back up and running. You can´t believe some of the mess I have seen in the brewing chambers of these machines,” says Rowan.

That is the reason why he initially developed the Caffenu® cleaning capsule. After long trials and research of different compositions and methods to clean his own Nespresso® and compatible coffee machines, he found the easiest way to keep them in top notch running condition: a cleaning capsule. The Caffenu® cleaning capsule has a unique technology, construction and amazing cleaning compound with powerful foaming and degreasing abilities, that at a press of a button removes all residue that has built up inside your coffee machine.

The cleaning capsule has shown amazing results in maintaining the machines, and keeping them operating like NU again. At the same time, regular cleaning of the brewing chamber with the capsule makes sure that you get a pure coffee flavour and aroma – everytime.
