Cleaning your Nespresso machine has never been easier, with the easy-to-use Caffenu cleaning capsules. These cleaning capsules perform the essential task of cleaning and removing old coffee, residue, and oils from your Nespresso machine. What’s incredible, is that you can clean your Nespresso machine the eco-friendly way. Find out more about Nespresso cleaning capsules and how you can use them in your machine, with our informative instruction video.

Each time a coffee or hot drink is brewed in your coffee capsule machine, old coffee and residue accumulates. Furthermore, a combination of the build-up and moisture makes it attractive for bacteria to colonise in and around the brewing chamber.

Thankfully, Caffenu offers two different cleaning capsules for your Nespresso machine, with each one boasting its own unique cleaning formula. Learn about the Caffenu ‘Original Formula’ and ‘Eco Formula’ cleaning capsules. You can’t go wrong with these capsules, as they both effectively rid your machine of unwanted build-up and bacteria with a powerful foaming agent.

Additionally, the Caffenu cleaning capsules are fully compatible with all Nespresso Original Line capsule machines, but not Vertuo machines.

Try a Caffenu cleaning capsule and witness the formula in action! Watch the video below and learn how to effectively clean your Nespresso machine the eco-friendly way.

Moreover, it is important to note that descaling is also essential in maintaining your Nespresso machine!

Cleaning a coffee machine is vital for its performance and lifespan, as well as the quality of coffee it brews. We have previously posted about cleaning a Nespresso® Original machine and how you can do it. If you however own a Nespresso® Vertuo® machine, you might still be asking yourself how to clean it? Worry not, we are going to discuss Nespresso® Vertuo® Cleaning vs Nespresso® Original Cleaning.

Nespresso® Vertuo® Cleaning

Right now there is not many cleaning products available on the market for the Nespresso® Vertuo® aside from a descaler for limescale prevention/removal. The machine does however have a rinsing cycle “feature”, which flushes water out the machine. This flush cycle however lacks the required foaming action to remove hardened coffee oils and tannins. Until a cleaning capsule is available for the Vertuo® system, the water only flush cycle will unfortunately be your only option to flush out your machine.

You should also clean the externals of the machine with a soft, damp cloth and soak the drip tray, capsule basket, and water tank. Using the descaler will also ensure you prevent limescale and mineral build-up, keeping your machine in good working order to brew hot coffee.

Nespresso® Original Cleaning

Nespresso® Original capsule machines have a more intensive cleaning solution available. Original machines such as the Nespresso® Essenza®, Inissia® etc., have a convenient and easy-to-use cleaning capsule at hand.

The cleaning capsule has a unique foaming action which penetrates inaccessible parts of these machines, flushing out coffee residues and oils. This cleaning helps keep the machine working properly, bacteria away, and most importantly, your coffee fresh.

Like any other coffee machine, these machines also have to be descaled, keeping the limescale and mineral build-up at bay. The Nespresso® Original can easily be descaled without too many steps to follow, but always be sure to follow the usage instructions from both your machine manufacturer and the descaler instructions.

If you are in need of a cleaning routine for your Nespresso® Original machine, then you will find the best spring cleaning routine here. It will take you less than 5 minutes to enjoy a perfectly fresh cup of coffee!

Hopefully you now have a better understanding of Nespresso® Vertuo® cleaning vs Nespresso® Original cleaning! If not, contact us and we will be happy to assist.

Caffenu® has two choices when it comes to the Nespresso® compatible Cleaning Capsule range; our Original Formula Capsule and also an Eco Formula cleaning capsule for Nespresso® coffee machines. Now you might wonder what the difference between the two is?

There are a few slight differences; the most notable difference being that the Eco Formula cleaning capsule is completely non-hazardous. Below is a list of the main differences between the Original Formula and Eco Formula cleaning capsule.

  1. Hazard Classification

As mentioned, the main difference between the Original and the Eco formulation is that the Eco Formula is completely non-hazardous. But what does this mean? Depending on the concentration of certain ingredients inside cleaning formulas, products are allocated to a certain hazard category. This is an international standard and serves to make the products safe for consumers to use. Thus, making them aware about potential hazards when using them.

The Eco formula has a very low concentration of certain ingredients hence it is classified as non-hazardous. The Original formula, however has a higher concentration of certain ingredients, it is classified as the lowest form of a Hazard, an Eye irritant Class 2. However, it’s unlikely for the product to come into contact with your eyes, as the formula is sealed inside the capsule. Furthermore, the capsule inserts directly into your coffee machine, making it a safe and convenient product to use at home.

  1. Strength

Because of the higher concentration of active ingredients, the Original formula is stronger and slightly more effective than the Eco product. However, while the Eco formula is milder, it is still very effective, especially for domestic applications and without a doubt the perfect tool to clean your Nespresso® coffee machine at home.

  1. Ingredients

As mentioned above, the Original formula is stronger. That is in part due to two main ingredients: One being sodium percarbonate – which is a non-chlorine-based, oxygen-based bleaching agent and two being sodium carbonate. These products by themselves are quite strong and both are responsible for giving the Original Formula its “Hazardous” classification. The Eco formula consists of natural and readily biodegradable materials. It also has a lower concentration of active ingredients, hence the mildness of the product.

  1. Environmental friendliness

Both products are very eco-friendly, as both use readily biodegradable surfactants, organic materials, and minerals. Neither product contains chlorine or phosphates. The Original formula contains sodium percarbonate. This ingredient must break down into the natural components it’s made from, so it takes more time to break down. Apart from the eco-friendliness of the actual ingredients, there is also a difference on the capsule form between Original and Eco. The Original capsules are 100% recyclable whereas the Eco Cleaning Capsules now come in fully compostable capsules.

Original vs Eco: The choice is yours! No matter if you choose Original or Eco, you can be sure that your coffee machine will be well looked after, giving you fresher coffee one clean at a time!
