Product info


Coffee capsule machines can easily become hot spots for bacteria growth and mould. In fact, each time you brew a coffee, heat and moisture develops inside the Nespresso® machine’s brewing chamber, and spout, making it attractive to bacteria. Furthermore, bacteria can feed off the coffee residue left after each brew.

Our Caffenu® Eco Nespresso® compatible cleaning capsule was carefully formulated with an exclusively eco-friendly foaming action to flush through and effectively clean inaccessible areas of your Nespresso® Original coffee machine.

Its premium, yet mild and eco-friendly ingredients access and clean the essential brewing areas like the brew chamber, machine spout, and nozzle. Unlike a descaler which works on the boiler and pipes, the capsule ensures that the machine is cleaned properly, to give you better tasting coffee free of old residue and germs.

The trusted Caffenu® Eco cleaning capsule is made of compostable capsules and a completely non-hazardous cleaning formula, making it 100% safe to use.

Ideally use after 30 cups made, or at least once a month. These cleaning capsules are also ideal for use when switching between beverages such as tea, flavoured coffee, or hot chocolate.

Why the Caffenu® Eco cleaning capsule?

Your Nespresso® Original machine’s brewing chamber, spout, and washer plate can become riddled with old coffee residue, and oil. This oil and residue build-up can cause an onset of bacteria growth when left uncleaned.

Each time you make a coffee, the residue and oil accumulate, ruining the taste of your fresh coffee. Failure to clean your coffee machine can affect the taste of your coffee, as well as the performance of the machine.

Unfortunately flushing your machine with hot water, not even descaling your machine, will reach the areas in the brew chamber. You need a detergent based cleaner that foams to remove oily residue and bacteria.

The Caffenu® Eco cleaning capsule pumps an advanced and eco-friendly foaming agent through the brew chamber, cleansing your Nespresso® Original machine of residue, oil, and bacteria in just 2 minutes. Cleaning could not be easier.

This capsule is not designed for the Nespresso® VertuoLine capsule system, and has not been tested in the Miele® built in and free standing machines.

The Caffenu® cleaning capsule will also work in any Nespresso® compatible machine, as well as any machines that can use either the Nespresso® Grand Crus range of capsules or any alternative capsule designed for that system.


What is the difference between cleaning and descaling?

The Eco formula cleaning capsule and Eco descaler each have an individual purpose. Firstly, the cleaning capsule targets the front part of your machine, removing old coffee oil and residue out of the brewing chamber.

However, the descaler works on the back parts of your capsule machine, removing limescale and calcium deposits from your machine’s internal components, such as the heating element and pipes.
