Product info


Did you know that your coffee machine might be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria? Truth is, the washer plate, the brewing chamber and the spout of your Nespresso® machine can become extremely dirty and possibly riddled with bacteria and germs.

The Caffenu® Nespresso® Original compatible cleaning capsule was specifically formulated with a unique foaming action to reach and effectively clean inaccessible areas of your Nespresso® Original coffee machine.

Its premium, yet eco-friendly ingredients clean parts of the machine that plain water or a descaler cannot reach, ensuring a spotless coffee spout. The result? A fresher and better tasting coffee free of germs. And a coffee machine that works like new, with better coffee flow and improved machine lifespan.

The tried and tested Caffenu® cleaning capsule is made up of eco-friendly ingredients, making it 100% natural and safe to use. The capsule is easy to use (just like a coffee capsule), and fully recyclable. It is intended to not only improve the flavour of your coffee, but also increase the lifespan & performance of Nespresso® Original coffee machines.

Ideally use after 30 cups of coffee made, or at least once a month. Also perfect for use when switching in between beverages such as tea, flavoured coffee or hot chocolate.

Why the Caffenu® cleaning capsule?

Your coffee capsule machine can be a hot spot for bacteria and old coffee oils. This is due to the heat and moisture created with each coffee brewed, and the coffee residue left behind in the brewing chamber thereafter.

Every time you make a coffee, it leaves a layer of oil behind in your machine. This can not only affect the taste of your coffee, but more importantly your health.

Please be aware that you cannot clean this area with usual cleaning methods such as hot water flushing or even descaling. That part of the brew chamber is very hard to reach and requires a unique foaming action to get into inaccessible parts of your coffee spout.

The Caffenu® cleaning capsule releases an advanced and eco-friendly foaming agent that rids your machine off all residue and germs in just 2 minutes. Cleaning is now as easy as making a cup of coffee.

Excellent product. We did the cycle twice as we hadn’t ever cleaned it previously – not with a cleaning capsule, that is!! – and it was well worth the effort. The coffee had begun to taste a little unpleasant and not enough water was coming through to make a decent cup of coffee but now it is excellent. Definitely recommend.

Machine compatibility

The Caffenu® cleaning capsule is compatible with all Nespresso® Original coffee machines at date of manufacture including:

Le Cube®
Delonghi Latissima®
Delonghi Latissima Touch®
Delonghi Latissima Pro®

U Milk®
Grand Maestria®


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® Original 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?

Running a Nespresso® compatible cleaning capsule and using the Eco descaler in your machine are two unique processes.

The cleaning capsule cleans the front area of your machine, flushing out old coffee oils and residue from the brewing chamber of your capsule machine.

The descaler, however, works only on the back area, removing limescale and calcium deposits from your machine’s internal components.
