Product info


All espresso coffee machines, domestic and commercial, manual, and semi-automatic, require routine maintenance. This is due to the coffee oils and residue that accumulate in a machine’s group heads, lines, and valves. Furthermore, failure to clear a machine of these oils and residues gradually leads to machine malfunction and poor-tasting coffee.

The Caffenu® espresso machine cleaning powder is meticulously formulated with powerful, yet eco-friendly ingredients. We have full confidence in this certified, concentrated, and fast-acting espresso machine cleaning powder.

The phosphate and chlorine-free cleaning powder effectively removes old coffee oils, build-up, and bitter tannins from your group heads, lines, and valves. The result? A fresher and better-tasting coffee, free of old coffee and germs. Also, you have a coffee machine that works like new, and a perfect tasting coffee.

Additionally, it’s ideal to soak removable espresso machine parts like portafilters, filter baskets, and shower screens, in the cleaning powder solution.

Why the Caffenu® cleaning powder?

Coffee oils and particles collect in the group head of your machine every time you brew an espresso. These particles can also build up in the machine’s valves and piping. Failure to clean an espresso machine will likely lead to malfunction, and ultimately, an expensive repair.

Another reason why cleaning is important, is the taste of the coffee; the oil and particle build-up retains the unpleasant taste of the old coffee. Further, foul smells tend to accompany the taste dispensed from the machine.

Be advised that whether you are using an espresso machine at home or in a coffee shop, it is essential to incorporate a cleaning routine in the use of your machine. This will ensure your machine performs as it should, and even increase the lifespan of your equipment.

The Caffenu® espresso machine cleaning powder is the go-to cleaning product that safeguards your machine against breakdown and bad-tasting coffee.
