Info

These Caffenu® Universal coffee machine cleaning tablets are the ultimate solution to maintaining dirty bean to cup, fully automatic, espresso, and filter coffee machines.

Bean to cup, fully automatic, espresso, and filter coffee machines need regular cleaning and maintenance. This is because of the oils and residue that build up in these machines, due to coffee being a naturally oily substance. The problem with this is that the build-up becomes stale, leading to bad tastes and smells lingering in the machine.

That is why the Caffenu® Universal cleaning tablets were made. They effectively remove old coffee grease, residue, odours, and tannins that accumulate inside brewing units, pots, and filters. Its powerful degreasing agent cleans coffee appliances like no water or descaler solution can.

Remove all unwanted grease and coffee residue from bean to cup, fully automatic, espresso, and filter coffee machines with total ease, in just a few minutes.

Why the Caffenu® cleaning tablet?

Old coffee residue and grease accumulate in crucial parts of coffee machines, leading to both foul-smelling and tasting coffee. Furthermore, neglecting to clean your coffee machine can lead to bacteria and mould build-up. All of this put together can not only lead to machine malfunction, but also potential health issues.

Therefore it is important to have a cleaning and maintenance routine for your coffee machine. Doing so will maintain, and even increase the lifespan of your coffee machine and equipment, contributing to the perfect cup of coffee.

Caffenu® Universal coffee machine cleaning tablets are the perfect remedy to take care of your coffee machine. Its concentrated and fast-acting tablet removes dirty coffee oils, residues and tannins that collect inside brewing units, pots, and filters.

Includes 10 tablets, enough for 10 cleans.

What is the difference between cleaning and descaling?

If your coffee machine has a water tank, don’t forget to also descale your machine. The cleaning tablet only works inside the brew unit of your fully automatic bean to cup coffee machine. You need a descaling liquid to remove limescale, minerals and rust from the pipes, boiler and thermoblock of your machine.
