Product info

Info

Commercial Espresso coffee machines need frequent cleaning and maintenance. This is evident when a machine is continuously running, collecting coffee oil and residue. Due to coffee being a naturally oily substance, oil and residue rapidly accumulate, leading to bad smells and taste.

The Caffenu® cleaning tablets are designed to remove old coffee grease and oils, residue, odours, and tannins that accumulate inside brewing units, pots, and filters. Its tough degreasing agent cleans coffee machines like no water or descaler solution can.

Eliminate all unwanted grease and coffee residue from your espresso, bean to cup, fully automatic, and filter coffee machines in just a few minutes.

Why the Caffenu® cleaning tablet?

Coffee residue and oil collects in parts of espresso coffee machines that badly influence the quality and taste of a “fresh” cup of coffee. For instance, the group head of an espresso coffee machine, can get seriously blocked and tainted by old coffee oils left behind.

It is therefore important to have a cleaning and maintenance routine for your coffee machine. Especially when the machine is continuously brewing, such as in a commercial coffee shop environment or an office. Frequent cleaning will maintain, and even increase the lifespan of your coffee machine and equipment, contributing to many perfect cups of coffee.

The Caffenu® coffee machine cleaning tablet is the ideal solution to take care of your coffee machine. The concentrated and fast-acting tablet removes dirty coffee oils, residues and tannins; eliminating all the unwanted build-ups that affect the taste and quality of coffee.
