Cafetto and Clean Machine Premium Espresso Machine Powders have been developed for use with commercial & domestic espresso machines in the routine maintenance of backflushing and the removal of coffee oil residue and scum on group heads, valves, lines and associated parts.
We recommend that chemical cleaning occurs not more than once a week in a domestic situation.
For commercial cafes, cleaning cycles depend upon the volume of coffee being produced on the equipment and in most cases a good once a week clean is adequate.
PLEASE NOTE: Espresso cleaner is a detergent designed to break down rancid coffee oils that adhere to the espresso machine group area (and portafilter handle, basket, etc.).
It is not a boiler descaling solution so please do not use Espresso cleaner to de-scale your boiler - please refer to our Dezcal product for descaling boilers and steam lines.
It is also not a milk-scum cleaner, please refer to our liquid milk cleaner product for removing milk-scum from steam wands and milk jugs.
Please note, we stock the Cafetto branded cleaner and as the exterior label artwork has recently changed on this product, you may notice a change between the appearance of the previous product or what you have become accustomed in the past to seeing in terms of the label on the jar. Don't worry, the ingredients have not changed, it's just cafetto updating and refreshing the product branding.
