Cafetto and Clean Machine Premium Espresso Machine Powders have been developed for use with commercial & domestic espresso machines in the routine maintenance of back flushing 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 not a milk-scum cleaner, please refer to our liquid milk cleaner product for removing milk-scum from steam wands and milk jugs.
As our supplier sometimes runs out of Cafetto stock, we also offer the Clean Machine brand of espresso machine cleaning powder - it is not possible to specify at the time of order which brand will ship as both products are considered equivalent in functional performance and features.
