In order to get the most out of your automatic espresso machine, you should regularly clean the brew unit. As with home coffee brewers, oils and residue left behind can cause bitter tasting coffee and clog your coffee output.

  • Cafiza® Tablets are easy to use – follow your machine guide for specifics on where to insert the tablet on your model.
  • Each 2 gram tablet is sized for use on a wide range of different machines.
  • NSF certified for metal compatibility and safety.
  • Packaged on a convenient blister card with 8 cleanings per carton.


For use on Automatic Espresso Machines

If the machine has a cleaning program:

  1. Insert one Cafiza® Home Tablet in specified machine opening and follow manufacturer's "Maintenance and Cleaning" instructions for the machine’s cleaning cycle.

If the machine does not have a programmed cleaning cycle, but has a pre-ground coffee or bypass chute:

  1. Put one Cafiza® Home tablet in the pre-ground coffee chute and place a cup under the coffee spout.
  2. Press the button corresponding to brewing with pre-ground coffee.
  3. When half a cup of water has been discharged, switch the appliance off for 5 minutes to let the solution take effect inside of the machine.
  4. Switch the appliance back on again to end the cycle.
  5. Repeat this cycle a minimum of 3 additional times to rinse, but do not add additional tablets to the machine (to ensure that all cleaning solution has come out the machine).
  6. Remove the coffee dispensing unit and rinse it carefully using clean water.
  7. Before using the appliance again, prepare two cups of coffee, by pressing the button corresponding to brewing with pre-ground coffee, but without adding any coffee, and then throw them away.
  8. To clean the drip tray, place a Cafiza® Home tablet inside, and fill it up 2/3 full with hot water. Let the cleaning solution take effect for about 30 minutes, then rinse abundantly.

If the machine does not have a pre-ground coffee chute:

  1. Place one Cafiza® Home tablet in a cup and fill it with hot water.
  2. Remove the coffee dispensing unit and clean the filters and the dispensing channel with the prepared cleaning solution.
  3. Let the solution take effect for at least five minutes and repeat this operation a minimum of three times.
  4. Rinse the coffee dispensing unit abundantly with clean water and install it again.
  5. To clean the drip tray, place a Cafiza® Home tablet inside and fill it up to 2/3 full with hot water. Let the cleaning solution take effect for about 30 minutes and rinse abundantly.


Why use Cafiza® Tablets?
Oil and residue left behind in an automatic espresso machine can lead to bitter tasting coffee. To get the freshest tasting coffee, it is important to clean your machine regularly. Cafiza® Tablets are specially formulated for controlled solubility, easy rinsing, and powerful cleaning while maintaining the inner workings of your machine.

How often should I clean my espresso machine?
We recommend cleaning your machine at least once a month.  This frequency may depend on how often you are using the machine, as well as how often the machine manufacturer recommends cleaning – each machine is different.

Can I eat or drink this product?
Cafiza® is an alkaline based cleaner.  Much like any automatic dishwashing detergent, countertop cleaner, or other kitchen cleaner, this product is not intended to be consumed. It is a chemical designed to perform a function and when used according to directions and rinsed properly there is no risk of consumption of the product.
