Cafiza® Espresso Machine Cleaner - Powdered - 20oz Canister
Cafiza espresso machine cleaning powder is an integral part of the daily maintenance routine for commercial espresso machines. Specifically formulated for effective use in the back flush cleaning process of your commercial espresso machine, Cafiza is designed to combine maximum solubility and cleaning power with easy rinse-ability.

Cafiza is recommended for use with a wide-range of traditional commercial espresso machines and is NSF certified for metal compatibility and safety. Cafiza powder is not recommended for use in espresso machines that lack a back flush feature, such as home espresso makers.

Concentrated formula eliminates residue in group heads, valves, and lines
Removes stale, built-up coffee oils, colors, and odors
Formulated to balance foam and solubility for optimal rinsing

Ideal for use in your espresso machine's back flush cycle
Also cleans the exteriors of coffee brewing and roasting equipment


Instructions for Use


To Clean Commercial Espresso Machines

Back Flush Process (for each group head):
Insert blind filter in porta-filter
Add up to 1/2 teaspoon (3g) of Cafiza Powder
Insert porta-filter into group head

Activate brew cycle for 10 seconds
Stop for 10 seconds to allow cleaner to work
Repeat this brew / pause process 5 times

Remove porta-filter and activate brew cycle again
Rinse the porta-filter in stream of water from group head
Stop the brew cycle when porta-filter is sufficiently rinsed

Insert porta-filter back into group head
Rinse by brewing for 10 seconds, pausing for 10 seconds
Repeat this rinse cycle 5 times without Cafiza powder
Then, make and discard a cup of espresso to ensure no residue remains

Soak Porta-Filters:
Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon (3g) Cafiza powder in 64oz (2L) water
Soak filters and metal part of porta-filter in this solution for 30 minutes
After soaking, rinse all parts thoroughly with clean, hot water



To Clean Coffee Brewing Vessels and Filter Baskets

Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon (3g) Cafiza powder directly into filter basket
Run a full brew cycle into your vessel (coffee pot, airpot, etc.)
The water will dissolve the powder in your filter basket

Allow resulting solution to soak up to 30 minutes
Empty vessel and rinse all parts with clean, hot water

TIP: Before discarding Cafiza solution, wet a cloth with the Cafiza solution and wipe down spray heads. Then, wipe the spray heads clean with a new cloth. Do NOT use Cafiza inside the coffee maker itself.



To Clean Coffee Roasting Equipment

Roasted Coffee Storage Bins:
In a large sink or laundry tub, mix up a solution of 50 parts hot water to 1 part Cafiza Espresso Machine Cleaner Powder. Dip your dirty storage containers into the solution for several minutes, opening and closing any lids or dispense mechanisms. Remove bins from cleaning solution and dip in a tub of clean water to rinse. Use clean, warm running water for final rinse. Air-dry or wipe with a clean cloth.

Removable Coffee Roaster Parts:
In a large sink or laundry tub, mix up a solution of 30 parts hot water to 1 part Cafiza Espresso Machine Cleaner Powder. Remove any parts from your roaster that can be cleaned by dipping or soaking. Allow these parts to soak in the prepared Cafiza cleaning solution for several minutes. Remove parts from cleaning solution and dip in a tub of clean water to rinse. Use clean, warm running water for final rinse. Dry and inspect all parts.

Non-Removable Coffee Roaster Parts:
Mix four (4) tablespoons of Cafiza powder in 1 quart of hot water in a spray bottle. Mist parts heavily with solution and wipe clean. Some parts may require more than one application. Wipe surfaces cleaned with Cafiza down with a damp cloth, then dry with another cloth.

Coffee Bagging Equipment:
Mix four (4) tablespoons of Cafiza powder in 1 quart of hot water in a spray bottle. Mist hoppers, spouts, and any coffee contact surfaces thoroughly with solution. Wipe surfaces clean with sponge. Keep sponge clean by rinsing periodically in clean water.

*NOTE: Always follow manufacturer's cleaning, disassembly, and maintenance instructions. All mix ratios may be modified if a stronger cleaning solution is desired. For comfort and safety, use rubber gloves and eye protection while cleaning with Cafiza powder.

Yep, Cafiza Works
Cafiza gets the old coffee oil out so the coffee tastes fresh and not bitter. If you have waited a long time to backwash your machine, as I did (several years) it takes a while to get the gunk rinsed out. I was losing pressure in the water flow. This fixed it. A very good idea for making your machine last a long time.
