Urnex: How to Clean an Espresso Machine Using Cafiza

Hi, I’m Jefferson, I’ve been a barista at Coffee Labs Roasters in Tarrytown for 7 years. Today I’m going to be showing you how to clean your espresso machine using Urnex products. First, replace the pour filter basket with a blind filter. Add about 3 grams of Cafiza espresso machine cleaning powder into the blind filter basket, or, add one Cafiza tablet into the blind filter basket, and return the pour filter back to the group head. Press and hold the wash button to active the clean cycle, also known as back flushing. Select which group to clean, then press start to begin. The cleaning process will continue on its own. It is a substantial cleaning cycle that takes place automatically, with the machine pumping the cleaning solution back through the machine every few seconds. To clear the espresso machine manually, simply run the espresso machine 10 seconds on, and 10 seconds off 5 times to pump the cleaning solution through the machine. To rinse, repeat the same steps of the cleaning cycle without any cleaning solution to rinse the machine with water. In addition to back flushing, soak any spare parts in a Cafiza solution. Dissolve 3 grams of Cafiza powder or 1 Cafiza tablet in water. We’ll quickly remove the shower screen. It’s hot, so be safe and use a bar towel. Soak for 15-30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water. It is important to clean the steam wand daily to prevent bacteria and protein build-up from the milk. Use 30 ml of Rinza and 500 ml of water. Soak for 15-30 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly with water. Your espresso machine is now cleaned and ready to brew great tasting coffee again. It is important to backflush daily and sometimes even twice per day depending on frequency of use. Backflushing with Cafiza will eliminate coffee residue in group heads and machine lines.

Urnex: How to Clean an Espresso Machine Using Cafiza and Rinza

Urnex: How to Clean an Espresso Machine Using Cafiza and Rinza

Hi, I’m Josh Dick, president of Urnex products. Today I’m going to talk to you about how to clean a fully automatic espresso machine. There are two quick and easy parts to clean in this machine today, first you have to clean the coffee brewing chamber, and second, you’ll have to clean the milk system. First, we will clean the coffee brewing unit. For this, we’ll use a Cafiza tablet. You’re simply going to insert one Cafiza cleaning tablet into the tablet delivery chamber on the machine. Each machine has one on top. Cleaning tablets come in specific sizes and shapes, depending on the machine and its specifications. This machine uses a 1.2 gram tablet, so that’s what I’ve just used. After you’ve placed the Cafiza tablet down the chute, press clean and the machine does the rest. Now we’ll clean the milk system. For this, use Rinza, either in tablet or liquid form. I’ll show you how to use both. Let’s use the Rinza liquid first. To fill the built-in measuring cup in the bottle, loosen the cap and squeeze the bottle. The Rinza solution will fill up to the perfect dosage. We recommend that you use 30 mL of Rinza milk frother per 500 mL of cold water and mix into a solution. Now we have our solution. Each machine calls for a specific amount of total dilution to be made, so check your instruction manual. From here, we’re going to insert the section tube into the solution. Now, we’ll run the entire solution through the milk frother system following the machine manufacturer’s maintenance and cleaning instructions, which might be on the screen. To rinse the system, we’re going to repeat all the same steps using clean water. Some machines do this for you, for those machines that don’t have an automatic rinse cycle, insert the section tube into clean water and run that through the frother system to rinse and flush away all the remaining solution. The Rinza tablet is used in basically the same way as the liquid. All you have to do is dissolve the Rinza tablet in the dilution of water noted on the package to create the proper cleaning solution. Now, you’ll have a solution to use, just as you did for the liquid. Of course, after cleaning, rinse with clean water just like before. You have now successfully cleaned your fully automatic espresso machine and are ready to make great tasting coffee.

    We have used this product for years to backwash our espresso machine. It's a necessity for sure. We also like to use it to deep clean our coffee pots - we just fill them with hot water, sprinkle a little Cafiza in, and let it soak overnight. Multifunctional!
    Great product, this is the cheapest place I've found it so far. I buy it in bulk because I will go through it. It also works really well if you have pot or pans with stains on them, just soak or scrub it with cafiza.
    You cannot find this powder cheaper anywhere else. It does a fantastic job of cleaning our espresso machine. We order these all the time for our shop!
    We use this powder every day on my coffee truck to not only clean the espresso machine, but also to soak the portafilters. It's easy to use and measure, and lasts for quite a while.
    We back flush our espresso machine regularly. This is the only product I've used for this and I don't plan on trying anything else because it works so well.
    The price here for cafiza is really good. I have to use a good deal of this so I was excited to find it on Webstaurant.
    I use this to backflush my espresso machine, as well as for soaking the portafilter. This seems to be the industry standard, and it's a great price!
    Great product for cleaning espresso machines. We use it for our La Marzocco at our cafe. It is probably the best value cleaner out there,
    This is such a useful product for our coffee shop! This cleaning powder cuts through all kinds of build-up, but does especially well on coffee and tea stained materials. We use it to clean inside our espresso machine, as well as all of our coffee making supplies and tools. Better price than we paid from another provider too!
    Nothing can match Cafiza's cleaning power. It is on par with the Magic Eraser is the wonders it can clean. I regularly clean our stainless steel pitchers, spoons, airpots, and espresso machine with it. It does irritate my hands occasionally so I recommend my staff wear gloves.
    This is the best espresso machine cleaner we have bought in a long time. It is easy to use, remove all coffee stains and oils of our espresso machines. Highly recommended!
    This is the best espresso machine cleaner around. This cleaning powder is very good at taking out coffee stains too. We just have to soak our machine parts, coffee pots etc for only about 15 minutes to completely take out stains.
    We have been using Urnex espresso machine cleaner to clean our espresso machine since the day we got it. It is easy to use and does a great job.
    This cleaner works great! Foams up to get in and around all the holes and filters. I put it in a cup with the Espresso cup you fill with grounds and it cleans the filter completely!
    We use this product every day for our espresso machine. It cleans not only the espresso machine but also any stainless steel surfaces. We mix a scoop of it with hot water and scrub down the sinks and other stainless steel surfaces for prime shine.
    You can't have an espresso machine without Cafiza Cleaning Powder! This powder makes keeping our espresso machine clean a breeze. A must-have in any coffee shop.
    I use it to clean a stainless coffee carafe that the dishwasher just won't get clean. Every couple of weeks I just add one teaspoon of powder to hot water, I would absolutely buy it again.
    We love this product to clean our automatic espresso machines and their exterior components for coffee descaling. It keeps all the items clean and shining.
    This is an incredibly useful item in our coffee shop. It keeps our equipment looking like new. I recommend making a cafiza spray with a couple of tablespoons of cafiza in a spray bottle of water, great for spraying out urns and other coffee vessels to remove stains and residue. Webstaurant has great pricing for this product too, we will continue to come back to them for this essential product.
    Thanks to this Cafiza Espresso Machine Cleaning powder our espresso machine has been a stress free cleaning routine. I love how it only takes a few minutes to dissolve.
