    Instructions for use on Automatic Espresso Machines

    If the machine has a cleaning program:

    • Insert one Espresso Machine Cleaning 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 Espresso Machine Cleaning 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.

An absolute necessity for the home barista!

There’s a reason Urnex Cafiza is the industry standard: nothing works nearly as well! Effortlessly cleans away built-up residue. Bought this for my parents, who have a super-automatic, but I use the standard Cafiza powder all the time as well (for backflushing, getting rid of stains on mugs and carafes, and cleaning cloth filters like nothing else!).

Quick & Convenient

Not a whole lot to think about on this one. Cafiza is the most recognizable coffee cleaner on the market, and the tabs just add a little convenience. If you’re reading the reviews on this one, you likely have some underlying commitment issues.
