A shopper asked: Can you use Urnex Cafiza Cleaning products on Jura machines ? Will doing so void your warranty ? Or is it the same analogy as getting an oil change with your car, you can pay $50 at the dealer, but can pay 30 anywhere else and you warranty won't be void. Jan 21, 2013

Jennifer T: I love cafiza. I use it at home the powder for my rancillo and at work. It cleans like a dream. I would use it on your espresso machine. I have used it on every machine I have ever worked on. Jan 21, 2013

Brian G: I do not own a Jura - I have an Expobar so I cannot speak to the warranty. Cafiza is excellent for clean a portafilter or brew head. I would consult either the dealer or manufacturer on how to clean the interior components of a full automatic prior to putting any chemical in the unit. Jan 23, 2013

Mark P: I only use the Urnex Cafiza to soak my portafilter and to back flush my Rocket. I use the Cleancaf Coffee/Espresso Machine Cleaner & Descaler packets to descale the machine. I can't imagine that it would void a warranty. But you may want to call and ask. Jan 21, 2013

A shopper asked: Is Cafiza safe to use on pressurized portafilters like Saeco Aroma's for soaking? Sep 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: Yes, you can use Cafiza to remove oil build up in your pressurized portafilter, just be mindful of the amount of time you soak and only let plastic components soak for an hour or so before thorough rinsing. Sep 16, 2014

A shopper asked: can i use this on a fully automatic coffee maker to descale the heating elements? Sep 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Teri KStaff: No, Cafiza is a coffee oil remover and does not descale. For descaling you would need a product like Dezcal or Durgol.

A shopper asked: Do you use this product with due care? It contains Trisodium Phosphate (TSP), commonly used to strip paint from walls. it's toxic, causes burns, and can persist in the environment indefinitely. Here's a quote from the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS): "Chemical goggles, full-face shield, or a full-face respirator is to be worn at all times when product is handled. Contact lenses should not be worn; they may contribute to severe eye injury." A Google search for trisodium phosphate is quite an eye-opener. Jul 29, 2014

Teri KStaff: I can certainly understand your concern- that does sound alarming! When I use Cafiza I do notice that if I get it on my hands it does seem a bit harsh- it has an irritation and drying quality almost like bleach. I take care not to touch the solution too much and then after I back flush or soak components in Cafiza I will thoroughly flush with water and brew and discard a shot. I have not experienced any issues from using this product. Hopefully this info helps you out! Jul 30, 2014

I've been using it for many years and I don't think there is any reason to look for something else. This gets the job done.

Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your machine in top shape. Weekly (or more frequent, depending on use) detergent backflush cleaning and monthly dispersion screen, portafilter, and basket soaking in a good detergent should be part of that routine. You do want your investment in a quality espresso machine to keep paying off over the years, right?

Great for Backflush Cleaning

It's hard to get excited about cleaning powder, but it is a very important part of your espresso machine maintenance.

Use this cleaning powder and a backflush basket about once a month to clean out the group head screen and the 3-way valve / drain tubing. You can also soak your portafilter in some of this solution to help clean out the coffee buildup that gets trapped in there. Great product.

Pros:
Easy To Use

Cons:
None
