The first time I used Cleancaf, something remarkable happened. I was dissolving a packet of Cleancaf in a quart of warm water in my coffee maker’s carafe before pouring it into the machine’s reservoir. As I stirred, I suddenly noticed that a heretofore invisible film was being stripped off the inside surfaces of the carafe. Small gray sheets and bits of material – that I’d never realized was there – were coming off the walls of the carafe. After the Cleancaf was dissolved, I dumped the solution into the coffee maker and ran it through a brew cycle.
In addition to a bunch of calcified looking chunks being deposited in the machine’s empty filter, the water which ended up in the carafe was literally GREY. Here’s a shot of this taken by another Cleancaf user (thanks to Paul Rj Muller) -
It was amazing just how much junk and crud builds up in our Technivorm, and the greyish water that results from using Cleancaf is nothing less than disgusting.
After the initial brew cycle, you run clean water through the unit twice. A side benefit is the fact that the carafe, water reservoir, – in fact, all the components that brewing coffee touches – look much, much cleaner after Cleancaf – in fact, they look virtually new!
For the record, I had descaled the unit in the past with white vinegar. It’s abundantly clear (no pun intended) that vinegar did a very poor job by comparison.
Cleancaf is non-toxic and easy to use. As I write this, three packets cost $5.11 at Amazon.
- Coffee and espresso maker cleaner
- Use for cleaning home coffee makers and espresso machines
- Has no odor and is non-toxic
- Enjoy better tasting coffee
- Box comes with 3 packets
I heartily recommend this product; it’s inexpensive and does a fantastic job! If you’ve been using vinegar to descale your coffee maker, you definitely ought to give Cleancaf a try!
