My mother doesn't understand good coffee. She never cleans her drip maker, and she makes the worst coffee you can imagine because of it. I decided that I'd do her a favor and clean it for her. This turned out to be impossible, no matter how many cycles of vinegar, soap, cleaners, and good old fashioned elbow grease I used on it. The urn remained stubbornly brown with a black cake on the bottom. I thought ages of coffee sludge was going to be stuck on there forever and it was ruined. I'd figure I'd have to buy my mom a new maker for Christmas and try to get her to practice some better coffee hygiene habits (fat chance).

I told a friend of mine about my failed efforts, and she directed me to pick up this stuff instead. I was skeptical, given how bad off the maker was. She was just so enthusiastic about it that I finally gave in and ordered some. Low and behold --Two cycles and my mom's drip maker literally looked like it just came out of the box! Not a single speck of cooked on oil caked on anywhere! No scrubbing! I thought I heard the Hallelujah Chorus start up when I rinsed it out the second time. My mother and I were both pleased and I was finally able to enjoy a cup of coffee at her house for the first time in years.

When I went home and ran some through my own maker that I've been using the vinegar method on for years. I even tasted a difference in my own coffee, and I've been religious about keeping my drip maker clean! Or so I thought.

Color me impressed, and that's why I'm writing this review. You can't go wrong with this stuff, even on seriously tough cleaning jobs.

My husband bought this to clean our combination grinder and coffee maker. Honestly, I was highly skeptical. We've had our coffee maker for several years and have tried to "really clean it" several times without much success. The powdered coffee grounds were stuck in crevices all around the grinder and pretty much impossible to clean out even with a toothpick. I had to clean out the chute where the ground beans travel down to the filter every day or else it would get clogged and make brown water instead of coffee.

Here's what I didn't like about it: the instructions. They're basically pictures there are kind of hard to decipher. I read that other people didn't have this problem, but I had to go online to Puro's site to find instructions with words. This was extremely helpful in deciphering the picture instructions on the bottle.

What was also extremely helpful is that on the online instructions they gave the tip that you can combine 4 tablespoons of the cleaner with one quart hot water and put it in a spray bottle to use to clean the surface areas. I ended up mixing 1 tsp into 20 ounces of hot water because that's how big my spray bottle is. I felt like I was using a power sprayer on the grinder and chute of the coffee maker. Using the stream setting on the spray bottle, I basically blasted away all of the fine coffee particles that had been been lodged in the crevices for years. All of the residue and oil came off, and it looks like we have a brand new coffee pot.

I used the cleaner as the instructions said. I ran it through the machine and soaked as many parts as possible. Even though I had removed all the beans and used a hand vac to suck up as much loose coffee as possible beforehand, the water being used to clean it was almost black with all the coffee oil, powder, and residue coming off of it. The inside of our thermal carafe shines, and it unclogged the lid so it pours correctly again. I also no longer have to unclog the chute everyday - which makes me extremely happy.

Regardless that the instructions left something to be desired, the product itself is amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone who owns a coffee maker.

They sent me Cafiza but I actually prefer Puro Caff. If you work with both, you'll notice they are a bit different (I find Puro Caff more efficient!). Buyer beware!

My son first told me about this product after he flew home on a recent trip. He'd stopped for coffee at an airport and the barista took one look at his coffee thermos and said, "You need to get this product." The barista then told him about Puro. My son bought a canister from Amazon and tried it out and couldn't wait to tell me about it. I ordered it myself the next day and tried it out as soon as it arrived. My travel mug had been so stained by coffee and the mouth of it was just narrow enough that I couldn't get my hand inside it to really scrub the stains. I put in 1 teaspoon of the Puro, added boiling water and let it sit for a half hour. Then I just poured it out and my travel mug was spotless inside. I just couldn't believe it. Check out my picture posted on the product page. It truly is like magic and effortless, to boot. Best money spent in ages.

I was a barista for a while, which is how I found out about Purocaff - we used it to clean our espresso and coffee machines. It's amazing and so easy to use. Cleaning with Purocaff makes a huge difference in the taste of your espresso!

$13 might seem steep, but trust me - this will last you forever. You need maybe 1 tsp at a time to do a thorough cleaning, less for everyday purposes.

The instructions on the package aren't super clear, so here's how I was taught to use it:
- Every time you make espresso, rinse out the filter and soak it in a dash of Purocaff dissolved in water
- At LEAST once a week, shake a little Purocaff into the filter and run the machine. This'll get rid of all the excess grounds caught in the machine. Scrub it out with a brush (wear gloves) and rinse. Soak the filter afterwards.

I know this product is typically used in coffee shops. I found out about it because I was a barista wayyyyy back in the day. Anyway, this product is GREAT for heavy duty cleaning around your house. I have laminate counter tops in my bathroom that were caked with hairspray that would not wipe off with other cleaners. I used this product and its GONE GONE GONE! I've also used it to clean kitchen grout. Get creative. This stuff WORKS!

I had used the vinegar method and plain soap and water before, but this stuff is amazing. It really cleaned out my machine. The directions are just pictures, pretty straightforward and easy to follow, and it doesn't take much to clean out.

If you know what puro Caff is then you do not need to read the reviews to know what you are getting. This stuff just works. I work at a coffee shop. We use this for back flushing our machine, cleaning our airpots that we store coffee in, soaking the porta filters and baskets, the coffee basket, everything that coffee goes through basically.
Rinses out easily and never left a weird taste in anything.
Only downfall is I feel on the porta filters and baskets that it leaves some of the oils behind, do not know why. But we wash them with soap anyway after that so it is no big deal, just an observation:)

I've tried Comet, Ajax, Bar-keepers Friend, Bon-Ami, dishwashing soap. When cleaning out old coffee from coffee equipment, this can't be beat. It's a one-trick pony so far (there's probably more it can do) but it's a great trick!

I use it to clean carafes, thermoses (plural for thermos???), and other coffee equipment. It's not meant for cleaning mineral problems, that's what vinegar is for. This is just for cleaning out those stubborn coffee stains.

And it rocks.

Puro Caff keeps our commercial espresso maker clean, and a little really goes a long way. Using it every day on 2 heads, this 20 oz container lasts nearly 6 months!
