This is amazing stuff - it only takes a little powder to get a lot of coffee stains off of equipment. It also doesn't leave a flavor behind. When I first used this I was working as a barista in a bookstore and was amazed at how quickly the powder removed a day's worth of coffee grunge from our espresso machine and coffee pots. The only trouble we ever had with it was when we used too much powder - then the powder didn't fully dissolve and had to be wiped off. But even then it didn't affect the taste of the espresso the next morning. I would say for home use, you probably don't need more than a half teaspoon to clean out a coffee pot. I will probably purchase some once it comes back in stock!

If you back-flush your espresso machine often you may not fully appreciate how effective Cafiza is. I lost my back-flush insert (a.k.a. blind basket) about six months ago and only recently purchased a new one. Upon receiving the back-flush insert, I quickly tested it by doing a water-only back-flush on my Rancilio Silvia. The back-flush water was relatively clean considering it had been six months since the last back-flush. I then performed the typical Cafiza back-flush and noticed just how much residue this product actually removes.

I think that this is made specially for some type of back-flushing procedure on espresso machines, but I use it for my regular coffee maker, my espresso machine, and all my travel mugs / thermoses. A small spoonful mixed into hot water gets absolutely all the coffee residue out. It was most fun the first time I used it on my well-used travel mug; the shiny black layer at the bottom that I thought would never come off was gone completely after an overnight soak! Coffee really does taste better when your equipment is clean; I think that's why I always preferred french press or pour-over drip coffee (those devices are easy to keep totally clean). This Cafiza allows me to enjoy the same taste out of my drip coffee maker, and there's enough in one container to last several years at least.

UPDATE: March, 2012:
I have been using the Cafiza weekly for about 15 months now, and the container is still over half full. All of our travel mugs, brewing equipment, etc is squeaky clean all the time. Well worth the minimal effort needed.

This stuff works on espresso machines and on coffee percolators. I use it for both. (I can't comment on drip machines because I gave up on them years ago). You need Urnex Cafiza or some similar product to clean your coffee equipment every now and then. You can use all the soap and hot water you want, but there is some brown stuff deposited by the magical coffee bean that won't wash off metal parts that come into contact with coffee. You can use vinegar and water and run it through a percolator and that will help from day to day to prevent bitterness in the coffee. Still over time, the inside of the percolator, even a stainless steel one, will take on a brownish stain that won't go away. I used to use a similar product called "Dip It" but don't see it available anymore. Cafiza is probably a similar product chemically speaking, but both work great. Just brew a pot of coffee, just don't use any coffee grounds. Instead add Cafiza to the water. When the pot is done "brewing" pour the water out into the sink. It will be BROWN! Yuck! Rinse your percolator and look inside. What you see will gratify you. The brown stain is completely gone. The inside is bright and shiny and looks like it was just manufactured. Cafiza is a must-have product.

Urnex Cafiza took away all the black gunk in my coffeemaker and was easy to use. It doesn't make the coffee taste funny if you follow the directions and run it twice with clear water.

Quick review here: product works great to clean out drip coffee maker. We had an expensive coffee maker / grinder unit that we bought this for. Eventually that thing died, and we went back to a cheap-o drip maker. Anyway, the coffee pot in the cheap-o unit got nasty after a few months. We dumped 1 tsp of this stuff in the drip tank and a full coffee pot of water. We ran the cycle and let the water with the cleaner sit in the pot for 45 minutes.

Boom: clean coffee pot (and presumably the innards of the machine).

What more could you want?

We bought the liquid cleaner stuff before (Durgol, I believe), and the powder works just as well. Except the powder is probably 1/20th the cost in terms of a per clean cost.

For an average coffee maker, one bottle will last forever. Seriously. There must be 500 tsps in a bottle of the powder product.

This product really works on any type of machine, even those without the three-way valve. The foamy solution will get up in the brewhead screen and all the holes in your portafilter basket, stripping them of rancid oils. I had my machine about a month before cleaning it, now I'll be using this every other week. Highly recommended if you want to keep your espresso tasting great!

WORTH IT?
Man, I have been naiive about how important good water and a clean machine is to brewing a tasty pot of coffeee! A co-worker who used to own a coffee shop told me to pick up this powder (it's what he always used and still relies on). All the reviews online are extremely positive but it seemed too good to be true.

YES AND HERE'S HOW TO USE IT
The reviews were true. I searched through them, though, and could not figure out the "right" way to use the powder. Directions are not on the box or the product's website for anything but espresso machines. I have a Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind & Brew, Brushed Chrome and here's how I did it...

Cycle 1: I put powder in the gold filter like I was making a batch of ground coffee and filled the reservoir full of water. I let the carafe sit for 5 or 10 minutes, swirled it around, and poured out the foaming liquid. I read the product can irritate skin so be careful. This almost wiped my stainless steel carafe completely clean of the layer of coffee residue. Insane! I had scrubbed and fought with it using various metal spoons and chopsticks. This powder beat me out in a matter of minutes!

Cycle 2: I cleaned out the rest of the coffee maker and filled up the reservoir again with water. Shook in a little bit (maybe 1tsp) of powder and ran another cycle. Let the pot/carafe sit again. When I emptied it this time, I turned it upside down and shook vigorously. This second cycle cleaned everything out of the carafe.

Cycles 3-5: To clean away any remaining foam inside my machine or elsewhere, I ran through another 3 full cycles of only water (no powder, no coffee).
