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.
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.
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).Read more ›
