I have a 12 year old Pasquini Livia 90 expresso machine. I hadn't back flushed it in probably a year, and didn't have the Cafiza powder, and mistakenly bought Jura tablets and dissolved 2 in the tank as directed by a salesperson at SurLaTable and ran through the machine. Now I realize I should never have put any cleaner through the tank. The coffee tastes fine, the hot water is fine, but the steamer makes the milk taste soapy. Have I damaged the machine and am I being poisoned?
I don't have a back flush on my cheap espresso machine and I'm wondering if I'm supposed to put this Cafiza powder in the water tank or just the filter pod. If in the tank, how much powder with how much water?
Are these tablets or powder?
I just received my new La Pavoni Europiccola, and performed the "First Time Operation" (out of box) cleaning procedure, using the supplied packet of Cafiza. My question is how many rinse cycles do you recommend ... the supplied instructions only call for one rinse. My concern is that because it's Cafiza and was run through the boiler, should more than one rinse be performed? And if so, how many?
I recently bought a EXPOBAR Office lever espresso machine....is this product the correct product to purchase/use for cleaning/back-flushing the machine?
I recieved a packet of this cleaner with my Napolitana La Pavoni - can't tell from your chart if this is the recommended cleaner for my machine. Can you help me with cleaning products?
Thank you, Peggy
actually, I need info on cleaning my EXPOBAR Lever. I bought this about 4-5 years ago. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Bought Cafiza as was told to clean it every month which I do. But now for some time actually, my cups come out bitter and no it isn't the coffee. What can I do to clean my machina better? Diane
I have the Expobar Office Pulser and was wondering how often I should backflush with Cafiza? Also, I am using the monthly replaceable filters. In this case how often should I descale and what product would you recommend? Thanks.
what dilution should I use for Gaggia Titanium water tank (how many grams/teaspoons) for descaling?
