Pallo JoeGlo Backflush Detergent is often described as “The Best stuff to clean your espresso machine". Pallo JoeGlo is a premium quality, fast acting, low-foaming espresso machine backflush detergent. JoeGlo completely removes residual coffee oils, odors and flavors from your group heads, lines and valves. JoeGlo even contains a water softener to help prevent scale buildup. Give it a try and you'll see why so many top baristas prefer it.
Use Pallo JoeGlo Backflush Detergent in very hot water to mix up the Pallo "Wicked Liquid" Solution. Cleans and deodorizes your portafilters, screens, shot glasses and utensils in record time. Use it to clean out your glass pots, airpots, urns, thermos' and steam pitchers. JoeGlo also works wonders on crusty steam wands. Just soak them for a couple of minutes and Bam!, they're clean.
Would this be safe for use on Gaggia Classic espresso machines? And if so, would it replace CleanCaf, which i know understand is not recommended for these machines? Would i need to also use a descaler? thanks--
This product is not a descaling solution, but a backflush detergent. While you can safely use it to backflush your Gaggia Classic, don't mix it with water in the tank or try to run it through the boiler. It doesn't fully enter solution with the water and will clog pump and the rest of the water circuit.
As far as alternatives are concerned, I recommend either Gaggia Liquid Decalcifier, or Durgol Swiss Espresso Descaler. Both are compatible with the aluminum boilers used by these machines.
