This cleaning powder is best used for backflushing traditional espresso machines or soaking coffee and espresso machine parts, as well as cleaning coffee brewers. The products in the Biocaf line from Urnex contain naturally occurring ingredients. This cleaning powder does not include ingredients derived from petroleum and phosphates and transparently lists all the ingredients used in each product.
