Espresso Machine Cleaning Tablet |  Cafiza Vs Cafetto 

When it comes to espresso machine cleaning tablets, brands like Cafiza and Cafetto will automatically come into mind.  Cafiza is a USA brand under Urnex while Cafetto is an Australian brand. 

There are many online reviews about both brands. Both espresso machine cleaning tablets serve the basic function of cleaning and sanitizing the Espresso coffee machine. There are baristas who standby Cafiza while Cafetto has its own fair share of baristas supporting the brand as well.

This article compares both products in the perspective of a practitioner who is sourcing espresso machine cleaning tablets for use in a Café Chain. I have purchased both Cafiza and Cafetto espresso machine cleaning tablets for comparison.

Price-wise, Cafiza E16 Espresso Tablet is more economical as S$58.50 for 100 tablets, per wash is $0.58. While Cafetto Tevo Mini Espresso Tablet costs $57.40 for 60 tablets, per wash is $0.95. 

If both products provide the same cleaning result which they did, I would go for Cafiza E16 Espresso Tablet which is easily 40% lower cost. For a Café Chain, I think this will be very economic and my boss will love me for the cost-saving. 

However, if both espresso cleaning tablets are the same price, I would definitely go for Cafetto Tevo Mini Espresso Tablet. I like the green and white label which give me a refreshing and green feel. I like their packaging that keeps the end-user in mind (anti-slip snap cap). 

Cafetto has focused a lot on their food safety (ISO22000, HACCP) and environmental friendly (ISO14000) efforts such as phosphate and genetically modified organisms (GMO) free, non-corrosive formulation to protect the machine and rapidly biodegradable.
