CleanCup Single Cup Brewer Cleaning Cups and Descaling Liquid

CleanCup Single Cup Brewer Cleaning Cups and Descaling Liquid

Are you worried about getting some cocoa in your next cup of coffee? Did you just try some K-Cup that has left a mess in your brewer head? Are you worried your hard water has left your K-Cup brewer full of bad stuff to clog it? We have these problems monthly with all of our testing here at Single Serve Coffee, and Urnex has developed the CleanCup Single Cup Brewer Cleaning Cups and their CleanCup Descaling Liquid for K-Cup brewers to solve these problem.

The CleanCup is the first single cup brewer cleaner in a cup. It's a cleaner in a cup that ensures removal of oily residue from exit needle. It's also biodegradable, odorless and phosphate free, and is as easy to use as a K-Cup to clean the brewer head. Delivering a cleaner through a cup is the only way to ensure that the oily residue will be removed from the exit spout. Proper cleaning of your single cup brewer is the first step towards ensuring consistent great tasting coffee and extending the life of your machine.

The CleanCup Cups and Descaling liquid can refresh your brewing experience.

We have to admit we routinely are messing around trying to make sure the needle is free when we use an overpacked resusuable coffee filter, and it was nice to have the CleanCup do the work for us. You simply put the CleanCup in the machine, and then put a coffee cup underneath (don't drink this blue brew), and push the brew cycle. We went for 12 ounce cups, and you run it through 1 time, and then remove the CleanCup and rinse 1-2 more times.

Voila!  We now have a CleanCup cleaned brewer head. Now we decided to use the CleanCup Descaling Liquid which can be used with any single serve coffee brewer, but does go great with the CleanCup and descale one two punch. The descaling liquid is meant to keep your entire brewer pump and water process clean and free of nasty build up. It's also more time consuming as you'll need to run 3 tanks of water through your K-Cup brewer.

You simply pour 1/3 of the descaling liquid bottle in the reservoir, and start brewing using the hot water setting on the highest setting (for us 12 ounces). You don't have to have a CleanCup in the brew head, as this is a different process. All told it took us just over 20 minutes or so to run the tanks through, but our reservoir, and also our brewer is now kicking out more water and things look fresh and clean.

CleanCup Single Cup Brewer Cleaning Cups are only compatible with the Keurig K-Cup Brewing System. Urnex is currently working on developing cleaners in a capsule for other Keurig Brewing Systems. The CleanCup descaling liquid can be used with any single serve coffee brewing system.

Both the  CleanCup Single Cup Brewer Cups and CleanCup Descaling Liquid are available now.
