It will depends of the compatibility of the client's browser. In 
mod_deflate configs, you should see that it have some configurations 
about what kind of browser can handle compressed files.

This also depends on your settings. If you force all content to be 
compressed, it will be stored in cache compressed. but if the browser is 
not supported, it will store a compressed file, and also a not 
compressed file on cache.

Before you start using mod_deflate + mod_cache, you must have in mind 
what kind of files you want to compress and/or cache. What kind of cache 
you will use (disk / mem / file), what folders and/or file types you 
must cache and what not.

A good starting point is the Apache cache guide 

Good luck and any other doubt, i will be happy to help
