I wonder if my mum would like one. I'm a bit hesitant as the reviews aren't great!

The pods from Woolworths would be compatible too

We have this machine, and just bought a 2nd one seeing as they were so cheap. I've been very impressed with it. It makes a decently hot cup of coffee, which a lot of pod machines seem to have trouble delivering. It takes Map pods, woolworths pods and also Gloria Jeans. We've been using the Woolworths ones and are happy with the quality of the coffee. I have read that the Aldi pods aren't compatible due to the lack of a filter in the pods, which can make for a very grainy cup of coffee. We don't have Aldi in Adelaide, so I can't test this for myself.

The only thing we don't like about it is that we have nice big coffee mugs and we've had to remove the metal drain grate so that we can fit a mug under the outlet. No biggie though, as there is still a catchment area for drips, which we just give a wipe now and again.

The water tank is easy to fill, unlike some machines and holds a decent amount of water.

I wouldn't hesitate recommending this machine to anyone, and have been spreading the word as much as I can.

yes very tempting, and my store has one

Just a question, I saw a demo for it online and it looked like it only filed the cup up a centimetre?

That's a 'shot' of espresso - you add milk.
You can choose from 3 sizes though, 40, 60, or 100mls - strength of the coffee would then change somewhat accordingly.

I dont drink coffee but my DP does and he doesn't find the aldi ones grainy at all. I'm going to try the woolworths ones when I run out.

You can manually adjust the level of coffee each button puts into a cup. Because we use big mugs, we adjusted the full size to fill a mug up about half-way and then fill with either frothed milk or cream. I find the coffee plenty strong enough.

Got my DP one and he hasnt used it yet as he has only just bought the pods for it tonight. I also bought a milk frother to go with it, yes it has the milk steam wand but the frother was only $35 and was map too so figured what the heck and he is so far very happy with the frother as he made himself a hot milo using the milk.

#21 JazzyWeasel

Posted 20 December 2012 - 02:45 PM

Hmmm I bought the woolies one for my parents for Christmas. Wonder if I should take it back because we didn't buy a milk frother for them. Figured they could buy it themselves but I like that the map one has a frother.
Now can I talk DH into taking it back for me  wink.gif .

Thank you thank you got one here at Woodville, Adelaide Harvey Norman. The price said normally 129.00 I think. It takes a lot for me to step foot in a HV store so thank you OP.

I've bought one for my mil but I must admit its not the nicest looking one and the water reservoir is quite hard to get in and out! I have the woolworths one for $69 and I'm quite impressed with it, looks good, easy to use and the Gloria jeans coffee is nice. It also takes the map pods and the woolworths select pods but I havnt tried these yet. Much nicer coffee than the aldi pods and as good as the nespresso I'd say!

#25 hmmm...

Also you have to release the pressure through the frother before you can actually make the coffee.  She said it uses about ½ cup of water doing this and you have to do it each time.

S


I have had this machine since July and probably had to release the steam twice (due to my husband pressing the wrong button). We have a seperate milk frother though as we originally bought the frother and machine from aldi, but the machine didnt work, so we returned it and bought this one instead but still had the frother.

Also - the water jug is quite easy to get in and out once you really take a look at how it sits in there.

I love it, dont have a problem with the adli pods being grainy, but actually prefer the woolworths select pods. We had visitors staying for a week, and it was probaly used over 20 times a day at this time without an issue.
