    Can it take other capsules?

      Aldi ones IIRC…

      I'm smelling easy Xmas gifts here; along with surreptitiously ensuring myself a decent cup of joe whilst visiting potential recipients in the future! ;)

        I would use some caution with the Aldi capsules as while they are the same size, the internal filters are different.

        From memory there is a thread on whirlpool discussing this.

        •  

          Thanks for the heads-up!

          I do recall reading that somewhere now that you mention it…something about the filters being at opposite ends; but I also recall some users saying that they couldn't taste a difference…I LOL'd at that! :)

        •  

          I tried the MAP caps in the ALDI machine and although they fit it doesnt work.
          I believe that the two machines flow through the capsule in different directions and thus the internal make up if the capsule is different.

      Just finished researching this. It works with the K-cup or K-fee capsules, so Aldi and Woolworths ones will work fine with it.

    also the new woolworths/gloria jeans capsules

    as long as they are "caffitaly"

    is this good for the GF who wants a coffee machine but has not high expectations/is not a coffee snob? I.e; simple to use and maintain (clean etc)?

    • +3 votes

      Definitely should be simple to maintain and use. Capsules are more expensive than buying coffee beans. Around 50-70c a capsule.

      Capsules are currently available from:
      * Woolworths - Select & Gloria Jeans brands
      * Target, Officeworks - MAP

      This has a small advantage over the $79 Woolworths machine in that it has a steam wand.

        Aldi capsules - 38c

          aldi capsules are no cheaper than woolies ones, why bother?

          in terms of the caffitaly capsules my taste preference is MAP > Gloria Jeans > Woolies

          Woolies - 16 pods @ $5.99 (IIRC)
          Gloria Jeans - 16 pods @ $7.49
          Map - 10 pods @ $6.50

        cheers, great response.

    On way to Munro para. Thanks OP.

    Doesn't come with any POD's or milk jug… hmmmmm!

    reuse your capsules with ground beans and alfoil!

    • +1 vote

      I started doing this about 2 months ago on this Map machine. Double layer of foil and wrap firmly around rim of capsules. No problems, works just like store bought pods. It's great because you can choose your own coffee ground. The savings is a bonus.

      Not exactly sure how many times you can refill the capsules. I've refilled 4-5 times and the capsule and filters still feel solid.

    The Aldi pods don't work very well with this machine in my experience. The pods are rather different internally, and the Aldi pods end up producing a weak coffee. Best to stick with the Caffitaly pods (e.g. Woolworths or MAP).

  •  

    I have a Aldi machine and have used Map and Gloria Jeans caps fine :)

    This is only a 15bar one where the othera are normally 19?

    •  

      I also noticed this. Most seem to be 19-bar pumps. I know the Aldi Expressi machine is 19-bar.

    •  

      More bar is not necessarily better.
      This is a marketing gimmick.
      Slowing the coffee through the grounds (without overextraction) will improve the flavor.

  •  

    Note for beginners. Page 15 of the manual.
    Once you froth the milk, you have to remove the heat from the machine by the process at dot point 1. Otherwise you stuff around for 10 mins wondering why it's not working. So I've heard anyway…

    Machine is 'on special' at Munno para for $69, asked the staff member Sue about it, she checked on their system and brought it to $49.

    Initial turn on pump noise made me jump, but I guess it was dry. It ate up the water in the reservoir on first go.

    i dont doubt this is a great deal, and map pods arent half bad, but imo, this is a hideous machine that i wouldnt want left on my kitchen bench. id prefer to spend the little extra and get something more stylish like the aldi or woolies model. imo anyway

        If two products cost roughly the same and produce roughly the same result, surely the better looking options win out?

  •  

    Just mishear the the name and hey presto! got a free Matt Preston endorsement! he he Good One Gerry!

  •  

    just picked this up, its seems to be ok, just know that its not quiet at all. It's not incredibly loud, but i was surprised at the amount of noise

  •  

    Had this machine for 4 months. Only use it once or twice a day. Already leaking water and not steaming properly. About to contact supplier re warranty. Read reviews on other sites. Hit and miss by the looks. reviews http://www.productreview.com.au/p/map-presto-capsule.html

    •  

      There's a 12 month warranty, why don't you take it back for a working one?

      Ahh.. You are. My bad.

  •  

    Not enough bars in the "Bar Pump" for me Gerry .. please add some more

  •  

    My Aldi machine works but then jams with Map Pods.

    Needs Surgery to remove the pod.

    Noticed at Target they had $75 Cashback on there map machine the ones in the red box Bellla I think there called . I Didn't read the details but could be worth an ozbargain look if map are offering cash back on some models.

    •  

      It appears the $75 is for a Map Coffee Gift Card. Deliveries are free over $50 and you will need capsules, so I guess not too bad a deal.

  •  

    Any mods or re-usable systems for this machine (other than refilling an old pod)?

    …bought this one..and had the ALDI one(which stopped working 2 months ago) as well since last year….Still Go everyday and have a coffee from 7-11 store…..Seriously I am crazy…

  •  

    about 6 left at springvale HN, theres probably more out the back though

  •  

    great deal thanks :)

  •  

    just stick with the map capsules, they work the best every time.

  •  

    that's cheaper than the equivalent one from Woolworth, will see Woolworth dropping their price too!!

  •  

    Does anyone know where to get a cheap little metal jug?

  •  

    Was going to purchase one of these couple of months, but was up-sold a Map branded Caffitaly machine, which is essentially identical to the Woolies branded one. I wouldn't use K-fee pods (Aldi) with these machines as the pods differ internally, even though they might fit. I got the Map milk-frother included and it works great. Woolies also sell a black frother ($25 from memory?). Not keen on steam wands, used them on a more expensive machine and result is not as good or convenient as the dedicated frother.

    Tried all the Map varieties, and the Nicaraguan and Smooth Classic Gloria Jeans pods. The Map Portofino was my favourite espresso, I found the Gloria Jeans too smokey and bitter. But you can make a nice cappuccino with most of them if you find a particular pod too bitter etc.

    I just got my coffee machine but its doesn't have stainless steel boiler. Does anyone have the same issue ?
