Great machine and Aldi service
I bought the machine and loved it. It died within a year. Aldi replaced it with no issues and 5 years later I’m still using the replacement machine. Cheap, cheerful, quick pod coffee. Excellent value for money. I like pod no. 5 for taste personally. Great coffee machine.
Get what you pay for !
It was o.k but the water didn't get very hot .
And the milk didn't froth like other machines l've used..
It was a gift to me but l would have prefered to put money towards it and upgrade.
Purchased in December 2013.
Still working and great coffee
My misses’s loves this machine, her dad came over from Russia and he’s the fussiest man I ever met and he loves his coffee, we visited many places in Victoria and NSW and stopped at many cafes, however he said the best coffee was from the expresso machine at home. We use the Milano pods. Really good coffee and cheap.
Awesome Coffee Machine
I have had the Aldi coffee machine for 3 years and couldn't be happier. I used to have the DeLonghi Nespresso Machine, but had lots of problems and the pods were too expensive. The range of Aldi coffee pods are amazing and taste so smooth. I look forward to my first cuppa every morning - can't beat the taste or value.
Awesome coffee maker
I love this coffee machine and the coffee pods. I have saved so much money on not buying coffees and the machine is so simple to use and keep clean. I have not had any problems with our machine and the value for what you pay equals brilliance. Will definitely get another in the event our current one stops working
Excellent easy to use Machine! Very affordable and easy to use!!
Purchased this machine a few years back and its still going very strong its very easy to use, the pods are very reasonably priced and its very easy to clean. we use daily and multiple times.
The style and size is very good for smaller kitchens but also gives a nice stylish look to your kitchen!
MY favourite pods are the twelve (blue box) fantastic affordable machine!!
Simple and affordable!
Simple to use, its very catering to the amount of coffee desired. So many flavours to choose from with pretty decent but consistent quality coffee. So budget friendly with so many capsules that come in the boxes purchased and the machine is small and slim to fit anywhere in the kitchen/household! Aldi has done it again!
Great coffee pod machine
Very Easy to use, operate and clean. My machine is still working perfectly. The pods are decently priced with lots of different choices in flavours and strengths. Chai latte pods are delicious, and the coffee pods are really good too. Decently priced pods and really good quality coffee. The coffee could be a bit hotter, but I just add some boiling water when I refill it.
By far one of the best machines going. Coffee pods are also cheap every day so makes drinking coffee very affordable. $6.00 for 12 pods
I don’t drink milk so this machine is perfect for me. It’s easy to clean and doesn’t really need to be rescaled like other machines I’ve had. Easy to use with two opinions short or long.
Sure Fix for Aldi machine
My older machine worked perfectly until it died after 4 years. I was extremely happy with the machine and the coffee so replaced the old machine with a 2016 model.
No end of problems. In colder weather I had to use a heat gun for 15 minutes or more to warm the unit sufficiently so it worked. I had to heat the pods with a cigarette lighter just so the 2016 machine would pierce the pods.
For the past three days I have used 15 pods just to get two cups each only 1/3 full!
This morning after 5 pods and no result I smashed the unit with an ...axe in frustration. All I wanted was a cup of coffee but the badly designed machine pushed me to these extreme measures. The unit is well out of warranty so no point in contacting Aldi. Have Aldi upgraded recently to a model that works reliably? I have several boxes (maybe 15 or more) of pods and it would seem to be a waste to throw them out if there is a new machine or model that works?
Love this machine, coffee always tastes to perfection ..easy to use, surprised us because we thought Aldi just sells cheap & you get what you pay for, I purchase this machine because of the price, it was on sale... it has been great for our family of 5...latte is our favourite & this machine never disappoints... way to go Aldi!
It leaks great flavours but rust begins after a while
Yes love taste easy to use fast processed
And somewhat easy to clean just always had a leak around the cup placement section my mum asked me to remove it
Also the frother is amazing addition and hot chocolate
Or chai is amazing on a cold winter night yummm great
Good coffee, regular use costly and generates rubbish
Most stronger coffee pods are good. Easy to keep clean/rinse through. Need to use 2 pods for a mug of coffee. Creates a lot of rubbish/spent pods. Price of Aldi pods are comparable to other cheaper brands. A hassle to have to go to Aldi though, can't just run in and out quickly. Can only buy pods in packs of 10. A bulk pack would be good. The liquid catching tray has a very badly placed gap causing spills if not emptied often.
The taste and quality of the coffee is excellant, very happy with this machine. It is very easy to use and equally easy to clean. However I am not happy with the exterior fading of the machine. It dosnt look the best as has a few large faded marks on the exterior. Whilst this does not affect the coffee I do not like the look of it in my kitchen
Perfect for every day Use..
We use our machine every day x 5 ..Have owned our machine for over 2 years..We love all the different pods to try...The coffee is great.. The machine is easy to clean and easy to use and the frother addition makes for a yummy cuppa.. All in all for the price and performance And taste we are very happy...I will be buying another one..
Beautiful coffee at work.
Coffee tastes great for a quick work coffee. Gives a great top up during the day. Super easy to use just pop the pods in and press the button. Ususally use 2 pods and the milk frother and is perfect. Easy to clean by simply taking out the drawer and putting through wash occasionally.
Good coffee, not flexible in the output.
As an alternative to Nespresso, I found the Aldi machine makes a decent cup, but with limited options to customize the serving size. The family like the additional non-coffee varieties. I find it difficult to see the volume of remaining water in the tank, and think they could have made the plastic slightly clearer, although depending on where you place it this may not be an issue.
Perfect for early mornings
To start off, the coffee is great and affordable. I mainly want to mention how easy it is to use when you have just woken up. When you have just woken up you don't want to have to work out how to make the coffee. You want to be able to just press a button and have the coffee made for you and this machine is perfect just for that. Would highly recommend.
My Favorite Pod Machine
I've tried a few different pod machines through work and friends but the Aldi version and pods are still my favorite.
The really old machines had some problems but they've fixed them all now, like the locking mechanism etc.
It's also among the cheapest pod price. I would recommend trying it, I prefer it over the nespresso machines and pods.
Higly recommend the Abruzzo flavoured pods.
Great machine, various pods available, fairly cheap to run
Makes a good enough coffee, my favourite is reggio 9. The wife loves the chai latte's or white hot chocolates.
Various different strength coffees, different flavoured hot chocolates and chai's available, great for guests when combined with a milk frother.
havent had any warranty issues just keeps going!
Pods have a recycling program now, good for people who have 1-2 cofees a day
Questions & Answers
My aldi coffee machine suddenly won't wrk. Button switch not coming on. Any suggestions?
I have an aldi expressi machine, purchased less than four months ago, the only button that works is the rinse button. I can no longer make a cup of coffee with one press of a button. I have to press the rinse button about five time to get a full cup. Anyone know a fix for this or should I just return?
The idea of these machines is for making lattes or cappuccino which is why it only dispenses a small amount of coffee, I suggest pressing the low button first, then put your pod in and press the button once again.
does anyone know if you can buy the Expressi machine in nz?
