Excellent value, well built, preformes fantastic

published

Easy to use, makes beautiful coffee (selection of beans is paramount). No breakdowns, no issues, can be a little noisy but no more than other machines. Value for money you can't do much better.

Purchased in November 2019 at ALDI for $315.00.

Great value and specifications, shamed it stopped working.

published

Purchased March 2020. Great machine and value, worked really well until it stopped November 2nd. Had the same problem as others, with the tray filling up with water. Visited maintenance manual and commenced descaling it. Followed the process to the letter of the law and at the end only had an occasional small trickle of water. Purchased some professional decaling fluid and repeated the process, no improvement. Returning it for a refund. Shame as there is nothing in its price range that matches its specifications.

Purchased in March 2020 at ALDI for $299.00.

Continually breaks

published

The machine lasted c 6 months before giving up. Between the amount of water excess in the tray requiring daily draining and the pressure issues stemming the flow of coffee

High hopes

published

It made five great coffees then it died. I really like it - solid, decent water storage, good solid S/S tamper the handle came with interchangeable cups - single or double. As far as I was concerned good quality for the $299 price tag. I was really disappointed as I had purchased it North Richmond, NSW to take back to remote WA. I sent it back and was given a refund straight away as there were no more coffee machines available. Now I'm looking for a replacement and there is not much out there I like - maybe a 2nd hand pro Expobar two station - had one before and it was great value for $1300.

No Good..

Coffee filter gets stuck to machine every time, the gap for the coffee cup is too small, making coffee shouldnt be messy. My old plastic $150 breville coffee machine is better.!!

Does what it says on the tin

published

Great value for money, haven't had any issues with it (only had it a day) makes a decent cup of coffee.
It's not going to compare to a $2K machine but it's great value for money.

Can be a bit slow compared to a pro kit
Has regular noise levels.

Filter basket gets stuck every single time!

published

The filter basket gets stuck Every Single Time. It's just really poorly designed. The suction holding the filter basket to the machine is so strong, the filter basket dislodges from the portafilter. I should not need to remove the filter basket by hand.

Will be returning this and getting a better designed espresso machine.

It sounds like your Aldi coffee machine has failed. After some research I discovered these machines are very unreliable. If it is still under warranty send it back. Or you could take it to the right specialist who might be able to fix it. The thermostat went on mine.
