Bought this machine because I love Grinders coffee and had and older model that has just gone on and on.
I purchased on the 7th May 2020 and have just received it 3/06/2020. Was only suppose to take 10 days to get to me, after 15 days I made a phone call I was told I would have another 10 day wait because either it hadn't been delivered to the courier or it had gone missing in transit? Finally arrived today got excited as have been struggling for the last 4 weeks!! Set it up turned it on pressed the blue button to flush it with fresh water ...
Purchased in May 2020 for A$299.00.
have a problem that prevents further use
I had about a week of no problems and now for some reason the coffee dispenses into the coffee pod reservoir and not the cup, I am wasting a lot of capsules because I cant find out what the problem is, tried resetting but made no difference
Review of Caffitaly Coffee Machine S12 Velocissimo
I purchased this machine on a recommendation from a friend.
It is not expensive nor are the pods I used.
It makes a creamy coffee with a layer of cream that sits on top of the pod coffee which makes it taste so good. The machine itself is quite bulky and I did have a bit of trouble descaling it and the instructions where a bit difficult to follow but overall it produces a high quality taste equal to café coffee and is easy to use.
Purchased in January 2018 for A$150.00.
Fantastic coffee machine at a reasonable price,
This is a brilliant machine!
I have had mine for three years now and never had any problems with it!
What I love most about it are the many functions available for a very reasonable price and the fact that I don’t require a seperate milk frother, as the machine has one incorporated!
Cant get a milk jug so no milk no coffee
I have got a s22 coffee machine i have had 2 milk jug and they have both cruck and i can not get one i am not very happy with the Machine so i and going to get throw it out. I will never by a Caffitaly machine again. Thank you i will tell people about this so they dont waste there money.
- Verified purchase
Going strong for 4 years now
I bought this as a birthday present to myself years ago and it still gets daily use. My only issue is that the descaling feature never ever completes properly and I have to do a quick factory reset to finish the job. The coffee itself is quite satisfactory and I always get a compliment on my coffee.
Great little machine
Very easy to use even for a non savy person like me had no problems except the plastic tubing for the milk froffer went down the sink so had to find out how to get a replacement but found out on their website so that made that easy found out price and product information
You get what you pay for.
The machine itself is very easy to use. I just find it that the measurement for a full tall glass of coffee and milk is not enough. When I want a tall glass of coffee with milk, I have to press the tall milk button again to fill up my cup. There's a huge range of coffee pods as well, but okay tasting one for me is the moccona branded ones. The other ones are just bad as instant coffee so why use a pod system.
The milk container is only enough for maybe 2 standard cups. And the flip holder doesn't even fit a standard size mug.
It was on sa...le on Woolworths when we purchased it. Only used it for 6 months and never been touched again as instant coffee (Moccona) is a less hassle to make in the morning. Less waste as well with the coffee pods made of lots of plastic.
Working great since Dec 2016.
Nice All in One simple activation machine for consistent hot cappucino c Hot milky Chocolate too.
Ubiquitous Caffitaly Pods (CPs) available from multiple diff companies ie Moccona, MAP, Mr Barista (Coles), Gloria Jean also
Shame we can't get our fav. beans ground n podded up. too many internal bits inside pods to DIY. We like Genoese. CP Coffees comparable to problematic DeLonghi Prima Donna machine (Italian $1500 and Always needed costly fixing... we just won't go DeLonghi anymore!)
However v little residue/ sludge comes out compared to AL...
Caffitaly S22 coffee machine
I have used the Caffitaly S22 coffee machine for 3 years. I bought it at Woolworths on a special and have not had one disappointing cup of coffee. The capsules are always available. It is so easy to keep clean, takes up little space on my kitchen bench. I am useless with machines but this has been a pleasure to use.
Okay Machine, Capsules are a plastic waste
The Machine makes a good cupmof coffee in a reasonable amount of time.
Occasionally the pods wouldn't get punched properly by the machine and would get stuck. I would need a lot of force to open the machine and get them back out again.
The milk container has many parts to wash, if you don't wash it every time it gwtsucg harder to clean.
The plastic capsules are a big waste.
Great coffee machine
I had use different type of coffee machine all these years and found these machine is remarkable.
Pods are easily found in woolies and coles with affordable price and variety from different brands. And these machine has been working fine everyday for two years apart from some de-scaling issue which need to be done over time.
Milk compartment can be easily detached and store in the fridge after use but cleaning it needs a bit of work unless you are going to use another milk frother(somehow you still have to clean it too...unless you don't ...clean at all and that is a YUCK!) Overall, great machine with affordable price and pods are easily found with big variety from many brands. You just need to choose the right coffee pods that suit you.
We use this machine at least 3 times a day sometimes up to 10! We vary between the Woolworths brand strong coffee and hubby likes the Gloria Jeans strong one! Both tast amazing! Extremely easy to use. If we do not use all of the milk from the frother we just remove it from the machine and put in the fridge until next coffee break. Extremely easy to clean with tablets or the liquid.
- Compatible with lots of other pods.
- Easy to use.
- Relatively inexpensive.
- Decent amount of water storage.
- Easy access to spare parts on Caffitaly website.
- Frustrating to clean as there are lots of small components.
- The milk isn't very hot. ...
Very good and affordable
I am using this coffee machine 2 years I bought from Woolworths special christmas prize it was $99.- at the moment my mug front of me drinking my beautiful decaf coffee with listening my husband complementary about the coffee I made from Caffitaly S22. First of all I learnt how to use it. Never use any other brands! If you used accidentally clean very carefully, I used 1.75 mm crochet hook :D. Then 3 glass of tea water cleaned perfectly. I use one capsule first of mag with milk then I put an other glass to use the same capsule for a cup of ...coffee with milk end up with cleaning milk button and add my mug and sprinkle Nesquik (not the others please) woolworths have very nice price and a big range of Caffitaly capsules. I am very happy with this coffee machine.
Not to bad
Not worth it for the price a lot better options out there. Only bonus is there’s a lot of different brand pods that fit the machine. Pretty easy to operate and to clean. Would recommend researching options and variants prior to purchase as you’ll se what suits your needs best
couldn't live without our Caffitaly coffee machine.
Love the taste of the coffee and the excellent milk frother attached to the machine. Would have preferred a larger water tank but the ease of use outweighs this issue. The manual is very informative and easy to follow and I find cleaning is a breeze if you follow the manual instructions.
Love the range of pods that can be use in this
We have had this machine since Sep 2016, I love the fact that you can use so many different brands of pod with it. Something is always on special which makes it reasonably cheap. It's pretty simple to clean, the biggest downfall on this machine would be that it doesn't quite make the milk hot enough, so you always have just a warm coffee! Aside from that the coffee is nice, and it froths the milk well.
Awesome coffee machine massive selection of different brands of coffee to use and tastes awesome. So quick and easy to use we even bought my mum one and she uses it every single day. Love the helpful cleaning system makes it so easy to keep in good condition.
Very simple to use just read instructions first.
This product is good but has a fault.
This product was the one I got I made a mistake when I did my first product review. This machine had a fault when I first got it, it broke down the first time the descaling light came on, I put the descaling coupling on but it didn't work, it stopped working altogether so had to take it back, I discovered that the descaling coupling was not long enough, the pin was too short so it wouldn't work, I glued another piece on to it and have had no more problems, I did notify the company but not sure if they corrected it, have had no problems since.
Questions & Answers
I have not use the machine (s22) for more than a year since I lost the absolution tube. Now when I start to use it,when I switch it on, there is a power indicator lit but the rest of the buttons is not functioning. I tried press one of the button but nothing happen. What seems to be the problem?
