Great small coffee maker
I bought this machine at Woolworths for $119.00 and I am quite impressed for its ease of use. It comes with the best instruction manual I have seen in ages. Every step is clearly explained with pictures. The machine can be programmed for individual quantities. Instructions are given on how to put it back to factory setting. With the very detailed and easy to use instruction manual comes a "Quick Start Guide" with a "menu" and instructions on how to make different beverages, from an "Espresso" to "Iced Chocolate". The machine also has a tea sett...ing, for which tea capsules have to be used. (Personally, I find boiling the kettle for a cup of tea easier). Coffeebrands for this machine include: Gloria Jeans, Grinders, Moccoona, and Woolworths Brand which I quite like. Having used a plunger and now the machine, the machine definitely beats the plunger for taste. Only "Caffitaly" brands must be used with this machine. I think this may be due to the size of the pods and probably applies to all of these types of coffee makers. Cleaning: Very easy, with all parts easily removed. Instructions on how to rinse the machine to remove coffee grinds are given. I use the rinse cycle twice, i.e. until the water runs clear. Capacity: 1 litre, which is not a lot, but it is easy and quick to refill.
Great Coffee Machine
Great little machine that prepares great coffee for you whenever you want. Obvious, eh? Highly recommended for its efficiency. I have been using this for now one year and never have had any issues with it. No need to searching google for nice coffee shops when always make one at home.
Does the job
Easy to use machine. Got it cos it had the cheapest pods at the local Woolworths. Coffee pod selection is good. Only problem is the light saying it needs descaling won't go off after doing same. But who cares???? Also bought it on sale which appears to happen pretty often so wait until a sale comes before buying.
Value for money
I've purchased a range of brands of coffee machines over the past few years and prefer Caffitaly as the pods are larger (12g) compared to the standard (8g). The water also heats up hotter than competing brands like Nespresso. Often you can find the machines for half price at Woolworths so it's definitely value for money :)
No spare parts in Australia
I have 3 machines,all have leaking pod washers, cannot buy them in Australia & Caffitaly don't carry spare parts .
3 useless machines! Caffitaly told me to send them my machine and they would forward them to Italy.
It is easy to replace the rubber O ring , worth a couple of dollars .
Not bad, does what its design to do
Great little machine for your coffee fixes. Uses Caffitaly pods,
Depends on how fussy you are about your coffee, When you consider all the energy and effort that you need to put in to some coffee machines this is a little beauty. Cleaning the machine is pretty quick, Making a coffee is pretty quick. I can say I am happy with the coffee pod verities out there too.

Excellent for the money
I bought this machine in Woolworths for $79.It doesn’t take up a lot of space on the counter and a selection of pods are readily available.It is easy to use and clean and makes a nice cup of coffee.It may not suit someone who is a coffee buff but for anyone who just wants a decent coffee quickly,this is the machine.
i shop at woolworths so i buy theyre brand of pods and gloria jeans when they are on special, makes a quick cup of coffee in the morning which tastes great. machine is easy to use and clean with a descaler. cheap coffee machine when on special with a good range of pods to use in it.
Bargain machine that makes excellent coffee. Small range of pods available but they are well priced and provide a good variety. We normally buy Mr Barista pods which are very nice. Return policy by Woolworths for our previous S21 mach was excellent. I rate this S24 machine better than our previous Nesspresso machine. Overall highly recommended.

Had to take it back
I have an old S14 which has been fabulous, but is starting to give problems, so I went and bought an S24 on sale - Very good value at $79.
It was fine for a few days then leaked water, and stopped piercing the capsules at all after the third day (wasted several!).
I took it back to Woolworths who immediately offered a replacement or to refund. I chose the latter and they refunded my purchase without question. I would need to think again before risking another one at this stage.
Noisy unstable machine
Bought this machine today instead of an espresso it's noisy I don't like how the water compartment doesn't seal,it continually drips after making a coffee. Very disappointed ! Save your money and buy a decent machine. its very noisy, not stable at all so so disapppointed. I can't even take it back as my husband bought it as a gift for me
This machine was a gift and greatly appreciated. It is easy and quick to use, producing top quality coffee. There are many flavours, brands and strengths to select, all reasonably priced. My only complaint is that the coffee can be a little cooler than it should be. I overcome that by heating the cups with boiling water while the machine is heating (it takes 30 seconds). A main advantage is that you can pre-select the amount of coffee you want in your cup.
Questions & Answers
Anyone know why there is coffee granules coming out into my coffee?
Cafitali coffee machine water comes out but not coffee. Any suggestions
Do you have a Cafitaly 24 in stock ,ours has just broke after 3 years and would like to buy another one thank you .
Hello...if you like that brand try woolies as this is where you could purchase but I would not recommend the product as it's poor quality it will brake down unless it's improved over time
I am also currently a disgruntled user of the S24 model, having used a Caffitali machine about 10 years! Descaled it twice in the two weeks and again it’s burning the coffee and putting granules in my morning cup. Not happy!!! Bought this machine from my local Woolworths Store just ~12 months ago!
