Smallest variety of all capsules, also..
I had this machine for around two weeks now. I have descaled it and all.
It STRUGGLES to push liquid through a capsule now. EVERY capsule I put in, I end up needing to let it fall through, take it out of the soggy wet capsule bin, and attempt it all again.
When it's struggling, something pops and the liquid ends up being dispensed into the CAPSULE BIN.
Perfectly fine coffee, dripping into the bin.
At the time of releasing the failed capsule, all that back pressure gets let out at the nozzle, making coffee grinds explode inside the machine.
There isn't a reusable capsule either, other machines have stainless steel reusable capsules you can use to put your own grinds in.
Only good when the machine works
It's not the hottest coffee but nice to drink. Had this for 5 months and now only dispenses about 10ml and stops with pod or without and drips more into the pod collection container. Hardly used and not worth replacing with the same model just invest in a more expensive product and get more life out of it and a greater range of options for pod flavours.
Machine does not puncture capsules.
Have two machines, both have failed within days of each other. The plastic disc that punctures the capsules (when the handle is closed) has failed. Rang the helpline; there are no spare parts available.
purchased from woolworths around two weeks ago, worked fine first few times. hasnt worked properly since. Water runs through fine,but coffee does not. Three pods put through and get a few dribbles,sometimes just weak coffee water dribble.will be returng for a refund.
Easy and Quiet
Coffee is yummy, and the machine is so quiet I can make a coffee and not wake the kids!! Its easy to refill and reminds you when need to fill it reminds you when its full and so easy to clean.
What a great little coffee machine:-)
I had no idea how this tiny coffee machine worked when I got this for free by purchasing 6 boxes of espressotoria capsules promotion. What a great decision I made, was surprised how easy to use & incredibly I'm enjoying supreme taste of coffee daily, just like drinking from a good coffee shop. No regrets as this coffee machine never fails to deliver from day one, not a capsule is wasted. I am giving this review with all honesty as I am very happy owning a tiny coffee machine but works as good as $1000+++ coffee machines.
***NOTE*** I have this wonderful little coffee machine for more than 5 years already & use it nearly everyday, still working perfectly as I am writing this review.
Just had my first cup. Got some of the wrong pods, so initially was bummed.
Did have some of the right ones in Italian Roast, fired up its milk frother accessory. Best cup ive had outside the states.
Coffee into pod waste tray
Only had coffee machine for 3 months, can't get water through pod. Most or all into pod waste tray. Cleaned regularly as recommended. Emailed Vittoria and still waiting for reply.
Purchased in December 2019.
Makes great coffee. Had it for years. Highly recommend.
My first machine leaked from the bottom but customer service was brilliant and they replaced it pronto. Love that I can buy the pods from Coles and Woolworths as no Nespresso store around here. Love the flavour of the coffee as well, and I class myself as a coffee snob.
Nice machine just doesn't get the coffee hot enough
Woolworths recently had a deal where if you purchased 6 packs of Vittorio capsule coffee you received a $99 dollar coffee pod machine for free. So we thought why not?
Makes a great cup of coffee in no time and as long as you enjoy it black it stays hot. I like cream with mine and find I have to zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds to bring it up to heat. I don't want to go out and purchase the milk frother that is available because that is $60 and I don't drink milk.
Vittorio capsules has one of my favourite coffees, ORO and all the flav...our comes through just like the beans in my plunger so I am happy about that. The machine doesn't leak, no stuck, broken capsules, has a 1 litre water tank, automatic capsule remover, heats in 30 seconds and a pretty good machine for no cost. Only one problem the machine is not compatible with other capsule but that is to be expected because they want you to purchase their coffee. Good thing I love Vittorio coffee.
Coffee pours into pod catch tray
13 month old, Capino machine dumps two thirds of the coffee from the pod into the pod catch tray and only a third into the cup. Works fine during the cleaning process but not with pod inserted.
Capino machine failure, 10 months old!
10 month old Capino machine, now pours all coffee into the pod catch tray. Works fine during the cleaning process but not with pod inserted. No receipt or box so no hope of a refund or replacement.
Can't buy quality anymore!!
Purchased in January 2019 for $100.00.
I absolutely love my coffee machine. Its easy to use and easy to clean. It makes my morning rush that bit easier as I can get a nice cup going with the press of a button and make my lunch at the same time. The pods taste great and have a reasonable selection, could do with some more though.

Yet another thumbs down for pod not being pierced. Vittoria, if it isn't addressed, the avalanche of complaints is going to rival the avalanche of machines in landfill. So sad.
..I bought this machine and was SO excited as always loved Vittoria Coffee. What a disaster of a machine. Cant get it fixed in NZ. only got 6 months out of this machine. Just wish I could go to somewhere to make them accountable or even get it fixed. Tried just and expensive phone call to Australia for nothing. Dont buy this machine it was rubbish. :-(((( Lovely Coffee when it worked. Not consistent. A rubber ring has gone it seems.
Purchased in March 2018 for $80.00.
Frustrating to use
Most of the coffee ends up in the waste pod reservoir on at least 2 out of three tries. Very frustrating and wasteful. There are no refillable pods available for this machine and only a limited range of coffee. I wouldn't buy this make again. Planning to replace asap.
Purchased in July 2019.

Excellent for what we want
We usually drink plunger coffee but were recently introduced to espresso coffee. It is excellent if I am on my own or my wife just wants a short black. We like all of the coffees available although the tastes don't seem to vary very much. The coffee is quite hot enough and never tastes burnt or bitter. I should mention that we received the coffee machine gratis after purchasing 8 packets of pods during a promotion.
Purchased in December 2018 at Woolworths Bega.

Good range of coffee
The quality of the coffee belonging to the Espressotoria range is above average. There is a wide range of coffee pods to choose from which can be bought online or from your local grocery store like Coles and Woolworths. The machine is simple to use and makes the perfect coffee every time.
This machine is quiet, perfect temp for coffee, coffee selection and taste is delish...and love the milk frother you can add to the machine great addition to the machine....love it!!!!

The machine is not piecing the pods and water is going straight into the pod holder ?
