    Default Caffitaly / Woolies coffee machine???

    Awesome!! Please do!

    I guess I just really want to know if the coffee is any good - Woolworths Select, or if the pods are interchangeable??

    There's a similar deal at Coles and their machines use either the Coles brand pods or Gloria jeans pods. I'm picky with my coffee generally but for home use I'm just after a strong decent tasting flat white. So I might give it a go and not bother with the frother. Can't afford it for another week boohoo! But I'll come back with a review after I've tried it!

    I bought the pods from woolies as they fit into my nespresso machine and have to say I don't like the coffee. It's a harsh flavor, doesn't go down well and it's very strong, even the milder ones.

    TBH, I'd rather spend the money on an aldi machine, my friend has one and I much prefer t hat coffee over the woolies one. Or then get a nespresso one.

    But that's just me, I'm very selective/picky when it comes to coffee.

    Thanks Coffee!!! You really must be the right person to ask!!

    So if woolies pods fit your nespresso......then maybe nespresso pods fit woolies machine and I WIN!!!

    I just don't want to be stuck with a machine that has sh!t flavour coffee.

    Dh will flip if I ended up buying two

    I got all excited to see a delonghi in coles the other day for $110 - but then I realised it works on a dual pod system with one pod of coffee and one pod of powdered milk. No thanks.

    I don't think so. She was drinking a dandelion brew! But she did say the frother was awesome.

    I personally also don't like the Gloria Jeans coffee, can't stomach it.

    I guess it depends on how much you're willing to spend and how easily you want to get access to your coffee.

    With the Nespresso machine, you have to order capsules online or in Store but there aren't that many shops around (our closest is in the City and we're about 40 min out) and they are quite expensive, around .60 per coffee. While the Adi machine is cheaper in every aspect and there are heaps more shops around than Nespresso.
    If we didn't already have a nespresso one, I'd probably go for an Aldi one, as their coffee is almost as good.

    I can't stand Gloria Jeans coffee, it's too bitter and harsh for my liking but everyone is different.

    It would also depend on what flavours/strength the woolies/coles machines have, the nespresso and Aldi range is decent, so you'll def. find something to match your tastebuds.
