    Default Aldi pod coffee machine

    Hi all

    Just wondering if anybody had an aldi pod coffee machine and what you think of it. Hubby has been talking about getting a machine for agrees but won't buy one for himself. I can't justify spending so much on a Nespresso when we're having a baby in June but would like to treat him for Christmas if it's worth it!

    I have one and I love it :-) some say that the coffee isn't as nice as nespresso but I find it just as nice.

    The aldi machines apparently take the nespresso pods anyway :-)

    Hi there
    we bought one for xmas last year, thinking if we can prove it isn't just another appliance to sit on the counter, and actually gets used then we'll buy a 'real' one like a nespresso Its fantastic! No need to upgrade to a nespresso, we are loving this one. AND it comes with hot choc and chai's now (so in my pregnant state I can still enjoy the machine).
    The milk frother has a non-stick coating and lately its been leaving a film on the bottom that requires more than just a rinse, but at 12 months old and at $20 I'm buying a new one.
    I dont think you can go wrong with it....great present idea.

    I cannot speak from personal experience, but I've seen and heard lots of good feedback on the Aldi machine

    Default Aldi pod coffee machine

    Yep. Ours is a year old and great.

    While we're on the subject though... Does anyone else notice the chocolate pods smell? I was thinking it must be the sugar in them making it "rot"?
    I've cleaned it all and can still smell something?
    Any tips?

    I'll keep a 'nose' out for it, Is it when its sitting in the bin area after being brewed? I've been emptying mine out daily and putting the machine away (joys of an open house for selling) perhaps thats why I haven't noticed.

    I've found the chocolate pods leave a sludge in the drain/drip catchment thingy bit

    We borrowed one while our Jura was getting a service and I thought it was pretty average. Not bad, but not great. That could just be because we're used to our own machine though. Most people I know who have the aldi one are relatively happy.

    On reflection I'd say it's value for money. I think they're under $100 aren't they? I dont think I'd expect more than what I got for that.

    Hmm, I thought mine was a bit flimsy, maybe I've got a faulty one? The lever sometimes pushes the pod right through instead of punching holes in it, it always leaks water everywhere and the coffee doesn't come out in a clear ******, it kind of spurts and sprays a bit (I have tried cleaning and descaling)...
