Wanting a dose of caffeine without the fuss? A capsule coffee machine may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Coffee capsule machines have been a gamechanger for many Aussie households, making quality espresso beverages at home possible. Learn how to spot yours.

How does a capsule coffee machine work?

Capsule (or pod) coffee machines are the most popular espresso machines purchased in Australia. They are compact and easy to use. Instead of measuring out (and grinding) coffee grounds, capsule coffee machines use single serve pods or capsules that contain hermetically sealed coffee grounds to brew the coffee. When you place the capsule in the machine it will automatically pierce the seal on the capsule and run a pre-set volume of hot water through the coffee grounds inside to produce the espresso. Coffee capsules and pods come in a variety of different flavours, blends and strengths to suit a wide range of tastes.


Different machines and brands will use different capsules, so when you are shopping for a new capsule coffee machine you should check to make sure you like the blends and flavours that are compatible with that machine. You’ll find however that most coffee capsules fit most machines, with many capsules for example compatible with the popular Nespresso capsule coffee machines.


Capsule coffee machines take up very little bench space and can produce multiple servings quickly, with minimal clean-up (simply remove the used pod or capsule and throw it away).

How do you clean a capsule coffee machine?

Another advantage of a capsule coffee machine is they are relatively easy to clean and maintain. The two main cleaning tasks you will be doing are descaling and flushing out the brewing chamber.


All coffee machines need to be descaled regularly using descaling liquid. Capsule machines should be descaled once every 3-6 months depending on the type of water being used. Minerals found in water get deposited inside the lines, pipes, pump and boiler. If these aren’t cleaned out regularly it can lead to water blockages and stop your machine from working properly. Using filtered water in your machine can help reduce this build-up and make descaling easier.


Flushing out the brewing chamber will require a cleaning capsule, which uses a soft detergent to remove coffee granules and residual oils. Some products combine a descaler and cleaner in one. This should be done every 1-4 weeks depending on machine use.


Capsule machines with milk frothing capabilities should have these components cleaned after each use. You should also clean the drip tray and water tank every day. Remember to refer to your user manual for the cleaning and maintenance requirements of your machine.

Are capsule coffee machines bad for the environment?

Along with the running costs using disposable coffee capsules or pods (still cheaper than store bought coffee), there is also the environment to consider. The pods themselves are made from either strong aluminium or plastic, depending on the brand. If these are thrown out in general waste then they will end up in landfill, where they will take hundreds of years to break down.


Thankfully, there are some solutions to this issue. There are many brands producing biodegradable pods and some brands have also set up collection points so that their pods can be reused and recycled.


Some brands are also making refillable stainless steel pods, which can be refilled with coffee grounds of your choice. These are great if you want the option for more blends and are cheaper than buying new, single-use pods. This will require a small amount of extra cleaning after each use but will help you save on coffee and waste. If you are considering biodegradable or reusable pods, you should make sure that the machine you buy will be compatible with these options.

What is the best capsule coffee machine for me?

Besides a quick shot of espresso, some can also make cappuccinos and lattes at the touch of a button with either a built-in milk frother like some of the Nespresso Breville capsule coffee machines, or an accompanying milk frothing unit. Some will have either a single-serve or a multi-serve milk jug or container. For models without, you could always opt to purchase a milk frother separately.


Consider the Bar Pump Pressure of the model you’re keen on, with many quality options with a 15-19 Bar pressure – perfect for creating full bodied and aromatic espresso. You’ll also find that most machines come with lights to alert you when it’s time to descale, empty the capsule drawer, or to refill the water tank.


Also keep the cost and variety of pods or capsules in mind. The price varies, but it is more expensive than buying coffee beans for use with a manual or automatic coffee machine. Although capsule coffee machines are relatively cheaper to buy, their running costs will be higher. Consider how cheaply you can buy pods that are compatible with a machine before buying.


Aesthetics wise, capsule machines look great on the kitchen bench with various sizes and colours to choose from - even in stylish red like the Lavazza Smeg capsule coffee machines in the popular 1950’s retro aesthetic.
