The Espressotoria® System is a premium coffee capsule system is designed to make true Italian-style espresso.
Producing cafe quality coffee at the press of a button through innovative capsule design and precision piercing technology. A high-pressure system, featuring an eco-friendly energy saver mode and a 1-year warranty making it perfect for the home, office or commercial environment.
When the machine is left idle, it will switch to energy saver mode, indicated by a solid green light. To exit the machine from energy saver mode, simply press the solid green light espresso button which will prompt the machine to commence pre-heating as explained above.
During the piercing extraction process, water fills the capsule making it expand. Please wait a moment after extraction before ejecting the capsule. This allows time for the capsule to return to its original volume. If after this the capsule remains stuck, try the ejection motion again and do not use your fingers to help it along.
Flashing blue lights indicate the machine is pre-heating. Pre-heating occurs when the machine is turned on or when it exits the energy saver mode. Once the heating process is complete, the two flashing blue espresso dispensing buttons will stop flashing and become solid blue. This means the machine is now ready to use.
We are committed to ensuring sustainability throughout our operations and we recognise the need for an environmentally responsible approach to both the manufacture of our products, as well as the recyclability thereof.
The design of the Espressotoria® capsule in conjunction with our clever extraction system allows us to use a capsule shell weighing just 0.7 grams per unit. This makes the Espressotoria ®capsule one of the lightest weight aluminium free capsules currently in the market. Furthermore, the shells are made from Polypropylene #5, a plastic which is commonly recycled by most material recycling facilities in Australia*.
After extraction, peel off the lid and remove the used ground coffee (caution, allow capsule to cool downfirst in order to avoid risk of scalding). The used ground coffee can actually be an excellent addition to a compost pile. The grinds provide bacteria with the energy they need to turn organic matter into compost.
We do not rate our coffee blends on strength as strength can often be confused with quality and can be very subjective.
However, strength can sometimes be indicated by roast profile where a darker roasted coffee will typically offer a stronger flavour than a lighter roast. As a guide to strength, our core blends from strongest to mildest would be:
- Mountain Grown - Espresso - Oro - Organic - Italian
We recommend using these suggestions as a guide only.
Please note that there are two types of Vittoria Coffee Capsules:
- Those that are compatible with the Espressotoria® System.
- These can be identified with an Espressotoria® logo located on the bottom right corner of the box.
- 12 capsules per box.
Those that are compatible with Nespresso** Machines.
These can be identified with a ‘Compatible with Nespresso** Machines’ located on the bottom of the box.
10 capsules per box.
Please note that both these types of capsules are different in shape and size. You cannot use the capsules for the machines they are not manufactured for. For example, you cannot use Espressotoria® Capsules in a Nespresso** Machine and you cannot use Nespresso** Compatible Capsules in an Espressotoria Machine.
