Oh Pooo!!!! So the Caffitaly capsules can work in the K-fee but not the other way around??? Is it really totally undoable??? Lets dissect a CBTL; how about member's non-working Americano, just to see the innards ; ) Also, on forums is mention of using Map capsules from officeworks (whatever that is) in Expressi brewers. The Map capsules are caffitaly, made for the Caffitaly MAP brewer which looks, almost.... if not.... exactly like the Kaldi. It seems the Map didn't go over very well in Europe. I invited the person who did the flicker 2 pages of photos-- capsules, drinks ,and on the second page he dissected the Expressi brewer -- to come over to the forum and talk to us. I'm curious why would any one want to take apart a good brewer??? If its dead on arrival, then ruling out the causes is necessary. All told the K-fee capsules aka Expressi do resemble the Ecaffe capsules; with the exception of the ridges. According to the poster of the flicker pictures, both are the same diameter and height.
So are the Lavazza Blue capsules and they use the same flow path as the K-Fee. The flow in the Caffitally system is bottom to top. The Lavazza and K-Fee are top to bottom. Look at where the filters are placed.
