5.0 out of 5 stars Great machine 1 Dec 2006
Whenever I use coffee beans they go stale and lose their flavour before I use it all.I bought this with expectations of a machine that would probably not produce much flavour but would be quick and useful and I was impressed with the demonstration that I saw in store. It looks funky and seemd easy to use. It didn't disappoint- it is a great system. The coffee is hot, flavoursome and it is so easy and quick to use. Excellent cappucinos especially. I would definitely recommend it.

I was given this machine a few days ago and, as a bit of a coffee snob, was prepared not to like coffee made from "pods".
I was pleasantly surprised. It's fun to use and makes a very decent espresso. My only gripe is that I gave up drinking sugar in my tea and coffee when I was a child so the sweetened milk pods for the cappucino and latte macchiato came as a shock.
I hope the manufacturer responds to customer feedback and provides an alternative milk pod for the very many coffee drinkers without a sweet tooth.
If these pods existed already I would have given the machine five stars.

I thought I'd try this machine as it has more variety of coffee i.e. cappuccino, latte etc. I already own a philips senseo, but it doesnt do varied styles/sizes like this.

The dolce gusto is easy to use, easy to clean and very quick. You can have your coffee ready in no time, even if you're one of these people who rushes about in the morning!

The latte macchiato and the cappuccino are very nice, and included in the free starter pack are a latte glass and coffee cup/saucer which are handy.

I havent tried the espresso as yet, but I'm not really an espresso person so I'll leave that for someone else to comment on.

Well worth the money in my opinion!

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge success & great value! 23 Jun 2007
I bought this machine on the strength of the many other excellent reviews from customers clearly much more expert than me about coffee machines. I am adding this review to say that if you're like me (i.e. a complete idiot in the kitchen), but want superb coffee, instantly with no hassle or effort, this is the machine for you. If I can work it, anyone can!

All the coffee pod selections are delicious namely cappucino, espresso, lunghi (double espresso), latte, Chococino (hot chocolate). Unlike many rival machines, the coffee emerges piping hot and the pods are easily available from supermarkets. It even can do cold drinks such as Cappucino Ice, which is coming soon. Also, it's so easy to use and clean. If you've been confused & somewhat depressed by very mixed reports on other machines, go for this without hesitation. It comes ready to go out of the box with a starter pack with cheaper, better drinks than coffee bars in your own home! Best money I've spent in a long time.

PS I'm not sure if this says more about me than is wise but the machine passes what an old pal of mine used to call the 'hangover test' with flying colours: i.e. you can stagger into the kitchen at an ungodly hour and with bleary eyes & shaky hands, make professionally delicious & reviving coffee in seconds!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great machine with some minor flaws 6 Mar 2008
By Arynth VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I'd been agonising over whether or not I could justify spending a good amount on a coffee machine for quite some time before I eventually bought this. The price was what sealed the deal (about £60 - I have no idea why it's suddenly leapt up in price again).

I haven't regretted it.

It's easy to set up. You wash a couple of parts (the included cups and the pod-holder etc.). The machine "warms up" in about 30 seconds and it's ready to instantly boil the water (and it does it well). In fact it's delightful that when I don't want coffee I can instantly get boiled water for my tea.

The pods are easy to use and come in surprisingly few flavours (which is a shame). My favourite so far is the Cafe Lungo (which reminds me of Arabic/Turkish coffee). One of the previous reviews had it spot on when the author commented that the milk pods are too sweet. I'm perfectly capable of adding sugar (or in my case sweetener) to taste thank you Krups/Nes Cafe.

The pods are also surprisingly difficult to get. My local Sainsbury's only stocks one flavour (Cappacino) and many of the machine's stockists (eg Argos) only sell the machines. I imagine there's probably a good licensing reason for this (ie not licensed to sell coffee/consumables), but it is annoying none-the-less.

Luckily the Dolce Gusto website is easy to use and you can order your coffee from there. At £3 for 16 pods (which is effectively eight cups if you're going for any of the flavours with milk) it's still a little pricey compared to the regular kettle, milk and instant/ground beans. And the reward scheme is a little thin. 300 points is enough to get you one box of pods but you'll have to buy 15 boxes of pods (£45) to achieve that sum.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Variety and Less Sugar Please! 23 Dec 2008
First the positives...Its a good looking (well I think so!), well designed device. Small in size, but with a nice large water container, and simple enough for anyone to use. The black coffee is very good, the espresso particularly so, being thick and creamy - just about perfect. It also heats up very quickly, meaning you don't have to wait around before enjoying your coffee.

The not so good... the cup tray splashes quite a lot when using it, and there is no auto shut off on the device, which means you need to guess how much of each capsule to put in a drink (can be tricky in bigger cups, meaning you get watery drinks...)

The downright annoying... Sugar! Lots of it! Why? I would far rather have the choice to add sugar or not, but Dolce Gusto seem to insist that lots of sugar is essential for anything involving a milk capsule. The latte is just bearable, but the cappucino is unbelievably sweet. I suspect that their use of dried milk powder in the capsules means that it tastes unpleasant without the added sugar. Which is a shame. Other instant machines manage to use liquid based capsules, and these taste far superior in my opinion.

So, to summarise, if you just like espressos / black coffee, then its not a bad machine. Or if you like lots of sugar in your coffee, and don't mind the slightly synthetic taste of dried milk powder, again its ok - but if you like a decent cappucino and want to decide yourself how much sugar to add, look elsewhere!
