NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio Automatic Play & Select Coffee Machine Piano Black by De'Longhi

No Mess, no Fuss. Just Great Coffee

Exclusive to NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO, our clever, easy-to-use pod system has been designed so you can enjoy coffee shop quality at home - whenever you want.

Customise your coffee the way you like it with NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO GENIO Automatic Play & Select. GENIO is playful yet powerful and with its maximum 15 bar pump pressure, creates your favourite drinks in a matter of seconds. The maximum 15 bar pressure pump is essential for delivering the golden crema that you get from coffee shop quality coffee.

The LED display and mouse wheel on the NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO Play & Select machines lets you tailor the length of your drink to just the way you like it. Use the recommendation on the pod or select the amount of water to use to suit your taste. The machine automatically stops at the selected level when done.

For maximum freshness, our coffee pods are sealed after the roast has been ground to deliver to you a delicious aroma and full flavour. And with a wide variety of roast & ground coffees, delicious hot chocolate drinks and coffee shop specialties you'll wonder how you ever coped without it.

Because the coffee grinds stay in the pod there is virtually no cleaning either.

With the GENIO Automatic Play & Select, your drink is ready in 3 simple steps.

1. Pop in a pod
2. Turn the mouse wheel to select to your taste or use the recommendation on the pod
3. Press the hot or cold button

Hey presto, your coffee, your way every time.

Our machines need virtually no cleaning, however a wipe down of the machine and rinse of the capsule holder every few weeks is recommended.

And remember to descale every 3-4 months or 900 uses, to keep your machine working at its best.

Each pod is made differently for the perfect drink

What Makes our Pods so Smart?

Inside every pod we use carefully selected ingredients. Then we add a little bit of technological magic. Different drinks need different amounts of pressure to release their full flavour. For example, an espresso needs high pressure to release that delicious coffee aroma and taste and milk needs less. So our clever little pods are designed to regulate the pressure so whichever drink you choose, it's made just the way it should be.

Create quality coffee with NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO

Over 25 Coffee Varieties to Choose From...

From long black Caffè Americano to frothy Latte Macchiato, steamy Hot Chocolate to Chai Tea Latte have your NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO your way.

This is around the same size as the smaller-of-the-range Dolce Gusto machines, on a par with the Piccolo model that I've had and used for the last two years. I wasn't sure about having an 'electronic' model, and admittedly the stupid, stupid instructions had me confused, but it was a doddle to operate. Additionally, this looks sleeker and classier than the manual Piccolo model, and will now take pride of place in my kitchen.

Don't bother trying to understand the operating instructions, which only have pretty useless diagrams and do the following:

Before first use, fill the container and place an empty mug under the drip spout. Turn on the machine, wait 30 seconds til the flashing red light on the side turns green, and then turn the dial in the middle of the top cover (located in between the blue 'cold' button and the red 'hot' button) to the top position (which allows max water to flow thru). Do not insert a drinks capsule, but do lower the handle mechanism and press the blue cold button and allow the mug to fill - all this is doing is rinsing out the mechanisms.

Then, select your drink: very handily, a small selection is supplied, each with a level of liquid indicated on the cover. Insert the pod into the drawer, press down to pierce, check there is enough water in the dispenser, then turn the middle dial to position 1-6, depending on which drink you want (see cover of pod), and when the water level on the top of the machine indicates that the correct amount of water will be dispensed through the pod - it 'lights up' to the selected level (like a levelscore indicator on an arcade machine!) in glowing green - just press the blue or red button, depending on whether it's a cold or hot drink you're preparing.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have had an almost identical Dolce Gusto machine for a couple of years and have been very happy with the espresso and americano coffee, while my wife will vouch for the hot chocolate. Yes, the supplies cost more than instant coffee, but it does taste a lot better and works out a lot cheaper than a very similar drink from a coffee shop. I particularly like being able to get a pretty decent coffee almost immediately instead of waiting ages for a filter machine to fill up a jug, and to just make one cup instead of a whole jug if all you want is one cup.

I think I prefer the taste of drinks from the Nespresso machines, but they do cost more, as do the cartridges, and refills for Dolce Gusto are a lot more easy to get hold of as they are stocked by all the main supermarkets.

The only small gripe I have had with my old machine is that it is manual: you have to control the amount of water yourself and can either make the drink too weak or strong, or could get distracted and overflow a cup. That problem is solved with this model which lets you select exactly the number of millilitres you need for a particular drink first. This was always a problem for me with the Lungo coffee because none of my cups is the right size and it was a matter using a cup that is too large and then trying to guess when to stop.

Yes you can make a better tasting coffee by buying an expensive brand of beans, griding them yourself and using an espresso machine but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this machine for a balance between quality, convenience and price. It is also versatile in being able to make lots of different types of drink, even if I do only really use it for straightforward espressos and americanos myself.

Despite initial problems in receiving a working model I am very happy with this machine.

It looks extremely stylish in my kitchen - modern and sleek. It is a good size too, unlike some coffee machines which I feel are quite big and unsightly.

The machine is very easy to use. You just fill it with water, turn it on, add a capsule and follow the guidance on how much water to use by using a little wheel on top of the machine.

It takes less than a minute to make a coffee.

There are lots of different coffee pods to try - the Caffe Americano has been our favourite so far. The vanilla latte is also rather tasty.

In conclusion I am very happy with this machine. It is much easier and quicker to use than a cafetiere and just as tasty.

Read loads of reviews about which coffee machine to buy and was not disappointed with this choice. Lovely coffee and so easy to make. The choice of flavours available is great although as I live in the Middle East I pay slightly over the odds for the pods but will research for cheaper prices online.

Basically this machine allows you to pop in your pods and select the amount of water you need the machine to dispense. The guide is written the pod itself in a bar display. There is a small wheel which you move up or down to move the electronic display and then you simply press the button for hot or cold drink. Its totally automatic and very quick. The machine switches itself off after a few minutes in case you forget to turn it off. If your selection is for a hot drink then rest assured that's exactly what you get, a steaming hot drink. Use latte clear glasses for a visually pleasing effect. I use flavoured syrups too added to the bottom of my glass. It's got an easy to cean drip tray and other than that there is not really any other cleaning needed. I have had my machine a month now and love it.

Only small negative point is the water reservoir is small but it's not a big problem unless all your household drink coffee...

In a nutshell a great buy for good variety of tasty coffees (and teas) as good as the coffee chains make.
