5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Coffee!, 25 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto by Krups KP210640 Coffee Machine, Red, 15 Bar Pressure Pump (Kitchen & Home)
My new red Dolce Gusto arrived this morning. I've tried 4 of the varieties so far and I thought they were all really good.
I dismantled one pod to check that the coffee was really ground coffee and not instant. It's really fine ground coffee.

Some people have said their drink wasn't hot but mine was scolding hot - just how I like it.

The machine is quicker than the Senseo and even easier to clean. The construction is satisfyingly chunky and seems well made.
I loved all the little extras which came with it. The glass cup and the cup and saucer are good quality.

There's a pod bin to put in the used pods - The pods are very hot after use so it's as well to tip them in the pod bin until they're cool enough to put in the bin.

There's also a box of samples of the various kinds of coffee.

You add the coffee and then take the coffee pod out and add the milk one.
You decide how much of each gets added to the cup and this takes some getting used to but this does allow you to vary the proportions to suit your own taste. More milk and less coffee still works and still tastes really good.

Some people have complained about the sweet powdered milk in the milk pods but I don't think it's that bad. It's not that sweet and doesn't taste like any powdered milk I've ever had.
If you didn't like it you could just get the espresso pods and add hot milk seperately.
