3.0 out of 5 stars A new toy for the kitchen..., 16 Jan. 2011

This review is from: NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto by Krups KP210640 Coffee Machine, Red, 15 Bar Pressure Pump (Kitchen & Home)
Bought this as a christmas gift to ourselves following a recommendation from our friend. To be fair the coffee is lovely as you would expect from Nescafe, however it is cool enough to drink straight away even for the children!!

It seems to be a bit gimicky to me. You have a great selection of different coffees available to use with it (and even a hot chocolate which is delicious). The drinks work out about 45p each which is far cheaper than a starbucks or costa, but not as cheap as making a delicious fresh filter coffee (which I am still inclined to do since buying the Dolce Gusto). Some samples are provided with the machine, the flavours are provided in 'pods' that slot into the machine. I feel the pods are wasteful as they are only single use and then are binned and most drinks need 2 different pods (milk plus coffee/chocolate). We tend to recycle most of our waste so feel the plastic waste is quite excessive (hence only 3 stars).

On the whole we probably wouldn't buy it again, but the children have enjoyed it a lot. Now begs the question 'where on earth do we keep it when not in use...?'. Enjoy :)
