Top customer reviews
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 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.
Another little niggle is the staggering number of pods you'll eventually go through and its impact on the environment (all the pods are plastic). It does make me feel a little guilty when discarding the pods.
Overall the combination of price, great-tasting coffee and the fact that it seems to be one of the better entry-level machines on the market (my sister has owned more than one and she seems to favour this one), means that this is a great buy and a good addition to any kitchen/office.
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!
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!
