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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
The machine will dispense the right amount of water for the drink selected, then if the 'creamer' pod needs to be inserted, just follow the same steps. If you want less water in your drink, simply pressing any button stops water coming through, before the allotted amount is dispensed. With this machine, even if you walk away and forget you're making a drink, there will be no spills, as long as your mug is big enough for the drink you want, as only the right amount of liquid comes through before the machine goes into economy/sleep mode.
The bit where the drink sits can be adjusted to different heights, depending on how tall the mug is; this bit is also easier to remove for cleaning than on the Piccolo model. A word of advice - remove the pods straight away, and rinse out the pod holder if there is spillage, as leaving a pod in can cause the holder to become jammed. A couple of times, I have left the pod in by mistake, and then the holder has been hard to pull out, and has needed gentle manipulation.
Overall, this is excellent and value for money at the amazon price. Whilst I've always been happy with the drinks from my Piccolo, this machine has made me realise that I've been diluting some more than I needed, and the drinks are better. I didn't think I'd part with my Piccolo model, but there's a new guy in town!
As for the machine itself, it is very simple to use, extremely stylish. You receive a few sample pods with the machine to try out. The coffee is very good quality, but does only make very small glasses. For example, the Cafe lungo pods which I used to make a black coffee, only gives about 2 inches in a mug - you could just use 2 pods but obviously this ups the cost of a coffee! I have also tried out the latte pods and found these to be very nice, but again quite small portions.
Overall a very exciting purchase and I'm enjoying making different coffees for guests rather than just handing them a cup of instant!
