4.0 out of 5 stars Good - Almost great!, 17 Jan. 2011
This review is from: NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Piccolo Manual Coffee Machine by Krups - Red (Kitchen & Home)
Frankly, I bought this to make use of an Amazon voucher. I didn't have a 'craving' for a coffee machine. However, now that it has taken up residence in the kitchen I've grown quite fond of it. It's sturdy and well made, and gives an air of quality.

It is not perfect though. Firstly, it takes far too long to decypher the instructions. A proper instruction manual (using actual words!) would be an improvement. I gave up reading picture books when I went to senior school... Secondly, once you master the necessary quantities it makes a fine cup of coffee which will rival the commercial coffee shops. The drawback is that it's not really hot enough - fine if you are going to drink it straight away, but if you are the type to savour your coffee slowly well, you'll need the microwave on standby.

The only thing that really grated on me was when I discovered it was not fully automatic. Not having any experience of these things I thought 'measured coffee & whitener pods = measured water'. Not the case, so if you don't pay attention you'll have coffee all over the worktop. Pity - it would have been nice to switch it on and go make that phone call.

Overall, as I drink my coffee straight away I'm very pleased with it, but if I were the type to string my drinks out I think this review might have gone rather differently.
