De’Longhi Nescafe Dolce Gusto

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine is great if you have a small space and budget but want espresso style coffee at home. It also comes with six (6) boxes of capsules/pods to get you started.

My Dolce Gusto is somewhat older, the style is similar though not idential as my images below will show.  It is still makes delicious coffee.  I love the machine and wholeheartedly recommend it.  Sometimes the coffee itself in the capsules/pods can be a little bitter, but then so can instant coffee or even barista made coffee.


The colour of the one I purchased is white and black and as far as I know they were new on the market at the time, though I resisted buying capsule machines because I was worried that I would not like the coffee, wow, was I in for a surprise.

Just before I purchased my Dolce Gusto I was at a work conference where they had an enormous capsule machine, you had a variety of choices and I mean a variety, way too many to name here, you could do two or three cups at a time and whatever flavour you wanted.  This was new to me but the coffee when I tasted it was delicious.  So I bought the Dolce Gusto and I have not regretted it, it still delivers delicious coffee every time.

If you are looking for a good, portable coffee machine this Nescafe Dolce Gusto is a beauty.  Yes, you can take it with you anywhere you have access to power, water and of course your coffee capsules/pods.

I have considered other capsule machines before that were cheaper and bigger so that you would not consider taking them on holiday with you but this little beauty you could.  We usually have too much luggage to add my Dolce Gusto much as I would like to.

To summarise, Nescafe Dolce Gusto is compact, portable and easy to maintain as well as easy to use and the coffee is delicious.

I have compared other capsule machines only in passing to say that the machines are larger in size and while the capsules are similar they are different enough to be incompatible.

Some of the others I have looked at were in Aldi, Woolworths(Australia) – Lavazza, Breville but none can compare with the Dolce Gusto in portability.

I hope this little review has been helpful at least in part, after all the choice is yours.
