NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio Review

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto. I received products to review, and will receive a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions are my own. There are affiliate links in this post.

I was recently asked if I’d like to review The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio Machine with a few cups to use with it. Now I won’t lie I had seen a machine similar to this which I had wanted to review for a while, I may not be a heavy coffee drinker, but I love a cup of coffee at least once a day and I love other hot drinks. So, as you can see, I said yes.

I mean this is the perfect little machine for those that don’t plan on making an entire pot. I hate wasting money and dumping coffee down the drain because I made too much. Are you kidding me I have two daughters that would’ve been very upset if I had said no. I want to add that I am prone to loving all things cute, which includes the movie Wall-E which for some reason this tiny little machine reminds me a lot of.

For the review, I want to state that at first I had a little trouble with it. Sometimes there are twerks that need fixed and some reason I had a bubble in my line so it wouldn’t pump out the water at first. I’m guessing it was from when you put the water cartridge back on the machine, if you don’t see bubbles come up you need to redo it until you do. Once I got that part figured out (by the way make sure ALL the tape is off, they make sure that baby is in the box securely so nothing gets broken) everything else is a piece of cake. I love their customer service.Nescafe Dolce Gusto

Pick out the capsule (cups) you want to drink, read how it is suppose to be prepared. If you want to make something like hot cocoa you will need to use 2 different capsules…they explain everything which makes it easy. You’ll feel like there is never a need to go to a coffee shop again because hey, you can do it all right at home now. Place the capsule in it’s little home and slide it shut. Pull the silver level back down until it clicks into place (you’ll know the sound as it punctures the capsule). Pick your hot or cold and wait for it to pour. It really is that simple.

Some fun things I liked about this: You can set the little stand for a small cup, medium or large. You are able to desire how much you want in your cup with the little knob up above the machine. It heats up milk capsules too, which is great if you like hot cocoa (I have 4 kids that love it). There are 15 different coffeehouse flavors to choose from, which includes things like iced tea, cappuccino, hot cocoa, coffee. It is really quick. My daughters make this every morning and love that it is faster than the coffee pot I did have.

The sleek and stylish NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto machine brings the “coffee house” into your own home by delivering up to 15 bars of professional pressure to make the perfect cup of coffee and frothy milk every time. With the compact, no-mess capsules, you just pop them into the machine, and with the press of a button, out comes a great cup of specialty (or coffee house quality) coffee in under a minute! What is great about theDolce Gusto is that it can also brew a variety of specialty coffee beverages including creamy layered lattes, sweet caramel macchiatos, bold espressos, even a frosty iced cappuccino. For the non-coffee drinkers in your house Dolce Gusto also brews a deliciously indulgent Chococino.

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Machine would make a great Christmas item. Oh and if you forget to shut it off as you were running out the door, don’t worry it shuts itself off after 5 minutes.

How do I take my coffee? I love to use my own recipe (thanks to pinterest) I take a Mason jar, fill it up with 3/4 sweetened condensed milk, pour in same amount of milk (I use the can to measure), a few tablespoons of vanilla and put the lid back on and shake it well. This lasts me one week. I tend to use this creamer whenever I have my morning coffee, which is the morning blend. Now the kids like to use the Chococino and add their own milk. They said otherwise to them it isn’t sweet enough.

To learn more about this great machine or stay up-to-date with all their stuff follow them at Facebook, Twitter or visit their site. If you want to watch some videos by them they are also on Youtube. Psst, there’s even a cookie recipe there.
