"I love Coffee"

Since becoming a stay at home mum I have got used to popping into coffee shops to feed my son or meeting up with other friends but £3-£4 a go for a coffee soon saw me spending quite a lot so I mentioned ot my husband that I should look at getting a coffee machine to have latte's, cappucino etc and he agreed it would be a good idea and in the end of November last year we saw an advert for a Cream Dolce Gusto for £49.99 in Currys so we reserved one for me to collect later that day and I have never looked back!


The box is pretty large and houses instructions, the machine, 2 boxes of pods, the drinks tray and that is about all.
It was easy to set up so I designated a space on my worktop for it to have pride of place and after a small amount of assembly which was to attach the tray and we added water and ran it though the machine before making a drink.

The machine has long appealed to me for its style and it just looks so cool on your worktop and the fact that there are various colours available makes it even more appealing.

*~*Machine features*~*
1500 watts.
15 bar pressure pump.
Pressure automatically adjusts depending on the drink being made.
Thermo block technology which heats water as required.
Wide variety of pods available.

For me ease of use was very important as with a 1 year old running around I wanted to be able to make a drink quickly and enjoy it.
The machine does look somewhat daunting with its levers but it is so very simple to use.

The water is added to the rear of the machine and then simply press the power button and wait for it to stop flashing red and turn green and add your chosen pod.
The pods are inserted into the machine by lifting the silver Dolce Gusto embossed lever and pulling out the small try big enough to just fit your pod.
Insert the pod and slide back into the machine and push down the lever.
Place your cup at the required level and simply push the lever to the right for hot drinks and to the left for cold drinks.

Depending on your choice of drink you may need to use two pods.

*~*The Pods*~*

There are a wide range of pods available for the Dolce Gusto ranging from £3.68 up to £3.96 depending where you purchase them.

Cappucino
Skinny Cappucino
Espresso
Espresso Intenso
Espresso Decaffeinato
Espresso Ristretto
Caffee Lungo
Caffee Lungo Mild
Caffee Lungi Decaffeinato
Chococino
Cappucino Ice
Latte Machiato
Latte Macchiato Vanilla
Latte Macchiato Unsweetened
Skinny Lattee Macchiato
Nestea
Americano
Caffee Crema Grande
Caffee Grande Intenso
Chai Tea Latte
Caramel Latte Macchiato

As I mentioned before you may be required to use 2 pods to create some drinks. Each pod is coloured white for the milk and brown for the coffee/chocolate.

On the lid of each pod is a guide as to how much should go into your mug out of fifths. This is to ensure that you get the correct balance of your coffee.

The boxes contain 16 pods but if you require 2 pods for a drink you will only get 8 drinks so that is something to remember when making your purchase.
It may seem expensive that you only get 8 drinks for this price but it works out a lot cheaper than a costa or starbucks and if you invest in some syrups like I have you can have a whole variety of drinks at your fingertips!

If you love coffee then this is a great machine that can be picked up for a great deal from time to time and I can honestly say I am not disappointed.

The machine comes with a pod dispenser so that you do not have leaks in your bin or across your worktop and its relatively cheap to operate and looks so stylish.

A selection pack was provided with the machine giving you the chance to sample, cappucino, latte macchiato, caffe lungi, americano, mocha and choccochino which in my opinion are the most popular items.

There are plenty of accessories that you can purchase via the dolce gusto website such as glasses and mugs, spoons and storage. If you register with them and order a box of pods they will send you a box of americano pods for free and you can also enter the code from each box onto the website and go into a draw to win pods something I make sure I do!
