For the coffee lover in all of us

AdvantagesCoffee shop coffee at instant prices, great results

DisadvantagesReservoir not big enough, can get expensive

"I have to admit that I'm just a tiny bit partial to a decent cup of coffee, not that one-dimensional instant brew, but the real thing. I guess it harks back to my formative years, when the ultimate in luxury was our weekly visit to a coffee shop when the family would partake of a tea cake and our choice of freshly brewed beverage. It was during this weekly ritual that I would be allowed my one and only cup of coffee of the week and at that time I ..." Read review

I love my little coffee penguin!!! Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to use and clean, quick to operate and most importantly it makes delicious drinks.

DisadvantagesA very expensive machine with expensive refill pods, only 4 stars due to price

"...purchase and make with the Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine. They range from Marrakesh Style tea, to Cappuccinos (hot and iced), Lattes, Lungos and so on. There was a 'starter kit' provided inside the box. Now the box itself will make you believe that you are getting 6 free drinks but you are really getting 6 pods. I had this a while back so I can't remember the exact drinks that were in there, but I think that varies anyway. But for instance if you get ..." Read review

Wake up and smell the coffee....

AdvantagesGreat tasting coffee

DisadvantagesThe pods can be messy.

"As a student, I often find myself up to the early hours of the morning trying to write an essay which is due that day. I know, I’m the stereotypical student. Recently I moved into my new student flat with two friends. We decided we would need a coffee machine to give us that caffeine boost we so needed. Appearance: What attracted my housemates and I to this machine was the design. This coffee machine completely stands out in the market. With ..." Read review

Great coffee machine... a must for all coffee lovers!!

AdvantagesGreat design, quick to heat up, awesome range of flavours.

DisadvantagesHigh cost of the machine and pods, need to experiment with taste initially.

"I have recently moved into a new student flat with two of my friends (wessexgirls14 being both my flatmate and another Ciao user). We decided to pull together so that we could afford a decent coffee machine during our studies… seeing as we are all coffee lovers! I guess we all need that instant pick-me-up in the morning. We chose the Dolce Gusto coffee machine after friends of ours recommended this model and amazon gave it pretty good reviews too! ..." Read review

Coffee Shop From Home

Advantageseasy to make hot drinks

Disadvantagesexpensive refills

"...hasn’t worn off is my Nescafe Dolce Gusto. I am not a coffee obsesee but I do love hot drinks and that is what this machine provides me with. It is a great price for what it does and is so fast it saves a lot of times and when I’m in the mood for a nice hot drink I can always rely on this little machine to do the work for me while I sit in amazement watching it get to work. ===APPEARANCE=== This machine comes in two colours that I have seen so far ..."

Good Doggy

AdvantagesGreat coffee, variety of drinks, easy to use and maintain

DisadvantagesExpensive machine and capsules

"My parents bought my husband the Krups Piccolo coffee maker for his birthday and it has gone down a treat. They certainly aren't the cheapest things on the planet, but the end result is so worth the initial outlay. Whilst my parents do like my husband, they didn't like the price tag of the machine which is between £80 and £100 (depending on where you get it from), which is how he ended up with the red one. The red one for some reason is much cheaper ..." Read review

Great for coffee at home!

Advantagesgreat taste, cheap machine, easy to use

Disadvantagesnone

"...the end, I bought a nescafe krups machine from ebay. It cost me around £42 (including delivery!) and I have to say, it's one of the best £40's I've spent! When I first got my machine, I opened up the instructions, and to be honest, this is where the product lacks. It has virtually no worded instructions at all, and is completely full of diagrams/pictures which aren't all that helpful. However, I figured it out pretty easily so it's not a great issue. ..."

Quick & Easy Coffee

AdvantagesStylish, easy to use, easy to clean

DisadvantagesNone

"=== ~ The Purchase ~ === I don't really like coffee, however my fiancé does. So, we ended up with this coffee machine. He bought it at the end of February, and I only started using it myself at the end of last month upon discovering that it makes hot chocolate too! === ~ Price ~ === My fiancé paid around the £60 mark for this I believe. It is one of the cheaper models and the retail price is around the £80 mark, which isn't too expensive for such ..." Read review

Costa Coffee At Home

AdvantagesEasy to clean, Compact & Procudes Yummy Drinks

DisadvantagesYou have to guess the water used

"...design. There is a small Nescafe logo on the black part of the machine which gives the brand confidence. Attached to the back of the machine there is a clear removable water tank, which cannot be seen from the front and holds 600ml of water. There is a black drip tray on the front of the machine which can be clipped higher or lower (depending on the size of your cup) and also removed easily for cleaning. I really like a tidy organised kitchen ..." Read review

Dolce Gusto Piccolo – brings the coffee shop to your home

AdvantagesEasy to use and maintain

DisadvantagesThe pods are expensive

"The Dolce Gusto Piccolo coffee machine is a good investment for big fans of coffee as it enables you to serve up authentic coffee shop tasting coffee in your own home simply and effectively. This coffee machine is sleek in design, coming in a simple domed shape with a tray on which to put your coffee cup, a compartment to put your coffee pod in, a clear water dispenser that clicks on and off at the back and a little spout which delivers ..."

Nescafé- You've done it again.

AdvantagesMakes brilliant coffee quickly, easily and with no mess. Very attractive.

DisadvantagesThe pods cannot be recycled. The tank doesn't have measurements on.

"I decided that, as I loved coffee, I should buy a coffee machine. Then began the questions. What type? What do you want it for? How many people will be using it?Firstly, I should say that this coffee machine appealed to me as it was small (I have very little space in my kitchen) and relatively cheap. The capacity of the tank is 0.7 litres, which is usually fine for 1-3 cups of standard sized coffee (like the Americano, which is 240ml per cup, ..." Read review

Nescafé dolce gusto

AdvantagesQuick and easy to use

DisadvantagesDose not cut of and will continue to poor coffee into your cup if not watched

"The dolce gusto coffee machine produces by fare the best tasting coffee I have had in my own home, very easy to us and very fast at producing a great drink. With £10 free to use in the eshop, also included in box this product is a great buy. Plenty of choice on the Nescafé dolce gusto website from chocolate, ice tea to all sorts of different coffees. The only down fall with this product is the size of the water container on the rear, this only has ..." Read review

Worth It If You Drink A Lot Of Hot Drinks

AdvantagesQuick, Easy to use, Compact

DisadvantagesBoth pods and machine are expensive

"...these. So I bought this Nescafe one, and I am glad I did, as it is quick and easy to operate, and you need little effort to make hot drinks such use, coffee, hot chocolate. Appearance- This machine looks small, and compact. It wouldn't look out of place in any house. It is designed to be small, and stylish. The only way I could fault the appearance is that there is no screen on it, to tell you temperatures, what its making, how long to go etc ..." Read review

As a coffee lover, I approve!

AdvantagesGood small size. Nice design. Easy to clean. Delicious coffee

DisadvantagesToo expensive. Both machine and coffee flavors/containers.

"I actually got this a gift from my sister for Christmas. I've always wanted one but I've always just found it to be a little too expensive to buy just to have great coffee. So when I got this as a gift, I was thrilled! Unlike other espresso machines that typically very large and take up a lot of space on your kitchen counter, the Dolce Gusto Piccolo coffee machine is a good reasonalble size. Basically as big as your average size of a normal coffee ..." Read review

A great compact machine, but with a few flaws.

AdvantagesQuick and easy, looks attractive on the kitchen worktop.

DisadvantagesNo measure facility, pods are expensive

"This is a great little machine, but unfortunately it is let down buy the fact that you cannot measure the water accurately. Why couldnt there be some sort of measure scale on the Water tank? Its a bit of a pain having to memorise or measure in a serperate jusg, the amount of water for each beverage. Having said that, it does make great tasting drinks, in no time at all, even though the pods are a tad on the expensive side. Some of the pods are ..." Read review
