NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo Coffee Maker Review
NESCAFE has sent me this coffee maker along with two boxes of capsules to sponsor this post. My opinions are 100% mine and are not influenced by receiving these products for free. I have been testing out the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo Coffee Maker for all of you!! Let me tell you I am on a caffeine high! Even my husband who normally does not drink coffee is enjoying this machine. He is making regular hot chocolate and add the espresso! Now, I can make lattes, espressos, cappuccinos, hot or iced at home!
I LOVE a good cup of coffee and I especially love a gourmet/specialty cup of coffee. I have a regular coffee maker that works just fine for me. I add my cream and sugar but, it does not stop me from going out to buy a cup of coffee that I can not make myself at home. Now, using the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo Coffee Maker I can make them all at home!
Now on to the review.
What’s In the Box
With your NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo machine comes a quick start guide, user manual, and a welcome booklet. In the welcome booklet is a code for you to get 1 free boxes of capsules! 🙂 When you order your capsules you can also sign up for Reap Rewards to earn points for more free boxes. I registered my two boxes and it gave me 10 points each. One box is 100 points so, for every ten boxes you order you could get a free box.
The machine is very easy to use. First you need to fill the tank and just run plain water through the machine to clean it out. First moving the selection lever to cold then to hot. I also like that the drip tray can be adjusted up or down to fit your coffee cup to prevent the coffee from splattering or making a mess.
The first flavor I tried was the Skinny Cappuccino. If you take a look at the top of the box it tells you how to make the coffee inside. First you use the white to make the froth and it tells you how much it will make.
Next you change out the capsule to the second adding it to your cup.
My husband joked and asked why I didn’t make the nice leaf pattern on top you see in all the images. lol I’m not that talented but, I do have a great tasting specialty coffee at home!
Now, here is the extra kick I like!
I was also sent the Espresso Intenso! Which you can drink on its’ own or add to your coffee like I did lol. Oh it was so good!
