Krups Dolce Gusto Mini Me review

 

The espresso from the Krups Dolce Gusto Mini Me isn't bad, but the milk capsules don't do it for us

The Dolce Gusto Mini Me looks like a very versatile machine on paper, and it can produce a surprisingly decent cup of espresso. Unfortunately, the use of powdered milk capsules means that fans of cappuccinos and lattes could be disappointed in what the...

Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me ( Black)

 

Standing at 12.4 inches tall and measuring a mere 1 foot (12 inches) deep by 7.9 inches wide the Dolce Gusto Mini Me is certainly aptly named. Its pint-sized stature makes it one of the tiniest kitchen appliances I've laid my hands on. About the...

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me whips up fancy espresso-style drinks quickly and conveniently. The machine is also compact, easy to use, and can make iced coffee and tea beverages fast too.

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto works with only Nestle Dolce Gusto brand pods, and its coffee can't match true, freshly made espresso. The Mini Me also brews drinks no larger than 8 ounces at a time.

If you have a hankering for fancy cafe drinks at home, the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me is worth a look -- just don't expect anything close to real espresso flavor.

Nescafe's smallest coffee brewer isn't short on power

 

Nestle's Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee makers are single-cup machines with proprietary pods that can make a bunch of different coffee, espresso, and tea drinks. They are designed to deliver your favorite coffee shop treats quickly and efficiently while...

Like the Nescafe Mini Me, Starbucks' $200 Verismo 580 (available for £85 in the UK, but not in Australia) uses proprietary pods to create various cafe-style coffee drinks. We were underwhelmed by Starbucks' milk pods, though, and found its lattes...

The machine looks good - coffee tastes horrible

 

" We returned this product because the coffee doesn't actually taste of coffee, having to use 2 cups per cappuccino / cafe latte seems inefficient and it's clumsy and the coffee doesn't ever fill up to the size of a macchiato / latte glass. "

Perfect coffee easily made.

 

" Bought to replace my previous Dolce Gusto which was a manually operated maching I opted for an automatic. Apart from coffee being easier to make with the automatic machine ( no watching the cup fill or coffee fountain if you dont) it has encouraged...
