      I originally ordered this machine for myself, hoping that my Husband would join me on the terrace every so often. My Husband is not a coffee drinker and mostly complains that they are ‘too strong’. Lo and behold, I have only had one serving of the Cappuccino and he has become an actual addict! I have found that I am too sensitive to caffeine; hence why I stopped after that first mug. They only offer one type that is Decaf at this time and it is very difficult to find online besides going through Nescafe themselves. I have had to order a couple of boxes through Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and finally Nescafe. Besides the Nescafe site, you will not be able to find all varieties at one location. Personally, I have not tried locally because the list of stores seems very limited and not convenient.

      Back to the coffee: I can honestly describe it as delicious and velvety. The 15 bars of pressure that they boast regarding the foam is truly magnificent and present. I believe that is what amplifies rather simple flavors into something so heavenly in your mouth. We currently own 9 flavors and I almost daily drink the ‘Peach Iced Tea’. It is exactly what you would expect in terms of flavor; peachy, frothy and lightly sweet.

      The Hubby is drinking two cups a day. He begins his day with an Iced Cappuccino and then a hot drink later on. We love the customize-ability of the machine in that you can choose how much milk (for the flavors that provide a milk pod!) or how many bars of coffee. With this method you are able to choose how weak or strong your coffee is. The machine is sleek and has a very small footprint (that’s why I chose this model/style) on my kitchen counter. It blends with our stainless steel appliance filled kitchen.

      Now onto the bit of bad… Why not 5 stars? The reason is that I do not know at this time how reliable this machine will be. The first machine that was shipped out was used twice before it just started to leak from the bottom of the water reservoir. Luckily, Amazon shipped out a brand new one and this machine has been put through the ringer the last month and it is still fully operational. The other reason it lost its final star is because of coffee availability. I seriously had to shop online at three different retailers to be able to find 90 percent of the current offerings. It shouldn’t be this difficult, NESCAFE!! Amazon does sell in bulk, but I didn’t want to commit financially to such an order when I didn’t even know how they tasted. For the future, we will be ordering in bulk on here for our favorites. I am happy to report that I did see a small section dedicated to these coffee pods in our local Stop and Shop a few nights ago. Maybe the company is catching on and they will continue to grow in store availability. One can only hope.

      Highly recommend if you love the idea of 15 bars of pressure in your very own kitchen. Each individual pod equates to a bit over a dollar which is rather expensive but if you are a Starbucks or frou frou coffee drinker, then this is a steal! If you enjoy your Sanka with water then you will find it to be a financial burden. Btw, I have already spent nearly 100 dollars in coffee. WOWSERS!

      It’s difficult to separate the review of the equipment from the review of the coffee since the machine would not exist but for the availability of the coffee. I’ve been searching a long time for decent coffee in the US and I had never heard of the Dolce Gusto system until a French friend of mine introduced me. For the record, I’ve tried: Illy iperEspresso capsules, Keurig K-Cups, Lavazza ECL, Lavazza Blue, Nespresso (including their new North American exclusive Virtuo line) and Tassimo. Lavazza Blue capsules blow all of the rest out of the water for espresso…. but both the machine and the capsules are near-impossible to find and the machine runs around $800.

      The machine worked just fine after following the instructions on running two tanks of water through the system to get it primed and ready to go. I did not experience any of the issues that other reviewers said they had. I have zero problems. The reason why it’s 4 stars instead of 5 is that the vibration is a little harsh, not room shaking, but enough that you have to hold the cup in place or it will vibrate off the pedestal. Heat up time is quick (about 60-90 seconds) and then there’s only 6 seconds between making cups. I also like that it shuts off after 5 minutes automatically. Also, the pods can be a little messy if you’re not careful. Don’t try to take the pod out of the tray, you might push liquid out of it and onto your hand and/or floor… instead just take the pod holder over to the trash bin and toss it. There are no recycle programs that I’ve found for this, sadly.

      Now, if you like a huge big gulp of coffee in the morning in a mug the size of a soup bowl, don’t even bother with this, go buy a Keurig or other machine specifically geared towards American coffee. The maximum you’ll get out of this is 8 ounces (for the record a standard US coffee measure is 6oz so when you’re drinking your 20oz grande, you’re having over 3 servings of coffee).

      Buying into the Dolce Gusto system means: 1) you must order online (except in a few place in California), 2) you are bound to only Dolce Gusto capsules of which there are many varieties and variations by country, 3) you’ll be paying about $10 for 16 capsules if you stick to ordering from Nestle, more if you want to venture on to eBay or buy non US market capsules.

      I’ve tried almost all the espressos, both the ones available in the US and a couple from overseas. The best one is the Ristretto Ardenza …. which is not available on the US website as of this writing. The espresso intenso is drinkable, but not nearly as tasty. I could go on and on, but taste is subjective. I can only say, that Keurig lovers, Starbucks lovers will hate this machine and the coffee (and vice versa). If you’re looking to replace your American drip coffee with this, you’ll probably be disappointed unless you make really bad coffee yourself. This coffee is made by shooting pressure through a small quantity of coffee. I’ve found them to be weak and lacking flavor (doctoring them with cream and sugar only makes them worse).

      The milky drinks are better. But you’ll want to dial back the milk or you won’t taste any of the coffee. You’ll have fun experimenting with the different capsules and I think everyone should find something they like, but this machine will not satisfy all categories: espresso lovers, drip coffee lovers and cappuccino/milky drink lovers. You just can’t have it all!
