NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Review and Giveaway!

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto

 

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Why NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto?

I love coffee. Let me just get that out of the way. I’ve had a very personal relationship with coffee since my college days when I had to get my first full-time job during the summer and struggled to wake up early like a real working person. Ok, I still struggled even after working full-time for 14 years. Nowadays though, I blame it on my kids. They keep me up late, wake me up during the night and keep me running all day. Coffee is pretty much a necessity! As a busy mom schlepping kids off to school and daycare in the morning, I don’t have time to run to the local coffee shop, nor do I typically even have time to boil water for a french press. I need good coffee and I need it quick. A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to be introduced to an awesome single cup coffee machine by NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto. I owned their starter version, the Piccolo, for years and have loved every cup of coffee. My standby every morning is their Caffe Americano, but I also love their Cappuccino Ice on warm summer afternoons and their Espresso when I need a quick burst! So, when I was recently offered the opportunity to review their higher level (and most popular) Genio machine, how could I refuse?

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio Features

What I love most about the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio machine is definitely the flavor, but the ease and speed of preparing one of their beverages is also top-notch. You can make anything from iced coffee to a caramel macchiato in under a minute, and they look and taste like they’re from a great coffee shop. The espresso even has a wonderful crema that is completely effortless (but doesn’t look like it is!) Here are some of the other features that I love about my NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio and the coffee that I make with it:

  • There are 19 different hot and cold beverage varieties
  • Custom scroll wheel allows user to adjust strength and size of coffee
  • Designed with a 15-bar pressure system, comparable to those used professionally at coffee shops
  • Drinks are made with all natural whole milk that’s hormone and preservative free
  • Available starting this Fall at select California Target locations (and online), and at select California Costco locations!

      I’ve tried almost all of them and they’re great, very authentic to what you’d get at a good coffee shop.

    Actually, I do not drink coffee LOL and I have never had a cup of coffee in my life (I have tasted it, just do not like it). BUT my husband loves white mochas and would love if I won this! 🙂

    I don’t drink coffee — don’t like the taste of it. However, my mother likes coffee and I do love tea, which I believe Nescafe Dolce Gusto makes tea.

      It also makes really good hot chocolate, so much better than those little dry mix packets I used to buy for the kids 🙂

    My nearly everyday go-to is plain ol’ black coffee with a tad of sweetener. We have a Keurig at work, so I bring a package of dark roast K-cups with me to make when I need caffeine! On a weekly basis, I stop at the coffee shop and get a latte of some flavor – right now, it’s Pumpkin Spice of course!

    I like my coffee bold & black- but I’m also a sucker for anything pumpkin-flavored this time of year!
