The Crazy Suburban Mom: Foamy, coffee goodness with Gusto!

Foamy, coffee goodness with Gusto!

Sometime on October 25, I wrote a post complaining about grounds in my coffee and a few hours later Mom Central wrote asking, Do you want to take the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto for a test drive?  Please, I hate to beg but please can I?

And for anyone who doesn't know what a Dolce Gusto is; here they are in all their delicious coolness.  


I picked out the Creativa (the one on the right) whose tag line is, Your wish is my command.  

It doesn't get much better then that.

It describes itself like this - And man, I like a coffee maker that describes it's own self, because now that's advanced -  "I am the ultimate combination of customization and automation. I am technology working for you.  So advanced I can almost read  your mind."

It looks kind of moderny-retro to me, it's wish is my command and guess what?  No grounds!

There's more.  The coffee goes in the machine as flavor capsules and not only coffee (you can make things like hot chocolate and iced tea, too) and Creativa - we're on a first name basis, almost going steady - figures what capsules go in, and in what order,  based on what drink I want.  I mean...  C'mon. Right?

I don't know about you but in the morning it's nice not have to think before I've had my coffee and I certainly don't want to have to think about the coffee itself.  I just want it, I don't know, there in front of me.  Hot and really, really delicious.



As an aside this isn't my first single cup rodeo -  I've used two other single serve coffee brewers.  I owned and gave away two  Senseo units (can't say I didn't try with that one). And I've tried Keurigs in hotels and offices and I don't know. They were fine but nothing that seemed more then a cup of coffee, albeit a cup of coffee without grounds.

The coffee out of the Dolce Gusto was definitely more coffee house coffee, foam and all. It's fast.  It's easy It's got lots of  scrumptious flavor options.  It's wish is my command.

And it looks rockin' cool on my kitchen counter.

“I wrote this review while participating in a test drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and received a coffee machine to facilitate my review.”

Anny, Happy Thanksgiving to you too! And it might be the coolest looking thing on my counter! And the coffee in the picture was a cappuccino - a double. And I swirled it :)

It was delish!

Lynette - I thought it was pretty retro chic too!
