Just over a month a go, we were very lucky and got a very special delivery. We were kindly sent the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me coffee machine to review, how lucky are we?! This lovely machine retails at £99, but in my opinion is worth every penny. I have waited for over a month to post this because I wanted to make sure I gave this product a thorough testing out, after all, (well to me anyway) this is a bit of a luxury product.
I have had a bit of a love affair with coffee since becoming a mum, meeting other mummy's in coffee shops, recharging after long and sleepless nights. But, lets face it, a good coffee doesn't come cheap these days, so to be able to have this luxury at home for a fraction of the cost is a big must for me! Plus I can now have our mummy chats at home, whilst the tots play... winners all round!
So, how easy to use is the machine? The Mini Me comes with some very clear instructions for first time use and then also how to maintain you product. The only problem came was when I actually came to make a coffee... It took two attempts because I'm a bit of a drip it would seem! Most of the Nescafe drinks have two capsules per drink, obviously labelled by having one white (for the milk) and one brown (for coffee/chocolate etc)... I didn't realise this to begin with, muppet!
How does it taste? Looovely! I really like having the Caramel Espresso with warmed almond milk, the nuttiness of the milk along with the caramel is a winner! I also really like the Vanilla Latte and Chai Tea. I'm also loving using one of my big glass jars to keep the capsules on hand!
You can buy the capsules at most supermarkets, but we did order some directly from their website. When you buy the machine you get a £10 voucher to buy capsules - which is fantastic! The site is very easy to use and the capsules arrived in very good time.
So if your thinking of buying a coffee machine, make sure the Dolce Gusto is on you wish list.
