It's almost time for the holidays, which means it's time to get out the tablecloth and the fancy china! We love celebrating with family and friends, and this year it's going to be even more fun, thanks to Mom Select and NESCAFE. They sent us a NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Genio coffeemaker so we can brew all of our favorite coffeehouse drinks at home! The Genio is a single-serve coffeemaker that uses individual beverage pods, so we can offer our guests their favorite beverages, just how they like it. I absolutely LOVE the NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Genio, and I'm thrilled to be giving one away at the bottom of this post!
Here's what I love about NESCAFE Dolce Gusto:
Hi TechOwning a NESCAFE Dolce Gusto machine is like having your own personal barista. It's a coffee house quality machine, made by DeLonghi, with a 15-bar pressure system that brings out the deep brewed flavor creates a wonderful froth. You can enjoy a great beverage in under a minute! It doesn't even take up a lot of space like many other machines: it's small and compact and slides right underneath the top cabinets in our kitchen.
Ease of UseIt's so simple, even my kids can make their own hot chocolate or iced tea. Just fill the tank with water, load a capsule into the machine, set the water level (the water level for each drink is clearly indicated on each capsule so you never have to remember!), and press the hot or cold button. The Dolce Gusto machine does the rest! It takes less than a minute to get the machine ready, and there's virtually no waiting time between cups. It's also so easy to clean -- just rinse the capsule slot and the drip tray.
VarietyNESCAFE Dolce Gusto has 19 different kinds of beverages, hot and cold! Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate is only the start. Right now we are enjoying Nestea Peach Iced Tea, Chai Tea Latte, Nesquik, Chococcino, and Decaf Grande. We've also tried Caffe Lungo (decaf and regular), Caramel Latte Macchiato, and Decaf Espresso. Everyone in the family has a favorite, and we can offer our guests a huge choice, so they can enjoy what they want.
AvailabilityUntil this fall, NESCAFE Dolce Gusto pods were not as widely available as other brands. I usually order mine online at Amazon.com or BedBathandBeyond.com (they're also available on Walmart.com and other coffee specialty websites). If I just can't wait for them to be shipped, I would drive to Bed, Bath, and Beyond. However, things are much better now. Dolce Gusto is also available at Sears and select Costco stores in California. Even better, it's available at Target.com as well as select Target stores in California! I'm so lucky I live in California!! For more updates on Dolce Gusto availability, follow Dolce Gusto on Twitter and Facebook.
