NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO RAISES THE BAR IN SINGLE-CUP COFFEE CATEGORY

In Partnership with Krups®, NESCAFÉ® Launches New Customizable, Single-Cup Coffee System Rich in Style and Flavor

Glendale, Calif., (June 23, 2008) - The new NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ coffee system redefines "house blend," offering aficionados the luxury and ease of brewing a rich variety of delicious, coffeehouse-quality coffees from the convenience of home. Recognizing that coffee cravings can change from day to day and from person to person, NESCAFÉ®, the world's largest coffee brand, has teamed up with Krups®, the world leader in pressure-coffeemakers, to serve up a unique 15-bar pressure coffee system which makes eight different premium coffee flavors and a rich hot chocolate - customized to individual taste.

Raising the bar for the single-cup coffee category, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ launches Sept. 22, 2008 exclusively at Sur La Table and becomes available Nov. 1, 2008 at select additional retailers, just in time to top holiday wish lists and become the new must-have stylish kitchen accessory. NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ is striking in both function and design, reflective of Krups' precision, engineering and technical perfection. Sleek and compact, the product comes in vibrant red, modern white and classic black.

"As America's palate and passion for coffee evolves, selection, robust flavors and personalization are increasingly important. One pot no longer 'fits all' and the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ coffee system offers the quality, diversity and design that coffee lovers desire," said Doug Munk, marketing manager, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™. "Coffee preferences are an expression of individuality."

The NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ system features eight, full-flavor choices made from strictly 100% high quality Arabica beans: Café Mocha; Caffè Lungo (dark roast, mild and decaf); Cappuccino; Espresso; Iced Cappuccino; and Latte Macchiato. A velvety hot chocolate drink, the Chococino®, is also available. Connoisseurs will savor the challenge of picking a favorite, deciding between a frothy Cappuccino, a full-bodied Espresso or a multilayered Latte Macchiato. To their delight, morning or night, enthusiasts can indulge in whichever variety they fancy at the moment, each cup made to perfection following their own personal preferences.

- more -

While all other single-cup coffee systems offer zero-to-two bars of pressure, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ sets a new standard by featuring a 15-bar pressure system - equal to or above coffeehouse machine standards. The patented technology optimizes the extraction pressure for each variety, consistently delivering the best quality and texture every time. More pressure means consumers gain more control over brewing a frothy cappuccino, velvety latte, or dependable cup of black coffee exactly to their distinct tastes and preferences.

Using NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ is easy. Simply pop the airtight capsule of choice into the uniquely styled machine, place a favorite glass or mug onto the adjustable tray and then slide the "Custom Control Lever" to fill to the desired coffee strength. Pop in a second capsule containing powdered milk to produce frothy foam on Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato, Iced Cappuccino, Café Mocha or Chococino®. In less than one minute, coffee enthusiasts will enjoy the delicious aroma and gourmet taste of a freshly brewed cup. The special design of the coffee capsules keeps the coffee fresh for one year.

Starting in late September, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ will be available exclusively at Sur La Table stores and online at www.dolce-gusto.us. Beginning Nov. 1st, 2008, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ distribution will also include select Bloomingdale's and Macy's stores, Bed, Bath & Beyond. Suggestedretail price is $169.99 for the machine and $8.49 per pack of 16 coffee capsules. Every NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™ machine comes with a free starter kit including a white cappuccino cup and saucer set, a tall latte macchiato glass, a variety pack of coffee capsules plus a helpful guide containing recipe cards and instructions.

More information on NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto™, including high-resolution product photography, is available at www.dolce-gusto.us.

Dear Sir/Madam,
Early in December I wrote to you to ask why my Dolce Gusto ( a birthday gift) often leaves a pool of water on the bench - even when it has been emptied after use. I've disappointingly not had a reply to my query. Can you assist, please/
Colin Graham

I bought my Dolce Gusto Kp2100VP 010942207184 at
Bloomingdales and was told to register on line to
receive free coffee box samples which comes with purchase. How do I register with you to receive this.

I just purchsed this machine and everyone in my house (including a hard to please husband and daughter) loves this machine. The latte's are great and I love the macchiato's as well. Everything is good to put it in one sentence. It comes with a macchiato and cauppuchino glass which is an extra benefit. The machine is so simple not like the other machines where you have to buy a frother or pitcher. This one is super simple; add the milk (white capsule) turn it the hot side, dump it and then add the coffee (black capsule) and your done! Superb!!
