Unboxing the Krups Nescafe Dolce Gusto Single Serve Coffee Maker


We've been using the US version of the Krups Nescafe Dolce Gusto over the past few weeks, and we have to say we're really impressed. Impressed enough to share just about every step we've had with this single serve coffee maker. One thing to note is Nescafe is owned by Nestle, which in turns is part of or shares in some business with Nespresso. So, you can really feel some of those influences in the Krups Nescafe Dolce Gusto, from the box, to the materials, and to the coffee this machine produces.

Update: Read our review of the Krups Nescafe Dolce Gusto Single Serve Coffee Machine

Right away you can see the Nespresso influence - beautifully
designed instructions, and the brown box filled with something interesting.

The brown box and tasting samples are on top.

You get a clear set mug for lattes, and a really nice cup and saucer
for regular single serve coffee.
The final set of latte cup, cup and saucer, drip tray, smart capsule
variety pack, and the red Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine.

You can read our earlier coverage of the Nescafe Dolce Gusto here, and as we stated earlier - expect a review soon.

I can't decide between the Keurig and the new Dolce Gusto either!! Keurig is great for everyday use and you can buy an adapter to use your own brand (I'm an illy fan). But for company entertaining I think the Dolce Gusto is going to be more of a hit because guests are likely to drink an occasional latte or mochachocochino or one of the cooler sounding coffee drinks (and my teenage kids too). It's too bad this first model doesn't have a filter for water and more flavor options but I think that will change if this becomes a hit. But the Dolce Gusto selections will always be in the Nescafe/Nespresso family. What a cool looking design, too. I actually bought the Keurig Breville Platinum but the Dolce Gusto turned my head before the Keurig came out of the box. Tomorrow I will test both at Sur La Table in Newport Beach. They have both brands at their store and ready to demonstrate. I have a hunch the Keurig is going back and the Dolce Gusto is coming home with me. I wish I had room for both in my kitchen!

With the recent purchase of the Dolce Gusto, we now have two machines, the DG and a Keurig. They both get lots of use. The variety of coffees on the Keurig can't be beat -- plus they have tea. The Dolce Gusto rocks the espresso/cappuccino niche without you having to be a schooled barista.

So the red Dolce Gusto sits next to the glowing blue Keurig B70...

The machine looks amazing! Whats a person to get? A Kuerig or the Dolce Gusto? I have limited counter space but I am leaning toward this machine. I am on a tight budget with the wedding and all! :-)))

Wonder how it stacks up to Nespresso?? Since it is the same company I'm guessing Nespresso is the higher end. Kind of like Toyota and Lexus...

Over here at the Wiz we have been using the US model for several months now and I am also very very impressed. The coffee is great and the cappuccino and lattes are fantastic. IMHO this machine is going to be a huge hit!!! :)
