Nestle's Dolce Gusto Coffee Debuts at Wal-Mart Stores Nationwide

dolcegustonewmachines_more.jpg

Nestle will begin selling Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee makers in 2,000 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. outlets across the U.S. this month, taking on Green Mountain Coffee Roaster Inc. in its main market. Wal-Mart stores are selling the machines at prices starting at $89.88.

At stake is a larger share of the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. coffee market, where Green Mountain has about an 85 percent share for single-serve brewers with its Keurig machine. A really interesting fact is according to Janney Montgomery Scott LLC. U.S. grocery spending on coffee will increase 40 percent to $11.5 billion in the five years through 2014 which means the single serve coffee market should grow grow grow.

So they had the Piccolo on display with two or three in stock in a brown eco-deco style oval box. I was able to grab the new Vanilla Macchiato, but they didn't have the new Dark Roast I wanted to try (too bad). They also had (IIRC) Espresso, Caffe Lungo, Lungo Decaf, and Mocha. I hope they get more flavors. Keurig and Tassimo had big end cap displays but no fanfare for the little Nescafe. Oh, the prices, $90 for the machine, $9 for the coffee. I took some pictures because I'm a weirdo, maybe I'll post them in the forum.

I just got an email from Nescafe with a link to this ad on Walmart. I think I'll run over to my local store and pick up some flavors I haven't tried yet.

I noticed the article was from earlier in the month so I did a search on walmart.com and came up with the Piccolo for $90 and the Melody 2 for $130 (online only). Not coffee in sight (yet, hopefully). I would expect the automatic model to have a wider appeal so we'll see what happens.

This is terrific news. Where there's coffee machines there must be coffee, right? No more trips to Bed Bath and Beyond. I was very close to chucking my machine on ebay and getting a Keurig just so I could buy coffee anywhere I wanted. Now if they could just make a capsule that makes more than 6oz of coffee at once (...the Americano does not.)

Oh, I just noticed a new flavor on their website. Vanilla Latte Machiatto...

Is the fully automatic model available in Canada? I checked at Home Outfitters and they only sell the other 3 models. Same deal with most other stores in my area. A quick check on the Canadian Dolce Gusto site isn't any more promising since the automatic model is nowhere to be found.
