Make Lattes and Macchiatos at Home with the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Genio™

genio-dolce-gustoOne of my all time weaknesses in life is a quality cup of coffee. I have an addiction to a good mug of strong  coffee and need at least two cups a day to properly function. Sadly, it doesn’t just stop at a regular cup of coffee. I really love the specialty coffee house drinks that I get from my local “chain” coffee shop. Unfortunately, my wallet does not share the same love. Some drinks are upwards of $5 and I buy them multiple times per day.

Dolce-Gusto-by-DelonghiSad, I know BUT there is hope! My latest and most treasured review is saving the day, and providing me with some tasty drinks.

Dolce-GustoCaramel Macchiatos, Lungo (velvety cream over bold espresso), Cappuccinos-both hot and iced,  Cafe Au Lait, and more! Thanks to the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Genio™ you can make these coffee house specialty beverages and more!

Dolce-Gusto-podsThe best part? With a small investment of $129, you can enjoy the very same beverages you can buy at coffeehouses but for a fraction of the price! The NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Genio™ does take special pods made specifically for this machine, but they are relatively inexpensive when you consider the $5+ a cup I spend on my weekly Macchiato! For under $10 you can get a box of 16 cups of specialty coffee!!


Froths the milk!

A few features that I personally love about the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Genio™ is that it for one it can do much more than the similar priced competition. Regular single served coffee machines do not have the ability to brew a fancy drink with 15 bars of pressure. I love how the easy to follow guide also tells you how exactly to set the bars for each drink.


Next up is the espresso

Making a fancy drink literally takes seconds! I am so impressed with how quick, authentic, and downright tasty my caramel macchiato drink was! At first try I thought the drink would taste generic, watered down or cheap. However, it was so delicious, and tasted just like what I get at my favorite chain coffee shop!


What a beautiful, and superb drink!

See how pretty this drink is? The layers of frothy milk, and espresso are just too good! I love how this tiny little powerhouse can produce a piping hot, and perfectly tasty drink!

Overall, this is a gem of a coffee and specialty hot beverage maker! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great tasting espresso beverage. Right now *for a limited time* you can get this machine for $129.99 and get 5 FREE drinks with it!! An almost $200 value!!
