Every mom deserves a little me time now and then. While everyone’s idea of me time may vary, most of us will accept something as small as enjoying a cup of coffee without interruptions as me time. I love to wake up before my daughter, turn on the news, open up the windows to let the cool fall air come in and sit and enjoy a good cup of coffee in the mornings. While I’d much rather buy that $4.25 Pumpkin Spiced Latte from the coffee shop down the road, that just can’t happen everyday. My solution to my problem of wanting gourmet coffee at half the price (without having to leave the house) is the new Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio coffee machine ($129.99).
Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio coffee machine brews your favorite coffee house treats in less than one minute. No, really! This is a coffee machine made for those who live with style, boldness and individuality and who want their cup of coffee their way. They offers tons of coffee house favorites like Iced Cappuccinos, Chai Tea Lattes, Mochas, Peach Iced Tea and even Caramel Latte Macchiato at a fraction of the price. They even have “skinny” versions of your favorites. Plus, the machine is small, easy to clean and won’t break the bank.
Each beverage made with the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio machine is made using only high quality ingredients like specially selected coffee beans, rich chocolate, foamy milk, and is even finished with a perfect layer of fresh crema. Why pay tons of money each month for your daily coffee indulgence from coffee houses when you can do it at home in your pajamas?
What makes the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio machine different than other single brew coffee machines out there?
This is by far the quickest single brew coffee machine I’ve ever used. The statement about the coffee machine being able to brew a cup of coffee in less than a minute is absolutely true. Also, the custom scroll wheel and flow stop capabilities allow you to craft a perfectly customized cup of coffee, just like your favorite coffee house.
This coffee machine is designed with a 15-bar pressure system which is comparable to those used in professional coffee shops. The professional-caliber pressure works by very quickly and evenly distributing water over the coffee grounds which results in a bolder, more flavorful coffee and even that delicious crema.
The 21oz water reservoir makes about three full cups of coffee which, in my opinion, is perfect. I’m not a fan of having a ton of water sit on my counter at one time. I prefer to have fresher water with each cup of coffee.
What truly makes this coffee machine ideal for every household is the smaller size. The Genio model is the most popular in the Dolce Gusto line and features an amazing compact, space saving penguin-looking design. This coffee machine was even awarded the 2014 Consumer Reports Award and 2014 Gold Edison Award for it’s design.
About the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Capsules:
Nescafe’s patented Smart Capsule technology seals in the freshness of the coffee beans and is like no other single serve pod on the market. The grounds are precisely tamped into each smart capsule which are then sealed to preserve freshness for up to one year. Nescafe currently offers 19 different flavors of hot and cold beverages.
The specialty milk-based beverages use a two-capsule system with a separate milk pod containing hormone-free milk which provides a frothy beverage without the mess and complexity of a frother.
Why does The NapTime Reviewer love the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio machine?
Besides the fact that all of the beverages we’ve tried are delicious, we love that there is virtually no clean up with this coffee machine. Plus,the small size of the machine is super impressive and takes up so much less counter space than the other single serve coffee brewers out there.
This coffee machine is ideal for smaller homes, apartments, dorms, the work place and any other living space. The boxes of coffee capsules are extremely affordable (around $10 each) and this would end up being a huge money saver for those who buy their coffee at a coffee house each day. It would also make a great Christmas, housewarming or wedding gift.
