The Pros, 1. Dolce Gusto uses a 2 capsule process to make cappuccino (one for milk, another for the coffee) which is the only capsule machine I found that would do it (without adding a milk tank). 2., the results are quite good - equal to what I would pay for at a StarBucks or other store 3., it did not take long to tweak the timing and have the machine memorize my preferred settings., 4 it's quick, even using the two pod coffees or hot chocolate (the menu screen on the Creativa lets you memorize settings). The Cons, 1., I think the water tank could have been a little larger, 2., drinks are not quite as hot as I would prefer., 3., I need my 2X power reading glasses to read the menu. 4., the adjustable height cup platform is tweaky. Pricing on this model varies wildly, up to $60-$70 difference online, I never found this model in a retail store. I watched Amazon for a couple of months before finally buying when it went on sale. If you want one, be patient and watch for the best price. Some Dolce Gusto capsules are available in stores but best selection of flavors is on Amazon so I just order them (cappuccino is hard to find in stores).

Some Background - I made the mistake of figuring out how much money I was spending on coffee at various venues and was a bit taken back (do the same and you may be horrified). Then, while traveling, a client had an office grade capsule type coffee maker and I was (for the first time ever) really impressed with the quality. One striking feature was a 2-capsule cappuccino it made (1 for the milk, 2nd for the coffee) that was surprisingly good. Cappuccino is my favorite by far so I began searching for a home coffee machine that used a similar process. The Dolce Gusto is the only one I found that did it.

I've never been much of a coffee guy; in fact, i used to hate it. Over the past coupe of years, my palate has changed and now I can't get enough of coffee . . . particularly specialty coffee. Since then I've been a regular Starbucks customer. Their lattes, macchiatos, and espressos are delicious but oh so costly. After assessing my monthly spendings, I decided it was time for a change. Enter the Dolce Gusto Creativa!

This machine may "look good" but aesthetics wasn't my reason in choosing it over Starbucks own machine or the Tassimo for that matter. My cousin introduced me to the Dolce Gusto and I instantly fell in love. It appeals directly to a person like me who is all about specialty coffee drinks. Although my cousin did warn me that setting it up for the first time could be difficult (getting a "no water" warning), I didn't have that problem. After she called customer service, they informed me that the "no water" warning is actually pretty common and they ran her through a process to correct it. Apparently the "fix" is just to re-run the "start-up rinse" cycle a few times and the water will eventually enter the machine.

With that said, let's get to an actual review!

The machine is super easy to use. You scroll through a list of drinks and select the one you want. Once the drink is selected, it will request that you insert the first pod. The machine will instantly start dispensing the exact amount needed for that exact drink and then once finished, will request the second pod. This is how it works for specialty drinks. If you're making a regular coffee or espresso, the pod has to be in the machine prior to selecting it. This is because regular drinks start automatically once selecting.

I bought this item as a 'Santa' present for myself and my husband for Christmas 2011, and we've used it almost every day since then! I love coffee drinks like Lattes and Macchiatos from a big brand name coffee shop, and the ones I can now make at home save me time and money, and the flavor is just as good, sometimes better! I especially like the vanilla latte and the caramel latte flavors, and my husband is a big fan of the american house blend coffee. My parents have a Tassimo at their house, and I have a Keurig at my work, and I find that I like the taste of the coffee drinks (lattes/macchiatos) from the Dolce Gusto much more. The Creativa is a very smart machine, offering to save our customized versions (my hubby likes extra coffee, sometimes I like extra milk in my coffee drinks), brews very quickly, and isn't nearly as noisy as the 1st generation Tassimo my parents have at their house! Love love love love love this machine!!!

The Dolce Gusto Creativa is easy to use, including saving customized settings to adjust drink strength. The water reservoir is more than adequate for daily use, including rinse cycles, and although the pump is a little louder than I expected, it's not distracting even in a closed office space.

I'm a long-time coffee drinker, so many of the 'standard' settings are a bit too weak for my taste. I started with a variety pack of capsules, then settled on a combination of Caffe Grande Intensivo and Caffe Lungo as the best selection for me. The milk-based drinks are tasty, but a bit too milky for my taste; but fortunately, you can customize the mix by clicking the brew button part of the way through the cycle - and the Creativa will then politely ask if you would like to save your customized settings for future use. Better than having to stand there and hold the lever while you count the seconds..
