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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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..

I got my machine two days ago. Before I decided to buy it I did a lot of research and reading. I owned a Melody 1 which is actually only a water heater. Read morePublished 19 months ago by MarioS
