NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Mini Me Drink Maker Review:

So this week I was asked if I would like to review the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Mini Me. I loved the sound of the coffee maker but I had never drank coffee. I had a good idea they would also sell hot chocolate pots so was excited to try it out.

My Coffee Maker Arrived Very Speedy: It was a lovely surprise when the post lady knocked on the door Saturday afternoon with my parcel. A speedy delivery at this time of year is always welcome! Having guests around who love coffee in the house a bonus. What better time to try it out?

Are You Making Us A Drink Of Coffee Then? I was trying to read the instructions all I got was a “come on when you making us a drink?” Once I started making them I ran out of special cups to serve them in, everyone wanted to try one.

1st Cup Of Coffee, Ever!! Last but not least, I eventually got to try one, to say it was my first ever cup (vanilla latte macchiato) I really enjoyed it. Slightly rich tasting, as the glass went down it started to taste better. It is still early days, I may convert to a coffee drinker yet?! 30 years after my 1st cup of tea. Who would have thought it.?

Impressive How Quickly It Goes From Cold To Hot. I was really impressed with the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Mini Me, I have never seen a cup of coffee go from cold water to a hot drink so quickly.

Coffee Maker That Is Quick And Easy To Use:

Essentially you fill up the water at back, switch the machine on for about 30 secs wait for the light to go green from flashing red. Put whichever pod you want in. Select the plastic switch based on what it says on the pod. Put cup or glass in. Then turn on hot or cold depending on choice.

Sometimes you use two pods for one drink. It mixes lovely. Certainly for people watching it has the wow factor. It smells great and most importantly tastes great.

Input From Visitors And Family:

Mother in Law– 55 yrs a coffee drinker— Tried Cappuccino, very impressed 9 out 10. Made even better when biscuit tin arrived!!

Partner of Ma in Law— 50 yrs a coffee drinker Tried Cappuccino Found it a bit unusual 8 out 10, then added two sugars became a 10 out of 10!! Sometimes the simple things please.

2nd Eldest son— Waiting for hot chocolate.

Husband— 42 years a tea and coffee hater… Impressed with machine loved how it mixed in, how quick it got hot. Did he try it? No… You cannot please some people!!
