I’m thrilled to be one of the 11 bloggers selected by NescaféDolce Gusto to try out their new coffee machine. Confession: I’m an absolute coffee addict, I literally cannot start my day without a cup of the good stuff. It’s like my morning cappuccino includes mood lifting ingredients. Instant coffee doesn’t always hit the spot, and I often find myself waiting in a queue somewhere to get my hands on a decent cappuccino.
Those days are over, because I now have my very own NescaféDolce Gusto coffee machine which can do everything from a simple cappuccino to a mocha- and you can win one too!
I received my coffee machine on Friday and was waiting for my hubby to get back from Dbn so he could take photos of me opening it- it took every ounce of self-control I had not to try it out immediately 🙂
The machine is super quick and easy to use, and also doesn’t take up that much space in my teeny tiny kitchen. I’m also not a fan of appliances which take longer to clean than they take to use, so I was particularly excited that all I had to do was throw my flavour capsules away and give the machine a quick wipe: cleaning = done.
The machine offers 11 different flavour choices which come in the form of capsules – there is something for everyone. These are not just flavours though, they’re completely different drinks. 1 Nescafé Dolce Gusto machine = 11 different drinks. All you do is pop a capsule into the machine, and it creates a coffee masterpiece. I’m particularly pleased that there is a Tea Latte option, so my non coffee loving hubby isn’t going to feel left out and I’m also looking forward to trying out the Cappuccino Ice flavour- how cool that the machine can make hot and cold drinks? Other fab flavours include caramel latte macchiato, mocha, chococino and espresso intenso- for the more hardcore peeps out there.
Now I’ve seen some home coffee machines which really don’t create a product anything close to what you’d get in a coffee shop. With the NescaféDolce Gusto, it’s like having your own (good looking) barista propped up on your kitchen counter 😉
I tried the chococino this weekend, and it tasted exactly like my favourite coffee shop version. It also literally took 2 minutes to make.
I’m also excited about the fact that I can be sure of what goes into my cappuccino – I can’t count the number of times I’ve asked for a skinny cappuccino (how else am I supposed to justify that shortbread?!) and been given a blank stare. All the capsules specify the kj content so I can include that in my obsessive daily calorie counting 🙂
In the coming weeks, I’ll post details about the competition – where you’ll stand a chance to win a coffee machine of your own 🙂
There are 10 other bloggers who are also giving away coffee machines on their blogs. Each blogger has been paired with a flavour, and you need to guess the flavour to stand a chance to win. To get in on the action, you need to go to the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Facebook Page.
Here’s to a new era of coffee fabulosity!
