Dolce Gusto Single Serve Coffee

I thought it would be appropriate to post this here and spread information about a great product.

I am a student and no way affiliated with Nescafe.
Last week I purchased their Dolce Gusto Melody 2 machine and a few boxes of cappuccino pods.

I am a big coffee fan but not because I "need" it in the morning, rather I enjoy the taste and drink it when reading the news.

I used to go to a coffee shop where a cappuccino was priced between $4 and 5$ and to be honest I didn't particularly enjoy it because each time it was a different worker and rarely did I feel they got it right.

I was debating the Keurig machine as it is a more established single serve coffee brand but the biggest absence is the cappuccino feature. With Keurig you can purchase cappuccino flavored pods but in my experience, every Keurig pod I had a very chemical aftertaste.

At $.90 per cappuccino the Dolce Gusto gets it right every time because the user makes the cappuccino themselves. The best part is it only consists of inserting the pod, and turning the setting to "hot" (as opposed to "cold" which is used for iced cappuccino or peach tea) and once the fluid turns translucent you turn it off and switch to the coffee pod.

I purchased this particular machine at only $100 which is actually cheaper than coffee house drinks after a matter of a few weeks, considering I used to pay $25 per week for coffee.

My favorite part about the Dolce Gusto machine is that its a system. The entire Dolce Gusto brand by Nescafe really appears to be customer-centric, as opposed to pure profit centric. For example, with every box of coffee pods users receive reward points and once you buy 10 boxes you get a free box in addition to the one you get for free for just registering the machine. At the rate at which I drink coffee, I will receive a free box of coffee every other month.

Did I mention this machine makes the best cappuccino that I ever had? (I tried Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, various places in New York, England, Italy and the Balkans and this is the best, not to mention I made it myself)

If you're interested, they are sold on Amazon.

I have seen them but never tried them and didnt know they were made by Nestle.

I am a Nespresso user - same system (but only coffee - no cappucino unless you get the milk frothing machine) also by Nestle. How weird they should make two?
