coffee machine reviews

Design ****

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio doesn’t take up a huge amount of space and has a bit of a quirky, modern look to it.

Easy to use ****

It is straightforward to set up, although written instructions would have been better than the diagrams provided.

Pleasant to use/nice ritual as break from home working **

It is quicker than instant coffee, and therefore not much of a break from home working. There’s no ritual to it either.

Easy to clean *

It should be straightforward but the water pours everywhere when you try and clean it, leaving your worktop flooded with water.

Economical to buy and use *

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio machine itself costs about £100 and then you’re looking at about £11 for 48 capsules, so if you buy to try, it could be expensive if you don’t like the range.

Quality of coffee *

After a taste of the latte, the rest was poured down the sink. Even without the UHT milk provided, the coffee itself wasn’t that great and there’s a limited range available. Once the UHT milk was added it worsened the taste.

Stars overall ** 2

Best for

Someone who would like a quick cup of coffee and doesn’t mind UHT milk.

With thanks to Nescafe Dolce Gusto for supplying the machine for our home working coffee machine reviews.
