Review: Nescafé Dolce Gusto Mini Me Pod Coffee Machine

Coffee that little word that gives me some sort of reprieve each morning, whether I’m drinking it in a thermo cup on the way to work or sitting down outside watching the boys play, it gives me a moment to just relax.
I have had a long history with coffee which I will shorten for your benefit…it sounds like this:

  • I don’t like coffee, tea for me please
  • I bought a cafe with my family, maybe I should learn to drink what I am serving
  • I love coffee, my favourite being a Skinny Mocha
  • Sold the cafe, starting working in a coffee roasting company I knew all the ins and outs of the coffee bean and could make a mean cup of coffee
  • Bought a flashy expensive coffee machine for home that used ground coffee
  • Had children, didn’t have time to use my flashy coffee machine
  • Pod machines became popular I was given one for Mother’s Day 18 months ago- best invention ever – quick, easy, minimal mess
So that’s my coffee journey quickly for you. I love the concept of a pod coffee machine because they are just so quick and easy and you get a good quality cup of coffee without any extra cleaning up or drawn out process and the best thing you don’t have to get in the car to get it.
I was gifted the Nescafé Mini Me Dolce Gusto pod machine and I couldn’t be happier with it.
The main points that standout for me are:

  • Heats the coffee hotter then any other pod machine I have used
  • It could also make cold drinks like Iced Teas
  • The clean up is minimal, you dispose of the pod as soon as you finish, no catch container with a build up of pods.

  • It fits in a corner perfectly, compact and kinda cute.
  • The box tells which position or the automatic cut off lever should be set at for a perfect strength every time.

  • Pods can be bought from most major supermarkets, no special shops or ordering online
  • They are launching a Mocha Pod this month – yay

This would make an ideal Christmas present for someone special (like my own mum).

RRP: $149 AUD
Available for purchase from most major supermarkets and Harvey Norman.
Capsules are $8 for 16 some are all coffee pods other boxes are 8 coffee/8 milk.

    Got my Mini Me for Christmas and couldn’t be happier with it. We also have another coffee machine, but there was always so much to clean up afterwards, I didn’t use it. This is so so simple. I use it at least twice a day every day. Love it!!!!!

  5. With the use of coffee maker, it is even easier to prepare your own coffee. There are several brands of coffee makers that you can consider that differs according to functionality and quality. Thank for sharing!

    Coffee machine helps us extract the brewed taste of coffee that we want. But having the

    in the house is a greater help for us to have the great taste of coffee.
