Summary: This is the best coffee machine! The coffee capsules are great, unlike other capsules the coffee in them is finely ground. I've had this machine for over 6 years now and it has never failed to deliver a great cup of coffee.
Summary: I bought this machine for my office a couple of years ago. First of all, every cup of cappiccino for example will end up costing you more than a $1! and after a few months of use, the machine starting leaking hot water all over the place, so we had to try to get it fixed, which after a few more months due to the same problem ended in the garbage can in the parking lot!
Summary: When I first got this item I was in love with it. After I've had it for about a year and a half now, I'm quite unhappy with it. The quality of coffee isn't the best, the taste could be better. The very difficult thing is finding coffee to go with it. Unless you are happy ONLY being able to order your coffee online, you are just going to be unhappy. While we living in England I was able to find the coffee at tesco or Salisbury's.
Summary: We used this machine in Germany for 10 years... The Germany made product was great! The US spec is terrible! We purchased two when we moved back to the states, one for home and one for my husband's office. Neither one of them worked! We sent one back to the company 4 weeks ago and have not heard anything... We are getting ready to send the second one back tomorrow. They have stopped selling their product in stores, you can only order online.
Summary: I've tried this machine but have to return it back to the store. Here are two of my major complains: 1. You have to stay by the machine while it makes the coffee - it doesn't stop automatically - you need to pull the switch back. 2. The selection of coffees they offer for this maker is very limited comparing to other brands or makes. No organic choices at all. 3. It's noisier than other machines too.
Summary: i bought this for my daughter used at a resale store. i tried it and was very pleased with the results. i am very picky about my coffee, not to be mistaken for fancy, i just like good basic coffee with crema on top and i am used to the european super automatic machines which my daughter cannot afford, and this dolce gusto produces coffee very close to that.
Summary: I recently acquired the DG Melody II machine. It is easy to set up. The machine feels a bit plastic, but not flimsy. So far, I have tried Americano and Cappuccino, and they are amazingly good and balanced. They taste like what you buy from coffee shops. Different drinks are easy to make and fast to produce also. The temperature of the coffee coming out from the machine is quite hot, about 184 F. Some reviewers complained about not being hot enough.
Summary: I got this as a Christmas gift for my wife. So far we've only tried the latte macciato and the hot chocolate (cocochino) flavors but she likes both of them. The machine is easy enough to use, although an auto shut off option may be worth the extra money (the creativa model has this option). As it is you have to decide when to turn off the machine so you have that control over the strength of the coffee but its hard to get the reccommended amount.
Summary: I have a Keurig B60 and the most of the coffee is just so so.This coffee is phenominal. It has a very bold dark, rich and unique flavor..I am reviewing the coffee because unlike other single brew coffee makers, you have no choice other than to use dolce gusto (nestles)coffee in this machine. That might seem as a serious limitation, but believe me it is worth it. I do hope nestles releases some more flavors, especially decaf as there is only one so far.......
