Summary: Love this machine. Its small but delivers a great cappucchino. I tried a few other flavors and they were just ok. The cappucchino is the best! In just a few seconds, you'll impress anyone. I love it!
Summary: I found the Piccolo at 50% discount last November and the machine is still going strong! Easy to use and clean. Thus far, have tried the cappuccino, Lungo, Americano, Espresso, and Chococino and have been greatly satisfied with Cappucino. Lungo is also good and so is hot chocolate even though I'm not much into the latter. It's a lot of fun using clear glass to watch the cappuccino filling the container in black and caramel colors.
Summary: Mine just came today and I made my 1st drink - cappuccino - and it was so good! After reading in some of the reviews that it was hard to determine how much water to use or the drink would be too weak, I just watched the color of the liquid and estimated based on how full my cup was. I turned it off when the liquid just started to turn lighter/clearer, and when it seemed like my mug had filled up the number of ounces it recommended. It was perfect!
Summary: I had the Nespresso unit and thought the coffee was fantastic and very different from all the other makers, since I had a Tassimmo and a Senseo as well. The Dolce Gusto caught my eye as the Variety was greater than the Nespresso. I bought the lower cost Piccolo from Walmart and tried the Cappocino, Lungo, Americano and the Dark roast. I thought that all were terrific.
Summary: This little machine can do a LOT. At first, I was worried because of some of the bad reviews on this machine, but I am pleased with the performance and quality of the drinks that this thing makes. No, you can't use your own coffee in this coffee maker, which is a bit of a let down I will say that. BUT, Nescafe makes a "house brew" coffee capsule which is kinda like Foldgers breakfast blend.
Summary: Have to admit, this is a pretty good machine.. Does a great job of producing an instant cup of your choice. The Dolce heats up quickly and produces on demand. There are many other options out there but the price for the unit itself was very affordable compared to others currently on the market. The only negative is the price of the coffee/drink packets. I am being very conservative on my use of the Dolce because of the products themselves.
Summary: My Dolce Gusto machine has been a big help at university. I got a Keurig for my birthday and didn't like any of their drip coffees. I have always been a latte/cappuccino drinker, but it is a little difficult to make those in a dorm room without a proper espresso machine. This product was the next best thing. I can get my cappuccino/latte fix and it is quite tasty. I wouldn't compare it to one made with an actual espresso machine, but it gets the job done.
Summary: The coffee maker is great. I love it. My concern is finding cuplets to fit my coffee maker..the coffee maker had a starter kit which was good but finding new ones and the kind that one would like is difficult.
Summary: I am a long time loyal senseo user. Lately, the pods are becoming harder to find, and I always wanted something a little more versatile than the senseo so I decided to purchase this machine. So far I am quite happy with it! I like the small amount of counter space it takes, and I like that I can control the strength of my coffee. I have tried the cappuccino, caffe lingo and cafe Americano so far and all three were quite good, better tasting coffee than the senseo.
