NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Coffee Machine
This product was recommended by Piyushi Dhir from Help and Wellness
In my opinion, Dolce Gusto is better than Tassimo for one reason, the cost. The pods for the Dolce Gusto are by far more cost-effective, and there are a wider variety of pods available. My choice of coffee machine is the Dolce Gusto Genio, a 2 capsule coffee machine that delivers a thick, creamy cup of coffee. Personally, it is the most versatile coffee/espresso machine I have owned. My favorite part is the size, it does not take up a lot of counter space, and would recommend this product.
Nescafe Dolce Gusto Majesto
This product was recommended by Katie Woodburn-Simmonds from Home Coffee Expert
The Majesto looks like it came out of a 70s sci-fi tv show and we love it for that. Not your usual coffee machine in looks but produces your favorite Dolce Gusto pods with ease and consistently excellent quality. The design isn’t for everyone but for those looks for a machine that is more of a statement piece than mere appliance, it’s a fantastic option.
Tassimo Bosch T12 Vivy Coffee Machine
This product was recommended by Melanie Musson from BroadFormInsurance
Not only can the Tassimo brew an excellent espresso, but it also makes delicious teas, hot chocolate, and drip coffee drinks. You can’t buy compatible pods from other manufacturers, but Tassimo has many partners, so you can purchase a wide variety of Tassimo pods using products from Tim Horton, Kenco, Gevalia, and many more. Finally, Tassimo machines look like espresso machines. They’re traditional and sophisticated. The Dolce Gusto machine looks futuristic and doesn’t complement the style of most homes.
