I love coffee. And I really adore specialty drinks. But, there really isn’t a great coffee shop that I love in my town, so I am glad that I can make awesome drinks at home using the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio.

Our Thoughts On The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio

We love the specialty flavors that came with our machine which included: Caramel Latte Macchiato, Chococino, Skinny Latte Macchiato and Chai Tea Latte. My husband and daughter both love the Chococino most. It seriously tastes like drinking real chocolate {not the stuff that comes in a pack}. My favorite is the Chai Tea Latte, though I also especially love the Caramel Latte Macchiato. I really hope to try the Cappuccino really soon, too, as I typically love those at specialty coffee shops.

How To Operate The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio

Making a drink with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio is really easy. For this demonstration, we are making a Caramel Latte Macchiato. First, you turn on the machine and wait for the power button to turn green.

Next, you take out the cartridge and insert the first coffee capsule that you are going to use. After you close the cartridge back, pull down the silver lever.

The drinks that we had all required 2 capsules and easy to follow instructions are on each box. Select Hot or Cold to begin brewing. Repeat the previous steps with your 2nd capsule for your drink and voila!

The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Is Not Just For Drinks

We made Ghirardelli Caramel Turtle Brownies the other night, but instead of using ll the milk that it called for, we substituted half Caramel Latte Macchiato. The brownies turned out really well and tasted very much like caramel. Yum!

  1. Never thought of using it for recipes like brownies – great idea!! Maybe I’ll get one of these for Christmas. 🙂

  2. Sherry Compton says

    Lots of flavor options. While my husband normally just wants plain dark, he likes flavors occasionally. It’s fun to mix it up, especially nice in the evenings. Hope the coffee area is still working for you.

  28. kelly Nicholson says
