Woohoo! I don’t need to remind you all how much I LOVE coffee, do I? If you forgot, you can check my cartoon version of myself & you’ll notice that I’m holding a nice hot cup of Joe. The only thing better than a quiet moment to myself with a mug of coffee, is making fancy coffee drinks for Woof Woof Papa, our friends and family! Well lucky me, I’m participating in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and received product samples so that I could tell you all about it.

We’ve been having SO much fun testing out the Dolce Gusto Genio from NESCAFÉ, and besides being super easy to use, it’s also super fast and versatile, making it perfect for holiday get-togethers and entertaining. What really sets it apart from other coffee makers is that the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is the only machine that truly delivers delicious, coffee house quality creations every time with patented smart capsule technology delivering up to 15 bars of professional pressure and espresso technology. You can go from making a Chai Latte to a Caramel Macchiato with no fuss or muss thanks to their uniquely designed capsules.

You just choose the coffee capsule for the type of drink you want to make, and the label shows you how much water you’ll need. Then you just dial it up on the machine and press GO. It makes hot and cold drinks…which we love since we’re in Florida and it sometimes gets too hot to fuss with hot drinks even for a coffee-holic like me!

The variety of drink choices makes it perfect for a holiday party, cookie exchange, brunch or anything other entertaining. You can set up a coffee bar with all kinds of extras and let each guest create their own unique & fancy drink. I found some chocolate and peppermint stir sticks that everyone loves. And don’t forget the mini marshmallows, cinnamon sprinkles and definitely some whiskey for Irish Coffee if everyone is 21 and over at your gathering!

And as much as I love the fancy drinks, I usually try to limit them to special occasions or as a treat since they’re higher in calories than I can afford or recommend for daily intake. I’m really happy that the Dolce Gusto has Skinny Latte capsules and also makes an amazing Espresso and Caffè Americano for Dairy-Free coffee options. My review kit came with the machine plus several varieties to sample, and I’ve already ordered a box of Caffè Lungo (literally a “long coffee”) which is a “stretched” espresso…my new favorite black coffee drink AND a box of Espresso which really hits the spot after dinner and can also be used to make Cuban Coffee or “cafecito” as it’s known down here in South Florida, which the hubby really loves. Just add sugar and serve in adorable little cups!

  1. Ahhh the penguin machine. I wish the pods were as easy to get as the keurig ones are. They dominate all the stores. I will use your discount. Thanks!
