Nescafe Dolce Gusto Machine – Model Genio S Touch Review

I bought a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine on 16th May 2023 at Mid Valley, KL.

I was looking for a coffee machine for quite sometimes just don’t know what type should I buy. At the end, I decided to buy a capsule coffee machine for easy maintenance and less clutters to keep all other coffee blends.

Besides, the capsules have different flavours from espresso, americano, cafe latte and caramel.

nescafe gusto dolce and starbucks capsules
nescafe gusto dolce and starbucks capsules

The Nescafe Dolce Gusto – Genio S Touch

1) Water hotness have 3 levels (normal, medium hot and hot)
2) Water level can change according to a capsule water level needs
3) Easy to replace capsule

What I like?

1) The coffee the machines produces has lots of tasty bubble.
2) I like the taste of the americano and espresso. I think  it is better than Starbucks 🙂
3) Easy to use

What I don’t like

1) It takes time before the water stops dripping from the capsule after blend. So either I have to wait till no more drip, or just take the capsule out and make sure the water is not drip on the floor etc.

Price

I bought it at RM699 at that time with free of one capsule box of 16 capsules, starbucks mug and a tote bag.

Where To Buy

You can buy online at:

Buy Nescafe Dolce Gusto Machine

or at shopee nescafe dolce gusto, there are lots of sellers selling the machine.

Conclusion

I’m happy with my purchase. For the past 4 months using it, I would rate it 5/5 stars.
