I was Blessed to receive a NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO Coffee Machine and a variety of coffee capsules for Review

The holidays really snuck up on me this year!  Hubby and I have kept our entertaining very simple.  We haven’t thrown any huge parties so far except for Thanksgiving.  But we do like to have friends and family over for coffee and dessert.  Entertaining is easy on a budget with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO Coffee Machine.  I just serve a variety of beverages and a homemade cake and it’s a party!

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is Compact, Stylish and Modern!

My kitchen is large but counter space is at a premium, which is why I’m in love with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO!  Between the toaster, cookie jars, knife blocks and other necessities on my counter I need every inch of space there is.  The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO is smaller than my other one-cup brewers.  It’s narrower and shorter from top to bottom.  If you live in an apartment, dormitory or are going to use your GENIO in an office you’ll appreciate how little space this powerful Coffee Maker takes up.  I even hesitate to call the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO a coffee maker because you can create so many beverages with this mighty little machine.

Create the perfect Latte, Cappuccino, Mocha and more at home with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO Coffee Machine

All of my Readers know that I’m a huge fan of coffee and coffee drinks.  I start my day with a cup of coffee and end my day with one as well.  What I’m not a fan of is paying the tab at my local coffee shop for lattes, cappuccinos and specialty drinks no matter how cute their red holiday cups are, thank you very much.  The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO Coffee Machine is affordable and actually pays for itself after a few months of use.

Imagine the fun you’ll have brewing 15 different hot and cold beverages at home, including hot coffee, espresso, iced tea and chilled cappuccino in the very same compact, beautifully designed single-serve coffee machine for a fraction of the cost of what you’d pay at a coffee shop.  There’s no waiting in a crowded store and no waiting for a machine to heat up.  The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto by De’Longhi creates coffee-house quality beverages complete with heavenly crema, the yummy froth layer on top of espresso!

Your Drink, Your Way!

What’s your drink of choice?  Chococino, Espresso, Mocha?  Maybe you enjoy Caffè Americano first thing in the morning.  The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO allows you to customize your beverage so it’s the way you like it every time.  Just fill the water tank on the back of the machine with cold water, press the on/off button and choose your beverage.  The smart scroll wheel lets you dial up to the correct recipe and size for the drink you’re creating.  Specialty drinks like cappuccinos and lattes use two capsules.  The first is a milk capsule, which creates a creamy, frothy steamed milk layer and the other is the coffee capsule, which provides the bold coffee flavor!   I like mild coffee so I “dial up” just a bit and my drinks are perfect!

I’m always looking for ways to save calories, who isn’t?  I’m addicted to the Skinny Latte Macchiato.  It’s so rich, creamy and flavorful I already ordered a box of Skinny Cappuccino with the welcome code that’s included in the box.

The GENIO Coffee Maker is great for entertaining and it makes a lovely gift!

We’re planning on exchanging gifts on Christmas Eve at my house followed by dessert and coffee, which is always part of our holiday celebration.
