Dolce Gusto Piccolo Review

After weeks of deliberating I decided on treating myself to a Coffee Machine. Sounds simple enough right? Wrong! There are so many makes and models out there that after ten minutes on browsing my mind felt like it was going to explode! 

Trying to find one that was a reasonable price, was attractive and a good model was really tough! I didn't want to pay too much but did want to invest in a solid model and I wanted it to be small as I have limited space in my kitchen. I absolutely love coffee especially Latte's and Cappuccino's so I knew I wanted a machine that made those and did not just want a simple drip machine. I also wanted to jump on the "pod" bandwagon as I think it is such an inventive idea and perfect for my early morning rush! 

After a while I found the machine that was perfect for me;
The DeLonghi Dolce Gusto Piccolo!

"The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Piccolo by Delonghi is a small, simple and quick solution to preparing a number of delicious hot and cold drinks in the comfort of your own home. You can chose from a large variety of Nescafe Dolce Gusto capsules and prepare coffee shop quality drinks in a fun and exciting way. Why not impress your guests with perfect and authentic espresso or americano, cappuccinos, caffe lattes, machiato, hot chocolate...the list goes on and all at the touch of the manual flow lever! It couldn't be easier! As the experts in bringing quality coffee to homes all over the UK, Delonghi see the Piccolo as the perfect product to suit those with busy lifestyles as it creates no mess and no fuss and it looks great in your kitchen too! " 

I paid £75 for it from Argos and was supposed to wait until Christmas to open it. It lasted five minutes in the box before I opened it up and had a coffee in hand! 

It takes literally 30 seconds to make a coffee and a delicious coffee at that! The best thing I have bought in a long time and would really encourage all Coffee lovers to buy one and try it for themselves! 

When I go into a Coffee shop now I don't enjoy the Coffee's half as much because I know I can make a better one at home and for a fraction of the cost! 

Here is one I made earlier!

I give the machine 9/10.
I would rate it a perfect 10 if Dolce Gusto did more of a range of types of Coffee's.
