Got myself a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine & made myself strawberry coffee!

If you have been following my Instagram account, I’m sure you are aware that I love drinking coffee. Guess I was influenced by my mum who couldn’t stop drinking coffee since she was young.

So recently we got a Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine (Genio 2) and it’s actually quite awesome. Here’s my little review of the machine that puts a smile on my mum’s face (my face also lah actually lolol).

To someone who has been handling gadgets on a day to day basis, this ‘machine’ is actually very easy to use. It only has 3 components. The main body itself, a strainer on the front bottom to trap dripping or overflow coffee & a container at the back that carries water.

The Genio 2 has a 15-bar pump pressure which is strong enough to produce golden crema on coffee, a true sign of coffee shop quality.

In the box along with the machine, we also get a cute package that consist of 6 capsules that we can use to make 4 different types of drinks: Cafe Au Lait, Espresso Intenso, Chococino, and Latte Macchiato.

Apart from the above, we also got 3 other boxes of capsules: Mocha, Latte Macchiato and Grande Intenso. (Grande Intenso is basically Long Black lah)

Did I mention how easy it is to make coffee with this machine?
– Put capsule in
– Adjust amount of water needed
– Push lever to ‘hot water’.
That’s it. All done within a minute.

For coffee with milk, we actually need to use 2 capsules; 1x coffee, 1x milk. In the photo above, I was making a cup of Latte Macchiato.


Since I have this awesome and convenient coffee machine, I actually tried to increase the challenge by making myself a unique glass of coffee.

I bought strawberries, puree jam and grabbed a capsule of Grande Intenso. Then I made STRAWBERRY COFFEE!

Here’s the video of how I made it. You can check out my ingredients and methods. It’s actually very simple.

So in case you are not aware, Nescafe Dolce Gusto is having a promotion in the month of May whereby you will get 30% discount for Genio machines when you purchase any 3 boxes of flavour capsules from the webshop.
