Great little pod machine

Great little pod machine. Easy storage as its perfect in size. Can get heaps of nice coffee pods for it that tastes so delicious. Love the black machine as it goes with my decor.

Purchased in June 2017 for $79.00.

Ok machine but coffee taste not so great

Bought this machine over Christmas, it looks decent and works ok but the coffee quality from the pods is very ordinary. I always find it really watery and not the robust flavour you get from some of the Nespresso or higher end machines. It's an ok buy but I can think of better options.

Does its job

The machine is fine.A little splashy but makes a descent cup of coffee (or hot chocolate, nesquik or tea if you prefer chai latte). Doesn't have many parts to clean, which means it's almost maintenance free. Just be careful not to lose the funnel that comes with it or you'll have a hard time cleaning it up without water splashing all around you.

easy to use

A quick and easy cup of coffee. Always functions without issue. Just wish they would enable us to purchase milk capsules separately for those of us who like a milkier or less strong cup! Purchase experience without any problems and quick delivery. Capsules easy to purchase on line and also quick delivery.

Easy to use

This machine is easy to use and it does produce tasty, rich, creamy consistently good coffee. The only issue is that the pods that you can use for it are limited. Nespresso compatible pods tend to have a lot more variety on offer than the pods you can use for this machine.

Love it

As I'm getting this review I'm enjoying a perfect cup of coffee I have had my machine for a fee years now and love it. I even bought one for my work place. It's simple to use and the variety of flavours are great I would recommend to anyone
It's a must have in any kitchen.

Best Coffee Pod Machine Ever!

Absolutely love our new Dolce Gusto Genio 2. Really easy to use and there's a great range of flavours/tastes. We typically use the cappuccino or macchiato pods. Delicious, quick and easy! The pods are a little expensive at around $1 each however the coffees are as good as barista made coffees anyway!

Quick great coffee.

Very happy with my coffee pod machine! Purchased at target online store! Very easy to use and so quick, lots of flavours to choose from and love that u can make it hot or cold! Cleaning is very easy and not much required, and size of machine is good too not big at all doesn’t take up much kitchen space!

It’s average!

I’ve had a few coffee pod machines and this would be a lower rating machine. The coffee tastes ok, often it has a burnt taste. I don’t like the pods, they’re expensive in comparison and you get less because most flavours has a milk pod as well, this means less coffee per packet compared to other brands.

Awesome Coffee All The Time

Unlike other reviewers, I love the taste of this coffee particularly the Espresso Intenso pods. I do agree that the pods are overpriced though and I have noticed Woolworths is getting a bit slack in making sure that the most popular pods are always in stock on the shelf. Overall though the unit is perfect. Really easy to use and transportable - I take it everywhere with me to make sure I get my coffee hit including hotels and camping! :)

I don't like it

It's easy to use but very expensive . The coffee didn't taste good to me either. I bought cappuccino too which was hard to figure out that you have one cap of milk and the other cap of coffee to put in. I wouldn't buy this machine again. Not happy

Love my coffee machine

I love my coffee machine. Cuts my coffee costs from cafes down from $5 a coffee to $1 a coffee and I believe it tastes much better too! Easy and quick to make your coffee if you are in a rush in the morning. It is simple and easy and I love it. All you need.

Okay but limited coffee machine

My parents purchased this machine during a promotion at BigW where if you buy this machine, the pods come included for around $99. I find this machine does what it says but its quite limited to the type of pods you can use. I like how easy it is to use - just fill with water and pop a pod into the machine. It's easy to control the amount of liquid as there is an indicator on the machine. On the pods there is also an indication of how much water is to be used so there is really no "messing up". I don't really like how big the pods are as it's just wasteful. Nespresso and other brands use a smaller amount of plastic per pod. The taste of the pods are okay, but could be better and can often taste watered down so I would recommend one less "bar" of water than indicated on the pod and use milk to make it more substantial. Other wise you are just drinking powdered water.

Handy AIO Machine for the Cafe crowd

It makes a range of different coffees and other beverages without the need for frothing your milk or pouring the right ratios yourself. Make a cappuccino (or skim cap), a few lattes, hot chocolate, a couple different short and long blacks and even some iced tea with this machine. The pods aren't the cheapest to buy but you have a range of types of coffee to choose from. Cleaning is easy and minimal. Very easy to use and quick to heat up.

It is simple to use instructions, i also like their modern range of looks. It is a quick to use and no mess in using this machine. just put water , capsule and go.

Simple Machine! Really like it!!

I have bought the Dolce Gusto Genio 6 month ago. The machine is really convenient and the coffee is yummy. Easy clean, easy to use. The capsule is affordable and it can be bought from Coles and Woolworth. If you register at their website, you can also get some offers when you order the capsules.

Easy to use

It is great for a fast and yumny coffee. Also, I found it is very easy to clean too. The coffee tastes good enough for us to wake up. Also, the capsule is relatively affordable and they come with a huge variety. I think the price is quite reasonable too.

Just ok Coffee Machine

My mom gifted this coffee machine as a Christmas Present. She knows I like drinking coffee and this coffee machine is very easy to use and closed to having a coffee in restaurants. But buying capsules is quiet expensive and sometimes not a good quality coffee is produced using this. Cheaper compare to others. If anyone is looking for convenience and just fine coffee. Then buy this machine. Otherwise save more money and buy more expensive but high end coffee machine.

Simple coffee maker

This is my second dolce gusto, I wore the first one out! I like the appearance it looks good in my kitchen and makes a good coffee and tea for that matter. Easy clean , easy to operate. Has a low power usage and the convenience of the capsule means no mess.

Makes a nice coffe

This machine is very easy to use and the coffee is really nice. The only thing I don’t like is the pods as they can’t be recycled. It would be good if more pod brands would fit the machine. We tend to use our mocha more often now to save on the price and use of the pods.

Questions & Answers

Do you have to pull a lever for the water to come out and then wait until the cup is how you want it and then push it back? Or is it automatic and you can press a button for the amount of water you want and it stops automatically?
1 answer
You push a button for a long or short black or coffee with milk.

Can milk be used in the water tank?
1 answer
No, the water tank is for water only. If you want to heat milk separately then this isn't the machine for you.

Out water holder started to leak how can I replace that?
2 answers
I had a similar problem from a leaking seam at the bottom of the water tank. Fortunately it was still under warranty so I took it back to the retailer (Harvey Norman) where an obliging assistant simply replaced it from a new one in stock. If yours is out of warranty try the DeLongi Nescafe Dulce Gusto Genio website which I have also found very helpful.Thank ypu, i will contact my dealer as well.
