NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Piccolo Review

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. I MAY EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES.

When I have a coffee drink at home, I’m not brewing a pot, I was a fun, frothy drink.  And, I’d like it to be fun and easy to make.  Bonus points for the machine being cute, too.  And, with very limited counter space, being small is a bonus, too.

NESCAFE recently introduced their Dolce Gusto individual coffee makers.  I was lucky enough to have the Piccolo at our house to test out.

Piccolo Great taste, little package

I may look small but I pack enough
power to break all the rules. Take me
for a spin, then buckle up for a jolt of
great coffee flavor.

Look how cute it is.  It reminds me of a little penguin, or a little other bird.  It fits very well on our kitchen counter without taking up the entire thing!  This is definitely a perk for us.

Just like the others in the NESCAFE Dolce Gusto line, it features:

  • Professional 15-Bars of Pressure
  • Thermablock Technology
  • Hot and Cold Drinks
  • Energy Saving – Automatic Switch Off
  • Adjustable, Stainless Steel Drip Tray

From their site (and I agree with it all!)

  • No mess, No fuss. Everything you need to make hot or cold drinks are contained in our easy-to-use capsules
  • Ideal for kitchenettes, cubicles, dorm rooms or anywhere else where saving space is important
  • Our technologically advanced machines and precisely designed flavor capsules combine to give the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® a professional-level 15-bar pressure system (similar to coffeehouse machines) which helps to ensure that every cup is perfect with a foamy froth, rich crèma and luxurious flavor
  • The unique patented Custom Control Lever puts you in control to customize your coffee’s strength and mixture (for multi-capsule drinks). It also lets you alternate between hot and cold beverages in an instant
  • The exclusive Thermoblock technology heats the water fresh every time, in less than one minute
  • NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® uses only the highest quality ingredients – featuring only 100% Arabica, rich chocolate and foamy milk
  • Stylish and sleek design that will stand out on any kitchen counter
  • Energy Saving automatic switch off
  • When all is said and done, it is super cute and easy to use.  It’s no-fuss and more importantly, makes a good-looking, yummy, yummy drink!

      The only disadvantage that I can find is the machine’s water reservoir. It only holds 0.6 litres, while the other models hold 1.5 litres, which means the reservoir has to be refilled almost constantly.

      1. I don’t mind refilling it every couple drinks. It lets me know the water is fresh instead of sitting in the reservoir for a couple days.

        If there is one you’d like to send me to try out…I’d be happy to test out another one:)

    2. I bought dolce gusto genio and it was amazing, a really great coffee maker by nestle

      I BOUGHT THE DOLCE GUSTO PICOLO AND HAD TROUBLE WITH IT, PUT IT AWAY IN A BOX AND RECENTLY RETURNED FROM ITALY WITH A DESIRE FOR MORE ESPRESSO AND REMEMBERED I HAD A DOLCE GUSTO. WELL STILL NOT WORKING THE WATER HEATS BUT DONT COME THRU. I TRIED USING THE PIN PER THE VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS ON YOUTUBE, STILL NO WATER NEVERTHELESS NO COFFEE.

      1. I’d check with the company and see if they have any other suggestions for you…even giving them a call. Sometimes that’s the best route. Good luck!
