Dolce Gusto Chat


#1

Not one for the aeropress show offs this. Anyone use one? It’s quick and easy and cheapish and better than instant. However pods are £4.50 in mozzas now. Are there any cheaper compatible options? I see other brands nespresso compatible ones all the time but don’t think I’ve ever seen them for dolce gusto.

More like… Dolce Expensivo, amirite?


#3

I know you mean well mate. But this kind of reply can sink a thread like this. Let’s think before we post yeah?


#4

I’d say @Epimer 's reply was more… Dolce Guff-to!


#5

Just google compatable pods

Or buy in bulk on ebay if you want the real ones


#6

If you buy from Dolce Gusto site they are a bit cheaper…Often get something for free and all.

I like the choccocino chocolate from it.

Ah yes, my absolute favourite performance was probably Placido Domingo at the Royal Opera House, 1995

Usually around the £4 mark or less in Sainbos.

I have a Nespresso machine (I know, I know) and lots of places to compatible pods but they’re not as good as the official ones. Think you just have to suck it up tbh.


#11

how many ‘pods’ are you getting for your 4.50?


#12

Got one. Do like the cappucino has to be said.

Stopped using it when finding out how bad pod coffee is for the environment, have to say.


#13

Always used to get the pods in ASDA - used to get 3 boxes for £10 (£3.99 each normally) but not sure if they do that anymore.


#14

is there no recycling for Dolce Gusto pods?


#15

I’m not sure. Just assumed it was the same as Nespresso and bailed out of the whole thing.

In the US, EVERYONE has a Keurig machine. They’re ace, much better than Nespresso bullshit. They don’t have kettles though. Swings and roundabouts.


#18

Actually just remembered my old man drives to BM Bargains to get his.

So yeah - drive to BM Bargains.


#19

isn’t their typical coffee all just weird watery soil though like in dunkin donuts?


#20

Decent drip coffee > Shitty espresso though.
