Key Features of NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Esperta 2

NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Esperta 2 Overview

A luxury brewer that does more than push water into a pod and squirt out coffee water, the NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Esperta 2 is as impressive as its name is long.

It brews 30 different types of both hot and cold coffee beverages, ranging from basic coffee and espresso to cappuccinos, lattes, and iced beverages.

However, you’ll have to buy NESCAFE brand pods, which are about the same price as Keurig K-Cups.

Pros

  • Handy 60 oz water reservoir
  • 15 bars of pressure
  • 8 brew sizes up to 12 oz
  • Energy saving mode with 5 minute Auto-Off

Cons

  • Not a ton of settings and features
  • Rear removable water reservoir is a bit of a pain
  • Compatible with NESCAFE pods only

NESCAFE Taster's Choice Instant Coffee

NESCAFE Taster's Choice Instant Coffee
Overall Rating: 86
Made from 100% premium and ethically-sourced beans, this coffee has been flash-frozen to preserve all the flavor you’d expect from a freshly brewed cup. As far as instant coffee goes, this blend is on the lighter side.
