NESCAFE Golce Gusto Genio 2 Overview

Choosing the best single cup iced coffee maker is challenging because a lot of the best models that fit in this category really are cold brew coffee makers. You know, that lengthy process of letting coffee steep at room temperature for 12-24 hours?

Face it — it’s hard to get rich iced coffee on demand.

NESCAFE has a good product for iced beverages because of their concentrated brew technology, so they’ll continue to pepper our iced beverage-related lists.

Pros

  • 7 different brew sizes up to 12 oz
  • 15 bars of pressure
  • Energy saving mode with 5 minute Auto-Off
  • Very compact and more affordable than the larger Esperta 2

Cons

  • Meager 21 oz water reservoir is a pain to remove
  • Not a ton of settings and features
  • Compatible with NESCAFE pods only

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.
