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

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.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
