Don't leave the house for your coffee... #MC sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a thank me for my participation.

Do you have a favorite specialty coffee? If you do, you have to read on (if you don't.... read on to find out how you can find your favorite)!

I was given the chance to check out the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, and it has been LOVELY to have delicious specialty coffees made right in my own home!

Yes, Chococino....delicious yummy exquisite hot chocolate...!

Okay, what is the big deal about the Dolce Gusto?  What's different about it compared to other single cup brewers?

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is the only machine that truly delivers delicious, coffee house quality creations every time with patented smart capsule technology delivering up to 15 bars of professional pressure and espresso technology.

Professional pressure and espresso technology. Um, yeah...that can kinda make my day!

The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto has been so much fun to have in the house. Imagine this: It's book club day, the gals are coming over to chat about the newest developments in the current literary adventure you are all experiencing and you can surprise them with a coffee-shop like experience with their favorite coffee! And, it's totally customizable for each cup.

The line brews over 17 different hot and cold beverages – with true crema and expertly layered specialty beverages with an indulgent fine milk froth – in under a minute.

It's seriously quick. Take a look and watch as I switch out the capsule while the Dolce Gusto does some amazing work:

The super easy scroll wheel allows you to really customize your flavor. This is nice, because you can make a strong bold flavor, or a more mild delicate flavor depending on your preference. Most of the coffees you make take two capsules, and it's a quick switch in between. The water (which you put in cold) heats up extraordinarily fast- the green light lets you know when it's ready and you just push the button( my favorite feature)!

Okay, since you all know I love the Chococino, I'll share my favorite way to have it.  I prefer two tan capsules and one white to make about 10 oz., then I top with marshmallows and dark chocolate syrup. If I'm feeling especially festive I add in a peppermint candy cane for a stir or two!

How about you gift yourself a little something? Right now you can get 20% off your order when you use the code GustoGift! then you can have delicious specialty coffees in your pajamas! Perfect for that chilly winter morning.

The Dolce Gusto also makes cold beverages, although I haven't tried them yet. I am a fan of iced coffees and teas, but being that it is full force Winter here in northern Michigan, I'll stick to the warm beverages for now! There are two downfalls to the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto for me. One, I couldn't find the capsules in stores near me. I am sure as the Dolce Gusto gets more popular it will be easier to fine, though. Two, the machine is rather loud- you can definitely tell it's working. This wasn't a deal-breaker, of course, but it meant no early morning coffees for me because of sleeping babies.

What do you think you'd like best about the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto?
