Little but mighty
on January 14, 2012
I bought this for it's size (going in a vacation condo unit) and power because I like espresso and cappuccinos, not regular coffee. The capsules were easily accessible at Walmart for example. It makes good espressos and cappuccinos. If you're a regular coffee drinker I'd get the Tassimo maybe because you have a lot of choices of coffees. The coffee is hot, the portions are smallish.
I went to Walmart recently and they seem to be getting rid of the Dolce Gusto pods which bothers me. They were on clearance so I'm hoping it's just because they were past their expiration date and they'll have new ones coming in! The pods are convenient. I have a semi-automatic Raccilio at home but for vacation time, this little machine is awesome. I used it at Christmas so people just made their own stuff and no one complained except for the house blend which was too mild for regular coffee drinkers. For people who want very good espressos and cappucinos and do not want to be bothered to use or pay for a "real" espresso maker and grinding beans etc, this is a good buy.
