Last Minute Gift Ideas -- Surprise the Coffee/Tea/Cocoa Lover in Your Life w/ the New NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker #Sponsored @DolceGustoUS #MC (Review)

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

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.”

Gone are the days when you can brew a pot of coffee for holiday gatherings or parties.  Because people have grown accustomed to ordering their own unique coffee blends, frozen drinks and flavored hot beverages, it is even harder to please everyone with just one pot of coffee.  Thankfully, with the introduction of single serving cup coffee makers, you can can purchase a variety pack or sampler box of coffee capsules, as well as hot chocolate for the kids, and have on hand when family and friends come to visit.

Last Christmas my husband surprised me with a new coffee maker.  Who knew that one kitchen gadget could come in so handy.  I love being able to brew up a single serving cup of coffee or other flavored hot beverage in about a minute.  Before receiving this new coffee machine as a gift, I so hated waking up in the AM's dragging, only to realize I forget to set the old coffee pot's timer -- so no hot coffee was waiting for me.  And, with little ones, as soon as I got up, so did they, making it impossible to get a pot of coffee on, let alone have time to pour a cup and enjoy (hot!).  But, thanks to the new single serving coffee maker, I was able to make a cup of coffee when I found a free moment, usually when the girls went down for their mid morning naps.  But, like any kitchen gadget or device, this coffee maker had its limitations. For one, it couldn't make cold beverages, like iced coffees or iced teas, which are great during the hot summer months.  And, second, it was clunky and took up a lot of counter space, which is limited in my kitchen.  So, while I was happy to be joining the ranks of so many other families with this particular coffee maker, I longed for yet another one that took up less space and offered the ability to brew up hot and cold beverages in no time at all.  Additional features would be an added bonus!

So began my search for a new coffee machine.  I ended up stumbling across the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Genio online and loved everything about it.  Before I could add it to my wish list for Santa, the folks at Mom Central Consulting and NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto had surprised me with one to try out and share my thoughts on.  Insert happy dance here!!! :-)  In addition to the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, I was also sent a sampler of their single serving coffee and cocoa capsules to try out with the new coffee machine.  I have to tell you, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when I saw the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, and couldn't wait to set it up and try it out.

It has been two weeks since I received the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee maker, and I can't stop raving about it with family and friends.  And, whenever I get the chance, I have been inviting girlfriends over to enjoy a hot cup of coffee or a flavored hot beverage, some the sample of NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto varieties I was sent. Everyone who tries a cup of coffee, hot chocolate,etc. from this coffee maker, loves it.  They say it takes like it was made by a skilled barista in a coffee shop.  The hot beverages are not watered down and the ones that come with a capsule to add froth to the drink, taste out of this world!

While I love coffee, I have to say that my favorite beverage to brew up with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is the Chococino hot chocolate, which also comes with a frothy milk capsule.  Now that the cold weather and snow is here, it is always nice to have a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream, or in this case, rich, creamy frothy milk.  

The girls and I love baking up cookies to have ready for our evening hot chocolate.  This is definitely one way to end a perfect day, and one that has created many memories thus far this season.  This is the first time they were introduced to hot chocolate, and since the first sip, they have been hooked like their mom! :-)  We have two more chocolate lovers in the house!  And, to make our Chococino hot chocolate special, I add 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract to the cup and stir up.  My Nana used to do this for th grandkids and would tell us we were having "adult coffee".  It tasted so good, and I have continued using this secret recipe (well not any more) for my hot chocolates, and now for the girls'.  You will have to try this little trick out, as it really adds a nice flavor to the already rich and creamy hot chocolate. Mmm, I am craving a cup of Chococino hot chocolate right now. :-)

I can't wait until Christmas day and New Year's Eve, when I will be hosting holiday dinners for family and friends at my house.  For those who haven't experienced the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto, they are in for a treat!

If you are looking for a last minute gift idea to surprise a coffee lover in your house, or have been longing to upgrade to a better single serving coffee machine, you will want to check out the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and the different flavored drink capsules available to use with this amazing machine, at an affordable price.  I know that once you try a cup from this coffee machine, you will fall in love with it and wonder how you ever lived without the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto.  And, if you like to host parties or having family and friends over for coffee, the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto will come in handy.

Finally, you will be able to brew up hot and cold beverages for each person's liking, without having to spend a fortune.  And, get ready to say goodbye to that oversized coffee pot you used to pull out of the garage or closet for parties...and, welcome the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto into your home. :-)
