In this article I talk about a Coffee Nescafé Dolce Gusto Black Mini Me and six boxes of capsules, purchased on the website of the Nescafe Dolce Gusto. I actually did a subscription to receive six boxes of capsules every two months, during a year. And with that I won the Coffee Nescafé Dolce Gusto Black Mini Me with toast.
In mid-January my wife visited a friend who introduced him to Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me and offered a beverage. She liked it and told me he wanted a coffee like that too.
At first I questioned and found a bad idea, Since neither I nor she coffee. We don't have a common coffee maker, or a thermos or anything. But she explained that the coffee maker also makes other drinks, of which she likes, like Cappucino.
I'm not a fan or even drinks that take coffee, so my interest was limited to chocolate and teas.
I talked to several people and they all said to wait for some promotion, because the Nescafe Dolce Gusto always makes deals on commemorative dates, as mother's Day, Christmas, etc. Those deals who buys the coffee maker WINS free capsules.
Now, at the time of writing this article, is going on one of those promotions. Buying a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me by R 299,00, in any store, win R$ 150,00 in cafes, registering the receipt on the Nescafe Dolce Gusto.
But my wife was pretty anxious and didn't want to wait for the promotion. At the time the machine was costing in the range of R$ 299,00, but without any capsule. The best option I found turned out to be the own Nescafe Dolce Gusto. Doing a one-year subscription, with the minimum order of 6 capsules every two months, you get the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me. The cost for the 6 capsules every two months is R$ 133,20, also every two months, with free shipping. And that was the signature that I made.
The first shipment arrived in February, and it received the Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me Black in color, that was my wife's choice. It is also available in white, Red and white, Red and black, and purple and gray.
Along with the coffee maker also came the six capsules that I chose. As I wanted to surprise you, I ended up choosing alone the following drinks:
I took the Espresso Why is the most “Classic”, but he was essentially for visits, because even opened the box yet. I have a sister-in-law who visited us once and spent the whole time complaining that there was no coffee. I can't understand this obligation to serve coffee to visitors, but…
My wife liked all the other five drinks. I just experienced the Mocha, the Cappucino and the Vanilla Latte Macchiato, but the coffee naturally excels at them all, and then I can't like… The Chococino Caramel also I did not like very, the flavor is artificial and it has cinnamon. I don't like cinnamon!
Of the six, What I really enjoyed was the Chococino, with your sharp flavour cocoa. Ain't she sweet, but it's also not very bitter. Is good without sugar. Must be great on cold days, This year haven't arrived yet…
With the exception of Espresso, all the other five drinks ordered use two capsules. Typically a powdered milk and the other with the coffee and/or chocolate and/or other ingredients. Each box has 16 capsules, the yielding 8 drinks or 16 beverages, Depending on how many capsules the drink uses.

A Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me is the simplest of coffee makers of Nescafé Dolce Gusto. There are other more sophisticated than with digital dial, stainless steel tray, space to store used capsules, etc. But these details do not influence the taste of the drink, and to Mini Me do well the service.
To turn it on, She takes a while to get ready for use, because apparently you need to pre-heat the resistance. The tank needs to be pré-abastecido with water. Then just put the capsule, Select the amount of water according to the packaging and pull the lever to left or right, Depending on the drink be cold or hot. Then the machine will activate the pump, pass the water through the capsule and fall ready Cup or Cup underneath. If it is a drink of two capsules, you need to change the capsule and repeat the procedure.
Iced coffee? Not, of course not. Are some teas that can be taken hot or ice cream. In fact the only machine heats up, so in the case of cold drinks she use water at room temperature and adding ice to keep cold.
O plug de energia é de 20A. Fortunately I had already installed a plug in my kitchen at the time of purchase of the Electric fryer Mondial Air Fryer.

The second consignment of capsules came in April, but I will speak of it only in an upcoming article, because I haven't tried most of the drinks. But only to advance, These are the boxes that we choose:
The first two are repeated because it was the most we like (in my case only Chococino). The others are to experience.
I never thought I'd have a coffeemaker, very least you'd like to have a coffee maker. I've changed my mind now that I know Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me. She is very practical and, even though I don't enjoy coffee, at least the Chococino and the Marrakesh Style Tea are good. I'm still going to try the Chocolate milk and the Nestea ® Lemon. My wife was very satisfied and enjoying the coming Mini Me and their drinks.
The price per drink isn't the best, getting in the range of R$ 1,40 by drinking a single capsule and R$ 2,80 in the case of two capsules. It is of course much cheaper to buy ground coffee, can of chocolate milk, chocolate powder priest, tea box or sachêzinho, or whatever, Although it is less practical. On the other hand, comparando com os preços cobrados por essas bebidas nas padarias e cafeterias, is of good size.
Há cápsulas reutilizáveis no mercado, mas elas costumam ser caras. E com elas não daria para fazer exatamente as mesmas bebidas, mas café, leite em pó, chocolate em pó e chás são itens relativamente fáceis de encontrar e em boa variedade. Nesse caso aproveita-se praticamente apenas a pressão que a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker Mini Me proporciona para deixar as bebidas cremosas. De qualquer forma não fui à fundo na questão das cápsulas reutilizáveis. Se você usa, leave a comment.
A questão ambiental também costuma ser bastante mencionada quando se fala em café em cápsulas. A cápsula é reciclável, mas é preciso separar o pó usado (orgânico) do alumínio e do plástico. E fazer isso meio que tira parte da praticidade de usar cápsulas. Mas também não é nada impossível de ser feito.
Por fim, isso aqui não é post patrocinado, então cabe dizer que a Nescafe Dolce Gusto tem concorrentes. Notavelmente a Três Corações, and to Nespresso. But, as cápsulas são incompatíveis, então é preciso escolher muito bem a máquina, pois fica-se preso às bebidas da mesma marca.
