Coffee connoisseurs have never had it so good. Thanks to innovation in coffee machine technology, it is now possible to turn your kitchen into a first-class espresso bar.

The latest bean-to-cup coffee machines guarantee superior espressos, lattes, and cappuccinos every single time and allow you to- precisely customize your cuppa by selecting from multiple settings. Pod machines are just as impressive when it comes to delivering convenience without compromising quality. Just pop in a capsule- and you’ll have a custom brewed cup of perfect coffee in no time.  

What is the Dolce Gusto Machine?

Dolce Gusto is a single-serve Coffee, Espresso and Cappuccino maker by Nescafe. The machines are produced by hardware manufacturers Arno from Næver, Krups, and DeLonghi.

 It uses single-serving pods to create- a variety of over 20 delicious coffee beverages from espresso, cappuccino, lattes to hot chocolate.

Dolce Gusto is one of the single-serve beverage makers that use its pod to make popular hot or cold beverages like coffee, cappuccinos, latte, iced coffee, iced tea, and more. With so many designs available. It is therefore certain- to get a coffee machine that fits your kitchen and lifestyle.

How does it work?

Using a dolce gusto machine is adequately simple. Insert a pod, set the intensity level (which is generally instructed on the box but can also be customized), and hit the brew button. A switch on the machine allows you to toggle between hot or cold drink mode. However, you will have to use Dolce Gusto pods that are made especially for cold brewing.

With 15 bars of pressure across the board, the Dolce Gusto machine secures an even distribution of water and pressure- throughout the capsule. In turn, it delivers maximum flavour every time.

Keeping your coffee machine clean is easy- they have removable water tanks, height-adjustable drip trays, and safety stop devices. Easy to clean and easy to use, all we need to do is fill the tank, select a pod, and push the button, and the machine will do the rest.

 Many Dolce Gusto machines take over 40 types of coffee and hot drink pods, meaning you certainly would not be limited with your choice of coffee drinks.

Can other coffees be used in the Dolce Gusto coffee maker?

Refillable pods can be used- with the Dolce Gusto coffee maker to make the drinks. However, these are not official pods and are products of third-party brands. So, the quality of the pods and the coffee is not assured.

Capsule-wise, Dolce Gusto is compatible with its capsules only. So, Nespresso, Keurig K-cups, or any other coffee capsules- cannot be used with it.


Dolce Gusto is a compact coffee maker, but it tends to give more mileage- in the form of other beverages. The prices range from $100-$190 or about THB 3,000-THB 6,000.
