The new NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee system redefines house blend, offering aficionados the luxury and ease of brewing a rich variety of delicious, coffeehouse-quality coffees from the convenience of home. Recognizing that coffee cravings can change from day to day and from person to person, NESCAFÉ, the world’s largest coffee brand, has teamed up with Krups, the world leader in pressure coffeemakers, to serve up a unique 15-bar pressure coffee system which makes 7 different premium coffee flavors and a rich hot chocolate – customized to individual taste. Made from strictly 100% high quality Arabica beans, those are Caffè Lungo – dark roast, mild and decaf, Cappuccino, Espresso, Iced Cappuccino, and Latte Macchiato. A velvety hot chocolate drink, the Chococino, is also available. Connoisseurs will savor the challenge of picking a favorite, deciding between a frothy Cappuccino, a full-bodied Espresso or a multi layered Latte Macchiato. To their delight, morning or night, enthusiasts can indulge in whichever variety they fancy at the moment, each cup made to perfection following their own personal preferences. Simply put, you have Starbucks right at home or office.
While all other single-cup coffee systems offer 0 to 2 bars of pressure, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto sets a new standard by featuring a 15-bar pressure system, equal to or above coffeehouse machine standards. The patented technology optimizes the extraction pressure for each variety, consistently delivering the best quality and texture every time. More pressure means consumers gain more control over brewing a frothy cappuccino, velvety latte, or dependable cup of black coffee exactly to their distinct tastes and preferences.
Using NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee system is easy. Simply pop the airtight capsule of choice into the uniquely styled machine, place a favorite glass or mug onto the adjustable tray and then slide the Custom Control Lever to fill to the desired coffee strength. Pop in a second milk capsule to produce frothy foam on Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato, Iced Cappuccino, or Chococino. In less than a minute, coffee enthusiasts will enjoy the delicious aroma and gourmet taste of a freshly brewed cup. The special design of the coffee capsules keeps the coffee fresh for one year.
