What pods can I use with my Dolce Gusto?

I am looking to buy a Nescafe Dolce Gusto, but I wanted to know if I have to use their pods or if I can buy cheaper ones.

Also wondering if it might just be cheaper to buy a real espresso machine as I will be drinking the espresso drinks daily, and I only get 8 drinks out of 1 box

  • I think you can only use the Nescafe pods, so it does get quite expensive. If you’re going to use it mainly for espresso, I’d recommend a Bialetti stove stop espresso maker – its a bit more fiddly than the Dolce Gusto, but it makes better coffee, and your not limited to a single type of espresso as you are with the pods. I also found that some of the pod drinks (especially the ones with powdered milk) tasted a bit artificial.

  • I’ve got a Dolce Gusto and I’ve had it for about 4 years now, so believe me I’ve tried to find cheaper pods, all to no avail. Basically you pay for the convenience; in my view I think it’s worth it. However, I only drink the Americano – I get 16 pods for around £3.50, it’s the same for Espresso they also come in 16’s – it’s only the milky versions that come in 8 servings, they still have 16 pods but 8 are coffee and 8 are milk.

    I don’t know about specific espresso machines, but I am totally allergic to those stove top Mokas. We had a collection of about 8 of those things cluttering the kitchen when I was a kid, they were forever on the go on top of the cooker – scary steam things always burning people and toppling over!

    I prefer the simple (lazy) life. 60 seconds for decent coffee – that suits me fine.

  • Only dolce Gusto capsules can be used no compatible capsules

  • Personally I think that both the Dolce Gusto and the Tassimo are a bit rubbish after sampling drinks made from them in two separate supermarket car-park promotional trailers. If it were me, I would go for a good quality 15 bar Espresso machine like a De’Longhi, or if you want real quality that comes at a price, then go for a Gaggia.

  • ebay all the way i get 100 pods for £13 xxx

  • It is just another Nestle way to take your hard earned cash!
