De’Longhi Dolce Gusto Colors Coffee Machine Starter Kit : Fantastic choice of coffees

Instructions a bit hard to follow as they were in cartoon form. However, once we found out how to use we are delighted with the machine.

Bought as a present for my son and he loves it. Easy to use plus little extra bits as to changing the colours of the machine.

No more overflowing cups as it can be set to cup size and switches off automatically. The extra large tank means i don’t have to fill it up each time i use it. Great looks, easy operation and sturdy.

Makes great coffee, and warm coffee.

We have tried various capsule coffee systems over the last few years and have found that nestle dolce gusto suited us best for choice and easy availably of the capsules. We have used a krups manual model machine for the last couple of years and it worked well, made good coffee but needed careful monitoring to obtain the correct strength of coffee. De’longhi has been one of the main hardware manufactures for the dolce gusto system since it was launched around ten years ago and it is a brand we have previously purchased for traditional ground-coffee machines. This new de’longhi dolce gusto colors machine takes the guesswork and effort out of using the system and you simply need to set the machine to match the grade on the lid of the capsule – you can vary the strength of your individual drink by selecting a different setting either higher or lower. This model is intuitive to use and the user manual guides you through setup and use in a graphic sequence – there is a small funnel-like device which is only used during the initial cleaning session then during subsequent descalings – keep it safe as it is not immediately apparent from the illustrations what it’s purpose is. This model is named “ colors” as it is supplied with a selection of interchangeable coloured back panels – a bit of a novelty really but may match your bright modern kitchen décor. Dolce gusto machines vary in price from around forty pounds right up to a couple of hundred so this new model from de’longhi is somewhere in the middle. It is an easy model to use and i like the style and design; at around one hundred and ten pounds currently from amazon it represents decent value for the features offered. I have my dolce gusto cafe lungo capsules on subscribe & save from amazon so i never run out, and amazon also have many other varies available to vary your selection. This de’longhi dolce gusto colors machine is a good introduction this capsule system or it would make a good upgrade from a manual machine – recommended.

Minor problems with the pod carrier which nescafé required the machine back for investigation of recurring problem and replacement with a different model.

My previous machine was nice but could only use my latte glasses this has alot more room for most sized cups very nice flavour good machine easy to use.

Had this brand of coffee at work and prefer it to tassimo as they must have changed the recipe as i no longer enjoy them so bought this one.

Very nice machine, easy to use & clean. The only down side is occasionally the pods burst spraying the coffee over the machine.

Had a dolce, switched to tassimo but so happy to return to dolce gusto. Only issue would be the tank should be bigger and easier to remove.

I love my new dolce gusto machine.

All good great coffee and good machine.

I bought this coffee machine around four months ago and it is truly a life changer. If you buy drink coffee from cafes, this machine will pay for itself in a matter of months, and with the broad range of (mostly) delicious drinks, you cannot go wrong. The pods might seem a bit expensive at first glance but at around 40p/drink, they aren’t expensive in comparison to coffee shops. The machine itself looks great and the adjustable colour panels at the back are an excellent addition to add a pop of colour to your kitchen or match with other kitchen appliances. There are a few drawbacks that are worth considering before purchasing:1 – it is loud. Tremendously loud, and vibrates excessively. It wakes up the entire house when used early in the morning. 2 – if it’s being used regularly, it needs to be descaled often which adds significant costs if using the descaler from the recommended descaler. 3 – occasionally (this has only happened twice out of hundreds of uses so far), the drink just sort of leaks from the nozzle down the front of the machine, creating a mess – as pointed out by other reviewers. 4 – pretend the starter kit does not come with a travel mug.

Pros: very good value for money. The capacity gauge is also very easy to adjust and has an xl option for a larger coffee. The unit is fairly compact but not as small as some earlier models. You can now buy a range of different branded coffees that are compatible with dolce gusto machines. Cons: the water tank is akwardly designed so it needs to be angled when filling. The separate pod holder isa little heavy and a bit fiddly. It also collects water which can drip if you want to make coffees in quick succession.

Had a similar one died after 13 months. Small heater and pump are vulnerable if not descaled. Especially with the cafe au lait inteseo pod.

It’s great love how easy it is to get great coffee. And the only gripe i have is that the water tank is too small. But it’s well worth the money.

Works very well and the coffee is excellent.

Bought for boyfriends birthday he loves it. Only thing is the amount of coffee you get is not quite enough considering the capsule prices. Great machine though and does tea also as i’m not keen on coffee.

Great little coffee machine, replaced my older dolce gusto puccini one. No problems with it at all, very easy to use & seems well built.

Though i don’t know if its the cartridges or the machine but they don’t always pierce.

This second nescafé dolce gusto machine. Now i have got this one and thought it was great as it’s automatic. This new machine just is not right water tank not easy to fill and after using the coffee doesn’t even taste as good. The automatic is the only thing that’s good. Can not get a nice tasting coffee out of it.

Love this machine , first time i ordered a damaged box item , it was so reasonably priced , it was a box in a box so no damage to the coffee machine box , would definitely look in ordering a damaged box items.

A great introduction to coffee machines. The coffee pods have a great flavour and it is easy to find the pods in the supermarket as well as here on amazon. The water reservoir holds enough for a few cups of coffee but just through sheer laziness on my behalf it could have been bigger. As part of the set i ordered there was a pod storage rack which is fantastic and makes it easy to select the pods i need.

Great item i’ve got rid of my kettle now as makes tea too.

Very good value for money everything in perfect working order even though the delivery driver threw it on my step.

I have had one of these coffee machines for some time. I have recently moved house and i changed my kitchen colour scheme. Saw this one which is perfect in my new kitchen. Very pleased as its slightly different from the old one.
