Nescafé Dolce Gusto Krups Lumio Automatic Coffee Machine : The machine itself is robust and of a very good quality. The material quality is excellent and the

Love this, disappointed by having to take out the part that you put the pod in, which means twice with some coffees that have milk.

Very pleased with this machine. Now discovering the various pods available.

This is a new upgrade for my previous manual model.

Not as good as the expensive ones but is adequate for now.

Bought this as a gift and they were really pleased with it.

Reviewed by my coffee-connoisseur neighbour:this is the first automatic coffee machine i’ve used, and i have been very pleased with it so far. You need to remove the water tank to fill it, but it holds enough for several cups, so you don’t need to do that every time. After that, you just pop a coffee pod into the holder, use a roller button to scroll through how much water you want in your coffee and then flick a switch to start the machine. It heats up quickly and there’s a light that counts down while your cup is filling up. I drink black coffee and have found the temperature produced to be just right. However, friends who take milk in their coffee say it’s not quite hot enough, but i get around this by adding less water from the machine and topping up with a splash of boiling water from the kettle. The machine is small enough to tuck away into a cupboard if you’re not using it every day and need to free up space on your kitchen worktop. I’ve found the long power cord really useful and love the colour.

Being a big coffee fan, i was excited to test the nescafe dolce gusto machine. Having owned a similar machine by another brand previously,this had a lot to live up to. Whilst reading this review please keep in mind that i have bad arthritis and a little deformity in my hands, but despite this and being in a wheel chair i manged to operate the machine without difficultyout of the box, packaging was minimal, and there was very little to do to setup the machine. The bowl that holds the water comes off easilyand is shaped well at the top to grip when lifting. It is easy to reattach and holds around a litre of water, giving you enough to makea few cups before refilling. If i had to make one complaint, the hole to pour water through is a little small, it’s easy to spill whilst pouringinto it. You need to purchase the pods for the machine separately, they are around £4 per box of 8 or 16, and are available in most supermarketsnear me. I tried nearly every variety of coffee as well as the hot chocolate. Making a drink is very simple. You insert a pod into the holder, slide that into the machine, select the appropriate amount of water and turn themachine on.

Bought for my son for xmas and he loves it.

  • Excellent. Glad I went for this over Tassimo.

Good quality coffee every time.

I did not realise just how simple it is to make coffee shop quality beverages in the comfort of your own home until i was sent the lumio for testing. The sleek design and finish of neat coffee machine is very pleasing to the eye and the touch. Made of smooth plastic, the one sent to me is black, but it also comes in a white or a red finish. It takes up little room on the worktop with a base measurement of roughly 6 x 8 inches and will slot under most shelving units as it is just over 1 foot in height. It stands very stable on 4 plastic feet and is quite quiet during operation which varies in length depending on the beverage being produced. And it can make some 40 different varieties. It ships well packaged and comes with a quick start visual guide which is reasonable straightforward. After you have completed the required, but quite basic, set up process, you can have a go at making your favourite drink. All you need are some water and the necessary capsules. My wife and i both love cappuccinos and the lumio produces the best we have tasted so far with perfect results each time.

 hi >>my machine is new and it dose not come down water. I want helpmy email : geenan_3[email protected]

Really good and the second dolce gusto i’ve had. Separate capsule unit (so can be cleaned and repaired)set amount of water (old you had to either measure output or guess) so you make a perfect as the supplier created it. I always add a bar to the amount as its less that you’d want normallyauto stop/start (put in pod, set amount of water, knock the feed bar and go) the machine will now heat up, pour and knock off when done. The old you had to turn on/offauto stop/continue on no water (if water runs out half way through creating brew, it will stop) simple refill, knock feed bar back on and it will continue where it left off remembering his much it had fed and still needs.

We love this littlem machine, find it makes a good cup of coffee very quicklythank you.

I imagine whichever company makes these machines, the interior gubbins must be more or less identical, in order to work with the proprietary pods, so it really comes down to price, which given the odd discount seems to be similiar across the board, and aesthetics,, which would explain some the quite radical designs you sees, such as this one, which is a very cool double sphere shape. Perhaps inspired by a small robot carrying a goldfish bowl around on it’s back. In terms of the drinks myself, i’ve never been that keen, finding most of them a little too sweet and bland in the current high-street coffee chain fashion, but my wife’s a big fan, and the reaon we obtained this one is it takes the new size pods for bigger drinks,to summarise, it looks great but performs exactly the same function as other machines.

This machine is very stylish and easy to assemble.

The best coffee machine so far. Water autostop by pod size is a great feature.

Nescafé Dolce Gusto Krups Lumio Automatic Coffee Machine

Doesn’t take much worksuface. An ok size water capacity (same as the rest of them really). It’s handy that it’s automatic in the sense that you can select how much and the machine will do the rest. Didn’t see the point in spending double the amount on other dolce gusto machines when this did exactly the same thing.

I have been a long term tassimo user for the past few years, so was quite excited when the chance to review the main competitor arose. I must say, i have been pleasantly surprised. Set up is very easy, and the pre-use instructions were comprehensive for preparing and flushing out the unit before first use. Inserting the coffee pods is simple, as is adding water to the container mounted on the rear. After 10 minutes, the machine was good to go. First impressions were that all the controls were intuitive and easy to use. The retail boxes for drink pods tell you all the settings required to correctly make the drink. The tassimo system does this automatically by using barcodes, but i can’t say completing this task manually was too taxing for it to be considered an issue. I purchased the official americano pods made by nescafe, and the portion size was good, providing you add milk to your coffee. My only complaint is that all drinks are made quite cool.

Easy to use bonus it looks like a penguin 🐧.

Having happily owned the popular rival brand of pod fed coffee machine for four years, the dolce gusto has a lot to live up tothe machine is attractive, modern and has character. It comes set up and just needs plugging in. The quick start instructions are clear and simple. There are plenty youtube videos to help, if unsure. The instructions take you through the cleaning and familiarisation process. You do need to have a box of coffee pods ready. I bought and tested cappuccino (skinny), macchiato (skinny), chai tea latte and preludio. The boxes of pods are around £4 each. Milky drinks provide 8 servings. The preludio is plain coffee and there are 16 xl servings.

After weighing up all the confusing pod machine options, i’m glad i settled for this. It’s cute and very easy to use. I expect a nespresso tastes more professional, but for the difference in price, this one is perfectly adequate.

It says in the product descriptionwith the lumio machine, your drink is ready in 3 simple steps:1. Use the recommendation on the pod or select the volume you desire by touching the volume selector3. Move the lever to hot or coldfrom what i can see it is more like. Check the water level, if low, remove tank and try and fill it to the level mark through the small hole which is sort of on top, refit it. Remove pod tray, this will start the machine warming up drawing just under 1400 watts3. Open pod container, put in the cartridge and memorise from the label on the pod the setting needed for this pod (reading glasses may be required to count the bars)4. Close pod tray, refit, lower front cover. Now check the led bar graph bars match the value memorised for the cartridge you have loaded. Change, if required by rotating the thumb control on machine top. Position cup, push lever to right for hot (left for cold drinks) and your drink will be produced.

Great value item, easy to use.

Very good machine, easy to use.

The coffee machine looks modern and fits in well in the kitchen. The instructions don’t provide any wording so might be difficult to understand for some, but if you’ve used a pod based coffee machine before then there’s no real difference and it’s easy to use. It works well and produces a really nice cup of coffee. There are no pods supplied with the machine, and they are not cheap to buy. It took only a couple of seconds for the coffee to start coming out, and in less than a minute the cup was full. All round this is a great little unit if you’re in need of a cup of coffee quickly.

This is so easy to use and great to have in an office. I look forward to coming in every morning. The cappuccino (two pods required) is as good as the costa one i usually buy and a mid-afternoon espresso gets the blood pumping. The only problem is using it too much and we’re all getting coffee overload. Maybe we’ll calm down over the weeks but right now it’s our favourite toy.

This is a smart-looking machine which doesn’t take up much space and makes cracking cups of coffee (plus tea and hot chocolate if you wish). Unpackaging and set-up is simple enough, in fact so simple that the instructions are only in picture form. Having never used such a machine before initially it took a little figuring out but once i’d made one drink it was very easy. The dolce gusto pod of your choice is placed in a removable tray at the top, water is placed in the clear tank on the back, you then put a cup on the plate and set the machine to the size of drink you would like. Pull the lever across on top and the lumio machine does the rest. There is virtually no mess and it’s easy to clean when required. The drink pods are obviously more expensive than buying instant coffee, but you are getting a far superior drink for the money and will have saved some up front by purchasing the lumio, which at £60 currently is good value. The design is appealing and both the footprint and height are compact, so it’ll fit into your kitchen without being too obtrusive. The machine is well made and seems to be plenty sturdy enough. Definitely worth looking at if you’re considering purchasing a pod-based coffee machine.

Had a different model before but this one is so much better.

Bought for my wife ( which she asked for) at christmas. Cannot comment on durability as it is too soon, however all other aspects are great. Would definitely recommend this product.

Quick and easy way to fulfil my espresso addiction. Descaling can be a bit of a pain, but day to day it’s very easy use and makes an espresso comparable to any of the expensive high street coffee shops.

I got this machine to upgrade from my basic one as i wanted the auto function to make the drinks perfectly and its so much quicker and hotter the free gifts are a nice touch the machine is easy to use and clean. Looks stylish and goes well in a kitchen full off gadgets. Ny number one tip is to buy your pods in bulk on hear to get them much cheaper.

The only fault we can see is that it is difficult to empty the water from the tank, there is always a bit of water left over.

When this coffee machine arrived i could not get it to work properly at all. Despite my best efforts and multiple you tube viewings i could only manage a luke warm cup of coffee. Eventually the machine stopped working entirely. However after a quick chat with the amazon tech team, a replacement was sent. Arrived within 2 days and works like a dream. I prefer decaf coffee and i have to say the quality is excellent. I’ve just ordered the hot chocolate and can’t wait to try it.

Great coffee and good price.
