Nescafe Dolce Gusto: Toast of the Town

Morning is as normal as can be with our usual coffee fix from Nescafe.   Every time we buy our weekly groceries, 3 in 1 coffee sachets in packs are always on  top of our list.   This morning however seems beyond my habitual morning fare.   I guess if your one of my follower or somehow may have read some particular reviews on coffee shops and you know, out of this world coffee experiences, you may have an idea what I may be sounding out.   

Well I was at the Museum Cafe this morning, not to enjoy the cafe yet (which I did, somehow) but to get wind on what's this Dolce Gusto, a new product line from Nestle,  which was said to be launched.   

So let me give you a run down on the launch that was, said to be the latest and hottest buzz in Manila with the most stylish addition to the home or office that debuted at a recent launch where  Manila’s trendiest fashionistas and up-to-date techies converged to witness the arrival and introduction of the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto line of single-serve coffee machines and exclusive coffee capsules here in the country.
NESCAFÉ, reinvented coffee-making and everyone, coffee-enthusiasts or not, can finally experience ...
Innovation, style, speed and convenience were the buzzwords of the impressed attendees upon experiencing these stand-alone, space-saving powerhouse machines that boast an easy-to-use system in which you simply POP in a capsule, LOCK in the lever and launch to hot mode, wait for your coffee to DROP in seconds —that’s how easy it will be to make a cup of coffee right in your own kitchen (office, clinic, dorm room, etc.).

In seconds, and in the comfort of your personal space, you can have the luxury and ease of enjoying espresso-based coffee concoctions that you would normally get in coffee shops. There’s no mess, no fuss. SERIOUSLY GOOD COFFEE!
The capsules are sealed airtight for maximum freshness and contain only the highest quality ingredients like roast and ground 100 percent Arabica coffee, whole milk and, yes, even rich chocolate!

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee machines come in cute and stylish designs that will add flair to any kitchen counter and will surely catch the eye of any visiting friend or loved one.  It will make all the difference in making your space feel like an ultramodern art gallery instead of an ancient, stuffy museum’s stockroom for discarded machine pieces.
In red and white designs, the Piccolo has swanky curved lines and a two-toned shell with an extendable spout that adjusts for different cup heights. 
The Circolo model gives off a sleek and sexy vibe with its metal texture and spherical silhouette that comes in antrhracite and cool grey.

As any coffee enthusiast knows, strong pressure is the key in extracting the full flavor and aroma of coffee. It’s also needed to create the foamy froth and rich crèma that add dimensions of flavor to any concoction.
Within their compact space-saving size, these powerful state-of-the-art devices boast cutting-edge 15-bar pressure unlike other coffee machines that offer only 1 to3 bars of pressure. 

Owners of the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto line can have the convenience of choosing from a variety of flavors. They can go for Caffé Lungo, a long smooth cup of intense of coffee, for a boost of energy. There’s Capuccino, a little kick with lots of froth. The day dragging out with speed bumps along the way? Life’s too short to dwell on problems; laugh it off with a cup of Mocha, rich coffee with a delightful chocolate twist.   Engage challenges head-on with verve and style with a cup of Vanilla Latte Macchiato, deliciously stylish coffee with a hint of vanilla, because a twist to the way you normally deal with life can always add a world of difference. There’s also the ultimate reward in a cup of Chococino®, devilishly creamy hot chocolate. It’s like winding down in a cozy bedroom while listening to snazzy ska music.
Just some of the variants launched yet, according to them a lot more
 coffee indulgent flavors will be coming out

Where to get it
With the holidays just around the corner, the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto will make wonderful gifts.  They are available in SM Supermarkets and Hypermarts (Makati, Mall of Asia, Megamall A&B, Pasig Tiendesitas and The Block in North Edsa); and soon also available in other leading supermarkets in Metro Manila.

There is no need to be in the dark; it's time for you to rediscover coffee. Visit and like it on Facebook by visiting NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Philippines.
During the event, Museum Cafe provided us with these grubs made more exceptional  with cups of one of my favorite NDG variant, Chococino, a rich velvety hot chocolate made with the finest cocoa beans with a delicate layer of whole milk.

Caffe Lungo, full bodied coffee with a nice crema layer, which gives  out a fruity and roasty aroma.   Coffee 101, lungo is an italian word for long, so it is defined to be "stretched espresso."

Cappuccino,  shot of rich espresso topped with deliciously frothy sweet milk.  The capsules which carry the milk and the ground coffee, is perfect concoction already.  you don't need to add sugar, for it is carefully sweetened.   What so versatile with this style is that you can vary the strength of the coffee or the milk in the manner of setting the lever for making your cappuccino.

Mocha, merges the smooth dark taste of coffee with the rich flavor of chocolate.

And the last flavor for now is the Vanilla Latte Macchiato.   It was the first cup of coffee that I was able to try from the event, and may I say that it was extremely addicting and seeing how easy it was prepared, no fuss, no mess, all wonderful cup of dandy coffee.  BTW,  It was the picture on top of this post.

Managers from the Sales and Marketing hosted the events and ushered in giving out raffle prizes from the attendees.   

Now I can't wait to have my own Piccolo and enjoy rediscovering coffee in every variants of NESCAFE  Dolce Gusto.  It's like having your stylish and famous franchised coffee in the comfort of my own home.
