A little while ago my husband and I decide to invest in a Dolce Gusto coffee machine. One of the coffees we tried was the Cappuccino. The pods come in boxes of 16 each - 8 milk pods and 8 cappuccino ones. At £3.75 per box, we thought it as a great bargain. At less than £0.50 per cup of coffee, it's a dream for those who want to enjoy a good quality coffee, while still being gentle on the wallet, since a cappuccino in a coffee shop would set you back at least £2.00 a cup.
Price aside, it was nice to be able to enjoy a cup of it in the morning, without needing to pop to the shops. Each box comes with instructions, so it's easy to make a perfect cup of cappuccino whenever you fancy one.
Ours is not an automatic machine, so once you fill it up with water, you start with the milk pod, and then you add the cappuccino pod to it.
The smell that hits you the moment that coffee starts trickling in the cup is purely amazing. It smells rich, fresh, as if it were freshly grounded coffee in front of you. The cappuccino has a nice froth to it too, making it seem as if a barista made it. The only thing is missing is a little chocolate powder sprinkled on top. It taste great, maybe not as strong as some of the speciality coffee shops, but it doesn't compromise on taste at all.
For those watching the calories, there is also a skinny cappuccino box in the series.
The box can be easily found in larger supermarkets and ordered online, but not so easy to find in smaller shops. My only complaint is that I wish the company made family size boxes, since a box can only make 8 cappuccinos, which, after friends come around (and they always do for a good coffee), it finishes rather quickly.
