NESCAFÉ is the #1 coffee brand in the world, owned by Nestlé.
NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® is a professional-grade pressure-based coffee and espresso machine. We use a patented smart capsule system that produces high-quality coffee, espresso and coffee house specialty drinks.
Before enjoying your first cup of NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® coffee, it is important to properly set up your machine by following 6 simple steps. *Reminder- within the Esperta and Genio box there is a step-by-step instruction sheet.
Remove the water tank and fill with drinking water to the maximum fill level. Then, place it snuggly back into the machine.
Raise locking handle. Make sure the rinsing tool is in the capsule holder and the capsule holder is in the machine. Lower locking handle to close tightly.
Attach the drip tray to support your cup or glass (14oz or larger)
Press the power button once, then wait for the blinking red light to turn green.
Set BARS to maximum level with either the scroll wheel (Esperta) or the joystick (Genio)
Rinse the machine - The loud sound you will hear is normal.
Press the cold water button, or if using the Genio, flip the joystick to the cold side. Wait until the countdown is finished and the machine stops. Then press the hot water button, or if using the Genio, flip the joystick to the hot side. Again, wait until the countdown is finished and the machine stops. **Note, you may have to do this a few times.

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® a new standard of excellence
The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® machine and pod system allows for a broad range of both hot and cold coffees, espressos and specialty beverages to be prepared, offering you greater choice and convenience than other existing machines. We are one of the only machines that can give you frothy milk quickly, from a pod with minimal clean up or rinse cycle required.
NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® Quality and Performance
Smart Capsule technology is what makes NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto completely different from other machines. Other single serve coffee machines only run hot water through the coffee grounds in a pod. Our patented smart capsule keeps freshness locked-in, and optimizes the pressure for every drink, every time. With our scroll bar feature, you have the ultimate control in varying the strength and size of your coffee.
Our quality sourced beans are creatively blended and roasted by our expert coffee creators, sealed for freshness in our patented Smart capsules, and delivered to your cup in one minute or less.
There are many single-serve coffee makers out there, but NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® is truly unique. The award-winning NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® is a single serve, coffee and espresso machine with a professional-grade pressure-based system that extracts the ideal flavor, aroma and body from the coffee to create superior tasting coffee and coffeehouse beverages.
We are the only machine that can give you frothy milk quickly, from a pod with minimal clean up or rinse cycle required. We are also the only coffee and espresso machine that can brew both hot and cold.
The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® machine uses a professional grade, 15 bar pressure system to extract the ideal flavor, aroma, and body to create a richer, bolder cup. The technology built into the machine is just like what the professionals use in coffee houses. Most single serve coffee machines use 1 to 2 bars of pressure, simply running hot water through grounds.
The smart capsules automatically calibrate the correct amount of pressure for each individual drink – less pressure for frothy milk, varying pressure for coffee varieties and higher pressure for full-bodied espresso. Our smart capsule also keeps your coffee fresh until the minute you brew.
Fifteen bars of pressure refers to the barometric pressure that builds up inside every smart capsule. For example, 15 bars is like being 500 feet underwater! This pressure is comparable to professional coffeehouse machines and significantly greater than most single-serve coffee machines on the market.
It is because of this pressure that you will notice a fine golden crema on each of our espresso and coffee drinks and the velvety frothy milk that accompanies all of our specialty drinks.
Our patented smart capsule keeps freshness locked-in, and optimizes the pressure for every drink, every time. Here’s how it works:
When a pod is inserted, a needle punches through the pod seal. Water enters the pod and pressure begins to build, pushing the water evenly through the coffee.
As the pressure builds to its optimum level to maximize flavor, the seal at the bottom of the pod is broken and the coffee begins to flow into the cup.
In this particular case, plastic was the most appropriate material for producing the pods. The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® pod most effectively protects the coffee while in transit from production to consumption. It ensures that the product reaches you while still at top taste quality, which is maintained for a period of one year. It also has tamper-safe features as well as providing optimum convenience while ensuring that you enjoy the best-quality coffee from your NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto® machine.
Nestlé uses all types of materials for different purposes. In this particular case, plastic was the most appropriate material for producing the pods.
