Pros and Cons

Delonghi Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me is an outstanding coffee machine on the market. We have overlooked the most notable features of this single-serve system. Now let’s look closer over its advantages and disadvantages for being purchased.


  • coffee machine price.

Dolce Gusto Mini Me can be regarded as one of the cheapest pod coffee machines. The count begins from $119. Just imagine ― $119 for everyday barista style morning coffee. It’s worth it.

  • automatic system for the brewing.

It’s all about your time. You don’t need to be a professional barista to brew real espresso, cappuccino or any other type of beverage. It’s 45 seconds, and you have perfect coffee in your cup. Automatically, just by pushing the start-button.

  • perfect size for the limited space

Large coffee machines are regarded as the symbol of power and real coffee. But they won’t fit in the short of space room. Dolce Gusto Mini Me will be more useful there cause it’s small and almost noiseless.

  • great range of tastes and flavors

Single-serve coffee brewing system has one peculiar advantage for every coffee lover: it is the great variety of beverages you can make with just one coffee machine. There are almost 20 tastes performed in the market. You have only to choose pod you like and insert it in the special slot of the machine.


  • rather high price for the milk beverage

To brew coffee you like you have to purchase special capsules or pods with the taste your prefer. Pods usually are sold in boxes of 16 capsules. One capsule is one cup. If it is traditional black coffee, it’s 16 cups of beverage. But when you purchase cappuccino box, you get only 8 cups of the drink (8 capsules of coffee and 8 of milk). Well, you can count easily.

  • milk powder instead of real milk

It is one of the great disadvantages of the whole single-serve system of coffee brewing. Every milk beverage is made of powder milk and it reflects in the taste of the drink. So, if you are keen to find a coffee maker for brewing the milk types of the drink, you’d better look over Mr.Coffee Cafe Barista Premium Espresso/Cappuccino System.

  • body of cheap plastic

The body of the Mini Me is made of very cheap flimsy plastic. It is possible not notice it because the machine has a really great design, but in time while using it, some parts will become noisy.

In conclusion

Delonghi Nescafe Dolce Gusto Mini Me is a rather interesting choice for a small household of the single person. It’s absolutely useless for large families because one cup of the drink will become too expensive.
