We recently got ourselves a Nescafé Dolce Gusto Piccolo on promotion. No secrets here; the coffee is not bad but it’s not great either. Personally it’s not as good as what you can get from a café but marginally better than the instant stuff you find on the market. Sure it’s fun now but the novelty is easily short-lived – I would trade up for an expresso machine in a whim.

At worst the coffee is drinkable considering came out of a pod and took 60 seconds to make.
