QUESTION:


How does the Dolce Gusto compare to the Keurig?


ANSWER:

Well, as you know, both are single serve brewers. And both use proprietary brewing systems. The Keurig brewers use K-Cups and the Dolce Gusto brewer uses “capsules”.

If you were to compare them side by side in a competition to brew the best cup of regular coffee, I don’t know who would win. I know the Keurig brewer makes great coffee, because I have one myself and use it almost every day.

As for the Dolce Gusto, I have only ever tried it once, and that wasn’t to make a straight coffee, it was a cappuccino.

And that brings us to the principal difference between the two.

If you want a single-serve brewer that makes great coffee, go with Keurig.

If you want a machine that can make you cappuccinos and other exotic coffeehouse beverages, go with the Dolce Gusto Genio.

Unlike regular Keurig brewers, the Dolce Gusto also provides milk capsules. So when making a cappuccino, you add one coffee capsule and one milk capsule to the machine.

So if you would like to be able to make the occasional cappuccino, Caffè Lungo or Latte Macchiato at home, choose the Dolce Gusto.

Otherwise I would go for the Keurig.
