[REVIEW] Dolce Gusto MINI ME - Perfect Coffee In Under A Minute

This quote from my husband sums it up:
"A rich filter coffee in seconds"
When I first opened my Dolce Gusto "Mini Me" pod machine I immediately though it looked like a penguin. It fits perfectly into our kitchen, looking pretty cool on the sideboard, getting lots of compliments from visitors.

It's so easy to make a barista-style coffee using this machine because after you have ensured that the water tank is full, fed the "pod" into a special drawer and selected the amount of water to be filtered through the pod, the machine does the rest, delivering perfect coffee every time.  Have a look at the video below to see just how easy it is - I filmed this in real time. 

There are lots of different flavours of coffee pods available. Some of the coffee styles require more than one pod (such as the cappuccino) but there are many that only require one pod. You can also mix up pods to create different "recipes".

At the time of writing three boxes of pods (16 per box) were on sale at my local supermarket on a "3 for £10" offer. It sounds expensive however your perfect cup of coffee works out at around 21p each - much cheaper than your specialist barista-style branded cafes.  Saying that, this isn't the sort of coffee I would drink each time I fancy a brew - they are more a one-a-day treat or a morning booster. 

Let me know if you have one of these.  What's your favourite coffee pod?
