  The Nescafe Dolce Gusto Circolo is a unique-looking single serve coffeemaker that can make both hot and cold drinks, as well as espresso. The coffee maker's design won an International Forum Design award and a Red Dot Design honorable mention. The coffeemaker uses prepackaged pods of coffee or tea to make a variety of drinks -- but a single pod does not always make a single drink, some drinks require multiple pods. For example, a pack of 16 macchiato mixes includes 8 coffee pods and 8 milk pods which combine to make the drink.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports listed to the Dolce Gusto Circolo as a recommended buy, giving the highest score among pod coffee makers (76 out of 100). Consumer Reports rated the model as excellent first-cup speed and repeat speed, while brewing temperature, temperature consistency and convenience all rated as very good. There are few user reviews of the Dolce Gusto Circolo, but the ones available were positive. On Amazon, more than half of the posted reviews included positive remarks and ratings. The machine was praised for heating water for brewing nearly instantaneously. One negative comment about the machine is the limited selection of coffee and tea products available.
