Dolce Gusto Infinissima Machine
The Dolce Gusto Infinissima is a an exceptionally petite, sleek and tidy coffee machine (available in Black or White in Australia) perfect for a kitchen of any size and style. Its streamlined design and slim profile (just 15cm wide!) makes it an excellent choice for the space-conscious individual. This extremely efficient and surprisingly economical machine will set you back somewhere between $55-$79.*
With its versatile design, the Infinissima allows you to select the extraction quantity and temperature you desire by moving the toggle located on the top of the machine. The luxury of being able to create both cold or hot coffee beverages is certainly a drawcard, along with the inbuilt eco-mode feature, which automatically switches off the machine after 5 minutes of inactivity, making it an cost-effective choice for your kitchen. Hooray for energy-saving perks!
Occasionally, the Infinissima can be prone to spattering a little during the coffee extraction process, however this tends to be minimal. If brewing delicious coffee (with oh-so-smooth crema) from the comfort of your own home is your priority, then the wonderfully affordable Nescafe Dolce Gusto Infinissima Coffee Machine is for you!
Pros: Made from 100% stainless steel with a hard-wearing silicone cap, this refillable coffee capsule base is designed to be endlessly reusable. This incredibly convenient system is also famous for delivering a great coffee with rich crema. WayCap Dolce Gusto compatible packs come with 2 interchangeable Steel Filters per capsule - each one suited to a particular grind size. What's more, this system is also highly practical thanks to the WayCap Dock and Tamper, making it easy to refill your pods in seconds. Easy to clean, environmentally friendly and superior quality - it's basically everything you could possibly want from a refillable coffee capsule.
Cons: It's worth being mindful not to overfill these reusable capsules with coffee, as overfilling may result in incomplete closure of the cap, which can in turn cause issues during the brewing process. We recommend filling the pod with around 7.5g-8.5g of ground coffee (that's two-thirds capacity if you're eyeballing it).
Pros: Made from high-quality stainless steel, SealPod DGpod capsules allow the climate-friendly brewer to create delicious espresso from the comfort of home. DGpod refillable capsules minimise waste and provide a way for you to source coffee from your favourite local cafe or roastery.
Cons: There are a lot of components to the SealPod DGpod system (capsules, covers, lids, strainers and paper filters). Some may find this daunting as they adjust to brewing sustainably. There is also the ongoing purchase of paper filters that could be a slight deterrent.
Pollution-free, highly cost effective and capable of brewing a superb espresso, WayCap for Dolce Gusto are a pretty nifty product, and the obvious choice for anyone keen to reduce their environmental impact whilst not compromising on flavour quality.
