Only coffee I would drink

Why are you not listening to any of the recent reviews Like a lot of people I don’t take sugar in any hot drinks This used to be the only coffee I would drink but now totally ruined Have tried swapping to Americano intense which is ok with the addition of warm milk but not the same Are you every going to return to the original recipe or just continue to ignore all the negative reviews?

Terrible decision to change the recipe

Unfortunately I have to agree with all the other reviews here. This went from my favorite coffee to being awful due to the added sugar. I contacted the complaints department directly about this and they said they'd received user feedback that the coffee was too bitter, despite it having close to a 5 star rating on this site. I sincerely hope they change it back!

Why change it??

This used to be my favourite drink but no longer! Completely spoilt by adding sugar!

I got all excited and bought 2 boxes of my favourite pods when they finally became available after months, only for it to have sugar in!!! You really need to put a disclaimer in that there is sugar in your coffees. This isn't just for preferred taste, this is also for diabetics. I was going to give my Dad one, so lucky I tried it first.

Don't take sugar in my coffee

I was about to order more cafe au lait intenso but on reading the reviews about the extra sugar content I won't bother now. I hate sweet coffee and enjoyed the strength and taste of the intenso. Their flat white is too sweet also so won't be buying that again. I don't take sugar in my coffee so will have to look elsewhere in future unfortunately.

Totally Ruined

This used to be my favourite coffee until you added sugar to it. Why would you do such a thing? You have totally ruined it. There’s nothing worse in my opinion than adding sweetness to something that’s already perfect. Surely if people want sugar they can add it. Please go back to the original recipe. It’s pretty obvious that the majority of drinkers agree that it’s the worst thing you could have done. You’re going to lose a lot of customers if you don’t do something soon, me included.

Recipe change is complete failure

The only conclusion I can come to is that sugar is cheaper than coffee, this is now nearly as disgusting as the flat white and I am looking into re-usable pods so I can control what goes into them

Why ?

As a lot of the previous ex intenso customers have said. Toooooooo sweet

Disgusting new recipe

I ordered six boxes of this coffee not aware that the recipe had changed with more sugar added. I contacted Dolce Gusto direct to question why this was not stipulated on the website but this question was ignored. I was just told to return the unopened boxes for a refund. This new recipe tastes absolutely disgusting. Please change it back to the original!!

It's changed, far to sweet, digusting

Why have you ruined a good product. The extra sweetnes kills the taste of the coffee. It must have been a mistake in the production because nobody in their right mind would have made a coffee like this.
