Enjoy intense aromas with hints of lively fruity winey notes, balanced with subtle sweet cereal-chocolatey notes, for a strong but round and pleasant to drink coffee until the last sip. With milk, its strength is tempered but it keeps its full coffeeness.

An improvement that was needed.

One compliant that many have with this coffee machine is lack of amount, portions are too small, these XL pods is a start to solving that problem, please expand to the 2 pod drinks range please. (Tip : Buy them from B&M for only £4 and a free mug)

Excellent breakfast coffee

I like this in the mornings with breakfast.. Excellent cup of coffee

Review by Keith (Posted on 02/11/2018)

The Preludio Intenso was the best long coffee that DG did. The rebrand a change of blend to Americano Bold Morning has resulted in a weak, watery, tasteless excuse for a coffee. Very disappointing for a long time Preludio Intenso drinker.

Dolce Gusto

Hi Fred, the recipe hasn’t changed. We simply upgraded the packaging with a simplified name (from Preludio Intenso to Americano Bold Morning), to help consumers better navigate the large black cup range.

My new favourite

Strong and smooth to kickstart the day. 300ml too. I’m loving it

Not Nice

I don't know why DG have stopped doing my usual coffee, Grande Intenso which was lovely. This was the only one available on-line that seemed a comparable strength and most of the reviews were pretty positive. Had my first mug this morning (couldn't face another). It was like drinking weak-ish muddy water. No cremolata or depth of flavour. Just a shame I ordered six boxes.

Hi Susan, just to inform you that Grande Intenso was re-named Americano Intesno. Preludio Intenso was re-named Americnao Bold Morning. The recipe hasn’t changed for either product. We simply upgraded the packaging with a simplifie (Answered on 16/10/2018)

Currently my favourite

At the moment this is my favourite for flavour and value for money as it makes a decent mug sized coffee. I do find however the taste and strength varies even though I use the same amount of water each time

Lovely strong coffee

I like this one first thing in the morning such a rich taste and aroma if you like a strong coffee this is for you

Excellent long black with real depth of flavour....

My previous favourite was the Grande Intenso....but this is even better, particularly since I like a long black. Beautiful intense flavour with a hint of fruit. We still visit our favourite coffee shop for the ambience, but we now have better coffee at home...

Definitely my new favourite.

It's good to have a strong coffee that lasts.
