Cafe Au Lait Intenso

I too do not usually write reviews, and this was always my favourite coffee, could never understand why it wasn’t available in the magnum size. Bought it a few months ago, took my first sip and couldn’t believe that horrible sugary taste that hit me, where did that come from and why was it added?? It’s gross! I thought I had a bad one, but they’re all the same. It’s insulting when a manufacturer doesn’t listen to its customers - who else are they trying to please but us?! You had a fantastic product and you messed with it, you got your feedback, now you should revert back to how we liked it?! In the meantime, until the review ratings go up, I’ll stick to the original cafe au lait and just add an espresso. At least I won’t get that disgusting artificial sugary rush with my first sip of the day!

Cafe Au Lait Intenso turns sugary sweet

This used one of my favourite coffees, but no more. The last order i received contained a revoltingly sweet version, which came completely out of the blue and is very unwelcome. I won't be buying this again unless and until it reverts to a non-sweet drink.

Used to be one of my favourites, now horrible, why change a good thing?

Recipe change again?

I bought my first box of Cafe au lait instenso and loved it, but have had 3 more delivered today and the taste is a lot less sweet and its not as creamy? Looking at previous reviews it has maybe reverted back to the old taste?

Awful sugary taste

Won't be buying anymore. Awful taste far too much sugar. Need to go back to the original taste.

Lots of added SUGAR!

I rarely write reviews, but after drinking the first of the new recipe Intenso, I felt I had to. Please, please, please remove the sugar. Oh, and by the way, PLEASE don't add sugar to the regular Cafe au lait!

Awful new taste

For some reason Dolce Gusto have decided to add sugar to this capsule. Now sweet and undrinkable. I wrote and complained and received a very bland and unconvincing reply. It is telling to see there are now more 1* reviews than the others combined.

This used to be my favourite but the recipe has changed and it is far too sweet and now undrinkable. Will not buy again unless it changes back to original recipe.

Why a new recipe?

Intenso is not always easy to get in supermarkets. I have been using the standard Cafe Au Lait, with a top up instant coffee. When we managed to get 3 boxes of Intenso, I was delighted, until I tried the first one. It's got sugar in it and now tastes sweet. However was responsible needs counselling. Due a new machine, Nespresso here I come.

I really do not like this.It seems like a syrup watered down with a bitter taste
