Best Coffee.

One of my favorit taste.

Review by Dariusz (Posted on 19/06/2019)
Prefer the Grande Intenso

Like several others I am disappointed about the change. It's no good saying that you have only changed the packaging and not the coffee unless you have put more coffee in the pod. The Grande Intenso made 180ml of coffee whereas this is supposed to make 230ml. An Americano is a weaker black coffee for the American market, Europeans prefer it stronger. So you have renamed the stronger version of a coffee and want us to make it weaker by putting in an extra 50ml of water. No thanks, I make it a Grande by using 180ml.

different name but same flavours

I do love this intenso first thing in the morning! i set it to number 6, rather than number 7 that it states, just give it that little extra kick. I did worry that the flavour would change. I see some people have commented but i cant tell any difference, that said the response to the reviews is that they have not changed the recipe anyway. I think it may be worth Nescafe putting up next to the different pods what they used to be called. this would help us alot!!

Perfectly Intense

"Life is to short for bad coffee" is a motto I live by and the joy of being able to make a delicious intense Americano in the morning without the hassle of having to use wait for the filter machine to finish. The Americano Intenso is delicious!

Not Grande Intenso....

Disappointed that yet again a coffee company changes a favourite coffee. The Grande Americano does not have the same flavour and depth as the Grande Intenso had.

Dolce Gusto

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

It's not a Grande Intenso!

Sad to see the demise of Grande Intenso - the Americano intense version is not a patch on it. Though I have to say it beats anything that Costa or Starbucks produce

Review by Fred (Posted on 02/10/2018)
Dolce Gusto

Sorry to hear that you're disappointed Fred. However there has been no recipe change during the change from Grande Intenso to Americano Intenso. Just the name!
