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

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!

Not as good as Grande Intenso

Of the 53 reviews on this page only 3 relate to Americano Intenso - the rest are reviews of the now discontinued Preludio Intenso or Grande Intenso, which were my favourite Nescafe pods. My 20-year old Krups coffee machine was brought back into service today!

Review by Brian (Posted on 29/09/2018)
Good but not as good as I would like!

I'm still looking for that home-brewed coffee that's as good as Costa. This is almost there but not quite. Not quite enough in one pod for a big mug!

It's no Preludio

Sadly I am mourning the demise of Preludio Intenso - This is no match and sadly I might have to "mothball" by dolce gusto machine as there are no other coffees that do it for me like Preludio did :-(

Review by Neville (Posted on 27/09/2018)
Dolce Gusto

Hi Neville. this product is what once was 'Grande Intenso'. Preludio Intenso was re-named to Americano Bold Morning. We would suggest trying that instead!

Like Preludo Intenso Better

I went to re order my stock and found that the Preludo Intenso was no longer available and is replaced by this one. Although the Intensity level is 9 against Preludo's 8 I found that it tasted weaker. I read other reviews which said to let it develop , so I will try that or add a shot of Espresso.

Grande intenso

Just about the strongest flavour in the range so nice

Review by Thomas (Posted on 23/08/2018)
Nothing quite like it

I am a proper coffee snob and had no problems giving this 5 stars strong coffee and goes down lovely only a big mug will do
