With a rich flavour and delicate aroma, its smooth, round characteristics are enhanced by adding milk. Intensity 4 out of 11.


The box contains 16 capsules designed for NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® capsule coffee machines for you to prepare 16 cups of Americano Smooth Morning (Formerly called Preludio).



Americano Smooth Morning is an elegant blend of 4 premium coffees from South and Central America and Asia, softly roasted to release their rich coffee aromas and delicate notes of toasted bread and caramel. Our coffee creators have specially adjusted the grinding for this extra large mug size (300 ml), to deliver a smooth and generous body with full coffee flavours but no bitterness.


Create professional quality coffees with a thick velvety crema, thanks to the machine’s high pressure (up to 15 bars).

great coffee

this is very smooth coffee and I can drink it all day my favourite one so far

Review by Stephen (Posted on 23/06/2019)
Nice balance of flavour

I found these to be nicer than the standard Americano pods, i'm not a fan of very bitter coffee and found that these strike a nicer balance of flavour and strength than the Americano pods.

Superb addition

I found this one perfect, it was bought in a gift pack as a present but I was pleasantly surprised and it has now gone to the top of my morning coffee list.

Very variable

We have tried this recently and, like the Preludio before it, seems to vary in flavour from pod to pod. At best it is OK but often we were left with feeling that it tastes like instant coffee which is, of course, much cheaper. We love the Bold Morning version of this - perhaps dilute this one down with extra hot water rather than try this 'smooth' version which isn't actually smooth at all.

Lovely Coffee

I tried this recently after realising there was more choices then the Americano I normally have. It’s such a lovely smooth coffee and enjoyed with my breakfast every morning. I would recommend this flavour every time.

Breakfast coffee

I must admit I do prefer a stronger coffee but I was surprised with this, yes it is weaker but I do like it with my breakfast, nothing wrong with it at all.. Nice to see Nescafe catering for all tastes .. if you like it a little stronger and larger try the Americano Bold Morning

Disappointed in this coffee. I had to add a shot of espresso to get some sort of taste of coffee. Better if you have it as a smaller drink, not XL.

Review by Paul (Posted on 30/10/2018)

It was silly to rename Preludio to this. Americana was/is a terrible drink, yet this is OK one. I have a feeling that previous Preludio was a bit different though.

Dolce Gusto

Thanks for your feedback Dm. We made no change to the recipe however, just the name!

Pleasant but not as good as Preludio

Acceptable morning coffee. Sent as alternative to Preludio which it does not quite match as the type/sources of the coffee are not the same.

Very nice coffe

It says in the write up that this was previously called Preludio, I still have some of those left which I always served with 250mls and it was good, if I do that with this one it is a stronger coffee so I have bought a bigger mug and its good. Its very nice I like it I dont understand the bad write ups, if you want a stronger coffee use a little less water!
