Transform your weekday mornings with NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Americano Smooth Morning, our fantastic XL coffee – designed to make a bigger mug of coffee that you can enjoy for longer.


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).


With our hermetically sealed capsules, which preserve coffee freshness, you’ll enjoy rich aromatic cups every time.


With NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®, you can enjoy over 30 premium coffee creations, whether you like your coffee short or long, black or white. Enjoy a choice of bold Ristretto, intense Espresso, aromatic Lungo and full-bodied Grande or frothy Cappuccino, smooth Latte Macchiato, or even hot chocolate, teas, and cold beverages.

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.

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!

Not nice at all

I am persuaded to go back to instant coffee.

Just a wonderful coffee!

I absolutely love this coffee, perfectly smooth and with a great coffee kick needed in the morning! My favorite one!

not tried yet

Glad I read these reviews, searched Nescafe site with no success to find how to make a large mug with an automatic machine. Would have helped if they included how to use with free samples or am I just THICK!

Not for Coffee Lovers

Do not buy if you actually like the taste of coffee. A big mug of watery, flavourless rubbish. Got for the odd occasions when I fancy I longer drink, but wished I hadn't bothered. 15 pods going to be thrown away if I can't find someone to take them from me
