Lovely coffee

This is my favourite coffee that I've bought for a machine. I can't understand some of the bad reviews. This coffee isn't bitter at all, just a great cup of lovely coffee!

Review by Tina (Posted on 23/03/2017)

Received these pods as part of a bulk multibuy freebie. After tasting them I honestly thought it must be a duff batch and that is why they were being offered free. Surely, no way could these be intentionally so weak and tasteless? Looks like weak beer rather than coffee and the cardboard box packaging probably has more flavour. I tried using 2 pods in a vain attempt to get double strength and it became darker - but with the same zero flavour. Smacks of a cynical re-branding exercise to dumb-down decent coffee with a cheap and nasty alternative. Watch as the regular pods inevitably become "premium" varieties with a 50% surcharge...

Café increíble!

Love this variety of coffee! It has an interestingly bold nature to it, with deep and subtle notes that add a slight bitterness to it that are balanced out by it's smooth texture and warming aromas - a perfect drink to start your morning with and a coffee that would put a smile on anyones face!

Yummy as hell.

This coffee is absolutely magic to me. I love Lungo don't get me wrong. I think the way you do it may be part of the problem. I love to put sweetener in the cup first. Add Preludo and then add some double cream. Just delightful.

I really like this coffee. Lovely flavour, smooth and not at all bitter but I do make it stronger.

Unpleasant taste and aftertaste

Very disappointed as I like a long coffee. Unpleasant stale taste with a horrid lingering aftertaste. Went in the bin will not buy again. However cortado a beautiful coffee especially with added hot milk.

nothing quite like it

bought a box in Asda as new quite looking forward to it from description what I tasted was beyond description Never tasted coffee quite like it the coloured water I got from the machine was like something that had been around for a number of years was weak and I thought it had been old enough to have gone stale QUITE REVOLTING don't know if the bin appreciated it any less than me

Bitter & Weak

I ordered this coffee pod box the moment it became available on subscription and I have to say I was deeply disappointed.. Even for a 4 it is very weak and the 300ml capacity doesn't make it look nearly as appealing as it does on the box.. Almost like dish water.. Even the taste seemed very off.. It was as if someone hadn't emptied the coffee filter from earlier in the morning and re-brewed it during lunch.. I will not be ordering this one again I'll stick with the Lungo, Grande and Americano blends..

I enjoyed this coffee and am surprised at the number of bad reviews. A long coffee, made with milk (or cream), it suited my taste buds perfectly!

Not good

I rarely write reviews about my purchases but was so disappointed with the Preludio that I had to share. Very weak taste even made with less water, has a very unpleasant bitterness. Tried to add milk to make it taste better but didn't work. I would not recommend it. This is the worst I have tried of Dolce Gusto.
