Bitter & Weak

Was excited to get a sample of this new variety, but was most disappointed. I found it to be weak, even when made with less water than instructed and also it had a bitterness which was not pleasant. I shall not be buying this variety and will stick to my usual Americano or Grande Intenso.

Weak with bitter taste

Most disappointed looks and taste very weak. Won't be ordering again.

Weak, bland, and lacking flavour even with half the water

Was disappointed with this as the description is misleading. Should be called "coffee for those who like really weak, flavourless coffee" Even when made in long espresso size it still tastes pretty weak without any real character

This is awful, sold as a large coffee but lucky to get over half a normal cup, lacks flavour, just terrible. Back to the drawing board for this, have to use 2 pods for one cup. Making me consider the product has a whole, others make better coffee.... that fill a cup!

Review by Paul (Posted on 04/01/2017)

This is supposed to be a long cup, using 300ml of water. This makes it very weak and watery. I have tried with only 200ml and this is better, but still not the tastiest coffee.

Verry Unimpressed.

After all the build-up what a total disappointment, this is the poorest coffee that I have ever tasted, you are certainly letting Dolce Gusto down big time, I have only had my machine a few months and I have always been impressed with the coffee drinks, my all time favorite is Cappuccino which is fantastic, thank God that this new brand Preludio was free, it is un-drinkable, please do not give me any more.

Review by James (Posted on 02/01/2017)

After all the build-up I was expecting something spectacular, what a let-down, the only good thing is that it was a free sample, I will certainly not be buying any, it does not even represent coffee, I I was selling Dolce Gusta I would scrap the idea. I love my machine and my favourite flavour is Cappuccino, I will stick with that.

Review by James (Posted on 02/01/2017)

I usually have a standard Grande in the morning and thought the longer version would be worth a try. Even though there is only 1 difference in the strength rating the 300 ml was very watered down but tastes ok when reverting back to the Grande setting of 200ml. Makes me wonder if a standard pod has just been relabled.

Lovely big cup of coffee

I admit I'm not a coffee expert but I really like this coffee. I sometimes fancy something a bit bigger than the grande size and to me the strength and flavour is just right. I see others reviewers dont like it but i think it's down to personal taste and i like a coffee that doesnt give me the shakes like some of the high street stuff does!
