Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio Coffee Brewer Review
As well as the Dolce Gusto Genio performs, it's even better on your wallet.
While both the Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio and Melody 2 both cost $130 MSRP and have the similar gumball machine-like design, the Genio is undoubtedly the better purchase. The big problem with the Melody 2 is that it forces you to guess how much coffee to brew per cup. The Genio, on the other hand, makes life easy for the user by letting them choose the optimal setting on the wheel dial at the top of the machine. Unless you have a strong preference otherwise, you'll use the dial to add and subtract bars on the LED-backlit screen, which corresponds with the number of bars on each pod. Furthermore, the Genio blew the Melody 2 away in our TDS performance tests. In our small cup test, the Genio had a much higher TDS percentage: 1.88% to 1.08%.
