…Is Cribs still a thing?
First world problems are no more, thanks to the Dolce Gusto Eclipse coffee machine in Platinum Silver by De’Longhi, that I’ve been sent to review…
Clearly hearing my on-going internal moaning about having to switch the coffee switch myself on my previous machine, the chaps at Dolce Gusto sent me my brand new machine to try out. I kind of feel like this was a life changing move.
It certainly takes up a lot more room on the kitchen counter than my previous machine, but with a sleek, circular exterior it still looks pretty good. I’m still amazed by the motion of the top half of the coffee machine opening when you press the ‘on’ button to be honest.
Holding more water than my previous machine, this also makes it far better. My smaller machine needed the water refilling pretty much after every cup. The De’Longhi coffee machine only needs refilling every 2-3 cups in comparison.
There’s no pre-warming of the water, like my other machine and because you don’t need to stand watching it you can potter about doing other things (in the whole 5 seconds it takes to make your drink, haha). This is handy though, as I’ve let my previous machine run over several times before by accident!
You can get an abundance of coffee pods in a variety of flavours to enjoy in the machine. My favourite is the café au lait, as they’re the best value for money and you can mix up the flavour by adding your own coffee syrups to them anyway.
If you’re not a coffee fan, you can also get teas and other hot drinks such as Chai Latte, so they’re a lot more versatile than you first think!
