Nescafe Gold Blend Barista Machine Make Coffee Like A Barista (Review)


Hola! So if you have been following me on my social media, you would noticed I've been sharing (or showing off) my new toy a lot recently. So sorry for the spam, but I can't help it! It was so much fun trying out the different cafe style coffee Nescafe Gold Blend Barista could make. And since there are many requests or question on the machine, I might as well share my verdict here. Well, this post is especially for you folks! Frankly, life is so much easier and fun after owning the Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine. I'm not very much a morning person, hence the machine practically saves me from my morning rush to grab a quick cuppa. On top of that, beside black coffee, the machine could also churn cappuccino and latte machiato. Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine is the only coffee machine you need to brew cafe quality coffee at home!

Just select your desired menu icon accordingly and your beverages will be ready in a jiffy with just one touch of a button. So user friendly!
There's also a hot water function for heating up the cup. Just touch Cappuccino and Americano icon simultaneously for hot water.

For first time use, an initial rising is required. Fill the tank with water and re-attach the water tank to the machine.

Fill the coffee box with Nescafe Gold Blend coffee and insert the box back to the Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine. 
Do note that other brand or fine powered coffee is not recommended to be used in the machine as it will result in blockage issues. 

Switch the machine on. The power button will starts blinking green while the machine is heating up for approximately 25 seconds. Select Espresso icon when the icon light turn steady green.
Rinsing will starts, just wait until it stops. After the rinsing is done, all lights will turn steady green and the machine is now ready for use.

Latte Machiato 
Among all the coffee, my favourite has to be the Latte Macchiato. With Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine, making Latte Macchiato at home is easy as pie.
For cup size of 300ml, pour 60ml of milk into the cup. Place the cup into the machine and select Latte Macchiato icon. Watch as the machine perform its magic, from steaming and frothing the milk for a perfect cup of Latte Machiato. 
The same method applies to Cappucino, but use only 50ml of milk. It is best to use cold milk with at least 3% fat/full cream milk to achieve a good froth.

Espresso
Suggested cup size 100 ml.

Lungo
Suggested cup size 200 ml.

Americano
Suggested cup size 250 ml.

Cappucino
Suggested cup size 300 ml.

Latte Macchiato
Suggested cup size 300 ml.

Literally, it thrills me how the small but mighty Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine able to deliver such a delightful cafe coffee experience in the comfort of my home. My cup of coffee is now more amazing and exciting with all the different flavours. So much umphh!

That's not all! Did you know you could also adjust the strength of the coffee to your personal taste? Just touch and hold the menu icon of the beverage to adjust for 2 seconds. The power button light will turn to orange while the selected menu icon lights green and coffee extraction will starts. When the selected menu icon stop flashing green, you can adjust the amount of hot water to your desired amount. Just touch the menu icon to stop. If you do not touch, the machine will stop at the maximum water level.  Once the setting changed, the new amount of hot water will be used as the standard amount for the next coffee and will only be reset when you turn off the power.

Thanks to Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine, everyone can have a personal barista at home. Now if you are a coffee lover, this machine is a great investment as each cup of coffee literally cost around 50 cents only. Just imagine how much $$ you will save in the long run.
