Introduction

Looking for a compact pod coffee brewer that brews strong coffee at a reasonable price? The Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio ($129.99) has those qualities in spades and actually produced some of the strongest brews we've tested. While there are customization options available, the Genio (made by DeLonghi) has a simple design that doesn't over-complicate the brewing process for customers. You can make hot and cold drinks with the Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio and it doubles as an instant espresso maker, but its true value lies in its excellence as a simple, effective pod coffee brewer.
