 December 22, 2018

By  Enda McLarnon

Thnaks for taking the time to read our detailed UK review of the best selling Nescafé Dolce Gusto Jovia by De'Longhi - EDG250B Coffee Machine. That is one long name for a coffee machine.

To simplify this just a little the Italian coffee maker brand De'Longhi have partnered with the coffee brand Nescafé, to produce this coffee machine, and they have then named this model the Gusto Jovia with the model number EDG250.

This machine does have an RRP of £89.99 but we have always been able to find it much cheaper online. The price does vary quite a bit and you can always get some type of online offer, that will help reduce the RRP.

We have reviewed this in detail below. For those of you who don't have time to read this full review we have included a short summary review just below, which you may find helpful.

Please note, "this is a manual coffee pod maker and it is not automatic."

Our Verdict on the Nescafé Dolce Gusto Jovia by De'Longhi

  • This model sells really well and has been doing so for a few years
  • The two brands are well known and there is a really good variety of pods available for this model
  • We don't like the fact that it is manual as it means you have to be there when the coffee is being made to turn it off
  • That  said it does make really good coffee and worth the effort

With an 88% buyer satisfaction rating it is clearly a very good machine that buyers seem to like a lot. In terms of a pod coffee machine this is right at the top of the pile, and came in at number 4 on our list..

However if this is not the model for you, then why not check out our top 10 list of filter coffee machines, by clicking right here.

We believe if you can find this machine for under £50, then it is worth that investment. It does make good latte and it holds the higher latte style glasses which is good.

As long as you are OK with the manual operation, then in terms of style, ease of use and coffee quality this is a very good coffee maker.
