Nescafe Dolce Gusto Melody, $299
THIS machine from Nescafe and De’Longhi is something of an overachiever. Said to be the first in Australia to make 14 types of drinks, from piping hot espressos to hot chocolate and iced tea, the Melody is one of four in the newly released Dolce Gusto range ($149-$349), which uses a simple, multi-beverage capsule system.
