Of late the Ape to Gentleman office has a new aroma to savour, the fresh scent of the latest men’s grooming products has been replaced by wafts of espresso and cappuccino. Responsibility lies with the Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio Coffee Machine, a partnership between coffee specialist Nescafé and kitchen appliance manufacturer of note, DeLonghi.

A watering essential and at times, a saviour, coffee plays a large part in any healthy work-work imbalance. As well as being a lifeline (think caffeine) and a delicious drink, a coffee break can reinvigorate, earn a few minutes of your time to spawn ideas and ensure optimal output is achieved. On the other foot, there are negatives in the form of financial obligations to this relationship, consider your annual spend at the local coffee shop for instance – this girl’s expensive.

Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio Coffee Machine – convenient ‘pod’ system.

Coffee shops offer convenience, plenty of choice and delicious coffee – all of these are good things but  you pay for it. The alternative is the Nescafé Dolce Gusto Genio Coffee Machine. At around £130 for the Genio it’s as affordable as coffee machines come and with DeLonghi producing the machine the quality is excellent. The best part; a cup (via a pod, see above) of cappuccino (or 1 of 25 different varieties) will cost you around £0.5o, take 20 seconds to arrive piping hot and taste delicious.
