Capsule Adapter Nespresso – Dolce Gusto

One of the most common questions among capsule coffee maker users around the world is about capsule adapters. A Nespresso capsule adapter, or a Dolce Gusto capsule adapter, are small devices or accessories that are inserted into the original capsule holder of the coffee maker and that allow capsules from other systems to be used.

You know that capsules from different systems often have different dimensions, sizes and materials. And, therefore, they are not compatible with one coffee machine to another. All this can be solved with a capsule adapter.

And of course, the star product is the Dolce Gusto Nespresso adapter. It is a system that allows you to use Dolce Gusto capsules in a Nespresso coffee machine or Nespresso capsules in a Dolce Gusto coffee machine. It’s almost like turning a Dolce Gusto into Nespresso or vice versa.

Unfortunately, it does not yet exist in the market, but some particular attempts to solve the problem (in a more or less satisfactory way, that is another question). Many users manufacture them themselves in an “artisanal” way, but logically they are not marketed.

It was and still is possible to buy an adapter for coffee capsules from some other system. And of these, there are several models available on the market, as we will see below.

It is important to differentiate between them because a Nespresso-Dolce Gusto capsule adapter is not the same as an adapter only for capsules from one of the two systems.

In any case, let’s start with the central article that concerns us: the Nespresso to Dolce Gusto capsule converter.

Nespresso Dolce Gusto Capsule Adapter

They are used to use a capsule from one system in a coffee maker from another system. They can be Nespresso to Dolce Gusto adapter or Dolce Gusto to Nespresso adapter.

Nespresso Capsule Adapter

As you can see in the pictures, this adapter for Nespresso capsules in Dolce Gusto coffee machines has the same shape as the original Dolce Gusto capsule holder. The difference is inside, where we find a small box to fit Nespresso capsules (much smaller).

It works very simply: replace the original capsule holder of your Dolce Gusto coffee machine with this adapter. When you open it, all you have to do is insert any Nespresso format pod in the same way as you would a pod from the original system.

You also have the option of using Nespresso compatible capsules in Nespresso’s own coffee machines or authorised Nestlé brand partners such as the NPG Fiorella NP-150 or the Xiaomi Scishare coffee machine. Be careful because many users buy other adapters for other capsules, which are used in Dolce Gusto coffee machines (in this article, you have some examples).

Dolce Gusto Capsule Adapter

Dolce Gusto Capsule Adapter

First of all, let’s clarify concepts: a Dolce Gusto capsule adapter is not the same as a reusable or refillable capsule. It is an adapter that allows you to use capsules from other systems in a Dolce Gusto coffee machine.

The most famous Dolce Gusto capsule adapter in the world is the “Tres” capsule adapter. In Brazil, they are well known, and their market share does not stop growing. Their trade name is Multicap.

The Multicap capsule adapter is compatible with all Dolce Gusto coffee machines and is removable. It means that you can remove it or put it in your coffee machine when it suits you (you shouldn’t have it there permanently). In this video, you can learn more about how it works:

Another essential adapter for Dolce Gusto capsules is the K-Fee system. This German adapter works just like the previous Multicap and allows you to use K-Fee capsules (smaller than the original Dolce Gusto capsules) in your coffee maker.

K-fee System Capsule Adapter for Dolce Gusto® Machines
  • Works in all Dolce Gusto® machines.
  • Compatible with K-fee - your system capsules.
  • Suitable for Tealounge System capsules.
  • Suitable for Aldi® Expressi capsules.
  • TÜVRheinland® certified quality.

Senseo Capsule Adapter

If you have a Senseo coffee maker, don’t worry. There’s good news for you, too. One of the most interesting Senseo capsule adapters we know of is this one, which does not allow you to use capsules, but ground coffee directly in your Senseo coffee maker. See how easy it is to use:

Coffeeduck - Porte Dosettes pour Senseo Quandrante - Viva - Latte
  • CoffeeDuck is multifunctional, 2 original pads can be used ( without the lid)
  • Try at home espresso ground for the best taste
  • Easy cleaning, dishwasher safe
  • Technical information: compatible with Senseo HD7850, HD7860 AND SENSEO LATTE / QUANDRANTE, HD7873 SENSEO TWIST, HD7825 machines

What about Multi capsule Coffee Makers?

Those looking for a capsule adapter are usually because they have a Nespresso coffee machine or a Dolce Gusto and want to take advantage of their purchase to use the capsules of the other system.

But there is another alternative: buy a coffee machine that is compatible with all capsules. Does that sound utopian? No, it exists: for example, the Krea Multipla, or Krea ES-200, which originates from Portugal. It is becoming increasingly popular and not only allows the use of both Nespresso and Dolce Gusto capsules but also ESE pods or even normal ground coffee. Another example is the Ikohs Potts.

This is achieved by means of an ingenious system of adapters that are inserted into the capsule holder. And you can also buy adapters for other systems, such as Lavazza, Caffitaly and many others. Impressive!

And watch out because the success of these initiatives is leading to the appearance on the market of more and more multi-capsule coffee machines of this type. For more information, see the guide we have just linked to.
