Dolce Gusto Jovia was the great bet of Dolce Gusto to capture the attention of users during the 2014 Christmas campaign, more than five years ago, along with the other model launched at that time: the Dolce Gusto Oblo. With both the Jovia and the Oblo, Dolce Gusto continued in a continuous line, without introducing great novelties into the market and conserving the signs of identity of its coffee machines: striking and elegant design, bright colours to choose from, and great simplicity of use.
The leading quality of this Jovia coffee maker is its egg-shaped design. The oval features give it a very elegant, friendly, not at all aggressive appearance, and also allow the coffee maker to be quite narrow at its base. The height is more or less the same as the rest of the Dolce Gusto models, and the depth also gives a standard measurement.
We feel like a more manageable and portable coffee maker than, for example, the Oblo in this respect it looks a little more like the Mini Me. However, its water tank is a little larger (0.8 litres for the Jovia and 0.6 litres for the Mini Me).
Like the Oblo, Dolce Gusto has chosen to make the Jovia a purely manual model, not an automatic one. We don’t know if after this initial release Dolce Gusto plans to market the automatic version of both. Still, it certainly seems to us to be a detail to be taken into account (although we know that automatic versions are much more expensive than manual ones). The instructions for use are precisely the same as for all other Dolce Gusto coffee machines.
The starting price of the Jovia is very competitive compared to the rest of the Dolce Gusto range, around 75 Pounds on Amazon. A great advantage that burned out during Christmas 2014. In the physical stores and on the official Dolce Gusto website, this Jovia could be bought for 89 Pounds, a starting price the same as the Oblo.
NOTE: Currently, in 2020, the price of the Dolce Gusto Jovia is reduced on Amazon below 40 Pounds.
Finally, we remind you that if you want to know more details about this Jovia or have any doubts about its operation, you can read its user guide from our website to get rid of doubts once and for all:

Dolce Gusto Jovia – Main features
Buying a Dolce Gusto Jovia is a decision that responds more to aesthetic or economic criteria than to its performance, as these are practically the same as any other manual Dolce Gusto coffee maker. Let’s review them:
- 15 bar pressure pump
- Energy-saving function: the Jovia turns off automatically after 5 minutes of non-use.
- Approximate dimensions: 23 x 17 x 32 cms.
- The water tank has a capacity of 0.8 litres. Within the average Dolce Gusto, although somewhat small compared to other brands.
- No preheating required: thanks to the Thermoblock system, your Jovia will be ready almost instantly.
- It has an indicator of the water level that we have left in the tank.
- All its components are dishwasher safe.
- The anti-drip tray is removable. Its height can be raised or lowered to our liking so we can use cups, glasses of all kinds.
- Automatic descaling warning: the switch on the coffee machine will flash orange when it needs cleaning.
Advantages of the Dolce Gusto Jovia
- For a new coffee maker (model just released on the market) its price is very competitive.
- The design is exquisite, but above all practical: the Jovia is one of the most compact Dolce Gusto coffee machines.
Disadvantages of the Dolce Gusto Jovia
- We do not understand that Dolce Gusto has not released an automatic version of this Jovia coffee maker.
- The 0.8-litre water tank seems to us to be somewhat insufficient.

Why buy a Dolce Gusto Jovia?
The Jovia coffee maker is a model to keep in mind if you are going to buy a Dolce Gusto coffee maker. It has very similar qualities to the rest of the range, and its price is not high.
If you don’t mind the fact that it’s manual, both the Jovia and Oblo coffee machines are the two most innovative alternatives within the Dolce Gusto brand. And if the manual Dolce Gusto coffee makers do not convince you, you can always make use of a little help like the DGTimer app.
