Dualit DCM2X Coffee System and Jug

Product information

Create your ideal breakfast coffee, teatime perk-up brew or after-dinner beverage quicker than ever with the easy-to-use Dualit DCM2X Coffee System and jug.

This 3-in-1 coffee system will take ESE pods, ground coffee and NX capsules to make the coffee that suits you, prepared in the most convenient way for you.

In hardwearing cast aluminium, this Dualit machine offers a clean, sophisticated presence in your kitchen. It hosts a professional filter holder to ensure your coffee is creamy and delicious, and takes ground coffee in one or two serving sizes, or Easy Serve Espresso pods for complete ease of use.

A generous 1.5L capacity water tank ensures you won’t have to refill as often when making drinks - and as it is removable, even when you do have to refill it is perfectly easy and convenient.

Arriving with a milk jug, the Coffee System hosts a foolproof milk froth nozzle designed to let you create perfect froth every time and craft deliciously creamy drinks with minimal effort. The handy 15 bar pressure pump ensures the machine works swiftly, while a Thermobloc heating system heats water on demand.

Even while steaming, this machine ensures your coffee is always delicious: the automatic purge function cools from steaming to the optimum temperature for coffee, giving you the perfect cup. And you can keep your mugs and cups at the optimum temperature too, with the non-slip cup warmer, while letting the drip tray take care of any spillages.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great machine, great coffee, well worth persevering The first ground coffee filter holder was so tight that it was difficult to put the metal filter into it, and virtually impossible to get it out again (several broken finger nails ensued). But Dualit rallied immediately and sent a new part by first class post. In the meantime, I'd bought pods and capsules from John Lewis and started using them. The coffee tastes great and they're so easy to use and mess free, and make great cappuccino too (once you get the hang of positioning the milk frother so that it doesn't spurt) that I'll probably only use ground coffee when I run out of pods/capsules. This was my first ever coffee machine, and I chose this model because I've always liked Dualit (kettle and toaster), and because of its 3 ways to make coffee vs those that only allow Nespresso capsules. But I found it complicated to use at first, and it took four days (one cappuccino a day plus a few practices) before I'd completely got the hang of everything. The final problem was inserting the water tank. The instructions say you need to see bubbles, but they don't tell you that for the bubbles to appear, you have to push the tank downwards once it's aligned. If you don't do that, the machine doesn't work. But everything is now sorted, and I can make my morning cappuccino or expresso in a couple of minutes with no mess at all. And for those who say the coffee isn't hot enough - just run some hot water into the cup first! My coffee is piping hot every time. And the machine is easy to clean too. 28 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't be better Replaced our old Dualit with another well known brand which we had to return straight away as it didn't work. Decided to stick with an upgraded Dualit and the build quality, ease of use, range of functions and - most importantly ! - the taste of the coffee. Highly recommend. 22 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nearly perfect I love this machine. I can see a few negative reviews but I've got to say that you need to persist to learn how to use it properly. Obviously it's not producing an instant brew but it is worth learning the techniques in order to have the pleasure of this machine. (For example, I don't think the drip tray leaks ...but it needs emptying often etc) The reason that I'm not giving 5 stars is that it's a bit of a hassle to get hold of the Dualit coffee. I have found that the Senseo pods works with the machine so I use these a lot. The ground coffee option works well too. I only wish that, with the capsule option, that my machine was able to use Nespresso capsules and then it would be perfect. 21 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great coffee I bought this machine to replace my 2009 model which had been in daily use since summer 2009 with no real problems. In the years leading up to the replacement, the only issue I have had was the brew head basket being put into a dish washer despite knowing not to put into a dishwasher, but too much "Christmas cheer" caused a lapse in cognivity and I paid the price. I had no issues at all and when the old machine finally died, I bought a new model (DCM2X) without hesitation. Super machine, can thoroughly recommend. 26 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase After reading a number of reviews I was both excited and apprehensive about buying this coffee machine. After inspecting it in store I was happy with the build quality (similar to other traditional dualit products) and concluded that the majority of reviews I had read were positive. The machine was a birthday gift for my wife and she loves it. We have tried ground coffee, the pods and capsules and all make a very nice coffee with a good crema. The steam wand works great too, easily making frothy milk. You do have to watch the coffee and then stop the water flow when your cup is full or at the desired level - but thats how traditional machines work and not really a big ask for a worthwhile cup of coffee (we're talking about 16 seconds). The machine makes an appropriate amount of noise - i.e. what you would expect from a proper domestic coffee machine. We have had no problems with leaks as some people have reported. If you want to use ground coffee the machine is supplied with only 20 filter papers which is a bit disappointing, and John Lewis don't sell these as a separate item, but they can be easily found online. 06 October 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing We received this coffee machine as a wedding gift 2 years ago, and we have not opened any gifts until this week due to moving house etc - so unfortunately the 2 yr guarantee has expired. However I was disappointed to find the water tank had 3 huge cracks in it, which I only realised when starting to fill it!! The quality of the product felt poor considering the cost of the machine. 04 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Delighted I bought this coffee machine as a present for my husband, after doing quite a bit of research and reading other reviews. I'm so pleased with the machine and so is my husband, who is the main user of it. The three options of coffee making are so useful. The capsules and pods are easy to use, and they are both easily obtained through the John Lewis website, as is the ground coffee option, Another plus, is that our cups and mugs fit the machine, and two cups of coffee can be made at the same time. All round, an excellent machine, for us there are no negatives about it at all. 20 August 2014
