What to Add to your Nespresso Coffee
Nespresso coffee is a single-serve espresso system made by Nestle which uses capsules filled with pre-ground and pre-measured coffee. It is a convenient way to make a delicious espresso, but there are still options for jazzing it up a little! Here are some fun things to consider adding to your Nespresso for a delicious spin on a classic.
The classic cafe mocha or latte is not complete without a delicious syrup, and this same rule applies to adding syrup to your Nespresso. There are a variety of syrup flavors to choose from, from classics such as carmel, hazelnut, or mocha to adventurous flavors such as Madagascar vanilla or sugar free options. Try adding one pump of syrup for a subtle taste, or two or three pumps for a full flavor experience.
Another classic add-in for coffee drinks is milk. For those who prefer to avoid dairy, there are plenty of non-dairy alternatives such as soy, almond, or oatmilks. Simply steam your choice of milk and add it to your Nespresso. If you like your drinks a bit sweet, add a drizzle of honey, agave, or maple syrup.
Spices and Other Flavorings
Spices are a great way to bring out different flavors in your Nespresso coffee. Here are some common spices to consider adding:
- Cynnamon: try sprinkling at least one teaspoon of this classic baking spice for a warm and inviting flavor
- Ginger: try adding about one teaspoon of ground or freshly grated ginger for a kick of flavor
- Cardamom: try adding about one teaspoon of this Middle Eastern spice for a warm and inviting cup of espresso
- Vanilla: try adding one teaspoon of real vanilla extract for smooth and creamy flavor
For those with a sweet tooth, try adding a teaspoon of sweetener such as sugar or stevia, or a squirt of flavored creamer for an extra special treat.
