Nespresso recipes are better than just your average cup of coffee, and let me tell you why! For the uninitiated, a Nespresso machine is a type of coffee maker that uses pre-packaged coffee pods, known as Nespresso capsules, to make a single cup of coffee. I LOVE mine!

The process involves placing a small capsule into the machine — like with a Keurig — which then pierces the capsule and releases hot water under high pressure to extract the coffee. The result is a consistent and convenient cup of coffee — or espresso — with crema on top! It’s like having a traditional espresso machine right at home.

The best part is that the Nespresso machine is quite versatile. There are tons of variations you can take to make delicious, coffee- or espresso-based drinks with easy-to-find ingredients. Some of my favorites include the Maple Brown Sugar Oat Milk Latte Recipe, the Campfire Mocha Latte, and the Cappuccino Crème Brûlée!

Just put the banana puree in a glass, froth the milk, add it to the glass & stir to combine! Lastly, brew 2 shots of espresso into the glass and drizzle with caramel.

2. Pumpkin Spice Coffee

I could drink pumpkin spice coffee in the dead of summer – I don’t even care. I think it’s just so tasty so this Nespresso recipe is one of my favorites!
