Nespresso | The Art of Coffee + Milk


When it came to purchasing a coffee machine for our new home we didn't think twice about choosing a Nespresso. One of the best decisions we made, our Umilk machine has already done a lot of mileage yet still looks and works like new. Beautifully suited to our white kitchen, I love its sleek, compact design which includes the very clever Aeroccino, a simple and fast automatic system for the preparation of light and creamy hot or cold milk froth.

I'm sure like me, many of you are Nespresso devotees who have enjoyed tasting the extensive range of Grand Cru coffees. What you may not know however, is each Grand Cru actually develops new taste variations when combined with milk. Depending on which Grand Cru you use, a cappuccino, latte or macchiato can reveal many different, delicious aromas. To try for yourself take a look at these recipes, which show you how to enhance your favourite coffee moments throughout the day.

To assist you with your search, use the drop down keys on the left hand side of the site, to choose your preferred Grand Cru, type of milk and even mood. Stepping outside of my (flat white) comfort zone yesterday, this tool helped me find the Winter Breeze coffee recipe, a spicy winter warmer with honey, ginger and cinnamon. With a chill in the air, and a new box of Indriya from India Grand Cru capsules waiting to be tasted for the first time, I couldn't wait to give it a go!

I'm not a fan of sweet coffees, so I adjusted the recipe slightly to include just a drop of honey, rather than a whole spoonful. The touch of ground ginger perfectly compliments the spiciness of the Indriya Grand Cru. I also learnt a new technique of adding the espresso to the milk rather than vice versa, which results in a lovely creamy texture.

Using my favourite mug, I couldn't resist spooning on a bit of the milk froth on at the end because I love the taste. I also made one in a glass to show you the layering effect. 

So pretty, easy to prepare, and it tastes delicious. I will definitely be making this one again soon! 

Now it's your turn to get creative....
