If you’re a coffee person, I suggest you invest in a Nespresso machine.

With this nifty gadget, you can effortlessly make your own flavorful lattes and cappuccinos at a fraction of the cost. 

And man, the quality of coffee it produces is just top-notch.

What’s more, the variety of coffees you can make with it is endless! I suggest you start with these 10. 

With these easy Nespresso recipes, you’ll bring out the barista in you.

1. Chocolate Hazelnut Latte

Chase away the chill with this hot chocolate hazelnut latte! The cold weather doesn’t stand a chance against the magical properties of this warming cuppa joe.

Also called hazelnut mocha, this drink is made of Nespresso Lungo pod, milk, and hazelnut spread. Think of it as a cross between hot mocha and Nutella, if you will.

Taking it to the next level is a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder on top. 

For people like me who enjoy their coffee sweet, this is pure heaven. All mornings should start with this!

2. Peppermint Marshmallow Latte

When it’s freezing outside, nothing beats the experience of curling up on your couch with your favorite book in one hand and this latte in the other. 

This holiday drink features Nespresso coffee, marshmallow creamer, whipped cream, and candy canes all together in one cozy mug.

I’m personally not a fan of drinks laced with way too much peppermint extract, which is why I truly appreciate this recipe. 

The peppermint flavor isn’t too bold in this latte. In fact, the mintiness complements the espresso and marshmallow cream just right.

3. Salted Caramel Latte

This next drink is my personal favorite, because of the salted caramel! Anyone close to me knows that I eat, live, and breathe salted caramel.

I’m very particular about my salted caramel, though. I don’t like it to be way too sweet, salty, or bland. 

Thankfully, this latte has just the perfect balance of coffee, milk, and salted caramel. 

Both the coffee base and the whipped topping feature salted caramel, which one might find too overwhelming, but trust me, the flavors are just right.

4. Irish Mocha

Ever had an Irish mocha? No? Well then, you’re in for a treat!

In case you’re not familiar, an Irish mocha is a mix of espresso, steamed milk, dark chocolate syrup, and peppermint.

Regular Irish coffee has a splash of liquor in it, but this one is alcohol-free.

Taking it over the top is a dollop of whipped cream and a garnish of chocolate shavings.

Aahh. I can’t think of a better time to enjoy this coffee than on Christmas morning.  

5. Honey Lavender Iced Latte

Let’s take a break from hot, warming coffees and pay close attention to this iced lavender latte.

If you enjoy sweet botanical flavors, this latte is a must-try.

A blend of sweet and light Nespresso Volluto, honey lavender syrup, and coconut milk creates this mind-blowing latte.

It’s subtly sweet and extremely creamy and refreshing. I love how the coconut milk gives it a hint of tropical flavor, too. 

Mixed with ice, it’s an excellent drink to cool you down on a hot and sunny summer day.

6. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Copycat

Who says you need to wait for fall to arrive to enjoy a delectable cup of pumpkin spice latte? Starbucks may only serve this iconic drink during the fall, but who cares?

As I said, it’s time to ditch the chain and make your very own coffee instead.

And yes, this copycat tastes just like the original. To me, it’s actually even better.

Two shots of espresso, pumpkin spice sauce, steamed milk, and a dash of pumpkin side are all it takes to make the magic happen. 

7. Dark Chocolate Orange Double Espresso Chocotini (virgin)

Citrus and chocolate team up to create a wonderful coffee flavor combination.

Chocotini, a portmanteau of chocolate and martini, is a refreshing cocktail made of vodka, Irish liqueur, and chocolate liqueur.

This recipe switches it up with a dash of orange zest, because how can you go wrong with chocolate and orange?

Oh, and by the way, this espresso is 100% alcohol-free. You’ll just mimic the flavors of the classic drink, but not the boozy after-effect.

8. Hygge Chocolate Coffee

The art of hygge is a Danish and Norwegian concept of enjoying and appreciating the simple things in life.

This can be anywhere from cozying up with a thick blanket to watching the snowfall from your frosty window to making coffee at home.

This hygge coffee isn’t just about the coffee, but the experience of making it, as well.

The key is to take things slow and find happiness in the small moments, such as when frothing the milk or measuring the ingredients.

But, of course, the flavor is also important. This coffee combines chocolate, espresso, cinnamon, and star anise. So yes, the flavor definitely doesn’t disappoint.

Enjoy this hot coffee with a slice of cake or pie for a relaxing winter afternoon.

9. Iced Vanilla Coffee Latte Recipe Using Nespresso

Sometimes, all your body craves is a plain and simple glass of cold latte. For moments like this, nothing beats the goodness of vanilla.

This is a refreshing blend of Nespresso, milk, sweetener, and ice cubes. It’s a no-frills beverage that doesn’t disappoint.

Despite being such a simple recipe, though, it still manages to create a pretty stunning presentation. The contrast between white and brown absolutely catches the eye.

10. Iced Nitro and Cafe Viennois

Here are two coffee recipes to cap off this list. Make the first one in the morning and the second in the afternoon!

First up is iced nitro, which is made of cold-brewed coffee and sugar. It’s simple, but it definitely gives you a much-needed morning jolt.

Next is cafe Viennois, which means espresso with cream. If you prefer your coffee milky, but not sweet, this is the brew for you.
