You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg at a fancy café to get cold brew coffee, you can make it right at home with your single-serve brewer. For example, brew your favorite café-style drinks at home in under a minute with Nescafé® Dolce Gusto®’s iced cappuccino capsules.
Coffee Ice Cubes
Use the coffee left over from your drip coffee maker for coffee ice cubes. After freezing your left over coffee, add the coffee ice cubes to your iced coffee so it never gets watered down. Another option is to pour milk over the iced cubes for a refreshing iced latte style drink.
Make the perfect latte at home by investing in a milk frother, which is an inexpensive way to get that foamy texture we love in our lattes. Another option is to get Flavia Real Milk Froth Freshpacks. First add and brew the Real Milk Froth freshpack, then add the coffee or tea freshpack of your choice for a cafe-style specialty drink!
Just like the countless meal subscription services you see advertised, there are a variety of coffee subscriptions for coffee lovers. Save money and time by ordering your favorite coffee beans, K Cups or ground coffee right to your door.
Having the right coffee equipment at home will save you trips to your local coffee shop, since you will have everything you need to make a fresh cup of coffee right at home. Coffee equipment such as espresso machines, milk frothers, French press, pod brewers and more will save you money in the long-run.
Part of the reason we love those expensive trips to the coffee shop is the endless options of flavored coffee. But you can make any flavor you want at home! Stir equal parts water and sugar over low heat until it dissolves, then add the flavor of your choice; vanilla, caramel, pumpkin spice, etc.
