the ingredients for making a "Caffé Arancione"

This drink is a nice change from the traditional Latte Macchiato often enjoyed from the Nespresso Lattissima+.  Arancione is the Italian word for orange.

If you aren’t up for the 2 shots of espresso, stir the contents and pour into separate demitasse cups before sprinkling the cinnamon and chocolate on top.

I’ve found that 1 Teaspoon of syrup is a good mixture for an espresso-sized coffee; given that this is a double-shot with extra milk, 2 Teaspoons gives it a perfect sweetness.

  1. Skim Milk - 0% Attach the milk tank filled with skimmed (no fat) milk

  3.   Place a heated cappuccino cup under the spout
  4.  Insert a Nespresso Pod in the machine

This drink yields approximately 90ml (3 oz.)

The cappuccino is a morning drink and a touch of Torani Vanilla Bean Syrup adds some sweetness in lieu of sugar.  Syrup Newbies: If you are new to adding syrups to your cappuccino, I have found that a full teaspoon per serving of cappuccino gives the right taste and sweetness.  If serving to a guest, I always drizzle the syrup on top and let them stir it in.  If I’m drinking at home for myself, I stir it up immediately and sometimes heat up the syrup in the cup (microwave) and then brew the cappuccino right on top before giving a quick stir.

Put some water in your cappuccino cup and put in microwave for 45 seconds to keep your drink warmer for longer.

Another method to keeping your drink hot is adding water to your cappuccino cup before making your cappuccino and microwaving for 45 seconds to heat up your cup (dump the water).

Especially with milk-based drinks, I find that a cold cup really zaps the heat out of the milk which comes out of the spout at 145°F (63°C).

(I saw this tip on a post over at Single Serve Coffee Forums and recommend checking it out – lots of great stuff in that review – thanks guys!)

Affogato translates to drowned in Italian.  Its simply a scoop of gelato or ice cream with a shot of hot espresso on top.  Other variations include a shot of Amaretto or other liqueur.  This is simply delectable, but make sure you begin to eat it before all the ice cream melts!

A Marocchino is a spectacular drink for those who like milk-based drinks and can handle a bit of depth to the regular espresso.  The cocoa comes across really nice, especially if you use a “Grand Cru” capsule like Apreggio or Decaffeinato Intenso that already have a cocoa aromatic note.

Check out this blogger’s explanation of why the Marocchino is her favorite drink

Prepare in a separate glass if you're serving to a guest and top with whipped cream!

I’ve really been happy with this Starbucks mix – the ingredients are simple and natural and the saturated fat (1g) and sugar (12g) are less than I’d expect from 2 tbsp of a chocolate mix.  The ingredients of the Starbucks mixture are simple, listed as:  Sugar, Cocoa (processed with Alkali), Vanilla.  Check out a previous recipe post how to make a hot chocolate with a Lattissima Plus from Nespresso.
