Today on our 12 days of Christmas we’re talking Nespresso. If you have a coffee lover in your family and have no idea what to get them, look no further than Nespresso. These machines are single serve coffee makers and can make espresso’s, coffee’s and even fancy coffee drinks like lattes, mochas and more, all through a pod style system.
Nespresso has a vast and fantastic line of coffee machines to match any coffee lovers needs. Whether you need a simple but strong espresso pick me, want a milk frother to make your favourite lattes, or if you want a machine that is able to make any coffees you like, Nespresso has you covered.
If a simple espresso or coffee is what gets you started in the morning, the Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine is perfect for you or as a gift.
This little and compact machine will fit nicely on your counter top without taking up too much space, and it’s very stylish too. The initial heat up time is less than 30 seconds so you can have your espresso quick. This machine comes with a sample pack of 16 Nespresso pods to get you started. With the adjustable cup holder and the varitey of coffee pods you can also have a regular cup of coffee with this machine.
Brewer and milk frother
If you want to give a machine with more drink options then the Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee System with Aeroccino might be the right fit. This machine has a very quick initial heat up time of 15-20 seconds, and on top of brewing your espresso or coffee, this machine also has a milk frother for making delicious specialty coffees.
My favourite feature of this machine is the cup warming plate. If you’re like me and you often make yourself a coffee then forget about it, then this feature will be greatly appreciated. It will keep your coffee at optimal temperature until you remember it.
This maple cinnamon coffee recipe from Nespresso.ca sounds like the perfect coffee for this time of year.
Maple Cinnamon Coffee
1 capsule Melozio
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Whisk until all have combined. Continue until brown sugar has dissolved and milk is heated through and foaming. Pour into VertuoLine Recipe Glass. Pour Coffee onto the milk mixture. Note: For an even sweeter and gourmet taste, add 1 tbs brown sugar into the milk mixture.
A coffee maker that has it all
Last of all I have to mention the De’Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro Espresso Machine.
If you have a family member that would have a constant flow of coffee available to them at all times (like my mother-in-law), you will become their favourite person if you gift them this beauty.
It also has a quick initial heat up time of 25 seconds. This machine also has 19 bars of pressure to make sure you get proper brewing every time, whether you’re brewing an espresso or coffee pod. Unlike the other two machines I mentioned, this one has a built in milk container with frother as well as the built in water container.
This machine would make me so happy and I’m pretty sure anyone that received this will have no complaints.
What I also love about the Nespresso line of coffee makers is that they are versatile for all coffee lovers. They have a huge line of coffee varieties from light roast to dark as well as flavoured coffees. With the different styles of machines, there is one for every price range. They are all super modern and sleek so they won’t take up a lot of counter space and they will look great on your counter too.
That’s it for Day 4 of our 12 days of Christmas gifts. What’s been your favourite gift so far?
