The Nescafé Alegria 510 may only have five buttons you can push to make coffee house-style drinks (Lungo, Americano, Cappuccino, Espresso, Latte Macchiato), but that doesn’t mean that’s all you can make with this delightful coffee machine. For starters, by simply adding flavored Coffee-mate creamers (the pumps work best) to your coffee cup before brewing your drink, you can make an entirely new drink such as a peppermint mocha cappuccino!
But if you’re looking for more of what you would actually find at your favorite coffee house, such as a café mocha or a caramel macchiato, you can easily make these as well with the Nescafé Alegria 510. Here are some tips on how.
A café mocha is really just a chocolate flavored cappuccino. The only real difference is that instead of topping the drink with frothed milk, it’s topped with whipped cream. How can you make this with the Nescafé Alegria 510 then?
Add chocolate flavoring to your cappuccino mug first, such as Coffee-mate’s Creamy Chocolate liquid creamer. Press the cappuccino button on the Nescafé Alegria 510, and then you have two options. You can either leave the frothed milk as is and drizzle some chocolate syrup on top, or you can scoop off the frothed milk with a serving spoon and add the whipped cream. Don’t forget the chocolate syrup drizzle on top no matter which you prefer.
Combine vanilla syrup and caramel syrup and pour the concoction into your cappuccino mug before brewing the drink (one ounce combination total). Press the latte macchiato button on the Nescafé Alegria 510, and when it is done, simply drizzle caramel syrup on top!
This drink is unbelievably more complicated to make without a Nescafé Alegria 510.
This drink is made very similarly to the caramel macchiato, except you only need to add one ounce vanilla syrup by itself to your mug. Press the latte macchiato button, and then drizzle hazelnut syrup on top.
Espresso Con Panna
This one is probably the easiest of all to make with the Nescafé Alegria 510. All you need is an espresso shot glass, one that will hold a double shot instead of the usual single, and whipped cream. Brew your one shot of espresso as usual, and then add a dollop of whipped cream on top! Drizzle the top with caramel or chocolate syrup for an extra sweet treat.
Of course most of the fun you will have with this machine is creating your own coffee drinks! Mix all kinds of flavored syrup in your cappuccino or latte macchiato, or add eggnog to the milk for an eggnog cappuccino or eggnog macchiato! By having fun and being willing to experiment, you will become your own master barista in no time. We even have the perfect bundle package to get you started on your path to coffee drink bliss.
