Pumpkin Spice Latte: Step-by-Step Guide
Step 1: Milk Preparation
Steam your milk. I used a microwave, but you can also opt for a stovetop, depending on your preference.
Step 2: Power On Your Nespresso Machine
Turn on the Nespresso machine. Allow it a moment to warm up until the brew button turns solid green.
Step 3: Capsule Insertion
Choose your desired coffee capsule (I went for a pumpkin spice cake variant). Insert it into the machine and secure it. If your glass doesn’t fit perfectly under the nozzle, tilt it slightly to ensure it’s stable.
Step 4: Brewing Time
Press the brew button to start the brewing process. The duration may vary depending on the type of capsule and fluid ounces. Enjoy the rich aroma that permeates the room.
Step 5: Milk Frothing
Retrieve the steamed milk from your microwave or stovetop. Add about one tablespoon of toasted marshmallow syrup to the milk. Using a hand whisk, froth the milk until it doubles in volume.
Step 6: Pumpkin Spice Addition
Once your coffee is brewed, add approximately a teaspoon of pumpkin spice syrup. Use a spoon to ensure it’s mixed thoroughly with the coffee.
Step 7: Combining Coffee and Milk
Carefully and slowly pour the flavored steamed milk into your coffee. This slow pour technique ensures that the liquid settles first, leaving a creamy foam on top.
Step 8: The Final Touch
For an added burst of flavor, sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice over the foam. Adjust the quantity based on your personal preference.
