There once was a day I spent around $4.20 close to everyday on visits to my beloved Caribou Coffee. I longed for the surprise special treat in the rim of my white chocolate mocha. I say surprise because you never really know if the barista would remember to put this fancy little chocolate covered espresso bean in the rim. After number crunching and with the realization I now have 3 children, work full time, push for additional side work through contracts, blogging and contributing to my local community I need my morning boost. This obsession to function was not ending for me anytime soon.
I was on a quest to make the most accurate replication of my morning beverage so I would not revert back to this delicious and costly obsession. I ordered a Ninja Coffee Bar from Amazon. A week later I returned it because though it made AMAZING coffee it was not going to make my mocha after picking and poking for information from my church barista. I knew I needed an actual espresso machine. After reading reviews the Nespresso espresso machine with frother was the right choice for me. I literally opened the package followed the run through instructions before use and the next morning in 3-4 minutes I had my homemade Caribou Coffee, a pump of white chocolate sauce with a delicious little treat in the rim of my mocha. Cheers to saving money, not waiting in line, and a yummy morning boost!
WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA RECIPE
1 Nespresso espresso capsule (your choice)
Fill frother to max indicator with whole milk (milk choice can vary)
Add 1 pump Torani white chocolate sauce to milk before frothing
Finally, dump both into your cup of choice - I enjoy the Contigo Travel Mugs even at home because it keeps my coffee hot while I'm tending to children and ease to use for on the go. Add your chocolate covered espresso bean to the top and your done... YUM!
