Eggnog Latte

Eggnog Latte

I realize that this post is just for people who have an espresso maker but I really love my morning latte and especially this eggnog latte so I decided to share this recipe with you.  These instructions are the way I make my latte with my Krups espresso maker.  Other espresso makers’ instructions may differ.

I have been drinking coffee in the morning since my early 20’s. My husband got me into drinking latte’s about 15 years ago and I absolutely love them. If I could, I would drink them all day long, but since I would never be able to sleep at night, I only have one each morning. Normally I have a vanilla latte with a cinnamon and sugar crust, but once the fall season hits, it’s eggnog latte time! I only add a small amount to keep it from being too high calorie but even just a little bit makes it so amazing. Just typing up this recipe has me wanting one!

How to Make an Eggnog Latte

Pour ½ cup of milk into a coffee cup; add 1-2 tbsp eggnog, more if desired.

Fill your espresso maker filter holder with the ground espresso and pack it firmly in place.

Place the filter holder into the machine and lock it in place.

Fill the frothing pitcher with water and pour it into the machine and replace the lid.

Turn the machine to the espresso setting to begin brewing espresso.

Once the brewing begins, and the espresso has started dripping into the metal carafe, flip the knob to the steaming setting.

Steam the milk, gently moving the coffee mug slightly up and down (to heat the milk through), as well as letting the tip of the steam rise just above the milk to get a nice froth.  Finish the steaming process once you have a nice froth and the milk is hot.

Turn the knob back to the espresso setting and let the remaining espresso drip into the carafe.

Flip back to the steaming setting to release all of the pressure from the steamer.

Carefully pour the espresso into the steamed & frothy milk, to taste

Sprinkle the top of the foam with a cinnamon and sugar mixture, to taste – I like to cover all of the foam while my husband likes just a touch.

Drink up and enjoy.

  1. i find that i can’t drink eggnog on its own, but i think i could enjoy it like this. an espresso maker has been on my wish list for some time!

  2. I don’t have a Krups or similar machine, and am not a fan of coffee. But I do have to say that I am jealous that you can already find eggnog in the store! Happy Thursday, Pam.
