Yummy Hot Holiday Drinks and NESCAFE Dolce Gusto Giveaway #mc #sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consultingfor NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a thank me for my participation.

Every year I host a Christmas Open House for family and friends. I serve warm holiday drinks, cold drinks and a lot of yummy Christmas goodies. This year I have a surprise for my warm drinking and coffee drinking guest. What is the surprise? I will be offering tasty drinks from my new single cup brewer, NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto GENIO Coffee Maker. 

Holiday drink recipes


NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is the only machine that truly delivers delicious, coffee house quality creations every time with patented smart capsule technology delivering up to 15 bars of professional pressure and espresso technology. The machine is a global brand in the Nestlé family and manufactured under the De’Longhi name. I'm so excited to have this powerful little machine right in my very own Susie's Cafe Kitchen! This machine is here just in time for all of my holiday entertaining. 

During my Christmas open house I have a hot cocoa bar which this year will include the NESCAFÉ  Dolce Gusto Coffee Maker for those wanting something a little different than wassail, hot cocoa or egg nog. Their line includes over 17 different hot and cold beverages and some have a tasty crema milk froth all made in under one minute! Here are their varieties:
  • Cappuccino Ice
  • Cappuccino
  • Carmel Latte Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Skinny Cappuccino
  • Nestea Peach Iced Tea
  • Skinny Latte
  • Latte Macchiato
  • Chococino
  • Mocha
  • Chai Tea Latte
  • Espresso
  • Caffe Lungo
  • Caffe Lungo Decaf
  • A Dark Roast
  • Morning Blend
  • Espresso Intenso
Coffee recipes

I know that creating coffee house coffee in your own home might sound complicated but not so with the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto machine. The machine does all the work for you. It has a cold and hot button as well as a dial scroll system to assist you in making quality beverages every time. I love that each coffee capsule has the actual dial mark that you need to set the machine to brew. How awesome is that? The custom dial does allow you to make your coffee stronger or weaker depending on your taste. 

If you are going to be doing a lot of entertaining I strongly suggest you add this machine to your holiday shopping list. This would also make a great gift for most everyone on your holiday shopping list.  This particular size machine is perfect for my college girls. I love that they can use the hot water for tea or coffee and also the cold water to make their favorite iced coffee drinks. Head on over to their website and use the special code GustoGift! and you will get 20% off of your order! What a deal!
