How do you make the best homemade coffee?

That's the most basic coffee recipe there is - and it's the base for many other delicious coffee recipes for you to enjoy.

What are good coffee based drinks to make at home?

There are so many coffee recipes to try making at home. You could try making a simple instant cappuccino, a caramel latte, or even a quick iced coffee to get yourself comfortable. Once you've mastered the simple recipes, you could try your hand at some of the others - a Roasted Almond Coffee, or a Nutmeg Spiced Latte. Your new favourite coffee recipe is waiting for you to try it.

What should I put in my coffee?

It’s all about personal taste. If you like your coffee sweeter, add some sugar or flavoured syrup. You can add milk, or a plant-based alternative like oat milk to soften the bold flavours slightly. You can easily add ice to cool your coffee faster, using frozen coffee ice cubes instead of water so that your coffee doesn't get watered down. Since coffee is such a versatile drink, it works well with a lot of different flavours, so why not add a bit of flavoured syrup to your coffee? Hazelnut, toffee, chocolate, and caramel are all delicious with coffee - individually, of course. Experiment with your favourite flavours and find out what works best for you.

How do you make a coffee drink like a barista?

Ask any barista and the answer will usually be the same - with time, practise, and good quality coffee as your base. NESCAFÉ instant coffee granules are 100% pure coffee, making them a great place to start any coffee recipe at home. Most coffee recipes start with an espresso base, which is a shot (or two, depending on your preferred intensity) of freshly brewed coffee. Once the espresso base is brewed to perfection, it's time to add the rest of the ingredients, whatever they might be - this could be milk, flavoured syrups, spices, or sweet sauces like caramel to heighten the flavour and experience of the coffee you're about to drink. If you want to get really fancy, you can always add some foam art to your coffee, like you would for a cappucino or latte, to give it that coffee shop look and feel.
