Right now I’m testing the new NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Eclipse, which makes a great fit in my new living room. Yes, I’ve got a little interior crisis two days ago and rearranged the whole living room (here you can see old pictures). Why haven’t I done that before? Looks so much better! As I said, 2017 is going to be a year of changes! I moved the dining table right next to the window and turned it around. Like that I could place my Nescafé Eclipse on the table. Always at hand for a hot latte macchiato in the morning or Chococino in the afternoon ( I love it). The good thing about it is that I don’t have to go to the kitchen any longer to get milk. I hadn’t thought that an automatic coffee machine would be that handy.

Nescafé Dolce Gusto Eclipse De’Longhi
Having a coffee machine in this size you should be a 100% in love with the design. The NESCAFE® Dolce Gusto® ECLIPSE in black metal is definitely one of my favourite models from NESCAFÉ and is also a stylish interior piece. When my roommate saw the machine first he thought it would be speakers. No my dear! He was even happier when I told him that it was a coffee machine. The Nescafé Dolce Gusto Eclipse has hidden water tank to the right and is easy to handle via touchscreen. It works super fast and is easy to close after use.
For preparing your coffee you’ll need two capsules – one with the coffee and the other one with the milk (or you drink it black). I always have the capsules ready next to the machine and I can easily brew fresh coffee while working on my computer. However, I can drink coffee only until noon otherwise I’ll be sleepless the whole night. Therefore, I love the Chococino and Nesquik capsules in the afternoon. I’ll have to try the Decaffeinato soon too! Yesterday when I got home from my long walk I was absolutely freezing. A hot Chococino was so good!
Last but not least I have great breakfast recipe for you – a Cortado Oatmeal. Ever heard of Cortado? Cortado isn’t just one of Nescafé’s coffee variations but also a way of drinking coffee in spain. In fact, it’s like a Macchiato but with more milk. In Bolzano they now serve it under Macchiatone. I found the recipe on Nescafés Website and had to try it. I’d never gotten the idea of preparing my oatmeal with coffee. Perfect wake up kick in the morning! And together with berries, bananas and superfoods it’s super healthy too! Exactly my thing.
Nescafé Dolce Gusto Cortado Oatmeal Recipe
- 200 ml milk (also with almond or soy milk)
- 100 g oatmeal
- 1 NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Cortado Espresso Macchiato
- 2 tbsp cacao (optional)
- 2 tbsp maple sirup
- 1 tsp Chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp cacao to sprinkle
- various fruits, I took blackberries, blueberries with banana, goji berry and cranberries
Heat the milk in a pan and add the oatmeal. As soon as they’re cooked in and soft add the Cortado coffee and some maple sirup and cacao. Afterwards you’ll garnish it with fruits and superfood. Easy peasy right?
Tell me if you’ve tried it! I’m curious what you’ll think!
Have a wonderful (hopefully not too frosty) Saturday!
