MONTVALE, N.J., Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's the season of culinary creativity, when your daily coffee is transformed into Pumpkin Spice Dirty Chai Latte, Hazelnut Candy Latte or other exotic beverage choices.  There are those who enjoy the ritual of waiting in line in a crowded coffee shop, but many prefer the convenience, economy and fun of whipping up espresso-based concoctions at home.  Capresso presents seasonal recipes and tips for creating your own coffee bar at home.


Pumpkin Spice Dirty Chai Latte starts with a double shot of espresso, mixed with frothed Chai Tea flavored milk, and garnished with nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.   It only takes minutes to heat and froth the flavored milk in the Capresso froth TEC, an automatic milk frother that delivers thick, creamy froth at the touch of a button.  The removable German-made SCHOTT Duran glass pitcher adds convenience and visual appeal, and it is dishwasher safe for everyday use.

Caramel Cinnamon Latte makes the day sweeter by layering frothed flavored milk, whipped cream and spice on top of freshly brewed espresso.  The versatile froth TEC features temperature control for hot, warm or cold milk, with the option to froth or steam.  For this tasty treat, use the warm setting to mix and steam the milk, caramel and cinnamon.  Pour over your hot espresso, top with a dollop of whipped cream, add a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, and enjoy.

Hazelnut Candy Latte is a toasty-sweet drink where the flavor of espresso plays the starring role.  Brew barista style with the Capresso EC PRO, a commercial-grade espresso and cappuccino machine with special technology for faster and more consistent results, at just the right temperature.  The 15 bar pump provides optimal pressure for rich crema, the thin layer of foam that marks a perfectly brewed espresso.

Iced Kahlua Cappuccino is simple to prepare, with just three ingredients: espresso, milk and Kahlua coffee liqueur.  Use the cold setting on the Capresso froth PLUS or any other Capresso frother to whip up deliciously flavored cold milk to accent the rich flavor of freshly brewed espresso.

Capresso's automatic milk frothers can also be used for classic beverages such as steamed apple cider and hot chocolate. For recipes and tips, visit
