I love coffee and this machine has been great for those times where I need my morning java in a hurry and in 60 seconds I have coffee in hand. It’s also been nice for afternoon pick-me-ups when I need one cup, not a whole pot, of coffee. And it makes car-trip coffee a breeze.

One of my favorite coffee drinks, especially this time of year, is a Pumpkin Spice Latte (vegan, GF) – Brewing one cup of coffee in one minute in the machine, and adding the pumpkin milk mixture to the coffee is easy for an at-home pumpkin spice latte in minutes

I also love Vanilla Iced Coffee

I always add coffee to chocolate-based desserts because it brings out and enhances the chocolate flavor, but doesn’t actually make the dessert taste like coffee. You won’t end up with ‘coffee cake’ in the literal sense, not to worry.

These Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are richer and more decadent with just a splash of coffee added to the one-bowl, easy and fast batter. It’s the brownie base recipe that all my other brownie creations are derived from. I never cheat on this recipe because it produces the best, fudgiest, and densest brownies for those who love a really fudgy and not cakey brownie

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache – Made with one-bowl and a whisk, no mixer required. This is my go-to chocolate cake recipe and the cake is very chocolaty and has the springy and spongy nature of a cake-mix cake, but is made from scratch in minutes. Coffee plays a critical role in flavoring the batter and intensifying and enhancing the chocolate flavor
