DRINK UP: 6 Fancy Coffee Drinks + Martello Stilista Espresso Machine Giveaway

There are good things and bad things about winter in Canada. I think many of us know the bad things so let’s not go there. One of the great things about it being freezing outside is that it gives you a good reason to whip up some toasty warm coffee inside.  Whether you’re coming in from an afternoon of sledding, skating, an absolutely exhausting day of shopping downtown, or just having a little get together there’s nothing more cozy that a fresh hot cup of coffee. Who are we kidding, is there ever a bad time for coffee? Now I’m not talking about you’re standard pot-0-coffee.

Skip the line at $tarbucks and impress your guests or just treat yourself with a fancy coffee you can make at home. That’s where the Martello Stilista Primeo single serve espresso machine and My Milky Pro frother will come in handy and oh yeah, I just happen to be giving a set away! See below on how to enter and be inspired by these 6 absolutely delicious coffee recipes to try this winter.

Is there a better combo than chocolate & mint? Add coffee and it’s perfection.  Peppermint Chocolate Coffee via Paula Deen.

What are the holidays without eggnog? If straight up isn’t your thing, try adding coffee and booze then see what you think. Try this Amaretto Spiked Eggnog Latte recipe found on Back to her Roots eggnog mocha

If the sweeter the better is your mantra then you’re going to love this Butterscotch Caramel Coffee recipe from Living Locurto. 

Holiday Coffee Drinks / The Sweet Escape

If you’ve ever had chile flavoured chocolate that you know how amazing the flavours are together. If you like a little bite with your toasty drink, try this mexican spiced mochacino recipe from Diethood.  mocha hot chocolate

And lastly, this one isn’t warm but it’s pretty damn hot. Knock your guests socks off with this sexy Espresso Martini Affogato recipe from Daydreamer Desserts.

Having a single-serve coffee machine like the Martello Stilista Primeo and the My Milky Pro milk frother will turn your kitchen into a fancy Italian coffee shop. There’s lots of single serve coffee machines out there but what’s so great about this one is that you get the real deal Italian style quality for an affordable price. The capsules are made in Italy with premium Italian roasted coffee. The machine & capsules are sold exclusively at Walmart for less than other similar machines. And the milk frother will let you make as many super fancy frothy drinks that your heart or cold hands desire. It’s not too bad to look at either, which is a bonus (also comes in white).

Martello Stilista Coffee machine Now here’s the good part, the giveaway. My friends at Martello Cafe were kind enough to give me one Stilista Primeo Coffee Machine, one My Milky Pro milk frother and a selection of coffee capsules to give away to one lucky reader. See the Rafflecopter widget below on how to enter. Contest runs today until 9am on December 24th where someone will get an early morning Christmas present.

    First.. let me say thanks so much for including my latte in your round up. I can’t wait to try the others. If I had this machine.. I’d make each one you’ve got here, but my fav to try first might be the Amaretto Spiced Eggnog for Christmas:) xx
