There are two things in life I will never give up; one of them is coffee.  So when Nespresso reached out about their new VertuoLine, well lets just say I didn’t blink.  You see I’ve actually had their original machine for years, and while it’s still lovingly used on a weekly basis I was anxious for the upgrade.  Mainly because the VertuoLine not only brews the espresso I’ve come to know and adore, but also full cups of coffee.  And this new and improved capability brings my ability to easily make a summer time favorite, caramel iced coffee.  The sweetness of homemade caramel syrup (which is ridiculously easy to make so never buy it), combined with frozen Nespresso coffee cubes (I suggest making tons of these and storing them for easy future use), and fresh Nespresso coffee topped off with a little cream…it just doesn’t get any better than that.  truly, MKR

    What a gorgeous photo and I love the idea of coffee cubes. I’ve been thinking about splurging on one of these machines and you’re making it pretty hard to resist. xx

  • I had no idea it was so easy to make your own caramel sauce! I love iced coffee too, especially with good old-fashioned ingredients. I just have a Keurig Vue for now, but can’t wait to try (WITH the caramel sauce!).

  • It’s SO easy…honestly I was surprised as well. Enjoy the coffee! xo
