Nutella Coffee Delight Recipes by Coffee Life, a blog by EspressoWorks

Introduced in the Piemonte region of Northwestern Italy in 1964, Nutella is a sweet hazelnut cocoa spread that has grown more and more popular over the years — not only in Italy but also, in the United States, Brazil, New Zealand, India, and many other countries around the world. Nutella, which is manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero, is so popular that Poste Italiane, Italy’s postal service, issued a Nutella stamp in 2014 to celebrate its 50th anniversary. Nutella, which uses palm oil, is consumed on everything from pancakes to croissants to French toast to sweet crepes, and its popularity is not limited to bread and pastries: Nutella also tastes great in a wide range of coffee beverages. 

The easiest, quickest, and most convenient way to prepare a Nutella coffee drink is to simply add Nutella to black coffee, but there are many other Nutella coffee options as well. Here are some delicious Nutella coffee recipes.

Nutella Coffee Latte

Servings: 1

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons, Nutella 
  • 1 to 2 shots, hot espresso

  1. To make a Nutella coffee latte, start by using a spoon to spread a thin layer of Nutella on the rim of a coffee mug.
  2. Add one or two tablespoons of Nutella to the bottom of the mug.

  4. Pour in the steamed milk slowly. EspressoWorks’ multi-faceted espresso machine can be used for preparing the espresso shots as well as steaming the milk. Typically, lattes are prepared using whole cow’s milk, but alternatives to cow’s milk range from soy milk to almond milk to coconut milk, depending on one’s preference. Macadamia milk is another option.
