National Peppermint Latte Day is Dec. 3! The chill in the air means the holidays are right around the corner, and there’s no better way to get into the spirit of the season than by enjoying a perfect combination of coffee and candy cane flavors.
What’s a Latte?
Want to create a fantastic peppermint latte? It’s key to know how to get started. The base of any latte is one or two espresso shots, followed by the addition of steamed milk and a bit of foam. Lattes are super-customizable, making them the perfect way to get the espresso that you want — blended with the flavor that you love.
People have loved peppermint for ages — and for good reason! Ancient Egyptian history shows the use of peppermint for medicinal purposes dating back as far as 1550 B.C. Ancient Greeks used peppermint to cure hiccups, and modern medicine continues to use the herb to treat indigestion, colds, toothaches, sore throats and more.
Peppermint With a Twist
If you’ve got an in-office espresso machine, you’re on the right track to creating the perfect midday peppermint latte. Whether you’re looking for the eco-friendly Nespresso Momento 100 or the 13-setting Nespresso Gemini, the team at BostonbeaN is here to help you find the right Nespresso solution for your business.
After you add steamed milk to your espresso, consider adding one (or more!) of the following options to add the taste of the holidays to your latte:
- Whipped cream
- White, milk or dark chocolate
- Peppermint extract or peppermint candies
- Whipped cream topped with crushed peppermint candies or chocolates
- Chocolate syrup
Don’t forget to set up peppermint latte stirring sticks (candy canes) next to the espresso machine.
