As a barista, I understand that not everyone has the time to whip up a cup of Nutella coffee every morning. Fortunately, this decadent beverage can be made ahead of time and stored for later use.

To make-ahead of your Nutella Coffee, you can mix all ingredients except the whipped cream in a blender, then pour the mixture into an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator for up to three days.

When you’re ready to enjoy your Nutella coffee, simply heat up the mixture on the stove or microwave until it’s hot enough to drink. Add whipped cream and some chocolate sprinkles on top for an indulgent touch.

Storing your Nutella coffee properly is important to maintain its taste and quality. You can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days or keep it frozen for later consumption. To reheat frozen Nutella coffee, thaw it for several hours or overnight in the fridge before heating it up.

Whether you want to make-ahead or store Nutella coffee, it’s crucial that you adjust the amount of water used when reheating. If your coffee is too strong, which may occur when reheating cold-brewed Nutella coffee, simply add hot water until you achieve your desired taste.

In conclusion, Nutella coffee is a delicious beverage that can be made ahead of time or stored for later consumption without compromising its flavor. With proper storage and reheating techniques, you can enjoy a sweet and creamy Nutella coffee anytime you want.

If you want to create a perfect Nutella coffee, I have some tips for you. These practical pieces of advice are based on my experience and will help you to elevate your coffee game.

1. Use High-Quality Coffee Beans

The key to making great coffee is starting with high-quality beans. You can use any type of roast that you prefer, but it is important to use freshly roasted beans. Freshly roasted beans provide a better flavor than those that have been sitting for a long time.

2. Experiment With Coffee-To-Nutella Ratios

Nutella is a sweet ingredient that can easily overpower the coffee flavor if used in excess. Therefore, it is essential to get the ratio of Nutella to coffee just right. You can start with 1 tablespoon of Nutella per cup of coffee and adjust according to your preference.

3. Froth Your Milk

For a professional-looking Nutella latte, frothed milk is key. It adds texture and creaminess to the drink and makes it more sophisticated. You can froth milk using a milk frother, French press or shake it vigorously in a jar.

4. Stir Thoroughly

When adding Nutella to your coffee, make sure it combines with the liquid thoroughly. You do not want any lumps of Nutella, or the mixture will be inconsistent, ruining the texture and taste.

5. Add Some Whip Cream and Chocolate Sprinkles

Add whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles to your Nutella coffee for an extra sweet treat in every sip. It looks fancy and tastes amazing!

In conclusion, follow these tips, trust your palate and experiment until you find the perfect combination for Nutella coffee in your cups!
