Nutella Cafe Latte

Nutella Cafe Latte #coffee #morning #foodie
It is one of those days when you feel that sunshine is so necessary to pick me up...yes, it's cloudy and it will be tomorrow again, and I am in need of sun and bright warm day! 
It is one of those days when you feel it will never end, and even with a mug of good strong coffee things don't change. 
I woke up with my son's sweet voice over my head saying: "mom, mom, mom, mom I'm hungry" ...there is nothing else to do, other than to get up especially since he gave me such a nice smile after all that "mom, mom..." but I so wished to stay under the blanket all day long"...Monday mornings! I really dislike them! 

Ever since I got, or better said won barista espresso, my mornings are just a little more bearable ahem! easier, plus on another note I don't have to go and get latte from Starbucks anymore. Even my kids often ask me to make them Nutella lattes for after school to go along with their favorite snacks. 
Addition of coffee for me was all I needed this morning to clear up, cheer up and get little sugaah...and of course find something useful to do! 

So without further ado, let me explain how to make this simple latte especially if you do happen to have latte machine...sorry but I still cannot make any designs on the top of the coffee to make it pretty, but maybe one day I will learn that too! 



Personally for me this is more dessert than a coffee, perhaps because I like my coffee strong, with little cream...lattes are of course always welcome but this was nice change! To make kid friendly just don't add any coffee and maybe swirl of chocolate syrup on top!
