If you're looking for a high quality latte at a fraction of the price, look no further than a latte made at home with a nespresso pod. We're going to take a good look at the best nespresso capsules for lattes around to help you find the perfect drink.
Nespresso is known for high quality coffee, but let's face it we all have our own prefernces. That's why this list is full of different types of coffee in addition to things that have been Nespresso branded.
What makes a great Nespresso latte?
There are two things that make a great latte. First of all is a great shot or two of espresso, which can be different based on each and everyone's personal tastes. That's why we've found a coffee pod for everyone, no matter where you are on the intensity scale.
Next of course is steamed milk. The great part about a latte is that it comes out well no matter what types of milk you are using, even if it is non-dairy milk.
Wether you use an Aeroccino milk frother or a different device, it's the other critical component to a latte.
Let's take a look at how to find your nespresso capsule the perfect latte.
